State Farm-BassFan World Rankings Update


Before getting into notable movement vs. the last edition, a few notes:

> Second-year FLW Tour pros now show up in the rankings. Arizona's Andre Moore debuts the highest, at 20th. This influx of "new" pros also causes some shifts in the rankings.

> For the last few editions of the rankings, year 1 results (the 52 weeks of tournament finishes prior to the most recent 52 weeks) were being undercounted. That mistake is now corrected and also causes some movement -- up for some, down for others. Notable among these are Roger Boler, whose relatively poor year last year drags him down a little in the rankings.

Notable Movement

> Thanks in part to a 10th-place finish at the Kentucky Lake FLW, the No. 1 angler in the world -- Kevin VanDam -- widens his points lead. Alton Jones (2nd in the world) didn't fish the FLW event and Jay Yelas (3rd) finished low (119th).

> Mike Wurm moves back into 7th.

> Tommy Biffle falls out of the Top 10 and is now 12th.

> Clark Wendlandt and David Dudley move up to 13th and 14th, respectively. Tim Horton is in 16th.
