New 2012 POY/ROY Process

The PDGA Board of Directors has approved a new point system to determine the annual Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year awards.  The system is designed to award points based on tournament performance and will be easier for players and members to track.  The system will be used for the 2012 tournament season for all North American players for the  POY/ROY awards presented in 2013.  PDGA Europe will use a similar system based on their events to determine their annual award winners.

New updates posted for Ratings, for World Rankings and for Players & Rookies of the Year

Record setting performances all around. David Feldberg has now tied Ken Climo with a 1044 rating, so far the best of all time. Last update, Climo called Feldberg to let him know he was still a point short when he reached 1043. (These guys watch the ratings like a hawk.) Feldberg had to play just a little bit better including Pro Worlds and finally made it. Climo first got the 1044 rating in September 2002 and held it for the next update in March 2003. We'll see if David can hold it for at least the same time period as Climo, or perhaps, can he beat the 1044?
