On the alternative Power Rankings, a world ranking maintained by PDC statistician Christopher Kempf, Smith even rises to sixth place. On this ranking, which compiles the performances of the past year, you get points depending, among other things, on how far you get in a tournament and also which higher-ranked players you beat. You also get many more points for a major than for a Euro Tour or Players Championship.
