Due to unforeseen circumstances, this year’s SEG Seniors’ Championship (Alan Hobson Trophy), an England Golf Order of Merit event due to be held at Blackmoor Golf Club from 20-21 July, has been cancelled at short notice.
As a result of this unfortunate cancellation, and in the interest of fairness to all competitors, the corresponding championships in the Midlands, North and South West regions will still take place but will have no England Golf OOM ranking points attached to them.
While this may come as a disappointment to some competitors, selectors will still take into account performances at these events ahead of announcing England teams for the European Seniors’ Team Championship and Home Internationals later in the season.
The leading four players from the England Golf OOM will gain automatic places in the six-man team for the European Seniors’ Team Championships to be held in Estonia in September.
The leading five players from the England Golf OOM will earn automatic selection for the seven-man Home Internationals team for the event to be held at Pyle and Kenfig later that same month.
All remaining selections will be made in accordance with the criteria set out in England Golf’s 2022 Selection Policy document.
