The first World Rankings with 2009 events haven been published and are available at www.pdga.com/WorldRankings. There is no change at the top for men or women with Nathan Doss and Valarie Jenkins still leading their rankings. The early results that included the Memorial provided little movement for most of the top women which has increased by two more women with ratings over 899.
Avery Jenkins slipped ahead of The Champ into third and it looks like he's been playing the best among the top 10 over the past 6 months. John E McCray could be in the top 3 simply with a top 10 finish at Worlds but unfortunately did not attend. Nikko Locastro's top performances recently will start paying off with a steady move up the ladder but he needs a top 10 in the this year's USDGC in order to make a large leap.
