Scroggins Continues His Winning Ways

by PBA Editor October 31, 2003 19:00
Mike Scroggins has been on one of the best runs of his career, and that streak continued Saturday afternoon in the PBA Pepsi Open at Spectrum Lanes, with Scroggins advancing to the round of 8. Scroggins, who has made the five-man finals each of the last two weeks, is looking for his second career PBA Tour title. His first came back in 1992 in Sacramento, Calif. “I’m bowling the best I ever have right now,” said Scroggins, who defeated Joe Ciccone four-games-to-two in the round of 16. “Last year I bowled well, but I didn’t have the luck I’m having this year in match play.” Scroggins will go on to face Pete Weber, who came back from an early 2-0 defecit to defeat Rick Lawrence, 4-3. Weber struck twice to close out Lawrence, 205-201, in the final game. Jason Couch cemented a finals appearance by beating Eric Forkel, 4-1. Couch gained entry into the finals because he is the highest remaining qualifier, finishing third in his first 18 games. Couch will go on to face Brad Angelo, who defeated Dennis Horan Jr., 4-2. Angelo ranks third in the PBA World Point Rankings, and with a title win, he would own the top spot. In other matches, Jeff Smith earned his first career round of 8 appearance with a 4-2 victory over Dave Arnold. He will face two-time PBA Tour champion Rick Steelsmith, who came back from a 2-0 hole against Ricky Ward to win, 4-2. Lonnie Waliczek also advanced by winning the last two games of his match against Chris Hayden to win, 4-3. Waliczek will try for his second finals appearance of the season, but will have to go through Steve Wilson, who held off a charging James Wallace, 4-2. The remaining bowlers will return tonight at 5 p.m. for the round of 8 match play. The top five bowlers will return Sunday, Nov. 2 for the finals televised live on ESPN from 1-2:30 p.m. ET.

Smith's Stunning at Pepsi Open

by PBA Editor October 31, 2003 19:00
Jeff Smith, the No. 32 seed in the PBA Pepsi Open, advanced to the championship round Saturday night at Spectrum Lanes, beating Rick Steelsmith four-games-to-one in the round of 8 match play. Smith, 40, took the first two games from Steelsmith, including a 246-224 win in the second game. After dropping the third game, Smith rebounded to win the next two and move on to his first career television finals appearance. “I think I’ll be nervous with the setting and the lights,” Smith said. “I’m an outgoing person though, and I’ll put on a good show. I’ve dreamed about doing this.” A part-time member on the PBA Tour since 1993, Smith had finished no better than 101st this season. In other matches, Mike Scroggins defeated Pete Weber, 4-1, to advance to his third consecutive championship round appearance. The last bowler to accomplish that feat was Walter Ray Williams Jr., who twice appeared on three straight shows last season. “You have to have some luck out there,” Scroggins said. “I just feel like I’ve been bowling well enough to win matches, but I’m getting lucky along the way.” Down 2-1, Jason Couch rebounded to top Brad Angelo, 4-2, and advance to his first finals appearance of the season. The 10-time PBA Tour title winner will face Scroggins in the semi-final match. Lonnie Waliczek, a two-time PBA Tour title winner, defeated Steve Wilson, 4-1, to advance to his second championship round of the season. Wilson, who was the highest qualifier that lost in the round of 8, advanced to the finals as the wildcard. Waliczek and Wilson will square off again in the wildcard match tomorrow. ESPN will televise the five-man finals live Sunday, from 1-2:30 p.m. ET. Top prize will be $40,000.

Teams Set For PBA Wild Turkey Bourbon Regional Players Invitational

by PBA Editor October 30, 2003 19:00
The Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) will hold its celebrated PBA Wild Turkey Bourbon Regional Players Invitational (RPI) at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev., December 2 – 4. The event is being presented by the Sands Regency Hotel and Casino. The RPI is the showcase event for the PBA’s regional program, bringing the top eight bowlers from each of the PBA’s seven regions together to compete for the championship and the $10,000 top prize. The 56 competitors will also be gunning for a berth into the PBA Tour’s most prestigious event, the PBA Dexter Tournament of Champions. In that event, the RPI winner competes against an elite field of PBA Tour champions for one of pro bowling’s most coveted titles. “Wild Turkey Bourbon has been a great sponsor of the regional program,” said PBA Vice President of Operations Mark Bisbing. “It is their first year entitling this event, but we have been fortunate enough to have this be our fifth consecutive year that the Sands and the National Bowling Stadium have hosted the event. It’s been a great partnership.” The first RPI was contested in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1969 with Tom Hennessey, St. Louis, emerging as the winner. The only player to have won two NRPC titles is Darryl Bower, Middletown, Pa., who captured the 1983 and 1985 events. The RPI has also seen brothers win the title. David Traber won the event in 1986 and his brother Dale was victorious in 1994. This year’s field features five past RPI champions (Jeff Richgels - 1993, Dale Traber - 1994, Ray Edwards – 1995, Ted Hannahs - 1996, Bob Davidson – 2000). Schedule of Events Tuesday, December 2 Practice session - 8 – 10 a.m. Nine games of qualifying - 11 a.m. Wednesday, December 3 Nine games of qualifying - 8 a.m. (Cut to the top 16 players for match-play bracket) Thursday, December 4 Round of 16 - 8 a.m. Quarterfinals (immediately following Rd. of 16) Semifinals - 2 p.m. Championship Match (following semifinals) (all rounds of match will be the best three out of five games) Teams Stats as of October 31, 2003 PBA Wild Turkey Bourbon Central Region Richie Brown Hometown – Marion, Ohio How Qualified - Point list Years Qualified For RPI – 8 Best RPI Finish – 26th Best Regional Finish in 2003 – 3rd Regional Titles – 3 Eddie Graham Hometown – Centerville, Ohio How Qualified - Alternate from point list Years Qualified For RPI – 1 Best RPI Finish – NA Best Regional Finish in 2003 – 5th-8th Regional Titles – 1 Ted Hannahs Hometown – Zanesville, Ohio How Qualified - Point list Years Qualified For RPI – 15 Best RPI Finish – 1st (1996) Best Regional Finish in 2003 – 1st (Fort Wayne, Ind.)

Delutz Lands Top Seed

by PBA Editor October 30, 2003 19:00
Tommy Delutz Jr. will enter the round of 32 match play as the top seed after he finished qualifying in 8th place with a 3,889, 18-game pinfall Friday afternoon in the PBA Pepsi Open at Spectrum Lanes. This season, bowlers are seeded based on point totals from the last 20 tournaments. Delutz, with 252,420 points, is the highest remaining bowler on that list. Top point-getter Walter Ray Williams Jr. (358,550) finished 75th in this week’s qualifying. “I’ve been bowling well and the lanes have been very challenging, in addition to the approaches,” Delutz said. “The heat in here makes it seem like you’re bowling with Velcro under your shoes. It’s not as easy as it looks.” Delutz, a two-time PBA Tour title winner, becomes the second bowler this season to enjoy the No. 1 seed after Williams landed the top seed in the first three tournaments. Chris Barnes, with 258,184 on the rolling points list, had a chance to take the top seed in match play, but finished qualifying 47th with 3,694. PBA Hall-of-Famer Amleto Monacelli used a 222 in his final game to overtake Steve Hoskins for the top spot in qualifying with 4,011. Hoskins was second with 4,009 while Jason Couch finished third with 3,984. “I’ve been bowling really well lately,” Monacelli said. “Physically, I’m good and I’m using the right ball at the right time.” Three-year pro Blaise Bedolla was 32nd with 3,755, and will be the No. 20 seed for match play. Mike Scroggins, who has made the championship round the past two weeks, moved up from 52nd to 6th place, finishing with 3,905. Scroggins faces Del Ballard Jr. in the round of 32. Match play begins tonight and continues through Sunday. ESPN will televise the five-man finals live Sunday, Nov. 2, from 1-2:30 p.m. ET. Top prize will be $40,000.
