Updated Season Only Rankings published following the Kent Open PDF Print E-mail

Running season long, the Season Only Rankings (SOR) were first introduced in 2009 with the aim of giving all players a more immediate and season specific breakdown of where they stand in relation to all the players that participate in tournaments each year. The SOR do not replace the Official Rankings (which are still the ultimate benchmark for players) but run in tandem with the official rankings.


The Season Only rankings were reviewed as part of the AGM in March with a motion passed relating to prizes for the overall leaders, category leaders at the season end as well as the introduction of an additional category being introduced (Category 4 for players in their first season on the tour - NB any Cat 4 player picking up prize money twice in their first season will automatically move to Category 3 - the first player to move from 4 to 3 is Paul Preston, winning prize money at the British Masters and the British Championships this season. Also as soon as any players reaches category 2 status, they will no longer be classed as a Cat 4 in the future).

The focus of the SOR is to reward players for their results across the year, with particular emphasis on Personal Best performances, improvements round to round within any given tournament along with specific points for aces and a variety of other rewards. The breakdown of how the rankings are made up are listed below:

  • Relative result in a tournament - 10 points per place

The following points are multiplied based on Category Status i.e. Cat 2 sees the points x 2, Cat 3 x 3 and Cat 4 x 4

  • Aces - 10 points each
  • Hatrick of aces - 50 points
  • Sub 36 rounds - 10 points each
  • Setting or equaling an Official Course Record - 50 points
  • Beating an existing Official Course Record - 100 points
  • Consecutive improvement round by round - 25 points per round
  • Personal Best - 50 points
