The PDC Rankings
There are actually a couple of ways players are ranked within the PDC – which effect player qualifications to different tournaments and events.
- PDC Order of Merit – this is the full list of all players, and the position in the world, based on 2 year rolling prize money
- Pro Tour order of Merit – this is the rankings based on prize money won in the player championships, UK Open qualifiers (as of 2012), and the European Tour floor tournaments only. It does not include the big TV tournaments.
