The Challenge Tour's season-long Rankings contest is a fiercely fought journey across three continents for a place in the top 15, and European Tour graduation.

In 2017, Tapio Pulkkanen topped the Order of Merit after an outstanding season which saw him secure his first victory at the Kazakhstan Open and finish as a runner-up on three further occasions. 

Coming through the ranks of the Challenge Tour in recent years have been some of golf's most exciting young talents, including European Tour winners Jordan Smith and Dylan Frittelli, while world stars such as Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer, Henrik Stenson, Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood all spent their formative years on Europe's top developmental tour.
