PDC

The Professional Darts Corporation or PDC is a darts organisation that was founded by 16 professional players during the early 90's. Due to an argument with the BDO (British Darts Organisation), the former BDO champions Jocky Wilson, Phil Taylor, John Low, Eric Bristow and Bob Anderson formed this new organisation.

The PDC rankings are based on two full years. Points gathered in year '1' will be replaced with points from year '3'. This way, players who dont do well in a certain year won't fall back completely and can still play the higher ranked tournaments. It also means that lower ranked players need to perform consistently to gain a higher ranking. The ranking is based on the financial revenues over two years has been called “Order of Merit” since the World Darts Championship of 2007.
