HAMMOND, Ind. – Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y., who has endured a series of bad breaks in hisquest for his first PBA50 Tour title, made a break-through when he struck on eight of his first nine shotsto defeat PBA Hall of Famer Randy Pedersen of Clermont, Fla., 242-205, in the title match of thePBA50 South Shore Open at Olympia Lanes.“It’s never an easy battle out here,” Jurek said. “I’vewon a couple of Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Awards because I’ve lost a lot of times in title matches and people think I’m a nice guy.”Jurek, who had disappointing losses in Dayton,Ohio, a week earlier after losing a crushing loss toHall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. earlier in theyear in the USBC Senior Masters title match, cameinto the finale in Hammond with a fresh attitude,thanks in part to some advice he got from Pedersen,his traveling roommate.“(Randy) and I talked a little after my debacle inDayton and he gave me some thoughts about how heapproaches things,” Jurek said. “It helped. I’ve got alot of guys who have been trying to help. (PBA leg-end) Mark Roth has been telling me, stop being sonice. Go beat people, so tonight I just decided to gofor it. I was a lot more aggressive than I have been.”Against Pedersen, Jurek’s only major mistake wasleaving a 2-4-8-10 split in the fourth frame, but oth-erwise he was nearly perfect.“Jack was due,” Pedersen said. “He’s been bowlingreally well. After he left the 2-4-8-10 (in the fifthframe), I was wondering if the old Jack was going toshow up or the new one. He persevered.”

Thousands of grassroots league bowlers men, women, seniorsand especially kids – have treas-ured memories of bowling in PBAPro-Am events, where they teamup with PBA stars and stars-to-be.But few pro-am bowlers have ever had an experience quite like theone six-year-old Brianna Archabalhad during the PBA BoiseWest/Northwest Open at 20thCentury Lanes in Boise, Idaho, onJuly 25.The daughter of former PBARegional player Scot Archabal was bowling on the same pair of laneswith 2013 PBA Regional Finalschamp Ben Laughlin of Chandler,Ariz., who started his game with 11strikes. Laughlin then told Briannathat he gets very nervous when he’sso close to bowling a 300 game,and asked her if she’d throw thelast ball for him.She did…and she struck…andthe crowd went wild.“Anyone who has kids had tearsin their eyes,” wrote ChristianAshcraft, who also was bowling onthe same pair of lanes. “I don’thave any way to thank Ben person-ally for making that little girl’s day, but I really appreciate what he did.”Brianna’s mother SamanthaArchabal notes that her daughter isno stranger to PBA pro-ams. Sheattended her first one when she wastwo weeks old.

Some of the things that makebowling so great are also thethings that make it one of the mostcomplicated competitive sports foroutsiders to understand.For instance, in most sportsthere is a somewhat cut and driedlegal line dividing amateurs frompros. In most cases, it is tied tomoney earnings. Simply put, if you make money in a sport, or tryto make money competing in asport, you are a pro. If you don'taccept money or valuable andhigh costing merchandise prizes,then you are an amateur.In bowling that distinction isbased on whether you're a mem-ber of a professional bowlingorganization or on some vagueguidelines as to what constitutes aprofessional. Ability means noth-ing. Earnings mean next to noth-ing. So we have a situation where-by an amateur can win $100,000,or even a million, and for all prac-tical purposes, remain an ama-teur.On the other side you have theprofessionals. It isn't the most dif-ficult task to become a member of a pro bowling organization. Theyare many pros that don't win$1,000 in a year, and there aresome who don't win $100.Still, many tournament promot-ers and many organizations in thesport bar pros of any sort. Thereare many, many big money win-ning so-called amateurs with morethan adequate professional ability.And there more than enough onpaper pros.So where does all this put bowl-ing? It puts us on the top rung of confusion, with an A in misunder-standing, and highest honors innonstandardization, inexplicablerules, and undefinable regulations.There was a day when mostbowlers, within their averagerange class, wanted to bowl withand against the best, and so soughtcompetition a bit higher than theirlevel. Today, a host of top level,pro ability bowlers won't join apro group because that will barthem from certain tournaments.So they stay as non-pros, and oftenare rewarded because much of their top level competition isbarred.Man is a competitive animal,and so are bowlers, but they aren'tstupid it's always easier to take theeasy way out and in many casesbowling makes that possible.It could be that the easy way forbowlers is also the easier way forleague and tournament promotersdo what you must, to gain themost participants, including easyscoring and all forms of bowlinggambling.It could be that bowling man-ages to survive with many bowlerswho are just looking for a fewhours of diversion to get awayfrom something and really aren'tinto bowling, but are into what thebowling atmosphere can provide,some fun, some mixing, somerecreation, some exercise, andsome escape.But the lasting and stick-to-itappeal of the game must be inbowlers wanting to learn moreabout the sport, wanting toimprove, and wanting to be com-petitive, and that doesn't mean just for big money.Earl Anthony was just as com-petitively shooting for a two-inchhigh trophy as he is when he'sgoing for $100,000. And there arebowlers of all averages who are just as competitive as Anthony.What does it all mean? It meansthat bowling must first and fore-most be a sport. It means thatthere must be a second and thirdlook at the rules governing junior,high school, college, amateur andpro bowlers. it means we mustuncomplicate our most complicat-ed areas as soon as possible.
