The season to date Order of Merit gives a good indication as to who is currently in form on the PDC tour and who is not. Gary Anderson currently leads with him picking up multiple titles this year.
This is contrasted with Raymond van Barneveld; who ahead of Hildesheim will likely head out of the top 64 on the season to date Order of Merit. There will be major doubts as to Barney’s Premier League place next year. The five time World Champion skips most of the tournaments and is not performing well enough.
Ian White for example if season to date is anything to go by is a lot more deserving with him the first player out of the top six not in the Premier League.
Other Premier League stars including Daryl Gurney and Simon Whitlock feature down in 13th and 14th. Adrian Lewis and James Wade are both just outside the top five like White also.
Of the new tour card holders unsurprisingly it’s Jeffrey de Zwaan who leads with the recent World Matchplay semi-finalist in tenth.

As we get into the business end of 2018, Ian White is the highest ranked non-Premier League player on the season-to-date Order of Merit. Raymond van Barneveld could be outside the top 64 after the next couple of weeks. pic.twitter.com/3TB40eJRkx
