  【PBA Senior】 Dick Weber Invitational 【Final】

Eight is Great

Tom Baker

It was only fitting the 2007 PBA Senior Tour season came down to a match-up between PBA Hall of Famers Tom Baker and David Ozio.

After running neck and neck throughout the course of the season, the friends and rivals met in the title match of the season-ending PBA Senior Dick Weber Invitational, with the PBA Senior Player of the Year award hanging in the balance.

After months of taking turns as the front-runner for the award, it was Baker who once again came out on top, possibly securing a record third consecutive PBA Senior Player of the Year award with a 256-213 win over Ozio in a match that was much closer than the final score indicated.

While Baker came into the event with two titles to Ozio's one victory in 2007, Ozio may have held the slight edge over Baker, leading the PBA Senior Point Rankings and advancing to the championship round in seven of 12 events coming in.

But Baker earned the top seed for match play Sunday, then compiled a 16-8 record in match play - including a 7-1 record in the final eight games Tuesday morning - to earn the top seed for the stepladder finals.

Ozio settled for the No. 4 seed, then worked his way up the ladder by knocking off No. 5 seed Bob Brady, 237-211, No. 3 seed Keith Sharp, 235-169, and No. 2 seed Hugh Miller, 201-175. He looked destined to charge past Baker for his first career PBA Senior Player of the Year award.

With the momentum on his side, Ozio started the title match with a nine-spare, then rattled off three consecutive strikes while Baker left three consecutive 10-pins in the second, third and fourth frames, and it looked like Ozio might run away with the match.

The tide quickly turned, however, as Ozio struggled over the next four frames with an eight-spare and three consecutive nine spares. Baker made a quick adjustment which led to seven consecutive strikes. In mere minutes, the match - and perhaps the end-of-the-year hardware - had gone to Baker.

"He bowled great all year," Baker said of Ozio. "When it comes down to the matches between us it's just a matter of who carries. I made a little move after I left those 10-pins. I got a break on a strike in the fifth frame where I wanted the shot to be lighter and it was a little too light so I just said at that point I have to make a move.
"Sometimes you have to take a risk and I forced myself to do it and it paid off."

The win was Baker's eighth PBA Senior Tour title in just three seasons, putting him into a tie for seventh on the all-time list. Should the voting sway his way, he would become the first bowler in history to win three consecutive PBA Senior Player of the Year awards.

"It would be awesome," Baker (King, N.C.) said. "David has been pushing me all year. To do it three times in a row really would say something."

Baker earned $9,000 for the win, while Ozio (Beaumont, Texas) took home $5,000 for his third runner-up finish of the season.

The inaugural PBA Senior Dick Weber Invitational also awarded a spot in the 2008 H&R Block Tournament of Champions, one of four Majors on the Denny's PBA Tour, but Baker was already eligible due to his 2007 USBC Senior Masters win earlier in the summer. The spot will now go to a past Denny's PBA Tour champion.

  【PBA】 Women's Tour Trials 【Final】

Sweet Sixteen

Michelle Feldman

For Michelle Feldman, the thought of additional women's bowling events is always on her mind. With the addition of this fall's PBA Women's Series, Feldman's wish is becoming a reality.

Feldman will lead 15 other competitors who qualified for the series with their finish in the 2007 PBA Women's Tour Trials, which were being held in conjunction with the 2007 U.S. Women's Open, a United States Bowling Congress (USBC) event.

Feldman (Skaneateles, N.Y.) led the field, who bowled 32 games over four days on four different PBA oil patterns, with a 32-game pinfall of 6,790.

"It was nice to make it and now I hope to win at least two times in the four weeks (on the PBA Women's Series)," said Feldman. "Hopefully these events lead to something more substantial next year and the year after. Not just four weeks, but something on our own further down the road."

Feldman, who entered Thursday's final round on the Chameleon oil pattern in third, posted an eight-game pinfall of 1,669, with five games over the 200 mark including a high of 234 in her sixth game.

"It was a challenging pattern, all the patterns are challenging. I'm not able to bowl day in and day out on these patterns like the exempt bowlers. Really the only time I get to bowl on these shots are in my PBA experience league," added Feldman.

Kelly Kulick, who lead Tuesday and Wednesday's rounds, finished second with 6,780. Kulick (Union, N.J.), who made history last year as the first-ever exempt female bowler on the Denny's PBA Tour, posted an eight-game block of 1,537.

Karen Stroud of Victoria, Texas finished third with 6,778 after posting the day's high score of 1,840. Stroud capped the block with a 290 in game eight along with scores of 258 and 243 in games two and five, respectively.

Carolyn Dorin-Ballard (North Richland Hills, Texas) and Shannon Pluhowsky (Phoenix, Ariz.) rounded out the top four, tied with 6,777.

Monday's leader Stefanie Nation (Orlando, Fla.) finished seventh with 6,678.

The 2007 PBA Women's Series, which is sponsored by the USBC, marks the first opportunity for women to bowl on Tour since the Professional Women's Bowling Association (PWBA) folded in 2003. The series will feature 16 women competing in four events which will run concurrently with four Denny's PBA Tour events. All events will feature a $51,100 prize fund including a $10,000 top prize.

  【PBA】 Women's Tour Trials 【Round 3】

Kulick Survives Shark Attack

Kelly Kulick

The common observation Tuesday evening at the 2007 PBA Women's Tour Trials was that Wednesday's Shark oil pattern would separate the field and more clearly distinguish the top bowlers at the National Bowling Stadium.

That observation held true to form as Kelly Kulick, who made history last season as the first-ever exempt female bowler on the Denny's PBA Tour, continued her stronghold on the field, leading for the second consecutive day with a three-day, 24-game pinfall of 5,243.

Kulick (Jackson, N.J.) posted an eight-game pinfall of 1,734 in the third round of competition at the Tour Trials, which are being held in conjunction with the 2007 U.S. Women's Open, a United States Bowling Congress (USBC) event.

"I didn't take a lot of risks and generally played smart today," said Kulick, who said Tuesday she planned to play it safe on the Shark pattern. "Every time I wanted to make a ball change, I held off and I was able to keep going at a good pace. My spare game was great until the final game. I didn't miss a single spare in the first seven games and that's key on a pattern like this."

Kulick opened the block with four consecutive scores over 215, dropped to 196 in the fifth before rebounding with scores of 269 and 225 in games six and seven. Kulick closed the round with her lowest score of the day, 160.

Tied for second, 122 pins behind Kulick, are Wendy Macpherson (Henderson, Nev.) and Michelle Feldman (Skaneateles, N.Y.) with 5,121. Macpherson posted the day's highest eight-game block with 1,800.

Shannon Pluhowsky (Phoenix, Ariz.) is fourth after posting 1,692 on Wednesday for a 24-game pinfall of 5,108.

Monday's leader Stefanie Nation (Orlando, Fla.) is sixth with 5,013.

  【PBA Senior】 Decatur Open 【Final】

Croucher Wins First in Roll-Off

Kevin Croucher

It took two extra frames, but Kevin Croucher finally came away with his first career PBA Senior Tour title.

Croucher won a sudden death roll-off, 20-18, over Gary Smith after the two tied at 227 through 10 frames Tuesday to win the 2007 PBA Senior Decatur Open at Spare Time Lanes.

Smith came into the match on fire, averaging 279.67 in his previous three games in the Round of 8 and Round of 4, but he cooled off enough for Croucher to pull even with him with three clutch strikes in the 10th frame.

Croucher then started the one-ball, sudden death roll-off with a strike, which Smith matched. On the second ball, Croucher struck again while Smith left the 6- and 10-pins, giving Croucher the win.

"I've played a lot of sports my whole life and they all pertain to staying calm," Croucher said. "After a while you get used to it and that's the fun part. The fun part is having to throw shots in that situation and perform under pressure. That's when you find out how good you are."

Croucher was good enough to knock off Smith, who swept his best-of-three match in the Round of 8 with wins of 276-243 and 279-210 over Keith Sharp (Orlando, Fla.). Smith then overcame PBA Hall of Famer David Ozio (Beaumont, Texas) in a semifinal shootout in which both bowlers struck with their first nine shots and seemed destined for the first 300-300 tie in PBA Senior Tour history. Ozio left a 10-pin with his first shot in the 10th, however, and Smith struck once in the 10th for the win.

Croucher, meanwhile, had to overcome Bob Kelly (Dayton, Ohio) in the Round of 8, winning the final two games for a 2-1 win. It was a small measure of revenge for Croucher, who was edged in the 2006 PBA Senior Rookie of the Year voting by Kelly last season.

After knocking off 10-time PBA Senior Tour titlist Dale Eagle in the semifinals, 231-180, Croucher took the lead early in the title match, until back-to-back spares in the fifth and sixth frames. Smith, meanwhile, struck four consecutive times to take the lead and looked like he might cruise to his first career PBA Senior Tour title.

Smith (E. Peoria, Ill.) needed a strike with is first ball in the 10th to shut Croucher out, but a nine-spare gave the Grants Pass, Ore., resident an opening. He took it by striking all three times in the 10th to send the match to a roll-off.

"I made one bad shot in the match but then he gave me a window. You look forward to getting that window out here but when it comes up you have to remain calm," Croucher said. "I wasn't thinking about anything other than making a good shot. Once we tied I knew I could start on the lane I finished on. I threw it a little light but luckily it carried."

Croucher earned $8,000 for the win while Smith took home $4,500 for second. Ozio and Eagle earned $3,000 each for third and fourth.

Next week the PBA Senior Tour wraps up with the PBA Senior Dick Weber Invitational, Aug. 17-21 at West County Lanes in Ballwin, Mo. The winner will take home $9,000 and a berth in the 2008 H&R Block Tournament of Champions, one of four Majors on the Denny's PBA Tour.

 

  【PBA】 Women's Tour Trials 【Round 2】

Kulick Tames the Scorpion

Kelly Kulick

After getting a taste for the Denny's PBA Tour as the first-ever exempt female bowler, Kelly Kulick has the desire to return to the top and is positioning herself to do so as the leader in the 2007 PBA Women's Tour Trials, which are being held in conjunction with the 2007 U.S. Women's Open, a United States Bowling Congress (USBC) event, at the National Bowling Stadium.

The Tour Trials, which grant exemptions to the top 16 women for this fall's PBA Women's Series, feature a field of 65 women with Kulick leading the way with a two-day, 16-game pinfall of 3,509.

Kulick (Union, N.J.) opened the day with a 225 and after dropping a 169 in the second game, caught fire. Kulick averaged 258.25 over the next four games including a 289 in game six and finished with the day's top round, an eight-game pinfall of 1,804, on the Scorpion oil pattern.

"On Tour, this pattern was probably my worst. I drilled a new ball and it seemed to match up well for me today," said Kulick. "From being out on the Denny's Tour, I have an idea of how all the patterns play. I've also had a solid year of practice and my game is sharp right now and it showed at the USBC Queens."

In second is Michelle Feldman (Skaneateles, N.Y.), who posted 1,786 on Tuesday, for a 16-game pinfall of 3,485. Feldman led heading into the eighth and final game, but a 7-10 split in the eighth frame gave Kulick the lead.

Carolyn Dorin-Ballard (North Richland Hills, Texas) rounds out the top three with 3,447 after posting 1,697 on Tuesday.

Monday's leader Stefanie Nation (Orlando, Fla.) is 10th with 3,320.

  【PBA】 Women's Tour Trials 【Round 1】

Nation's Best

Stefanie Nation

After being named the Player of the Year in the 2006 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Intercollegiate Championships, Stefanie Nation is hardly an unknown in the world of women's bowling.

Nation leads the field with an eight-game pinfall of 1,774 on the PBA Viper oil pattern in the 2007 PBA Women's Tour Trials, which is being held in conjunction with the 2007 U.S. Women's Open, a USBC event, at the National Bowling Stadium.

"When we lay this pattern down back home, it's easier for me," said Nation (Orlando, Fla.). "Today it didn't play the same for me. I had to throw a ball with surface. I was using a Blast Zone which I've only used for a couple of weeks, so I'm still getting a good feel for it. I was able to throw some great shots and I got rewarded. It's nice to have a good start in any tournament and not come from behind."

Nation opened and closed the block with her two lowest scores of the day, 187 and 154, respectively. The two scores were the only two games under 200 for Nation as the Team USA member averaged 238.83 over games 2-7, including a 269 in game five.

Karen Stroud (Victoria, Texas) is Nation's closest competition, coming in second, 17 pins behind with 1,757. Stroud opened the day with her two highest scores of 256 and 234.

Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, a 20-time winner on the defunct Professional Women's Bowling Association (PWBA) Tour, is third with 1,750. Dorin-Ballard (North Richland Hills, Texas) stayed above 200 in every game including a high game of 236 in her fifth game.

Kelly Kulick (Union, N.J.), who made history as the first-ever exempt female bowler on the Denny's PBA Tour, is fourth with 1,705.

The entire field will return Tuesday for the second of four eight-game blocks, bowling on the Scorpion oil pattern beginning at 10 a.m. PT. The top 16 women after Thursday's fourth round, based on a 32-game pinfall, and who have paid the additional PBA Women's Tour Trials entry fee will earn exemptions for the 2007 PBA Women's Series.

The 2007 PBA Women's Series, which is sponsored by the USBC, marks the first opportunity for women to bowl on Tour since the PWBA folded in 2003. The series will feature 16 women competing in four events which will run concurrently with four Denny's PBA Tour events. All events will feature a $51,100 prize fund including a $10,000 top prize.

 【PBA Senior】 Lake County Open 【Final】

Sylvia's Second is Sweet

Don Sylvia

Don Sylvia waited a long time for his second PBA Senior Tour title, but it was well worth the wait.

Sylvia captured his first title since his rookie season in 2003, defeating Roger LeClair, 226-211, in the title match of the 2007 PBA Senior Lake County Open Thursday at Olympia Lanes.

The 2003 PBA Senior Rookie of the Year qualified 21st after 16 games and had to bowl five matches to get the title match while LeClair, who qualified third, had to win just three.

The day, like the four years since his last title, wasn't easy for Sylvia, who after sweeping his best-of-five Round of 32 match, three-games-to-none, had to come from behind in his next two matches to win. He fell in an 0-2 hole to No. 12 Mark Jones in the Round of 24 before bouncing back to win the final three games, then lost the first game to No. 5 Michael Henry in the Round of 16 before winning three in a row again.

Sylvia had an easier time in the best-of-three Round of 8, sweeping Bob Chamberlain, 2-0, then knocked off his roommate Henry Gonzalez, 210-192, in the one-game semifinal to reach the title match.

The 54-year-old jumped out to an early lead against LeClair, who opened in the second, but Sylvia opened in the fourth to give LeClair the lead. Sylvia responded with five consecutive strikes, while LeClair was burned by a ringing 10-pin in the eighth frame after a double. The Discovery Bay, Calif., resident wrapped up the title with a nine-spare in the 10th frame.

"I've been waiting so long for this," Sylvia said. "The first title is always great. I came out my rookie year and was very fortunate to win, but believe me the second one is much tougher. The second one proves I really do belong out here. This is just a taste of honey."

Sylvia, who dedicated the win to his late father who passed away two years ago, took home $8,000 for the win.

The win was particularly painful for LeClair (Clackamas, Ore.), who again came up just short in his quest for his first career PBA Senior Tour title. The 2005 PBA Senior Rookie of the Year runner-up to PBA Hall of Famer Tom Baker, LeClair also finished second at Olympia Lanes two years ago.

LeClair took home $4,500 for second, while Gonzalez (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Gary Smith (E. Peoria, Ill.) took home $3,000 for third and fourth.

 【PBA Senior】 Council Bluffs Open 【Final】

Patchen Takes Home First Title

Dave Patchen

Dave Patchen used a little karmic retribution Thursday to take home his first career PBA Senior Tour title.

After throwing a perfect shot in the ninth frame and leaving a stone 9-pin when a strike would have given him the lead, Patchen watched as Henry Gonzalez left a 2-10 split and opened in the 10th frame needing only a mark to win, giving Patchen a 202-196 win in the title match of the 2007 PBA Senior Council Bluffs Open at Thunderbowl.
The 53-year-old was moved to tears by winning his first title, which didn't come easy on Thursday.

Patchen needed a 279 in the final game of his best-of-three-games Round of 8 match to beat 10-time PBA Senior Tour titlist Dale Eagle, who came in on a three-match winning streak. He then had to double in the 10th frame against PBA Hall of Famer David Ozio in the semifinals to squeak by with a 245-242 win.

In the title match, it looked like Gonzalez might run away with his third PBA Senior Tour title when Patchen split and opened in the third frame, but Gonzalez was unable to capitalize, and Patchen was able to stay within five pins of Gonzalez until the ninth frame. After Gonzalez left the 3-6-10 and converted, Patchen had a chance to take the lead with a strike, but the 9-pin meant Gonzalez only needed a mark to win.

"That shot in the ninth frame was the best ball I threw all day and it just didn't go down," Patchen (Oregon, Ohio) said. "I told (roommate) Tim (Kauble) 'if it's meant to be, it's meant to be. If not, that's the way it is.' When he left that split it was just total shock. I was about ready to cry. I'm just so happy I get a banner."

Patchen credits his win against Ozio, in which he overcame a 7-10 split in the sixth frame, for giving him the confidence he needed in the title match.

"That match against Ozio was my toughest match. This is the fourth time I've bowled him this year and I always bowl well against him but he always seems to get me," Patchen, who used a Roto Grip Mystic the entire tournament, said. "I figured if I could get past him I'd have a chance."

"I was really nervous against Ozio but I wasn't nervous in the championship. I felt really comfortable. I guess I figured if I left a 7-10 split (Gonzalez) could leave one too, but I really didn't think he'd leave that split. My heart is still pounding. This is one of the best days of my life."

Patchen earned $8,000 for the win, while Gonzalez (Colorado Springs, Colo.) took home $4,500. Ozio (Beaumont, Texas) and Jerry Swank (Chouteau, Okla.), who Gonzalez beat, 230-213, earned $3,000 each for third and fourth, respectively.
