The first major of the season is coming up, with preliminary qualifying taking place at Thunderbowl tomorrow (Monday 31 Aug).
Norm Duke is hoping to win his third consecutive World Championship, and tie Jason Couch and Earl Anthony's record for defending major tournaments. Chris Barnes, Wes Malott, Jack Jurek, and Thomas Smallwood are coming off amazing runs at the World Series of Bowling (making match play in all 5 animal pattern tournaments, with Barnes making the cut at the Motor City Open as well). Walter Ray Williams is going for his fourth World Championship title this decade.
On my fantasy team, I have
Chris Barnes- the obvious choice (maybe except for Norm Duke)
Steve Jaros- an amazingly talented bowler that just needs to make more TV
Ryan Shafer- another extremely talented bowler that just needs to win on TV
more (and also my personal favorite to watch)
Dino Castillo- One of the best bowlers not to have made a show.
Doug Kent- Does very well in majors
It's too bad that the tournament is limited to 120 entries this year.
