Tweaks to 2013 schedule

Tweaks to 2013 scheduleRevised line-up of events for men’s OOM

ENGLAND GOLF has announced a revised schedule of tournaments and championships that will form the basis for the 2013 Titleist/FootJoy Order of Merit whilst the Titleist/FootJoy Boys and Seniors Orders of Merit remain unchanged.

The new events in the men’s line-up include the well-established Hampshire Salver, held at at Blackmoor and North Hants Golf Clubs, as well as the inaugural North of England Open Amateur Championship, due to take place at Pannal Golf Club in October.

In 2012, Neil Raymond of Corhampton Golf Club, narrowly took the men’s title ahead of fellow England squad member Craig Hinton, from The Oxfordshire, and both will challenge again for the 2013 crown.

RUNAWAY             

They will be joined by North Foreland’s rising-star Max Orrin - the winner of the Titleist/FootJoy Boys Order of Merit in 2012 - as well as a host of other England internationals who are gearing up for the 2013 season.

Andrew Stracey from Denham was the runaway winner in the Seniors ranks last year and once again he will be challenged by international colleagues.

England Golf Performance Director, Nigel Edwards, commented: “The Titleist FootJoy Orders of Merit continue to provide a recognised schedule of major events at boys, men’s and seniors levels.

“The Hampshire Salver is a welcome addition early in the domestic schedule and the North of England Open Amateur promises to be a great way to conclude the season.”

SECURED

Previous England Golf Order of Merit winners include a host of players who have gone on to enjoy successful European Tour careers, amongst them Tom Lewis, Ross McGowan, Gary Lockerbie and Chris Wood, who recently secured his first European Tour title in the Qatar Masters.

Another former Order of Merit champion, Gary Wolstenholme, is carving out a successful career on the European Senior Tour.
