Sweden’s Jesper Svensson Wins 2016 George Young PBA High Average Honors

Sweden’s Jesper Svensson continued to add to his portfolio of accomplishments after being confirmed as PBA’s George Young Memorial High Average award winner for the 2016 season after scoring at a 226.07 pace for 324 games.

Svensson, a 21-year-old two-handed left-hander, won the high average race by a fairly impressive 1.32-pin margin over fellow two-handed player Jason Belmonte of Australia, who averaged 225.75 for 364 games. Belmonte won high-average honors in 2013, when he set the PBA record with a 228.81 average, and in 2014 when he scored at a 226.71 pace.

Behind Svensson and Belmonte were E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind. (224.49 for 490 games); England’s Dom Barrett (222.80 for 372 games) and Canada’s Francois Lavoie (222.79 for 330 games).

The PBA also confirmed that Tackett was the organization’s overall 2016 earnings leader with $168,290, followed by Anthony Simonsen of Austin, Texas, at $143,278; Svensson at $138,380; Barrett at $116,890 and PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., at $105,130.

Jesper Svensson Named Sweden’s “Rookie Sportsman of the Year”

A year after earning PBA Rookie of the Year honors, Sweden’s Jesper Svensson received one of his home country’s most prestigious awards when he was recognized as Sweden’s Rookie Sportsman of the Year at the annual Swedish Sports Gala.

Sharing the stage with Olympic gold medal winners from other sports, the 21-year-old two-handed player took center stage during a live nationally-televised black-tie gala to accept the award in front of millions of television viewers. After winning three of his five career PBA titles in 2016, including the 51st PBA FireLake Tournament of Champions, Svensson was chosen by a jury from the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet over football (soccer) player Victor Nilsson Lindelöf, world champion Thai-boxer Patricia Axling and talented skier Ebba Andersson.

The award is presented to a young and upcoming athlete. According to Swedish Bowling Federation reporter Markus Hegnelius, it marked the first time a bowler has received an award at the biggest stage of Swedish sports, bringing tenpin bowling onto the front pages of the newspapers.

Indiana’s E.J. Tackett Goes on Strike Binge to Win DHC PBA Japan Invitational to Kick Off PBA’s 2017 Season

E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind., went on a strike binge early Saturday at Bentencho Grandbowl, sweeping his four stepladder matches including a 259-216 victory over top qualifier Shota Kawazoe of Japan, to win his sixth career Professional Bowlers Association Tour title in the DHC PBA Japan Invitational.

Tackett, who is currently a leading contender for 2016 GEICO Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year, entered the finals as the no. 5 qualifier and defeated Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, 257-205; Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., 259-256, and Jason Sterner of Cocoa, Fla., 235-191, to advance to the title match.

The entire tournament was covered live on PBA’s video streaming service, Xtra Frame.

Tackett, who won four titles in 2016, including his first major in the end-of-season PBA World Championship, bowled his third 300 game of the tournament on Friday to sneak into the stepladder finals by 10 pins. He became his march to the title on Saturday by throwing a string of six strikes in eliminating Barnes, the 2015 DHC PBA Japan Invitational winner.

In the second match, Rash started with six strikes before converting three consecutive single-pin spares. Tackett, after converting two 10 pins early in the match, reeled off seven consecutive strikes to overtake Rash. His seventh strike on his first shot in the 10th frame locked up the win.

A pair of three-strike strings were enough to dispatch Sterner, who didn’t throw back-to-back strikes until the 10th frame, and a string of seven strikes against Kawazoe was more than enough to hold off the Japan PBA star who led the field by 401 pins heading into the championship round.

Along with his title in the PBA’s first tournament of 2017, Tackett earned $43,800.

Next up for the PBA is the State Farm Chris Paul PBA Celebrity Invitational at Lucky Strike LA Live in Los Angeles Tuesday, where Tackett, Barnes, Rash, Tommy Jones and Pete Weber will join the host and Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Red Sox star Mookie Betts among others in a special event to benefit the Chris Paul Family Foundation (the show will air on ESPN on Friday, Feb. 17 at 9 p.m. ET as part of the NBA All-Star weekend), followed by the PBA Super Clash, live on ESPN on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m.

PBA Tour competition resumes with a “Super February” lineup of back-to-back-to back major championships, all of which will air live on ESPN. The series includes the Barbasol PBA Players Championship from Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl, Feb. 7-12; the FireLake PBA Tournament of Champions from FireLake Bowling Center and the FireLake Arena, Feb. 14-19, and the United States Bowling Congress Masters from The Orleans Bowling Center, Feb. 21-26. All three finals air on Sundays at 1 p.m., and preliminary rounds of all three will be live streamed on Xtra Frame.

Xtra Frame subscriptions are available in a variety of packages: three-day ($3.99), 30-day ($7.99) and Xtra Frame Season Ticket (a full-year’s coverage at an average cost of $1.25 per week). Subscriptions are available by visiting xtraframe.tv and clicking on the “subscribe now” link.

Japan’s Shota Kawazoe Earns Top Berth for DHC PBA Japan Invitational Stepladder Finals

Kawazoe finished fifth in the 2016 DHC event for his best finish in PBA competition.

Kawazoe has dominated the PBA Tour’s first tournament of 2017, winning the top berth in the stepladder finals by 401 pins over Sterner. Rash and Barnes – the 2015 DHC PBA Japan Invitational winner - made big moves in the final round to claim the third and fourth spots in the finals. Barnes will meet Tackett, who rolled his third 300 game of the tournament Friday to claim the fifth spot in the finals by 10 pins over Sweden’s Jesper Svensson.

Xtra Frame subscriptions are available in a variety of packages: three-day ($3.99), 30-day ($7.99) and Xtra Frame Season Ticket (a full-year’s coverage at an average cost of $1.25 per week). Subscriptions are available by visiting “xtraframe.tv” and clicking on the “subscribe now” link.

USA Beats “The World” in GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VIII Team Finale

In a five-player team showdown involving top U.S. performers vs. a team of the best international performers during the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VIII presented by Silver Legacy Resort and Casino, the American players claimed bragging rights by beating a talented international squad in the USA vs. The World challenge match to conclude WSOB VIII at the National Bowling Stadium. The team finale aired Sunday on ESPN.

In the non-title special event which concluded the eighth annual World Series, all 10 players earned their way onto their respective teams after a combined 32 games of qualifying in the four animal pattern championships (Cheetah, Chameleon, Scorpion and Shark) that led into the PBA World Championship. The top five U.S. qualifiers represented the USA while the top five international players from the 169-player field earned berths on The World team.

Competing on the 41-foot PBA World Championship lane condition pattern in a best-of-two-game Baker format team match, the USA team of Dick Allen, Columbia, S.C.; Matt O’Grady, South Amboy, N.J.; 2016 Chameleon Championship presented by HotelPlanner.com winner Mitch Beasley, Clarksville, Tenn.; BJ Moore III, Greensburg, Pa., and 2016 PBA World Championship winner EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., took the early lead by defeating The World team, 253-224, in game one.

Undaunted, The World team, with Australia’s Sam Cooley, England’s Dom Barrett, 2016 PBA Shark Championship winner Francois Lavoie of Canada, Mexico’s Arturo Quintero and Sweden’s Martin Larsen came back to win the second game, 223-210, which set up a one-ball sudden-death roll-off to decide the outcome.

The team managers, 18-time PBA champion Tommy Jones for the USA and five-time tour winner Osku Palermaa for the World team, were tasked with choosing the representatives for the roll-off, selecting Allen for the U.S. and Barrett for the World team to go first. The U.S. ended the suspense quickly, however, when Allen struck on the first ball and Barrett countered with a seven-count, leaving the 3-6-10.

“This was basically a team that runs itself,” said Jones. “You have to consider yourself fortunate to have a group of guys like this who have the good chemistry right out of the box. You couldn’t really handpick a better team.”

As leadoff bowler bowling the first and sixth frames of each game in addition to the first sudden-death attempt, Allen struck in every frame he bowled.

“That’s the name of the game, right?,” said Allen, a four-time PBA Tour champion. “I like the team concept because it’s up to you to make the best of every frame you’re called on to bowl in the Baker format. Fortunately, I made the right decisions with my equipment and that enabled me to maximize my contribution to the team effort.”

The USA team shared in a $40,000 first prize while the World team earned $20,000.

The USA team notched its first win in the series after losing to World teams in two previous contests in 2013 and 2011.
