Michigan’s Bo Goergen Moves into Second-Round Lead in PBA Senior U.S. Open

by Jerry Schneider June 14, 2011 13:45

LAS VEGAS – Bowling in just his third Professional Bowlers Association Senior Tour tournament, Bo Goergen of Sanford, Mich., averaged 222.3 for six games Tuesday to move into the second-round lead of the PBA Senior U.S. Open presented by the Suncoast at the Suncoast Bowling Center.

After finishing second with a 1,424 six-game pinfall after Monday’s first round, Goergen bowled 1,334 in Tuesday’s second round with games of 202, 212, 238, 205, 234 and 243. His combined 12-game pinfall of 2,758 and overall average of 229.8 leads first-round leader Kevin Croucher of Grants Pass, Ore., in second with 2,731.

Leading qualifying was an unexpected surprise for Goergen who was struggling with his equipment and arm swing as late as the tournament’s practice session.

“At the Sun Bowl In The Villages I just didn’t bring strong enough equipment and I ended up missing the cut to match play by one pin so I wanted to make sure I was more prepared coming in here,” said the 51-year-old Goergen. “I was confident in my equipment but then I developed a problem with my arm swing that fortunately I was able to work out with the help of Chris Schlemmer (Storm Products representative) during practice.

“Tomorrow (Wednesday) I’ll be bowling on a fresh lane condition for the first time in the tournament so I’m going to gamble a little bit and try an outside line and see if I can get a good ball reaction from there.”

Georgen, who is a bowling proprietor, holds the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships three-game series record of 862 that he bowled to win the singles title in 2009. He was also a member of the USBC Open Championships team all events champion in 2010.

The 224-player field will bowl one more six-game qualifying round Wednesday after which the field will be cut to the top 56 players for another nine-game qualifying round Thursday morning. The field will then be cut to the top 24 players for three eight-game round-robin match play rounds conducted Thursday and Friday to determine the top four for the stepladder finals scheduled for Friday at 3:30 p.m. PT.

PBA legend Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., is in third after Tuesday’s round with a 2,723 pinfall. A win in the Senior U.S. Open for Williams would make PBA’s all-time career leader in Tour titles with 47 wins, the first to win U.S. Open titles on both the Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour and Senior Tour. Williams is also coming off a win in the recent Senior Mark Roth Allentown Open.

“I was really pleasantly surprised bowling as well as I did in the first block on fresh oil today,” said Williams, who had a 1,379 pinfall in Tuesday’s second round. “I was hoping to shoot 60 or 70 over (200 average) because the better scores usually come off the later squads but I had exceptional carry today and shot 179 over which will put me in great shape for tomorrow.”

JASON THOMAS: Rash Calls Out Belmonte During Shootout Taping

by Jason Thomas June 13, 2011 14:52

As I mentioned in my initial write-up promoting the upcoming GEICO PBA Team Shootout, the matches produced some very tight, very tense TV moments.

I promised a controversial clip, which is posted below. The backstory on the clip has to do with the "bottle-gate" incident from the season-ending Dick Weber PBA Playoffs just two short months ago. Those of you who remember that incident will recall that Brad Angelo called out Jason Belmonte during a match for making distracting noises with his water bottle. After the match, the two discussed the matter on-air and Belmonte later called the brush-up an unfortunate accident and expressed just how sorry he was.


Fast-forward to the 2011 GEICO PBA Team Shootout taping at 10 pin bowling lounge in Chicago Memorial Day weekend and another, similar incident occurred between Belmonte and Sean Rash. Just prior to the clip, Rash backed off a shot, implying that Belmonte's water bottle was again causing a distraction. When he got back up and threw his shot (at an extremely key juncture in the match), this is what happened:

(DISCLAIMER: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE! PLEASE DO NOT WATCH IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY SUCH MATERIAL)


After this, the match continued for several more highly intense, confrontational frames before a winner was finally decided.

Rash and Belmonte have some history in their pasts that helped fuel the fire even before any water bottles were involved. One such incident occurred during the 2010 World Series of Bowling Chameleon Championship. In this clip, Belmonte needed a strike in the 10th to lock himself on the show. When he did not come through, Rash needed a strike to take his place and was distracted at a key moment. Here is the Xtra Frame clip of what happened there:


Rivalry or not, these two young stars are on the very short list of players who will no doubt inherit the torch of bowling supremacy from the outgoing legends soon enough. From these clips, it is at least very obvious that both badly desire to be known as "the man" when it comes to who is considered the best in the world.

But let's not forget the other 18 stars who competed in the Team Shootout as well. As I mentioned in my prior blog, there were a number of outstanding performances and some incredible matches throughout the entire event. Posted below are two promo videos I produced using interviews I shot with the players in Chicago. These are the first two of eight, which will go up every Monday for the next six weeks. So be sure to check in next Monday for that and, of course, for more discussion on the matches at the Team Shootout once those begin airing on June 25 on ESPN.

Kevin Croucher Leads After First Round in PBA Senior U.S. Open

by Jerry Schneider June 13, 2011 13:46

LAS VEGAS – Kevin Croucher of Grants Pass, Ore., averaged 239.6 to lead the 227-player field after first-round qualifying Monday in the Professional Bowlers Association Senior U.S. Open presented by the Suncoast at the Suncoast Bowling Center.

Croucher, winner of the 2007 Senior Decatur (Ill.) Open for his lone Senior Tour title, had a 1,438 six-game pinfall total with games of 216, 243, 222, 257, 233 and 267, and had only one open frame which came in the third game.

“You want to get as many pins as you can in the later blocks because they are generally higher scoring,” said Croucher, bowling in the final block of the day. “Bowling the second or third block you can take advantage of the shot that develops when the lanes burn out. You just need to make all your spares and strike as much as possible.”

Rounding out the top five after first-day qualifying were Bo Goergen of Sanford, Mich., 1,424; Junichi Yajima, Japan, 1,421; Dale Traber, Cedarburg, Wis., 1,416 and Hugh Miller, Seattle, 1,396.

Croucher, whose best Senior U.S. Open finish was sixth which also came in 2007, has had a disappointing start to the 2011 season and decided to take some time off to work on his game which proved productive as he discovered a flaw in his delivery.

“I went back home and thanks to being able to use video I noticed that I was pulling up dramatically at the line,” said the 55-year-old bowling proprietor. “You could see it right away and I was able to fix it simply by staying down at the line. Had I not been able to see it on video I don’t know how long it would have taken me to figure it out.”

In what is considered the toughest test on the Senior Tour, all players will bowl two more six-game qualifying rounds Tuesday and Wednesday after which the field will be cut to the top quarter of the field for another nine-game qualifying round Thursday morning. The field will then be cut to the top 24 players for three eight-game round-robin match play rounds conducted Thursday and Friday to determine the top four for the stepladder finals scheduled for Friday at 3:30 p.m. PT.
