Despite the poor predictions of the Joe’s Disc Golf Podcast host, Paul McBeth remains atop the Joe’s Disc Golf Power Rankings for the second straight update. Though he wasn’t able to crackthe top five at the Discraft Great Lakes Open, his 7th place finish just kept him in the number one spot.
Paul McBeth is able to hold that number one spot. He did not have the typical McBeth round at Discraft Great Lakes Open (DGLO) but he was able to finish in a solid seventh place.
Adam Hammes jumped up five spots to take the number two spot on our power ranking. He had a great showing at DGLO with a fourth place finish. His game looked good and we’ll see if he can carry this momentum in to the back half of the season.
Moving up one spot in to third place is Gannon Buhr. His twelfth place finish was enough for him to jump up one spot.
Moving down two spots after a rollercoaster tournament is Simon Lizotte. There were moments where he looked like he might sneak a podium from the chase card on Sunday but it wasn’t meant to be.
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.
