67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/25/10 05:45 PM

So far it seems belmonte is pretty dominant. But my two favorite bowlers have a chance at making the show, monacaelli and robert smith. Who wouldn't want to see a robert smith vs jason belmonte for the title?

It's a long way to go still before anyone can guess who will make the show. One squad still needs to bowl 6 more games of Qualifying. Then they cut to the top 25%, and they bowl 9 games and then the top 24 are taken to move on to the match play. That's three rounds of 8 games each, which equals 24 games. Then the after that the top 4 are on the show which will be the stepladder format. A whole lot can happen before now and then.

LOTS of time and bowlers VERY MUCH in the hunt not named in this thread yet.
WRW, Barnes, Allen, Jones, Couch and Monacelli... just to name a few.

Pretty dang cool, because I can imagine the final four will very much earn it by the time the qualifiers are finalized.

Cheers!

I saw that too. He needs a good last round. Pete, Scroggins and Duke are coming on strong. Walter Ray had a bad round too. Fell a bit. I'm rooting for PDW. Couch bowled very well. Personally, I would rather see Pete and Duke both make the show.

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/27/10 05:08 PM

This is why I like long format tournaments. Anybody can bowl good for one or two sets, but the cream rises to the top when the format is longer. I would like to see some best of 3 or best of 5 matches to determine the winner though. It sucks to dominate all week and lose one game and end up in second place.

Of course it sucks, but that's how it works, and I don't see anything wrong with "having to win twice".

I noticed that Dave D'Entremont is doing pretty well this season for being non-exempt. He might qualify for an exemption next season through the non-exempt spot, or even points.

I watched one show several years ago where a breakdown occurred. I think it was an older show maybe from the 90s. They had a major break down on the right lane. I think it was that lane anyways. It took close to half an hour to fix but bowling went on just on two different pairs. They used the left lane on the original pair and then the right lane of the pair to the left. Depending on how a frame went, a mechanic would grab the ball before it got in the return and put it in the return of the other pair to make it easier on the bowlers. I believe the match it happened on was finished like that and by the beginning of the next match it was repaired.

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/28/10 01:55 PM

Haha I thought it was cool to have the tension in Bill O'Neill, kind of like Ryan Shafer in the 1990's where he made a bunch of shows and placed high in every statistical category but didn't win a title, and maybe Brad Angelo in the 2000's.

Hope you do well, desertdog. I, too, wanted to see Scroggins take it but Bill was TOO much. The man was unconscious ! Not sure what ball he was using but it was absolutely murdering the pins ! At any rate, he did very well. Btw, what the hell happened to Jones, fellas ? Seemed like when he switched balls he started throwing very poorly. Jeesh.
Posted by: Calvin Pistorio

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/28/10 04:38 PM

There wasn't any one person on the show I was rooting for more than the other. It would have been nice to see TJ or Couch win a title since neither has for a while. Scroggins could have defended the title successfully and been the second person to defend a US Open title and of course O'neill to win his first major and have more than one title to show for all of the shows he has made in the last several years.

Very suprised how Scroggins bowled today. Was sure he was going to defend the major. O'Neill was nails when it was on the line. Congrats. Disappointed his girlfriend was not in the crowd today. She's a looker. thumbsup
Posted by: Smooth Stroker

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/28/10 06:36 PM

ONeill bowled very well today. I'm surprised at how well he bowls because it sure looks like he's hitting the snot out of the ball at the bottom of his swing. Makes his head move and everything. But he is spot on. He's young enough to keep winning for a while. But as always, that seems to depend on the oil man. The PBA changes the oil set up every year. It seems to affect whoever is winning the most at the time. Glad to see Scroggs lose. Nothing personal. I'm just not a big fan of the mitt. If he lost the brace, I'd have nothing against him.
Posted by: JackZ

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/28/10 08:35 PM

Okay, what Oneill threw worked, what Scroggins threw was more dull and seemed to work if he threw it right. Jones looked disgusted with what he was throwing, like after the first game none of his stuff worked. I did notice that when he moved in and hit the same mark (10 board) he seemed to carry, but he couldn't repeat?
Posted by: Joe Bowler

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/28/10 09:07 PM

Not to take anything away from Bill O Neill, I think he bowled great, but this was one of those times it was a disadvantage to be a lefty. By the final match, the lane had opened up somewhat on the right side. But, you will never hear that from Randy Pederson.

I wonder what was going through Tommy Jones mind when he stopped throwing the Mission. He looked like the guy to beat when was throwing it.
Posted by: BIGHMW

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 02/28/10 11:01 PM

Congrats to The Real Deal himself.

He had the right look from the get-go, but I also liked his mental makeup as well. After opening in the 2nd frame, he kept his composure and relayed to all of us that "there's a lot of game left", and sure enough, he was right.

Scroggy left back-to-back 3-9's on lane 70 and a blowout 7-10 as well, and Bill jumped all over it, finishing with the last 10 in a row.
Posted by: Dennis Michael

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/01/10 12:11 AM

From what I see and what the difference between Kuleck and Jones did, the Mission is hard to control for the higher rev bowler. It worked well for Kelly, but certainly not Tommy.

The Nasty, on the other hand rolls just the way O'Niel rolled it. Mine does, I just need to be a lot more consistent where I roll it.
Posted by: Jay R.

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/01/10 02:45 AM

The Real Deal, Bill. O'Neill! He is the man! I don't know what it is really but ever since his first couple of shows last season he's grown on me. Now I couldn't be happier that he won his first title this year and even another one. The truth is there's not too many people I would root for before him.

I was literally shouting and cheering for him. I was in my glory when Scroggy left the 7-10. I'm not sure if O'Neill had it won before that but I knew it then. The fact that it was a major makes this win that much cooler. Now I really hope he wins the POY Award.

I was rooting for Jones against Couch but I found myself pretty much indifferent when he faced Bill. So everyone that I wanted to win actually did, for once.

Did you miss the part where he had the front 6, and a 245? He was making bad shots in the 2nd game, plain and simple. No ball will look good if you miss your breakpoint by 3 boards on the US Open pattern.

And of course, Fagan won the week after Kulick with the Mission. Is he low rev?
Posted by: spectral

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/01/10 10:02 AM

desertdog, i simply don't like his style and also no the way he looks (i know shallow but i can't help it). It's not that i don't like low rev players because i like to watch norm duke when he's playing the ouside with little hand.
Posted by: Dennis Michael

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/01/10 10:25 AM

Well, cgeorg, you witnessed what I have seen often. After a few games are bowled on the lanes, and the oil is spread, I have noticed the Mission getting too much friction, too early. A high rev bowler would have trouble with that, and even getting to the breakpoint.

It is much more sustainable and controllable to the stroker.
Posted by: sk8shorty01

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/01/10 03:21 PM

But Tommy Jones was missing the break point on both sides of the line, he didn't just have the ball hooking up early, there were shots where he was flat missing target left and right.

Michael Fagan threw the Mission quite often during the week in which he won his first title. Of course its not a ball you can throw every game because its aggressive but he made a living with that ball that week.

I think Tommy missed the transition and started trying to force a line to work rather than just moving a little bit and sending it to the same breakpoint. The CATS showed it, after he goes high and leaves the 3-10 he did not move, just threw it harder and added some loft.

I have to take my hat off to Scroggy, he has really improved and has worked hard on his game. He doesn't fall off the shot or pull through like he used to and made a bunch of really good shots that just didn't carry, not that he was going to beat a 267, on that pattern not many if any were going to beat that.

Much of the reason people hate on Scroggy and other left handers is the God-awful camera angles they use on ESPN. They shoot every bowler from the right and from in front for some reason. The shot from the gutter is just the dumbest camera angle for watching bowling.

When left handers are on they tend to start every shot from the gutter up shot then switch half way through the shot to the up to the right and behind where you can't see the bowler's swing or the target they hit, or what the ball did getting there. It's really not worth watching left handed bowlers bowl on ESPN.

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/01/10 08:05 PM

It's not so much hating on Scroggy as it is just liking his opponent better. And I couldn't really tell you why I like or don't like someone on tour. Either I like what I see, or I don't. With Scroggy, yeah I'm not a big fan compared to others but I am impressed with his ability to make shots and whatnot. Top 2 in two consecutive US Opens before the TV show and top 2 after they're over is nothing to frown upon either.

I didn't realize it until later but I was especially glad O'Neill won because it puts him in a good position to win the POY award.

O'Neill is definatley making a run but I am rooting for WRWJ for POY. For the simple reason, the guy is 50 years old and is beating much younger guys than him. He is playing at such a high level and has been there week after week making TV finals or knocking on the door of TV finals. He still has the hunger in his heart and in his eyes. My biggest dissapoinments this year have been Wes Mallot, Pete Weber and Sean Rash. I would have expected these 3 to make more shows than they have. I think PDW is just getting a lil more washed up....but god I love him!!!!!! Sean Rash just seems to have his head turned around backwards. He has been making critical mistakes the last 2 years and I don't have any tour stats, but he has single handedly missed tons of easy multi spare and single spare opportunities to convert. As far a Mallot goes, I haven't really followed him that much this season....Is it just a bad year this year? Did he just get real luckly last year? Or has his performance last season and during the King of Bowling make his head too big?

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/03/10 11:17 AM

Sean rash I have no idea where hes at this year. All I know is that I gave him the official "chris barnes" title after watching his last few tv appearances. Mallot it seems has been either hit or miss this season, not sure why. And PDW is bowling pretty good, he made a great run at the telecast for the us open last week.

Your right PDW is bowling well....I guess its just me wanting to see the dominant PDW again. Making lots of TV finals and winning a couple events a season...get back in POY race.

Re: 67th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open - 03/03/10 04:09 PM

I believe Wes has finished high in most of the tournaments just not high enough to make the show. Sometimes it's like that. One game of forcing a ball or line could be the issue, or a slight timing issue.

Your right PDW is bowling well....I guess its just me wanting to see the dominant PDW again. Making lots of TV finals and winning a couple events a season...get back in POY race.


haha I'd be happy to just see some violent crotch-chops on t.v. again.


Thats why I love him....he brngs that energy and emotion...Thats how I like my bowlers...Energetic, emotional, chain smoking, boozing addicted to pain killers, 4 wives later(PDW isn't addicted to pain killers that I know of....LOL).....LOVE PDW....

Wes Malott is still bowling at a high level he is just missing the shows.

He is in 5th place in points and 10th in the POY race.

This is a good reason why many should consider getting Xtra Frame. A lot of people are curious about whats going on with Tommy Jones and Wes Malott and why are they struggling so much this year. Many don't realize that both of those two are finishing in the top 10 almost every week.

You can get the service for an entire year for 69.99 I think it is.

Xtra frame starts during qualifying and goes all the way to the TV show.

You can friend PBA on facebook during the live portions of play on Xtra frame and ask questions and they will answer them. Say you want to know how Brian Voss had his Nomad drilled (if he threw it during the week) you could post it on their facebook page and they will go find out, or possibly show you the layout as well.

They will switch cameras at fan request to find particular bowlers, its a pretty cool service I think.
