PERFORMANCE RANKING / ORDER OF MERIT using Gross over Par
The process and calculation of a Performance Ranking which uses GROSS OVER PAR and a STROKE DIFFERENTIAL (SD) is explained below:
- The performance ranking can be based on a rolling calendar year (12 months)
e.g. when the scores are applied for Jan 2019, the scores for Jan 2018 fall away.
- A Best number of counting rounds, of the pre-determined sanctioned tournament rounds, to qualify for inclusion on the OoM, is VARIABLE and can be set at Best 5, Best 10 etc.
- Minimum number of rounds required to be on the Ranking can be set 2, 3, 4, 5 etc.
- Only stroke play competition rounds in Counting Events, will be considered for the OoM ranking.
- The GROSS OVER PAR is the result of the calculation that is obtained for each tournament round, using the Par of the course.
THE CALCULATION WILL BE WORKED AS FOLLOWS:
Players’ scores for each round are compared to the PAR of the course.
This is done for each individual stroke play round making up the Counting Event. The player is then given a STROKE DIFFERENTIAL for that round.
- The STROKE DIFFERENTIAL is the Players score minus the Par for the course. (Note: A negative number is better than a positive number)
- All the players STROKE DIFFERENTIALS are added together and divided by the number of rounds the player has played giving the player an ‘average’ STROKE DIFFERENTIAL.
- The players on the Ranking will be listed from best to worst with each players’ STROKE DIFFERENTIAL (+/- Par), being displayed together with the number of counting rounds he has. Only Players who are eligible are given a ranking position.
The Ranking will be updated at the conclusion of each counting tournament.
