Williams, Weber undefeated at 2015 Senior Masters

Defending champion Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Florida, and top qualifier Pete Weber of St. Ann, Missouri, are among the 16 players in the winners bracket after the first day of match play at the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters.

Also undefeated at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley are 2012 USBC Senior Masters winner Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and a trio of hall of famers, Amleto Monacelli of Aventura, Florida, left-hander Parker Bohn III of Jackson, New Jersey, and Brian Voss of Centennial, Colorado.

In his second match Friday, Williams found himself down 38 pins after two games against fellow USBC Hall of Famer Rick Steelsmith of Wichita, Kansas, but he battled back and sealed the win with a strike on the first shot of his final frame after Steelsmith opened the door with a pair of late opens.

"Rick was bowling a great match, and I told Parker (Bohn III) I'd need a minor miracle if I was going to beat him," said Williams, who outscored Steelsmith 258-201 in the final game and won the match 704-685. "He was a little off the last few frames, and that gave me a chance, which I was able to take advantage of."

Last year's USBC Senior Masters victory also came down to a dramatic finish, in which Williams collapsed the 2-4-5 combination to log a must-have strike in his final frame against Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, New York.

A two-time winner at the USBC Masters (2004 and 2010) as well, the 55-year-old Williams knows success in the unique format sometimes requires a combination of good timing and good fortune, along with great bowling.

"Fortunately, I bowled two great sets today and won them both, but I definitely made some bad shots along the way," Williams said. "I like what I did today, and I made good shots when I needed to. You don't have to bowl the best when it comes to this event, you just need to make the shots at the right time. I feel like I bowled decent yesterday, and better today, which is what you want."

In the opening round, Williams defeated Ted Staikoff of Black Hawk, South Dakota, 715-652.

For Weber, 52, his two wins Friday were just a continuation of the success he's had in Green Bay, which includes leading every round of qualifying on the way to a third-place finish at the 2015 Masters in February and a dominating performance through qualifying this week.

Weber defeated No. 64 seed Bill Sell of Menasha, Wisconsin, 664-616, and then downed southpaw Mark Abraham of Lansing, Michigan, 650-588.

Match play continues Saturday with all 16 winners returning to the lanes at 10 a.m. Eastern. Weber will take on Tracy Teeters of Eugene, Oregon, while Williams faces Robert Brown of Cody, Wyoming. Brown rolled the only 300 game of the week during the second round of qualifying.

The 16 competitors remaining in the elimination bracket also will be back on the lanes Saturday at 10 a.m. Eastern.

All rounds of match play are being broadcast live on BowlTV and will conclude with the stepladder finals Sunday at noon Eastern.

Competitors at the Senior Masters, open to all USBC members age 50 and older, rolled 15 qualifying games over three days before the field was cut from 194 to the top 63, who joined Williams in match play.

The Senior Masters is the first of three USBC tournaments that will take place in Green Bay in the coming week. Senior Masters bowlers are competing for a $16,000 top prize from an estimated prize fund of nearly $115,000.

The Senior Masters will be followed by the International Training and Research Center Super Senior Classic, the premier event for USBC members age 60 and older, and the USBC Senior Championships, which will bring bowlers from across the United States and Canada.

All qualifying and match-play rounds at the Super Senior Classic also will be broadcast live on BowlTV.

Long-Time Doubles Partners Anita Arnett, Tyler Jensen Hold Early Lead in PBA/PWBA Xtra Frame “Luci” Mixed

Former collegiate star Anita Arnett of Richmond, Texas, and partner Tyler Jensen of Fort Worth led the first qualifying squad in the 16th annual PBA-PWBA Xtra Frame Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles tournament Friday at Palace Lanes, averaging a composite 213.56 to pace their 42-team squad with a 3,417 pinfall total.

In second place after the opening squad were Kristin Warzinski of Muskegon, Mich., and Joe Findling, Mesquite, Texas, with a combined eight-game total of 3,272 pins, 145 pins behind the leaders.

Arnett, 32, and Jensen, 31, had never met until they were paired by tournament founder Donna Conners 10 years ago. Arnett, who was known as Anita Manns when she was named 2002 USBC Albert Crowe Star of Tomorrow and won collegiate woman bowler of the year at Wichita State University, is now a pediatric nurse and the married mother of year-and-a-half-old son Mason. Jensen is a regional salesman for Storm Bowling Products, married with a young son.

But 10 years ago they were just two talented young bowlers. “Donna told me I needed to bowl in her tournament, and she told Anita she needed to bowl,” Jensen said, “and then she put us together. We’ve bowled together ever since.”

“We have a blast,” Arnett said. “Our personalities click. We laugh so much.”

“It’s like, wow, we’re done – see you next year,” Jensen laughed.

“We’ve bowled well together,” Arnett added. “We finished second or third one year.”

“Yeah, I can’t remember either. It’s like being married for 10 years and you forget.”

Arnett, said she doesn’t bowl as much as she once did due to her job and family, but is bowling Professional Women’s Bowling Association events when it’s practical. Jensen is a 12-year part-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour player and a regular in regional competition.

Their scores are likely to advance them into Sunday’s 30-team cashers round, but that will depend on how the two additional squads of 42 teams each bowl in their eight-game qualifying rounds on Saturday. Among the teams yet to bowl are three-time winners Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., and partner Shannon Pluhowsky of Dayton, Ohio.

The Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles event was founded in 2000 by Donna Conners as a tribute to her close friend, Luci Bonneau, who died of breast cancer in 1999. Since its inception, the tournament has become the nation’s largest high-profile mixed doubles bowling event, attracting dozens of PBA and PWBA Tour champions while raising in excess of $650,000 in the war against breast cancer.

The tournament, which is being covered live on PBA’s Xtra Frame video-streaming channel, concludes Sunday with the four-game cashers round at 8 a.m., followed by round robin match play at noon CT. The winners will be decided based upon a combined total of 20 games. The winning players, if they are members of their respective pro tours, will earn a PBA Tour or PWBA Tour title in addition to splitting the $15,000 first prize.

Weber top qualifier at 2015 USBC Senior Masters

For the sixth consecutive qualifying round at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley, Pete Weber of St. Ann, Missouri, found his way to the top of the standings, this time earning top qualifier honors at the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters.

The USBC and Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer's streak goes back to the USBC Masters in February, where he led all three rounds of qualifying. This week, he is back in Green Bay and averaged more than 233, while leading a field of 194 USBC members age 50 and older.

The 52-year-old right-hander posted sets of 1,183, 1,155 and 1,163 to earn the No. 1 spot in the event's double-elimination match-play bracket with a 15-game total of 3,501.

USBC and PBA Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli of Aventura, Florida, qualified second with a 3,427 total and was followed by 2012 Senior Masters champion Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Oklahoma (3,426), Pete McCordic of Katy, Texas (3,323) and Sam Ventura of Norwich, New York (3,255).

"Sometimes, you walk into a house knowing you're going to bowl well, and after finishing third in the Masters here in February, I felt that way coming into this week," said Weber, who averaged more than 238 during qualifying at the Masters. "The characteristics of this house just suit my game, and I don't have to do anything special."

Weber will continue his quest for a second USBC Senior Masters title and the $16,000 top prize when match play kicks off Friday at 10 a.m. Eastern. All matches will be three games, with total pins determining the winners.

The left side of the bracket will bowl first, and the right side of the bracket will take the lanes at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

"Now, I just want to make sure I keep throwing the ball well and not worry about my opponents," said Weber, who will take on No. 64 Bill Sell of Menasha, Wisconsin, in the opening round of match play. "If I do what I need to, I'll be happy. If I don't, I won't be happy, and I'll try something different."

Defending champion Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Florida, who was guaranteed a spot in the bracket, qualified 20th with a 3,118 qualifying total. He'll take on No. 45 Ted Staikoff of Black Hawk, South Dakota, in his opening match Friday.

Competitors at the Senior Masters this week rolled 15 qualifying games over three days before the field was cut to the top 63 bowlers, who will join Williams in match play. Sell earned the final spot in the bracket with a 2,962 total, a 197.47 average.

All rounds of qualifying and match play are being broadcast live on BowlTV and will conclude with the stepladder finals Sunday at noon Eastern.

The Senior Masters is the first of three USBC tournaments that will take place in Green Bay in the coming weeks. Senior Masters bowlers are competing for an estimated prize fund of nearly $115,000.

The Senior Masters will be followed by the International Training and Research Center Super Senior Classic, the premier event for USBC members age 60 and older, and the USBC Senior Championships, which will bring bowlers from across the United States and Canada.

All qualifying and match-play rounds at the Super Senior Classic also will be broadcast live on BowlTV.

Weber maintains lead at 2015 USBC Senior Masters

Pete Weber of St. Ann, Missouri, turned in a steady performance Wednesday at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley to maintain his lead at the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters.

The 52-year-old right-hander rolled games of 197, 206, 269, 226 and 257 for a 1,155 total, and his 2,338 two-day effort, a 233.8 average, puts him 84 pins ahead of fellow USBC and Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli of Aventura, Florida, who has toppled 2,254 pins in his first 10 games this week.

Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Oklahoma, the 2012 USBC Senior Masters champion, is third with 2,234, Brian LeClair of Delmar, New York, is fourth with 2,214, and left-hander Mike Dias of Lafayette, Colorado, and Mark Williams of Beaumont, Texas, are tied for fifth with 2,186.

Some might say Weber has a leg up on the competition this week in Green Bay after leading every qualifying round on the way to a third-place finish at the 2015 USBC Masters, which was held in the same bowling center in February, and he agrees that being familiar with the venue certainly is a factor in his continued success in The Badger State.

"I do like the house, and my guesses and ball choices have been good, too, but I also feel like I've been bowling well overall," said Weber, the 2013 Senior Masters winner. "In February, I learned to switch balls quicker when I get to a pair and start getting in trouble. I also remember some of the characteristics of the center, and that has helped."

For Monacelli, experience definitely played a role in Wednesday's success.

The 53-year-old right-hander quickly realized what the fresh 40-foot lane condition was giving him, and he was able to confidently make a move that helped him score until the lanes opened up.

"I had no expectations for today," said Monacelli, who owns 19 PBA Tour titles and four PBA50 victories. "I had an idea, but that's never definite until I go out there and throw the ball. Today, it only took four frames for me to realize I started too far left. I moved right and changed balls and bowled well until I was able to move left to where I was yesterday."

Robert Brown of Cody, Wyoming, rolled the first perfect game of the 2015 Senior Masters during qualifying Wednesday. He finished the day 31st overall with a 2,056 total.

All 194 competitors will be back on the lanes for five more games Thursday as qualifying concludes with squads at noon and 6 p.m. Eastern.

After 15 games, the field will be cut to the top 63 bowlers, who will join defending champion Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Florida, in the double-elimination match-play bracket.

Williams finished the second day in 44th place with a 2,032 total. Should he not make the top 63, he still is guaranteed the No. 64 spot in match play. He is looking to become the first player since Tom Baker of King, North Carolina, in 2007, to win the Senior Masters in consecutive years.

All rounds of qualifying and match play are being broadcast live on BowlTV and will conclude with the stepladder finals Sunday at noon Eastern.

The Senior Masters is open to USBC members age 50 and older and is the first of three USBC tournaments that will take place in Green Bay in the coming weeks. Senior Masters bowlers are competing for a $16,000 top prize.

The Senior Masters will be followed by the International Training and Research Center Super Senior Classic, the premier event for USBC members age 60 and older, and the USBC Senior Championships, which will bring bowlers from across the United States and Canada.

All qualifying and match-play rounds at the Super Senior Classic also will be broadcast live on BowlTV.

大根谷 愛、プロ入り4年目の初タイトル!

喜びと達成感、浮かぶ涙を噛みしめる

本番を迎えた夏の風物詩になりつつあるプロボウリングレディース新人戦。猛暑日の続く外気よりも熱い戦いが本日幕を降ろしました。

女子新人戦はデビューイヤーから5年間、プロ人生の中で5回しか参加できない貴重なタイトルとあって、どの選手も喉から手が出るほど欲しいタイトル。フレッシュななかにも真剣さが光る戦いを見せてくれましたが、今年は特に5月にデビューしたばかりの新人、48期生達の健闘めざましく、多くが今大会をデビュー戦とするなかで決勝進出24名中、実に1/3を占める8名が進出。近い将来には多くのタイトルホルダーを有する「花の48期」と呼ばれる時代が到来するだろうと思わせてくれました。

とはいえやはり数年早くデビューし、多くの大会で荒波に揉まれてきただけあって先輩プロ達の壁は厚く、決勝トーナメント2回戦を突破した48期生はトップ合格者の内藤真裕実、久保田彩花の2名のみ。その内藤と久保田も準々決勝であえなく敗退。

そんな久保田を1ピン差で下した桑藤美樹、渡辺けあきに70ピン近い大差をつけた堀内 綾、大石奈緒との元全日本ナショナルチーム対決を制した山田弥佳、内藤に引導を渡した大根谷 愛ら4強が出揃い、決勝トーナメントは準決勝へと突入しました。

昨年の六甲で念願の初優勝を果たし、ホストプロとしてもこの新人戦タイトルは絶対欲しい桑藤と、44期生で今年が最後のチャンスの堀内による第1試合はほぼ互角のゲーム展開で10フレーム勝負となりましたが、勝負どころでダブルを持ってきた堀内が粘り勝ち。桑藤は惜しい結果に終わったものの、昨日軽い肉離れを起こしてかばいながらの投球でここまで勝ち抜いたことを思えば健闘したと言えるでしょう。

続く第2試合では山田VS大根谷が対戦。こちらはなんとまったくの同ピンでゲームを終え、勝敗の行方はワンショットプレーオフに持ち込まれます。大根谷が先攻してストライクに成功。後攻の山田は8本カウントとなり、大根谷と堀内の優勝決定戦となりました。

2013年大会に2位で終わった大根谷、今季は念願のシードプロ入りを果たし、好調のうちに迎えたラストチャンスの堀内。ともに「これが最後のチャンス」と思いながら、しかも同じ兵庫出身でジュニア時代から切磋琢磨してきた二人の対戦は、特に攻略が難しい左レーンに捕まってしまい、今ひとつスコアを伸ばせません。

さらに大根谷はまだあまり慣れていないTVファイナルでがちがちに緊張したと語り、ゲーム展開や対戦相手を視野に入れる余裕もなかったとのこと。しかしこれが一投一投、目の前のピンにだけ集中するという効果を生み、準決勝最終フレームの7-10スプリットを引きずることもなくノーミスを守ります。

対する堀内も4フレーム目のスプリットをカバーするなど必死に大根谷を追いますが、後半に入ると10番ピンに嫌われてしまい、4連続のテンピンタップ。それでもすべてカバーして我慢のボウリングを続けましたが、ワンマーク差をひっくり返せないまま、大根谷を追い抜くことはできませんでした。

新人戦と相性が良いのか、デビューから出場3回中2回、ファイナルに進出してきた大根谷。3度目の正直となる今年、ようやく念願の初優勝・初タイトルを手に入れました!

 

女子では珍しい両手投げで堂々アマの部優勝!

Weber leads after first day of 2015 USBC Senior Masters

Pete Weber of St. Ann, Missouri, returned to The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley in Green Bay, Wisconsin, both comfortable and confident after his last visit to the 60-lane center, and he set the pace through the first day of qualifying Tuesday at the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters.

The 52-year-old right-hander averaged more than 236 on the way to a 1,183 five-game total, 27 pins better than Ron Mohr of North Las Vegas, Nevada, who finished the opening round with a 1,156 total.

Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Oklahoma, the 2012 USBC Senior Masters winner, is third with 1,149, Mark Williams of Beaumont, Texas, is fourth with 1,136 and five-time Professional Bowlers Association titlist Marc McDowell of nearby Madison, Wisconsin, rounds out the top five with 1,134.

"I had an idea how the lanes were going to play, so I knew what kind of bowling balls and layouts I wanted to bring in," said Weber, who led qualifying and finished third at the 2015 USBC Masters, held at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley in February. "I don't plan on changing anything tomorrow, unless I need to. As long as I feel like I'm throwing the ball well, I won't have to worry about that. I just plan to keep doing what I'm doing."

Weber, who won the Senior Masters in 2013, knows the unique format essentially separates the tournament into two different events - qualifying and the double-elimination match-play bracket.

After 15 games of qualifying over three days, the top 63 bowlers will join defending champion Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Florida, in the bracket. Since all pinfall is dropped after qualifying, just getting there is the first goal for most competitors.

"Naturally, you want be the leader, but the main goal is to make the top 63," said Weber, who has 37 PBA Tour titles and four PBA50 wins. "Then, it's about winning matches and staying in the winners bracket."

Qualifying at the 2015 Senior Masters continues Wednesday with squads at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern. All rounds of qualifying and match play will be broadcast live on BowlTV, concluding with the stepladder finals Aug. 2 at noon Eastern.

This week's event includes 194 USBC members age 50 and older and is the first of three USBC tournaments that will take place in Green Bay in the coming weeks. Senior Masters bowlers are competing for a $16,000 top prize.

Williams finished the first day in a tie for 46th place with a 1,032 total. Should he not make the top 63, he still is guaranteed the No. 64 spot in match play. He is looking to become the first player since Tom Baker of King, North Carolina, in 2007, to win the Senior Masters in consecutive years.

Williams, a USBC and PBA Hall of Famer finished tied for 78th at the Masters in February.

The Senior Masters will be followed by the International Training and Research Center Super Senior Classic, the premier event for USBC members age 60 and older, and the USBC Senior Championships, which will bring bowlers from across the United States and Canada.

All qualifying and match-play rounds at the Super Senior Classic also will be broadcast live on BowlTV.

STEFANIE JOHNSON DOMINATES PWBA WICHITA OPEN TO WIN FIRST TITLE

Stefanie Johnson of Grand Prairie, Texas, dominated the Professional Women's Bowling Association Wichita Open on Saturday, blasting the field in match play and taking the title in the stepladder finals.

Johnson, an 11-time Team USA member, defeated Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey, 247-221, in the championship match at Northrock Lanes to win her first career PWBA title.

Needing a mark and good count in the final frame, Johnson stepped up and delivered a clutch strike to lock up the win.

"After I threw that strike, I was holding back the tears because I knew I still had to make a couple more shots," said Johnson, who was the runner-up at last week's PWBA Lubbock Sports Open. "These are the moments you prepare for and it's amazing to make a good shot when you need one."

Johnson relished the opportunity to be among the first group of champions since the PWBA Tour relaunched this year thanks to support from the bowling industry.

"This is surreal," Johnson said. "This is my generation's tour and to already have a title is incredible. I'm just so excited to have this opportunity."

Leading up to the stepladder finals, the top 16 players bowled 16 games of round-robin match play and Johnson dominated the competition. She went 14-2 in her matches and averaged 234 over the 16 games to earn the top seed by 359 pins.

Kulick entered the stepladder finals as the No. 3 seed and won her opening match against amateur Shannon Sellens of Copiague, New York, 246-172, before defeating Latvia's Diana Zavjalova, 216-206, in the semifinal.

Johnson earned $10,000 for the title and a spot in the season-ending PWBA Tour Championship presented by GoBowling.com, which will be contested in Arlington, Texas, in September.

CALDWELL TOPS QUALIFYING AT PWBA WICHITA OPEN

Propelled by an improved spare-shooting game, Bryanna Caldwell of Red Rock, Arizona, led qualifying Friday at the Professional Women's Bowling Association Wichita Open.

Caldwell had a 12-game qualifying total of 2,689 (224.08 average) to top the field of 106 of the best female bowlers in the world at Northrock Lanes.

The top 16 players in the qualifying standings Friday advanced to Saturday's round-robin match play, which begins at 8:30 a.m. Central. The event concludes with the stepladder finals at 6:30 p.m. Central on Saturday. All rounds are being broadcast live on Xtra Frame.

"The biggest key for me today was that I stayed clean," said Caldwell, a two-time member of Team USA and four-time first-team collegiate All-American at Central Missouri. "At one point today, I had five clean games in a row. That was the one thing I wanted to work on from last week."

Diana Zavjalova of Latvia led most of the day and finished in second place with 2,685, just four pins off the lead. Carolyn Dorin-Ballard of Keller, Texas, took the third position with 2,646, while Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey, was fourth with 2,630. Stefanie Johnson of Grand Prairie, Texas, rounded out the top five with 2,612.

Shannon Sellens of Copigue, New York, was the last player to make the match-play field as she qualified 16th with 2,501 (208.42 average).

The remaining players will bowl 16 games of match play Saturday at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Central. Match play will conclude with a position round to finalize the top four for the stepladder finals.

Parker Bohn III Wins Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open for Second PBA50 Tour Title of the Season

In a title match featuring two PBA Hall of Fame players with a combined 71 titles on the PBA Tour, Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., defeated Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., to win the PBA50 Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open presented by Roto Grip Wednesday to notch his second PBA50 Tour title of the season.

Bohn, who solidified his position as a contender for PBA50 Player of the Year honors, defeated 37-time PBA Tour winner Weber, 259-238, in the championship match which was also his third career PBA50 Tour title.

In the title match, Bohn survived a potentially devastating open in the eighth frame when he left the 2-4-6-7-10 split which he failed to convert after bowling the first seven strikes of the match.

“The ball just hung up in my hand which threw off my push-away,” said Bohn, who has won 34 titles on the PBA Tour. “I wasn’t too worried because I had a pretty good lead at that point and I knew right away what to do to correct it.”

Bohn, who won the season-opening Pasco County Florida Open, did indeed correct the problem throwing strikes in the ninth and the first ball in the 10th which was enough to shut out Weber who was trying for his second win of the season after winning the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open in June.

As the No. 4 qualifier in the finals, Bohn had to win three matches against tough opponents to get to the championship match against Weber who was the No. 1 qualifier.

In the opening match Bohn defeated eight-time PBA50 Tour champion and two-time PBA50 Tour Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, 242-193. In a battle of lefthanders, Bohn defeated eight-time PBA Tour winner and PBA50 Tour rookie Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, who was trying for his third win of the season, 268-216. In the semifinal match Bohn defeated Hall of Famer and 25-time PBA Tour winner Brian Voss of Centennial, Colo., 258-202, who was trying for his first PBA50 Tour win.

“I know it sounds like a cliché but you have to take one game and one tournament at a time, especially at this point in the season,” Bohn said. “When you look at a finals lineup like we had tonight with this much talent, if you even think about thinking too far ahead you’re asking for trouble.”

By winning the title Bohn joined Scroggins, also a Player of the Year contender and leading contender for Rookie of the Year, as the only two-time winners this season.

In addition to the race for PBA Player of the Year, the top eight in points will earn entries into the GEICO World Series of Bowling VII in Reno this December where they will vie for the two championship match spots in the PBA Challenge finals which will be televised by ESPN. Weber, Scroggins, Bohn and Mohr are all presently solidly in the top eight in points.

 

松永裕美が大会2勝目を挙げる!

優勝インタビューでこみ上げる涙

トップアスリートと呼ばれる選手達でも、その歩く道は平坦なものではありません。スポーツ選手なら誰にでも等しく降りかかってくる故障やスランプといった障害に、トップアスリートであるがゆえに寄せられる期待やプレッシャーなど、頂点に登り詰めるために乗り越えなければならないものが多くあります。

JPBAを代表するトッププロの一人、松永裕美にとってそれは”イップス”でした。

ゴルフの世界ではよく名前を聞く”イップス”。それは精神的な要因から起きる運動障害で、自分の思う通りに体を動かせなくなる症状で知られています。

松永はイップスをトーナメント復帰直後の順位戦で極度の緊張からはじめて発症し、以降も出たり治ったりを繰り返してきましたが、今季はグリコセブンティーンアイス杯あたりから発症。アプローチにあがるも投球をやめて引き返してくる姿を見た方は多いのではないでしょうか。

しかしこの六甲クィーンズは松永にとってこれまで8年連続で決勝ラウンドロビン進出を果たし、通算6勝目を挙げた相性の良い大会。イップスの症状が続くなかでもこの大会だけはと心を強くして、予選を2位で通過したところ、今年プロテストに合格し、今大会が公認トーナメントデビューとなる妹弟子の宇山侑花が隣のボックスで健闘していることに励まされ、準決勝では首位を奪取しました。

続く決勝ラウンドロビンでは久しぶりの”松永無双”を見せて首位を守り抜き、トップシードで決勝ステップラダーへと進出します。

そんな松永の背中を追ったのは姫路 麗と時本美津子の二人。時本、姫路ともに予選から着々と順位を上げて次のステージへと上って行く姿は松永と並んで女王と呼ばれるに相応しく、さすがの底力を見せてくれました。

女子プロ最年長優勝記録を自己更新し続ける時本と、史上初のTV生中継パーフェクト達成や最終戦で大どんでん返しのAVGランキング奪取などミラクルメイカーの姫路。両者の戦いは時本が出だしからの4連続ストライクでリードを取ります。

姫路も3フレーム目からダブルで追いましたが、中盤にストライクが決まらず差を詰めることができません。ノーミスこそ守ったものの時本に追いつくこと叶わず、連勝にストップがかかりました。

最年長優勝記録更新をかけた時本と松永による優勝決定戦、トップシードの松永は左レーンでのスタートを選択します。

というのもTV決勝に使用される33・34番レーン、その左の33番レーンがだいたいスプリットなどのミスを「やらかしてしまう」という松永の鬼門。イップス同様にその苦手意識をも克服すべく、あえて33番レーンで10フレームを迎えるよう選択しました。

ボウリングの神様はそんな松永の心意気を買ったのか、松永はターキーでスタート。対する時本は3フレーム目でようやくストライクが来ましたが、松永とのワンマーク差を越えられないままゲームは終盤に差し掛かります。

そして8フレーム目、時本らしからぬ失投でスプリットからオープンに。これで時本の敗北が決まったかと思われましたが、なんと9フレーム目に今度は松永が失投。まさかの10番ピンカバーミスでワンマーク差のまま10フレ勝負に突入します。

先に投げる時本はなんとしてもストライクで繋げたいところでしたが、1投目は9番ピンを残す9本カウント。松永の1投目もこちらは2番ピンを残す9本カウントでしたが、2投目でカバーしたことでほぼ松永の優勝が確定。苦手とする33番レーンでストライクを決めて勝利、とまではなりませんでしたが、自身が抱える弱点を乗り越える、確かな一歩となる優勝を決めました。

三冠女王奪還には出遅れた感もありますが、恩師や仲間達に支えられて、不撓不屈の姿、そしてミラクルをきっと見せてくれることでしょう。今季も最後まで目が離せません!


アマチュア唯一の準決勝進出、総合30位でベストアマ獲得!

SINGAPORE’S TAN WINS PWBA LUBBOCK SPORTS OPEN

Jazreel Tan entered the 2015 Professional Women's Bowling Association Lubbock Sports Open hoping to prove that she and her Team Singapore teammates could compete on the big stage of the PWBA, and she did that with a dominating performance this week at South Plains Lanes.

The 25-year-old right-hander led the event through 12 games of qualifying and 16 games of round-robin match play over two long days, and she topped Team USA member Stefanie Johnson of Grand Prairie, Texas, 257-246, to claim the title and $10,000 top prize.

Tan lived nearly every bowler's dream by stepping up in the final frame with a chance to lock up the win, and she did so, first rolling a 10 pin and then delivering a powerful second strike to seal the victory.

"Things were moving quickly, so I wasn't totally sure of the score, but I knew I needed to get maximum score because Stefanie was striking and bowling well," said Tan, a four-time first-team All-American at Wichita State from 2009-2013. "Every frame was a big frame, and I'm glad that 10 pin fell."

A 6-7 split in the seventh frame, which came after four consecutive strikes, proved to be the undoing for Johnson, who downed Team USA member Danielle McEwan of Stony Point, New York (233-159) and 2011 United States Bowling Congress Queens champion Missy Parkin of Laguna Hills, California (213-158) on the way to the championship match.

Johnson earned $5,000 for the runner-up effort, Parkin finished third for the second consecutive week and pocketed $3,500 and McEwan earned $3,000 for her fourth-place finish.

"Bowling in college in the United States and sharing success with fellow Wichita State players, such as Tannya Roumimper, was a big step forward for international bowlers, but this being on a professional level is another big step," Tan said. "Hopefully, this will open the door for more bowlers from Asia to be able to come here to compete against the best. It's a long and expensive trip for most, but I hope this helps others see the opportunities."

This week, four of the five bowlers from Singapore were among the 16 players who made match play, and the fifth finished 17th. From here, the quintet will head to Wichita, Kansas, for next week's PWBA Wichita Open, before heading home.

The Lubbock Sports Open featured a near-capacity field of 74 competitors, with 16 advancing to match play and 32 taking home prize checks. All rounds were broadcast live on Xtra Frame.

SINGAPORE’S TAN LEADS QUALIFYING AT PWBA LUBBOCK SPORTS OPEN

Jazreel Tan of Singapore took the lead early during qualifying at the Professional Women's Bowling Association Lubbock Sports Open and maintained that momentum to earn top qualifier honors at South Plains Lanes on Friday.

The 25-year-old right-hander averaged more than 224 on the way to a 12-game pinfall of 2,697 and is one of four bowlers from Singapore among the 16 who qualified for match play.

Missy Parkin of Laguna Hills, California, was second overall with a 2,572 total and was followed by Singapore's Shayna Ng (2,564), Josie Earnest of Nashville, Tennessee (2,542) and Danielle McEwan of Stony Point, New York (2,529). Singapore's Cherie Tan and Daphne Tan qualified sixth and 10th, respectively, while Hui Fen New finished 17th.

"I was in a zone today and making the right decisions, and the pins really fell my way during the first block," said Tan, a four-time first-team All-American and two-time collegiate player of the year at Wichita State from 2009-2013. "The lanes are not easy, but I was able to stay ahead of the transition and finish strong."

The top 16 players in the qualifying standings Friday advanced to Saturday's round-robin match play, which begins at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. The event concludes with the stepladder finals at 7:30 p.m. Eastern on Saturday. All rounds are being broadcast live on Xtra Frame, and the winner will take home a top prize of $10,000.

Last week's top qualifier and eventual PWBA Storm Sacramento Open runner-up, Kristina Wendell of Kingston, New York, earned the final spot in match play this week with a 2,425 total, a 202.08 average.

The remaining players will bowl 16 games of match play Saturday at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Eastern. Match play will conclude with a position round to finalize the top four for the stepladder finals.

Tan, who returned home to bowl full-time for Singapore after graduating from Wichita State, and her Team Singapore teammates, are looking to continue their quick success on the PWBA Tour. They plan to compete in next week's PWBA Wichita Open in Wichita, Kansas, and return for the Bowlmor AMF U.S. Women's Open during the first week of September.

"I've only been back to bowl one time since I graduated in 2013, but I always enjoy bowling here and having a chance to see everyone," said Tan, whose last appearance in the United States was for the 2014 United States Bowling Congress Queens. "I think now with the PWBA back, we are excited to be here and show that bowlers from Singapore can compete at this level."

The 2015 PWBA Lubbock Sports Open featured 74 bowlers competing for 32 prize checks. USBC Hall of Famer Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, New York, earned the final prize check, worth $1,200, with a 2,333 total.

Finland’s Osku Palermaa, Singapore’s Joey Yeo Win World Bowling Open Titles in Tokyo

Finland’s Osku Palermaa and Singapore’s Joey Yeo won the men’s and women’s singles titles in the inaugural Bowling World Open Sunday. Each earned an $81,000 first prize in the showcase event contested in a six-lane bowling arena inside Makuhari-Messe Convention Center in suburban Tokyo. The finals were nationally-televised in Japan.

Palermaa, a 31-year-old two-handed player, earned his fifth Professional Bowlers Association title with a 248-224 victory over home-country favorite Isao Yamamoto, a Japan PBA member. Palermaa started the match with seven strikes on his first eight shots to take an insurmountable lead.

Palermaa earned his berth in the championship match by out-striking Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa., 266-255, in the semifinal round while Yamamoto eliminated men’s top qualifier Dom Barrett of England, 256-224.

Yeo used a string of five strikes to overcome a pair of early splits on her way to a thrilling 207-204 victory over top-qualifier Birgit Poppler of Germany in the women’s final. Poppler bowled a clean game, but had only one double after running away with a 258-224 victory over American star Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., in her semifinal match. Yeo ousted Venezuela’s Karen Marcano in the other semifinal match, 234-181.

The Bowling World Open was conducted by World Bowling, the international governing body for tenpin bowling, and supported by the Japan Bowling Congress, National Bowling Federation of Japan, the PBA and other bowling interests around the world in support of World Bowling’s bid to include bowling in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Bowling is one of eight sports in contention for possible inclusion in the 2020 Summer Olympics.

A major championship on the PBA International-World Bowling Tour, the Bowling World Open began with a field of 567 bowlers from 52 countries.

ELYSIA CURRENT WINS PWBA STORM SACRAMENTO OPEN

Elysia Current of Ephrata, Pennsylvania, took advantage of great ball reaction in the stepladder finals and rolled to the title Saturday at the Professional Women's Bowling Association Storm Sacramento Open.

Current defeated top seed Kristina Wendell of Kingston, New York, 246-194, in the championship match before a standing-room only crowd at Steve Cook's Fireside Lanes.

The PWBA Storm Sacramento Open was the first regular-season event on the PWBA Tour in more than a dozen years. The PWBA Tour ceased operations in 2003 and has been rejuvenated this year thanks to the support from the bowling industry.

"This is really amazing because the PWBA Tour folded when I graduated high school and everything I had looked forward to I had to put on hold," Current said. "To come out here and win on the PWBA Tour is seriously a dream come true."

Current entered the stepladder finals as the No. 2 seed and took advantage of her unbeatable ball reaction in the finals. She knocked off Missy Parkin of Laguna Hills, California, 248-233, before defeating Wendell in the championship.

"All I have been working on this week was my mental game because physically I have been throwing the ball well," Current said. "Finally, it all started to click together."

In the opening match of the stepladder finals, Parkin defeated Rocio Restrepo of Louisville, Ohio, 216-202.

Current earned $12,000 for the title and a spot in the season-ending PWBA Tour Championship, which will be contested in Arlington, Texas, in September.

The women’s finalists will be Birgit Poppler, Germany; Joey Yeo, Singapore; Karen Marcano, Venezuela, and 2011 PBA Tournament of Champions winner Kelly Kulick of Union, N.J., who advanced from sixth in the final three qualifying games Saturday to claim the fourth women’s berth.

The finalists were determined during an eight-game qualifying event Saturday at Round1 Minamisuna Bowling Center. In Sunday’s men’s finals, Barrett as top qualifier will bowl No. 4 Yamamoto while No. 2 Palermaa will meet No. 3 O’Neill in the semifinal round. The winners will bowl for the title.

Poppler, as women’s top qualifier, will meet No. 4 Kulick while No. 2 Yeo will bowl No. 3 Marcano in the women’s semifinal round. The winners in both divisions will bowl for the $81,000 women’s top prize on national television in Japan.

Barrett, a four-time PBA Tour title winner, started Saturday’s finals with a 300 game and average 246 for a 1,969 eight-game total to win the men’s top qualifying position by 118 pins over Palermaa, Finland’s two-handed star. Poppler, a member of Germany’s national women’s team, averaged 229 for her eight games, holding off Yeo by 14 pins for the No. 1 berth in the finals. Kulick, the only woman ever to win a PBA Tour title, started her final three-game round with games of 237 and 238 to claim the fourth berth in the finals by 10 pins over Malaysia’s Syaidatul Afifah.

The Bowling World Open, conducted by World Bowling in cooperation with the Japan Bowling Congress and the National Bowling Federation of Japan, is a special showcase designed to promote the sport’s bid to include bowling in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Bowling is one of eight sports in contention for possible inclusion in the 2020 Olympics.

The Bowling World Open is offering the richest prize fund on the World Bowling Tour schedule, including an estimated $81,000 each to the men’s and women’s champions. As a part of its support of the event and the Olympic movement, the PBA will award a PBA Tour title to the men’s champion if he is a PBA member.

Sunday’s finals, along with a special international mixed doubles demonstration event, will be contested on a special six-lane installation in an exhibition hall at the Makuhari-Messe convention center on the outskirts of Tokyo.
