Movers & Shakers: Shuffling in Majors Top 10


What can one tournament do? A lot.

It’s been a couple weeks since the last Major event. Yet, the Majors World Ranking is still shifting due to tournaments from two years ago dropping off. This week it was an FLW Tour event on Lake Ouachita, and it caused a reshuffling of a good portion of the top 10.

The top three remain the same, but at No. 4 we now find Andy Morgan, followed by Ott Defoe. Meanwhile, Cody Meyer (formerly fourth) now sits in eighth, while Jay Yelas and Mark Rose switched places at ninth and 10th, respectively.

Though, one of them might be vacating the top 10 soon, as Randall Tharp continues to inch his way toward the illustrious club as he jumps three spots to 12th. At the same time, Brent Ehrler, who won the Ouachita event, falls some more to 13th.

While pros shuffled throughout the top 20, Jim Moynagh quietly has made a charge of his own, jumping from 35th to 24th in this latest update.

At the same time, losing his sixth at Ouachita slipped Jacob Powroznik from 22nd to 33rd. Stetson Blaylock has a similar fall from 24th to 34th.

Some other notable moves in the top 50, both good and bad, include Cody Bird (58th to 42nd), Justin Lucas (59th to 44th), Jim Tutt (74th to 49th) and Terry Bolton (38th to 52nd).
