Is that the rule? I know PBA members can bowl, just not with another PBA member as a doubles partner, and a team can only have 2 members. Stu won a title at last year's WSOB- how long is that restriction in place?

Fin, the rule used to be you were ineligible if you were an "exempt" Tour player, but, b/c of changes to the Tour, they're changing that rule for next year to being ineligible if either you are in the top 50 in PBA Tour points in 2012-13 or if you have won a PBA Tour event in the last two years.

I've mentioned previously that 28 bowlers have had multiple 300 games on the championship lanes over the years, but no one has had three of them until last night, when Craig Szplett (43, Beecher, IL) threw the third of his Open Championships career in team. His previous perfect games came in 1996 (Salt Lake City) and 2005 (Baton Rouge).

The above perfect game was the 30th of the tournament, as Ryan Fauland (32, Longview, WA) also found perfection earlier in the day in his team event. As a bit of trivia, Fauland married his wife, Crystal, in 2004 at the NBS on lanes 27-28; she was present for the 300 game.


I think I spoke about Craig before on here. He runs the Pro Shop at the house where I bowl. One day a few years back, I was looking at bowling records (who doesn't do that with their free time?) and I saw his name on the list for throwing a 300 in multiple tourneys. He was surprised that it hasn't happened more often but that he thought it was cool. I must say that I wasn't shocked to see that he shot another one. The guy is a REALLY good bowler and gets a ton of hand into the ball. The conditions that they put out at Nationals really fits his game. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. That being said, I get my equipment drilled elsewhere smile

Multiple 300 games have happened on the same day at the Open Championships six times previously this year, but Miguel Lopez (23, Wichita, KS) and Ben Laughlin (42, Chandler, AZ) did it in the same squad (late team last night) and on the same pair of lanes as part of the Phoenix Phantoms group out of Register, GA. Lopez's game helped Phoenix Phantoms 2 to 10th place in Regular Team with 3,440, a record 19th team of the year with a score over 3,400 in the event.

Tournament recap

The 2013 Open Championships saw the highest team score in history by Lodge Lanes Too (3,538), but there were only two 800 series recorded in the whole tournament, one of which was the tournament's triplicate record.

Final low-to-cash will come when I see them.
