Gary Anderson has regained his position as world number four following the Austrian Darts Championship (ET10), despite not playing in Vienna.
Anderson's move up to fifth sees Michael Smith fall back down to fifth following his second round loss to Cameron Menzies at the Austrian European Tour event.
Dutch duo Jermaine Wattimena and Jeffrey de Zwaan are the only other top 32 players to improve their standing on the main Order of Merit.
Meanwhile, the top 32 players on the European Tour Order of Merit as of September 29 will qualify for October's Unibet European Championship.
German number one Max Hopp currently occupies the final spot, while Raymond van Barneveld, Michael Smith and Kyle Anderson are among the chasing pack.
The PDC Order of Merit and European Tour Order of Merit will be open to change again this weekend at the European Darts Matchplay in Mannheim, Germany, with all the action shown on video.pdc.tv from Friday to Sunday.
