2018 Orders of Merit - Things are Hotting Up!
The latest positions in the 2018 Junior Orders of Merit have been updated and after last Sundays event at Mullion things have really hotted up at the top of the rankings with just the one event to come.
In the U18 Scratch the win by Ewan Warren (St Austell) has moved him up right behind long term leader Liam Wilson (Truro) with just 1.5 points separating the pair. This year's winner will almost certainly come from the two of them with Thomas Stephens (Truro) a little adrift in 3rd spot. D-Day will be PGA Professional Nick Williams' sponsored Junior Open at St Enodoc GC on Sunday 7th October.
In the U16 Scratch element the same position exists with Wilson ahead of Warren by 2.33 points with a full 20 available at the final event.
The U16 Handicap OoM sees Warren with his nose in front 65.50 by less than a point though from St Mellion's Ryan Gregory (64.83). Wilson sits in third spot here on 61.00.
Please be aware the St Enodoc Junior Open is hosted and managed by the club and to enter you should contact them. There is a link below to a Poster and Entry Form. Also please note that handicap limits apply and will determine which of St Enodoc's two courses you will play on.

2018 CGU Junior Order of Merit - Basic Info
The Junior Committee has decided which 7 events will form the Junior Order of Merit for 2018 and these are listed below.
The Junior Committee determined the previous year’s OoM comprised too many events and whilst well intentioned was unnecessarily large. The Junior OoM thus returns to its former state with a smaller number of events. Choosing which events to include was considered carefully and no inference should be drawn by club opens which are not included. Year on year the Committee will review the venues.
A player's best 5 scores from the 7 counting events will determine his Order of Merit position.
