Citrus Slam — Kissimmee Chain of Lakes
Kevin VanDam: This tournament had to be one of the most impressive tournament victories of his career. Florida had not been his friend up to this point. He not only killed a demon with this victory, but he salvaged what could have been a real tough start to 2008.
Scott Rook: He only needed 12 pounds to win, which would have been his lowest total of the week, and he came in with nine. It wouldn't have shifted him much in the AOY rankings, but it might have given him the momentum he needed to go on a run.
