Tucson, AZ, WPH Press, 9/5/17- The Race for the sixth WPH Outdoor Player’s Cup will conclude at the WPH/WOR 3WallBall Outdoor World Championships in Las Vegas, September 21-24, 2017. The 3WallBall Championships will feature three divisions for WPH Outdoor pros to earn valuable ranking points, as WPH Outdoor pros will count their three best divisions in Las Vegas towards the 2017 WPH Outdoor Cup Series rankings.
Juan Santos has won four of the five WPH Outdoor Player’s Cups for the WPH Outdoor Player of the Year since the inception of the tour in 2012, winning the Cup in 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2016. 2013 WPH Outdoor Player’s Cup Champion and current WPH Outdoor #1 Samzon Hernandez holds a sizeable Cup standings lead heading into September’s 3WallBall Championships but is anything but assured of his second Player’s Cup.
“With three events included in the Cup rankings in Vegas and 30 possible ranking points for a player that could win three, several players are mathematically alive to win the Cup next month,” stated WPH Outdoor rankings director Luis Cordova, Jr.
