Actually ......... (Now that I've spotted this thread) ............ there was a certain criteria involved in calculating who indeed was ...... The Best Player Never To Have Won An Order Of Merit Event (TBPNTHWAOOME).
That criteria include obviously, never having won an OOM ............. but it also included a "minimum games" component, to be fair to those who may put in a few good early games in their career, and suddenly get landed with this award.
The measure once you were qualified via enough games, was the average score for each player, over the total number of games played.
The initial "minimum games" requirement from memory, was 8 ..................
DJCraig in fact at the time, would have won the trophy, but he had only played 4 or 5 events to date.
Of late "Bully of Bushranging" fame was rapidly closing in on our man Frank, but I think Bully overdid things by having an actual win.
Not sure of the latest factual standings for "TBPNTHWAOOME" ........ but yes, I do believe Frank is right up there in the running .......
