Recent tournaments have sent waves through the FPO disc golf power rankings, leading to new faces in top spots and reshuffling among established stars. From the Europeans making their mark to rising talents shaking up the leaderboard, the latest rankings offer a snapshot of a sport in flux.
Top 5 Power Rankings: Stability and Surprises
Kristin Tattar continues her reign at #1, even after a slight hiccup at the MVP Open that saw her tying for 2nd place. However, she remains dominant after another strong season, including a Major and a season Grand Slam at USWDGC this past weekend.
Eveliina Salonen rockets up nine spots to #2 after an impressive showing at the MVP Open. Once known for putting woes, Salonen appears to be turning a corner. If she can maintain her momentum, her formidable distance game will make her a serious contender in any event.
Holding steady at #3 is Ohn Scoggins, whose consistency was on full display at the recent Vermont tournament. While she may not have the raw power of some of her competitors, Scoggins proves time and again that accuracy and consistency are invaluable in disc golf.
Missy Gannon drops three slots to land at #5 after a poor performance at the MVP Open. Despite this setback, her undeniable talent keeps her in contention, and she’ll aim for redemption at the upcoming USWDGC.
Notable Moves and New Entries in the Top 12 and Beyond
Lower down the rankings, there are several noteworthy movements. Macie Velediaz and Cadence Burge make their marks, entering the top 12 at #11 and #12, respectively. On the flip side, both Heidi Laine and Sarah Hokom have slid down to #14 and #16 after disappointing finishes in recent tournaments.
Tournament Impact: MVP Open Shakes Up the Field
The MVP Open proved to be a critical event in shaping the current rankings. Hailey King emerged victorious, edging out Kristin Tattar and Ohn Scoggins, who tied for 2nd. Eveliina Salonen’s 4th-place finish shot her up to the #2 spot, and Holly Finley’s 5th-place performance helped her crack the top 25 at #23.
