Order Of Merit
An Order of Merit is established for each year and will determine the competitors in the end of season Tour Champs.
Merit points are awarded on the basis of 40 to the winner, 39 for 2nd, 38 for 3rd and so on.
At each event the Top 40 players will receive Order of Merit points.
After the 40th place these players will be deemed to have missed the cut and one point will be given.
an additional 10 Merit points are awarded to the top 10 players.
Order of Merit points are given on an individual basis and only in Singles events.
Any tied scores will be decided by a card play off over the last nine holes as they appear on the scorecard. Merit points will then be issued based on finishing position.
The final order of merit will be established after all the events in that year’s tour schedule have been played.
To be eligible for merit points, a competitor must be a current member of the Fore King Golf Tour for which the annual fee is £40 each year.
Please see Tour Membership details for more information.
New competitors must join the Tour before their first event if they wish to be eligible for merit points from that event. Order of merit points will not be allocated retrospectively.
All competitors need to play in at least 3 events, to be eligible to qualify for the Tour Championship.
Event entries start from just £45.00 and in the case of the Majors may include food as well as prizes for the Winner, Runner-up & 3rd place.
