Korea’s Park Wins 28th Round1 Japan Cup

by Bill Vint November 15, 2014 02:47

TOKYO, Japan – Korea’s Kyung Shin Park became his country’s first Round1 Japan Cup winner Saturday when he defeated Japan’s Akio Ishihara, 241-203, in the 28th edition of the international tournament.

Park, who ended Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr.’s bid for history in the Round of 8 at Minami Suna Round1, earned $51,700 along with his title. Park also eliminated Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio, in the semifinal round, 244-166, ending the PBA’s last hope for a title for the second straight year.

In the other semifinal match, Ishihara defeated Korea’s Young Kwan Kim, 226-225, to prevent an all- Korea title match.

Williams, 55, entered the championship round seeking his third Japan Cup title, a record 48th PBA Tour title, and his first PBA Tour title since 2010. But Park’s 278 made easy work of the Oxford, Florida, superstar.

PBA Rookie of the Year contender Marshall Kent of Yakima, Washington, and past Japan Cup titlist Mika Koivuniemi of Finland also were eliminated in the Round of 8. Ishihara ended Kent’s hopes for his first PBA title, 216-203, and Kim knocked Koivuniemi out of the finals, 247-226.

PBA Tour players now travel to South Korea and the Middle East to complete the 2014 season with three PBA International-World Bowling Tour events: the It’s Daejeon International Open in Daejeon, South Korean, today-Nov. 22; the Qatar Open in Doha, Qatar, Nov. 22-27, and the 8th Kingdom International Open in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Nov. 28-Dec. 2.

PBA Spare Shots: Harry Sullins Becoming a ‘Legend’ in PBA50 Regional Competition

by Bill Vint November 14, 2014 06:27

Five-time PBA Tour and three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins, who also goes by the moniker “The Legend,” isn’t letting the grass grow under his feet.

On Sunday, Sullins defeated Tim Kauble of Marion, Ohio, 218-188, to win the PBA50 Victory Lanes Midwest/Central Open in Kankakee, Ill., for his sixth PBA50 Regional title of the year and a $1,600 payday.

When not competing full time on the PBA50 Tour, the Chesterfield Twp., Mich., resident is a weekend warrior who fills his schedule with regular and PBA50 Regional tournaments. During his years as a PBA Tour regular, Sullins competed in 403 national tour stops, but since becoming eligible for PBA50 competition in 2007, he has experienced a resurgence in his professional career, especially at the regional level where is his trying to build another “legendary” resumé.

Since Sullins drives to all of his tournaments he estimates that he has driven nearly 35,000 miles this year alone while bowling in a total of 27 PBA events, including the full PBA50 Tour schedule, PBA and PBA50 Regionals plus the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VI in Las Vegas.

“With all the equipment I have, it’s just easier to put it all in the car than have to deal with the airlines,” he said.

At the regional level, he has bowled in 14 PBA50 events this year (plus two standard regionals against “the kids”).

“I still want to win every tournament I bowl in,” said the 57-year-old Sullins, who won the PBA50 World Championship during the first PBA World Series of Bowling in 2009. “My goal is to get to 20 PBA50 regional titles before anyone else and see how far I can take it after that."

Sullins, who plans to bowl one more PBA50 Regional in December, now has 17 PBA50 Regional titles including his win in Kankakee, Ill., on Sunday, Nov. 9. He also has won 12 regular PBA Regional titles.

BARNES, GUERRERO WIN BOWLING WORLD CUP TITLES

PBA champions Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, and Clara Guerrero, a Colombia native now living in Pflugerville, Texas, won the men’s and women’s titles in the 50th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup Saturday at Sky Bowling Center in Wroclaw, Poland.

Entering the finals as the No. 3 qualifier, Barnes won his best-of-three-game semifinal match against Ukraine's Mykhaylo Kalika, 215-204, 300-219 and then swept top qualifier Tobias Bording of Germany, 269-248, 231-216 for the title.

In the women’s title match, Guerrero defeated Malaysia's Li Jane Sing, 2-1. Guerrero won the first game, 239-234, lost the second, 257-243, and won the deciding game, 265-211. Team USA’s Brittni Hamilton finished third.

Barnes, who bowled in the World Cup as a member of Team USA, joined wife Lynda Barnes as the first husband-wife duo to win World Cup titles. Lynda won in 2005.

PBA REGIONAL SUMMARY: LeCLAIR AND SON WIN PBA EAST DOUBLES TITLE

The father and son team of Brian and Connor LeClair of Albany, N.Y., defeated fellow New Yorkers Joe Ciccone of Buffalo and Sammy Ventura of Syracuse, 2-0, in the best-of-three-game title match to win the PBA Doug Kent’s Central New York Doubles Classic at Doug Kent’s Rose Bowl Lanes in Newark, N.Y. on Sunday, Nov. 9.

The LeClairs won a first-game roll-off 8-6 after tying at 389 and completed the sweep with a 397-368 win in game two to claim the $3,000 first prize.

The event teamed one bowler under the age of 50 with a PBA50 player for the “over/under” doubles format. The win marked the 18th career regional title for Brian LeClair, who turned 50 on Oct. 20. Connor, the oldest of his two sons, is a student at Fordham University and was competing in his third PBA regional event. Connor, a non-member, does not earn a PBA title because he isn’t a PBA member.

The LeClairs defeated host and PBA Hall of Famer Doug Kent and his partner, Mike Tryniski of nearby Fulton, 2-1, while Ciccone and Ventura eliminated Matt O’Grady of Matawan, N.J., and Ray Edwards, Middle Island, N.Y., 2-0, in the semifinal round.

Tyler Jensen of Fort Worth, Texas, defeated Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, 221-198, to win the inaugural PBA Harmony Colorado Springs Southwest Open, presented by Budweiser, at Harmony Lanes in Colorado Springs on Sunday. Jensen earned $2,500 and his 15th PBA Regional title.

Jensen advanced to the final match by defeating Brett Cooper of Denver, 2-1; Jeff Hatt of Oklahoma City, 2-1, Dave Wodka, 10-9 in a one-ball roll-off after they tied at 224-224 in the semi-final contest.

Scroggins, who slipped into the finals by converting the 6-7 split in the final frame of qualifying, won his way to the title match by defeating Ben Laughlin from Chandler, Ariz., 2-1, in the Round of 12; Mike Keily from Golden, Colo., 2-0 in the Round of 8, and 2013 USBC Queen’s champion Diana Zavjalova from Latvia, 246-192, in the semifinal round.

Rich Horsley of Morrisville, N.C., defeated top qualifier Kyle Troup of Taylorsville, N.C., 223-219, to win his first PBA Regional title in the PBA Gloucester (Va.) Southern Open at Village Lanes Sunday. Along with his $2,300 prize, Horsley became eligible to enter the 50th anniversary Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions in February in Indianapolis.

In winning the title, Horsley defeated Chris Blackmore of Fairfax, Va., 221-203; and three-time PBA Tour titlist Dick Allen of Columbia, S.C., 217-181, to advance to the title match.

● In the final PBA Japan Regional event of the year, 17-year-old non-member Miku Urano and Yuni Shibata won the PBA Japan Scorpion Women’s and Scorpion Open titles, respectively, in Tokyo.

● The Nov. 14-16 schedule includes the PBA50 Liberty Lanes South Open in Gastonia, N.C.; the Go Bowl Northwest Doubles (a reduced entry fee tournament) in Pasco, Wash., and the Pro Bowl West Central/Midwest Cheetah Classic (a one-day reduced entry fee event) in Ft. Wayne, Ind.

Walter Ray Williams Jr. Headlines Field of 8 Finalists in 28th Round1 Japan Cup

by Bill Vint November 14, 2014 04:34

TOKYO, Japan – A month after celebrating his 55th birthday, Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Florida, put himself into position to add to his stunning portfolio, advancing to the Round of 8 finals in the 28th Round1 Japan Cup Friday at Minami Suna Round 1.

Williams, the only player who has bowled in all 28 modern Japan Cups, will try for his third Japan Cup title and a 48th PBA Tour title – expanding upon his PBA titles record – when the eight finalists bowl for the $51,700 first prize on national television in Japan Saturday. The eight-time PBA Player of the Year hasn’t won a PBA Tour title since the 2010 United States Bowling Congress Masters.

Williams, the 1991 and 2006 Japan Cup winner, will join fellow PBA Tour competitors Mika Koivuniemi, Finland; Chris Loschetter, Avon, Ohio, and Marshall Kent, Yakima, Wash., in the eight-man finals along with Japan’s Akio Ishihara and Takuya Miyazawa, and Korea’s Park Kyung Shin and Kim Young Kwan.

Williams advanced to the Round of 8 by sweeping Park Sang Pil, Korea, 3-0, and fellow PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke of Clermont, Fla., 3-0, before finally losing a game to Mike Fagan of Fort Worth, Texas, in a 3-1 win during Friday’s best-of-five-game elimination matches.

Another player pursuing a milestone first PBA Tour title is Kent, a former Robert Morris-Illinois University star and Team USA member, who needs a PBA victory to become eligible for the 50th anniversary Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions in February.

Saturday’s finals will be a continuation of the bracket elimination matches, but matches will be one game.

23 PBA Players Advance to Round1 Japan Cup Round of 64; Match Play Finals Begin Friday

by Bill Vint November 13, 2014 06:29

TOKYO, Japan – Twenty-three Professional Bowlers Association players who traveled to Tokyo to compete in the 28th Round1 Japan Cup have advanced to the field of 64 match play finalists at Minami Suna Round 1.

After 10 qualifying games by the field of 176 players from around the world on Thursday, Japan’s Shigenori Sakata led the 32 players who advanced out of A Squad with a 10-game total of 2,483 pins – a 248.3 average – while two-time PBA Tour titlist Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Michigan, paced the B squad qualifiers with a 2,437 total (243.7 average).

The tournament field was split into two squads of 88 players, with PBA Tour players divided between the two squads. Among those who failed to advance to match play was defending Japan Cup champion Yuya Kato, who became the first Japanese player in 25 years to win the event in the 47th edition of the tournament held last December.

Under the Japan Cup format, the top 32 qualifiers from A squad and the top 32 from B squad will begin best-of-five-game, single-elimination play Friday. Winners will remain in their respective brackets into the Round of 8, which will be nationally-televised in Japan.
