Andy Wilde takes the honours as he tops the Season Only Rankings in his first year on the tour PDF Print E-mail

The Sussex Wasps Minigolf Club's novice tops the rankings in his first season on the BMGA tour.

The final Season Only Rankings list was released this week (see below) following the final stroke play event of 2015, the Star City Open. A terrific season of 11 strokeplay events saw Andy Wilde holding off stiff competition throughout the year to take the title at the end of the season.

Andy will receive the Season Only Rankings shield - his to keep for the 2016 season - that will be presented at the first event in 2016 and will be awarded to the player at the top of the rankings after each season. He will also receive the mini shield for winning the Category 2 title (his to keep forever!). The other shield winners for 2015 are Michael Smith (Category 1) and Natasha Morgan (Category 3/4).

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 will have to prizes for the overall leader and category leaders at the season end). This season sees a change in the Category 4 status with novice players taking part in their first 3 events being classed as Cat 4 before moving into Cat 3 for their fourth event onwards. Category 3 & 4 will be combined for the 2015 SOR.

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. 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

  • Consecutive improvement round by round - 25 points per round

  • Personal Best - 50 points

 

The final 2015 season only rankings following the Star City Open are as follows:
