Professional Bowler Anthony Simonsen Becomes First Professional to Win the Bowlero Elite Series, Earning a First Place Prize of $100,000

by Jerry Schneider September 12, 2019 14:38

New York, NY, Sept. 12th, 2019 – Professional bowler Anthony Simonsen of Little Elm, Texas, became the new Bowlero Elite Series Champion during the second installment of the pro-am series. The tournament gathered 16 of the world’s top professional and amateur bowlers at Bowlero North Brunswick for an exhilarating display of bowling’s best that crowned a new winner on Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Simonsen, the 22-year-old professional bowler, competed against amateur bowler and Harrison, NJ, middle school teacher Amy Brehm in the title championship match (259-220) to win the second Bowlero Elite Series title and a $100,000 top prize—one of the largest winnings in the sport. Amy won a second-place prize of $65,000, with the tournament’s cash prizes totaling more than $250,000.

Prior to the final match, Simonsen went head-to-head with professional bowlers in three single-elimination matches where he competed against the national champion from Mexico, Sandra Gongora (225-218), 11-time PBA Titleholder and Team USA Member Bill O’Neill (246-245), and Five-Time World Champion Stefanie Johnson (258-227).

“It was really exciting getting to compete in the Bowlero Elite Series,” said Anthony Simonsen. “I love seeing two different sides of the sport come together as one. This event was made even more special when I found out about Bowlero Corp purchasing the PBA. Really looking forward to the future and competing again in December.”

Brehm’s matches during the tournament also had the crowd cheering as she competed at her home bowling center. Brehm went head-to-head with Bowlero league bowlers in three single-elimination matches where she played against Milwaukee father Torry Henderson (224-167), Puerto Rico native Rafael Pizarro (231-202), and fellow local league bowler and Bowlero North Brunswick pro shop manager Lucas Leandro (174-141).

“Participating in the Bowlero Elite Series was an unbelievable opportunity from the start and I’m very grateful to have made it so far,” said Amy Brehm. “While I didn’t win the tournament, I still took home $65,000 and am very proud to have represented my community and, hopefully, inspired my students to keep chasing their dreams.”

“Once again, the Bowlero Elite Series is proof that anything can happen on the lanes,” said Colie Edison, Chief Customer Officer for Bowlero Corp and President of the Bowlero Elite Series. “During this second tournament we saw some nail-biting matches, legends getting knocked out in the first round, and some truly inspirational players advance; proving just how dynamic the sport of bowling really is.”

The Bowlero Elite Series will continue with its third and final event of the year that will air on NBC on Saturday, Dec. 28, at 3 p.m. at Bowlero Jupiter, Fla. Since the inaugural tournament in April, more than $1 million in prize money will have been awarded across all three Bowlero Elite Series events this year.

Tackett, and European Champion Diana Zavjalova.

Jason Sterner Wins FloBowling PBA Illinois Open For Third Career Go Bowling! PBA Tour Title

by Jerry Schneider August 31, 2019 18:15

AURORA, Ill.  – Jason Sterner of Rochester, New York, won all four stepladder final matches including a 243-212 title match victory over top seed EJ Tackett of Bluffton, Indiana, to win the FloBowling PBA Illinois Open Saturday for his third career Go Bowling! PBA Tour title. The Illinois Open was the pinnacle event of the three-tournament FloBowling PBA Summer Swing presented by the Brands of Ebonite International at Parkside Lanes.

In a stepladder final that featured a dual lane condition pattern – PBA 41-foot Bear condition on the left lane and 32-foot Wolf condition on the right lane – both players started the title match with a spare and two strikes but Sterner was able to pull away when Tackett missed a 3-6-10 spare in the fourth frame. Sterner put together four more strikes that ultimately proved too much for Tackett to overcome.

As the No. 5 seed for the finals, Sterner won his position round match in the final match play round against 11-time tour winner Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, 256-199, to make it into the finals.

“I think that (position round) win really relaxed me and put me in a good mindset for the finals,” said the 35-year-old Sterner. “I felt fortunate to make the finals, so my attitude was let’s throw a lot of strikes and go have some fun.”

Sterner Trophy IIThe win ended a two-year drought for Sterner whose last title came in the PBA/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles (with Birgit Poppler) in July of 2017.

“I had been struggling for a long time, but I made a (ball) grip change about four months ago and made some other physical changes,” Sterner said. “My game wasn’t evolving the way it should to keep up with the younger guys so I had to make some changes and just committed to them. There was some trial and error but now I’m really confident my game’s moving in the right direction.”

Sterner opened the stepladder finals with a 248-184 win over No. 4 seed Anthony Simonsen of Little Elm, Texas, who won the PBA Bear Open on Thursday for his seventh career title.

In the second match, Sterner then beat PBA Wolf Open winner Sean Rash of Montgomery, Illinois, 259-225, to advance to the semifinal match where he beat No. 2 seed two-hander Jason Belmonte of Australia, 236-208, to advance to the title match against Tackett. Tackett, who also finished second in the Bear Open,  was trying for his second win of the season and 14th of his career.

“The win against Jason (Belmonte) gave me a lot of confidence heading into the title match,” Sterner said. “I had my share of ugly strikes, but I was thinking just knock 10 pins down, fill the frames and hope the breaks would go my way.”

Belmonte, a four-time PBA Player of the Year, was trying for his fifth win of the season and 23rd of his career.

As the points leader for the nine-tournament FloBowling PBA Summer Tour, Rash, whose Wolf Open win was the 14th of his career and second of the season, won the USBC Cup and a $20,000 bonus.

To make the Illinois Open stepladder finals, the five finalists advanced from the 14 games of qualifying in both the PBA Wolf and Bear Opens earlier in the week and then competed in 24 games of match play which also used the mixed Wolf and Bear lane conditions.

Simonsen Retains Slim Lead in FloBowling PBA Illinois Open After Second Round of Match Play

by Jerry Schneider August 30, 2019 19:45

AURORA, Ill.  – PBA Bear Open winner Anthony Simonsen of Little Elm, Texas, compiled an 8-7-1 match play record and averaged 220 for 16 games Friday which was good enough to retain a narrow lead after the first two rounds of match play in the FloBowling PBA Illinois Open at Parkside Lanes.

In the pinnacle event of the FloBowling PBA Summer Swing presented by the Brands of Ebonite International, the two-hander finished the day with a 10,306 44-game pinfall total (including 30 bonus pins for each match win) to hold a six-pin lead over 13-time Go Bowling! PBA Tour titlist and Bear Open runner-up EJ Tackett of Bluffton, Indiana, in second with a 9-6-1 match play record and 10,300 pinfall.

Simonsen beat Tackett in Thursday’s dramatic Bear Open title match 10-9 in the second one-ball roll-off after tying 267-267.

The 24 players in the Illinois Open match play field have the added challenge of competing on a mixed lane condition pattern – the Bear 41-foot lane condition on the left lane and the Wolf 32-foot condition on the right lane in each match which puts a premium on the players’ ability to adjust, including often using a different ball on each lane.

Everybody out here on tour has the physical ability but the players who can deal with the mental grind, especially in a tournament like this, are going to have the advantage,” said the 22-year-old Simonsen who won the Bear Open for his seventh career Go Bowling! PBA Tour title. “You’re using different equipment and playing totally different lines so it kind of multiplies the variables you might normally have to deal with.”

In Friday’s second match play round Simonsen started strong with games of 279 and 235 but then fell off with games of 193, 177 and 170 before finishing strong with games of 246, 259 and 268.

“It seems like I go through streaks where I’m either bowling well in the middle of the round and not so well at the beginning and end, or like I did tonight, where I’m bowling well at the beginning and end but not in the middle,” Simonsen said. “Tomorrow I’ll need to string together at least a few good games so I make the show.”

The final match play round gets underway Saturday at 11 a.m. CT and will determine the top five players for the Illinois Open stepladder finals at 3:30 p.m.

Australian two-hander Jason Belmonte climbed to third with a 10,238 pinfall helped by an 11-5 record in match play. The 36-year-old four-time PBA Player of the Year is trying for his fifth win of the season and the 23rd of his career.

Rounding out the top five heading into tomorrow’s final match play round are 11-time tour winner Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, who jumped from 12th after the first match play round finishing with a 11-4-1 record and 10,222 pinfall. Hometown favorite Sean Rash of Montgomery, Illinois, who defeated Simonsen in the title match to win the Wolf Open on Tuesday for his 14th tour title, put together a 10-6 record and finished with a 10,200 pinfall.
