England’s Stuart Williams Wins FloBowling PBA Tulsa Open For Second Go Bowling! PBA Tour Title

by Jerry Schneider October 20, 2018 14:44

     

OWASSO, Okla. (Oct. 20, 2018) – Stuart Williams of England won all four matches and averaged 251 in the stepladder finals to win the FloBowling PBA Tulsa Open Saturday, the pinnacle event of the FloBowling PBA Fall Swing at The Lanes at Coffee Creek.

In a stepladder final that featured a dual lane condition pattern –  PBA 39-foot Bear condition on the left lane and 33-foot Wolf condition on the right lane – Williams beat two-time Go Bowling! PBA Tour winner and finals top qualifier Andrew Anderson of Holly, Mich., 237-215, in the title match for his second career title and the $30,000 first prize.

Williams, the No. 4 qualifier for the finals, was in control from the start when Anderson, the 2018 USBC Masters champion, opened in the first two frames after leaving splits.

“Bowling on two different conditions in the finals it was important to go with ball choices that I felt the most confident in and commit to those choices,”  the 37-year-old Williams said. “I was fortunate that I was able to stay with the same balls and game plan for all four matches and that really confirmed I made the right decisions.

“On the longer condition I wanted to throw slower and use a release where my hand came more around the ball. For the shorter condition, I concentrated on keeping my ball speed up and getting the ball to roll more end over end.”

The win was William’s first title since winning the 2012 PBA Viper Open. This season he has had best finishes of second in the WBT/PBA World Bowling Tour Thailand and fourth in the Brunswick Euro Challenge.

“It’s nice to get another win here in the States,” Williams said. “It almost seems worse having one title than none. There’s a kind of validation when you win your second title, especially when you win in a tournament as difficult as this one is. It gets kind of frustrating when people say ‘your time will come’ and you’re still hanging there with one win.”

Live streamed on Xtra Frame on FloBowling, Williams started the stepladder finals with a 236-227 win over No. 5 qualifier Kris Prather of Plainfield, Ill., who finished third in the Wolf and Bear Opens earlier in the Fall Swing. Williams then beat Wolf Open winner 2016 PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett of Bluffton, Ind., 245-212, in the second match to advance to the semifinal.

In the semifinal, Williams beat fellow Englander Richie Teece, who was trying for his second tour win, 288-203, to advance to the title match against Anderson. In the 288 game, Williams fired the first 10 strikes before leaving the 6-10 on the 11th shot.

In the two other Fall Swing events, Williams finished 31st in the Wolf Open and second in the Bear Open which led up to the Tulsa Open.

Tackett’s win in the Bear Open made him the season’s first three-time winner and a leading contender for PBA Player of the Year going into the U.S. Open at Northrock Lanes in Wichita, Kan. Oct. 24-31, which concludes the season.

It was also a productive week for Anderson, another player of the year candidate, finishing fourth in the Bear Open and second in the Wolf Open in addition to his runner-up finish in the Tulsa Open. Teece finished fifth in the Bear Open and 43rd in the Wolf Open.

To get the Tulsa Open stepladder finals, the players had to first make the top 18 after 24 games of qualifying in the Wolf and Bear events and then compete in three six-game rounds of round robin match play which also used the dual lane condition.

Different Lane Conditions Putting Players to the Test in FloBowling PBA Tulsa Open After First Day of Match Play

by Jerry Schneider October 19, 2018 16:31

OWASSO, Okla. (Oct. 19, 2018) – Bowling on two different lane conditions on the same pair of lanes, England’s Richie Teece put together a 9-3 record and averaged 232 for 12 games to lead after the first day of match play Friday in the FloBowling PBA Tulsa Open at The Lanes at Coffee Creek.

Bowling on the PBA 39-foot Bear Open lane condition on the left lane and 33-foot Wolf condition on the right lane in each match, the 18 players in the match play field are having to call on all of their experience, as well as consulting with their ball reps, to make the right ball choices and develop their strategy for lane play. Almost without exception the players are using a different ball and playing entirely different lines on each lane.

To get to this point in the tournament, the 18 finalists were the top scorers after two rounds (24 games) of qualifying in the Wolf and Bear Opens – the first two events of the FloBowling PBA Fall Swing – but bowled on the same lane condition throughout qualifying in those tournaments.

Teece, who finished fifth in the Bear Open and 43rd in the Wolf Open, figured out the right combination in Friday’s first match play round going 6-0, highlighted by the fourth match where he beat Sean Rash, 300-201.

“My strategy is to keep it simple,” Teece said. “I’m using two balls that I’m confident in for each lane and making the adjustments from there. For me, too many options will only lead to confusion.

“I was fortunate to get good starts in the first three matches,” he added. “In the 300 game I actually threw a Brooklyn (crossover strike) on the first ball on the left lane but after doing that it was a pretty good learning experience for me on what I needed to do to adjust.

“In the second round I only won three matches but I bowled well. I concentrated more on the mental part of staying focused, keeping my composure and remembering we have six more games left to bowl.”

Four-time and reigning PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte of Australia, who was 15th after the first match play round but now sits in fifth after posting a 7-5 record and averaging 226 for the day, explained his mindset entering match play.

“As far as strategy is concerned you really have to develop a split personality,” said Belmonte who has two wins this season. “You have to be one guy on one lane and another guy on the other lane.

“It’s not like bowling on the same pattern where you can get a rhythm and then repeat shots pretty quickly,” the two-hander added. “You can get lined up on one lane but that puts added pressure on you to strike on the other lane and that can make it difficult to execute the needed repetition.

“Getting that rhythm has been difficult because with my ball motion I couldn’t string strikes and I’ve left a lot of splits,” Belmonte continued. “For the most part I’ve been guessing wrong until today’s second round. I think I’ve been too tricky and creative with my moves when I didn’t have to be.”

EJ Tackett of Bluffton, Ind., who won the Bear Open Thursday to become the first three-time winner this season on the Go Bowling! PBA Tour, finished the day in second. He posted a 7-5 match play record and averaged 214 in Friday’s match play.

“The key for me has been to isolate and focus on each lane and not think too far ahead,” the 2016 PBA Player of the Year said. “The further you go in the tournament it seems like the differences are magnified. You kind of have to treat each lane as if you’re bowling a totally different round.”

The final Tulsa Open match play round gets underway Saturday morning at 9 a.m. CT which will determine the top five players for the Tulsa Open stepladder finals at 12:30 p.m. The finals also will require the players to bowl on the Bear condition on the left lane and Wolf condition on the right lane.

EJ Tackett Wins FloBowling PBA Bear Open to Become First Three-Time Winner of 2018 Go Bowling! PBA Tour Season

by Jerry Schneider October 18, 2018 21:43

OWASSO, Okla. – EJ Tackett of Bluffton, Ind., won the FloBowling PBA Bear Open Thursday to become the first three-time winner of the 2018 Go Bowling! PBA Tour season.

In the second tournament of the FloBowling PBA Fall Swing at The Lanes at Coffee Creek, Tackett successfully defended his Bear Open title from 2016 by beating top qualifier Stuart Williams of England, 212-197, in the title match for the 12th win of his career.

Despite an open in the 10th frame, Tackett had struck in the seventh, eighth and ninth frames which gave him enough of a lead to clinch the win. Williams, who was trying for his second career tour title, opened in the seventh frame when he left the 2-4-8-10 split and was unable to close the gap.

“You hate to win a match with an open in the 10th frame,” said Tackett, the 2016 PBA Player of the Year. “I was fortunate that the strikes in the seventh, eighth and ninth gave me enough of a cushion and set me up to be in good position for the win even though it wasn’t pretty at the end.”

As the season’s only three-time winner, Tackett becomes a top contender for PBA Player of the Year honors with just the FloBowling PBA Tulsa Open and U.S. Open left in the season.

“I’m the first to win three but you can’t be sure of anything at this point especially with two big tournaments left,” Tackett said. “I’ve been doing a good job of giving myself the best chances to succeed all year and I’m going to have to continue to do that down the stretch.”

Tackett, the No. 2 qualifier for the finals, advanced to the title match by winning the semifinal against Kris Prather of Plainfield, Ill., winning a one-ball roll-off 9-8 after a 245-245 tie.

Prather was coming off a season’s best third-place finish in the Wolf Open which concluded Tuesday.

Prather, the No. 3 qualifier, beat Wolf Open runner-up Andrew Anderson of Holly, Mich., a two-time winner this season that includes the USBC Masters, 199-194, in the second stepladder match to advance to the semifinal.

In the opening match, Anderson, the No. 4 qualifier, beat No. 5 qualifier one-time tour winner Richie Teece of England, 202-178, to advance to the second match against Prather.

The finals were conducted on PBA’s Bear 39-foot lane condition pattern.

Top 18 Advance to FloBowling Tulsa Open Match Play

After the combined 24-game qualifying totals from the Wolf and Bear events, Prather leads the field of 18 players who advanced to Tulsa Open match play with a 5,476 24-game pinfall total (228 average). All five Bear Open finalists made the cut to match play with Anderson finishing qualifying in second with 5,470, followed by Tackett in third with 5,457 and Williams fourth with 5,419. Teece advanced by finishing in 11th with 5,223.

Wolf Open winner Anthony Simonsen earned the 18th and final qualifying position with a 5,172 pinfall.

The first of two six-game round robin match play rounds begins Friday at 9 a.m. CT with the second round at 2:30 p.m. The final match play round gets underway Saturday morning 9 a.m. which will determine the top five players for the Tulsa Open stepladder finals at 12:30 p.m.

The 18 players who advanced to match play and the five who advance to the stepladder finals will have the added challenge of bowling on the Bear 39-foot lane condition on the left lane and the Wolf 33-foot lane condition on the right lane in each match.

England’s Richie Teece Takes FloBowling PBA Bear Open First Round Lead

by Jerry Schneider October 17, 2018 18:22

OWASSO, Okla. – After a 43rd-place finish in the FloBowling PBA Fall Swing’s Wolf Open, England’s Richie Teece averaged 235 for six games to bounce back and take the Bear Open first round lead Wednesday in the second of three events that make up the Fall Swing at The Lanes at Coffee Creek.

Teece posted a 1,410 six-game pinfall total on PBA’s 39-foot Bear lane condition pattern with games of 217, 267, 236, 255, 244 and 191.

“I wasn’t miles away from where I needed to be in the Wolf tournament so I was pretty optimistic coming into the Bear,” Teece said. “I looked at it as a new tournament and I was able to take advantage of making a fresh start.

“These oil patterns make you work hard for sure,” Teece continued. “I’ve made a few changes to my physical game where I’m concentrating more on reading the lane conditions more front to back than side to side which has helped me make smaller and more accurate adjustments.

Teece won his first Go Bowling! PBA Tour title in the 2017 World Series of Bowling Shark Championship but has struggled somewhat this year with best finishes of 10th in the Storm Striking Against Breast Cancer Doubles and 12th in the Xtra Frame Kenn-Feld Classic.

“It’s been a steady year but not a great year,” the 28-year-old Teece said. “I haven’t really met the goals I’ve set for myself. I want to feel that buzz again that you get when you make a stepladder final.”

Teece holds a 16-pin lead over fellow Englander Stuart Williams who finished the round with a 1,394 pinfall.

Anthony Simonsen, who won the Wolf Open for his second title of the season and fifth of his career, struggled in the first round of the Bear Open finishing tied for 36th with a 1,205 pinfall.

Fresh off his third-place finish in the Wolf Open Tuesday, Kris Prather of Plainfield, Ill., holds the lead in Tulsa Open qualifying after 18 games (12 games in the Wolf Open and the first six in the Bear Open) with a 4,096 pinfall. He bowled games of 238, 279, 246, 223, 177 and 170 in Bear Open first round.

“Obviously I’m disappointed with the way I finished the round but in general I’m still pretty confident,” Prather said. “The challenge of bowling multiple tournaments like this is that it gets harder and harder to repeat good shots.”

The field returns for the second Bear Open six-game round Thursday that will determine the top five players who will advance to the stepladder finals at 7:30 p.m. CT.

The players also are competing to make the cut to the top 18 for the match play rounds of the Tulsa Open which begin on Friday. The top 18 scorers after 24-game qualifying totals from the Wolf and Bear events, will advance to match play, which consists of two six-game round robin match play rounds on Friday and the final six-game round on Saturday morning.  After match play the top five players advance to the Tulsa Open stepladder finals Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

The entire Fall Swing is streamed live on Xtra Frame on FloBowling which is providing multi-stream coverage of every lane of competition.

Anthony Simonsen Wins FloBowling PBA Wolf Open for Second Go Bowling! PBA Tour Title of the Season

by Jerry Schneider October 16, 2018 21:26

OWASSO, Okla.  – Anthony Simonsen of Austin, Texas, won the FloBowling PBA Wolf Open Tuesday to become the fifth two-time winner this season and adding his name as a candidate for PBA Player of the Year honors with only three Go Bowling! PBA Tour tournaments left in the season.

In the first tournament of the FloBowling PBA Fall Swing, Simonsen, the top qualifier for the finals, beat another two-time winner, Andrew Anderson of Holly, Mich., 239-226, in the title match at The Lanes at Coffee Creek to also win his fifth career title.

Simonsen opened in the eighth frame of the title match but still had a five-pin lead over Anderson heading into the ninth frame. He got back on track with a strike in the ninth and the first shot of the 10th frame which was enough for the victory.

“I didn’t throw a good shot in the seventh frame so when I left the 2-4-8 in the eighth frame, that was the result of an over correction,” Simonsen said. “I didn’t panic because with the five-pin lead heading into the ninth I felt the match was still in my hands. I had confidence in my ball reaction and that I could buckle down and throw the good shots I needed to make.”

Simonsen joined Anderson, and other player of the year candidates 2016 player of the year EJ Tackett, four-time and reigning player of the year Jason Belmonte and Jakob Butturff as the season’s other two-time winners.

“Overall it’s been a good season for me but I think there’s a couple guys, including Andrew, who have the edge on the player of the year race, said the 21-year-old Simonsen. “We’ve got two more tournaments here and we wrap up the season with the U.S. Open so there’s a lot of bowling left to determine that.”

The 2018 season concludes with the U.S. Open Oct. 24-31 at Northrock Lanes in Wichita, Kan.

In the semifinal match, Anderson, the 2018 USBC Masters winner, beat Kris Prather of Plainfield, Ill., who was trying for his first tour win, 297-227. Anderson was denied a 300 game when his final shot in the 10th frame went high and he left the 3-6-10.

In the opening stepladder match, 18-time tour winner Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., beat Darren Tang of San Francisco, who was also trying for his first tour win, 227-216. Jones then advanced to the second match where he lost to Anderson 230-191

Jones came all the way from 41st after the first round to qualify fourth for the finals.

The FloBowling PBA Fall Swing continues with the first round of qualifying for the Bear Open Wednesday which will be followed by the second round Thursday to determine the top five players for the Bear Open stepladder finals Thursday at 7:30 p.m. CT.

After the combined 24-game qualifying totals from the Wolf and Bear events, the top 18 players will advance to Tulsa Open match play, consisting of two six-game round robin match play rounds on Friday and the final six-game round on Saturday morning. The top five after 42 games, including match play bonus pins will advance to the Tulsa Open finals at 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

The entire Fall Swing is streamed live on Xtra Frame on FloBowling which is providing multi-stream coverage of every lane of competition.
