Earnest Climbs Ladder to Win PWBA Rochester Open Title

To calm herself as she looked to capture her first Professional Women’s Bowling Association title, Josie Earnest thought about the patches she received as a youth bowler, the ones that reminded her that bowling is fun.

The technique apparently worked for the Nashville, Tennessee, resident as Earnest won three matches in the stepladder finals, including a 229-180 victory over Shannon O’Keefe of O’Fallon, Illinois, in the title match, to capture the PWBA Rochester Open title.

“It means everything,” Earnest said of winning her first PWBA title. “It’s pretty cliché to say, but I think growing up you compete, you go to college, and you look forward to bowling professionally. The icing on the cake is winning a title. You want to live out your dream, and I’m just really excited I was able to do it in Season 2.”

Earnest’s road to the title meant going through a United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer and a 2016 major title winner before taking on O’Keefe, one of the top competitors on the PWBA Tour this season.

Earnest started with a 187-159 victory over USBC Hall of Famer Carolyn Dorin-Ballard of Keller, Texas. Earnest then struck in six of the first eight frames of the semifinal match in a 238-214 victory over Colombia native Clara Guerrero, who won the Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship earlier this season.

“In some ways, it’s difficult because you have three really fantastic competitors you have to beat to get there,” Earnest said about her road to the title. “At the same time, it allowed me to get comfortable. I was nervous that first match; it was one of my first matches on TV in a long time and I was bowling against a hall of famer. You try to eliminate those distractions. But it allowed me to get comfortable.”

Earnest’s last TV appearance came in 2012 at the USBC Queens, held at the International Training and Research Center in Arlington, Texas. She bowled well in the opening match but lost to Liz Johnson, 268-223. She would make the stepladder finals of the PWBA Detroit Open last season, beating Kelly Kulick in the opening match before falling to Johnson in the semifinal.

Against top-seed O’Keefe in the title match, Earnest was facing a competitor who was making her fifth championship-round appearance and who was seeking her fourth title of the 2016 PWBA season.

“You just have eliminate that thought,” Earnest said. “I kept thinking of those patches you would get as a youth bowler that said BIF, Bowling Is Fun. I said before the match that the sun would come up tomorrow whether I shoot 100 or 250, so I’m just going to go out and enjoy the moment because you never know how many of those you will have.”

Starting in the fourth frame, Earnest strung together four strikes, while O’Keefe opened in the sixth after leaving the 4-6-7, helping Earnest coast to the win and qualify for the season-ending Smithfield PWBA Tour Championship, set for Sept. 1-4 at Uptown Alley in Midlothian, Virginia.

All 2016 tournament champions, who are PWBA members at the time of their victory, receive an automatic invitation to the 16-player Smithfield PWBA Tour Championship. The remainder of the field is filled through the points list.

Earnest, who is the assistant women’s bowling coach at Vanderbilt University, said her family, who owns a bowling center, always have been a motivating factor, but her players also push her to be better as a competitor.

“My girls really inspire me to be better and give them something to look up to,” said Earnest, who bowled at Vanderbilt and was inducted into the school’s athletic hall of fame in 2013, the first member of the bowling program to earn the honor. “It’s exciting to know they are excited for you. I had a couple of them in the stands, and it’s exciting for them to see it and want to be here someday.”

The qualifying and match-play rounds of the PWBA Rochester Open took place July 8-9 at AMF Gates Lanes in Rochester, New York. The stepladder finals were held Aug. 7 at Stardust Bowl in conjunction with the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open, along with the PWBA St. Petersburg-Clearwater Open finals which will air on CBS Sports Network on Aug. 30.

Michael Haugen Jr. Goes “Old School” to Win PBA Tour Xtra Frame Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic

Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix, Ariz., a noted “old school” bowler who defies contemporary power-game standards, was nearly perfect in defeating Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa., 289-255, Sunday to win the PBA Tour Xtra Frame Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic at Mid-County Bowling and Entertainment.

Haugen, in winning his fifth career PBA Tour title, started with 10 strikes before leaving a 4 pin to end his bid for a perfect game. Playing straight up the lanes with minimal hook by today’s standards, Haugen picked up his first title since winning the 2014 PBA Scorpion Championship.

“Like they say in movies, I’m old but not obsolete,” Haugen said. “Today straight was great. I got to play my ‘A’ game and it was good.”

Haugen tripped a couple of high-pocket shots, but, “You need to catch a few breaks out here to win and today I was lucky enough to get them,” he said. “I really wanted to win again.”

Haugen, who turns 50 in December, noted his fifth win means he’s halfway to PBA Hall of Fame eligibity, but he hasn’t given up hope.

“Number five is halfway. It’s a long way to go when you’re almost 50, but you never know,” he said. “Maybe someday I’ll make it to the ‘hall.’ That’s what drives me.”

In the semifinal match, O’Neill broke up a 7-10 split in the ninth frame to keep a string of five strikes intact in a 244-235 win over John Szczerbinski of North Tonawanda, N.Y., ending Szczerbinski’s bid for his first PBA title.

In the first stepladder match, O’Neill struck on eight of his first nine shots to send two-hander Kyle Troup of Taylorsville, N.C., to the sidelines, 255-220.

The PBA Tour now heads to Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Mich., Sept. 5-11, for the PBA Fall Swing. The multi-event competition will award four PBA Tour titles (Wolf, Bear, Badger and Detroit Open titles) along with a Fall King of the Swing special event. All preliminary rounds will be video-streamed live, exclusively on PBA’s Xtra Frame online bowling channel, and all five stepladder finals will air on CBS Sports Network on consecutive Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET, beginning Sept. 21.

The sixth of eight events in the PBA Tour Extra Frame tournament series will be the PBA Xtra Frame Parkside Lanes Open in Aurora, Ill., Oct. 1-2.

New York’s Darren Andretta Leads Qualifying in PBA Tour Extra Frame Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic

Darren Andretta of New Hyde Park, N.Y., who has never finished higher than seventh place in a Professional Bowlers Association regional event and has cashed only once in 20 PBA Tour events, averaged 233 for seven games Saturday to lead the field of 24 finalists into Sunday’s match play finals in the PBA Tour Xtra Frame Gene Carter Pro Shop East Classic at Mid-County Bowling and Entertainment

Andretta, a 25-year-old left-hander, rolled games of 245, 233, 223, 236, 209 259 and 226 for a 1,631 pinfall total Saturday to lead the sold-out field of 180 bowlers. The six-year PBA member has finished seventh in two PBA Regional tournaments, including the 2011 event at Mid-County Entertainment.

He finished qualifying five pins ahead of Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix and 10 pins ahead of E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind., who is trying for his third Xtra Frame PBA Tour title. Tackett, the 2013 PBA Rookie of the Year, is the leader in the $10,000 winner-take-all Xtra Frame PBA Tour points race. He won his previous PBA Tour titles in Xtra Frame events in Lubbock, Texas, in 2015 and Carpentersville, Ill., earlier this year.

The top 24 will begin the modified 16-game round-robin match play finals Sunday at 9 a.m. ET. Based upon combined 23-game pinfall totals, including 30 bonus pins for matches won, the top four will compete in a stepladder finale at the conclusion of match play.

All of Sunday’s competition will be video-streamed live, exclusively on PBA’s Xtra Frame online bowling channel. To subscribe, visit pba.com and click on the Xtra Frame link.

Monacelli Wins PBA50 National Championship to Benefit Riley Hospital for Children for Fourth Career PBA50 Major Title

Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli concluded the 2016 PBA50 Tour season by winning the PBA50 National Championship to Benefit Riley Hospital for Children Wednesday for his fourth PBA50 major title on the tour for players 50 years and older.

The Venezuelan defeated two-time PBA Tour and one-time PBA50 Tour titlist Sam Maccarone of Blackwood, N.J., 224-212, in the title match at Signature Lanes to also win his second title of the season and the seventh of his career.

As the No. 3 qualifier for the stepladder finals, the 54-year-old Monacelli had to win two come-from-behind matches to get to the title match.

In the second match, he left splits in the first two frames that he failed to convert before roaring back with six consecutive strikes to beat fellow hall of famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., 235-233.

In the semifinal match against two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, Monacelli was down by 30 pins in the fourth frame before stringing seven strikes together to win the match 256-244 to advance to the title match against Maccarone.

“I hope I can perform mentally and physically the way I did the last two days in every tournament I bowl,” said Monacelli, who is also a 20-time PBA Tour winner. “Those two matches were the best example of how I was able to stay calm and focus after making mistakes.

“It would have been easy for me to lose my composure and let that get the best of me,” he continued. “I wasn’t thinking, oh, I’m going to lose the match. I was thinking about what I needed to do to throw a better shot. It helped that in both cases it was early in the match because that gave me time to make the corrections.”

Monacelli’s other PBA50 major titles were the USBC Senior Masters in 2015 and back-to-back PBA Senior U.S. Open titles in 2012 and 2013.

In winning his second title of the season, Monacelli became only the second player to win multiple titles this season. PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber, who won a record six PBA50 Tour titles, was the other.

“I’m just trying to concentrate on learning as I go and don’t over analyze,” said Monacelli, who won the PBA50 Fountain Valley Open in June. “The way my game is now it takes me back to my best years on the tour in the ‘90s. I just need to do my thing.”

In the opening stepladder match Bohn, a three-time PBA50 Tour winner, beat Hall of Famer Brian Voss of Centennial, Colo., who was trying for his second win of the season, 216-180.

The other 2016 PBA50 major winners were Weber, who won the Senior U.S. Open and Senior Masters titles and Hall of Famer Norm Duke who won the Treasure Island Resort & Casino World Championship.

Bryanna Coté Wins First Title at 2016 PWBA Lexington Open

It may have been the first television appearance of her Professional Women’s Bowling Association career, but you couldn’t tell, as Bryanna Coté of Red Rock, Arizona, coolly defeated two of the hottest players in the world to earn her first career title at the 2016 PWBA Lexington Open.

Of course, the 30-year-old right-hander was among friends in the event’s stepladder finals, so she was a little more comfortable – as comfortable as one could be competing under the bright TV lights against three icons of the modern PWBA, all of whom she’s looked up to for inspiration.

Coté, a three-time member of Team USA, struck eight times in a 228-178 title-match win against Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey, who still is without a title in nine championship-round appearances since the return of the PWBA Tour in 2015.

The path to the victory and $10,000 top prize included a 192-180 semifinal victory over Shannon O’Keefe of O’Fallon, Illinois, who was in search of her fourth win of the 2016 PWBA Tour season.

CoteBryanna2016PWBALexingtonOpenForWeb250x250Coté is the fifth first-time champion in 11 PWBA Tour events this season, joining Singapore left-hander Cherie Tan (PWBA Storm Sacramento Open), Colombian teammates Rocio Restrepo (PWBA Greater Detroit Open) and Clara Guerrero (Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship) and amateur Bernice Lim, who became the first player from Singapore to win the United States Bowling Congress Queens.

“I’ve been replaying it in my head, and I’m still in shock that it really happened,” Coté said shortly after the TV set went quiet. “To be a PWBA Tour titlist, to even be able to say that after there not being a tour for so long, is amazing.”

Each player who joined Coté on the PWBA Lexington Open show has played an important role in her development, and while they’re competitors on the lanes, their friendship and Team USA sisterhood runs much deeper once the pindecks go dark.

She grew up near left-hander Shannon Pluhowsky, secretly admiring her as a big sister. She has been inspired by the humble run of success O’Keefe has been on this year. And, like most young bowlers, she has watched with awe as Kulick has blazed a trail for female bowlers.

Now, her name will appear on a champion banner and hang next to theirs, and every other PWBA champion, above the lanes at all future PWBA Tour events.

“Being on Team USA, you become like family, and Bryanna’s like my little sister – I absolutely adore here,” said O’Keefe, who won this year’s Nationwide PWBA Sonoma County Open, PWBA Lincoln Open and Professional Bowlers Association/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles (with Bill O’Neill). “I couldn’t have been more proud of her. She bowled incredible and now has joined the elite group that can call themselves PWBA champions. It was an honor to be able to witness her first title. It gave me chills.”

In the opening match of the Lexington Open stepladder against Pluhowsky, O’Keefe overcame three open frames with strikes in frames seven through nine and had a chance to close out the game, but back-to-back 7 pins in the final frame left the Team USA teammates tied at 180.

The game was decided in a one-ball roll off as O’Keefe tripped the 9 pin forward for a 10-9 win. Pluhowsky, who bowled first, left a 7 pin on her first attempt. Pluhowsky, the lone southpaw on the show, finished fourth.

Coté’s travels as a collegiate standout at Central Missouri and as a representative of the United States have taken her to many memorable places, but her first visit to Kentucky now will stand out as a defining moment in her professional career.

“Kentucky now is going to be my second home,” joked Coté, who was a four-time National Tenpin Coaches Association Player of the Year at Central Missouri. “I actually had two ladies watch me all day Saturday in Lexington, and it meant a lot to have them there. I met them in Las Vegas when I subbed on their squad at the Women’s Championships. After we met in Vegas, they came to watch me in Kentucky, and were there all day. It was like having two grandmas, and I’m so thankful for their support.”

Winning the title helped secure Coté another trip to the Smithfield PWBA Tour Championship.

The 2016 edition of the season-ending event will take place at Uptown Alley in Midlothian, Virginia, from Sept. 1-4. The 16-player field will include all eligible champions from the 2016 season, and the remaining spaces in the bracket will be filled from the points list.

All qualifying and match play rounds of the PWBA Lexington Open were held at Lexington’s Collins Bowling Center-Eastland on July 1-2 and contested on a challenging 38-foot oil pattern.

The stepladder finals were held Aug. 7 at Stardust Bowl in conjunction with the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open and the finals of the PWBA Rochester Open and PWBA St. Petersburg-Clearwater Open.

The U.S. Women’s Open finals aired live on CBS Sports Network, while the PWBA Rochester Open and PWBA St. Petersburg-Clearwater Open finals will air on CBS Sports Network on Aug. 23 and Aug. 30, respectively.

After Considering Retirement, Don Sylvia Wins PBA60 Dick Weber Championship

Three-time PBA50 Tour winner Don Sylvia of Daytona, Beach, Fla., considered retiring from professional competition earlier this season, but entered the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by Hammer to give it one more shot.

It turned out to be the right decision for the 2003 PBA50 Rookie of the Year as he beat two-time PBA50 Player of the Year and eight-time PBA50 Tour titlist Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, 236-196, in the title match at Pro Bowl West Saturday for his first PBA60 title.

“Up until five weeks ago I thought about retiring,” said a tearful Sylvia after winning. “It was an unbelievable tournament for me and it was a dream come true. It’s amazing to win a tournament with Dick Weber’s name on it.

“I’m still undecided on what I should do, but I don’t think you can ever really give up this game entirely,” he continued. “I spent the last month or so getting in shape and changing all of my equipment to get ready specifically for this tournament. The hard work paid off.”

The tournament, named in honor of the late PBA legend, is for players who are ages 60 and over.

“It’s just an honor to be able to bowl with these guys and to bowl in a final with a hall of famer like Johnny Petraglia and a future hall of famer like Ron Mohr, that’s what really makes it special,” the 63-year-old Sylvia added.

In the opening stepladder match the 69-year-old Petraglia, who had finished second in the tournament the past two seasons beat Ron Boroff of Mansfield, Texas, 242-223. Sylvia, who was the No. 3 seed, then beat Petraglia 224-194 before defeating Jim Knoblauch of Waukesha, Wis., in the semifinal match 211-209 to advance to the title match against No. 1 seed Mohr who is a native of Fort Wayne.

Knoblauch bowled a 300 game in the position round match to vault into the No. 2 seed for the finals.

The season wraps up with the PBA50 National Championship presented by Riley Hospital for Children Aug. 14-17 at Signature Lanes in Elkhart, Ind.

Sweden’s Jesper Svensson Wins WBT Thailand for Third 2016 PBA Tour Title

Sweden’s Jesper Svensson, a 21-year-old left-handed two-handed player, became the first three-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour titlist of 2016 Friday when he defeated Australia’s Sam Cooley, 237-213, to win the WBT Thailand title at Blu-O Rhythm and Bowl Siam Paragon.

Svensson, who became the youngest player to win the PBA FireLake Tournament of Champions earlier in the year, also won the WBT Brunswick Euro Challenge in Munich, Germany, in March. The Thailand victory was his fifth PBA Tour title and his third World Bowling Tour title in two years. Svensson also won the 2015 WBT Kingdom of Bahrain Open and the PBA Chameleon Open on his way to being selected as PBA’s 2015 Rookie of the Year.

Svensson, who clinched the top qualifying berth for the eight-player modified stepladder finals with a 300 game in his final qualifying game, locked up the victory with three strikes in the 10th frame to counter Cooley’s ninth-10th frame double. Along with his title, Svensson earned one 1 million Thai baht, or roughly $32,260 U.S. dollars. Cooley, a second-year PBA Tour player, also threw a 300 in his final qualifying game to clinch the no. 2 berth for the finals.

PBA Tour players will return to the U.S. next week to resume the chase for the $10,000 winner-take-all prize in the Xtra Frame PBA Tour Series. The PBA Xtra Frame Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic at Mid-County Lanes in Middletown, Del., is set for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 20-21, offering a projected $15,000 first prize and a PBA Tour title to the winner if he/she is a PBA member. The tournament will be covered live from start to finish by PBA’s Xtra Frame online video streaming service. To enroll as an Xtra Frame subscriber, visit pba.com.

Ohio’s Eddie Graham Wins PBA50 DeHayes Insurance Group Championship For First PBA50 Tour Title

Eddie Graham of Centerville, Ohio, joined the PBA50 Tour in June and immediately made an impact by qualifying for match play in eight consecutive tournaments. He parlayed that success into a win in the PBA50 DeHayes Insurance Group Championship presented by Pro Bowl West and Ebonite Tuesday at Pro Bowl West.

In a title match where strikes were hard to come by and spares were good enough, Graham defeated three-time PBA50 Tour and five-time PBA Tour winner Bob Learn Jr. of Erie, Pa., 186-156, for his first career PBA50 Tour title.

“It was ugly out there for both of us,” said Graham, who has won five PBA regional titles including the 2007 PBA Regional Players Invitational. “I was having problems reading the front part of the lane but eventually I found a place where I could throw the ball soft, let the lane do the work, and at least get the ball to the pocket.”

Graham bowled on the PBA Tour part-time from 1994 to 1998 but didn’t achieve the success he was hoping for. Like many bowlers who turn 50, he saw the PBA50 Tour as an opportunity to relive the dream.

“It was the right time to give it another shot,” said Graham, whose previous best finishes this season were ninth in the recent PBA50 South Shore Open and 12th in the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open. “I’ve been a bowler my whole life so looked at it as another chapter in my bowling career, and here I am.”

In the opening stepladder match, PBA Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli of Venezuela, trying for his second title of the season, defeated Fort Wayne native and two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr, 217-202, who notched his sixth top five finish of the season.

In the second match, Monacelli beat two-time PBA50 Tour winner Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., 195-179, to advance to the semifinal match against Graham. Boresch’s fourth-place finish was his third consecutive finals appearance after coming off back-to-back runner-up finishes.

In the semifinal, Graham handily beat Monacelli 257-175 to advance to the title match against Learn who was the top qualifier for the finals.

Action continues at Pro Bowl West Aug. 11-13 with the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by Hammer for players 60 years of age and older.

The season wraps up with the PBA50 National Championship presented by Riley Hospital for Children Aug. 14-17 at Signature Lanes in Elkhart, Ind.

Liz Johnson claims fifth U.S. Women’s Open title

For the third consecutive time, and fifth overall, United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer Liz Johnson will be taking home the U.S. Women’s Open trophy, and she will savor every moment.

Johnson, of Cheektowaga, New York, won four consecutive matches Sunday at Stardust Bowl, including a 208-143 victory over Shannon Pluhowsky of Dayton, Ohio, in the title match, to capture her fifth U.S. Women’s Open title. Her first one came 20 years ago, and she also won in 2007, 2013, and 2015 (tournament was not held in 2014).

Only fellow USBC Hall of Famer Marion Ladewig owns more U.S. Women’s Open titles with eight, five of which she won consecutively.

“You never know when the next title is going to happen, especially another major,” said Johnson, who became a little emotional in the final frame of the title match. “To be in the category of having five U.S. Opens, it just kind of hit me. I just so thankful I’m still able to do this at a high level. I’m just incredibly happy and proud that I got a fifth U.S. Open title.”

Pluhowsky, who qualified 24th for match play and made the run all the way to the top seed, was attempting to become first player to go from the No. 24 spot to a Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour title since Jeanne Naccarato accomplished the feat in 1988.

“I came out today, and the lanes didn’t play anything similar to what they had all week,” Pluhowsky said. “You just take the good with the bad, I guess, and move on.”

Johnson said she didn’t feel great going into the tournament, especially coming off what she said was a “horrible” performance at the PBA/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles tournament. But, she quietly stayed near the leaders throughout the week, and then needed to strike out in the final frame against her last opponent in match play to reach the show.

“This was one of the biggest grinding U.S. Opens I’ve been a part of,” Johnson said. “I like the low scoring. I would rather have the low scoring and the grind, that’s what it’s about. That’s what makes it a major.”

That final match-play victory would earn her the No. 4 seed, meaning Johnson would lead off the TV show after not bowling well on the fresh 39-foot Sport condition, on which the average to make match play was 199.06.

“The higher the pressure, the better I focus,” Johnson said. “I started feeling more and more comfortable today than I have in the last couple of days. When you are in an uncomfortable area, and have to play your C and D game and try to place it, I think I was a little more in my comfort zone today. I tried a different ball, played with the conditions a little bit, and it was pretty good.”

Johnson started off her run to the title with a 207-168 victory over Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey. In the first four frames, Johnson struck, while Kulick had two open frames.

Against Singapore’s New Hui Fen in the second match, Johnson was looking to close out the match in the 10th but fouled on her first shot. She would spare, and then get a nine-count, but New couldn’t take advantage of the break, losing 215-200.

New’s Team Singapore teammate Shayna Ng also struggled early in her match against Johnson, failing to mark in three consecutive frames, as Johnson earned a 209-180 victory to advance to the title match.

Competitors at the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open bowled 24 qualifying games over three days before the field was cut to the top 47 for an additional eight games. After 32 games, the top 24 advanced to three rounds of match play to determine the five finalists for Sunday’s stepladder, based on the 56-game pinfall totals, including 30 bonus pins for each match-play win.

All qualifying and match-play rounds of the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open were broadcast live on Xtra Frame.

Pluhowsky’s incredible day nets top seed for U.S. Women’s Open

Shannon Pluhowsky finished her 32nd and final qualifying game at the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open with three strikes for a 172 total and then had to wait to see if she would be among the top 24 to advance to match play.

She made it, and as the No. 24 qualifier, Pluhowsky, of Dayton, Ohio, then made a remarkable run at Stardust Bowl to earn the top seed for Sunday’s stepladder finals. CBS Sports Network will have live coverage of the finals starting at noon Eastern.

In the opening match, three-time winner Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey, will take on two-time defending champion Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, New York, who is looking for her fifth U.S. Women’s Open title, with the winner to face No. 3 seed New Hui Fen of Singapore. The winner of the second match will advance to meet Singapore’s Shayna Ng, the No. 2 seed, for the right to meet Pluhowsky in the title match.

That Pluhowsky made the TV show, much less grabbed the No. 1 seed Saturday, is remarkable to even her.

“It was a long 20 minutes, or however long it was, to find out if I made the cut,” Pluhowsky said. “After that, it was like I had nothing to lose – I already was at the bottom. So, it was time to work my way back toward the top.”

After moving up a few spots in the standings Friday during the first eight games of round-robin match play, Pluhowsky made the big push Saturday morning. Her 1,774 total for eight games, 101 pins more than the second-place total for the block, moved her into third overall. She then added a 1,702 final block.

The lone left-hander in the match-play field, she was the only bowler to crack the 1,700-mark on Saturday, and she did it twice to average 217.25 for the day on the tough 39-foot Sport condition..

“Being such a grind, this probably was the best 16 games I’ve bowled,” Pluhowsky said. “Obviously not playing my comfort zone, playing completely out of it, but I had some really good ball choices. They kept me in the same zone, and that was the key. We knew we were going to play in and ride it until then end. That’s not my ‘A’ game at all, but I felt I did a pretty good job at it.”

In the position round, the final game Saturday, local amateur Jodi Gawlik of Schaumburg, Illinois, was sitting in sixth place. She would have to beat Johnson, the United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer, by six pins to make the TV show.

Gawlik had a chance to strike out in the final frame for the win but missed on her second shot. Johnson then doubled and got nine on her final shot to remain ahead of Gawlik, despite a tie at 232.

“I tried to do what I could,” Gawlik said. “I can’t believe I even got this far. I bowled with Hui and she was killing it all week, and I really was not expecting to come this close. And then to bowl Liz Johnson – I mean, we tied.”

Competitors at the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open bowled 24 qualifying games over three days before the field was cut to the top 47 for an additional eight games. After 32 games, the top 24 advanced to three rounds of match play to determine the five finalists for Sunday’s stepladder, based on the 56-game pinfall totals, including 30 bonus pins for each match-play win.

Ng maintains lead, local standout in mix at U.S. Women’s Open

With the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open just 30 minutes away from her house, Jodi Gawlik managed to get time off to bowl in her first major event.

The Schaumburg, Illinois, resident has taken full advantage of the opportunity, making the top 24 for match play, and then winning her first six matches Friday at Stardust Bowl in Addison.

Despite dropping her final two matches of the evening, Gawlik will head into Saturday’s final two rounds of match play in sixth place.

Shayna Ng of Singapore leads the field with an 8,523 pinfall total through 40 games. She started the day with a 25-pin lead, was in fifth place and 173 pins back after the final eight games of qualifying and went 7-1 in match play to build an 85-pin lead over Colombia native Rocio Restrepo.

Jodi Woessner of Oregon, Ohio, is in third place at 8,332, followed by Singapore bowlers New Hui Fen (8,300) and Jazreel Tan (8,294).

Gawlik bowled collegiately at McKendree University, graduating in 2015, and has competed in a couple of Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour events. She was 13th at the PWBA Greater Detroit Open this year and 18th at the PWBA Minnesota Open in 2015.

“It’s pretty crazy, I just bowled Liz Johnson and Kelly Kulick,” Gawlik said. “It just doesn’t happen. I’ve always watched them on TV, and to be bowling in the same tournament as them, at this stage, it’s just pretty crazy.”

Gawlik’s success also might come from the fact she’s become pretty familiar with Stardust Bowl. She competed in a Sport league at the center the last three Thursdays, and then won the Estrogen Open Scratch Women’s Bowling Tournament, an eight-game tournament held Sunday at Stardust Bowl.

Of course, the conditions for the U.S. Women’s Open are a little different.

“Night and day,” Gawlik said of the difference. “These are so touchy. Ball choices are super important, and I’m not sponsored, so I don’t have a ball rep helping me. My friend who works in the pro shop here has been helping me, and my mom has been helping, too. It’s kind of cool thinking I almost got here by myself.”

After the final eight games of qualifying Friday, New held the lead after posting a block-high 1,728 pinfall total to reach 6,700. She would take a 108-pin lead over Restrepo into match play.

New said she got lucky with a ball choice, saying she just took a “big shiny ball out of the ball bag” and went with it.

“It’s tough because every day is different, even on the fresh,” New said. “You have to play around with your release a lot, and speed control is really important. I think people with more ball speed tend to do well here. But, I guess things worked out today.”

Allie Ijams also made a big move on Friday morning, shooting 1,541 for her first seven games before a 147 finale dropped her back.

“I can’t say third time’s a charm since it’s Day 4,” Ijams said. “I just felt I had a way better game plan today, and it wasn’t about shooting 240s, it was about shooting 180, 190 and catch the 220s when you can. Then, my 220s turned into 240s, and that was cool.”

The 2016 U.S. Women’s Open continues Saturday with the final two eight-game blocks of round-robin match play to determine the five finalists for Sunday’s stepladder, which will be televised live on CBS Sports Network at noon Eastern.

Veteran Hulsenberg makes big move at 2016 U.S. Women’s Open

Having endured the grueling format of a U.S. Women’s Open on more than a few occasions, Leanne Hulsenberg knows the importance of not getting too high or too low.

In Thursday’s third round of qualifying at the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open, Hulsenberg, of Pleasant View, Utah, leaned on her experience to produce the second-highest block of the day at Stardust Bowl, moving up 22 spots into a tie for sixth place at the season’s third major.

Indonesia’s Tannya Roumimper held a slim lead over Singapore’s Shayna Ng most of the day but saw it slip away after a 164 effort in the final game. Ng leads with a 5,013 pinfall total for the 24 games and is followed by Roumimper at 4,988 and Colombia native Rocio Restrepo in third place at 4,977.

Singapore’s Hui Fen New, who has made two TV shows this season, is fourth at 4,972, while first-round leader Amanda Greene of Romney, West Virginia, is fifth at 4,953.

Hulsenberg shares the sixth spot, along with Jodi Woessner of Oregon Ohio.

“The first three days have been like three different shots, and I don’t think anyone has thrown the same ball or played the same angle, or been doing the same thing each day,” said Hulsenberg, who won the 2011 title when the finals were held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. “I love the U.S. Open. I would bowl the U.S. Open every week if I could. But, we’re not even halfway there.”

Hulsenberg shot 242 to close out her day, using her fourth ball of the day.

“The lanes were different, but in a good way for me,” said Hulsenberg, a 2008 United States Bowling Congress Hall of Fame inductee. “I think my many years of experience in the U.S. Open have helped me stay on a pretty even keel. I knew I had a good shot so I really, really, really tried to focus because I thought this might not be here tomorrow, and I tried to get everything I could tonight.”

The high block of the day belonged to Colombia native Rocio Restrepo, who had a 1,737 pinfall total for the eight games to move into third place. She easily would have been in the top 10 after Wednesday, except her final game was a 137 that dropped her to 18th. It also made her more determined going into Thursday’s round.

“That’s not the way you want to finish a block,” Restrepo said. “But, it really helped me today to actually focus more and not take for granted some of the shots. Yesterday, when I had the opportunity to run big games, I actually ended up shooting 200s or 210s because I didn’t strike out, so I made sure today to take my time. Today, I was determined to make a run and bowl my butt off.”

The 142-player field was cut to the top third at the end of Thursday’s qualifying round, and one of the final spots went to Shannon O’Keefe of O’Fallon, Illinois.

O’Keefe has won two individual titles this year and last week at the PBA/PWBA Striking against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles, she teamed with Professional Bowlers Association star Bill O’Neill to win the title for the second consecutive year.

Heading into the U.S. Women’s Open, she came down with cold-like symptoms and didn’t even know if she would be able to make it through the 24 games of qualifying. She knew that as physically demanding it would be, it also would be a mental test.

“For me, making the cut today adds to my level of confidence because it shows I never really count myself out of it,” said O’Keefe, the runner-up at the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open. “I had a really rough day or two but came out and did the best I could. I went plus-13 today, but I feel like I bowled much better. I figured out something physically, and it really helped. Bowling all summer, week in and week out, has helped me see those little things sooner.”

The U.S. Women’s Open continues Friday with eight additional qualifying games before the field is cut to the top 24 for round-robin match play to determine the five finalists for Sunday’s stepladder, which will be televised live on CBS Sports Network at noon Eastern.

Hall of Famer Brian Voss Wins Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic For First Career PBA50 Tour Title

Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Brian Voss of Centennial, Colo., a 25-time winner on the PBA Tour, won the PBA50 Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic presented by Roto Grip Wednesday for his first win on the tour for players 50 and older.

Voss defeated United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer and top seed Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., 222-206, in the championship match to hand Boresch his second runner-up finish in a row after losing in last week’s PBA50 South Shore Open title match to Pete Weber who won his record sixth title of the season.

“I get old but winning never gets old as the saying goes,” said Voss, who turns 58 Thursday. “This game takes a lot to win. There’s so much to think about and there’s not one moment that I’m not working thinking about what I need to do on every shot.”

In a relatively close match, Voss held a seven pin lead in the seventh frame but then threw a double in the eighth and ninth to prevent a comeback by Boresch, who was trying for his third career PBA50 Tour title and his first since 2013. Voss also picked up a rare 3-4-6-7-10 split in the third frame which helped him stay in front early in the match.

“I take pride in making a lot of the splits I leave,” said Voss, who is also a member of the USBC Hall of Fame. “Whether it takes one shot or two you just have to believe that you can knock them all down. You have to think you can always make it.”

Voss’ previous best PBA50 Tour finish was second in the 2009 Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open.

“To be honest, every year that goes by you never know.” Voss said. “It starts to wear on you especially this year because I’ve been in the top 10 pretty consistently. In a strange way, now that it’s over with it kind of seemed easy.”

In the opening stepladder match, PBA50 Tour rookie Brian Kretzer of Dayton, Ohio beat two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, 243-213, and then went on to beat Hall of Famer and four-time PBA50 Player of the Year Tom Baker of King, N.C., 279-211, in the second match. In the semifinal match Voss defeated Kretzer 240-222 to advance to the title match.

The PBA50 Tour travels to Fort Wayne, Ind. for the DeHayes Insurance Group Championship presented by Pro Bowl West and Ebonite Aug. 6-9 and the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by Hammer, Aug. 11-13 both at Pro Bowl West.

The season wraps up with the PBA50 National Championship presented by Riley Hospital for Children Aug. 14-17 at Signature Lanes in Elkhart, Ind.

Fans can catch all the action live on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame. Monthly subscriptions are $7.99; 3-day passes are $3.99 and a yearly subscription is available for the equivalent of $1.25 per week.

Barnes back in rhythm, Greene leads at U.S. Women’s Open

Diandra Asbaty is making herself right at home at this week’s U.S. Women’s Open.

The Chicago resident remained consistent on Wednesday during the second day of qualifying at Stardust Bowl in Addison, Illinois, and while Indonesia’s Tannya Roumimper leads with a two-day pinfall total of 3,422, followed Singapore’s Shayna Ng at 3,362, Asbaty kept pace and sits in third at 3,355.

First-round leader Amanda Greene of Romney, West Virginia, and Hui Fen New of Singapore are tied for fourth 3,346.

Asbaty spent Wednesday morning getting her kids dressed and had to head out right after her qualifying round to pick them up from school. She said the day felt like a normal day.

“I just feel comfortable and I don’t know if it’s because I can sleep in my own bed and go home to my kids,” Asbaty said. “It’s hard being on the road with the responsibilities. Even though I still have responsibilities because I’m home, it just feels a little different. I just hope the feeling lasts throughout week, I can make good shots, good moves and keep moving up.”

Asbaty is coming off a second-place finish at the PBA/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles in Houston. She teamed with Jason Belmonte and said she was able to work out a couple of things in her game and came out of the event feeling sharper.

She also came into the U.S. Women’s Open with a specific game plan, knowing if she just puts together a few doubles then she can shoot 220s. That mentality keeps her more at ease.

“I’m a good example that you don’t really need to shoot 250s, 260s,” Asbaty said. “I’ve just been consistent for two days and hopefully that continues.”

Roumimper recently returned to the United States after bowling in Korea and Hong Kong, where she finished third at the Hong Kong Open.

“I’ve been working so hard on my mental game lately,” she said. “We still have eight games tomorrow, so I just want to be in my zone when I bowl in those eight games, just focus and bowl – don’t think ahead, or think what happened before.”

The U.S. Women’s Open continues Thursday with the third and final eight-game qualifying block before the field is cut to the top third for eight more games on Friday. After 32 games, the top 24 will advance to round-robin match play to determine the five finalists for Sunday’s stepladder that will be televised live on CBS Sports Network at 11 a.m. Eastern.

Barnes back in rhythm, Greene leads at U.S. Women’s Open

Lynda Barnes admitted to being a little grumpy after completing the first squad of the day at the U.S. Women’s Open at Stardust Bowl.

Through the first six games of the eight-game block on Tuesday, Barnes was 62 pins on the plus side and sitting near the top of the leaderboard. But back-to-back games in the 180s dropped the United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer back a few spots. By the time the second squad would finish on Tuesday evening, Barnes would be in 24th place.

There will be 16 more qualifying games to bowl over the next two days before the first cut is made, but the Double Oak, Texas, resident was bothered because she felt she could have knocked down a few more pins in the opening round of qualifying.

“That’s probably the best I’ve bowled this whole season, as far as rhythm and being patient, and then I got a little lost there,” she said about her finish on Tuesday. “It happens, it’s the U.S. Open. (The lanes) are always hard, which is good, and there’s lots of games left. But it’s one of those things that you know they are hard, so you want to dig in little bit more because it’s so easy to give up pins with this field … so, I’m happy but there’s more work to be done.”

An 11-time member of Team USA, Barnes twice has won the USBC Queens and knows in the longer-format tournaments there will be tough games to grind through and games when you need to take advantage of a favorable pair of lanes.

“I felt like I left a couple (of bigger games) behind on a couple of pairs that I had a really good look early,” Barnes said. “That’s where the frustration comes in, when you have a little something and don’t take full advantage of it. But there’s a lot of games (to go), I just have to be a little more patient.”

Bowling on the second of the two squads on Tuesday, Amanda Greene of Romney, West Virginia, averaged 227 for a 1,818 pinfall total and holds a 32-pin lead over three-time U.S. Women’s Open winner Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey.

Seven of the top eight bowlers came from the second squad, which bowled on the burn as the lanes were not oiled between squads.

“I got to play my ‘A’ game – I like to get inside and hook it, and I always seem to do well when I can move left and hook the lane,” Greene said. “The scores today for the fresh were lower than the burn squad, so I will need to come in with a new game plan. I’m obviously not going to be able to play them like I did today. So we’ll see how it goes.”

Indonesia’s Tannya Roumimper is third with a 1,763 pinfall total followed by Shayna Ng of Singapore at 1,759, and Valerie Calberry of Derry, New Hampshire, and three-time Junior Team USA member Sydney Brummett of Fort Wayne, Indiana, each at 1,727.

Ng was the lone bowler from the opening squad to break into the top eight.

“Usually, I’m not good on the fresh,” Ng said. “Every strike is like a bonus to me, and if not, I just pick up my spares. The scores are not really high, so spares are very important.”

Now, both Ng and Barnes will turn their attention to the second round of qualifying, which for them will be on the burn.

Barnes said she has spent the last few weeks working on her game. She said watching the rev rates, and the different way today’s players attack the lanes, she “got trapped a lot and started throwing it really bad.”

“My goal the last two or three weeks was just to relax and bowl, get my rhythm back, and then match up to the lanes,” Barnes said. “When I stop learning, I stop bowling.”

The U.S. Women’s Open continues Wednesday with eight more qualifying games. All competitors will bowl 24 games over three days after which the field will be cut to the top third for eight more games. After 32 games, the top 24 will advance to round-robin match play to determine the five finalists for Sunday’s stepladder that will be televised live on CBS Sports Network at 11 a.m. Eastern.
