Mid-year update to Player of the Year rankings

Yesterday’s ratings and points update, and the Pro Worlds results, caused quite a few top 5 changes:
Finland’s Juho Parviainen moved up to third place, while Teemu Nissinen dropped a few spots to fifth, showing the Finnish domincance, with five out of six spots being taken by Finns; Denmark’s KJ Nybo being the odd one out.
Simon Lizotte’s injury may make a three-peat of winning PDGA Europe Player of the Year very hard for the German; he’s now dropped to 6th position.

In the women’s ranking, Eveliina Salonen’s upward march now sees her move past fellow Finns Anne Kettunen and Henna Blomroos, making for an all-Finnish podium.
Despite a very strong 5th place at Pro Worlds, Slovakia’s Katka Boboda dropped from fourth to fifth.

Sweden’s Ragna Bygde Lewis’ chances of winning will mostly depend on her competing at the European Disc Golf Championships in Oulu next week.
In case she does, she will meet the requirement of playing three+ events in Europe, and immediately appear high up the rankings, due to her rating and points total.
