I wanted to give a shout out to 21-year old Allen (A.J.) Rice II for his excellent performance in his first-ever Masters. The two-handed, lefty amateur won his first match against Martin Larsen 737-683. He bowled great his second match, but ran into the ultimate buzzsaw, #1 qualifier Wes Malott, and lost 732-668. With barely a rest in between, he faced two-time Masters champion Doug Kent, and lost a close match 698-695. Unfortunately, that's the luck of the draw with the Master tournament. To be the best, you have to beat the best. I am confident that A.J. Rice will have his day, and a promising career awaits him if he chooses to turn pro.

There were lots of other great, memorable matches. For updated results, see http://scores.bowl.com/2013-Masters/2013MastersBrackets.pdf

I am watching the live scoring for Belmo and PB3 right now. Belmo would have a had a 300 if not for the dang 7th frame with an open.

Belmo is the number 1 seed with Stuart number 2. Wes is the 3 seed, PBIII the fourth and Mika held on in the final frame to be fifth seed.

It was a great telecast, drama in all the matches, I liked that they put in the conversations with the coaches and players during the TV time out, wish they would do more of that kind of thing.

From my past experiences, I can say a few things.

First, you don't know how quickly the leader board can change. Sean Rash was way in front after day 1, then fell from sight. While Wes came from behind to lead the qualifying.

Second, there is nothing you can do when your opponent is hot in elimination. Mika could just watch PBIII roll strike after strike in their match. PBIII never gave him an opening.

Third, being a 1 or 2 seed is no picnic, as you wait for the others to finish. Anxiety builds and you often never get into rythym, like Williams who had the lowest game in elmination.

Fourth, at the same time a bad game from an opponent often takes its toll on you. Wes rolled his lowest game against Williams. He rolled to the level of his competition.

Fifth, gotta give Belmo credit. He waited for the first 3 matches to finish, then came in to take care of business. And, it wasn't decided until the final ball was rolled. Unbelievable pressure, and supurb performance.

My favorite line from the show, from Randy Pederson, after Jason Belmonte rolled the third strike in the tenth frame..."Well, you can't throw it any better. I mean, he let go of that ball, and there wasn't a hair on his head that moved when he let go of it." That's the way to post a shot.

It was a good telecast. I liked that the players had a bit of banter at times. PBIII and Malot especially and that they showed some of the coaching and the banter. It makes it more fun to watch and makes the players more likable.
