Jack Jurek Captures Emotional Win in PBA50 Miller High Life Classic For Second Career PBA50 Tour Title

In a tournament he dedicated to his father Jerry, who passed away two weeks ago, Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y. survived an emotional championship match to win the PBA50 Miller High Life Classic presented by Columbia 300 Wednesday at George Pappas’ Victory Lanes.

Jurek also survived an early open in the third frame of the championship match but then roared back with nine consecutive strikes to defeat five-time PBA Tour and two-time PBA50 Tour winner Bob Learn Jr. of Erie, Pa., 264-224. It was Jurek’s second PBA50 Tour title to go along with the two titles he has won on the PBA Tour.

“I think this was the toughest week I’ve ever bowled, but generally I was able to keep my emotions pretty calm” said Jurek. “I can get a little geared up and hyper during a tournament but maybe keeping things in perspective gave me that calm feeling. I don’t know exactly, but this one is definitely for dad.”

Jurek, who qualified second for the stepladder finals, defeated PBA Hall of Famer and three-time PBA50 Tour winner Pete Weber in a back-and-forth semifinal match, 224-200, to advance to the title match.

I was watching Tom (Baker) and Pete and could see they had good looks to the pocket but they weren’t always getting good results,” Jurek said. “I tried to learn from what they were doing, get to a place on the lane where I could get a good ball reaction, not get anxious, and then just do what I was doing all week.”

Weber, who qualified fifth for the finals, won the first two stepladder matches defeating Dennis Rakauskas of Apopka, Fla., in the opening match 268-236, and then fellow Hall of Famer and four-time PBA50 Player of the Year Tom Baker of King, N.C., 193-191 in the second match. Rakauskas was trying for his first PBA50 Tour title and Baker was trying for his 13th which would have moved into second all alone on the all-time PBA50 Tour titles list behind leader John Handegard with 14 wins.

Weber’s third-place finish was a welcome improvement over his first two tournaments of the season where he finished 24th and 44th. Baker’s fourth-place finish came after finishing third in last week’s United Healthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages and 15th in the season-opening Pasco County Florida Open.

The PBA50 Tour heads to Farmingdale Lanes in Farmingdale, N.Y. for the PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open presented by Brunswick May 2-5.

名和 秋が宮崎初制覇!

勝利を掴んだ笑顔の先に涙がこみ上げる 

昨年末のプリンスカップから4ヶ月、待ちに待った女子開幕戦・宮崎プロアマオープン。2日間にわたる予選に4人8組に分かれて行われるブロックラウンドロビン、そしてガチンコ勝負の決勝トーナメントと見どころも満載で、毎年地元の宮崎はもちろん、九州各地からも観客が押し寄せます。

選手達にとってはコンスタントに打てる実力はもちろん必要ですが、運も大きく左右してくる大会と言えるでしょう。予選ではBシフトにシードプロが集中し、各シフト上位16名が準決勝へ進出できるというレギュレーションのなか激戦を極めます。

そんな中、前半ではBシフト17位と次点に着け、予選終了時に西村美紀を1ピン差で上回って準決勝枠を手に入れたのが、2013年のROUND1CupLadiesで9年ぶりの2勝目を挙げた名和 秋でした。

プロ、アマチュアを問わず、「練習すればするほど悪くなる」という低迷期につかまった経験のある方は多いと思われますが、名和いわくは昨年末からずっと、今大会もそんな霧の中を歩く者の一人でした。

9年ぶりのV2から明けて一年は17位タイで終わった宮崎をはじめ、上位陣には名を連ねるのですがファイナルステージには届かず、シードプロ枠は確保したものの名和本人にとっては満足の行かない結果に。

そこで一念発起した名和、正月休みも返上して練習に打ち込み、この開幕戦を迎えましたが、低迷の霧はなかなか名和を離してはくれません。

しかし幸運の女神は名和を贔屓にしたようで、先に書きました通り予選は激戦区のBシフトながら1ピン差で通過。準決勝ブロックラウンドロビンはAシフト1位で好調の岸田有加がいた上に、2勝4敗の戦果ながらベストアマの阪本和江選手に24ピン差でかわして決勝進出を果たします。

ぎりぎりの綱渡り状態で勝ち抜けてきた名和でしたが、決勝トーナメント1回戦の対戦相手が朋友の谷川章子だったことから「仲良しのあっこちゃんに恥ずかしくないゲームをしよう」とスイッチが入り、なんと今大会初の250up。

続く対小泉奈津美の2回戦では小泉の思わぬ自滅もあり、50ピン近い大差で勝利します。

4強が出揃ったところで、279ピンのビッグゲームを連発して勝ち上がった絶好調の阿部聖水、産休復帰から初のファイナルステージとなった丹羽由香梨と、名和を含めて4名中3名が35期の同期生という珍しい状況に。

決勝トーナメント・準決勝第1試合、阿部と名和の対戦は直前のリオイルが響いて阿部が自滅。そして「35期生同士の優勝決定戦になるといい」と3人で語り合ったものの、41期生の平野志帆が7連続ストライクで257ピンを打って丹羽を打倒。ただ一人になってしまった35期生・名和と、初優勝をかけた平野との優勝決定戦となりました。

ここまで不調なりにボールやラインの選択に注意を払い、いつもよりも慎重な投球を心掛けてきたという名和の努力を、幸運の女神はさらに愛でたもうたか。序盤のダブルでリードこそ平野が取りましたが名和もぴったりとその後につき、平野に独走を許しません。さらに勝負どころの8・9フレームでダブルを決めてとうとう名和が逆転。勝敗は10フレームにもつれ込みました。

10フレーム1投目、名和のボールは3・6・10番を残す7本カウント。対する平野がストライクを決めたことで、確実にこれをカバーしなければ敗北がほぼ確定してしまう展開となりましたが、実は今大会、3・6・10番の残りピンを一度もカバー出来なかったという名和。

この絶体絶命の状況に、幸運の女神が降りてきたのか、それとも名和自身の強さが発揮されたのか。ボールは吸い込まれるようにピンを倒し、今大会はじめての3・6・10番カバーを決めました。

しかしまだ勝敗の鍵を握っているのは平野。10フレーム2投目もストライクで繋げれば天秤が大きく傾くという状況でしたが、初の優勝決定戦、プロ入り8年目の初タイトルを目前にして思わず力が入ってしまい、奇しくも名和と同じく3・6・10番を残す7本カウントに。

平野がこれをカバー出来てもMAX217ピンとなり、名和はラスト投球で5本以上倒せば勝利が確定するところを、有終の美を飾るかのように綺麗なストライクで締めくくりました。

多くの声援と朋友達の応援、幸運の女神の寵愛と自身で身に着けた底力。すべてが名和をまた一段と成長させ、宮崎初制覇、そして開幕戦勝利を掴み取らせました!

Mike Scroggins Wins PBA50 UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages In PBA50 Tour Debut

After a nearly year-long absence from top-level competition recovering from foot problems, eight-time PBA Tour winner Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, won the PBA50

UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages presented by Radical Tuesday in his PBA50 Tour debut at Spanish Springs Lanes.

Scroggins, who qualified fifth for the finals, won three consecutive matches before battling fellow lefthander and tournament leader Parker Bohn III in a championship match that went down to the 10th frame.

Bohn, who dominated the tournament and was coming off a win in the season-opening Pasco County Florida Open, threw a strike on the first ball in the 10th frame and then a nine-count and spare forcing Scroggins to get the first two strikes in the 10th. Scroggins got the first two strikes and then a nine-count on the fill ball to beat Bohn 255-246.

“This is one of the best feelings I’ve had in bowling especially after what I’ve been through for the past year,” Scroggins said. “It made it extra special to beat the great bowlers that were in the finals which I felt very fortunate to do.

“I was having good success on the right lane so when Parker left that nine-count, I felt pretty confident I could get the job done,” Scroggins said of the final frame. “I just told myself to relax and throw the kind of shots I’m capable of and I could win it.”

Scroggins suffers from the condition plantar fasciitis, a tendon and ligament disorder in both feet, which put him out of action for more than nine months.

It’s been a long road to recovery and it’s really something that won’t totally go away,” Scroggins said. “It’s something that comes with age and I’m going to continually have to manage it.”

As the fifth qualifier in the stepladder, Scroggins opened with a 231-205 win over PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia who was trying for his ninth PBA50 title. Scroggins then went on to beat two-time PBA50 Player of the Year and eight-time PBA50 Tour winner Ron Mohr 239-227 in the second match before beating Hall of Famer and four-time PBA50 Player of the Year Tom Baker 234-202 in the semifinal match.

The PBA50 Tour heads to Mooresville, N.C., April 26-29 for the Miller High Life Classic presented by Columbia 300 at George Pappas Victory Lanes.

 【PBA】 PBA League Elias Cup

Bass Pro Shops Silver Lake Atom Splitters Repeat as PBA League Elias Cup Champions

Helped greatly by a series of clutch 10th-frame strikes, the Bass Pro Shops Silver Lake Atom Splitters won their second straight Professional Bowlers Association League Elias Cup with an impressive 5-1 decision over the Wheaties L.A. X at Bayside Bowl.

The Elias Cup finals, which aired Sunday on ESPN, concluded the PBA Tour’s first visit to the state of Maine. At the close of the competition – eight days after escaping serious injury in an automobile accident – Silver Lake anchor bowler Dick Allen of Columbia, S.C., was selected as the PBA League’s Mark Roth Most Valuable Player.

Silver Lake opened the multi-event Elias Cup finals with a 223-211 victory by Chris Barnes over L.A. X’s Jason Belmonte in the singles match. Barnes survived a 4-6 split in the third frame and a missed 4 pin in the ninth with a string of five strikes in the middle of his game, followed by two strikes and a nine-count in the 10th frame to win the first point.

L.A. X evened the score at 1-1 when Stuart Williams and Patrick Allen escaped with a 212-211 win in the alternate ball doubles match against Barnes and Mika Koivuniemi. Barnes’ seven-count 4-6-7 split on his final shot proved to be the difference.

The Atom Splitters quickly righted their ship in Baker Trios when Allen, Craig Nidiffer and Tom Daugherty were nearly perfect in posting a 297-246 victory over Belmonte, Andres Gomez and Martin Larsen. A 2-8-10 split on Allen’s final ball in the 10th frame was Silver Lake’s only flaw as it took a 2-1 lead.

With three points at stake in the Baker team finale, Silver Lake again responded. After defeating L.A. X in the 2014 team finale, 225-203, the Atom Splitters rallied from an early 10-pin deficit for a 236-215 victory to retain the Elias Cup. Allen started the come-from-behind victory with a strike in the fifth frame, and capped a string of six straight strikes with the first strike in the 10th frame to ice the title.

“This is definitely the highlight of my career,” the 36-year-old Allen said. “The whole situation of being chosen by (team manager) Mark Baker and Chris (Barnes) and Mika (Koivuniemi) to put me at anchor surprised me a little, but I like that position. They instilled a lot of confidence in me this week. It did a lot of good for me personally.”

Heading into the Elias Cup finals, Allen had made clutch sudden-death roll-off shots to give Silver Lake victories in both the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds despite a stiff, sore neck sustained in his one-car accident the previous Sunday near his home in South Carolina.

“I was coming around a corner, swerved to avoid hitting a dog in the road, and lost control,” he said. “I went into a ditch and hit a pole. I thought I was done for, but I got away with just some whiplash.”

His pain-in-the-neck was one issue, Allen said, but the loud, non-stop chanting and cheering by the Bayside Bowl fans didn’t bother him at all. In fact, it actually made him feel at home.

“The more you bowl on TV, the more loosened up you get,” Allen, a three-time PBA Tour title winner, said, “but the crowd here was highly unexpected. Fortunately I’m used to that because back home, I practice with my buddies after the bowling center closes, and we crank up the music, and my buddies trash-talk non-stop, so bowling here was just like after-hours practice at home.”

Allen admitted the crowd did influence his errant final shot in the Baker trios match, spoiling the team’s bid for a 300.

“The crowd got me,” he grinned. “They had been so loud, but in about my third step, they got quiet. I didn’t expect that. In that little moment, it kinda got me. My fundamentals collapsed.”

The PBA Tour will resume competition May 9-17 when FireLake Bowling Center hosts the preliminary rounds of the Oklahoma Grand Casino Hotel and Resort Summer Swing in Shawnee, Okla. The multi-event competition will include the Wolf, Badger, Bear and Oklahoma Open title events, followed by the King of the Swing special event. All finals will be held in the Grand Casino Event Center and will air on CBS Sports Network. Dates and times will be announced later.

Bohn Defeats Duke to Win PBA50 Pasco County Florida Open For Second Career PBA50 Tour Title

In a title match that featured two of the Professional Bowlers Association’s all-time greats with 72 PBA Tour wins between them, Parker Bohn III defeated fellow Hall of Famer and reigning PBA50 Player of the Year Norm Duke Tuesday in the title match to win the PBA50 Pasco County Florida Open at Lane Glo Bowl in New Port Richey, Fla.

Bohn, a 34-time PBA Tour titlist, won his second PBA50 Tour title by defeating Duke, a 38-time Tour winner, 263-222, in the title match. Duke, who also finished second in the Pasco County Open last season, was trying for his third PBA50 Tour title.

Bohn took the lead early in the match striking in the first three frames and after Duke opened in the second frame he was able to take command for good by throwing seven consecutive strikes to complete the match.

“We’ve bowled against each other many times during our careers,” Bohn said. “Even though I knew I had things pretty well under control heading into the end of the match you can never let up against guys like Norm because if there’s room for them to catch you they will. The strikes I had in the eighth and ninth frame were crucial because they put the pressure on him.”

One of Bohn’s concerns throughout the tournament was dealing with humid conditions that could play havoc with his grip.

“It can be a challenge to get the right feel,” Bohn said. “You can have a situation where you have to squeeze the ball to hold on or go the other way where the ball can hang in your hand. If you have either one of those situations you’re not going to repeat shots. With the help of (Brunswick representative) Chuck Gardner we put a good game plan together with my equipment so then it was just a matter of me standing in the right place and hitting my target.”

Bohn advanced to the championship match by defeating 10-time PBA Tour winner Bryan Goebel of Shawnee, Kan., who was trying for his first PBA50 Tour title, in the semifinal match 247-238.

In the opening stepladder match United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., trying for his third title, defeated Hall of Famer and nine-time PBA50 Tour winner Walter Ray Williams Jr., 255-209.

In the second match Goebel defeated Boresch 227-192 to advance to the semifinal.

The PBA50 Tour travels to Spanish Springs Lanes in The Villages, Fla., April 18-21 for the PBA50 Sun Bowl In The Villages presented by Radical, the second stop of the 2015 season.

 【PBA】 PBA League Elias Cup

Defending Champion Silver Lake Atom Splitters, L.A. X Advance to PBA League Elias Cup Finals

The defending champion Bass Pro Shops Silver Lake Atom Splitters and the Wheaties L.A. X survived an intense semifinal round, capped by two more sudden-death roll-offs, to advance to the third annual Professional Bowlers Association League Elias Cup Finals at Bayside Bowl. The finals will air Sunday (April 19) at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The semifinal round, which aired last Sunday on ESPN, completed a highly-competitive Baker team series at Bayside Bowl which saw all six best-of-two-game elimination matches decided by sudden-death roll-offs.

Bowling in front of a loud, enthusiastic crowd of Maine bowling fans, Silver Lake won a chance to defend its Elias Cup title by rallying to defeat the Concrete Software BROOKLYN STyLES while L.A. X came from behind to edge the HotelPlanner.com Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits.

In the first semifinal match, Silver Lake rolled four strikes out of the gate, but Brooklyn answered with a string of five strikes and clinched a 244-230 victory when Sean Rash and Parker Bohn III put together three strikes in the final two frames. Silver Lake anchor bowler Dick Allen could have given the Atom Splitters a 1-0 lead with a strike on his first shot in the 10th frame, but he left the 1-2-4-6-10 to end his team’s hopes.

In game two, both teams struggled to carry back-to-back strikes. A double by Mika Koivuniemi and Chris Barnes gave Silver Lake a temporary 12-pin lead in the seventh frame, but Craig Nidiffer’s 4-6-10 split helped Brooklyn get back in the game. The match came down to the 10th frame where Allen threw three strikes to lock up a 204-192 decision and send the match into a roll-off where his strike gave Silver Lake the win, 10-9, after Bohn left a 10 pin.

It was a match where Silver Lake manager Mark Baker front-loaded his lineup with proven stars Koivuniemi (15 career titles) and Barnes (18 titles), followed by Nidiffer (no title), Tom Daugherty (one title) and Allen (three titles) because “Mika and Chris throw the ball the straightest,” Baker said. “I thought the lane condition would break down more than it did.”

The surprising lineup put Allen in position to deal with the 10th-frame pressure, but it was situation he embraced.

“In the first game, I picked up the wrong ball,” Allen said of his five-count shot in the 10th frame. “But I got loose and picked up the right ball the next time, and that was the key.

“I knew (the roll-off) shot was good when I let it go,” he added. “I like being in that position. I want to be there. That’s what makes you a better bowler.”

In the second semifinal match, Pittsburgh started with a pair of single-pin spares followed by a string of five strikes, running away with a 234-197 win. But game two also turned into a struggle for both teams to throw back-to-back strikes. The Jack Rabbits filled every frame, but managed only two strikes. L.A. X got the lead when Sweden’s Martin Larsen, Australia’s Jason Belmonte and England’s Stuart Williams threw consecutive strikes in the middle of the game, and held on for a 202-190 decision to send the match into sudden-death.

In the roll-off, Pittsburgh’s Wes Malott (4 pin) and Belmonte (10 pin) bowled first and tied, 9-9. Pittsburgh’s Ryan Ciminelli and L.A. X’s Williams each threw strikes. On the third roll-off shot, Larsen struck and the Jack Rabbits’ Osku Palermaa left a 10 pin to send L.A. X into the Elias Cup finals.

“That’s why you practice hour after hour, and travel so much, and leave your family – for moments like this,” Larsen said. “It’s great when you do it for yourself, but it’s five times more fun when you do it for your team.”

Next Sunday’s Elias Cup title match will consist of singles, alternate-ball doubles and Baker trios matches – each worth one point – and a Baker team match that will be worth three points. If the match ends in a 3-3 tie, the title will be decided in a one-ball sudden-death roll-off.

 【PBA】 PBA League Elias Cup

Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits, L.A. X Win Sudden-Death Roll-Offs to Complete PBA League Semifinal Round Field

The semifinal field for the third annual Professional Bowlers Association League Elias Cup playoffs was completed when the HotelPlanner.com Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits and Wheaties L.A. X won one-ball sudden-death roll-offs before a sold-out crowd at Bayside Bowl.

The final two quarterfinal round matches of PBA League competition aired Sunday on ESPN. With their victories, Pittsburgh and L.A. will join the Concrete Software BROOKLYN STyLES and defending champion Bass Pro Shops Silver Lake Atom Splitters in the semifinal round, which will air next Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Bowling in the 12-lane Bayside Bowl which was converted into a two-lane arena for PBA League competition, fans lined both sides of the lanes, chanting and cheering every shot as both best-of-two-game team matches ended in 1-1 ties, forcing the one-ball roll-offs which were both decided by a single pin.

In the first contest, the Shipyard Brewery Dallas Strikers struck on five of their first six shots and raced away to a 201-168 win as Pittsburgh was unable to roll back-to-back strikes. The Jack Rabbits figured out the lane conditions in game two, however, with Bryon Smith, Dan MacLelland, Ryan Ciminelli, Osku Palermaa and anchor bowler Wes Malott finishing the game with nine consecutive strikes to run away with a 270-208 victory to force the roll-off.

In the roll-off, Malott gave Dallas anchor Shawn Maldonado a chance to win when he left a 10 pin, but Maldonado’s shot was light in the pocket, leaving the 2-5 and handing Pittsburgh a 9-8 victory.

“I got my shot inside a little and fortunately had enough roll on the ball to get nine pins,” Malott said. “It looked to me like Shawn did the same thing and only got eight pins. We were coming off a big game, but you still have to make quality shots in the end.”

Malott and his teammates also embraced the non-stop roar of the crowd.

“Who wouldn’t like it?” he said. “It’s a little different kind of atmosphere, but we could get used to it. When the money’s on the line, it’s still about making shots, but it’s also about having fun with your team. I hope we come back next year and do it again.”

L.A. X had game one in hand in the second match against the Barbasol Motown Muscle, despite both teams having difficulties finding the pocket. Trailing by 11 pins after eight frames, Motown anchor Ronnie Russell was unable to convert Mike DeVaney’s ninth-frame strike into a double to take the lead when he left a 10 pin on his first shot in the 10th frame. Russell converted the spare, forcing L.A. X anchor Jason Belmonte to get a mark for the win, Belmonte left the 2-4-8 and missed the spare to hand Motown a 182-179 win.

Both teams battled for the lead in game two before L.A. X broke it open with back-to-back strikes by Andres Gomez and Martin Larsen. Belmonte’s three strikes in the 10th clinched the 228-192 decision to force the roll-off where Belmonte threw a strike and Russell left a 10 pin.

“In the 10th frame of the first game, my left hand slipped off the ball in my backswing,” Belmonte, a two-handed player, said. “I should have stopped, but I figured we had a second game and if it got down to one shot, I’d redeem myself. When you perform as badly as I did the first time, you’d better make sure when you get a chance to make up for it, you throw the best shot of your life.”

Next Sunday’s Elias Cup semifinal round matches will also be decided in best-of-two-game Baker format team matches. The two winners will advance to the Elias Cup finals on ESPN on Sunday, April 19 at 1 p.m., where the title will be decided in a single, alternate-ball doubles, Baker trios and Baker team competition. The singles, doubles and trios matches each will be worth one point, and the Baker team match will be worth three points.
