PBA World Championship Finals to Air Live Sunday on FS1; WSOB XI Animal Pattern Finals Postponed

by Bill Vint March 13, 2020 17:15

LAS VEGAS - The PBA has modified plans for Storm World Series of Bowling XI finals in response to the coronavirus pandemic, enhancing the prize fund for the live PBA World Championship telecast on FS1 Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Eastern (10:30 a.m. Pacific), but postponing all additional competition in the three animal pattern championships.

The last-minute changes have been made out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of players, family members and tournament officials. International travel restrictions that may impact a number of World Series competitors also played a role in PBA’s decisions.

The changes include the following:

1) The match play eliminations and finals of the Go Bowling PBA Cheetah Championship, Chameleon Championship and Scorpion Championship will be postponed indefinitely. Details regarding completion of those events will be announced later.

2) The live PBA World Championship finals will include enhanced prize money of $150,000 to the winner, $70,000 for second place, $40,000 for third, $30,000 for fourth and $20,000 for fifth place. The finalists, from first to fifth seeds, respectively, are Jason Belmonte, EJ Tackett, Anthony Simonsen, Francois Lavoie and Chris Via. The finals will still be conducted with an audience limited to fellow players, family members and tournament officials.

3) FS1 will air the finals live on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Eastern (10:30 a.m. Pacific) instead of next Wednesday, as originally planned.

4) A decision on the PBA’s 2020 competition points race, affecting the field of player who will qualify for the PBA Playoffs, will be announced later.

5) The PBA League Draft, scheduled for Sunday afternoon, also has been postponed and will be conducted at a later date.

The PBA announcement Friday comes on the heels of USBC’s announcement Thursday that the USBC Masters, originally scheduled for March 23-29 in Reno, has been postponed indefinitely.

Jason Belmonte Overtakes EJ Tackett to Qualify No. 1 for PBA World Championship Stepladder Finals

by Bill Vint March 13, 2020 05:58

LAS VEGAS – Australia’s Jason Belmonte out-bowled a field of 120 Storm PBA World Series of Bowling XI competitors over 56 games on four different lane conditions to earn the top berth for the PBA World Championship stepladder finals at South Point Bowling Plaza Thursday.

The PBA World Championship will be decided live on FS1 on Wednesday, March 18, at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific before an audience consisting only of PBA players, family members and tournament officials in the wake of the PBA’s decision to close the event to the public in response to coronavirus concerns.

Belmonte, who owns 2017 and 2019 PBA World Championships among his record 12 PBA major titles, overcame EJ Tackett’s 246-pin lead heading into the final 16 games of round robin match play Thursday, winning 11 of his 16 matches to post a 56-game total of 13,546 pins and qualifying No. 1 for the stepladder finals by six pins over Tackett.

Rounding out the finals field will be Anthony Simonsen, Little Elm, Texas, with a 13,390 total, two-time U.S. Open winner Francois Lavoie, Canada, 13,283, and Chris Via, Springfield, Ohio, 13,236.

Simonsen, 23, is trying to become the youngest bowler in PBA history to win three major titles. He won the USBC Masters at 19 and upset Belmonte to win the PBA Players Championship a year ago at age 22. Via is trying for his first PBA Tour title.

The multi-event PBA World Series has been contested on 33-foot Cheetah, 39-foot Chameleon, 42-foot Scorpion and 43-foot Earl Anthony lane oiling patterns, forcing the entire field of players from around the world to adapt to a variety of scoring challenges. All players also have been working to earn competition points in each event toward qualifying for the upcoming PBA Playoffs and the annual PBA League draft that will be held Sunday at 5 p.m. Eastern.

Prior to the World Championship finals, the top 16 qualifiers in the Go Bowling PBA Cheetah Championship, Chameleon Championship and Scorpion Championship will bowl five-game, single-elimination match play rounds to narrow each group of 16 to four finalists. The Cheetah elimination rounds will take place Saturday at 3 and 6 p.m. Eastern and the finals will air live on FS1 on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Eastern. The Chameleon and Scorpion match play rounds will be held at noon and 3 p.m. Eastern with finals live on FS1 Monday and Tuesday, respectively, at 8 p.m. Eastern.

The WSOB XI will conclude with a special USA vs. The World team event that will air on FS1 on Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern.

LAS VEGAS – Australia’s Jason Belmonte led off the second round in the PBA Scorpion Championship with a 279 game Tuesday, averaging 244.4 for his final five games, top qualifying in the final animal pattern event of the Storm PBA World Series of Bowling XI at South Point Bowling Plaza.

A second-place finish in the Scorpion leg also moved Jakob Butturff of Tempe, Arizona into the lead in PBA World Championship qualifying. The Scorpion Championship was the third and final qualifying stages of the PBA World Championship, the 2020 Go Bowling PBA Tour’s fourth major championship. Butturff qualified third in the Go Bowling PBA Cheetah Championship qualifying to kick off WSOB XI and he then led the Chameleon Championship round.

Belmonte, with a 10-game total of 2,324 pins, led the top 16 Scorpion qualifiers advancing to best-of-five-game, single-elimination match play on Tuesday, March 17. At the end of the day, four finalists will compete for the Scorpion title live on FS1 Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern (5 p.m. Pacific) as part of five consecutive days of WSOB XI telecasts.

Butturff completed PBA World Championship qualifying with a 30-game total of 7,030 pins for the combined Cheetah, Chameleon and Scorpion qualifying rounds, finishing 45 pins ahead of 2016 PBA World Champion EJ Tackett of Bluffton, Indiana, who slipped to a tie for 14th in the Scorpion round to finish with a 6,985 total. Sweden’s Jesper Svensson, coming off back-to-back PBA Tour titles in the Go Bowling Indianapolis Open and the Mark Roth-Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship, is third with 6,908 pins.

The top 40 World Championship qualifiers advanced to Wednesday’s cashers round that consists of two five-game blocks at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Eastern (3 and 5:30 p.m. Pacific). After 40 games, pinfall totals will determine the top 16 players who will advance to round robin match play on Thursday. After 56 games, the five leading scorers will advance to the PBA World Championship stepladder finals live on FS1 on Wednesday, March 18, at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific.

Following qualifying rounds on the 33-foot Cheetah, 39-foot Chameleon and 42-foot Scorpion lane oiling patterns, the World Championship will be contested on the 43-foot Earl Anthony pattern, completing a multi-event competition that challenged players to adapt to a variety of scoring environments.
