The first major is in the books. The land down under provided a tough challenge and the tournament came right down to the end. When it was all said and done, Paul Mcbeth was atop the podium once again. Here is the first release of the 2015 Power Rankings. Rankings based on performance in January.
1. Paul McBeth – He started the year ranked #1 in our Power Rankings. After his performance in Australia, he will stay there. McBeast has the first major under his belt already!
2. Ricky Wysocki – We will leave Wysocki right at #2, where he started after a 3rd place finish in Australia.
3. Nate Doss – We bump Doss up to #3 after a great performance in Australia. he was #4 to start.
4. Will Schusterick – We move Schusterick down one spot only because other players competed and finished well in a major.
5. Simon Lizotte – We bump Dave Feldberg out of our top 5 and move Simon Lizotte into the 5 position. A second place finish with a near come from behind win, paired with Feldberg’s struggles place Lizotte at #5.
1. Valerie (Jenkins) Doss – Val claims the first major of the year and bumps up to #1 on our Power Rankings. She leaps over the idle Paige Pierce and Catrina Allen.
2. Paige Pierce – Pierce didn’t really compete in January, and this moved her below Valerie Doss.
