According to the PDGA Player Statistics, in 2021 season, there were a total of 440 players with a rating of 1000 and over. This number includes 370 MPO players and 70 players from MP40, MP50, MA1 and Junior divisions. The highest rated player in 2021 was Ricky Wysocki at 1054 PDGA rating points, followed by Eagle McMahon (1053) and Paul McBeth (1050). Highest rated FPO player was Paige Pierce (981) followed by Kristin Tattar (976).
Sadly, no FPO player has ever reached the 1000 PDGA rating milestone, at least not yet.
In comparison, in 2020, there were a total of 417 players with a rating of 1000+.
Here’s a detailed chart of MPO players rated 1000+ as of 8th December 2020.
