O'Neill golden in singles at World Men's Championships

MUNICH, Germany - In what has become one of international bowling's biggest rivalries, the United States topped Korea for the singles gold medal Saturday night at the 2010 World Tenpin Bowling Association World Men's Championships.

Team USA's Bill O'Neill defeated Korea's Choi Bok-Eum, 244-202, in the one-game gold-medal match at Dream Bowl Palace. England's Dominic Barrett and Team USA's Chris Barnes shared the bronze medal after falling in the semifinals.

It was the latest clash between the two world bowling powers, which have met for medals in men's events, women's events and youth events around the world over the past few years. And it was Team USA coming out on top in the opening event of this edition of the World Men's Championships.

"Hearing the national anthem play in another country after winning the gold medal is something you can't describe," said O'Neill, who won two titles on the Lumber Liquidators Professional Bowlers Association Tour last season. "It's hard to get too hyped up about it, though, because it was in singles. It would be an even more emotional experience with my other teammates up there with me. Hopefully, we get a chance to do that this week."

In the title match, O'Neill started strong with three consecutive strikes, a spare and five more strikes. By the time six frames were in the books, O'Neill had amassed a 44-pin lead and rolled to the title.

O'Neill entered the semifinals as the fourth seed after six games of qualifying earlier Saturday. He defeated top seed Barrett, 187-170, in the semifinals to advance to the gold-medal match.

"This feels pretty good because I think I was pretty fortunate to even be in the top four," said O'Neill, who advanced to the semifinals by a slim four-pin margin over Sayed Ibrahim Al Hashemi of the United Arab Emirates. "I had a tough semifinals match, and in the championship match I moved to the right 10 boards, played straighter and it worked out."

In the other semifinal, Barnes, the third seed, lost to No. 2 Choi, 217-191, after a devastating split in the eighth frame. Barnes, who said he never quite managed to figure out the right lane, left the 3-6-7-10 split in the eighth frame on that lane and never recovered against Choi.

"He had the better ball reaction by a lot and sometimes that just happens," said Barnes, who shot the tournament's second 300 game in qualifying. "I expected this pattern to be my weakest, so to come out here and get a medal is pretty satisfying."

The attention now shifts to the doubles event, which begins with the first three of five qualifying squads on Sunday.

Team USA left-handers Patrick Allen and Rhino Page, the defending world doubles champions, will team up on the opening squad. Barnes and O'Neill pair up for Sunday's final squad, while Tommy Jones and Wes Malott will compete together on the second squad Monday.

BowlingDigital.com will provide live streaming of the semifinals and finals of each event and coverage can also be viewed live on BOWL.com. The doubles semifinals and final are scheduled to begin on Monday at Noon Eastern.

The 2010 WTBA World Men's Championships features 356 competitors from 65 countries competing for medals in six events - five-player team, trios, doubles, singles, all-events and Masters match play.

U.S. Lefties Come Up Empty in Singles at World Men's Championships

by Jason Thomas August 13, 2010 08:17

Story courtesy Lucas Wiseman, USBC Communications

MUNICH, Germany - Team USA left-handers Rhino Page and Patrick Allen finished outside of the cut to the semifinals in singles Friday at the 2010 World Tenpin Bowling Association World Men's Championships.

With three of the five qualifying squads completed, Page was in 31st place with 1,235 for six games, an average of 205.8, while Allen sat in 67th place with 1,172, an average of 195.3. The rest of the Team USA lineup will compete Saturday.

The top four players after the five qualifying squads will advance to Saturday afternoon's semifinals. Finland's Pasi Uotila had the tournament's first perfect game and currently leads with 1,357.

Page had games of 183, 227, 208, 205, 212 and 200 on the medium oil pattern at Dream Bowl Palace. Allen started with 180 and 169 before closing with games of 207, 224, 193 and 199.

"I think we both struggled with our ball reaction and physically," Page said. "I don't want to put words in PA's mouth, but neither one of us were really sharp. The conditions are really demanding and it showed."

With four players yet to compete, Team USA still has medal hopes in the event. Bill O'Neill and Chris Barnes will bowl on the fourth qualifying squad, while Wes Malott and Tommy Jones will compete on the final squad.

The top four players after Friday's three rounds will sit and wait to see if they remain in position to contend for the gold medal. Mexico's Earnest Franco is second, trailing Uotila by four pins. In third is Japan's Nobuhito Fujii with 1,347, while fourth place belongs to Korea's Jang Dong-Chul at 1,346.

The 2010 WTBA World Men's Championships features 356 competitors from 65 countries competing for medals in six events - five-player team, trios, doubles, singles, all-events and Masters match play.

BowlingDigital.com will provide live streaming of the semifinals and finals of each event and coverage can also be viewed live on BOWL.com. The singles semifinals and final are scheduled to begin on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

PBA Unveils Plans for 2011 Tournament of Champions: Richest Tournament in Professional Bowling History

by Bill Vint August 13, 2010 05:09

SEATTLE, Wash. – The Professional Bowlers Association is gearing up for the richest tournament in professional bowling history, the $1 million PBA Tournament of Champions, and for the first time is creating an opportunity for any player who has ever won a PBA title to take a shot at the record $250,000 first prize.

The PBA Tournament of Champions will be conducted Jan. 16-22 at Red Rock Lanes in Las Vegas, Nev., and it will feature an all-new format featuring a “Champions field” to determine the players who will advance to the “Elite field.”

The “Elite field” will be composed of: 2010-11 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour exempt players; any player who was listed among the “50 Greatest Players in PBA History” during the PBA Tour’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2009; any PBA Hall of Famer; any player who has won five or more PBA Tour titles; any player who has won a PBA major championship; the 2010 PBA Senior U.S. Open and USBC Senior Masters champions, and the 2010 PBA Regional Players Championship and Regional Players Invitational winners.

All other PBA title winners, up to a maximum of 180, will make up the “Champions” field. The Champions field will include players who have won four or fewer PBA Tour titles or a PBA regional, PBA Women’s Series, PBA Senior Tour or PBA Senior Regional title as of Jan. 9, 2011. Titles won by players who were not members at that time are not eligible.

The Champions field will bowl 14 games – two seven-game qualifying rounds each on Sunday and Monday, Jan. 16 and 17. After 14 games, the top half of the Champions field (up to 90 players) will join the Elite field. Qualifying scores from the Champions round will be dropped.

The Elite field – including Champions field qualifiers and Elite players – will begin qualifying on Monday evening, Jan. 17. All bowlers then will bowl 20 games in four five-game blocks to determine the top 54 (based on 216 entries) who will advance into the Cashers Round.

After two eight-game blocks in the Cashers Round, the top 24 based on 36 total games will advance to a traditional 24 games of round-robin match play. At the conclusion of match play, the top four will advance to the TV final.

The first key step, however, is that all players eligible and wishing to enter must be full-fledged PBA members as of Oct. 1.

The entry fee for all Tournament of Champions competitors will be $750 if paid by Dec. 15 ($1,000 after Dec. 15). To enter, look for the Tournament of Champions entry link when you log on to pba.com as a PBA member.

The rewards for bowling well will be unprecedented in PBA history. The payoffs for making the four-player stepladder final on Saturday, Jan. 22, will be $250,000 to win, $100,000 for second, $60,000 for third and $40,000 for fourth place. Based upon a starting field of 216, last-to-cash will be $2,500 for 54th place.

Concluding the week will be the PBA Hall of Fame dinner on Saturday, Jan. 22. Details on that event will be announced soon.

The entire Tournament of Champions will be covered live on pba.com’s Xtra Frame video streaming service. To subscribe, visit pba.com and click on the Xtra Frame logo.

Details regarding television coverage of the Tournament of Champions will be announced soon.

The PBA Tournament of Champions is the PBA Tour’s signature event, an event filled with historical significance including the 2010 TOC which was won by Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J. – the first woman ever to bowl in the event, and the first woman ever to win a PBA Tour title.

Mike Henry Ends 10-Year Quest for First PBA Senior Tour Title in Senior Lake County Indiana Open

by Bill Vint August 12, 2010 14:03

HAMMOND, Ind. – Mike Henry of Brunswick, Ohio, ended his 10-year quest for his first Professional Bowlers Association Senior Tour title in the PBA Senior Lake County Indiana Open at Olympia Lanes Thursday, defeating Tim Kauble of Marion, Ohio, 247-166, in the title match.

Henry, at age 62, upset three consecutive favored players. Kauble was the title-match favorite after winning the PBA Golden Anniversary Senior Championship at Olympia Lanes two years earlier. In the semifinal round, Henry upset 47-time PBA Tour champion and PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., 235-192. In the match before that, he had eliminated another PBA Hall of Famer, Wayne Webb of Columbus, Ohio.

“It has been a lot of hard work and it paid off,” said Henry, who had previously finished second twice in PBA Senior tour events. “There were 117 great bowlers to start this tournament, but to beat Wayne Webb and Walter Ray? I wouldn’t trade this for anything.”

“Mike made the lanes look easy, but they were tough,” Kauble said. “If they had been easy, there would have been more left-handers in the hunt and there weren’t.”

Henry won a large eagle trophy along with an $8,000 prize and said he was going to mount the eagle on the front of his motorhome so everyone could see it while he drives down the highway to the Senior Tour’s next stop in Decatur, Ill.

Kauble advanced to the championship match by defeating Ron Profitt of Brookville, Ohio, 233-211, while Henry was eliminating Williams, in his rookie year on the PBA Senior Tour, in the other semifinal round match, 235-192.

Henry’s upset victory also played a key role in the PBA Senior Player of the Year points race, stalling Webb’s hopes of virtually locking up the PBA Senior Player of the Year title, and he prevented Williams from gaining meaningful ground on Webb in the points race.

Webb failed to add to his points total when he was eliminated in his best-of-three-game match against Henry, 2-0. Webb remained the leader with 48 points while Williams earned four points for finishing third to move into a tie for second place with Mark Williams (no relation) of Beaumont, Texas, both with 32. The top four finishers in each PBA Senior Tour event earn 16, 8, 4 and 2 Player of the Year points, respectively.

“I hate to lose, but I hate it even more when it’s my own fault,” Webb said. “Mike bowled a good match, but I made some bad shots. Oh, well. It’s not the first time and it won’t be the last.”

The PBA Senior Tour’s next event is the Senior Pepsi Open at Spare Time Lanes in Decatur starting Saturday and concluding Tuesday, Aug. 17. PBA.com’s Xtra Frame will provide live video streaming coverage of the Senior Pepsi Open finals beginning at 9 a.m. Central Time on Tuesday.
