This year, the extra effort helped him to a $10,000 pay-day as the event's Open Singles champion."It feels great," said Murphy, who rolled games of 267,277, 187 and 259 for a 990 total. "I've worked really hardon my game, and winning this lets me know the hard work is paying off. It's really hard to put into words."Murphy lives just north of Joplin, Mo., where a devastat-ing tornado touched down a little more than a month ago.Murphy and his teammates were just happy to get to Renowithout issue."It really puts everything into perspective," said Murphy,a software engineer for ANPAC, who bowls league atEnterprise Park Lanes.

"We thought 1,800was a good score, but we didn't think it would hold up. Wesaw some big names come through and not beat us, so wethought we had a really good chance after all. It's prettycool. I'm happy to help Paul get a title. He's wanted one for a while, and he bowled really well. "Fresh off another solid performance at the USBC OpenChampionships, 2007 Regular Team champion BryonSmith of Roseburg, Ore., took his skills across town to theGrand Sierra Resort and claimed the Classic Singles title atthe 2011 Bowlers Journal Championships with a 951 set.He posted games of 264, 193, 236 and 258 to win the$1,600 top prize, and the effort also helped the 2003 USBCMasters winner to a share of the top spot on the Dual Entry prize list along with Brett Wolfe of Tempe, Ariz., the 2002Masters champion, who rolled a 951 set on the way to athird-place finish in Open Singles.
