PDC Order of Merit after World Matchplay: Van den Bergh storms into top 16 after claiming maiden major title

The World Matchplay has come to a close and as a result the PDC Order of Merit has been updated after a brilliant week of action in Milton Keynes.

Dimitri van den Bergh is of course the big winner after claiming the title at the World Matchplay. Due to winning £150,000 for the PDC Order of Merit, he earned a spot in the top 16. He moves up 14 places into 12th in the latest PDC Order of Merit.

Above him there have been some alterations. Michael Smith has surpassed Rob Cross to become England's no.1. James Wade has gone into World No.8 and Gary Anderson has gone down to the ninth position. This is due to his money dropping off after his defeat in the final and him defending a title win from two years ago.

Other risers include Glen Durrant (up 2), Danny Noppert (up 2) towards the top 20 at 22nd and Vincent van der Voort into the top 32 going up five spots to 28th.

Further up despite his run, Simon Whitlock is now out of the top 16 but Adrian Lewis is teetering on the edge despite Jonny Clayton being a long way off.
