2021 PDGA Player & Rookie of the Year

The 2021 PDGA Player of the Year / Rookie of the Year Standings for MPO and FPO in North America are displayed below. 

2021 Rookie eligibility: Current PDGA members who were never previously a Professional class member and had not registered as a Professional for the first time or accepted a cash award in a Professional division for the first time until after the 2020 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships.

Although the 2020 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, players who changed classification to Professional prior to August 1, 2020, were still considered Rookies for the 2020 season. Only players who changed classification to Professional after August 1, 2020, are considered Rookies for the 2021 season.

Standings are updated every Wednesday at noon Eastern. Players must be current PDGA members to be included in the standings.
