Scott Mitchell has moved up to third in the BDO Men’s Rolling Rankings after his win in the Denmark Open at the weekend.
The 2015 BDO world champion defeated Belgium’s Andy Baetens 6-1 in the final on Saturday to win his second ranking event of 2017.
Mitchell, who was in fourth before the latest update, climbs above Jamie Hughes into third in the rankings, while Ross Montgomery has moved up two spaces from eighth to sixth.
The Scot enjoyed runs to the semi-finals of both the Denmark Open and Masters at the weekend, results which have helped him continue his recent rise up the BDO rankings.
Elsewhere, Geert de Vos and Darryl Fitton have both climbed up two spaces to seventh and eighth respectively, while Darius Labanauskas has slipped from sixth to 12th.
The Lithuanian won the Denmark Open last year, and also reached the quarter-finals of the Denmark Masters 12 months ago, but his best run this time round was to the last 16 of the Masters.
This weekend’s events include the Cleveland Extravaganza, as well as the Finnish Open and Finnish Masters, while the scheduled Floreal Open and Floreal Masters were both recently cancelled.
