ORDER OF MERIT 2016/2017

EWBG stages six ranking events each season at which players can earn Order of Merit points depending on their position in each tournament.

Players are also awarded 1 point for participating in the monthly Stableford competition which is played on a player's home course. There is an overall Order of Merit that includes all players and a Seniors Order of Merit for players over the age of 65.

The 2016/2017 Order of Merit runs from the August Stableford competition in 2016 until the completion of the British Blind Masters in August 2017.

The top nine players available in the final table automatically qualify for a place in the England and Wales Team to face Scotland in the Annual International - The Auld Enemies Cup.  An additional 4 players  will be chosen by the Captain.
