PDGA World Rankings: Year End 2009
The PDGA World Rankings for Year end 2009 have been posted here: http://www.pdga.com/WorldRankings
The Year end Rankings use a slightly different process than the World Rankings throughout the year. Only events played during 2009 are included which means the 2008 Players Cup and 2008 Japan Open results are not included. In addition, the later the date an event was played during 2009 does not earn additional weight in the calculation like it does during other WR updates during the year.
Despite the slightly different calculations, Josh Anthon and Valarie Jenkins maintained their top spots followed by Nikko Locastro and Des Reading, respectively. The full WR lists for men and women also includes the top rated players in each country. By the end of 2009, 28 countries had male players and 16 had female players.
