Jonny Clayton has climbed to a career-high seventh in the PDC Order of Merit after his memorable triumph at the World Grand Prix.

Clayton, who won the Masters and Premier League titles earlier this year, secured his first PDC major ranking title at the double-start event in Leicester with an emphatic 5-1 victory over Gerwyn Price in the final.

The £110,000 top prize sees Welsh star Clayton surge seven places to seventh in the updated PDC Order of Merit, having started the year ranked outside the world’s top 16.

Price, who fell short of retaining the Grand Prix crown, remains the runaway leader at the top of the rankings ahead of Peter Wright – who is defending £500,000 in prize money at Ally Pally this year.

Michael van Gerwen remains world number three despite a shock First Round exit to Danny Noppert in Leicester last week, with Noppert rising to 22nd after his run to the Semi-Finals.

Dave Chisnall, who finished runner-up in the 2019 World Grand Prix, has dropped two places to tenth after a Quarter-Final defeat to Price, while Daryl Gurney is back into the world’s top 16 despite a First Round exit at the hands of Stephen Bunting.

Bunting, who enjoyed a fine run to the Semi-Finals, climbs one place to 15th, while Dirk van Duijvenbode is up two spots to 19th despite suffering another First Round exit.

Luke Humphries, the man responsible for knocking out Van Duijvenbode in Leicester, continues his rapid rise, climbing three places to a career-high 23rd.

Ryan Searle, who reached the Quarter-Finals, is also up three places to 27th, with Ross Smith climbing three places to 35th.

Meanwhile, Glen Durrant’s rapid descent continues as he drops five places to 20th following a First Round exit to Jose De Sousa with an average of just 58.

Chris Dobey reached the Semi-Finals in Dublin two years ago, but his failure to qualify this time around has seen him spiral seven places to 30th.

Martijn Kleermaker, who was beaten in Round One by Mervyn King on his Grand Prix debut, climbs six places to 50th, while Lithuania’s Darius Labanauskas moves up two places to 38th after reaching the Last 16.
