WEBER, WILLIAMS RANK AMONG BEST GOLFERS IN WORLD OF SPORTS

From bowlers and boxers to surfers and speed skaters, golf mania among professional jocks is rampant. Accordingly, Golf Digest identifies the best golfers from the world of sports in its Athlete-Golfers Ranking appearing in the June 2007 issue (on newsstands May 8). The Athlete-Golfers Ranking can be viewed now at www.golfdigest.com/athletes.

PBA Hall of Famers Walter Ray Williams Jr. and Pete Weber made this year’s list, ranking tied for 73rd and 84th, respectively.

Rick Rhoden, the former major-league baseball pitcher and all-time leading money-winner on the Celebrity Players Tour, is No. 1 in the magazine’s ranking with a plus-2.5 Handicap Index. (A Handicap Index is a measure of a player’s ability. The lower the Handicap Index, the better the player).

Rhoden, 53, is now a professional golfer trying to make his mark on the Champions Tour. “After 10 years I’d seen and been through everything in baseball,” he told Golf Digest. “Every course in America has scratch players, but that doesn’t mean they can make a dime playing professional golf.”

Rounding out the Top 10 are: No. 2 Ray Sheppard, former Detroit Red Wing (plus-2.5); No. 3 Sterling Sharpe, ex-Green Bay Packer (plus-2.4); No. 4 Dan Quinn, Ex-NHLer (plus-2.1); No. 5 Craig Hentrich, Tennessee Titans punter (plus-2.0); T-6 Ryan Longwell, Vikings kicker; T-6 Andy Van Slyke, former Gold Glove outfielder; T-8 Chris Chandler, ex-Falcons quarterback (plus-1.5); T-8 Trent Dilfer, former Ravens quarterback (plus-1.5) and T-8 Billy Joe Tolliver, ex-NFL quarterback.

Others in the diverse crowd of Golf Digest’s athlete-golfers are: John Elway (T-21); Pete Sampras (T-21); Michael Jordan (T-30); surfing great Kelly Slater (No. 42); Larry Bird (No. 60); Ivan Lendl (T-81); Oscar De La Hoya (T-158); skier Bode Miller (T-158); Martina Navratilova (T-158); Barry Bonds (T-172); Hank Aaron (T-209); and Daytona 500 winner Michael Waltrip (No. 215).

In most cases, the handicaps were gleaned from the U.S. Golf Association’s Golf Handicap and Information Network. Golf Digest also relied on information from state associations, the athletes themselves, professionals at their clubs and friends who have played with them.

Handicaps appearing without decimal points are unofficial estimates.

Of the 220 athletes on the ranking, 159 come from football, baseball and the NHL. Football has the most with 70, followed by baseball (58), hockey (31), and basketball (25).

Six women made the list, led by tennis great Gigi Fernandez (T-36) with a 1.6 handicap. The other five are: softballer Lisa Fernandez (T-121); WNBA player Lindsay Whalen (T-194); soccer star Brandi Chastain (T-209); former speed skater and Olympic gold medalist Bonnie Blair (No. 214); and former basketball standout Rebecca Lobo (219).

BARNES, WEBER TAKE PART IN $250,000 BOWLING SHOOTOUT IN LAS VEGAS

More than 300 amateur bowlers from across the country tried to earn big money going against top professionals Chris Barnes and Pete Weber in the $250,000 Bowling Shootout, May 2-3 at The Orleans in Las Vegas.

The event, certified and sponsored by the United States Bowling Congress, is a made-for-TV skins game tournament open to all U.S. amateurs 18 years of age and older. Amateurs earned expense-paid trips to Las Vegas through in-center qualifying rounds. Amateurs advanced in four average based divisions (up to 180, 181-190, 191-200 and 201+) with rolling strikes against their opponents being the key to success.

USBC local association officials worked as judges for the event's center qualifying rounds which ran from last October through early April. USBC also lent the assistance of its rules counselors to answer rules questions.

The amateurs rolled three rounds of bowl-offs May 2 with the top two joining Barnes and PBA Hall of Famer Weber the next day in the taped finals. The show will air at 2:30 p.m. EDT May 20 on ESPN. Bowl-off round winners receive a portion of $100,000.

The top two amateurs, Barnes and Weber will compete for frame-by-frame money worth $150,000 plus prizes worth up to $50,000. Bowlers with the highest pinfall win money for each frame. Money from one frame carries to the next in the two-tie, all-tie format.

Other sponsors are the Bowling Proprietors Association of America, Professional Bowlers Association, AMF Centers, Brunswick, ESPN, Touchtone Television Distribution, Greengrass Productions and Woody Fraser Productions.

Kulick Wins USBC Queens

by PBA Editor May 1, 2007 19:00
Story courtesy Lucas Wiseman, USBC

Kelly Kulick describes the past year as the most grueling of her life. All of her frustration, hard work and patience paid off Wednesday as she won the 2007 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Queens.

Kulick of Union, N.J., who a year ago made history by becoming the first woman to earn a full-time exemption on the Denny's PBA Tour, defeated Diandra Asbaty of Chicago 192-143 at AMF Carolina Lanes to win the biggest and most prestigious title in women's bowling.

"I've worked very hard at my game for a long time," Kulick said. "I've had a full year of practice and that was a big time advantage. After the year that I've had, this is the icing on the cake. This is the big blowout of the candle."

Kulick vaulted into the lead in the championship match after Asbaty left a 3-4-6-7-10 split in the eighth frame. Asbaty then left another split in the ninth frame, allowing Kulick to step up and seal the victory with two strikes.

"I didn't even look at the scoreboard, but after she left those splits I knew I just needed to step up and nail a couple shots," Kulick said. "That strike on the left lane in the eighth frame really put it away."

Asbaty, a two-time U.S. Amateur champion and nine-time Team USA member, said she never got comfortable in the championship match.

"I just didn't line up right and I didn't make good decisions," Asbaty said. "I just didn't get comfortable and with only one game for a title it's very important to get comfortable."

On the way to the title, Kulick defeated three-time Queens champion Wendy Macpherson of Henderson, Nev., and then knocked off Kristal Scott of Lawrence, Kan., in the semifinal. In the opening match, Macpherson advanced by defeating Team USA's Shannon O'Keefe of Rochester, N.Y.

Kulick took home $30,000 for first place in addition to the Queens tiara, pendant and crystal trophy. Asbaty earned $18,000 for second.

The USBC Queens, which is presented by Eldorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus, featured a field of 344 of the top female bowlers in the world competing for a total prize fund of $200,000. The event will be rebroadcast on ESPN at 1 p.m. on May 20.

Oz-Fest

by PBA Editor April 30, 2007 19:00
After bowling part-time on the PBA Senior Tour the last three seasons, David Ozio showed Tuesday night a full season of the PBA Hall of Famer could be a scary predicament for the rest of the Tour.

Ozio captured the season-opening PBA Senior Manassas Open at Bowl America Manassas, knocking off fellow PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia, 258-232, to win his second career PBA Senior Tour title.

The 2004 PBA Senior Rookie of the Year handed Petraglia his only loss of the day after he went 6-0 in match play to advance to the final. Petraglia was looking for his first win on the PBA Senior Tour since 2001.

Petraglia (Manalapan, N.J.) held the lead midway through the match. Facing an important shot in the 7th frame, Ozio chose to re-rack the right lane twice. The move paid off as he struck to stay close to Petraglia who then made a key mistake in the 8th frame when he chopped a 3-6 spare attempt. Ozio responded with four consecutive strikes to close out the match.

“That rack was closed and all week it was blower 7-10 when that happened. When you’re under that much pressure, and with that much adrenaline going, you tend to throw it hard so I was trying to slow it down. I didn’t want to throw a rocket,” Ozio said. “(Norm) Duke taught me to have all the different tools in the tool box. When you’re bowling the caliber of these players you are never comfortable until the wood is out.”

With his first victory since the 2004 PBA Senior U.S. Open, Ozio will be a force on this year’s Tour which is loaded with PBA Hall of Famers and other senior stars.

“I’m back to bowling for a living and I never thought that would be the case. This last year has been pretty amazing. I have bowled really well the whole year and it’s indescribable to get into synch like that,” Ozio (Beaumont, Texas) said. “This was an interesting week in that early in the week my pin carry was so bad that I spent three days trying to get the corner pins out. I made a big swing change the second game of the second round and after that I averaged 250 for the rest of the block. It managed to hold all the way through.”

To get to the finals, Ozio had to knock off two-time defending PBA Senior Player of the Year Tom Baker, 212-206, in the semifinal. Baker (King, N.C.) could have doubled in the 10th to lock out Ozio, but he left a 10-pin on his first shot in the 10th, and Ozio doubled for the win.

Petraglia advanced to the title match with a 258-195 win over Rohn Morton (Vancouver, Wash.)

The PBA Senior Tour next heads to Rockford, Ill., for the 2007 Hammer Ladies and Legends presented by the Illinois State Bowling Proprietors Association, May 5-10, at The Cherry Bowl. It marks he first PBA Ladies and Legends event since 1996. The top 24 senior bowlers and top 24 females after qualifying will team up for match play and a chance to take home $15,000.

Deja Vu

by PBA Editor April 29, 2007 19:00
It took just two days for Tom Baker to prove he’s not going to slow down in his third season on the PBA Senior Tour.
After getting off to a slow start Sunday in the first day of the season-opening 2007 PBA Senior Manassas Open, Baker blitzed the field Monday, averaging 248.50 over his eight games to take the lead at Bowl America Manassas with a 3,798 16-game pinfall.

Baker has dominated the last two PBA Senior Tour seasons, winning the PBA Senior Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year in 2005, his first season on Tour. Last season, he won a record-tying four titles in just nine events, including both Major events, to win his second consecutive PBA Senior Player of the Year award.

This season, the Tour features 13 events and a bevy of new players who should give Baker a challenge. PBA Hall of Famer and 15-time Denny’s PBA Tour titlist Steve Cook and seven-time titlist Hugh Miller are in their rookie seasons, and PBA Hall of Famer and 2004 PBA Senior Rookie of the Year David Ozio will be bowling full-time for the first time after bowling part-time the last three seasons.
Nevertheless, Baker is showing he’s still the man to beat. Last year’s runner-up in Manassas earned one of eight byes into the Round of 16.

“The competition is a lot better out here with Cook, Miller, Sam Zurich and some other guys, so it’ll be a lot tougher this year,” Baker, the only senior bowler who is also exempt on the Denny’s PBA Tour, said. “We’ll see what happens. The lanes seem to be a little bit higher scoring than last year. It’ll be tough to dominate in that kind of circumstance.”

Baker (King, N.C.) started the day in 14th, but opened with games of 247, 257, 257 and 260 to take the lead. He had no games below 235 Monday, firing four of his eight games over 250.

“I just couldn’t carry yesterday. I think I left 15 10-pins. I had games yesterday where I bowled just as well but I just carried better today,” Baker said.

Finishing right behind Baker was 10-time PBA Senior Tour titlist Dale Eagle (Tavares, Fla.) with 3,754, while Rohn Morton (Vancouver, Wash.), who fired one of two 300 games in Sunday’s first round, is third with 3,746. Sunday’s leader, Kerry Painter (Henderson, Nev.), fired a 300 game on Monday to finish fourth with 3,710. PBA Hall of Famer David Ozio (Beaumont, Texas) rounds out the top five with 3,696.

Bob Chamberlain (The Villages, Fla.) finished 32nd with 3,495 to earn the final spot in match play by just two pins over Judge Abruzzese (Bronx, N.Y.).

The top 32 advance to Tuesday’s match play with the top eight earning byes into the Round of 16. The Round of 32, featuring bowlers 17-32 bowling each other, gets underway at 9 a.m. ET. The field will be narrowed down to two bowlers who will compete for the $8,000 top prize Tuesday evening.
