The Executive Committee decided unanimously to update the Order of Merit from the start of the 2017 season.

 

The main change is the length of the ranking period which has been shortened from a two-year period to a rolling one year period (365 days). The best five ranking points performances are still used to generate the Order of Merit.

 

What this means is we achieve consistency in the rankings which is something that we were never get able to achieve with fluctuations at the start of the season under the previous system.

 

Following the 2018 AGM, two other changes have been implemented. One was that there will be a guaranteed minimum of 1,000 ranking points available at any tournament where there are at least six members of the current top 16 in the Order of Merit present. Players who finished the previous season as Category 1 can only drop to Category 2 in the following season.

Any points due to expire in between tournaments which for example would happen for anyone who had taken part in the 2016 Midlands Open would not be applied to the Order of Merit until after the 2017 British Masters. So after the 2017 British Masters, all tournaments from the 2016 British Masters onwards are within the one year rolling period and the best five scoring events will be taken to calculate the updated Order of Merit.
