Movers & Shakers: Minor’s, Women’s Updates


We gave the pros their due the last couple weeks, but after a weekend with two Minor events and a Women’s event, it’s time to show some love to them.


It’s pretty much steady as she goes in the top 10, though Kevin Lasyone is now in the 10th spot, as Bill Chapman slipped to 11th after the FLW EverStart on the Potomac River.

The same could be said for the top 20, where only Trevor Romans was able to move himself up a spot to 16th after the BASS Open at Fort Gibson.

Then there is Josh Bertrand. His 17th at Fort Gibson catapulted him 20 places up to 28th. At the same time, Fort Gibson wasn’t as kind to Mark Tucker, who slipped 10 places to 39th.

Rounding out the top 50, there is some shuffling around the 40th spot, with Tom Belinda dropping from 40th to 49th and everyone else in the 40s moving up a spot after Greg Ryan dropped off the ranking completely.


Cheryl Bowden must love the fall. Prior to her winning this weekend’s LBAA at Neely Henry, the last time she made a top five was last fall, when she finished third and second in consecutive tournaments.

Her first win bumped her up to seventh, but it couldn’t overtake the debut of Lisa Johnson in sixth.

While Bowden likes the fall, Pam Martin-Wells likes every month. Her second place over the weekend only added to her lead in the top spot.
