川添奨太、恩師・すみ光保氏に捧げるV!

北の空に勝利の雄叫びを上げる

昨年の福島から場を移し、北海道での開催となった今年の「グリコセブンティーンアイス杯」。

9年ぶりの北海道での公式戦は、パーフェクト2つ、800シリーズも飛び出すハイスコア合戦で大いに観客を沸かせました。

そんな中、800シリーズ達成で首位に立った藤井を見過ごしておけなかったのが川添奨太でした。

今年は三冠王に返り咲くと宣言し、その為には一つでも多くの勝ち星をあげたい川添にとって、昨年末の全日本選手権で大会四連覇を阻止された元ナショナルチーム同輩の藤井は格好の好敵手。しかも今大会、川添と藤井は予選では同ピン、準決勝では同ボックスで投球だった上に目の前で800シリーズまで達成されたとあって、「何が何でもこいつには負けられない」と心に誓います。

さらに川添には先月6日に逝去された恩師・すみ光保氏と「PBAでタイトルを獲る」と交わした約束があり、「PBAタイトルを狙う男がこんなところで負けるわけにはいかない」と勝利への想いは一層強く、準決勝前半3G時点の10位から猛チャージをかけて2位まで浮上。決勝シュートアウトへと駒を進めます。

3年連続の三冠王から一転、昨年は一冠も獲れずに終わった口惜しさを噛みしめ、「負ける怖さを知って弱気になっていては勝てない」と持ち前の強気を奮い立たせた川添は、決勝シュートアウト一回戦、4フレーム目以外すべてストライクを決めて279ピンのビッグゲームを打ち出します。

その後へ鈴木博喜、木村広人を下して藤井が続き、優勝決定戦は全日本選手権の再現に。

今後も強くあり続ける為に「パーフェクトで優勝し、藤井を圧倒したい」と考えた川添は、滑り出しから7フレーム目までストライクを繋げましたが、8フレーム目で10番ピンがタップ。パーフェクトは途切れてしまいます。

対する藤井も4フレーム目にイージーミスを出し川添にリードを許しますが、続く6フレーム目からオールウェーを決めて猛追。デビューイヤーにポイントランキング王を獲った実力を見せつけてくれました。

しかしリベンジを誓う川添は8フレーム目から再びストライクマシーンと化し、こちらもオールウェーで追ってくる藤井を撃退。再び279ピンのビッグゲームで10勝目を掴みます。

今大会はB公認の為ポイントこそ加算されませんが、節目の10勝で準永久シードを獲得、そして三冠王奪還とPBAタイトルへの第一歩、何より恩師・すみ氏への嬉しい報告という大事なものを手に入れました!

 

堂々9位入賞でベストアマ獲得!

吉川朋絵、宮崎に続いて北海道を制する!

恒例?勝利のセブンティーンアイス(いちご)をかじる

パーフェクトなどの記録達成こそなかったものの、地元の北海道でデビュー戦というまれに見るトーナメントデビューを果たした寺下 智香を初めとしてナインコールも多くかかった予選はカットライン221.25AVGという、女子も男子に負けず劣らずのハイスコア合戦となった今大会。

なかでも予選から上位を守った佐藤美香と吉川朋絵が順当に決勝シュートアウトへ進出。準決勝前半で桑藤美樹と姫路 麗が順位を上げますが、姫路が後半で失速する一方、桑藤は後半もスコアをまとめて2位で進出を決めます。

4位を争う阿部聖水と西村美紀の4位争いは、予選からの貯金で逃げ切った阿部が最後の一席を掴みました。

準決勝後に行われたエキシビションの親子チーム大会の和やかな空気が一転して引き締まるなか、9年ぶりの北海道覇者を決める決勝シュートアウトが開始。

ターキーで滑り出した阿部の後を佐藤・桑藤・吉川が続く形でゲームが進行しますが、吉川と佐藤も中盤からストライクを繋げて混戦状態に。

そんな中、自分以外の3名全員が優勝経験者のシードプロという空気に飲まれたか、4名中ただ一人のレフティ・桑藤が8フレーム目でビッグ4を出してしまい脱落。

さらに佐藤も勝負どころの9フレーム目で痛恨のイージーミスで撃沈、7フレーム目からオールウェーを決めた阿部、ノーミスを守った吉川による優勝決定戦となりました。

昨年の第1回大会でわずか5ピン差で涙を呑んだのち、9月のMKチャリティカップで悲願の初優勝を果たした阿部。今季開幕戦の宮崎で、「良い投球をすること」に集中して復活優勝を遂げた吉川。

宿命のライバル・川添と藤井の火花散る激戦となった男子優勝決定戦に続き、実力伯仲の好カードとなった対戦は、吉川が4連続ストライクでスタートする一方、阿部はオープンフレームからのスタートとなり、吉川優勢の展開に。

しかし初優勝で一皮剥けた阿部がこのまま終わる筈もなく、4フレーム目から怒濤のストライクラッシュ。吉川は追い上げてくる阿部に臆することなく、むしろ男子があれだけ盛り上げた後だけに自分たちも見応えのある良いゲームをしようと、中盤にターキーを決めて一歩も引かぬ構えを見せます。

そして吉川のワンマーク差で迎えた終盤、先に投げる吉川がパンチアウトを決めて257ピンで終了。

4フレーム目からここまで狭いラインをタイトに攻め続け7連続ストライクで吉川を追っていた阿部は、10フレーム2投目までストライクを繋げることが優勝の絶対条件となりましたが、1投目の投球はラインをわずかに外し、無情にも9本カウントに。

宮崎では「良い投球をすること」と自分の為のボウリングで勝ち、この北海道では「良いゲームをすること」と対戦相手と見守るすべての人の為のボウリングへと成長した吉川が、今季開幕戦から続く2大会連続優勝を果たしました!

E.J. Tackett Tames Bear, Rolls to No. 1 Berth for PBA Oklahoma Open Finals in Bid for First PBA Tour Title

Professional Bowlers Association 2013 Rookie of the Year E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind., tamed the PBA’s Bear lane condition Thursday afternoon and used that momentum to capture the No. 1 position in the PBA Oklahoma Open stepladder finals Thursday night at FireLake Bowling Center.

Tackett, a 21-year-old in search for his first PBA Tour title, averaged 223.255 for 36 games on the PBA’s Wolf, Bear and Badger lane conditions, and as top qualifier, selected the flat, 40-foot Bear lane condition for the Oklahoma Open finals. The finals in all five Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing events will be contested Saturday and Sunday at the Grand Resort Event Center for telecast on CBS Sports Network beginning June 3.

Tackett, who finished the Oklahoma Open with a 36-game total of 8,367 pins, including 330 bonus pins for winning 11 of his 18 matches. It’s the first time he has led a traditional PBA Tour event, although he was the leading qualifier in the United States Bowling Congress Masters – a double-elimination match play tournament – earlier in the year before losing to reigning PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte in the title match, 221-177.

Also advancing to the Oklahoma Open stepladder finals were Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio, with 8,358 pins; Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa., with an 8,307 total; Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., with 8,297 pins, and Belmonte, who rallied from seventh place in the final game to qualify fifth with 8,257 pins.

“I think the only lane condition I’ve bowled on that was more difficult than the Bear pattern today was in the U.S. Open,” Tackett said. “I don’t know why I bowled better than the other guys. I don’t think I threw the ball that much better than anyone. I think my bowling ball just matched up with the condition better.

“It feels really good to lead the field,” Tackett continued. “The only way to learn how to deal with the pressure of bowling for a title is to put yourself in position to win, so I’ll try to do what I did today – stay positive and make good shots.

“I watched my performance in the Masters finals a couple of times,” he added. “I started okay, but I didn’t make moves fast enough. It comes with experience. The Masters was mine to win. Belmo got a couple of breaks, but he made shots when he had to and I didn’t. I didn’t beat myself up over losing, but we’ll see what happens this time.”

Bill O’Neill Fixes Flaw, Earns Top Qualifying Berth for PBA Badger Open Finals in Torrid Final Round

Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa., charged out of 11th place Wednesday night to capture the top qualifying berth for Saturday’s finals in the Professional Bowlers Association’s Badger Open at FireLake Bowling Center in a battle that saw the top five players separated by only 18 pins, and defending champion Jake Peters eliminated from the stepladder finals by another three pins.

O’Neill, a four-time PBA Tour champion, averaged 230.33 to finish the 12-game Badger Open qualifying rounds with 2,764 pins, winning the top spot in the stepladder finals by two pins over PBA Hall of Famer and 37-time champion Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo. PBA rookie Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., who joined the PBA the week before Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing started, qualified third with a 2.761 total – one pin behind Weber. Two-handed player Brian Valenta of Lockport, Ill., qualified for his first PBA television show in fourth place with 2,750 pins, and 13-time PBA Tour winner Mika Koivuniemi, a Finnish native now living in Hartland, Mich., fired a 257 final game to nip Peters for the fifth spot in the finals.

“If you don’t like matches being close and games coming down to final frame, you’re in the wrong business,” O’Neill said. “That’s why we do what we do. If you lead by 100 pins, when it’s over, it’s over; it’s kind of anticlimactic. When it’s tight like this was and you lead, there’s no better feeling.”

O’Neill, who has admittedly been in a funk over the past couple of years, said he discovered a flaw in his game only a couple of weeks ago, and that was the difference here.

“On my fourth step in my delivery, I was drifting to the right instead of going straight,” he said, “so my arm swing was going off to the right which means the ball could go either direction. When I straightened out my fourth step, the ball fell right into place. Now if I throw a bad shot, I know exactly what to do to fix it.”

Earlier Wednesday, with a big first round in the Badger Open, Tom Daugherty of Wesley Chapel, Fla., led the field of 18 players who qualified for the Oklahoma Open based on combined six-game rounds in the Wolf, Bear and Badger Opens. Three rounds of match play in the Oklahoma Open will be contested Thursday at 10 a.m., 2 and 6:30 p.m. at FireLake with the top five advancing to the stepladder finals Sunday at noon at the Grand Events Center.

After a total of 36 games, the 18 Oklahoma Open match play finalists will be reduced to the top five for the Oklahoma Open finals Sunday at noon at the Grand Event Center. In leading the Oklahoma Open field, Daugherty averaged 227.33 across the three “animal” lane conditions for a 4,092 total. O'Neill, who also qualified third for the Bear Open finals, is second with 4,088 pins followed by Mike Fagan, Ft. Worth, Texas, at 4,069; Bear Open qualifying leader Tommy Jones, Simpsonville, S.C., at 4,054, and Koivuniemi with 4,031 pins.

Fast Start Helps England’s Williams Take PBA Badger Open Lead; Daugherty Leads Oklahoma Open Field

England’s Stuart Williams rolled 268 and 269 games out of the starting block and held on for the first round lead in the Professional Bowlers Association’s Badger Open at FireLake Bowling Center Wednesday.

Williams, the first English bowler to win a PBA Tour title (2011 Viper Open during PBA World Series of Bowling III), averaged 238.67 for six games on the long 52-foot Badger lane conditioning pattern for a 1,432 pinfall total and an 11-pin lead over Tom Daugherty of Wesley Chapel, Fla., into Wednesday evening’s second qualifying round.

With his big Badger round, Daugherty led the field of 18 players who qualified for the Oklahoma Open, based on their three six-game rounds in the Wolf, Bear and Badger Opens. Three rounds of match play in the Oklahoma Open will be contested Thursday at FireLake with the top five advancing to the stepladder finals Sunday at noon at the Grand Events Center.

“I had 60 clean frames today. That was a novelty,” Williams said after his round.

Williams said he came into Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing with bittersweet emotions. He had just learned of his election into the UK Tenpin Hall of Fame (induction ceremonies will be held in October), and he and wife Tina (Stickney), a former collegiate star for Texas A&M, had just returned from England where they had planned a second wedding ceremony on behalf of Williams’ ailing grandmother, who was unable to travel to the U.S. for the couple’s original wedding last year. But Williams’ 89-year-old grandmother died before the ceremony could be held.

“I had very little practice because of that, but I won a local tournament on this same lane condition in Tucson which gave me some confidence knowing moves I was going to make here,” he said. “I’d really like to win my second title. There are a lot of people who have won one title; there aren’t so many who have more than one. You want to prove it wasn’t a fluke.”

The top 18 players in the Badger Open advanced to the second qualifying round at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Behind Williams and Daugherty were Brian Valenta, Lockport, Ill.; Anthony Lavery-Spahr, Pasadena, Texas, and Marshall Kent, Yakima, Wash., all tied at 1,402. The top five after 12 games will compete for the Badger Open title Saturday on the special lane installation at the Grand Event Center.

The top 18 players based on combined six-game qualifying totals from the Wolf, Bear and Badger Opens also advanced to the Oklahoma Open match play rounds Thursday at 10 a.m., 2 and 6:30 p.m. The top five players based upon a total of 36 games, including match play bonus pins, will bowl for the Oklahoma Open title Sunday at the Grand Event Center. Daugherty averaged 227.33 across the three lane conditions for a 4,092 total. Bill O'Neill, Langhorne, Pa., was second with 4,088 pins followed by Mike Fagan, Ft. Worth, Texas, at 4,069; Bear Open qualifying leader Tommy Jones, Simpsonville, S.C., at 4,054, and Mika Koivuniemi, Hartland, Mich., with 4,031 pins.

Tommy Jones Wins Top Rung for PBA Bear Open Stepladder Finals, Eager to End U.S. Title Drought

One day after missing the stepladder finals of the PBA Wolf Open by four pins, 14-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour champion Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., raced away with the top qualifying berth for the finals of the PBA Bear Open at FireLake Bowling Center Tuesday.

Jones, who hasn’t won a PBA Tour title on American soil since the 2008 GEICO Championship in West Babylon, N.Y., averaged 220.5 for 12 games on the most difficult of the Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing lane conditioning patterns, a flat 40-foot condition that is almost identical to the U.S. Open lane oiling pattern. Jones finished with a 2,646 pinfall total to top No. 2 qualifier Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa., by 24 pins.

Also advancing to the Bear Open stepladder finals Saturday will be No. 3 Ronnie Russell of Marion, Ind., with 2,620 pins; Rhino Page of Dad City, Fla., with 2,608 pins and No. 5 Dick Allen of Columbia, S.C., with a 2,606 total. The Bear Open finals will be contested at 2:30 p.m. CT on the special lane installation at the Grand Event Center. The finals will air on CBS Sports Network on Tuesday, June 10, at 7 p.m. ET.

Pacing the Bear field was a bit of redemption for Jones after Monday’s disappointment.

“It wasn’t the finish that bothered me as much as I threw a couple of shots into the gutter and missed the TV show by four pins,” he said. “Leaving those pins out there is what leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.”

Jones also is aware it’s been six years since he has won a title in the U.S. He has won three PBA International Tour events since then, but overcoming hip and neck injuries over the past five-or-so years has been frustrating.

“To win in the U.S. is definitely a goal, and to go in feeling healthy is a good thing,” he added. “Some of my problems have been bad bowling and some of it has been being overly cautious about my health issues. But so far this week, everything’s been good.”

The Bear Open is the second of five events that compose Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing. All five events will be televised on CBS Sports Network on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. ET, beginning with the Wolf Open on June 3.

The Bear Open also was the second of three qualifying legs in determining the field of 18 who will advance to the round-robin match play segment of the Oklahoma Open. After 12 of 18 qualifying games, the top five were Dom Barrett, England, 2,744; Jones, 2,741; Mike Fagan, Ft. Worth, Texas, 2,737; Bill O'Neill, Langhorne, Pa., 2,722, and Chris Barnes, Double Oak, Texas, 2,721. The first six games in Wednesday’s Badger Open will determine the Oklahoma Open match play finalists.

The Badger Open, which features a 52-foot lane conditioning pattern, gets underway Wednesday when Squad A bowls six qualifying games at 8 a.m. followed by Squad B at 2 p.m. The top 18 after six games advance to an additional six-game qualifying round at 7:30 p.m. to determine the five Badger Open stepladder finalists.

All preliminary rounds of the PBA Wolf, Bear and Badger Opens, plus match play rounds of the Oklahoma Open (Thursday and Friday) are being covered live on PBA’s online bowling channel, Xtra Frame.

Tom Smallwood Averages 229.8 to Lead Opening Round of PBA Bear Open Qualifying

Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich., led a group of power players who dominated the first-round in the PBA Bear Open Tuesday at FireLake Bowling Center, averaging 229.83 for six games on the flat 40-foot Bear lane conditioning pattern for a 1,379 pinfall total and a 22-pin lead over Dick Allen of Columbia, S.C., among the 18 players who advanced to Tuesday night’s second qualifying round.

After six more games, the top five will advance to the Bear Open stepladder finals which will be contested Saturday at 2:30 p.m. CT on the special lane installation at the Grand Event Center. CBS Sports Network will air the Bear Open finals on Tuesday, June 10, at 7 p.m. ET. Going into Tuesday night’s round, Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., was third with 1,344 pins followed by Tom Daugherty of Wesley Chapel, Fla., with 1,342 pins. Ronnie Russell of Marion, Ind., and John Ferraro, the son of PBA Hall of Famer Dave Ferraro, were tied for fifth with 1,334 totals.

The Bear Open is the second of five events that compose Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing. All five events (Wolf, Bear, Badger and Oklahoma Opens plus the Grand Casino Resort King of the Swing) will air on CBS Sports Network on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. ET, beginning with the Wolf Open finals on June 3.

The Bear Open also was the second of three qualifying legs in determining the field of 18 match play finalists for the Oklahoma Open. After 12 of 18 games, the top five were Dom Barrett, England, 2,744; Jones, 2,741; Mike Fagan, Ft. Worth, Texas, 2,737; Bill O'Neill, Langhorne, Pa., 2,722, and Chris Barnes, Double Oak, Texas, 2,721. The first six games in Wednesday’s Badger Open will determine the match play finalists.

Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing continues with the PBA Badger Open on a long 52-foot lane condition Wednesday. Squad A will bowl six qualifying games at 8 a.m. and Squad B will bowl at 2 p.m. The top 18 players will bowl an additional six-game qualifying round at 7:30 p.m. to determine the Badger Open stepladder finalists.

Chris Barnes Earns Top Berth for Wolf Open Finals in Opening Event of Grand Casino PBA Summer Swing

After averaging 256.5 for his first six qualifying games, Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, started Monday night’s final qualifying round in the Professional Bowlers Association’s Wolf Open at FireLake Bowling Center with a 279 game and never looked back in earning the top berth for Saturday’s stepladder finals.

Barnes, a 17-time PBA Tour title-winner, completed the 12-game qualifying portion of the Wolf Open with an overall 249 average and 2,989 pins to win the top spot in the finals by 136 pins over Mike Fagan of Fort Worth, Texas. In 12 games, Barnes had only one open frame – a split he failed to convert in the ninth frame of his final game.

Also advancing to the stepladder finals will be Sweden’s Martin Larsen in third place with 2,838 pins, Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., in fourth with a 2,835 total and defending Wolf Open winner Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio. Loschetter rallied to make it into the 18-player second-round field by five pins and then finished the second round with back-to-back 257-258 games to win the fifth seat in the finals by four pins over Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C.

The Wolf Open is the first of five events that comprise Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing. All five events (Wolf, Bear, Badger and Oklahoma Opens plus the Grand Casino Resort King of the Swing) will be televised by CBS Sports Network on consecutive Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. ET, beginning with the Wolf Open finals on June 3.

“I had a strong enough ball to control the gutter shot, and I took some of the patchy spots out of play,” Barnes said. “I didn’t have nearly as much difference in ball reaction from pair to pair as the other guys had.

“Last year (in Milwaukee) I made some mistakes and I didn’t use my equipment to my advantage,” he added. “This year I came into the Wolf Open more determined to stay in control of the pocket rather than worry about my pin carry, and it worked out.”

Barnes finished 17th in last year’s Wolf Open, the worst of his five 2013 Summer Swing events, and he won the Milwaukee Open – last year’s version of this year’s Oklahoma Open – with a 246-237 decision over Norm Duke in the title match.

Former major league pitching star John Burkett of Southlake, Texas, finished 91st in his first PBA Tour appearance since 2007. Burkett, 49, is preparing for his debut in PBA50 Tour competition in 2015.

Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing continues Tuesday with the PBA Bear Open on a demanding U.S. Open-type flat 40-foot lane condition. Squad B will bowl six qualifying games at 8 a.m. and Squad A will bowl at 2 p.m. The top 18 players will bowl an additional six-game qualifying round at 7:30 p.m. to determine the Bear Open stepladder finalists.

All preliminary rounds of the PBA Wolf, Bear (Tuesday) and Badger (Wednesday) Opens, plus match play rounds of the Oklahoma Open (Thursday and Friday) will be covered live on PBA’s online bowling channel, Xtra Frame.

Chris Barnes Takes First Round Lead in Wolf Open as Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing Begins

Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, trying for his 18th Professional Bowlers Association title, averaged 256.5 Monday afternoon to take a 48-pin lead over Mike Fagan of Fort Worth, Texas, after the first round of the PBA Wolf Open at FireLake Bowling Center.

Barnes, behind games of 255, 289, 257, 225, 269 and 244 for a six-game total of 1,539 pins, led a field of 18 qualifiers into Monday night’s second qualifying round on the 32-foot Wolf lane conditioning pattern. Total pinfall after 12 games will determine the top five who will compete for the Wolf Open title Saturday on a special lane installation at the Grand Event Center.

The Wolf Open is the first of five events that comprise Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing. All five events (Wolf, Bear, Badger and Oklahoma Opens plus the Grand Casino Resort King of the Swing) will be televised by CBS Sports Network on consecutive Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. ET, beginning with the Wolf Open finals on June 3.

“I had a strong enough ball to control the gutter shot, and I took some of the patchy spots out of play,” Barnes said. “I didn’t have nearly as much difference in ball reaction from pair to pair as the other guys had.

“It’s a sprint in six games,” he added. “Last year (in Milwaukee) I made some mistakes and I didn’t use my equipment to my advantage. This year I came into the Wolf Open more determined to stay in control of the pocket rather than worry about creating too much angle and worrying about my pin carry.”

Barnes finished 17th in last year’s Wolf Open, the worst of his five 2013 Summer Swing events. He won the Milwaukee Open, last year’s version of the re-named Oklahoma Open, with a 246-237 decision over Norm Duke in the title match.

Fagan, who is trying for his fifth title and first since winning the 2012 Brunswick Euro Challenge in France, averaged 248.5 for his six games, but wasn’t excited.

“Right now I’m just another casher,” Fagan said. “I need to stay focused and continue doing what I’m doing in the second round.”

Other players in the top five heading into Monday night’s second round were Ryan Shafer of Horseheads, N..Y., who had one of the three 300 games bowled in the opening round; Dom Barrett of England, and Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill.

Shannon O’Keefe of Arlington, Texas, one of four women bowling in the Summer Swing, advanced to round two in 15th place. Defending Wolf Open champion Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio, advanced in a tie for 16th. Former major league pitcher John Burkett of Southlake, Texas, failed to advance, finishing 91st in his first PBA Tour appearance since 2007.

Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Resort PBA Summer Swing continues Tuesday with the PBA Bear Open on a demanding U.S. Open-type flat 40-foot lane condition. Squad B will bowl six qualifying games at 8 a.m. and Squad A will bowl at 2 p.m. The top 18 players will bowl an additional six-game qualifying round at 7:30 p.m. to determine the Bear Open stepladder finalists.

The first six games on each of the three animal patterns will determine the 18 players who will advance to the Oklahoma Open match play rounds. The King of the Swing field will consist of the Wolf, Bear, Badger and Oklahoma Open winners plus the highest player in points without winning one of the four events.

松永裕美、プロの部優勝!

5/10(土)・11(日)の二日間にわたり、承認大会・2014沖縄オープンサラダカップがサラダボウルにて開催されました。

今年は初の試みとして小中高ジュニア大会が本大会に先駆けて開催され、各部門表彰の他、総合優勝者は本大会予選への出場権が与えられ、高校2年生の上原朋久選手が4Gトータル885ピンのぶっちぎりで優勝。本大会でも活躍を見せてくれました。

地元沖縄の熱い声援を背負い、2012年大会以来2度目の優勝決定戦に臨んだ宮城、ゲーム中盤までほぼ互角の戦いを見せましたが8フレーム目で痛恨のスプリット。中盤から4連続ストライクに成功した松永が一気に抜き去り、26ピン差で宮城を下して4年ぶりの沖縄制覇となりました。
