 【USBC】 U.S. Women's Open 【Finals】

Hulsenberg takes down defending champ Kulick to win 2011 U.S. Women's Open

Hall of Famer Leanne Hulsenberg of Roseville, Calif., topped defending champion Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., 218-183 to win the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open on Thursday.  The championship round was contested on lanes constructed on the 50-yard-line of the famed Cowboys Stadium before a crowd in excess of 6,000, making it among the most well-attended events in bowling history.

Competing in the most unique venue in the history of women's bowling, Hulsenberg claimed her first title in nearly a decade and earned $50,000 for the victory. The event, presented by the brands of Ebonite International and conducted by the Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA), will be broadcast on Saturday at 6 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2.

"I'm actually sitting here thinking I can't believe this just happened to me," said No. 2 seed Hulsenberg, a 27-time professional champion who won her last pro title Sept. 19, 2002, at the Three Rivers Open in Pittsburgh. "This win means so many different things to me. For my family it's a very special day because I met my husband after I stopped bowling full time. On a bowling level, it's special because I've been with Ebonite for 20 years and they had so much to do with this tournament."

Had one of the finalists thrown a perfect game in the championship match, they would have received a $1 million prize, which is unprecedented in the history of bowling. The quest for $1 million ended quickly, however, as both players started the championship match by leaving a 10 pin.

"With the pressure of playing on one of the largest stages there is - Cowboys Stadium and on national TV - Leanne rose to the occasion and delivered an exceptional performance," said Steve Johnson, executive director of the BPAA. "This is an incredible moment in a year that has seen bowling flourish in popularity among women and continue its incredible resurgence as the nation's number one participatory sport.  Speaking on behalf of the bowling industry and the 71 million bowlers across the United States, I congratulate Leanne for demonstrating everything that makes bowling great and for showing what a champion is made of."

Top-seeded Kulick, who won the 2003 and 2010 U.S. Women's Open, got off to a shaky start in the match, only striking on one shot in the first six frames while leaving the 4-6-7-10 split for opens twice. The 183 game was the lowest Kulick shot in her 49 tournament games. She entered the championship match averaging 241.35 for the event.

"Unfortunately, my feel just wasn't there tonight," said Kulick, a seven-time Team USA member who is the only woman to win a title on the Professional Bowlers Association Tour. "The humidity level was very high, and I never got a comfortable fit with the ball. There never was a happy medium. It wasn't that I was lost on the lanes. I went in and did the best I could."

In the semifinal, Hulsenberg escaped with a narrow victory over No. 5 seed Lynda Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, 247-246, after Barnes went high and left the 6-10 on her final shot of the game. Hulsenberg, who trailed by 42 pins at the halfway point of the match, rebounded by closing the game with seven consecutive strikes.

Barnes began the second match with seven consecutive strikes in eliminating No. 3 seed Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y., 259-225. Johnson left a 4-6 split for an open in the fourth frame and eventually trailed by more than 60 pins, a deficit from which she would never recover.

In the opening match, Barnes defeated Shannon O'Keefe of Arlington, Texas, 268-166. O'Keefe, the fourth seed, failed to strike in the first five frames as Barnes jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

The U.S. Women's Open featured a record-breaking field of 286 of the top female bowlers in the world competing for a total prize fund of $225,000.

Kulick is top qualifier for U.S. Women's Open finals

Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., wrapped up a dominating performance in qualifying for the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open, going 6-2 in the final round of Wednesday's match play, to claim the top seed for Thursday's finals at Cowboys Stadium.

Kulick had a 48-game total of 11,945, including 30 bonus pins for each victory, to lead the final 16 bowlers in the field at AMF Euless Lanes in Euless, Texas. Leanne Hulsenberg of Roseville, Calif., finished 276 pins back at 11,669.

Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y., took the third seed while Shannon O'Keefe of Arlington, Texas, climbed from sixth after Tuesday's match play to take the fourth seed. Lynda Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, took the final spot.

"New venue, new place, different atmosphere," Kulick said about the finals at Cowboys Stadium. "But knowing as well as I've performed all week long, I'm going to take that and build up my confidence to go and bowl only one game tomorrow night and be the best game of my career."

Kulick, who won the 2003 and 2010 U.S. Women's Open, also has the chance to defend her title.

"I've never defended," Kulick said. "This is the first opportunity for me to do so, and I would love to walk away having defended my U.S. Open title."

Hulsenberg won 26 Professional Women's Bowling Association titles and has made more than 100 TV appearances in her career, but said this is the first time her husband, Gary, has had the chance to see her bowl this well.

"I'm a little overwhelmed," said Hulsenberg. "It's been a long time since I've made a TV show."

The U.S. Women's Open finals will be broadcast on Saturday, July 2 at 6 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2. If a bowler throws a 300 game in the championship match, she will win $1 million. The champion will earn $50,000.

The 2011 U.S. Women's Open already has broken one record with 286 participants, which tops the previous record of 267 set in 2003. A total of 17 countries are represented in the field.

Defending champion Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., went 6-2 in the opening round of match play Tuesday night as she maintained her lead at the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open.

"I didn't score as well as well on the fresh today as I did yesterday," Kulick said. "I'm trying to pull away from the field, but everyone is bowling well behind me. I think if I focus on repeating shots, I'll be in position to make the show tomorrow."

The Team USA member, who won the 2003 and 2010 U.S. Women's Open, turned it on down the stretch, closing with games of 249, 257, 228 and 232 to lead by 247 pins. Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y., is second with 9,565.

 【USBC】 U.S. Women's Open 【Round 3】

Defending champion Kulick takes U.S. Women's Open lead

Defending champion Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., re-established herself as the player to beat at the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open on Monday, firing a massive eight-game total to move into the overall lead.

The Team USA member averaged better than 262 a game Monday in taking the overall lead after 24 games with 5,920, a 246.67 average. She had an eight-game total of 2,100 in the third round at AMF Euless Lanes.

"Knowing I get to bowl on the fresh oil again tomorrow puts a huge smile on my face," said Kulick, who shot her big total on the first squad of the day Monday. "I'm just going to try and get as far ahead as possible to put myself into position to make the TV show."

Kulick topped a field of 286 of the top amateur and professional bowlers in the world to take the lead and will be joined by the rest of the top 32 players in the field for an additional eight games of qualifying Tuesday morning.

"I want to keep going strong so I can make a run at the $50,000 first-place prize and maybe even that $1 million for bowling 300 in the championship match," said Kulick, the 2003 and 2010 U.S. Women's Open champion. "There have been quite a few 300 games so far, but I haven't shot mine yet. I'm saving it."

Shannon Pluhowsky of Kettering, Ohio, the second-round leader, sits in second place with 5,808, an average of 242 per game. She's followed by Shannon O'Keefe of Arlington, Texas, with 5,663.

It took an average of 222.71 to make the first cut to the top 32. Joline Persson-Planefors of Sweden earned the final spot with a 24-game total of 5,345.

After the top 32 complete their final eight games of qualifying Tuesday morning, the field will be cut to the top 16 for 16 games of round robin match play, which begins Tuesday night. The remaining five bowlers will move on to the finals at Cowboys Stadium on Thursday night.

The finals of the U.S. Women's Open will be broadcast on Saturday, July 2 at 6 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2. If a bowler throws a 300 game in the championship match, she will win $1 million. The champion will earn $50,000.

Pluhowsky jumps into lead at U.S. Women's Open

Team USA's Shannon Pluhowsky of Kettering, Ohio, took the second round lead Sunday at the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open, topping a field of 286 of the top amateur and professional bowlers in the world.

Pluhowsky has averaged 242 over two days of qualifying at AMF Euless Lanes. Her 16-game total of 3,872 included an eight-game total Sunday of 1,898. Defending champion Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., is second with 3,820.

"I got off to a slow start today," said Pluhowsky, who won the 2006 United States Bowling Congress Queens. "Physically, I wasn't throwing the ball as well as I did yesterday, but I made the flip to the low end of the bowling center and things started to fall into place."

After starting the day a bit shaky with a 190 game, Pluhowsky turned it on down the stretch, closing with games of 277 and 269 to lead the field.

"The mindset is to get as many pins as I can every time I am out there," Pluhowsky said. "Qualifying really counts in this tournament because once you start match play with bonus pins, people start picking up ground quickly. So the more you get now, the better off you are later."

Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y., is in third place with 3,805, while April Ellis of Arlington, Texas, sits in fourth place at 3,794. Jacqui Reese of Bangor, Pa., rounds out the top five with 3,753.

All players will return for an additional eight games of qualifying on Monday. The field will then be cut to the top 32 for eight final qualifying games to determine the top 16 for round robin match play starting Tuesday night. The remaining five bowlers will move on to the finals at Cowboys Stadium on Thursday night.

The finals of the U.S. Women's Open will be broadcast on Saturday, July 2 at 6 p.m. Eastern on ESPN2. If a bowler throws a 300 game in the championship match, she will win $1 million. The champion will earn $50,000.

Lisanne Breeschoten leads U.S. Women's Open after Round 1

Powered by a perfect game, Lisanne Breeschoten of the Netherlands took the opening round lead at the 2011 Bowling's U.S. Women's Open on Saturday by averaging better than 249 for eight games.

Breeschoten fired 300 in Game 7 en route to a 1,997 eight-game total of AMF Euless Lanes, topping a field of 290 of the top amateur and professional bowlers in the world.

"I'm pretty happy and it feels like I'm dreaming," Breeschoten said. "I was nervous when I shot the 300, but I knew I had a little room to make a mistake and still strike. I was actually more nervous before we started the first game."

Breeschoten had games of 233, 289, 247, 251, 203, 247, 300 and 227 on the opening squad of the day. Team USA's Shannon Pluhowsky of Kettering, Ohio, had a chance to snag the lead away in the final game of the day, but shot 181 and sits in second place with 1,974.

"I feel like I threw the ball really well today, but I just caught a bad pair the last game," said Pluhowsky, an 11-time Team USA member who won the 2006 United States Bowling Congress Queens. "It's still really early in the tournament, but to get off to a start like this feels great."

Team USA's Shannon O'Keefe of Arlington, Texas, sits in third place with 1,957, while April Ellis of Arlington, Texas, is fourth at 1,950.

All players will return for an additional eight games of qualifying on Sunday and eight games on Monday. The field will then be cut to the top 32 for eight final qualifying games to determine the top 16 for round robin match play starting Tuesday night. The remaining five bowlers will move on to the finals at Cowboys Stadium on Thursday night.

Ron Mohr's Dream Season Continues with Win in PBA Senior Northern California Classic

Ron Mohr of Eagle River, Alaska, has established himself as the player to beat on the PBA Senior Tour, winning the PBA Senior Northern California Classic Wednesday for his second consecutive, and third title overall, this season.

Mohr, who won the PBA Senior U.S. Open just last Friday in Las Vegas for his first major, defeated Hugh Miller of Seattle 223-215, at Harvest Park Bowl in the dramatic title match that wasn't decided until the 10th frame.

Mohr's win continued a dream season in which he has competed in four consecutive title matches and also has second, third and fourth-place finishes to go along with his three wins through the first six tournaments of the season. His first win came in the Senior Miller High Life Classic in May.

"The dream continues I guess --- it’'s absurd," Mohr admitted. "What can you say but that I've been extremely fortunate this year. It's all been so unexpected coming into this season after not having bowled competitively for seven months."

The winning shot came on the second ball of the 10th frame when Mohr doubled as a result of a "messenger" - a late-arriving pin that flew across the pin deck -- that knocked down a stubborn 10 pin.

"I needed the first two strikes in the 10th and after I got the first one I felt like I had a good look so I was pretty confident I could get the second one," said the 2009 Senior Player of the Year. "The second shot was good but a little light and I thought well I gave it a shot, but here comes a pin out of nowhere to take out the 10 pin."

"I thought maybe I used up all of my nine lives at that point," he continued. "In match play I had some breaks and got away with some matches I probably shouldn't have --- it's all really just unbelievable."

With his win, Mohr has a commanding lead in the Player of the Year race but said he will miss the United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters, the season's next stop and second major which will be conducted the first week in August so that he can attend his stepson Justin's wedding. Mohr missed most of the second half of last season to be with his wife, Linda (and Justin's mom), who eventually passed away in January as the result of complications from surgery.

In the semifinals, Mohr defeated Hall of Famer Wayne Webb, 223-195 to advance to the final and Miller defeated Dick Baker of Henderson, Nev., 248-237. At age 69 Baker was trying to become the oldest player to win a Senior Tour title.

Miller, a seven-time Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour and one-time Senior Tour titlist, decided to enter the tournament at the last minute and dominated the qualifying portion of the tournament as top qualifier averaging 247, which was 10 pins better than No. 2 qualifier Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. who was eventually was eliminated in the tournament's Round of 8.

Webb will be the host proprietor for the Senior Masters when the event is conducted July 31-Aug. 5 at his Wayne Webb's Columbus Bowl in Columbus, Ohio. Webb will also be inducted into the USBC Hall of Fame on July 1.

今年もハイスコア合戦となったROUND1CUP。その一方で変化が早く、一筋縄では行かないレーンが選手の前に立ちはだかり、予選から準決勝まで順位の変動が激しい混戦となりました。

そんな中、251.40AVGを叩き出し、予選前半のトップに立った益田隆司。しかしその益田も予選後半からスコアのローハイ差が激しくなり、準決勝では苦戦を強いられます。予選2位の吉田文啓や7位の砂子明廣らも同じく苦戦し順位を落としましたが、益田は予選での貯金が効いて何とか踏みとどまり、決勝ラウンドロビンへは10位で進出。

しかしラウンドロビンで益田が再びの猛チャージ。244.16AVGを打って田形研吾から首位を奪い返します。その後に岡野秀幸、ポジションマッチで299ピンを叩き出し怒濤の追い上げを見せた斉藤茂雄の42期組が続き、最後の一席に長谷宏が座って決勝ステップラダーへ進出します。

長谷VS斉藤による5位決定戦、斉藤は丁寧なボウリングでノーミスを守りますが、中盤で4連続ストライクを決めた長谷に9ピン及ばず敗退。

続いて4位決定戦では二度の7-10スプリットを出して岡野が自滅。初優勝が欲しい42期組二人を立て続けに下した長谷と、ラウンドワン専属プロとして大きな期待がかかる田形との対戦は、またしても中盤で4連続ストライクを決めた長谷が勝利します。

変化の激しいレーンに粘り腰で食らいつき勝ち上がって来た長谷でしたが、とうとうレーンの魔物に捕まってしまったか、優勝決定戦ではストライクが決まりません。

対する益田はターキーで滑り出すと、中盤でもダブルを決めて長谷との差を広げます。このままワンサイドゲームかと思われた矢先、勝負どころの9フレーム目でなんと益田が悪夢のスプリット。オープンフレームとしてしまい、長谷にも勝利の可能性が見えて来たところで、先攻の益田が213ピンで投球を終了します。

長谷は最低でも10フレーム目でダブルが必要となり、3投目が9ピン以上で逆転優勝、8ピンなら同点でワンショットプレーオフへ、7ピン以下で届かず敗北という展開に追い込まれました。

後攻・長谷の1投目はストライク。もはやその先を見ることも出来ず、目をつぶって結果を待つ益田の耳に、観客のどよめきと歓声が飛び込みます。思わず目を開くと、そこには2・4・5・8番のバケットを残し、勝利を掴み損ねた長谷の姿がありました。

シニアタイトルでは2勝を挙げているものの、レギュラーツアーでは未勝利だった益田、初めてのレギュラータイトルをこの国内最高賞金がかかった大舞台で獲得しました!

毎年恒例となりましたもう一つのお楽しみであるナインテントーナメント、今年は加藤祐哉が頂点を制しました!

9・10フレームのみ、最大でも5回しか投球できないまさに真剣勝負、観客も選手も大変な盛り上がりを見せました。

ストライク4個を繋げて石原章夫を倒した加藤が、優勝決定戦にて金子俊之と対決。相澤英昭との対戦ではパーフェクト(?)まであと一歩だった金子でしたが、決勝ではストライクが決まらず、10フレームでダブルを持って来た加藤が悠々と勝利を決めます。

昨年は決勝ラウンドロビンへ2位進出を果たしながらもファイナルステージには立てなかった加藤、その口惜しさを今年はナインテントーナメントへぶつけ、見事賞金40万円を手に入れました!。

Ron Mohr Wins 2011 PBA Senior U.S. Open for First Major Title

After finishing second in last year's Professional Bowlers Association Senior U.S. Open presented by Suncoast, 2009 Senior Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Eagle River, Alaska, returned to win the sport's most demanding Senior Tour tournament for his first major title Friday at the Suncoast Bowling Center.

Qualifying fourth for the stepladder finals, Mohr defeated PBA Hall of Famer and top qualifier Walter Ray Williams Jr., 246-189, in the championship match to win his fifth Senior Tour title and first major.

It was after last year's Senior U.S. Open that Mohr had to miss the rest of the 2010 season to return to Alaska to care for his wife, Linda, who eventually passed away in January as the result of surgery last year.

"She was my guardian angel and she was with me today," Mohr said. "Both the support back home and out here on tour has been unbelievable and that has been very important to my success this year."

In the opening stepladder match, Mohr defeated reigning Senior Player of the Year and PBA Hall of Famer Wayne Webb 265-258, thanks in large part to converting a crucial 4-10 split in the sixth frame. Webb, who finished fourth, was trying to become the tournament's first three-time winner after returning to Senior Tour competition as the result of missing the first four tournaments of the season recovering from knee surgery earlier this year.

In the semifinal match, Mohr defeated 2009 PBA Senior World Championship winner Harry Sullins of Chesterfield Township, Mich., in a back-and-forth 220-211 match. Sullins, who won the Sun Bowl In The Villages earlier in the season was trying for his third Senior Tour title to go along with his five PBA Tour wins.

"In the semifinal match I made too much of an adjustment and threw a couple bad shots," Mohr said. "I thought I was going to have to make more of a major move after the first match but the transition really wasn't that drastic for me so I just made a small couple board adjustment and got back on track."

The win was especially satisfying for Mohr who had to come from 67th place after the first round of qualifying on Monday.

"It¶s probably one of the biggest moves I've ever had to make in a tournament," Mohr said. "I was concerned at that point but not overly worried," Mohr said. "At that point there was a lot of bowling left and I wasn't that far out of the first cut (to 56 players) so I just made the adjustments and took it a day at a time which you have to do in a marathon tournament like this."

The Senior U.S. Open format is one of the most demanding in the sport. To get to the championship round a bowler must get through four qualifying rounds and three match play rounds for a total of 51 games.

As the Senior Tour heads into the second half of the season Mohr now takes the lead in the Senior Player of the Year race over Williams. Mohr won the Senior Miller High Life Classic and also has second, third and fourth-place finishes this season. He avenged his second-place finish to Williams in the recent Senior Mark Roth Allentown Open where he lost in the title match 268-168.

"Walter's the best out here and everyone kind of expects him to be the guy," Mohr said. "It's nice to become the top senior player in the world by winning the toughest tournament we bowl but right now I'm just going to enjoy the moment."

The next stop for the Senior Tour will be the Senior Northern California Classic June 19-22 at Harvest Park Bowl in Brentwood, Calif.
