  【PBA】 Spartanburg Classic 【Final】

Not Ready to Pass the Torch

Parker Bohn III

Rhino Page may be carrying the torch for left-handed bowlers and the next generation of stars on the Denny's PBA Tour for years to come, but PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III showed Sunday that at 44 years old, he's still the man among the lefties.

Bohn captured his 31st career Denny's PBA Tour title, defeating the rookie Page, 267-257, to win the 2007 Spartanburg Classic at Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium.

In a thrilling title match, the 24-year-old Page, making his second career championship round appearance compared to Bohn's 103, had a chance to win the match with a double and nine pins in the 10th frame. Page had trailed early, but he struck six consecutive times to rally and put himself in a position to win.

Bohn had started the match with six strikes and looked like he may become the first bowler to fire two perfect games on TV in his career, but he had back-to-back nine spares in the seventh and eight frames while Page was making his comeback.

Bohn recovered with three strikes in a row in the ninth and 10th frames and finished with 267, forcing Page to double. After a strike with his first shot in the 10th and with the crowd chanting his name, Page got up and looked to win his first title with a strike and nine, but he left the 6- and 9-pins giving Bohn the victory.

"I hope my next win takes about one tenth of the time it took me to get to this one," Bohn, who went a career-long 61 events between his 30th and 31st titles, said. "It's been about 60 weeks and that's way too long. I like it to be about two or three weeks between wins."

Bohn's win puts him three titles shy of Mark Roth and Pete Weber for third all-time. His last win came in the 2005 El Paso Classic nearly three years ago, and he came into the finals winless in his last 10 championship rounds.

One of five left-handed bowlers in the finals, Bohn has helped mentor his fellow left-hander Page, a Team USA member who has taken the Tour by storm. A non-exempt bowler, he's advanced through the Denny's PBA Tour Qualifying Round six times in seven tries and Sunday became the first bowler to advance to two championship rounds after qualifying through the TQR.

"I told Rhino this summer, 'you're a young gun and there's no way you shouldn't be on Tour,'" Bohn (Jackson, N.J.) said. "He's perked up everyone's ears and shown that he's a great player and he's here to stay. He didn't back down at all today. Fortunately for me I bowled my best game in the title match. But I guarantee he will be back."

Bohn advanced to the title match with a 227-214 win over No. 2 Patrick Allen. Allen was looking to win back-to-back titles for the second time in his career, but the 10-time titlist had trouble carrying, leaving four 7-pins. Bohn used three doubles in the match, including one in the ninth and 10th frames, to seal the win.

The No. 3 seed Bohn won the first of his three matches against the 2006-07 PBA Rookie of the Year Billy Oatman, 239-213. Oatman opened twice in the match and was ultimately undone by a failed single-pin conversion in the seventh frame, the same thing that cost his opponent, Mike Scroggins, in the first match. Bohn stayed clean the entire match and wrapped it up with a strike on his first ball in the 10th.

Oatman defeated No. 4 Scroggins, 209-207. Scroggins had a chance to take the lead with a strike in the seventh frame but he left a 7-pin and then made matters worse when he missed the conversion. It was the second time this season a missed single-pin cost him a match and it's a problem that has plagued him throughout what is now an eight-match losing streak on television, two shy of tying the PBA record for consecutive losses.

Oatman threatened to give the lead right back when he left the 2-4-6-7-10 split in the ninth frame, but he picked up the "Greek Church" to all but wrap up the match. After Scroggins, struck out to finish with 207, Oatman this time left the 3-7-9 in the 10th, but he just needed one pin to win the match, and he picked up two to advance.

Bohn took home $25,000 for the win and an exemption for the 2008-09 season, while Page (Topeka, Kan.) earned $13,000 for second. Allen (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) took home $6,500 for third, Oatman (Chicago) earned $5,500 for fourth while Scroggins (Amarillo, Texas) earned $5,000 for fifth.

  【PBA】 Spartanburg Classic 【Round Robin】

Charging Toward History

Rhino Page

With each passing week on the Denny's PBA Tour, Rhino Page racks up another PBA record.

This week, the non-exempt Page earned the No. 1 seed for Sunday's championship round of the 2007 Spartanburg Classic, becoming the first bowler in history to advance to the finals twice after qualifying through the Denny's PBA Tour Qualifying Round. The 24-year-old led the field with an 8,025 32-game pinfall and a 12-6 match play record, earning an automatic berth in the title match of Sunday's stepladder finals.

Last week, Page became the seventh non-exempt bowler in history to accomplish the feat and this week he led the event from start to finish, becoming the first bowler to do it twice. On Sunday, he'll look to become the third ever to win a title after advancing through the Wednesday Qualifying Round.

"It's overwhelming," Page (Topeka, Kan.) said. "The history part of it is nice, but it's great to get back to the show so soon after last week. More importantly, I'm in a really good position to win my first title which is what I'm out here for."

In last week's Lumber Liquidators Championship, Page earned the No. 4 seed for the stepladder finals, but fell to Mike DeVaney in his TV debut, 278-215. He bounced back this week by finishing second in Wednesday's qualifying round, the sixth time in seven weeks he's advanced through the TQR. He then led the Round of 64 on Thursday, advancing to match play for the fifth time.

Page goes into the finals ranked 12th in the PBA World Point Rankings, ahead of 47 exempt bowlers who don't have to qualify for each event, like Page does.

With an automatic berth in the title match, Page could face his mentor Patrick Allen, who earned the No. 2 seed with 7,880 and a 10-8 record. Last week, Allen (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) won his 10th career Denny's PBA Tour title. He'll look to win back-to-back titles for the second time in his career.

Parker Bohn III fired his PBA record 78th perfect game in the position round to solidify the No. 3 seed Sunday, finishing match play with a 12-6 record. The 30-time titlist and PBA Hall of Famer from Jackson, N.J., will be looking to break a 61-event winless streak, which is the longest of his career.

The all-lefty finals are rounded out by No. 4 Mike Scroggins (Amarillo, Texas), who went 9-9, and No. 5 Billy Oatman (Chicago), who went 10-8. Scroggins is looking for his first title since the 2005 United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Masters while Oatman is looking for his first career title. The 42-year-old Oatman last year became the first African-American and oldest bowler to win the PBA's Rookie of the Year award. He'll look to become just the second African-American in history to win a Denny's PBA Tour title, joining George Branham III.

Sunday's finals mark the first time since the 2001 Tar Heel Open all five bowlers are left-handed.

  【PBA】 Spartanburg Classic 【Round of 64 】

Rhino Relentless

Rhino Page

Things are going so well for Rhino Page these days, he's not only the top non-exempt bowler on the Denny's PBA Tour, he's starting to make a case for being one of the top bowlers on Tour, period.

Page led the Round of the 64 in the 2007 Spartanburg Classic at Shamrock Lanes Thursday, compiling a 3,422 14-game pinfall for a 244.43 average to take the top spot into Friday's match play.

The 24-year-old Page qualified through Wednesday's Denny's PBA Tour Qualifying Round for the sixth time in seven tries this season, three shy of tying the single-season record with eight standard events remaining. Last week, he became the seventh bowler in history to advance through the TQR and make the championship round the same week when he finished fifth in the Lumber Liquidators Championship.

The Team USA member came into this week 17th in the PBA World Point Rankings and is threatening to become the first non-exempt bowler to finish a season in the top 40 in points.

On Thursday, Page never dipped below the 200 mark, his low game a 219 in game 10. He had seven games of 247 or better, topping out at 299 in game 12. He averaged 251.57 over the final seven games to take the lead away from first-round leader Chris Barnes.

"Each squad we bowl, the lanes are a little different and tonight they were definitely different than this morning," Page (Topeka, Kan.) said. "I just need to take into consideration what I did today and make the right adjustments tomorrow morning."

Page will be making his fifth match play appearance of the season on Friday and with all pins from qualifying carrying over, he's in a good position to become the first qualifier ever to make two championship round appearances.

Finishing right behind Page were twins Mark and Mike Scroggins (Amarillo, Texas), who finished second and fourth, respectively. In the middle of the Scroggins sandwich was Chris Warren (Grants Pass, Ore.), who finished third with 3,347. Warren made last week’s Lumber Liquidators Championship final round, his first TV appearance in over 12 years.

Last week's champion Patrick Allen will look to make it back-to-back titles as he finished fifth with 3,297.
Three bowlers who hail from South Carolina made the cut to match play, led by two-time Denny's PBA Tour titlist Ritchie Allen (Columbia, S.C.), who finished 13th with 3,198. Lee Vanderhoef (Greenville, S.C.), who earned the final spot in the Round of 64 through Wednesday's TQR, finished 17th with 3,155.

The 2005-06 PBA Player of the Year and 10-time titlist Tommy Jones moved up from 38th after the first block to finish the night 19th with 3,140. Jones is looking to bounce back from an early-season slump and make his first championship round appearance of the season.

  【PBA】 Lumber Liquidators Championship 【Final】

Power of 10

Patrick Allen

Though he's still a long way from retirement, Patrick Allen may have cemented his future among the bowling elite on Sunday.

Allen defeated Wes Malott, 247-217, to win the 2007 Lumber Liquidators Championship at AMF Country Club Lanes, capturing his 10th career Denny's PBA Tour title and making himself eligible for the PBA Hall of Fame once he retires.

After joining the PBA late at the age of 29 in 1999, Allen won just one title in his first four seasons on Tour. Since then, he's become one of the top players in the game, winning the 2004-05 PBA Player of the Year award and winning multiple titles in each of the last three seasons.

On Sunday, Allen had a comfortable lead early until back-to-back nine-spares in the sixth and seventh frames. Malott could not take advantage, however, as he left the 2-8 and spared in the eighth frame and Allen responded with a double to keep his lead. Malott could have struck out in the 10th to force Allen to get the first strike, but he could only manage one strike. Allen struck with his first ball in the 10th for the win.

"I lived in this area for a few years so it means a lot to get my 10th title here and be eligible for the (PBA) Hall of Fame," Allen (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) said. "There are a lot of great bowlers out there who have won 10 tiles or more and are not in the Hall of Fame - Steve Hoskins, Del Ballard Jr., Bryan Goebel - and now I'm in that group. Just because you have 10 titles doesn't mean it's a lock you'll end up there, but it's out of my hands now."

The 37-year-old became the sixth No. 1 seed in the last seven stepladder finals to win a title following a nine-match losing streak by top seeds. Allen's last title before today came in last season's 2007 Go RVing Classic when he was also the top seed for the finals.

Allen led from start to finish this week, leading the Rd. of 64 Thursday and going 10-5-3 in match play on Friday. He doubled in the 10th frame of the final game of round robin Friday evening against Malott to clinch the No. 1 seed by a slim margin, meaning he only had to bowl one match on Sunday.

The No. 2 Malott advanced to the title match with a 236-207 win over No. 7 Mike DeVaney, who won three matches just to get to the semifinal. Malott struck five consecutive times in frames three through seven to take a commanding lead and he stayed clean the rest of the way to advance to the finals.

DeVaney advanced to the semifinal with a 221-220 win over the No. 3 seed Mike Wolfe and a 278-215 win over No. 4 Rhino Page. Page was making his first career championship round appearance and was looking to become just the third bowler in history to win a title after advancing through the Denny's PBA Tour Qualifying Round. He struggled early with three spares in the first five frames, however, while DeVaney missed just twice in the match.

The finals started with an exciting four-bowler shootout which nearly ended in a three-way tie. After Walter Ray Williams Jr. finished first with a 196, the remaining three bowlers could have all struck out to finish with 258. Chris Warren went first and struck with his first two shots, but he left a 9-pin with his final shot and finished with 257. Chris Barnes then looked to raise the bar higher, but after a strike with his first shot, the eight-time titlist left a 4-pin to finish with 248.

DeVaney saved the best for last. After opening in his first two frames of the match, DeVaney completed a string of 10 consecutive strikes by striking out in the 10th to finish with 258 and move on.

Allen took home $25,000 for the win and an exemption for the 2008-09 season, while Malott (Argyle, Texas) earned $13,000 for second. DeVaney (Temecula, Calif.) took home $6,500 for third, Wolfe (New Albany, Ind.) earned $5,500 for fourth while Page (Topeka, Kan.) earned $5,000 for fifth. Williams finished sixth, Warren seventh and Barnes eighth.

  【PBA】 Lumber Liquidators Championship 【Round Robin】

Leader of the Pack

Patrick Allen

Patrick Allen doubled in the 10th frame of the final game of match play Friday night to clinch the top seed for the championship round of the Denny's PBA Tour's Lumber Liquidators Championship at AMF Country Club Lanes.

Allen went into the position round as the No. 1 seed, but No. 2 Wes Malott still had a chance to take the top seed away. After Malott finished his game with a 248, Allen needed to double to earn enough pins to maintain his overall lead. He struck out to also finish with 248, earning the 15 pins for the tie and an automatic berth in the title match.

The nine-time titlist finished the day with a 10-5-3 match play record and an 8,019 32-game pinfall. Bowlers received 30 bonus pins for each win and 15 for each tie, which is included in the total pinfall.

The last time Allen (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) won a title was in last season's Go RVing Classic, when he was also the No. 1 seed in a stepladder final.

"Statistically it's a disadvantage," Allen said of the top seed. "The winner of that semifinal match has bowled an extra game. And top seeds haven't really fared well in the stepladder finals the last couple years. It's been better recently with Sean Rash winning the Masters, but it's one game and anything can happen on TV. I just have to make the most of it."

Allen was on top of the field after 14 games of qualifying Thursday but dropped out of the top spot Friday morning when he went just 4-3-2 in the first nine games of match play. He made a late run Friday evening with a 6-2-1 record, including games of 279 and 278 in the final two games leading into the position round.

Sunday's finals feature eight bowlers for the first time in a championship round (other than the Japan Cup) since the 2000 season. The first match will include a four-bowler shootout among No. 8 Chris Barnes, No. 7 Mike DeVaney, No. 6 Chris Warren and No. 5 Walter Ray Williams Jr.

Williams will be looking for back-to-back titles as he won last week's Great Lakes Classic for his 44th career title and second of the season. The Tour's all-time titles leader is off to the best start of his 26-year career as Sunday marks his fifth championship round appearance in the first eight events.

Barnes is making his fourth championship round this season but is still looking for his first win this season, while DeVaney is making his second TV appearance this year and will look for his first title since 2003.

Warren, meanwhile, is making his first TV appearance since the 1995 Showboat Invitational. The 12 years marks the second longest stretch between championship rounds all-time and should he win the title Sunday, Warren would set the PBA record for most years between singles titles as his last win came in the 1992 Florida Open.

The winner of the four-bowler shootout will face No. 4 Rhino Page, a non-exempt bowler who is making his first career championship round appearance. A Team USA member, Page just became a PBA member in October and has made an incredible run through the Denny's PBA Tour Qualifying Rounds, qualifying five times in six tries and making match play four times. On Sunday, the 24-year-old will look to become the third bowler to win a title after advancing trough the Tour Qualifying Round.

The winner of that match faces No. 3 Mike Wolfe, who is looking for his second win this season, while that winner will face No. 2 Malott.

  【PBA】 Lumber Liquidators Championship 【Round of 64 】

Allen Takes Top Spot

Patrick Allen

Despite a comfortable cushion in the standings, Patrick Allen knows he has a lot of work to do in match play Friday.

Allen averaged over 242 in his 14 games Thursday to lead the field with a 3,400 14-game pinfall to take the spot heading into round robin match play in the 2007 Lumber Liquidators Championship at AMF Country Club Lanes.

The nine-time Denny's PBA Tour titlist has a greater chance of making the finals this week compared to most round robin events when the top five advance to Sunday. This week features a special eight-bowler championship round which will air in primetime on ESPN at 8 p.m. EST. Nevertheless, Allen knows he can't let up on Friday as a possible 18 games still remain.

"I almost think it's a disadvantage to lead because now you have to sleep on it all night," Allen (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) said. "I have to bowl to win and not just try to hang on. I still have to be aggressive instead of thinking about just staying in the top 16 or top eight."

Allen was consistent on Thursday, particularly in the first seven-game block when five of his seven games were in the 230s and 240s. He opened the second block with back-to-back games of 257 and finished the round with a 268 to take the lead.

"I was working last night in practice on trying to get my hand behind the ball more like I used to a coupe years ago," Allen, the 2004-05 PBA Player of the Year, said. "I got off to a good start this morning and 230-240-ed them to death and then had a good start to the second block. The lanes were a little tougher (in the second block) but they broke down a lot faster."

Allen finished just ahead of all-time titles leader Walter Ray Williams Jr., who at 48 years old is off to the best start of his career. Last week, Williams captured his 44th career title and his second of the season. Williams (Ocala, Fla.) finished second with 3,366.

Mike DeVaney (Temecula, Calif.), who fired one of five 300 games on the day, finished third with 3,344 while Chris Barnes (Double Oak, Texas) was fourth with 3,311. Rhino Page, who qualified through the Denny's PBA Tour Qualifying Round on Wednesday for the fifth time in six weeks, finished fifth with 3,304.

Twin brothers Mark and Mike Scroggins (Amarillo, Texas) both finished in the top 10 as Mark was sixth with 3,299 and Mike was ninth with 3,268.

Kelly Kulick (Union, N.J.), who proved her 2006-07 season as the first-ever female exempt bowler has paid off, finished 17th with 3,212. Kulick just came off a successful four-week stint on the PBA Women's Series, a special four-event mini tour sponsored by the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) with 16 of the best female bowlers. Kulick finished third in the series point rankings.

Baltimore native and 11-time titlist Danny Wiseman advanced to match play and will look for his second career title in his hometown as he finished 22nd with 3,194.


 

2007/12/02

  【PBA】 Great Lakes Classic 【Final】

Alone at the Top

Walter Ray Williams Jr.

The debate can finally end. Walter Ray Williams Jr. officially has more professional bowling titles than anyone in the history of the sport.

Williams captured his 44th career Denny's PBA Tour title, dominating Chris Loschetter, 276-204, to win the 2007 Great Lakes Classic at Spectrum Lanes for his second title of the season.

Williams passed Earl Anthony to become the Tour's all-time titles leader in the first event of the 2006-07 season. Some said Anthony was still ahead of Williams, however, as Anthony's two USBC Masters titles are not recognized as Denny's PBA Tour titles.

At 48 years old, Williams is off to one of the best starts of his 26-year career. He has made the championship round in four of the first seven events, winning twice and finishing second once. He also holds a big lead in the PBA Player of the Year race, which if it holds up would be his record seventh Player of the Year honor, breaking another Anthony record.

On Sunday, Williams came out on fire in the title match after a close semifinal against Mike Scroggins, in which he needed to double in the 10th to win. Williams threw a perfect shot with his first ball in the 10th then caught a break with his second shot when he threw it light and tripped the bucket, advancing with a 234-226 win.

"You have to have breaks along the way any time you win out here," Williams (Ocala, Fla.) said. "You don't always get strikes when you throw it well and sometimes you get strikes when you don't throw it well. Fortunately I had a lot of good breaks this week. It was kind of silly."

What's silly is how well Williams is bowling this late in his career. The last time he won two titles this early in the season was 1998. He holds a more than 30,000 point lead in the PBA World Point Rankings, is second on Tour with $85,900 and leads the Tour in average by five pins.

He was nearly taken down by Scroggins, who held an 11-pin lead and was working on a four-bagger when he missed a 10-pin conversion in the seventh frame. Williams took the lead with a double but then gave it away when he seven-spared the ninth and Scroggins doubled in the eighth and ninth. The three-time titlist missed a chance to lock up the match, however, when he nine-spared and struck in the 10th.

Williams made sure things weren't that close in the final match against Loschetter, who was looking to become the 10th bowler to win his first career title against Williams. After a nine-spare in the first frame, Williams struck nine consecutive times to wrap up the win.

Loschetter advanced to the title match with a 239-226 win over PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III. Loschetter used a five-bagger in frames three through seven to take the lead. Bohn tried to rally late with a four-bagger but after a strike and nine-spare in the 10th, Loschetter only needed a mark to advance.

Williams earned $25,000 for his win. Loschetter (Avon, Ohio) earned $13,000 for second while Bohn (Jackson, N.J.) and Scroggins (Amarillo, Texas) took home $6,000 each for third and fourth, respectively.

 

  【PBA】 Great Lakes Classic 【Final】

Day of Destiny

Diandra Asbaty

Diandra Asbaty has won titles all over the world and accomplished more than just about any amateur bowler in history.

Now she can add a professional championship to her resume.Asbaty, who wasn't even supposed to bowl this week, defeated Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, 236-225, to win the 2007 Great Lakes Classic Sunday at Spectrum Lanes, the fourth and final PBA Women's Series event of the season.

The 27-year-old missed one of the 16 exemptions for the inaugural PBA Women's Series by just two spots when she finished 18th in the PBA Women's Tour Trials, a USBC event, this summer. As the second alternate, she caught a break this week when exempt player Wendy Macpherson withdrew and first alternate Robin Romeo injured her hand on Wednesday.

Asbaty competed in the Denny's PBA Tour Qualifying Round on Wednesday to try and earn a spot in the men's event. After missing a spot in the Round of 64, she received the call that she had an opportunity to bowl in her first PBA Women's Series event.

She took full advantage, finishing sixth in the Round of 16 to advance to match play where she defeated No. 2 seed Amy Stolz and USBC and Professional Women's Bowling Association (PWBA) Hall of Famer Tish Johnson to advance to the finals.

Against Dorin-Ballard, who won 20 times on the PWBA Tour and was looking to become the only woman to win two PBA Women's Series events, Asbaty looked shaky early after a 4-6-7 split and an open in the first frame. Dorin-Ballard, who won the very first PBA Women's Series event four weeks ago, struck five consecutive times in frames two through six to take a big lead.

The match turned in the sixth frame, however, when Dorin-Ballard had back-to-back nine spares and then left a 4-9 split and opened in the ninth frame. Asbaty had settled down by then and after a nine-spare in the fourth frame, she struck five times in a row to clinch the victory.

On top of winning her first professional event, the win was even sweeter for Asbaty (Chicago), who had her grandmother on her mind.

"My grandmother is in the hospital right now and she's the only reason I bowled this week so this is definitely for her," Asbaty said. "To beat a great champion like Carolyn makes it even better. I just can't believe it."

Asbaty pocketed $10,000 for her win while Dorin-Ballard took home $6,000. Though she came up short on Sunday, Dorin-Ballard finished the series as the leader in points, earnings and average.
