Sean Rash Wins Closest PBA Player of the Year Contest in Years; Belmonte Second, Fagan Third

Sean Rash

Sean Rash

Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., was named as 2011-12 Professional Bowlers Association Chris Schenkel Player of the Year Monday, concluding one of the most competitive Player of the Year contests in years.

Rash, who made a record five-consecutive television finals during the 2011 PBA World Series of Bowling and concluded his season with a victory in the PBA Tournament of Champions, was elected over a field of 11 eligible candidates in balloting conducted among his fellow PBA Tour competitors and veteran members of the bowling news media.

In the end, Rash received 29.04 percent of the Player of the Year votes, Australia’s Jason Belmonte 26.61 percent and Mike Fagan of Dallas 18.32 percent in the closest voting contest in years. Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., received 11.89 percent and Norm Duke of Clermont, Fla., 10.23 percent to round out the top five vote-getters.

The announcement was made live on PBA’s Xtra Frame online bowling channel as a special kickoff to the made-for-television PBA Summer Shootout special event at 10pin bowling lounge in Chicago.

During the 2011-12 PBA Tour season, Rash, a 29-year-old right-hander, won the season-ending PBA Tournament of Champions for his only title, but had six championship round finishes, including third place in the PBA World Championship. Qualifying for a record five consecutive TV finals during the World Series of Bowling helped the Alaska native dominate PBA Tour stats where he finish first in average, points and earnings.

“We all had great seasons, but I think winning the TOC put a stamp on it,” Rash said. “I’m a stats guy. When I voted in the past, I voted by the numbers. They don’t lie. If one of those guys had won the TOC, he would have got my vote.

“I felt a big sign of relief,” he said of the moment PBA Commissioner Tom Clark announced his win. “It meant a lot to have the waiting finally over.

“Jason and Mike and I have bowled in 15 different countries during the past year. We travel around the world to stay sharp,” Rash added. “You take a lot of satisfaction after all of the travel, the practice, the sacrifices you make. We’ve made each other better.”

Belmonte, a 28-year-old two-handed player, won three titles, had championship round finishes, finished third in average and second in both points and earnings. Belmonte also finished third in the U.S. Open and Tournament of Champions, fourth in the PBA World Championship and ninth in the USBC Masters.

Fagan, a 31-year-old right-hander, won the Alka-Seltzer Plus Liquid Gels USBC Masters for his first major title and he won the Brunswick Euro Challenge in Paris, France. The Long Island, N.Y., native had three additional championship round finishes including second place in the U.S. Open and fourth place in the Tournament of Champions. Statistically, he was second in average, and third in points and earnings.

Also contending in the Player of the Year race were Weber, the 2012 U.S. Open champion, and Duke, three-time winner during the 2011-12 season.

The Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year Award is named in honor of the late hall of fame announcer who served as the voice of the PBA on ABC Television for 36 years.

Johnny Petraglia Wins PBA Senior Dayton Classic Achieving Milestone of Winning PBA Titles in Six Decades

Johnny Petraglia

Johnny Petraglia

PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia became the first player in PBA history to win a national tour or senior tour title in six decades by winning the PBA Senior Dayton Classic presented by Roto Grip Thursday at Capri Lanes.

Petraglia, who won his eighth career Senior Tour title, also ended a three-year drought without a win by defeating reigning Senior Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Eagle River, Alaska, 220-204, in the title match.

Petraglia, who was the top seed for the finals, started strong with the first three strikes but then ran into trouble in the fourth frame throwing a 4-6-7-10 split. He threw another split (3-7) in the seventh frame but was able to close out the match with four strikes and a nine-count which was enough to beat Mohr who was also struggling.

“When I threw that first split it surprised me because I thought it was going to be a strike,” said the 65-year-old Petraglia, whose last Senior Tour title came in the 2009 Sun Bowl In The Villages. “Frankly, I was a little lost at that point. I really didn’t make an adjustment until after that second split when I moved right on the approach threw it a little farther left on the lane and trusted that it would come back and it did.

“I guess some things are meant to happen,” he added. “Ron was having trouble on the left lane leaving three 10-pins which meant if I could get back to striking I could still win the match.”
Overall, Petraglia and fellow PBA legend Dick Weber both have PBA titles in six decades, however, Weber’s longevity mark includes a PBA regional title. Petraglia also owns 14 PBA Tour titles, winning his first at a national tour stop in Ft. Smith, Ark., in 1966 at the age of 19.

“I guess it shows how old I am,” Petraglia said jokingly after achieving the milestone. “But this is very special to me because it’s part of history and makes it all worth it.

“You know at my age, I was wondering if it was going to happen,” he said. “There are so many great Senior Tour players and there are more great bowlers from the regular tour who are becoming eligible so it doesn’t get any easier. Another thing that makes it special is that there are some guys that might be able to tie this record in the coming years and decades but probably not going to break it.”

In the semi-final match, Mohr, trying for his first title of the season and eighth of his career, defeated Ron Profitt of Brookville, Ohio, 238-222, to advance to the title match. In the opening match, Profitt defeated last week’s Senior Mooresville Classic winner Bob Learn Jr. of Erie, Pa., 243-217. Learn beat Profitt in the championship match of that tournament, 203-196, for his first Senior Tour title.

The Senior Tour takes a two-week break before the Senior U.S. Open June 3-8 at the Suncoast Bowling Center in Las Vegas. The season’s first major will be streamed live in its entirety on bowling’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame. Subscription information is available at www.xtraframe.tv.

Blanchard and Larsen Win Top PBA Honors

Josh Blanchard

Martin Larsen

Martin Larsen

Arizona's Josh Blanchard, a former Wichita State University All-American, is the 2011-12 PBA Harry Golden Rookie of the Year and Sweden's Martin Larsen the Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award winner, the Professional Bowlers Association announced Wednesday.

PBA Commissioner Tom Clark also announced that Australia’s Jason Belmonte, Mike Fagan of Dallas and Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., are the finalists for the 2011-12 Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year award. One of the most hotly contested Player of the Year races will come to an end at noon ET on Monday, May 28, when this year’s winner will be announced in a special ceremony webcast live on PBA’s Xtra Frame online bowling channel from 10pin bowling lounge in Chicago.

The 24-year-old Blanchard from Gilbert, Ariz., got his PBA career off to a fast start when he won a PBA West Region Non-Champions tournament for his first title in the first event he entered as a member. In his first year as a PBA Tour player, he dominated rookie stats, cashing in 10 of 13 events (the next closest rookie cashed in only two events) while leading all rookies in average, points and earnings. His best finish was third in the PBA Cheetah Open presented by Ebonite.

“The successes and failures I learned this season have taught me what I need to know not to just be competitive but to compete for wins,” said Blanchard, who made one other championship round appearance and gained some unexpected notoriety when he fell during the ESPN telecast of the PBA World Championship Mike Aulby Division finals. “This year my mindset was to bowl well enough to make cuts and match play rounds.  After my experience this season I believe I have the confidence where now my mindset will be bowl to win.

"I achieved way more than I expected,” said Blanchard, who was a runaway winner of the Rookie of the Year award. “I mainly joined (the PBA) to see how good my skills were and if I could compete. Rookie of the Year really didn't enter into my mind until I had some good finishes."

Larsen, a veteran member of Team Sweden at age 32, earned the right to bowl as an “exempt” PBA player during the 2011-12 season after two quality seasons as a part-time international player. The six-time European Bowling Tour titlist finished third in the Dick Weber PBA Playoffs presented by Hammer and fifth in the PBA Cheetah Open presented by Ebonite.

“Wow, it’s an honor to be included in the list of some very worthy bowlers,” Larsen said. “Some guys back home will say they’re not surprised I got the award, but I am. This year I’m the “nice” bowler of the year, maybe next year I can be Bowler of the Year.”

Larsen joins 2009-10 winner George Lambert IV of Canada as the only two international players ever to win the Nagy Award.

Other players who received Nagy Award votes were Tom Hess, Urbandale, Iowa; Kelly Kulick, Union, N.J.; two-time Nagy winner Jack Jurek, Lackawanna, N.Y., and Scott Norton, Costa Mesa, Calif.

The Harry Golden Rookie of the Year award, named after the late PBA Tour Tournament Director, is voted on by the PBA membership and the Steve Nagy Award is determined by a vote of PBA Exempt players. Established in 1966, the Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award is named after the late PBA Hall of Famer who was one of 33 founding members of the PBA.
In the Player of the Year voting among the PBA membership and select veteran bowling writers, Belmonte, Fagan and Rash are the top three vote-getters.

Belmonte won three titles including the Elite Players Championship, had seven top-five finishes, finished third in average and second in both points and earnings. Belmonte also finished third in the U.S. Open and Tournament of Champions, fourth in the PBA World Championship and ninth in the USBC Masters.

Fagan qualified for TV shows in all four PBA Tour majors. He won the USBC Masters, finished second in the U.S. Open, fourth in the Tournament of Champions and 12th in the PBA World Championship. He also won an international PBA Tour title, the Brunswick Euro Challenge in Paris, France. Statistically, he was second in average and third in points and earnings.

Rash won PBA’s signature event, the Tournament of Champions. He led the Tour with eight top-five finishes, including third place in the PBA World Championship, and finished first in average, points and earnings. He also qualified for a record five consecutive TV finals during the World Series of Bowling.

Bob Learn Jr. Wins PBA Senior Mooresville Classic For First Senior Tour Title

Bob Learn Jr.

Bob Learn Jr.

In only his third tournament on the PBA Senior Tour, Bob Learn Jr. of Erie, Pa., won the Senior Mooresville Classic presented by Columbia Wednesday for his first Senior Tour title.
Learn, who won five PBA Tour titles including the 1999 U.S. Open in a 15-year PBA Tour career, defeated Ron Profitt of Brookville, Ohio, 203-196, in the championship match at George Pappas Victory Lanes.

After starting the match with two strikes, Profitt ran into trouble early with a split and a washout in the third and fourth frames, respectively, which he failed to convert and was not able to recover from later in the match.

“When he threw the split and the washout it definitely changed the tone of the match,” said the 50-year-old Learn. “Even though I didn’t have a good look on the pair either, from that point on I was able to bowl just good enough to stay ahead of him.”

In his two previous Senior Tour tournaments this season Learn finished ninth in both the Senior Sun Bowl In The Villages and Senior Don Carter Memorial Open.

“Third time’s the charm I guess,” said Learn. “I’m qualifying well but you have to get some breaks in the match play rounds and it kind of made up for some bad breaks I had in the first two tournaments.”

Profitt was trying for his first win in six seasons on the Senior Tour. He had a long road to the championship match winning three best-of-five matches, a best-of-three match and the semifinal. His runnerup finish was a career best with fourth being his best previous finish.

In the semifinal matches, Learn defeated Mike Henry of Brunswick, Ohio, 201-189, and Profitt defeated last week’s Senior Don Carter Memorial winner Walter Ray Williams Jr., 248-206.
The next stop for the PBA Senior Tour will be the Senior Dayton Classic presented by Roto Grip May 14-17 at Capri Lanes in Kettering, Ohio. The tournament will be streamed live in its entirety on pba.com’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame. For Xtra Frame subscription information click on the Xtra Frame logo on the pba.com homepage.

Walter Ray Wins PBA Senior Don Carter Memorial for Third Career Senior Tour Title

Walter Ray Williams Jr

Walter Ray Williams Jr

Rebounding from a tough 2011-12 PBA Tour season and coping with the emotions resulting from his father’s recent passing, Walter Ray Williams Jr. persevered to win the PBA Don Carter Memorial Open presented by Ebonite Wednesday for his third career Senior Tour title.

Williams defeated Bo Goergen of Sanford, Mich., in the championship at Carter Family Bowl, 247-217, marking his first Senior Tour win since the Senior Mark Roth Allentown Open in May of 2011.

In the 2011-12 Tour season, the 52-year-old Hall of Famer’s record streak of 26 consecutive years making at least one TV finals appearance came to an end and he had a best finish of only 17th in the Shark Open. On Tuesday his father passed away after a lengthy illness.

“I’m not an emotional person but I’ll have to admit this was an emotional week for me,” said Williams. “It helped a great deal to have my family here not only for my dad but also to be here to watch me bowl.”

Even though the scores showed that Williams was dominant in match play, he felt fortunate to win all four of his matches Wednesday.

“On paper it looked easy but I can tell you that in a few of those matches my opponents bowled better than they scored,” said the PBA Tour all-time titles leader with 47 wins. “An example was Bo in the title match when he started with the first five (strikes) but then had a split in the sixth frame which gave me an opening.”

Williams’ win in the second tournament of the 2012 season comes off a fourth-place finish in last week’s season-opening Senior Sun Bowl In The Villages in The Villages, Fla.


“It was a great tournament and nice to win again,” Williams said. “It’s a confidence builder and now I just hope I can keep some momentum going and hope for a good Senior Tour season.

“The lanes play a little differently out here than they do on the regular tour but you still have to make good shots and when you don’t, you need to make the right adjustments. I just wasn’t throwing enough good shots last season on tour.”

In the semifinals, Williams defeated fellow Ocala resident Brian Brazeau, who was trying for his second Senior Tour title, 246-213. In the other semifinal, Goergen, trying for his first Senior Tour title, defeated Tim Kauble of Marion, Ohio, 190-165.

The next stop for the PBA Senior Tour will be the Senior Mooresville Classic presented by Columbia May 6-9 at George Pappas Victory Lanes in Mooresville, N.C.
