WALMART FLW TOUR PRO OLLIVERSON WITHDRAWS FROM TOUR
MINNEAPOLIS (April 28, 2015) – Walmart FLW Tour pro Eric Olliverson of Lampe, Missouri, informed FLW of his decision to withdraw from the remaining three regular-season FLW Tour events in the 2015 season due to personal reasons. The FLW Tour tournament field will be trimmed to 153.
Olliverson joined the Tour in March after he was called up from a waiting list to replace Troy Gibson. Olliverson fished two events – a 105th-place finish at Lewis Smith Lake and a 68th-place showing last week at Beaver Lake.
In FLW Tour competition, anglers are also vying for valuable points in hopes of qualifying for the 2015 Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing. The 2015 Forrest Wood Cup will be in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Aug. 20-23 on Lake Ouachita and is hosted by Visit Hot Springs. The Forrest Wood Cup Champion could win as much as $500,000 – professional bass-fishing’s richest prize.
