Just to clarify, the higher seed in the Masters picks a lane, both bowlers bowl the first game on that lane only, then move to the other lane of the pair and keep doing so until a bowler wins the match (forgot if it was best of five or best of seven).

In qualifying for the team of five event, usually a bowler "sits out", but bowls with the extra bowlers for his/her all-events score. Normally, a team will have two bowlers sit, one in each three-game block. All qualifying, including singles and doubles, is six games, with the all-events score based on each bowler's total for the 24 games. The top 16 all-events scores qualify for the Masters.

Wanted to note something as the event approaches later this month...if he made his national team, a bowler you're going to want to watch on the men's side is Choi Bok-Eum of Korea. He's been one of the brightest stars of international bowling for years, yet most bowling fans in America and Europe never see him except for a world championship event because he doesn't compete on either continent's pro tour.

Also, the bowlers change pairs after each game in qualifying, even in the events with multiple bowlers (doubles, trios, and team).

The team managers' meetings are currently in progress, and Marios Nicolaides will disclose the two oil patterns to be used in that meeting. While I'm waiting for them, there is now a list of participants on bowl.com, and I'll list some of the more notable names from other countries competing (I've already mentioned Korea's Choi Bok-Eum):

Australia: Jason Belmonte, Carol Gianotti
Canada: Mark Buffa (300 game @ the USBC Open this year), Dan MacLelland
Colombia: Andres Gomez, Clara Guerrero
England: Stuart Williams
Finland: Osku Palermaa
Malaysia: Shalin Zulkifli
Singapore: Jazreel Tan (Two-time collegiate Player of the Year for Wichita St.)
Sweden: Martin Larsen
Venezuela: Amleto Monacelli, Ildemaro Ruiz

Also, for those of you on Twitter, you can follow @WorldBowling for updates.

Still waiting for the patterns, but they're unlikely to be Beijing (short) and Athens (medium), as they were used in the World Senior Championships this past week.

Here are the lane conditions for the World Championships:

Lanes and approaches: Brunswick Pro Anvilane
Lane machine: Kegel ION Sport model with DUO transfer system
Lane conditioner: Kegel Ice
Cleaner: Kegel Defense-C
Oil patterns: Sydney (Short, 33') and Seoul (Medium, 39')

For those interested in such things, the USBC, on the tournament portion of bowl.com, has provided a Kegel map of the bowling center here. (A bowling center's map charts the topography of every lane in the center.)

Official practice takes place today, and competition gets underway tomorrow with men's singles.

Also, the format for the Masters competitions is different than in previous tournaments. It used to be the top 16 in all-events would bowl in a single-elimination bracket in something like a best-of-five or best-of-seven matches, but this time, they're taking the top 24, which will then bowl six games, with the all-events totals carrying over, and cutting to the top 8 for round-robin match play (no position round) with 20 bonus pins for each match win. The top 4 after that will advance to a single-elimination bracket with one-game matches, with the bracket seeded 1-4 and 2-3.

Also, the men's and women's medal rounds in team of five won't take place until the evening of Fri. Aug. 30, after the conclusion of the Masters.

To add about the Masters, they will still use one of the patterns on each lane of a pair (I think BowlingDigital.com said the left lane will have the medium pattern, and the right lane the short pattern), but the bowlers will alternate lanes like a regular match. If you'll remember, Patrick Allen, who won the PBA's National Bowling Stadium Championship some years ago on dual patterns, said after the tournament that that was the hardest thing he's ever had to do in bowling.

hey,
I looked over the lane map guide. can you explain why they rate lane areas in gravitational forces? how do i interpret this data?
are these lane level readings where forces cause gravity to cause the ball to roll left or right on the lane?

thanks

That's exactly what that is, RayRay. The lanes still have to be level to a tolerance, but the subtle differences can make one lane play a bit differently than another. It is, in fact, maybe more important to how a lane plays than the oil pattern applied to it. smile

To expand on my previous post, I heard the USBC's commentators talking about that topic during the last World Men's Championships and saying accounting for the topographical differences in the lanes was like putting on a golf green.

Men's singles results:

Gold: Bill O'Neill (USA)
Silver: Bodo Konieczny (GER)
Bronze: Shin Seung-Hyeon (KOR), Martin Larsen (SWE)

Semifinals: Bill O'Neill def. Shin Seung-Hyeon 181-155, Bodo Konieczny def. Martin Larsen 209-183
Finals: O'Neill def. Konieczny 228-192

If you don't count last year's World Singles Championships, won by Chris Barnes, Bill O'Neill was the defending world champion in this event. In the gold medal match, O'Neill asserted himself with a turkey starting in the 3rd frame, while Konieczny went split-strike-open (missed single pin) in those frames; O'Neill stayed clean from that point to hold the lead.

In qualifying, O'Neill and Konieczny each had a 300 game, while O'Neill also had a 297 game to help him get the #1 seed.

Men's all-events standings after singles

Chris Barnes and John Janawicz would be the only Americans other than Bill O'Neill to qualify for the Masters at this point, while Choi Bok-Eum and Dan MacLelland are the other notables in that position.

Women's singles will be contested tomorrow.
