Titleist Order Of Merit
HowDidiDo is proud to announce the return of the Titleist Order of Merit for all HowDidiDo members!
This year we are delighted to once again be associated with and sponsored by Titleist, the #1 Ball in Golf, and our media partner Global Golf Post. Entry is FREE and you stand the chance of winning a host of great prizes from Titleist just for playing golf the way you always have done – we’ll monitor your medal rounds, like we always do, but will also update your ranking in the Titleist Order of Merit so you can see how you compare to the rest of the country.
The rules remain the same as previous years with your best five qualifying rounds counting towards your final Order of Merit score. The competition will run throughout the golf season and end in September 2017 to allow HowDidiDo and Titleist time to collate the teams for the finals.
More than 22,000 of you took part in 2016 and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017, as well as a host of new competitors, in what has become one of the largest participation sports events in the world! So with great prizes to win make sure that you get your golfing buddies lined up to take part as you pit you golfing skills against an audience of over 540,000 golfers in the UK and Ireland.
For the 2017 competition only competition rounds at your HowDidiDo registered clubs can count towards this Order of Merit. We cannot include away rounds in the Titleist Order of Merit with HowDidiDo.

Points for the OOM for the period from 1st April 2017 to the 17th September 2017 will be carried over to the Grand Final. The points system for the Grand finals will be reviewed and published prior to the Grand Final.
The scoring system will work as follows:
HDID Order of Merit - Scoring Outline
The best 5 qualifying medal rounds for each player during the Order of Merit start and end dates are given a points score based on the following system.
- The points total across the 5 rounds is the players OOM score and this will be used to place them on the leaderboard/s.
- Ties will be resolved by comparing individual OOM round scores starting with most recent.
Player 1 is placed higher than player 2. Round 5 is equal for both players, so go back and look at round 4.
There will be a separate leader board for each division within each home nation (Exact division handicap ranges TBC).
- Juniors are male and female participants that are under 18 years of age when applications open on the 1st April 2017
- Juniors are excluded from main divisions and participation at the grand final but will have their own leader board and prizes.
