Denny’s Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour stars Doug Kent and Tommy Jones will each participate in live national online chats next week to promote the 2007-08 Denny’s PBA Tour which kicks off its regular season with the 2007 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Masters next week in Milwaukee.
Kent, who was named the 2006-07 PBA Player of the Year after winning two of the four Majors, will chat with fans on USAToday.com on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at Noon ET. Kent is the defending champion of the 2007 USBC Masters after winning his second career Masters last season in Milwaukee. He will look to become the first bowler since Billy Welu in 1964 and ’65 to win back-to-back Masters titles.
