Assuming he's going to hold on and win, Brandon Palaniuk will become the 13th angler to go wire-to-wire in winning an Elite Series event. You don't need much of a memory to recall the last to do it. It was Ish Monroe on Lake Okeechobee just a few weeks ago.
Professional bass fishing at the highest level is not a sport of comebacks. Again, assuming Palaniuk holds on here, the Day One leader goes on to win 28.33 percent of the time; the Day Two leader goes on to win nearly half the time, and the Day Three leader wins 65 percent of the time.
