The TopGolfer Order of Merit
The TopGolfer Order of Merit (OOM) is your chance to experience life on tour. Accumulate points throughout the season, climb the Order of Merit Table, qualify for the PlayOffs at Rathsallagh Golf Club and ultimately secure an invite to the TopGolfer Tour Championship at Druids Glen on 7th October 2017. Deadline for joining the TopGolfer Order of Merit (excluding event winners who are automatically added to the leaderboard) is 9th July 2017, after our events at The Grange GC and Carlow GC.
Here's how it works
Each of the 36 TopGolfer Tour Events carries a pot of OOM Points. Competitors at every event are awarded OOM Points based on where they finish in the field and these points accumulate throughout the season.
There is no limit to the number of events competitors can enter to earn OOM Points.
Once all the Tour events have been completed, the top 50 competitors (and ties) in the Order of Merit Table will be invited to compete in the TopGolfer Tour PlayOffs. You can see the latest Order of Merit standings HERE.
The TopGolfer Tour PlayOffs
The TopGolfer Tour PlayOffs is an 18-hole shootout event to be played at Rathsallagh Golf Club on Friday 15th September 2017.
To qualify for the event, a competitor must finish in the top 50 of the Nature Valley Order of Merit at the end of the 36-Tour event season.
As a Championship Event, there will be a larger number of points up for grabs.
At the end of the PlayOffs, all competitors will be allocated OOM Points as determined by their finishing position. Once these points are added to those already acquired a final Order of Merit Table will be completed.
The TopGolfer Tour Championship
The 27-hole season finale will take place at Druids Glen Resort on Saturday 7th October 2017. Qualifiers for twenty-four invitations to this special weekend are as follows;
1) TopGolfer Tour Champion 2016 – Mr. Michael Stewart.
2) Top 10 finishers at TopGolfer Tour PlayOffs 2017.
3) Top 13 on OOM Leaderboard, once PlayOffs points get added to the OOM Seasons total, and qualifiers from the PlayOffs are removed from the table.
