Disc Golf Pro Tour MPO and FPO 2022 TOP 10 Rankings


Disc Golf Pro Tour TOP 10 rankings

About one-third of the 2022 Disc Golf Pro Tour season is in the books as we enter May, and it seems like a good time to take stock of what has happened thus far, and try to figure out who the top 10 MPO and FPO players have been so far this season.

The DGPT points standings don’t tell everything. Several players have played a partial schedule and produced strong results, and got a “bump” up my rankings as a result.

Disc Golf Pro Tour 2022 MPO TOP 10 additional information:

Matt Orum (10)

Though he's only played sparingly so far in 2022, he's playing at a high level when he does show up, with three top-six efforts in his last three tournaments. He ranks third in scrambling (66%), seventh in parked rate (13%) and eighth in Circle 1X putting (87%).
Drew Gibson (9)

He skipped a five-tournament stretch before returning for the Champions Cup. He ranks tied for fourth in birdie rate (45%) and fifth in parked rate (14%).
Joel Freeman (8)

He's been pretty steady, placing in the top eight in four of his six DGPT events. He ranks sixth in fairways hit (75%).
James Conrad (7)

The reigning world champion ranks tied for eighth in birdie rate (42%), seventh in Circle 1 in regulation (44%), ninth in Circle 2 in regulation (66%) and 10th in parked rate (13%).
Nikko Locastro (6)

He has finished in the top 15 in each of his DGPT appearances, which is why I have him ahead of a couple others who are actually ahead of him in the points standings. He ranks fourth in Circle 2 in regulation (69%), seventh in fairways hit (75%), tied for eighth in birdie percentage (42%) and 10th in Circle 1 in regulation (44%).
Gannon Buhr (5)

The teenager has placed in the top seven in five of his eight events. He ranks fifth in scrambling (65%) and ninth in Circle 2 putting (31%).
Paul McBeth (4)

A 51st-place finish in last weekend's Dynamic Discs Open sabotaged his average finish, which had been 3.25 entering the tournament. He ranks third in Circle 1X putting (88%) and tied for fourth in birdie rate (45%).
Calvin Heimburg (3)

Heimburg ranks first in Circle 1 in regulation (48%), second in Circle 2 in regulation (71%), third in birdie rate (46%) and fourth in fairways hit (77%).
Ricky Wysocki (2)

The 2021 DGPT and PDGA player of the year ranks first in parked rate (16%), second in birdie rate (47%) and Circle 1 in regulation (48%), sixth in Circle 2 in regulation (68%) and scrambling (65%), and seventh in Circle 1X putting (87%).
Chris Dickerson (1)

The race between Dickerson and Wysocki for the top spot is razor close, but I give Dickerson the nod primarily by virtue of his major victory. Statistically, he ranks first in Circle 2 in regulation (72%), second in fairways hit (80%), third in Circle 1 in regulation (48%), tied for fourth in birdie rate (45%) and ninth in parked rate (13%).

Female Professional Open TOP 10 Rankings

(Note: From the seventh spot on, this got pretty tricky — definitely trickier than the MPO rankings. A number of players have played top-10 quality disc golf but haven’t played as many events as those ahead of them in the standings. How you weigh quality vs. quantity will make a significant difference in how you’d rank them. I generally valued quality over quantity. Also, a handful of players are not signed up for the next several DGPT events, so these rankings could get a big shakeup in the next couple months.)

Disc Golf Pro Tour 2022 FPO TOP 10 additional information:

Henna Blomroos (10)

She placed fourth, sixth and seventh in her last three DGPT events, but has gone back to Europe for the time being. She ranks sixth in fairways hit (73%), parked rate (13%) and Circle 1 in regulation (38%).
Macie Veladiaz (9)

Three of her four DGPT events resulted in top-eight finishes, including third in the Music City Open Silver Series event.
Ohn Scoggins (8)

She keeps aging like fine wine (though she hasn’t played the full schedule), placing in the top seven in each of her last four DGPT/major events. The short-game wizard leads the tour in scrambling (57%), Circle 1X putting (80%) and Circle 2 putting (25%).
Kat Mertsch (7)

She has finishes of second, third and fourth on her ledger this year, and ranks fifth in Circle 1 in regulation (38%), sixth in birdie rate (28%), seventh in Circle 2 in regulation (57%), eighth in fairway hits (72%) and 10th in parked rate (10%).
Hailey King (6)

Just like Drew Gibson on the MPO side, King missed five straight events before returning for the Champions Cup. She has finishes of fourth, sixth and 10th in her three DGPT events. She ranks fifth in birdie rate (29%), sixth in Circle 1X putting (75%) and 10th in Circle 2 in regulation (57%).
Missy Gannon (5)

It’s been a mild roller-coaster ride for Gannon, who has finishes of first, second and fifth, but also two finishes outside the top 10. She ranks fifth in Circle 1X putting (75%) and seventh in scrambling (48%).
Valerie Mandujano (4)

The breakthrough player of the year so far, she has placed in the top seven in each of her DGPT/major events, including her first DGPT victory and a pair of runner-up finishes. She ranks second in scrambling (57%), eighth in birdie rate (27%) and ninth in Circle 2 in regulation (57%).
Paige Pierce (3)

Here’s what we call a rankings issue. Pierce has been a little less consistent than her main two rivals, with two finishes outside the top five (sixth and seventh), but has won the lone major so far this year. She leads in birdie percentage (36%), is third in Circle 2 in regulation (62%), is fourth in parked rate (15%) and Circle 2 putting (21%), is fifth in fairways hit (73%), is seventh in Circle 1 in regulation (37%), is eighth in Circle 1X putting (73%) and is ninth in scrambling (47%). Overall, I think this is where she belongs — though I can certainly understand those who disagree.
Catrina Allen (2)

She has placed in the top five in each of her DGPT/major events this season. She ranks second in Circle 2 putting (24%), is third in birdie percentage (32%), parked rate (15%) and Circle 1 in regulation (40%), is fourth in fairway hits (74%) and Circle 2 in regulation (61%), and is fifth in scrambling (51%).
Kristin Tattar (1)

Tattar has finished in the top three in each of her seven DGPT/major events this season, including wins in her last two outings. She ranks second in birdie rate (34%), parked rate (15%), Circle 1 in regulation (42%) and Circle 2 in regulation (64%), and is eighth in scrambling (47%) and Circle 2 putting (17%).
