Hugh Miller Wins PBA Senior South Shore Open
By Jerry Schneider | PBA HAMMOND, Ind. – Hugh Miller of Seattle won the Professional Bowlers Association Senior South Shore Open presented by DV8 for his third career Senior Tour title and in the process became a contender for Senior Player of the Year heading into the final tournament of the Senior Tour season. Miller defeated 2007 Senior U.S. Open winner Rick Minier of Houston, 198-172, in the championship match to move into second on the Senior Player of the Year points list, 12 points behind Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. Williams hoped to clinch the honor in Hammond but failed to earn any points after being eliminated in the second round of match play. “I was kind of a long shot but wasn’t really mentioned as a contender so I kind of used that as a motivator,” said Miller, who earned 16 Player of the Year points for his win. “When Walter Ray wasn’t able get any points I thought let’s win this thing and the race is on.” In the semifinal match Miller, also a seven-time PBA Tour winner, defeated 2012 USBC Senior Masters winner Mike Edwards of Tulsa, 237-177, to advance to the title match. In the other semifinal, Minier defeated Hall of Famer and four-time Senior Player of the Year Tom Baker of King, N.C., 220-205. Miller did not bowl the first three tournaments of the season but finished second in the Senior Northern California Classic and Senior Masters which put him in Player of the Year contention. “I’ve had a pretty good season considering I didn’t bowl the first three tournaments,” said Miller, who finished second in Hammond in 2008. “I’ve adopted a new philosophy of bowling a little more aggressively and not giving away the pocket. It seems to be working so I thought why not go for it.” Edwards, who was awarded fourth in the tournament, earned two Player of the Year points to stay in the race in third, 14 points behind Williams.

PBA Senior Tour to Become 'PBA50 Tour' in 2013 PBA CREATES INTERNATIONAL
By Jerry Schneider - PBA DECATUR, Ill. – The Professional Bowlers Association Senior Tour will be re-named as the PBA50 Tour beginning with the 2013 season, PBA Commissioner Tom Clark announced at the PBA Senior Decatur Open presented by Brunswick, the concluding tournament of the 2012 Senior Tour season. “The word ‘senior’ is outdated and the title PBA50 more accurately reflects the vibrancy of the players and our competition in this age group,” Clark said. The change in name is underscored by the continuing stream of stars to the over-50 circuit. During the 2012 season alone, players including Lennie Boresch Jr., Mike Edwards, Bob Learn Jr. and Amleto Monacelli immediately won titles in their first year of Senior Tour eligibility. Monacelli, the 2012 Senior U.S. Open winner, and Edwards, the 2012 USBC Senior Masters winner, also remain active – and competitive on the PBA Tour, along with other 50-plus members. ment and going on to earn Senior Rookie of the Year honors. And during the 2009-10 PBA Tour season, at age 50, Williams became the oldest player in any major sport to earn Player of the Year honors. This season, at the age of 52, he is the favorite to win his first PBA Senior Player of the Year title to go along with his record seven Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year awards. The 50-plus program also produced previously-undiscovered talent in years past, when highlytalented bowlers who never had a chance to bowl as PBA Tour players reached the age where they could retire and give PBA-level competition a try. Most prominent among that group are Gene Stus, who earned his place in the PBA Hall of Fame as a senior champion, Bob Glass, a three-time PBA Senior Tour Player of the Year, and two-time Senior Player of the Year Ron Mohr. “There are plenty of good bowlers who are becoming eligible and successful on the Senior Tour each year," Williams said. Each tournament on the 2013 PBA50 Tour schedule will include the PBA50 moniker along with sponsor affiliation where applicable. PBA50 also will apply to PBA Regional events that were previously called senior tournaments. The exceptions will be the PBA Senior U.S. Open and United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters which will retain their present names. In the effort to reach out to younger bowlers, earlier this year PBA introduced the new PBA24 membership program which invites new players 24 years of age and younger to experience PBA competition for a $49 membership fee. The 2013 PBA50 Tour schedule will be released later this fall.

BOWLING AWARENESS THROUGH EUROSPORT
By Bill Vint - PBA While television air waves around the world were saturated with Olympic Games coverage, the Professional Bowlers Association created awareness for bowling – a non-Olympic sport – through a renewal of an agreement with Eurosport to air the full 2011-12 PBA Tour schedule on its Eurosport 2 network. The absence of bowling from the Olympic program, a longstanding sore spot among the world’s millions of bowling participants, wasn’t lost on one of the sport’s high-profile enthusiasts. While doing his best to help Team USA win the Olympic gold medal in basketball, Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul – host of the Chris Paul PBA Celebrity Invitational bowling event for the past four years – went on his Twitter account to ask the world, "Why isn't bowling in the Olympics? It should be." “With an increasing number of world-class international players, and a growing number of international PBA Tour events, the Eurosport partnership will not only increase international exposure for the PBA Tour, but also bring the sport to a growing fan base worldwide,” said PBA Commissioner Tom Clark. The PBA began its relationship with Eurosport in 2009 when Eurosport aired all of the 2008-09 PBA Tour telecasts. The international sports television outlet provides programming including soccer, motor sports, tennis, cricket, Australian football and Olympic coverage among many others. Eurosport 2 is one of the fastest-growing TV channels in Europe, reaching 50 million households in 16 languages across 47 countries.

On the PBA50 Tour eligibility horizon are PBA Hall of Famers Pete Weber (Aug. 21), Parker Bohn III (July 13, 2013) and ESPN analyst Randy Pedersen (turned 50 on May 28). Also on the list of future PBA50 competitors are PBA Tour champions Jack Jurek (April 23), Chris Warren (Aug. 27, 2013), David Traber (Jan. 18) and Robert Lawrence (Sept. 29). The ultimate example of a player having concurrent success on both Tours came two seasons ago when PBA Hall of Famer and alltime Tour career titles leader Walter Ray Williams Jr. made an immediate impact in the senior ranks, winning in his first tourna-

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. D i s c o v e r. "
