Added Lists (Nostalgia) – Pre-Waco

As well as Post-Memorial

Congratulations on finding this semi-hidden page. This area is for paid subscribers, as are extended rankings, outside the top 10 for MPO and top 7 for FPO. Since we are recently launched, you may enjoy these lists freely, for at least a little while. These added lists will arrive weekly, and are meant to entertain and inform. Enjoy!

The Best in FPO Have Only Gotten Better

If this list was instead a minimum of 3 to qualify, Kristin Tattar would sit comfortably on top, nearly 2 places ahead of Paige and Cat (who are virtually tied). UDisc has Tattar ranked #1, and it’s hard to argue against that going into Waco Open.

Top 7 in FPO all have it within them to take 1st place in any tournament coming up this year. The field is getting much stronger, with more parity. The top 25 for FPO going into 2022 is one of the more interesting sports stories, perhaps of the decade.

How Good was Ricky in 2021?

Of the top 10 MPO last year, Ricky was the only one to not play in a strictly A tier event. He played in 1 B-tier, 3 Silver Series, and the rest Elite or Major tournaments. He had by far the best records among the top 10, even excluding the B tier event. Most wins (6), best average finish for Elite Series (4th place, and 2 better than McBeth), plus the most top 5 finishes (17).

  • While Kona is the 2021 defending champion, she is still 2nd tier when compared to likes of Hokom and Cat.
  • This list combined with player rankings ought to help make fantasy picks for Waco, more informed. At least that’s AF’s intention.
