More Points In Panama

Doug Ferguson points out another wacky world ranking thingy in this week's notes column:

In the PGA Tour's attempt to validate the Nationwide Tour as something more than a minor league, consider the disbursement of world ranking points Sunday. Miguel Carballo won the Nationwide event in Panama and received more ranking points than Andrew Buckle received for his tie for fourth at the Buick Invitational.

I'd try to figure this out, but I lost interest in the world ranking years ago.
