Ricky Wysocki #38008 and Catrina Allen #44184 continue to securely hold the top point totals for Male and Female Player of the Year, respectively. Paul McBeth #27523 and Paige Pierce #29190 each trail by around 100 points which will be tough to make up with the number of events remaining. But the races are not over yet since the points total is just one of the elements used for bonus points in the final calculation among the top point earners.
The current 2012 PDGA Player of the Year/Rookie of the Year calculations for Men and Women in North America are displayed below.
The calculations are based on the tournament data available through the September 2012 Ratings Update including all bonus points except for the 2012 calendar year player rating bonus points. Players must be current PDGA members to be included in the calculations.
Those players highlighted in green are eligible for 2012 Rookie of the Year.
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
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?
