PBA’s Tournament of Champions Returns to Traditional Exclusive Field
By Bill Vint - PBA SEATTLE, Washington – The 48th edition of the Professional Bowlers Association Tournament of Champions will return to its traditional roots in March of 2013 when it will feature an exclusive field featuring 48 PBA Tour champions plus any previous TOC winners who elect to participate. The Tournament of Champions will be held at Woodland Bowl in Indianapolis, March 26-31, concluding with a live five-player stepladder final airing on ESPN. “Since its inception in 1962, the PBA Tournament of Champions has gone through several adaptations given the circumstances of the day and has maintained its unique appeal. But for this year and moving forward we have concluded that the simple variables that made the TOC the PBA’s signature event should be restored,” said PBA Commissioner Tom Clark. “The two most important variables include returning the Tournament of Champions to an elite field – allowing the drama of trying to qualify to unfold – and utilizing a classic PBA tournament format of 48 games with all entrants starting on equal footing.” PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia, who won the 1971 Firestone Tournament of Champions in Akron, Ohio, in his first step toward completing the PBA Triple Crown, is pleased with the return to an exclusive field. “This is wonderful news,” Petraglia said. “I’m so happy. I’m a past champion and if I’m allowed to bowl, I’ll go even if I don’t think I have a chance to win.” Newly-inducted PBA Hall of Famer Jason Couch, the only player to win the TOC three consecutive times, also likes the decision. “I loved the old way when we had the bubble list every week,” Couch said. “It was great to watch on television, unless you were the guy on the bubble. I can certainly see myself coming out of retirement to bowl in it.” The 2013 TOC will feature a core field of 48 players. To make up that field, precedence goes to PBA national champions who are Touring 1 or 2 players (those who bowled in at least 60 percent of PBA Tour events last year). For the upcoming season, 46 PBA Tour champions fall into that category. Because there are 46, the remaining places on the roster will be filled by the most current title winners who did not attain “touring player” status last season. The current list (see below) may change during the 2012-13 season. Any new champion will bump the last eligible player – Robert Smith is currently on the “bubble” – off the eligibility list. Additionally, all former TOC champions have a lifetime invitation to compete. Any past champions who currently are not Touring Players (see below) who elect to enter would increase the field to more than 48. The 2013 Tournament of Champions will get underway on Wednesday, March 27, with two eight-game qualifying rounds. After a third eight-game round on Thursday, the top 24 players will advance to eight-game match play rounds Thursday evening and Friday. The top five after 48 games advance to Sunday’s ESPN finals. A pro-am program and the PBA Hall of Fame induction dinner will highlight Saturday’s schedule. First prize in the TOC will be $50,000. All players will cash. Last place will pay $1,450. The Tournament of Champions has provided many of the most memorable moments in PBA history – the PBA’s first nationally-televised 300 by Jack Biondolillo in 1967, Don Johnson’s emotional 299 in the title match against Dick Ritger in 1970, Kelly Kulick’s historic victory for women in 2010, Mika Koivuniemi’s 299 on his way to a record $250,000 prize in 2011 are among many others. “The PBA Tournament of Champions has always provided electric moments,” Clark said. “In 2013, we expect more of that kind of drama: 48 champions, 48 games and live nationally-televised finals with history riding on every ball. It’s going to be a great way to conclude the winter segment of our 2012-13 schedule.”

ARLINGTON, Texas - The United States Bowling Congress and 900 Global have agreed on a sponsorship deal making 900 Global the official sponsor of the Showcase Lanes and two new side tournaments being held in conjunction with the 2013 USBC Open and Women's Championships in Reno, Nev. The 900 Global Showcase Lanes will give bowlers the chance to book practice sessions on the tournament lane conditions or get coaching tips from a USBC Silver coach before competing on the main championship lanes. The concept was introduced at the 2012 Open Championships in Baton Rouge, La. For 2013, renovations to the ground floor of the National Bowling Stadium will allow for 10 Showcase Lanes, compared to four lanes at the Baton Rouge River Center in 2012. The additional capacity means more opportunities for bowlers to practice and compete while in the Biggest Little City in the World. Competitors from both the Open and Women's Championships will be able to hone their skills on the exact lane conditions they'll face at their respective tournaments. Traditionally, the lane conditions for the Open and Women's Championships are posted on BOWL.com and available to bowling centers across the country just before the start of each tournament. Matching the oil, lane machine, lane surface and environment are proven challenges, so being able to practice on lanes maintained by the USBC event staff, and so close to the tournament action, will provide an unmatchable opportunity. The one-of-a-kind NBS will welcome more than 50,000 Open Championships competitors, and more than 25,000 bowlers will make their way to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center for the Women's Championships. The 2013 Open Championships will kick off March 1, and the Women's Championships will start April 12. Reservations are recommended for

Average entries show increase in experimental tournament series

Regional Animal Pattern Series Sends 35 Players to PBA World Series of Bowling IV
By Bill Vint - PBA

SEATTLE, Washington – The Professional Bowlers Association’s experimental regional “animal pattern” championship series has produced 35 paid entries into PBA World Series of Bowling IV and a significant increase in the average number of entries in PBA Regional tournaments between March and August of 2012, PBA Director of Regional and Senior Tours John Weber announced. The inaugural animal pattern series featured Cheetah, Viper, Scorpion and Chameleon Championships in each of the PBA’s seven regions (the Shark pattern, the fifth lane condition in the series, was not used in the first-year program). Each event offered an optional entry program, allowing players who elected to do so to compete on specific lane conditions for a paid World Series entry. In addition, the top player in overall competition points in each region – whether or not he paid the optional entry fees – also received a World Series entry. The animal pattern program was introduced by the PBA during the 2008-09 season to provide the bowling public with a method to easily differentiate between the variety of lane conditioning challenges professional bowlers face. It has served as a central part of the World Series of Bowling since the WSOB’s inception in 2009, producing an annual series of animal pattern championships. The animal patterns also are featured in the PBA Experience Sport Bowling league program conducted by the United States Bowling Congress, providing grassroots league and tournament bowlers opportunities to test their skills on the same lane conditions used in PBA competition. The new regional tournament series drew a total of 1,991 entries for 28 events – an average of 71.1 entries per tournament which represents a nine percent increase compared to entries in the more than 170 PBA Regional tournaments conducted over the past year. The Cheetah events drew the highest number of entries in five of the seven regions while Scorpion Championships drew the fewest entries in four of the seven regions. 2012 PBA REGIONAL ANIMAL PATTERN CHAMPIONS (results below include the tournament winner with player who earned optional WSOB berth noted in parenthesis; overall points include the top five players per region who had not won a WSOB entry in an individual event) PBA EAST REGION Rockaway Lanes Chameleon Open: Adam Baer, Gettysburg, Pa.
