The PDGA World Rankings have been updated for June 2014. Paul McBeth continues on Top of the World followed by David Feldberg. This is the first update of 2014 following the Japan Open, our first Major of 2014, won by Ricky Wysocki currently ranked fourth. Valarie Jenkins retained her top spot boosted by her first place finish at the Japan Open. But she's now joined by Paige Pierce who is tied with Jenkins in a dead heat for first in World Ranking points.

What's up with rankings and ratings as we approach yearend?

Valarie Jenkins regains top spot with recent wins over Sarah Stanhope at U.S. Womens Nationals and the Augusta Classic (pictured).

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

RATINGS
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?

How they work and what's been improved.

PDGA World Rankings started at the end of 2005 partly at the urging of Ken Climo after talking with me about how ratings alone didn’t indicate how players at the top actually fared when playing against each other.
