How are the Joe’s Disc Golf Power Rankings determined? Unlike other disc golf power rankings, theses are based purely on math. There is no voting; no tweaking; no gut feelings; no manipulation.
To calculate the rankings, we look at the most recent eight Silver Series, Elite Series, and Majors. We do not factor in any other tournaments. The most recent three tournaments weigh the most overall in the calculations, while the last two weigh the least. Players who do not attend an event are assigned a certain number of points that substitute a finishing place. Rankings are updated after every DGPT/Major event.
For the third update in a row Catrina Allen sits atop the Joe’s Disc Golf FPO Power Rankings. She has had a very consistent game all year.
While Allen has continued to lead the field but, Paige Pierce is making a strong push to takeover the top spot. Pierce has been less consistent in the 2022 season but remains a strong player in the field.
Paige Pierce and Valerie Mandujano flipped positions. This is in large part because of her lack of performance at the Preserve Championship and OTB Open. Even with these two performances weighing her down. Valerie Mandujano has proven that she belongs in the top 5 FPO for the 2022 season.
For the second straight update, Missy Gannon remained in the 4th place spot. After shaking off a few early season jitters, Gannon has been a consistent top 10 finisher this year.
Moving up one spot and rounding out the top 5 is Ella Hansen. Finishing in second place at the Preserve Championship allowed her to jump Ohn Scoggins into the top 5. Over the last several tournaments Hansen has had inconsistent finishes. If she can find consistency, I’d expect her to jump up higher in the rankings.
