Next Up On Xtra Frame: Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open June 1-5

by Jerry Schneider May 27, 2015 07:14

 

The PBA50 Tour returns to action as the world’s top bowlers ages 50 years and older will compete in the first major tournament of the 2015 season when the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open presented by Storm gets underway at the Suncoast Bowling Center June 1-5.

PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke won the 2014 Senior U.S. Open in his rookie PBA50 Tour campaign for his second win of the season and what turned out to be the launching pad for PBA50 Player and Rookie of the Year honors.

Fans can catch wire-to-wire coverage of the Senior U.S. Open via PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame beginning with first round qualifying at 11 a.m. ET (8 a.m. PT) Monday, June 1. For subscription information visit http://www.xtraframe.tv/pba/

Here’s a look at several of the compelling storylines for the 13th annual Senior U.S. Open:

Players hoping to become Senior U.S. Open’s first three-time winner: PBA Hall of Famers and Senior U.S. Open double winners Amleto Monacelli and Tom Baker will be trying to become the tournament’s first three-time winner. Monacelli won in 2012 and 2013 and Baker in 2005 and 2006. 

PBA legend Johnny Petraglia still going strong at 68: PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia, the only player in PBA history to win a national tour or PBA50 Tour title in six different decades, will try to set another longevity mark by becoming the oldest to win a PBA50 Tour event at age 68. The 14-time PBA Tour and eight-time PBA50 Tour winner is in his 50th year of PBA competition.

Former major league pitcher John Burkett to compete in first Senior U.S. Open: Two-time all-star John Burkett, who played Major League Baseball for 16 years, is competing in his rookie season on the PBA50 Tour. Burkett, who has competed in several PBA Tour and regional tournaments, had a successful run at the UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In the Villages earlier this season where he made match play and eventually finished 24th for his best finish of the season.

Las Vegas’ Ron Mohr tries for second Senior U.S. Open win: Two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr, who moved to Las Vegas from Alaska about a year ago, will be trying for his second Senior U.S. Open. He won it for the first time in 2011.

PBA legends Walter Ray Williams Jr. and Pete Weber trying for first Senior U.S. Open win: Two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Walter Ray Williams Jr., the PBA Tour’s all-time leader in career titles with 47 wins, will be trying for his 10th PBA50 Tour title and first Senior U.S. Open title after finishing second in 2011 and 2012. Williams, with best finishes of fifth and sixth this season, won the PBA50 Tour’s other major, the USBC Senior Masters, in 2014.

Weber, a 37-time PBA Tour winner on the national Tour, will be trying for his fourth PBA50 Tour title. So far this season Weber has second and third-place finishes to his credit. He won the USBC Senior Masters in 2013.

Mike Scroggins tries to become season’s first three-time winner: PBA50 Tour rookie Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, will be trying to become the season’s first three-time winner. The eight-time PBA Tour titlist is the season’s only multiple winner thus far capturing the Johnny Petraglia BVL Open and UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages titles.

Hall of Famers competing in the Senior U.S. Open include: Nine PBA Hall of Famers are entered in the Senior U.S. Open including Amleto Monacelli, Walter Ray Williams Jr., Pete Weber, Tom Baker, Norm Duke, Parker Bohn III, Johnny Petraglia, Randy Pedersen and Dale Eagle.

Challenging format: The Senior U.S. Open is considered the most demanding test for players because of its grueling format. Like the U.S. Open on the PBA Tour, the Senior U.S. Open demands patience, quality shot-making and a strong mental game over 50 games of qualifying and match play. The top four players will then meet in the stepladder finals to determine the winner.

Players vying for season-ending PBA50 Tour TV finals: Throughout the 2015 PBA50 Tour season, players are competing for the opportunity to advance to the PBA50 Tour Finals which will be held later this year at the PBA World Series of Bowling VII. 

Senior U.S. Open returns to Las Vegas for 10th time: While this will mark the 13th PBA Senior U.S. Open, it will be the 10th time the Suncoast has hosted the event.

Kyle Troup Wins PBA Wolf Open For First PBA Tour Title, Joins Father Guppy as PBA Tour Champions

by Jerry Schneider May 26, 2015 13:57

In his first television appearance, two-handed competitor Kyle Troup of Taylorsville, N.C., sporting a throwback Afro hairdo and Partridge Family bus-styled attire, won the PBA Wolf Open in the opening event of the Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Summer Swing.

The first of five Summer Swing events conducted at the Grand Event Center aired Tuesday on CBS Sports Network.

Proving the adage that the apple doesn’t fall from the tree, the son of equally-flamboyant eight-time Tour winner Guppy Troup, defeated 2014 PBA Rookie of the Year Marshall Kent, 229-179, in a championship match that featured two of PBA’s rising stars. In winning, Troup and his dad became the fourth father-son tandem in PBA history to win Tour titles.

“This is an unbelievable feeling,” said the 23 year-old Troup. “It’s going to take a while for me to realize it. “It’s a dream come true and it makes it all that much better that my family was able to be here to be a part of it.”

Troup, who qualified third for the stepladder finals conducted on specially-installed lanes in the Grand Event Center, was using an older technology urethane ball to attack the 32-foot Wolf lane condition, the shortest of the PBA’s “animal pattern” lane conditions.

“Anytime I can play the gutter and use urethane that’s a game I like to play,” Troup said. “I could see the other guys were having some trouble dealing with the transition and eventually it was going to get ugly, so I had confidence that using urethane and playing outside would be a good combination to have to deal with that. Today straighter is greater was the rule of the day.”

After Troup qualified for the finals earlier in the week at the nearby FireLake Bowling Center, Guppy, Kyle’s mother Sherri and brother Tyler were able to fly in from North Carolina to watch the finals telecast.

The win made the Troup’s the fourth father and son to record a PBA Tour win. Eugene and Don McCune, Pete and Dick Weber, and Jimmy and Don Johnson were the previous father-son combinations to win titles.

That’s the toughest match I’ve ever been a part of and I wasn’t even bowling in it,” Guppy Troup said. “I was hanging on every shot, so I’m a wreck right now. Maybe I’ll be less nervous the next time he makes a show but right now I’m just beside myself – it’s awesome.”

The stepladder began with two-time Tour winner Andres Gomez of Colombia defeating 15-time Tour winner Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., in the opening match, 215-195. Troup then beat Gomez in the second match, 203-163, to advance to the semifinal where he beat No. 2 qualifier five-time Tour winner Bill O’Neill, 202-188, to advance to the title match against Kent.

Kent was trying to win his second Tour title after winning the Kingdom International Open in Saudi Arabia in his rookie season. With his win, Troup automatically qualified for the Grand Casino Resort King of the Swing special event that will close the Summer Swing.

The Wolf Open is followed by the Bear Open (June 2), Badger Open (June 9), Oklahoma Open (June 16) and Oklahoma’s Grand Resort King of the Swing (June 23) all scheduled to air at 9 p.m. ET on the CBS Sports Network.

O’Neill Edges Belmonte for Top Finals Berth In PBA Oklahoma Open

by Jerry Schneider May 14, 2015 16:29

Making his third stepladder final of the Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Summer Swing, five-time PBA Tour champion Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa., won a position round match in the final match play round Thursday at FireLake Bowling Center to earn the top berth for the PBA Oklahoma Open finals.

O’Neill, who already qualified second for the Summer Swing Wolf and Bear Open finals, beat two-time defending PBA Player of the Year and Oklahoma Open defending champion Jason Belmonte of Australia, 255-214, in the final match to take the top spot. O’Neill finished the day with 10-8 overall match play record and 8,492 36-game pinfall (including bonus pins) to edge Belmonte, who finished second five pins behind with an 8,487 pinfall and 11-7 match play record.

“Obviously you’re looking at the big picture to get to this point in this tournament, but you can’t really ever let off the gas,” O’Neill said.

O’Neill, who says he sometimes has a tendency to over-analyze his game when he’s not bowling well didn’t have that problem during the Summer Swing.

“When I’m bowling well, I really don’t think about much at all,” O’Neill said. “In that last match I knew what I had to do and just threw it because may game was where it needed to be.”

In the final match play round, conducted on PBA’s 52-foot Badger lane condition, O’Neill was 4-2 and had games of 259, 217, 214, 196, 214 before his 255 in the position round match.

The Oklahoma Open is the fourth of five events that comprise the Summer Swing. All five events (Wolf, Bear, Badger and Oklahoma Opens plus the Grand Casino Resort King of the Swing) will be taped by the CBS Sports Network Saturday and Sunday at the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort Event Center.

Belmonte, a favorite to win his third consecutive Player of the Year crown after winning the United States Bowling Congress Masters for the third consecutive year and the Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions for the second consecutive year earlier this season, will be trying for his third title of the season and 13th of his career. For Belmonte it was his second Summer Swing stepladder final after qualifying third for the Bear Open.

Earning the third qualifying position for the Oklahoma Open finals, was 15-time Tour winner Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., who also qualified fifth for the Wolf Open and fourth for the Bear Open. He ended the day with a 12-5-1 match play record and 8,272 pinfall.

Thirteen-time PBA Tour winner Patrick Allen of Mount Kisco, N.Y., was the first round leader of the Badger and Wolf Opens only to drop out of contention for a stepladder spot after the final round. He hung on to earn a spot in the Oklahoma Open final qualifying fourth with a 9-8-1 record and 8,247 pinfall. He will be trying to end a six-year drought without a PBA Tour title.

Wrapping up the top five was two-time Tour winner Andres Gomez of Colombia who has already qualified fourth for the Wolf Open finals. Gomez finished the day with a 11-7 record and 8,206 pinfall.

All of the 18 match play finalists earned their spots in the Oklahoma match play rounds through their aggregate first round qualifying pinfall totals in the Wolf, Bear and Badger Opens.

England’s Dom Barrett Averages 227.6 to Earn Top Qualifying Berth For PBA Badger Open Finals

by Jerry Schneider May 13, 2015 17:09

Four-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour titlist Dom Barrett of England averaged 227.6 Wednesday at FireLake Bowling Center to capture the top qualifying berth for Saturday’s stepladder finals in the PBA Badger Open.

Barrett completed qualifying with a 2,732 12-game pinfall total on the 52-foot Badger lane condition, bowling games of 192, 222, 234, 225, 237 and 234 in Wednesday’s final round.

“It feels good to get here because I haven’t been bowling well,” Barrett said. “I think I over-bowled the past few months and it has taken its toll. I took the month of April off to fix some bad habits and get in better shape and the work seems to be paying off.

“In the first two events (of the Summer Swing) I’ve been bowling good but not great but I just decided to put my head down after the first round today and went for the lead.”

Barrett topped three-time Tour winner Rhino Page of Orlando, Fla., who qualified second 14-pins behind with a 2,718 pinfall total. Two-time Tour titlist Ronnie Russell of Marion, Ind., who won last year’s Summer Swing Bear Open, qualified third with a 2,709 pinfall total.

The PBA Tour’s all-time titles leader, Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Fla., qualified fourth with a 2,680 pinfall. The Hall of Famer will try to end a five-year drought without a win to extend his record to 48 titles. His 47th title came in the 2010 United States Bowling Congress Masters.

“This feels awesome,” said Williams after making it into the top five for the finals. “I’ve been struggling so much that I had second thoughts about even coming to the Summer Swing. I didn’t bowl well in the Wolf and Bear Opens but thought maybe I can make something work on the Badger pattern and just grinded it out to get here.”

Making the last qualifying spot was Shawn Maldonado of Houston, who is one of a few players on Tour who uses the unique two-handed delivery. Trying for his first PBA Tour title, he finished qualifying with a 2,675 pinfall.

The Badger Open is the third of five events that comprise the 2015 Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Summer Swing. All five events (Wolf, Bear, Badger and Oklahoma Opens plus the Grand Casino Resort King of the Swing) will be televised by CBS Sports Network and will air on successive Tuesday nights beginning May 26. The Badger Open, will be taped Saturday at 5:15 p.m. CT at the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort Event Center and will air June 9 at 9 p.m. ET.

With the completion of the Badger Open first round earlier in the day, the 18 spots were determined for the PBA Oklahoma Open match play rounds on Thursday. Three six-game match play rounds will be conducted at 10 a.m., 2 and 6:30 p.m. on each of the Summer Swing lane conditions (Wolf, Bear and Badger) at FireLake with the top five after match play advancing to the stepladder finals Sunday at noon at the Grand Event Center.

The top five heading into Oklahoma Open match play were Bill O’Neill, Langhorne, Pa., 4,142; Marshall Kent, Yakima, Wash., 4,112; Patrick Allen, Mount Kisco, N.Y., 4,093; Russell, 4,026, and Barrett, 4,022.
