Australia’s Jason Belmonte Wins First Major, Tops Wes Malott in USBC Masters Title Match

Australian two-handed star Jason Belmonte picked up his first major title and became just the second foreign player to win the United States Bowling Congress Masters on Sunday in front of a capacity crowd at Brunswick Zone Carolier.

Belmonte defeated Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, 258-245, to win the $50,000 first-place prize and a major title on the PBA Tour. The victory was his sixth career PBA Tour title.

“This is without a doubt the greatest feeling I’ve ever had on a pair of the lanes,” said Belmonte, who joined Finland’s Mika Koivuniemi as the only foreign players to win the Masters. “You come out on the PBA Tour, the hardest tour in the world with the greatest players in the world, and at the top of that tree are the majors. To finally get atop one and check the view out for the first time is golden. It’s absolutely beautiful.”

The title match was filled with drama in the final frame as Belmonte delivered three strikes, including a heart-stopping second shot in the 10th when a pin darted across to take out the 10 pin at the last second.

Belmonte’s perfect 10th frame, capping a string of six strikes in a row, forced Malott to match him with three strikes of his own to take the title by one pin. Malott’s first shot barely struck with the 4 pin falling late, but his second shot went high and left the 3-6-10, giving the title to Belmonte.

“Watching that 4 pin fall at first I was like ‘oh no,’ but then I had an overwhelming feeling that if it was meant to be it would be,” said Belmonte, who went undefeated in the double-elimination match-play bracket to earn the top seed for the finals. “It was like the tension just doubled, and there was already a lot of tension. I can assure you the last thing I thought I was going to see was Wes not get the ball to the pocket.”

After the loss, Malott said a distraction caught his eye on the second shot in the 10th and caused him to pull the ball left.

“Someone in the crowd caught me in the 11th frame. I don’t want to say anything against the fans in New Jersey because they’ve been great, and it happened to some other guys during the week, but it’s a bummer, a heart-breaker,” Malott said. “It happened during the biggest tournament of my career, when I had a chance to win, but I’ll take the positives from this week and move forward. That’s all I can do.”

Malott, who entered the day as the No. 3 seed, advanced to the title match with a 202-185 victory over England’s Stuart Williams in the semifinal. Malott took down Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., 255-248, in his first match of the day.

The stepladder finals started with a bang as Bohn opened the first game with the first eight strikes against Koivuniemi in a 278-246 victory.

The Masters, which featured a total prize fund of $325,000, is part of the World Tenpin Bowling Association World Bowling Tour. A sold-out field of 468 players from 13 countries started the week in their quest to take home the trophy.

Australia’s Belmonte Earns Top Berth for Sunday’s USBC Masters Stepladder Finals

Australian two-handed star Jason Belmonte completed a sweep of six three-game matches Saturday at Brunswick Zone Carolier to earn the No. 1 seed for Sunday’s stepladder finals in the United States Bowling Congress Masters.

Belmonte, a five-time Professional Bowlers Association title winner, is seeking his first major championship. He defeated Stuart Williams of England, 750-616, in a contest between the two remaining unbeaten players to complete his perfect record in the double-elimination, match-play bracket. Williams will be the No. 2 seed for Sunday’s ESPN finals, which will air live at 3 p.m. ET.

In his previous matches, Belmonte defeated Brian Ziesig, Levittown, N.Y., 674-646; Dan MacLelland of Canada, 749-711; Hall of Famers Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., 761-685, and Parker Bohn III, Jackson, N.J., 642-632; and Michael Machuga of Erie, Pa., 687-686.

Earlier in the 2012-13 season, Belmonte finished second in the PBA World Championship when he lost to Bohn in the title match, 254-227. A year ago, Belmonte finished third in the U.S. Open at Brunswick Zone Carolier for his previous high finish in a major championship.

“I have unfinished business. I want that major title so bad, but every bowler does,” Belmonte said. “I’m extremely proud of my performances in the big events. I’ve made TV shows in five of the last six majors over the past two seasons. I’ve given myself the opportunities, but I have to put the experiences I’ve had – good and bad – together this time.”

Rounding out Sunday’s ESPN stepladder field will be Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas; Bohn and Finnish native Mika Koivuniemi of Hartland, Mich. Malott won the four-player final elimination match with a 773 series to earn the No. 3 seed for the finals. Bohn was second with 732 and Koivuniemi was third with 704. Machuga shot 692 and was eliminated.

Earlier Saturday, Koivuniemi, the 2000 Masters champion and a two-time PBA Player of the Year, ended Walter Ray Williams’ bid for a record-tying third Masters title in the seventh elimination round, 753-676.

Bohn, who won the 2001 Masters, is hoping to become the seventh player in PBA history – and the first since Norm Duke in 2007-08 – to win two major titles in the same season. Duke won the PBA World Championship and U.S. Open during the 2007-08 campaign.

The Masters, which features a total prize fund of $325,000 including a $50,000 first prize, is also part of the World Tenpin Bowling Association World Bowling Tour.

Hometown Favorite Parker Bohn III Leads Field of Eight Unbeaten Players into Masters Match Play Final Day

Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III from nearby Jackson, N.J., leads a group of eight players who made it through three rounds of matches undefeated Friday at the United States Bowling Congress Masters.

The 33-time PBA Tour titlist and 2001 Masters champion lives just 45 minutes from Brunswick Zone Carolier and used that home-town feel to go 3-0 in the opening rounds of the double-elimination match-play bracket.

A total of 16 players remain in the bracket with eight players undefeated and eight players in the elimination bracket. Another series of matches Saturday will determine the five players who will advance to the live ESPN finals on Sunday at 3 p.m. Eastern.

“When you look at the 16 players who are left, regardless of whom you bowl, all of these guys know what they are doing and know their ball motion well,” said Bohn, who defeated Matt McNiel of Prior Lake, Minn., 700-688, in the third round. “There are no easy matches left.”

Bohn, who won the PBA World Championship in November during the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling IV for his second major title, will take on two-hander Jason Belmonte of Australia in the winners bracket Saturday at 9 a.m. ET. Other winners bracket matches include top qualifier Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, against Manuel Otalora of Colombia; John Janawicz of Winter Haven, Fla., vs. Stuart Williams of England; and Brian Kretzer of Dayton, Ohio, vs. Mike Machuga of Erie, Pa.

Janawicz, a four-time Team USA member, and Otalora, a member of the Colombian national team, are the only non-professional bowlers left in the winners bracket.

“You always have to have confidence you can win, but these guys are the best in the world,” said Janawicz, who blew past Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Okla., 692-555, in his third match. “I have tremendous respect for the guys who do this for a living. It just feels good to be able to come in and compete alongside them.”

Defending champion Mike Fagan of Dallas was eliminated Friday after losing his first two matches. He lost to Malott in the opening round, 770-695, and then fell to Martin Larsen of Sweden, 749-718.

Among the players still alive in the elimination portion of the bracket is Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, who would join Norm Duke and Mike Aulby as the only players to complete the PBA’s Grand Slam with a victory this week. The Grand Slam is made up of the four majors on the PBA Tour - the USBC Masters, PBA Tournament of Champions, U.S. Open and the PBA World Championship.

Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., who also is still alive in the elimination bracket, has a chance to join Aulby as only the second player to win three Masters titles.

The Masters, which features a total prize fund of $325,000 including a $50,000 first prize, is a major event on the PBA Tour and is part of the World Tenpin Bowling Association World Bowling Tour for the third consecutive season.

All rounds of the Masters are being covered live on Xtra Frame, the PBA’s online bowling channel. For more information on the Masters, including live scoring, visit BOWL.com/Masters.

Malott Captures No. 1 Seed as USBC Masters Heads into Double-Elimination Match Play Finals

Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, earned high qualifier honors Thursday at the United States Bowling Congress Masters, and will become the No. 1 seed entering the three-game, double-elimination match play bracket competition starting Friday morning.

Malott finished qualifying with a 15-game total pinfall of 3,518 (234.53 average) to lead the field of 468 of the top bowlers in the world at Brunswick Zone Carolier. The Masters, which features a total prize fund of $325,000, will conclude with the live ESPN finals on Sunday at 3 p.m. Eastern.

In the final round of qualifying, Malott fired his biggest total of the tournament finishing with a five-game tally of 1,247. He had games of 230, 267, 246, 289 and 215 to move into the top spot.

“I haven’t been practicing a lot lately because of my knee injury (a meniscus tear) and today I finally started to feel better physically,” said Malott, who has seven career PBA Tour titles. “It usually takes a day or two to get all the kinks worked out and start feeling good. I also drilled another ball today and that helped.”

Malott leads the field of 63 qualifiers who will join defending champion Mike Fagan of Dallas into the double-elimination match-play bracket. Fagan finished qualifying in 210th place but was guaranteed a spot in the bracket as the reigning champion. As a result of his qualifying finish, he will assume the No. 64 position in the bracket and will face Malott in his opening-round match.

Todd Book of Russells Point, Ohio, finished in second place with 3,501, while Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., took third at 3,498.

Weber and Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, who qualified eighth, are looking to join Mike Aulby and Norm Duke by completing the PBA’s Grand Slam. The Grand Slam is made up of the four majors on the PBA Tour - the USBC Masters, PBA Tournament of Champions, U.S. Open and the PBA National/World Championship.

PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., who qualified 27th, has a chance to join Aulby as only the second player to win three Masters titles.

Bracket play will take place all day Friday and continue until Saturday afternoon when the final five surviving players will advance to Sunday’s live two-hour championship round on ESPN.

The Masters, which features a first-place prize of $50,000, is a major event on the PBA Tour and is part of the World Tenpin Bowling Association World Bowling Tour for the third consecutive season.

All qualifying and match play rounds of the Masters are being covered live on Xtra Frame, the PBA’s online bowling channel. For more information, including live scoring, visit BOWL.com/Masters.

Sean Rash Surges to Top of Leader Board After Two Rounds in USBC Masters Qualifying

Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., surged to the top of the leaderboard Wednesday after two rounds of qualifying at the 2013 United States Bowling Congress Masters.

The 2007 Masters champion has a 10-game pinfall total of 2,381 (238.1 average) to lead a field ­­of 468 of the top bowlers in the world at Brunswick Zone Carolier. The Masters, which features a total prize fund of $325,000, will conclude with the live ESPN finals on Sunday at 3 p.m. Eastern.

Rash put together his second consecutive strong day to start the Masters. After firing 1,218 in Tuesday’s opening round, Rash came back with 1,163 in the second round. He closed out Wednesday’s block with games of 233 and 259 to take the lead.

“The pattern is starting to get flatter and with that the lanes are going to get tougher,” said Rash, who is the reigning Professional Bowlers Association Player of the Year. “Shot making becomes important and spare shooting becomes important. I had a great game plan from practice, I bowled good yesterday and had another good block today.”

With one more round of qualifying to go Thursday, Rash said he will try to gather as much information as possible before the Masters heads to match play.

“I get to bowl on fresh (oil) tomorrow again and most of match play is going to be on fresh,” Rash said. “I want to know as much as possible, and I’m still trying to learn. Tomorrow’s a different day with different ball motions and following different people. I still have to make great shots and fill frames.”

Finland’s Osku Palermaa, who had a share of the lead after the first round, sits in second place with 2,376. Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., sits in third with 2,344, while Tom Daugherty of Wesley Chapel, Fla., is fourth with 2,326.

All competitors will bowl 15 games of qualifying over three days before the field is cut to the top 63 plus defending champion Mike Fagan of Dallas for the double-elimination match-play bracket starting Friday.

The top five players at the conclusion of the bracket competition will compete in the live two-hour championship round on ESPN.

The Masters, which features a first-place prize of $50,000, is a major event on the PBA Tour and is part of the World Tenpin Bowling Association World Bowling Tour for the third consecutive season.

Palermaa, Ciminelli Lead USBC Masters After First Round

A pair of Professional Bowlers Association young stars tied for the first-round lead Tuesday at the 2013 United States Bowling Congress Masters.

Two-hander Osku Palermaa of Finland and left-hander Ryan Ciminelli of Cheektowaga, N.Y., each fired a five-game total of 1,246 (249.5 average) to take the lead after the opening round at Brunswick Zone Carolier.

Palermaa, 29, and Ciminelli, 26, lead a sold-out field of 468 of the best bowlers in the world competing for a piece of the $325,000 prize fund. The finals of the event will be broadcast live on ESPN on Sunday at 3 p.m. Eastern.

Fueled by a strong start with games of 278 and 248, Palermaa closed with 227, 267 and 226 to finish at the top of the leader board.

“I made the right moves, I bowled well but I was also pretty lucky,” said Palermaa, a three-time PBA Tour winner. “With this format, it is good to get ahead early because you don’t have to chase the cut number. From here, it’s just about filling frames.”

Ciminelli surged in the final game, shooting 279 to take a piece of the lead. He started the day with 234, 279, 245 and 209.

“I watched the lefties bowl well on the first squad, so I felt like I had to go out and get a big number,” said Ciminelli, who has one PBA Tour title. “I made the right ball change at the right time today. Now I have to figure out a way to stay in that five-to-10 board zone.”

Rhino Page of Dade City, Fla., sits in third with 1,244, while Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., got off to a strong start with 1,233 to place fourth. Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., rounds out the top five with 1,218.

All competitors will bowl 15 games of qualifying over three days before the field is cut to the top 63 plus defending champion Mike Fagan of Dallas for the double-elimination match-play bracket starting Friday.

The top five players at the conclusion of the bracket competition will compete in the live two-hour championship round on ESPN.

“Man on a Mission” Haugen Tops Norton to Win Third PBA Tour Title in Mark Roth Classic

Michael Haugen Jr. of Carefree, Ariz., was a man on a mission, and survived a battle that wasn’t resolved until the final frame in defeating Scott Norton of Mission Viejo, Calif., 215-194, to win his third Professional Bowlers Association Tour title in the Mark Roth Classic at Thunderbowl Lanes.

The Mark Roth Classic title match, and the PBA League Mark Roth round finals, aired Sunday on ESPN.

Haugen, 46, won both of his previous PBA titles in 2008, but came into the 2012-13 season without the support of a bowling ball company sponsor and felt snubbed because he wasn’t one of the 48 players selected to participate in the new PBA League. He vowed it would take 10 quality shots by Norton to beat him for the Roth title, and Norton fell short, leaving back-to-back 4-6-7-10 splits in the ninth and 10th frames which turned a tight battle into an easy win for Haugen.

“Being able to stay in the moment and make the shot you need to make is very rewarding, and I was able to do that today,” Haugen said. “Scott and I both felt there wasn’t going to be a 250 game on those conditions, so it was a matter of staying clean. I was just very fortunate today that Scott got a couple of bad breaks. You never expect a guy that talented to make shots like that.”

Being overlooked in the inaugural PBA League draft also provided incentive for Haugen.

“I’ve been at this (PBA competition) for 14 years. I’ve made a TV show every year, and done ok in stats, but I didn’t get picked,” he said. “I don’t know why, but that was motivation for me, too. It feels really good.”

Next Sunday, ESPN will air the two-hour live finals of the United States Bowling Congress Masters from Brunswick Zone Carolier in North Brunswick, N.J., starting at 3 p.m. ET.

PBA League coverage continues on Sunday, March 3 at 3 p.m. ET with the title match of the Don Carter Classic between top qualifier Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, and challenger Jason Sterner of McDonough, Ga., and the PBA League Carter round featuring the BROOKLYN STyLES, the New York City WTT KingPins, Chris Hardwick’s Silver Lake Atom Splitters and the team that advances from the Clash eliminator round.

 

Hometown Favorite Motown Muscle Team Wins PBA League Mark Roth Qualifying Round

Motown Muscle anchor bowler Mike Fagan’s nine-count spare and strike in the 10th frame was just enough to salvage a 195-193 victory for hometown favorite Jerome Bettis’ team in the Professional Bowlers Association League’s Mark Roth round at Thunderbowl Lanes, preventing the New York City WTT KingPins from winning back to back titles.

The PBA League Mark Roth round, and the Mark Roth Classic title match, aired Sunday on ESPN.

In the PBA League final match, the KingPins’ Tommy Jones, Pete Weber and anchor bowler Scott Norton put together a string of three strikes to help their team take a one-pin lead after seven frames. After trading open-frame splits in the eighth frame and strikes in the ninth, the match came down to Fagan vs. Norton in the 10th frame.

Fagan’s inability to strike on his first shot gave Norton an opening. Needing a strike on his first shot for the win, Norton left a 3 pin, handing Motown 12 points in the PBA League Elias Cup race. The KingPins earned nine Elias Cup points as runners-up.

“It was good TV,” Fagan grinned of his team’s close call. “I was hoping for a little better performance, but I got what I needed when it counted. I figured I’d take the responsibility (of bowling anchor). I feel good on these lanes. I’ve got a good ball reaction, but maybe I was a little over-aggressive.

“Getting 12 (Elias Cup) points is big. We lost our first match in the Salvino round, but we’re getting a little more comfortable with the TV set and the atmosphere, so we think we can make a run for the Cup.”

After a sluggish start in the semifinal match, the KingPins’ Jones, Weber and Norton also combined for a string of three strikes to clinch a 211-162 victory over Kevin Hart’s Philadelphia Hitmen. The KingPins got help from three Hitmen open frames and they advanced to their second straight title match.

In the opening match, consecutive strikes by Philadelphia’s Mike DeVaney, Bill O’Neill and Mika Koivuniemi, combined with back-to-back opens in the ninth and 10th frames by Jesse Williams’ BROOKLYN STyLES were keys to the Hitmen’s 214-176 victory. DeVaney got the Hitmen into the stepladder finals by surviving the Clash eliminator round.

Next Sunday, ESPN will air the two-hour live finals of the United States Bowling Congress Masters from Brunswick Zone Carolier in North Brunswick, N.J., starting at 3 p.m. ET.

PBA League coverage continues on Sunday, March 3 at 3 p.m. ET with the title match of the Don Carter Classic between top qualifier Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, and challenger Jason Sterner of McDonough, Ga., and the PBA League Carter round featuring the BROOKLYN STyLES, the New York City WTT KingPins, Chris Hardwick’s Silver Lake Atom Splitters and the team that advances from the Clash eliminator round.

Colombia’s Andres Gomez Wins Back-to-Back Carmen Salvino Classic Titles

Colombia native Andres Gomez, who won his first Professional Bowlers Association Tour title in the 2012 Carmen Salvino Classic at age 38, successfully defended his title with a 246-197 victory over top qualifier D.J. Archer of Friendswood, Texas, at Thunderbowl Lanes.

The Salvino Classic, conducted during the PBA Detroit Winter Swing, aired Sunday on ESPN.

Gomez, a long-time international competitor before deciding to become a full-time PBA Tour competitor, started the title match with six strikes and was never seriously challenged in winning his second career PBA Tour title.

“It’s incredible,” Gomez said. “I knew it was going to be a tough match, but I started striking and that was it.

“I don’t know if the second title feels better than the first,” he added. “Everyone says winning the first title is the toughest. I bowled against one of the best in the world (Wes Malott) to win the first time, but this one – because there were only two spots just to get to the TV shows – was very tough as well.”

Archer, who made his second career television appearance, has never won a PBA Tour title. His best previous finish was fourth in the 2004 United States Bowling Congress Masters.

Next Sunday’s 3 p.m. ET ESPN telecast will feature the Mark Roth Classic title match between top qualifiers Michael Haugen Jr. of Carefree, Ariz., and Scott Norton of Mission Viejo, Calif.

 

New York City WTT KingPins Top Philadelphia Hitmen to Win PBA League Salvino Round

Behind consecutive strikes by Tommy Jones, Pete Weber and Scott Norton, Billie Jean King’s New York City WTT KingPins defeated the top qualifying team, Kevin Hart’s Philadelphia Hitmen, 222-198, to win the PBA League Carmen Salvino round at Thunderbowl Lanes.

The second of five rounds of PBA League competition aired Sunday on ESPN.

With their win in the Salvino round, the KingPins (John Szczerbinski, Jack Jurek, Jones, Weber and Norton) earned 12 points toward the Elias Cup finals, which will be held March 31 at Woodland Bowl in Indianapolis. After two events, the KingPins lead Jesse Williams’ BROOKLYN STyLES in the points race, 24-20.

“This was a blast for me,” Weber, the KingPins’ franchise player, said. “There was no choice but to have Scott (Norton) bowl anchor. He was the hottest bowler in the building during the Detroit Winter Swing. And I wanted John (Szczerbinski) to lead off because he’s that good. He showed us where we needed to throw the ball and that’s what we fed off of.”

Szczerbinski is an experienced team competitor as a Team USA member and a former collegiate All-American at Wichita State.

In the semifinal match, Jurek, Jones, Weber and Norton put together a string of four strikes which helped the KingPins topple the hometown-favorite Motown Muscle, 225-192.

In the opening match, Norton struck in the fifth frame and three times in the 10th to lock up a 223-191 win over Terrell Owens’ Dallas Strikers. The Strikers, who finished eighth in the Salvino qualifying round, earned their berth in the stepladder finals when Rhino Page out-lasted a field of 11 in the Clash eliminator, where each player threw one ball and the lowest scoring player was eliminated until only one player remained. Page nipped the Silver Lake Atom Splitters’ Chris Barnes, 10-9, in the final round to win the elimination event.

Next Sunday’s 3 p.m. ET ESPN telecast of the PBA League Mark Roth round will include Jerome Bettis’ Motown Muscle, the KingPins, the BROOKLYN STyLES and the team that survives the Clash eliminator round.
