* Scores in the County Under 16 Championship only qualify towards the Under 16 and Under 14 Order of Merit tables.
Points are awarded in accordance with the tables below to the top 40 players (or anybody tying for 40th place) in each of the qualifying events. A player will score points at each event in all of the age groups for which they qualify.
So for example, in any of the qualifying Junior Opens, if a 13 year old player has the best overall gross score, he will win 100 points towards his total in each of the three age group related tables.
In the Under 18 table, the total points scored by each player is calculated by adding the best six points scores from the nine available events.
In the Under 16 and Under 14 tables, the total points scored by each player is calculated by adding the best six points scores from the ten available events.
|Finishing Position||Points in a category A event||Points in a category B event|
Points are only awarded to players who are eligible to represent the County in a team match. If a player who is not eligible to represent the County finishes in the top 40 then those points are simply discarded e.g. if an event is won by a player outside of the County then no player scores the 500 (Category A) or 400 (Category B) points available for that event.
Prizes are awarded at the end of the season to the leading players in each of the age related tables. A player may win more than one prize. In the event of a tie for one of these places, the higher prize is awarded to the player who scored the highest number of points in any single event. If still tied, then the prize is awarded to the player with the next highest points score in any single event, and so on. If both players have identical records for the season then the prize is shared.
In the Under 18 table, then if it is not possible to complete one of the qualifying events, then the prizes will be allocated on a "best 5 from 8" basis. If two events are cancelled, then it will revert to the "best 5 from 7". If three events are cancelled, then it will revert to the "best 5 from 6". If four or more events are cancelled, then scores in all qualifying events will count towards the final placings.
In the Under 16 and Under 14 tables, then if it is not possible to complete one of the qualifying events, then the prizes will be allocated on a "best 6 from 9" basis. If two events are cancelled, then it will revert to the "best 5 from 8". If three events are cancelled, then it will revert to the "best 5 from 7", if four events are cancelled then it will revert to the "best 4 from 6" and if five events are cancelled it will revert to the "best 4 from 5". If four or more events are cancelled, then scores in all qualifying events will count towards the final placings.
