The World Rankings are based on the ranking points earned by players over a rolling 12 event period. The World Rankings represent performances across a minimum of 1 event and a maximum of 12 events. The current system was first used for the 12 ranking events that made up the Order of Merit in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. Following the completion of the first world ranking event in the 2016-17 season, the UK Open 2016, any ranking points earned at that event will be added as before, however the points from the first ranking event in 2014- 15 (the UK Open 2014) will be removed. This pattern will continue so that after the second ranking event of 2016-17 season, any points from the second ranking event of the 2014-15 will be removed. The ranking points that a player will lose after the completion of the next ranking event are shown on the World Rankings page.
