The top three players in the second edition of the U.S. Pro Series—Campbell Grayson, Ryan Cuskelly, and Todd Harrity—will be recognized on-court Friday night in a special presentation during the 2015 Tournament of Champions in Grand Central Terminal, New York City.

The presentation will occur following Harrity’s first round match against world No. 1 Mohamed Elshorbagy at 6:00pm.

The 2014 edition of the U.S. Pro Series boasted total prize money of $260,000 spread across nineteen tournaments around the country.

Rankings points were calculated based on tournament finishing positions to determine the champions.

After finishing second in the inaugural U.S. Pro Series, New York City-based New Zealander Campbell Grayson collects the top prize of $5,000. The twenty-eight-year-old world No. 51 played in seven U.S. Pro Series events, reaching three finals and winning the $10,000 Life Time Las Vegas Open in May.

Grayson’s Chicago Open final opponent, Ryan Cuskelly, finished second to win $3,000. The Greenwich, Connecticut-based Australian competed in eight U.S. Pro Series events including winning the $10,000 Life Time Phoenix Open in September, and $10,000 Life Time Chicago Open in October.

After a breakthrough year that saw the Princeton graduate reach world No. 68, Harrity takes home the third-place prize of $2,000. The Wayne, Pennsylvania-Native competed in eleven U.S. Pro Series tournaments, including his first two professional titles—the $5,000 Squash Revolution NY Pro Open in March, and $10,000 Madison Open in October.

In 2013, the inaugural U.S. Pro Series was created in partnership between US Squash and the Professional Squash Association (PSA) thanks to the burgeoning number of PSA tournaments hosted in the United States. Nine-time U.S. Champion Julian Illingworth was the inaugural U.S. Pro Series champion.
