ELIGIBILTY & GENERAL NOTES
General Notes:
  1. Eligibility: Players must be a member in good standing with their respective provincial golf association and Golf Canada.
  2. A maximum of ten (10) tournaments from the period from September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019 will count for points on the National Order of Merit. A player may play in more than ten (10) events on the tournament listing but only the best ten (10) events will count for points.
  3. Please refer to the Point Grid for the breakdown of points by referring to the starting value of each event and by the number of players in the field. If two or more players tie for a position,other than first, points will be shared. For example, two players tied for 2nd will share 2nd and 3rd place points. If an event has a cut in the field to a number of players less than the number of places on the point grid, points will only be awarded to players in the final standings (Ie; Cut to low 40 & ties - then only those players earn points).
  4. Qualifying points (eg. for USGA Events) will be awarded only to those players that earn a spot in the championship field through a regional qualifying event. Qualifying points will not be awarded to players who receive an exemption (of any kind) into a tournament.
  5. *New for 2019* Events will be reviewed weekly following the release of the WAGR rankings. If the WAGR ranking of an event listed in the schedule above changes, the starting point value will be automatically adjusted up or down by a maximum of 1000 points. Note: This only applies to events with a WAGR ranking of A, B, C or D. (eg. If the Porter Cup gains a WAGR ranking of A in 2019, we would automatically increase the starting point value from 7000 to 8000 points).
  6. In general, the committee may add / delete events or edit the starting point value in the above tournament listing based on strength and depth of field that may come to their attention throughout the 2019 golf season. Sanctioned events and their relative weighting will be reviewed annually based on the number of participants and strength/depth of field.
  7. Please note that the OOM ranking will be considered final two weeks after the August 31st, 2019 deadline for counting events. Any corrections (regardless of fault) will not be made after September 14th, 2019.
  8. If you notice any duplicate profiles, corrections or omissions that need to be made to your OOM point total, please contact Golf Canada at 1.800.263.0009 x204 or ephoenix@golfcanada.ca.
