In fact, we’ll help you do it.
Hackney’s win over the weekend at the Elite Series event at Cayuga was his second of the season (one on each circuit) and sixth top 10 of 2014 (most of any angler). Yet, despite those numbers he’s No. 11 in the one-year ranking. Why? His 138th-place finish at the FLW Tour Kentucky Lake event in June is the biggest culprit. Without that event, Hackney’s one-year average jumps from 751.856 to 798.223. That would be good enough for No. 4, and that average still includes a 96th at the FLW Tour Beaver Lake event.
Now that that is out there, where does Hackney rank in our two-year Majors Ranking? He’s back inside the top 40, sitting in 39th.
Otherwise, there weren’t too many big moves in the top 50, with the more noteworthy news being Kevin VanDam being in danger of falling outside the top 20. He currently sits in 17th.
