FLW is renewing its tradition this weekend. You know, the one where they head to the Ozarks.
Aside from last year (when the tournament was canceled due to high water), the FLW Tour has almost always headed to Beaver Lake or Table Rock Lake in the spring.
This year is no different, with the only new twist being the timing. Instead of going in February or May, The FLW Tour is splitting the difference and going to Table Rock at the end of March.
No matter. We have plenty of data to go around. So let’s start crunching.
Brent Ehrler had an FLW Tour win drop from his ranking last week. He did a pretty good job of replacing it over the weekend.
Throughout the FLW Tour event on Lake Hartwell, Ehrler kept saying he was conserving his fish and didn’t want to be in the lead until after the final weigh-in. Looks like he wasn’t kidding, as the pro won his fourth FLW Tour event, effectively replacing his FLW Tour win at Table Rock from 2010 in the process.
So how much did the weekend victory help him in the Majors World Ranking? Well, he still hasn’t regained his spot at No. 1, but he’s back in the top five..
