PBA Spare Shots: Bowlers Journal Features Veteran Go Bowling! PBA Tour Sideline Reporter Kimberly Pressler

by Bill Vint May 17, 2019 12:16

Kimberly Pressler, the cover subject for the May issue of Bowlers Journal International, has been a mainstay on the sidelines of Go Bowling! PBA Tour telecasts now for nine years. The dawn of the PBA Tour’s FOX Sports era this season saw her role expand with that network as she now serves up scoops for viewers about adjustments and storylines the audience would not know about if Pressler were not down in the trenches with the players and tour reps.

But Pressler had been doing TV long before her arrival in the pro bowling world. She covered a range of sports including Motocross, snocross, truck racing, X Games events and much more for major networks such as MTV, NBC and ABC. As you will hear in her conversation with BJI Editor Gianmarc Manzione in a Bowlers Journal Podcast, some of those prior TV gigs made for some pretty hair-raising experiences that Pressler never will forget.

The conversation covers a broad range of topics, including the 20th anniversary of Pressler's win in the 1999 Miss USA pageant, what it was like to subsequently work for Donald Trump and live in Trump Tower as the first Miss USA since his acquisition of the Miss Universe Organization, and what it was like to dine with Trump and his then-girlfriend Melania (now First Lady Melania Trump) after Pressler arrived in New York City following her Miss USA win.

QUICK NOTES

The 17th Pioneers Tournament for PBA membership in China this week in Shanghai qualified three more bowlers for PBA membership eligibility. They join 97 players who qualified in previous Pioneers Tournaments conducted by Frank Zhao since 2014, bringing the total number of Chinese bowlers who have qualified for PBA membership to 100. Since the program began, Pioneers Tournaments have been held throughout China with hundreds of bowlers from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Germany, Japan and The Philippines participating.

Kai Strothers, the 10-year-old Maplewood boy who became the youngest New Jersey bowler to roll a certified 300 game and later rolled the ceremonial first ball at the PBA Tournament of Champions at the PBA’s invitation, was recognized as part of the annual "Essex County Celebrates Youth" Program at the Hall of Records in Newark recently. The annual event acknowledges outstanding young people throughout Essex County for their notable achievements.

Strothers, who is passionate and knowledgeable about bowling, bears the nickname "Popcorn" because while bowling he was snacking on popcorn and it was said the secret was in the popcorn.

PBA Spare Shots: Pete Weber Wins 47th Regional, Joins Walter Ray Williams Jr. in “100 PBA Titles Club”

by Bill Vint May 7, 2019 12:12

PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber has now won 37 PBA Tour, 47 standard PBA Regional, 11 PBA50 Tour and five PBA50 Regional titles, joining Walter Ray Williams Jr. as the only players to win a combined total of 100 PBA titles.

The 56-year-old St. Ann, Mo., resident joined the exclusive “100 PBA Titles” club after defeating Kyle Sherman of O’Fallon, Mo., by 75 pins to win the BowlersMart/Bowlero Midwest Open presented by Brunswick at Brunswick Zone Lakeside in Valley Park, Mo., Sunday.

Weber, who won his 99th title almost two years ago in the 2017 PBA50 DeHayes Insurance Group Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind., won nine of his 12 matches and posted a 20-game total of 4,643 pins Sunday, including match play bonus pins, to win his 100th combined PBA title.

Williams is the record-holder, with a total of 112 titles at all levels of PBA competition (47 PBA Tour, 33 PBA Regional, 14 PBA50 Tour and 18 PBA50 Regional). Weber also joined Williams late in 2018 as the second player in PBA history to surpass $4 million in career earnings. Williams is the all-time PBA earnings leader with just over $4.8 million.

By winning his 47th standard Regional title and his 52nd including his five PBA50 Regional wins, Weber is one title behind Chris Warren of Grants Pass, Ore., in both of those categories.

Sherman finished the Valley Park tournament with a 7-5 match play record and 4,568 pins, 70 ahead of 2018 PBA Rookie of the Year Kamron Doyle of Brentwood, Tenn. Weber earned $2,500, Sherman $1,500 and Doyle $1,250.

YOUNG CANCER SURVIVOR HONORED AT PBA REGIONAL IN MYRTLE BEACH

The PBA South Region and Myrtle Beach Bowl, the host center for the Brighton Construction Myrtle Beach South Open, paid tribute to 8-year-old cancer survivor and PBA super fan Titus Radosti in late April, according to reporter Ian Klein of WMBF News in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

“I like when you throw the ball and it hits these pins,” the young Radosti told Klein.

While dealing with leukemia, Titus found peace watching professional bowling, his father, Rob Radosti, said. “It was like a glimmer of hope for him among just a couple other things.”

Now in remission, Titus has been able to fulfill his dream by joining a local youth bowling league and he got to take part in the Myrtle Beach PBA event, including rolling the ceremonial first ball.

“If he can beat cancer, he can become a pro. I’m sure he has his dreams and his goals set high,” said seven-time PBA Tour titlist Ryan Ciminelli.

“We just hope that our story can be a glimmer of hope for anyone in Myrtle Beach who is facing a giant like we faced,” said Rob Radosti.

PBA REGIONAL UPDATE: BRAD MILLER REPEATS AS JUNCTION CITY CHAMP

Brad Miller from Lee’s Summit, Mo., defeated Canada’s Francois Lavoie in their final position round match, 247-181, to successfully defend his 2018 Junction City Bowl title and claim his fourth PBA Regional title in the 12th annual PBA Junction City Bowl Southwest/Midwest Open on Sunday in Junction City, Kan.

After eight games, Miller was in 10th place, advancing to third after the five-game casher’s round before finally overtaking Lavoie after game five of the eight-game round-robin match play finals. Lavoie regained the lead after game six before Miller took a five-pin lead going into the final game. Miller started the pivotal game with four strikes as Lavoie suffered an early open and was unable to offer any challenge after that. Miller’s win earned him the $2,500 first prize.

• Dick Allen of Lexington, S.C., won his 24th PBA Regional title Sunday, defeating seven-time PBA Tour champion Ryan Ciminelli of Clarence, N.Y., 222-163, to win the second annual PBA B&R Hauling Aberdeen South Open at Sandhills Bowling Center in Aberdeen, N.C.

Allen, who led the event wire-to-wire, qualified in the number one position for the stepladder finals with a 20-game pinfall including bonus pins of 4,499. Allen started the final match with a spare followed by three strikes while Ciminelli suffered two unmakeable splits in the first three frames and could never overcome the early deficit.  

In the first stepladder match, Trevor Roberts of Crystal River, Fla., defeated last week’s Myrtle Beach Open champion, Brandon Curtis of Manson, N.C., 240-213. Ciminelli then eliminated Roberts, 215-190, in the semifinal match.

• Chris Via of Springfield, Ohio defeated Patrick Dombrowski of Parma, Ohio by 20 pins Sunday to win the PBA Taylor Kia Central/East Open presented by Hammer at Holiday Bowl in Struthers, Ohio.

Via finished with a 9-3 match play record and a total of 4,616 pins for 20 games, including match play bonus pins, for his second PBA Regional title and the $2,500 top prize. Dombrowski posted an 8-4 match play record and knocked down 4,596 pins.

PBA Regional tournaments over the May 10-12 weekend include the PBA and PBA50 Baldo Campana Memorial/Ohio Lottery Central Opens presented by DV8 and MOTIV, respectively, at Rebman Recreation in Lorain, Ohio, and a PBA Northwest Region “tripleheader” in Puyallup, Wash., including the PBA and PBA50 Daffodil Bowl Opens presented by Roto Grip plus the Daffodil Bowl Women’s Open.

Over the May 17-19 weekend, the PBA Midwest Region returns to Glo Bowl in Marengo, Ill., for the Glo Bowl Midwest Open presented by Global 900. Also scheduled are the PBA50 Cherokee Lanes South Open presented by Roto Grip in Canton, Ga., and the Waxahachie Southwest Challenge for non-titlists at Hilltop Lanes in Waxahachie, Texas.

Anthony Simonsen, Andres Gomez Advance to PBA Playoffs Round of 8

by Jerry Schneider April 29, 2019 19:57

PORTLAND, Maine  – Anthony Simonsen of Little Elm, Texas and Colombia’s Andres Gomez filled two more spots in the PBA Playoffs Round of 8 after winning their Round of 16 Race to 2 Points matches that aired Monday on FS1 from Bayside Bowl.

Simonsen and Gomez joined Jason Belmonte of Australia, who leads the 2019 Go Bowling! PBA Tour season with four wins, and 2019 PBA Scorpion Championship winner Kris Prather of Plainfield, Illinois, who advanced by winning their Round of 16 matches that aired April 22 on FS1 and will meet in the Round of 8 on May 20.

Simonsen, who became the youngest to win two majors at 22 with his win in the PBA Players Championship in February, beat Page in the first game of their Race to 2 Points match, 237-214, but Page, a six-time tour winner with four top-five finishes this season, came back to win the second game, 226-214, to send the match to a ninth and 10th frame roll-off. Simonsen won the roll-off, 49-39, to advance to the Round of 8.

“The adrenaline was really flowing after the first game and I was a little too pumped up heading into the second game,” said Simonsen of dealing with the energy from the boisterous Bayside Bowl crowd. “When we got to the second game the crowd got a little quiet for some reason and that actually threw me off a little bit.

“Rhino got off to a good start in the second game, but I knew with one game in the bank I still had an opportunity in the roll-off,” Simonsen added. “I looked at the roll-off as another game – just make the best shots I can.”

GomezIn the second Round of 16 match, Gomez, a three-time tour winner, beat 2016 PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett of Bluffton, Indiana in both games – 231-228 and 245-193 – to advance.

Gomez put together a string of five strikes heading into the 10th frame of the first game to overtake Tackett after being down 37 pins in the fifth frame.

“In the first half of the first game I was still trying to figure it out,” said Gomez. “I needed to do what I do best and that was slow down. I don’t have the power that these guys have out here on tour so having the right hand position and ball speed are critical for me to get a good ball reaction.”

Gomez found the right combination in the second game, striking in seven of the first nine frames to breeze past a struggling Tackett.

The winner of the Playoffs, which features the top 24 players in competition points after the first 13 Go Bowling! PBA Tour tournaments of the 2019 season, will earn a $100,000 first prize.

Round of 16 action continues on FS1 on May 6 and May 13 with both two-match telecasts airing at 9 p.m. EDT. The eight survivors will bowl Round of 8 Race to 2 Points matches on May 20 and May 27, reducing the field to the four survivors who will return to Portland for the semifinal and final rounds June 1-2. Both of those rounds will air live on FOX at noon Eastern.

PBA Set to Launch Nine-Event Summer Tour in June; Unique Opportunities on Tap for Players and Fans

by Bill Vint April 26, 2019 11:11

CHICAGO – Much will be at stake when the 2019 Go Bowling! Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Summer Tour begins at the end of June.

Entry into an historic PBA event in China, a new FloBowling PBA ATX Invite special event and the inaugural United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Cup all rest in the balance when the seven-city, nine-event PBA Summer Tour begins June 28-30, in Lubbock, Texas.

The Summer Tour then moves to Houston for the Storm Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles in July before the heart of the schedule in August with seven more title events, punctuated by the FloBowling PBA Summer Swing presented by the brands of Ebonite, in Aurora, Illinois, Aug. 24-31.

All nine events will be streamed live from first ball to last by FloBowling. For subscription and schedule information visit www.flobowling.com.

"We're excited about the 2019 PBA Summer Tour because it gives more PBA fans around the country a chance to see our top players compete up close," PBA Tour CEO and Commissioner Tom Clark said. "The PBA Player Services Truck and lane maintenance team will be at all of the stops. The geography involved and the calendar are strategic, and the bonus incentives for top performers are big."

The 2019 PBA Summer Tour will have its own points list, with enticing and historic bonus incentives involving three inaugural competitions serving as top story lines throughout the Tour.

1) The inaugural USBC Cup will reward the top five players in PBA Summer Tour points with bonus cash prizes, including $20,000 to the points leader.

2) The inaugural FloBowling PBA ATX Invite will award berths into a special event for the top eight PBA Summer Tour points leaders at Dart Bowl in the hometown of FloSports, Austin, Texas, on Sept. 21. First prize in the FloBowling Invite will be $25,000 and all participants in the event will cash.

3) The inaugural PBA China Tiger Cup will award the top eight PBA Summer Tour points leaders with expenses-paid trips to Shanghai, Nov. 19-21, for a 16-player singles event including eight Chinese bowlers, and a separate USA vs. China team match. All players will cash in the PBA Tiger Cup singles event which offers a $20,000 first prize, and in the team event the winning five-player team will divide $15,000.

The 2019 PBA Summer Tour events will be open to non-PBA members as well as members, but non-members will not be eligible for any of the special events or bonus prizes.

Points earned during the PBA Summer Tour will also count toward 2020 DHC PBA Japan Invitational and 2020 PBA Tour Finals eligibility, as well as figuring into consideration for the end-of-season Player and Rookie of the Year awards.

All Summer Tour tournaments except the Aurora Open will be Tier 3 events under the PBA’s Tier 1-2-3 points system (the Aurora Open will be a Tier 2 event).
