World Ranking Update

David Feldberg regains the top ranking in the World hot off the heels of his come-from-behind European Open victory today. Nikko Locastro slipped to second in the World with a 10th place finish. He would have needed to finish at least 3rd to retain the top ranking. Paul McBeth had some rough holes at the European Open but his overall play in recent events leading up to today has moved him up into a tie for 4th in the PDGA World Rankings with Matt Orum who's recovering from a recent hand injury. Young Will Schusterick had a great finish in 4th today and made a big jump from 19th to 12th in the World standings. The only thing keeping him from the top 10 in the World is his finish at Pro Worlds last year. He'll have a chance to make a big move with a top 10 finish at Pro Worlds coming soon.

Valerie Jenkins extended her reign as the top ranked woman with a double digit victory at the European Open. Melody King is moving up the rankings breaking into the top 10 for the first time. Sarah Stanhope currently in second doesn't tour as much as some of the other top women but will still be dangerous defending her World title in the next few weeks in Santa Cruz.
