The first 2016 BMGA Shield results published following the English Open PDF Print E-mail

Running season long, the newly renamed BMGA SHIELD (formerly known as the Season Only Rankings) were first introduced in 2009 with the aim of giving all players an immediate and season specific breakdown of where they stand in relation to all the players that participate in tournaments each year.

The BMGA SHIELD will be awarded to the player topping the standings at the end of the season. Max Plaice won the shield in 2014 with Andy Wilde taking the honours for 2015.

2015 Winner - Andy Wilde with the SHIELD

There will once again be additional trophies for the category leaders at the season end. Players in Category 4 are novice players taking part in their first 3 events before moving into Cat 3 for their fourth event onwards. Category 3 & 4 will be a combined category for the 2016 SHIELD.

The focus is to reward players for their results across the year, with 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
  • Personal Best - 50 points 

     

 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

 


The first results for the BMGA Shield following the English Open are as follows:
