Luke Humphries has climbed in to the world’s top four for the first time following his historic World Grand Prix triumph.

Humphries secured his first televised title in Leicester last weekend to become the latest new winner of a ranked PDC major, defeating Gerwyn Price 5-2 in the final.

The 28-year-old had already racked up nine PDC ranking titles, including five European Tours, and fell narrowly short in his first major final at the 2021 UK Open.

However, his fairy-tale triumph at the World Grand Prix – which was sealed with a stunning 138 checkout – secured him a £120,000 top prize and a place in the elite top four, leapfrogging Price and World Matchplay champion Nathan Aspinall in the process.

Humphries, who now looks poised for a debut appearance in next year’s Premier League, holds a £12,750 advantage over Price heading in to this weekend’s German Darts Championship.

Meanwhile, Rob Cross has moved above Jonny Clayton into seventh spot despite his First Round exit in Leicester, with Clayton also bowing out in Round One when defending his title-winning prize money from 2021.

Joe Cullen’s run to a second successive major Semi-Final has seen him climb two places to tenth, moving above Dirk van Duijvenbode and Dave Chisnall – a three-time Euro Tour event winner this year.

The remainder of the top 16 remains unchanged, though Ross Smith has narrowed the gap to just £9,000 on James Wade in 16th spot.

UK Open champion Andrew Gilding has risen a further three places to 20th and is set to improve that standing in the coming months, with a mere £2,000 to defend on his ranking.

Gabriel Clemens has dropped two places to 22nd, while his German compatriot Martin Schindler climbs to 24th after reaching the Quarter-Finals of the Grand Prix.

Raymond van Barneveld climbs one place to 30th after making his first World Grand Prix appearance since 2018, though he was beaten 2-1 by Schindler in the opening round.

Belgium’s Mike De Decker is up two places to 37th after making his debut at the World Grand Prix, while Luke Woodhouse’s debut run to the Last 16 sees him climb four places to 40th.

Ian White’s failure to qualify for the World Grand Prix means he drops eight places to 54th and faces a battle to save his Tour Card over the coming months.

Darius Labanauskas is also facing a fight to stay on the tour, having dropped three places to 64th, while Mervyn King and Vincent van der Voort fall three places to 35th and 39th respectively after also failing to make this year’s World Grand Prix.
