Daryl Gurney has become the newest member of the top 16 in the PDC this week.

The Northern Irish number one has moved into the top 16 on the PDC Order of Merit for the first time in his career, overtaking Australia’s Simon Whitlock into 16th spot.

Gurney was just won win away from climbing into the top 16 on Sunday, losing 6-2 to Joe Cullen in the semi-finals of Players Championship 16, but has now pushed himself above Whitlock after the prize money from the 2015 European Darts Open fell off the two-year ranking list yesterday.

Elsewhere, Michael Smith has moved back into the top 10, at the expense of Jelle Klaasen, Ian White has leapfrogged Kim Huybrechts into 12th, and Benito van de Pas has climbed above 2015 European Darts Open champion Robert Thornton and up into 14th.
