British Minigolf Association’s Official Strokeplay Order of Merit Rankings Published PDF Print E-mail

Michael Smith from Oxford tops the BMGA’s Official Strokeplay Order of Merit National Minigolf Rankings for 2012.

The British Minigolf Association’s 2012 season has come to an end and the final ranking lists have been published. In the BMGA’s Official Strokeplay Order of Merit Michael Smith was ranked number one with a total of 5,590 points. Adam Kelly from Linton, Cambridgeshire was second on 4,690 points and Cambridge’s James Rutherford was third with 4,480 ranking points. Rounding out the top five were Sean Homer from Greenhithe, Kent on 4,330 points and Canterbury’s Marc Chapman with 3,955 points.

The BMGA’s British Number One player Michael Smith said "I'm absolutely delighted with my minigolf year. I set myself some ambitious targets at the start of the year but 2012 has far exceeded anything I could have ever imagined. I think I speak for most, if not all, of the regular players on the BMGA Tour, when I say this has been a great year for the tour and the sport of Minigolf in this country. The standard of play from our players, both in Britain and abroad, has been excellent and we have an exciting future ahead of us. I'd like to thank the BMGA Chairman Sean Homer and all of the BMGA Executive Committee, as well as Marion Homer and Emily Gottfried for all their hard work and fantastic organisation. If the 2013 BMGA Tour is half as good as 2012, we'll be set for another great year."
