Launch of the Worcestershire Boys Order of Merit 2019

WORCESTERSHIRE BOYS ORDER OF MERIT 2019

Although you can never be sure, it looks like the worst of the winter weather is coming to an end and I am sure that we are all keen to plan our schedule for the year ahead. The 2019 Boys Order of Merit starts with 3 events in May - the traditional season opening Junior Open at Churchill & Blakedown GC on Saturday 11th May, followed by Junior Opens at Gaudet Luce GC on Sunday 26th May and Kings Norton GC on Wednesday 29th May. Why not get the season off to a flying start by playing all 3 of these events? The full list of confirmed 2019 events is shown below. Most of these events already have entry forms available on the golf empire website:

The Boys Order of Merit is run alongside the individual events, and you do not have to enter separately. Points will be awarded to any Boy who is a Home Member of a Worcestershire Union affiliated club who finishes in the top 10. As last year, points will be awarded as follows:

1st place 150 points
2nd place 120 points
3rd place 100 points
4th place 90 points
5th place 80 points
6th place 70 points
7th place 60 points
8th place 50 points
9th place 40 points
10th place 30 points

Double points will be awarded for the Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs Boys Amateur Championship event which is being held at The Vale G&CC on Wednesday 24th July, as this is held over 36 holes. (Please note that there is no minimum age limit to enter the 36 hole Boys Championship.)

All points for 2019 will be awarded on the basis of nett positions in the events.

A cumulative points table will be posted on the Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs website https://www.worcestershireamatuergolf.co.uk throughout the season.

The overall winner will be the player who has accumulated the most points over the season, up to and including the final event at Moseley GC. The more events you enter, the more chance you have of winning.

Prizes are to be awarded to the top 3 players over the season. All ties will be decided by a count back on the number of 1st place finishes, then 2nd place finishes if required, and so on, over the whole season. The decision of the Worcestershire Boys Order of Merit 2019 Organiser is final.

The Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs would like to thank the 14 Worcestershire affiliated clubs who have agreed that their Junior Opens can be used as the basis for the Worcestershire Boys Order of Merit 2019.

It is not too soon to map out your season, and get your entry forms in for these Junior Opens. Good luck.

Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs Secretary
