Palermaa Dominates GEICO Shark Qualifying
O'Neill Wins Top Berth for PBA World Championship

Finland's Osku Palermaa saved his best performance for last, overwhelming the Professional Bowlers Association's most difficult lane condition Friday to not only win the GEICO Shark Championship qualifying round, but almost steal the No. 1 position for January's stepladder finals in the PBA World Championship away from Bill O'Neill of Southampton, Pa., as qualifying week in the PBA World Series of Bowling ended at South Point Bowling Center.

Palermaa, Europe's premier two-handed bowler, dominated the Shark round, averaging 234 for 12 games to finish with 2,814 pins, five pins ahead of Brian Valenta of Lockport, Ill. In doing so, Palermaa came within 62 pins of overtaking O'Neill, who had led the World Championship race almost the entire week. O'Neill held on in the final round to finish the World Championship qualifying race with 13,606 pins, 63 ahead of Sean Rash of Wichita, Kan.

"(Thursday) evening wasn't good, but today the ball rolled perfect," Palermaa said. "I kept making good shots and threw strikes. I never would have seen that coming. I wouldn't have guessed I'd shoot my best on the Shark. It was tough for everyone."

Palermaa, who has made two television finals in limited PBA Tour competition, bowled in the 2009 PBA World Series of Bowling in Allen Park, Mich., with a best finish of seventh in the Motor City Open and a dismal 59th place finish in last year's Shark Championship. This year he will advance to match play in the Chameleon and GEICO Shark Championships, and he's already locked for the TV finals in the PBA World Championship.

"Last year I got homesick right away at the World Series and I just wanted to get it over with and go home," Palermaa said. "This year I want a PBA title so I can go to the Tournament of Champions (in Las Vegas in January). I don't bowl regionals in the U.S., so the only way I can go is to win one of the animal pattern titles or the PBA World Championship."

Also advancing to next Wednesday's nine-game GEICO Shark Championship match play round was reigning PBA Player of the Year Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla.; Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., the 2010 PBA Tournament of Champions winner and the only woman to qualify for a match play round, and 2009 PBA World Champion Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich. The top 16 qualifiers in the Cheetah, Viper, Chameleon and Scorpion qualifying rounds earlier in the week also will advance to match play competition when the PBA World Series resumes competition on Monday.

Based on 60 games bowled on five different lane conditions this week, the 63 cashers and eight television finalists for the PBA World Championship have been determined. Joining O'Neill in the top eight for the live ESPN/ESPN2 stepladder finals Jan. 14, 15 and 16 at South Point will be Rash; Palermaa; Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas; Mika Koivuniemi of Hartland, Mich.; Michael Haugen Jr., of Carefree, Ariz.; Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, and Jason Belmonte of Australia.

"It was a 60-game event, a grueling test of versatility," O'Neill said. "You have to be smart. You have to know why you're picking up a certain ball, what you're doing with your hand. I made all the right decisions this week, and that's why I am where I am."

O'Neill has been tagged by some experts as the next superstar in bowling, but it wasn't until last year - his fifth as a PBA Tour exempt player - that he broke through, winning his first two titles including the U.S. Open.

"I had a lot of pressure, but most of it I put on myself," he said. "I didn't care what people say. So many people bad-mouth Chris Barnes about his TV record, but they have no idea how good that guy is. The hard part is the 40-50 games to get to TV in the first place. I figured if I kept giving my chances, I'd win."

"And now life is good," O'Neill continued. "I'm bowling really well. I married a great girl in May. I won some medals with Team USA in Germany. It's been a good year."

The 60-game qualifying standings also determined the six United States and six international players who will bowl a special USA vs. The World team match on Friday, Nov. 6. U.S. qualifiers are O'Neill, Rash, Barnes, Haugen, Malott and Ronnie Russell, Marion, Ind. International team members will be Palermaa, Koivuniemi (Finland), Belmonte, Venezuela's Amleto Monacelli, Finland's Kimmo Lehtonen and Canada's Dan MacLelland.

Australia's Belmonte Leads Scorpion Qualifying Round
O'Neill Paces PBA World Championship Standings

Australian two-handed star Jason Belmonte averaged 237 for 12 games to lead the Scorpion Championship qualifying round at South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas Thursday.

Belmonte, who failed to advance to the top 16 match play rounds in the Cheetah and Viper Championship rounds earlier in the week, began to hit his strike during Wednesday's Chameleon round and kept his momentum during the fourth of five stages of the World Series Thursday, finishing with a 12-game total of 2,851 pins and a 57-pin lead over Eugene McCune of Munster, Ind.

"I was disappointed in my performance the first couple of days, but something I pride myself in is what we call 'ticker' back home. It's like heart," Belmonte said. "You can never give up. No matter how bad it seems I'm always going to try to get every pin I can because you never know what's around the corner, and today was what was around the corner."

"From where I was sitting after the first two days, I knew if I wanted to give myself a chance to make top eight (in the PBA World Championship standings) and make the World team (for the U.S.A. vs. The World special team event), it was all or nothing," Belmonte continued. "I was very aggressive with my ball choice and my lane play today. I decided I'd rather shoot 100 under playing aggressive than fail playing safe."

In winning the Scorpion stage, Belmonte moved into 20th place in the PBA World Championship standings, based upon total pinfall for the first 48 games of World Series competition. After 24 games, he was more than 400 pins out of the top eight and now is 122 pins away from the TV finals. The top eight after Friday's GEICO Shark Championship qualifying round will advance to the live ESPN/ESPN2 PBA World Championship stepladder finals Jan. 14-16 at South Point.

Bill O'Neill of Southampton, Pa., was the PBA World Championship leader with a 48-game total of 10,969 pins, 30 ahead of Sean Rash of Wichita, Kan., after finishing 13th in the Scorpion round.

O'Neill, the reigning U.S. Open champion, is the only player in the field who has qualified for next week's top 16 match play rounds in all four stages. The top 16 players in each of five "animal pattern" championships will advance to nine-game match play rounds next week, with the top five in each then advancing to stepladder finals next Friday and Saturday.

"The patterns have played pretty similar after the Cheetah," O'Neill said. "It's a matter of matching up with right ball shape. They were a little tougher tonight. I left a lot of corner pins, but it could have been a lot worse. Overall I'm happy with my performance."

"I've been bowling really well the past few months," he added. "I bowled with Team USA in Germany, and I also bowled in Asia and Europe. So I bowled a lot, but you never know if you're really mentally prepared for a grueling event like this. When you get off to a good start, it definitely helps."

The top 63 cashers in the PBA World Championship standings will be based upon 60 games bowled over five days. Friday's GEICO Shark Championship qualifying round will be the final qualifying event in the PBA World Championship.

 【PBA】 Scorpion Championship 【Qualifying Round - Block1】

Defending Champ DeVaney Takes Early Scorpion Lead as PBA World Series of Bowling Enters Day Four

Defending champion Mike DeVaney of Murrieta, Calif., averaged 247 for his first six of 12 games to take the early lead in the Scorpion Championship qualifying round at South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas Thursday.

DeVaney, who won his second Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour title in the 2009 Scorpion Championship, had 1,487 pins for a three-pin lead over Australia's two-handed star, Jason Belmonte. DeVaney rolled games of 259, 238, 259, 270, 203 and 258 in his first session Thursday. The entire 252-player field will bowl six additional games later in the day.

"This and the Shark are the lane conditioning patterns I bowl really well on," DeVaney said. "I made up some ground today, but these guys are really good. I hit a speed bump yesterday (on the Chameleon pattern), so I have to make up some ground."

DeVaney, who was in 18th place in the PBA World Championship standings after 36 games, advanced to sixth place after 42 games in the battle for the eighth and final spot for the live ESPN/ESPN2 stepladder finals for the World Championship.

Bill O'Neill of Southampton, Pa., retained his lead in the World Championship standings with a 42-game total of 9,668 pins, 32 ahead of Sean Rash of Wichita, Kan.

Malott Overcomes Timing Issues to Pace Chameleon Qualifying Round

Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, overcame his timing issues Wednesday and averaged 234.08 to the Chameleon Championship qualifying round in Wednesday’s third stage of the Professional Bowlers Association World Series of Bowling at South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas.

Malott, the 2008-09 PBA Player of the Year, finished with a 12-game total of 2,809 pins in the third of five PBA World Series of Bowling “animal pattern” stages. He also moved into eighth place in the PBA World Championship standings, based on 36 games bowled thus far in the World Series.

The top 16 players from Wednesday’s Chameleon qualifying round advance to a nine-game round-robin match play round next Tuesday. After 21 games, the top five will advance to the stepladder finals which will be conducted on Friday, Nov. 5, at South Point. Defending Chameleon champion Bill O’Neill of Southampton, Pa., qualified for match play in seventh place, his third straight top 16 finish.

After the first three stages of World Series competition, O’Neill and Michael Haugen Jr. of Carefree, Ariz., are the only players in the field of 252 who have qualified for match play on the Cheetah, Viper and Chameleon patterns. After three sessions, 38 different players have advanced to next week’s match play rounds.

Lehtonen, Koivuniemi "Finnish" One-Two in Viper Qualifying
Allen Paces PBA World Championship

Finland's Kimmo Lehtonen overtook countryman Mika Koivuniemi by a single pin Tuesday night to win the Viper Championship qualifying round the Professional Bowlers Association’s World Series of Bowling at South Point Bowling Center.

Lehtonen averaged 250 for his second six-game bloc Tuesday to slip past Koivuniemi, an eight-time PBA Tour champion. Both averaged 234 for 12 games to top the field of 16 qualifiers who will advance to the Viper Championship match play round next Monday. Lehtonen, a long-time member of Team Finland and winner of 30 international medals during a career that began in 1985, finished with 2,818 total pins to lead the second leg in the PBA World Championship.

After 24 games, the PBA World Championship leader was Cheetah Championship qualifying winner Ritchie Allen of Columbia, S.C., with a total of 5,715 pins, 91 better than Lonnie Waliczek of Wichita, Kan.

"It’'s a marathon. There are still three more days," Allen said. "I'm definitely not getting ahead of myself. The lanes were real difficult tonight, but my balls seems to want to knock them down right now and if I can keep making cuts, good things will happen."

The Viper Championship qualifying round was the second of five qualifying stages within the PBA World Championship. All PBA World Series of Bowling competitors will bowl three more 12-game qualifying rounds on the PBA's Chameleon, Scorpion and Shark lane conditions over the next three days to complete the 60-game PBA World Championship standings.

Lehtonen said the difference between bowling on a freshly-oiled condition in the six-game morning block compared to an evening condition that had been broken down by the previous squad - commonly called a "burned condition" - was "not so many open frames. In the morning, I had a lot more open frames. Too many splits."

He also had high praise for Koivuniemi ("Mika is my best friend"), a long-time Team Finland teammate even though Koivuniemi currently lives in Hartland, Mich.

"Mika has coached me for many, many years. Every time I want to learn something new, I take a flight to see him and live in his home. One year he changed me from a crouched stance and a five-step approach to an upright stance with six steps.Two months later, I won the European Championship."

Lehtonen, a left-hander, decided to bowl in the World Series "because I'm hungry to learn something new and the best players in the world are here in the United States. The World Series is five different lane conditions. That's something new for me. I've played some tournaments in the U.S. before, but now my plan is I'm going to bowl all the tournaments I can this year."

 【PBA】 Pepsi Viper Championship 【Qualifying Round - Block1】

Rash, Thompson Share Early Viper Championship Lead
Waliczek Paces PBA World Championship Race

Sean Rash of Wichita, Kan., and Greg Thompson Jr. from Dublin, Calif., each averaged 236 for their first six games in the Viper Championship qualifying round during the second day of competition at the Professional Bowlers Association World Series of Bowling at South Point Bowling Center Tuesday.

Rash finished the morning session with a total of 1,417 pins, and Thompson, a 27-year-old PBA West Region player, matched him in the afternoon. Both held a two-pin lead Bill O'Neill of Southampton, Pa., going into the final six games off Viper qualifying later Tuesday.

Another Wichita resident, Lonnie Waliczek, had an 18-game total of 4,382 pins after his Cheetah and early Viper sessions, and jumped into the early lead in the PBA World Championship race. The PBA World Championship standings will be based on 60 games total pinfall after five 12-game rounds on five different PBA lane conditions this week.

Rash, a four-time Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour champion who hasn't won a title since 2007, is one of those with his eye on the bigger prize.

"Over the last couple of years, the Viper has been the hardest pattern for me," Rash said. "But the PBA made a change in the pattern and I had an open mind going in today, and I bowled really well. I'm just going to try to build off of it. There are 42 games left in main event and the Viper is just another stage."

"I pressed hard on Cheetah pattern Monday morning," he continued, "but on the fresh oil in the second session, I bowled unbelievable. I really gave it a run last night and I was having some fun. When you press it sucks. It's no fun. But there are a lot of games left, but everyone's goal is to make top 8 for the World Championship, so that's going to be my focus."

Thompson had his eyes on O'Neill, who was bowling on the same lanes during qualifying. O'Neill, who won his first two PBA Tour titles last season including the Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open, is considered to be a star-in-the-making, and roared out of the gates Tuesday with a 300 game.

"When (O'Neill) shot that 300 right out of gate, I saw he had a great ball reaction, so I just got on top of where he was playing and made the best shots I could," said Thompson, who owns one regional title, but has never been in contention for a PBA Tour title.

"I bowled the full season on the tour in 2006 and 2007," Thompson said. "The biggest thing I've learned in how the tour guys break the lanes down. It's completely different than the way the regional guys play the lanes. I'm learning to move in deeper and get the ball softer off my hand. I like to throw the ball hard and play more to the right, but I'm learning."

The World Series field of 252 players will complete their 12 games on the Viper lane condition later today, followed by 12-game qualifying rounds on the Chameleon, Scorpion and Shark Championship patterns over each of the next three days.

All of the World Series action is being webcast live on PBA's Xtra Frame, the exclusive video-streaming service of the PBA. For one-day, World Series-only or full-season subscriptions to Xtra Frame, visit www.xtraframe.tv.

"Changed" Ritchie Allen Wins Cheetah Qualifying Round

Ritchie Allen's professional bowling career was hanging by a thread at the conclusion of the 2009-10 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour season, but Monday, he was on top of the world as the Professional Bowlers Association's World Series of Bowling got underway at South Point Bowling Center.

Allen, a 32-year-old two-time PBA Tour champion, averaged 252 for 12 games to top the field of 16 qualifiers who will advance to the Brunswick Pro Bowling Cheetah Championship match play round next Monday. Allen finished with 3,020 total pins after firing games of 289, 279, 279, 248, 235 and 249 in his second six-game bloc for a 41-pin edge over Lonnie Waliczek of Wichita, Kan.

Allen, who has a reputation of being one of the PBA's most high-strung, emotional players, was surprisingly in control in his first appearance since coming up short in the 2009-10 competition points race and almost losing his PBA Tour exemption for 2010-11.

"I have a different mindset now," Allen said. "My wife (Sarah) got pregnant. It's our first and we just found out it's going to be a little girl. I have a lot more on my mind now than bowling. My priorities are different."

"Things mean just as much from a bowling standpoint, but my mind accepts bad breaks differently," he added. "It's easier to accept a bad break. Don't get me wrong; I'm not going to lose the intensity. When I feel it, I'm going try to win. But I'm not going to beat myself up if I get a bad break."

"The Cheetah is not one of my favorite lane conditions," he continued. "I'm not a fan. I like to hook the ball and normally you need to play straight on the Cheetah, but today I could hook it. You actually wanted to hook it. There were spots where you had to go around oil, and that's what I'm pretty good at."

"I figured if I could get through Cheetah, and have a decent day on the Viper condition (Tuesday), maybe I'll hit my stride later in the week.”"

The Brunswick Pro Bowling Cheetah Championship qualifying round was the opening event of the 2010-11 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour season, and the first leg in the PBA World Championship. All PBA World Series of Bowling competitors will bowl four more 12-game qualifying rounds on the PBA's Viper, Chameleon, Scorpion and Shark lane conditions over the next four days to complete the 60-game PBA World Championship standings.

While accumulating pins toward the World Championship is a high priority, all players will face a fresh challenge over the next four days. Similar to stages in the Tour de France, the top 16 players each day will advance to the Cheetah, Viper, Chameleon, Scorpion and Shark Championship match play rounds next week.

In week two, the top qualifiers on each pattern will bowl nine additional round-robin match play games with the top five based upon 21 total games advancing to the stepladder finals.

 【PBA】 Brunswick Pro Bowling Cheetah Championship 【Qualifying Round - Block1】

DeVaney Leads After 6 Games in Cheetah Championship as PBA World Series Gets Underway

Mike DeVaney of San Diego averaged 251 for the opening six games of the Brunswick Pro Bowling Cheetah Championship Monday at South Point Bowling Center to take the lead halfway through the first round in the opening event of the Professional Bowlers Association World Series of Bowling.

With another six games remaining later Monday for all players, DeVaney held a three-pin lead over Jeff Carter of Springfield, Ill. Russell's opening session included games of 258, 252, 279, 205, 269 and 247 for a 1,510 total. Carter had 1,507 pins.

"Getting off to a quick start, especially on the Cheetah pattern, is extremely important," DeVaney, a two-time PBA Tour winner said. "You can't win the tournament today, but you could certainly lose it."

"Actually, the Cheetah is one of the more difficult patterns for me to keep up with other guys, so it's a surprise to be leading, but it's also comforting to be in this position. I've made TV shows on all of the other animal patterns, but not on this one."

The Brunswick Pro Bowling Cheetah Championship qualifying round is the opening event of the 2010-11 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour season, and the first qualifying leg in the PBA World Championship. Following Monday's Cheetah round, all PBA World Series of Bowling competitors will bowl four more 12-game rounds on the PBA's Viper, Chameleon, Scorpion and Shark lane conditions over the next four days to complete the 60-game PBA World Championship qualifying standings.

While accumulating pins toward the World Championship is a high priority, all players also will face a fresh challenge each day over the first five days. Similar to stages in the Tour de France, the top 16 players after 12 games each day will advance to week two of the World Series, which will be devoted to determining the finalists for the Cheetah, Viper, Chameleon, Scorpion and Shark Championships.

In week two, the top 16 on each pattern will bowl nine games of round-robin match play to determine the top five for stepladder finals. The Brunswick Pro Bowling Cheetah Championship match play round will be contested on Monday, Nov. 1. The top five after 21 games will advance to the stepladder finals on Friday, Nov. 5.

松永裕美、完全勝利!

国内最高賞金額を誇るビッグタイトル・ROUND1CupLadies、今年は松永裕美の為の舞台だったと言って過言ではないでしょう。

予選前半終了時点では進出ラインに遠く及ばなかった選手が後半で猛チャージをかけて準決勝枠へ飛び込むなど、今大会も様々なドラマが生まれましたが、AVG230以上と一人飛び抜けて首位をひた走る松永に追いつく者はありませんでした。

決勝ラウンドロビン12Gでも一度として首位を渡さなかった松永の後ろを、先日のフィランスロピー・女子トーナメントで優勝を逃した吉田真由美がぴたりとマーク。それを内藤陽子、岸田有加、川口富美恵らが追いかけ、決勝ステップラダーへ進出を果たします。

今年のプロテストでトップ合格を果たした岸田と、久しぶりの5勝目が欲しい川口による5位決定戦は、中盤のストライク合戦でひとつ多く繋げた岸田の勝利。内藤との4位決定戦へ進みます。

今大会の主役は松永でしたが、ダークホースは間違いなくこの内藤でした。10年前にプロ入り以降、優勝経験はなく、今年5年ぶりにトーナメントに復帰したばかりの内藤でしたが、ラウンドワン所属プロとしてかけられる期待に見事応え、予選では前後半で5位をキープ。ラウンドロビンではただ一人10勝を挙げてステップラダーに乗り込み、4位決定戦では岸田を打倒。さらにリベンジに燃える吉田との3位決定戦でもじっと我慢のボウリングで勝利を掴み、とうとう優勝決定戦のステージへ上がります。

大本命対ダークホース。予想通り松永が圧勝するか、はたまた2ゲームを投げてレーンを掴んでいる内藤が大番狂わせを起こすか。観客の期待と興奮が高まる中、最後の戦いの火ぶたが切って落とされました。

2フレーム目までは両者互角。しかし3フレーム目を内藤がスプリットからオープンにすると、その隙に松永が6連続ストライクを決めます。最後まで松永の独走状態かと思われましたが、なんと勝負所の9フレーム目でまさかのカバーミス!お返しとばかりに終盤ストライクを重ねて内藤が追い上げ、勝負は10フレームに持ち込まれます。

最終フレーム、両者ともに一投目はストライク。内藤は逆転の為にもう一つストライクを繋げることが絶対条件でしたが、二投目は無情にも9本カウント。この時点で優勝が確定した松永は、万雷の拍手の中、昨年末の全日本女子プロ選手権以来10ヶ月ぶりのウィニングショットを決めました。

余裕の独走で首位を守り抜きつつ、一転ハラハラさせられる接戦を演じて最後まで観客の目を引きつけて放さなかった松永、ROUND1CupLadies初制覇にして完全勝利を成し遂げました!

 

片井文乃がナインテントーナメントを制覇!

決勝ステップラダーに先駆け、大会2日目に開催されましたナインテントーナメントのTVファイナルが行われ、西村美紀、片井文乃、愛甲恵子、柳美穂ら4人が登場。

昨年の男子大会で初めて開催され、好評を博して恒例となったこのナインテントーナメントは9・10フレームのみ、最大でも4回の投球でスコアで勝敗を決するという、単純なルールながら集中力が試されるエキシビション。今大会でもご贔屓の選手の一投一投を見守る観客が、盛大な拍手や歓声、残念な呻きをあげるなど一喜一憂の盛り上がりの中、41期生の柳VS43期生の片井という若手の中でもトップクラスの実力派による優勝決定戦となりました。

そこでなんと両者とも9Fストライク・10Fストライク・9本スペアで合計49ピンとまったく同じスコアとなり、ワンショットプレーオフでは片井がストライク、柳が9本カウントで勝敗が決定。片井が参加128名の頂点に立ち、賞金40万を手に入れました!

先日の東海オープンやシーズントライアルに続き、ギネス級の巨大センターを舞台として繰り広げられた男子新人の戦いは、遠藤誠の優勝で締めくくられました!

例年より参加枠を広げ、総勢226名での戦いとなった今大会、予選・準決勝と首位を独走した遠藤は、新人戦参加資格最後の年とあって、必ず初タイトルを手に入れると気合い十分。

そんな遠藤に続いて決勝進出を果たしたのは、アマチュアの川上禎夫選手と斉藤和義選手、48期生の小島和樹・小松永宜、49期生の木下直哉・川添奨太・野々山国幸。

頂点を決する総当たりのラウンドロビン戦で、今大会やや出遅れていた川添が追い上げを開始。序盤では遠藤から首位を奪い取ります。

しかし今年デビューしたばかりの川添に対し、遠藤は今年を逃せば永遠に手に入らない貴重なタイトル。中盤で再び首位を奪い返すと、二度と手放さないとばかりに対戦相手を次々と撃破し、他の6人を大きく引き離して迎えたポジションマッチ、遠藤と川添は再び顔を合わせます。

この時点で遠藤は川添に103ポイントリードしており、川添がパーフェクトを出して勝利したとしても遠藤は228ピン以上を打てば自力優勝が決まり、ほぼ遠藤の楽勝と思われましたが、現在ポイントランキング5位ですでに来季シード入りが確定している川添のプライドが火を噴きます。遠藤もまたその挑戦を受けて立ち、優勝を決定する最後の一戦は川添280ピン対遠藤256ピンのまさに手に汗握る白熱戦となりました。

激戦を終えて初タイトルを手に入れた遠藤、来季初のシード入りを果たすべく、これを弾みに年内残り2戦での活躍が期待されます!

涙でぼやける中、最後のストライクを決めて拳を振り上げる

先日行われた男子東海オープンと同じく、順位の変動が激しい混戦模様となった今年の「HANDA CUP」フィランスロピー・女子トーナメント。

予選後半で順位を上げた選手が準決勝で失速すると、初代女王の姫路麗や今年7月のBIGBOX東大和カップで3位入賞を果たした霜出佳奈選手らもラウンドロビンを前に敗退。

一方準決勝でチャージをかけ、ラウンドロビン進出枠へ飛び込んだ藤田麻衣、鈴木亜季らの他、板倉奈智美、長縄多禧子の実力者もファイナル進出は叶わず、決勝ステップラダー進出を果たしたのは予選から1位を守り抜いた吉川朋絵を筆頭に、吉田真由美、金城愛乃、片井文乃という顔ぶれに。

ここ3年ほど優勝がない吉田と金城、初優勝がかかった吉川と片井。誰が勝ってもドラマティックな展開ですが、もっともドラマを背負っていたのは吉川だったと言えるでしょう。

今年4月の宮崎プロアマオープン、優勝決定戦で愛甲恵子に敗れて呑んだ悔し涙。左腕には、つい先日開催された千葉国体の成年女子の部で団体優勝した時に身に着けていたという、母のブレスレット。そして生涯を共にしたい大事な人が見守る中、吉川は片井を下して勝ち上がってきた吉田と優勝決定戦の舞台に上がりました。

1フレーム目をオープンフレームで滑り出した吉川でしたが、吉田も序盤はストライクが続かず、両者ほぼ並んだ状態でゲームが進みます。しかし終盤へ差し掛かった7フレーム目、吉田が痛恨のスプリット。ビッグファイブを攻略できずオープンにすると、対する吉川はここぞとばかりにターキーを決めて吉田を引き離します。

吉田が8フレーム目からオールウェーを決めればまだ可能性は残りましたが、9フレーム目は無情にも7番ピンに嫌われスペアにしてしまったのに対し、吉川の10フレーム・1投目は8ピンカウント。これで勝敗が確定し、結果は吉田198ピン対吉川226ピンで吉川の勝利に。

4月の惜敗から半年、再び立ったファイナルステージで見事リベンジを果たした吉川、嬉し涙の初優勝・初タイトルを掴み取りました!

 

優勝副賞はプロポーズ!

さらにおめでたいことに、プロボウラーとして初の勝利を掴んだばかりの吉川を、今度は女性として人生の幸福が待っていました。
