Daugherty wins PBA

Scorpion Championship

“Thumbless” delivery proves the difference as

Floridian wins first PBA Tour title

LAS VEGAS — After bowling

a Professional Bowlers Association

record-low 100 game

in his only previous television

appearance, Tom Daugherty of

Wesley Chapel, Fla., redeemed

himself in the Bowlers Journal

Scorpion Championship,

winning three consecutive

matches including a 200-182

victory over top qualifier Osku

Palermaa of Finland, to capture

his first PBA Tour title at South

Point Hotel and Casino.

The Bowlers Journal

To my bowling family

I can never thank you

enough for the support, kindness

and compassion you have

shown Emma and I in the last

few months. Danny would be

extremely proud of the way

the bowling community came

together in someone’s time of

need, even if it did not involve

his family. I am overwhelmed

by everything that has happened

the last few months,

good and bad. From thoughts

and prayers to donations and

fundraisers, I will never be

able to express how much they

mean to me. Knowing that you

are there for us has brought

me comfort. I am proud to be a

part of this family.

Thank you for everything

you have done,

John Szczerbinski and Danielle McEwan champions at

the 2013 USBC Team USA Trials.

Szczerbinski, McEwan

take Team USA Trials titles

HENDERSON, Nev. —

John Szczerbinski of North

Tonawanda, N.Y., and Danielle

McEwan of Stony Point, N.Y.,

emerged as the champions

Monday at the 2013 United

States Bowling Congress Team

USA Trials and will represent

the United States at the QubicaAMF

World Cup later this

year.

Szczerbinski held on in a

tight championship match,

defeating defending champion

Marshall Kent of Yakima,

Wash., 218-211, while McEwan

successfully defended her

title with a 267-194 win over

Diandra Asbaty of Chicago at

Sunset Station's Strike Zone

Bowling Center.

Kent had a chance to take

the title and continue his reign

as Team USA Trials champion

but needing a double in the

final frame, he left the 2-4-5

on his first shot to concede the

title to Szczerbinski.

"My goal coming here this

week was just to make Team

USA again," said Szczerbinski,

who earned his third term

on Team USA. "Winning this

tournament is just icing on the

cake and being able to go to

the World Cup? It's just hard to

explain everything I'm feeling."

In the women's title match,

McEwan rolled to her second

All Star Bowl grand

opening, page 6

consecutive title with ease,

knocking off Asbaty, who

earned a spot on Team USA for

a record 15th time.

"It was such a long week,

and I'm completely drained,"

said McEwan, who is now a

two-time Team USA member.

"I remember last year when

I won, it really didn't sink

in until I got back to the

hotel room, and I think that's

happening again. It's just an

amazing feeling."

In the semifinals, Kent took

down John Janawicz of Winter

Haven, Fla., 257-196, while

McEwan defeated Josie Earnest

of Nashville, Tenn., 199-181.

All of the players who

advanced to the stepladder

finals earned automatic spots

on Team USA in 2013 by

surviving a grueling five-day,

30-game format that awarded

points based on the position

they finished in each day.

The National Selection

Committee also announced the

remainder of the Team USA

roster, which was made up

of two men and two women

based on their performance

at the Team USA Trials and

five men and five women who

met eligibility requirements

and submitted resumes for

consideration.

Random Thoughts

I saw a fantastic and inspiring

story on the NBC Today

show last week. It was on a

high school student from Iowa

City who launched a twitter

account focused solely on sending

positive messages. What a

novel concept huh? Jeremiah

Anthony started the account

to fight back against bullying,

and specifically internetbullying.

His thought is that

“it’s easier to find the nice

things in people, instead of

the bad things.” And I couldn’t

agree more. I absolutely loved

the story, and the response

from the kids at the school has

been overwhelmingly positive

and it’s quite possibly making

a difference. Basically he just

tweets real, truthful, positive

comments to his schoolmates.

It’s as simple as that, and who

doesn’t like a little compliment

to start off their day. He’s

recruited several other friends,

and they have started the twitter

handle, @westhighbros.

Go ahead and follow them, @

theBowlingNewsNet does. It’s

a real pay-it-forward story, and

one that we bowlers could use

as well. The next time you

Mark London’s Just Paying

Attention column this week

is must read material. He

interviews super-coach Rick

Benoit to discuss his brother

Bob’s remarkable 300 game

in the title match of the 1988

Quaker State Open. I remember

that 300 game vividly. I lived

to watch the PBA on Saturday

afternoons and this was a great

one. I watched the show with

Brad Ellis at his parent’s house,

and I have always regarded

that as one of the best games

I’ve ever seen. Rick gives some

very interesting background on

Bob’s game and how it evolved

into helping him become a

great champion. Now we need

to interview Pete McCordic to

tell us about his TV 300. Not

the best game I’ve ever seen,

but easily the most exciting

and dramatic. Never have I

seen a man shake so much,

makes me smile just thinking

about how great that moment

was.

What is your all-time high

average? 221 last year.

How long have you been

bowling? I started when I was 8

yrs-old, my dad got me started.

I bowled until I was about 24

then quit for about four years.

I am now back and averaging

about 215-220. My cousin is

Ernest Harwell III and has over

80 sanctioned 300 games. He

used to be my main coach and

taught how to properly throw

the ball.

Most memorable bowling moment?

It has to be this series.

When I realized I had the 800

in the 9th frame I had to take

a moment just to let it sink in.

I have had lots of close calls

and to finally shoot 800 was

wonderful.

What lessons has the

game taught you? I would say

patience. As a younger kid

I would get angry, but as I

have gotten older I understand

that being patient and staying

focused works best.

Wanda Parker

This week’s high female is

Wanda Parker who shot 236-

246-280 for a 762 series in the

Tuesday High Rollers league

at AMF Showplace Garland

Lanes. Wanda says she has a

new breath of life with bowling

and still loves the sport.

Where were you born?

Toledo, OH where they used

to have a tour stop. I moved to

Texas in 1990. Graduated from

College, and moved to Texas.

We have much better weather

here.

What ball did you throw?

The Storm IQ Tour. I can’t put

it down, I have been throwing

it everywhere since October.

It’s a very versatile ball.

Thoughts on the big series? I

got some new equipment. I’ve

changed up my arsenal and

found some balls that are more

conducive to my game. I moved

away from Storm equipment a

few years ago, but my teammate

convinced me to get that

ball.

What is your all-time

favorite movie? Major League it

is a classic sports movie. I also

like The Program.

What is your favorite

restaurant? McDonalds, how

scary is that!

Where did you take your best

vacation? LA. I got to go to the

Staples and the old Forum. We

didn’t get to go to a game but

got to hangout outside, it was

playoff season.

What is your favorite song

of all time? Anita Baker is my

favorite musician.

What’s the best advice you’ve

ever received? Anything worth

having is worth the work. That

is something I have always

heard from the adults I grew

up around.

If you were the commissioner

of all things bowling for a day

what would you change? The

format of the US Open. I would

like to make it more fair for

amateurs. We need to limit the

number of balls you can use.

THE BOWLING NEWS | Thursday, January 17, 2013 | Page 3

You should only be able to use

the balls that you checked in

on the first day. It would level

the playing field a little bit.

Favorite hobby besides bowling?

Just listening to music,

all different kinds. I have XM

radio and just like to listen

to everything. And of course

Just Paying

Attention By Mark London

Mark@TheBowlingNews.net

His older brother Bob was

at the end of his first PBA Tour

stop after taking two years

off for a major overhaul of his

game. Rick Benoit had seen

first-hand the work Bob did

starting with a 10-pound ball,

then a 12, and then 15, learning

to generate more rotational

torque to the ball, increasing

entry angle to the pocket and

through the pins. Results to

this point brought Bob from

limited success to top seed of

the 1988 PBA Quaker State

Open stepladder finals. Rick

had a front row seat at Forum

Bowl that fateful Saturday

afternoon, about to be shown

nationwide on ABC Television.

Bob Benoit

Rick Benoit

Little did he know on that

day, January 23, 1988, his life

would be forever changed, too.

It evolved into the world-class

coaching career that continues

to this day.

Rick recently reflected

rather philosophically on the

events leading up to one of

the most amazing stories to a

TV 300 game in PBA history.

Although Bob did bowl league

at Forum Bowl in prior years,

there are a few details even

long-time Metroplex bowlers

may not know.

“Many know of Bob’s

reinvention of his game, but

few know that Bob also built

a successful business during

this time as well. Bob owned

and operated his own auto

body shop and it was not an

easy decision to go back out

on tour. I can tell you that the

entire family was not behind

the decision to shut down the

successful business to follow

his dream. I can tell you of

our conversation where I said

Bob you have to follow your

dreams. If you don’t, you will

regret it in future years. Do not

worry about success or failure

just follow your dreams, you

will be good at whatever you

do,” offered Rick Benoit.

It was at this point Rick’s

theories of ball motion could

explain what Bob was doing

with his new release and roll,

theories that form the basis for

his teachings that have taken

him around the world more

than a few times. So how did

Rick come up with these?

The Dallas/Fort Worth

area and the PBA Southwest

Region made Bob the bowler

he became and I look back on

those years and realize that it

also gave me my career as a

coach. If anybody was to do the

research, I promise you that

era and the bowlers that were a

part of it were as special as any

group to ever impact the PBA

tour,” Benoit added. “Oh what a

different time it was. The days

of urethane, static weights and

talk of pin carry. I will say

this; I still see ball motion today

the same way I saw it back

then. The only difference is it

is on a much wider scale. Ball

roll creates the special player

and what Bob had was a very

unique roll that allowed him

to see the lane and pin carry

differently. During those years,

we spoke often about pin carry

while today most bowlers talk

about balls and lane play. Bob,

as with many special bowlers

back then, could get their ball

to hit by what many bowlers

considered to be “roll out.”

Believe me, it was not a roll

out, it was just another part of

transition and Bob could use a

part of the pocket that scared

other bowlers. Bob could stay

ahead of the moves because he

had both sides of the pocket,

both light and heavy, he knew

it and would use that as part of

his strategy against anybody he

would face. Seeing the distance

where the ball would get in

to a roll was more important

than hitting specific board and

attacking that distance with a

certain angle was a priority.

That combination was the focus,

and believe it or not that is

still a conscious thought every

time I am helping a bowler.”

Rick was Brunswick’s

representative on the PBA Tour

in the late 90s and early 2000s,

helping numerous players

(even a few regional players

like myself) with his cutting

edge insight of ball angles and

PBA titles. “The Quaker State

Open was the first tournament

back for Bob and talk about

a dream. All anybody has to

do is watch a replay of the

show and realize how special

it was. I knew of the hard

work Bob put in, I knew of the

everyday challenges, I knew of

the concerns that were part of

the decision, and when it all

unfolded in front of the camera

it became a storybook reality.

Nobody could have imagined

this would happen, including

all of us who believed so

strongly in Bob as a person

or athlete. I honestly don’t

remember the event but I do

remember all the things that

surrounded it. And I am proud

of him for doing what many of

us only talk about doing. What

was a dream became a reality

only because his love for the

game was strong enough to

overpower those that said it

would be a mistake,” said Rick.

Bob Benoit defeated Mark

Roth 300-255 to win the 1988

Quaker State Open. He remains

the only bowler to roll a title

match 300 game in his first

game on national television.

History was as little as 12 shots

away. And that’s all it took.

Grand opening for

All Star Bowl in Ennis

All Star Bowl in Ennis has

opened its doors again thanks

to the Cathey family, owners of

Red Bird Lanes in Duncanville.

“This area is going to continue

to grow and everything

has been trending towards

south of Dallas. So, I thought

it was a great opportunity to

open another center without

the cost of building a new one.

Our plans are to put in laser

tag and have the facility geared

towards a family entertainment

center so there is something to

do for everyone in the family,”

said Billy Joe Cathey, Managing

Partner.

It took a lot of hard work to

get the center cleaned up and

operational as it had sat idle for

some time under bank ownership.

Red Bird bowlers volunteered

their time and skills to

help with the renovations such

as Michael Brackney - electrical,

Patrick Sliger - plumbing,

Jimmy Travnicek - a/c, Rodney

Brooks – phone tech, and

Clifton Carrington - doors.

All Star Bowl will start short

season and winter leagues

this week and expect to have

leagues five nights a week.

The Cathey’s also plan to grow

their youth program as well as

getting the high school bowling

program back at the center.

“I would like to invite everyone

to come out and check

us out. We will start hosting

tournaments to get the good

bowlers in this area involved in

bowling again,” said Billy Joe.

Billy Joe did have one more

surprise up his sleeve on Saturday

as he proposed to longtime

girlfriend Lauren Daniel during

the Grand Opening festivities,

and yes she accepted.

“I’m proud of all their hard

work and their excitement.

I’m proud for my family. We

had a lot of people donating

their time and we can’t thank

them enough,” said owner Lois

Cathey of Billy Joe and Lauren.

Billy Joe would like to thank

Jeff, Jeffrey and Jennifer for

keeping Red Bird going; Rick

and Patti Holloway for their endless

hours of help; all of the staff

at All Star Bowl and my mom,

Lois, for making it possible.

Lusk catching bowling fever

5-yr old AJ Lusk of San Antonio looks to be a bowling prodigy

BJ International magazine

celebrates 100 years

CHICAGO - Bowlers Journal

International (BJI), the longestrunning

sports magazine in

America, is celebrating its

100th anniversary

throughout 2013.

“We have been

looking forward to

2013 for quite some

time,” said Luby

Publishing Inc. President

Keith Hamilton.

“This is a special

time for the magazine and the

industry.”

Hamilton noted that BJI’s

turning 100 is a great tribute

to bowling: “One industry

has supported one magazine

through two World Wars,

a Great Depression, several

recessions and 9/11. This is

a story that we want to tell

to the mainstream media - to

spotlight bowling in a positive

and loyal light.”

As part of the celebration,

each issue will contain a

feature of historical significance,

leading up to the actual

anniversary issue in November

2013. Here is a sampling of

features scheduled:

All-Time Vintage Covers

By Leisha Murr

I know I talked about the

PBA last week, but I just

have to do it again this week

because I am so excited to see

some of the new PBA League

team competition starting next

week, Jan. 19-27, in Detroit.

The PBA Winter Swing will

consist of 4 tournaments, the

PBA Carmen Salvino, Mark

Roth and Don Carter Classics,

along with the Earl Anthony

PBA Players Championship.

The 125 player field for the

Winter Swing had reserved

spots for all 48 players on the

8 PBA League teams as their

individual daily qualifying

scores will also count towards

the team competition.

The eight teams are each

captained by a “Franchise

Player.” These players were

the top 8 PBA competition

point leaders from the 2011-12

season. The franchise players

had a league draft and picked

five fellow tour competitors and

an alternate to complete their

teams. Each team will have a

celebrity owner who will pick

their team names and logos.

Besides name and money, I

wonder what other presence

the owners will have in the

league, if any.

The first team, captained

by Norm Duke is the Dallas

Strikers with celebrity owner

TO- Terrell Owens. Duke chose

You meet All Types at the

Int’l Bowling Museum & Hall of Fame

(near the Six Flags in Arlington)

All ages will enjoy the colorful,

5,000-year history of bowling. The

collection of historical artifacts and

interactive presentations is the

perfect outing for a family, school

group, or club. The Hall of Fame

section of the museum is a dynamic

venue that honors the legends g of

the game, past and present. The

museum is an interactive

experience designed for people of

all ages. Explore this exciting game

from the time of ancient Egypt

up until il the h very present.

Rhino Page, Amleto Monacelli,

Bryon Smith, and Mike Machuga

to fill his team and the

supplemental pick was Mike

Wolfe.

Pete Weber’s team consists

of Tommy Jones, Scott

Norton, Jack Jurek, and John

Szczerbinski with Brad Angelo

as an alternate. This team was

picked up after Norton’s recent

win by sports icon and founder

the Women’s Sports Foundation

Billie Jean King. King is

also the co-founder of World

TeamTennis which is included

in the team’s name and logo,

the WTT KingPins out of New

York City.

Actor and comedian Kevin

Hart is the celebrity owner of

the Philadelphia Hitmen with

franchise player Bill O’Neill.

Drafted to his team are Mika

Koivuniemi, Chris Loschetter,

Mike DeVaney, and Dick Allen

with Dino Castillo as the

team’s supplemental pick.

Jason Belmonte’s team

is owned by professional

basketball player Chris Paul

who plays for the Los Angeles

Clippers. Not surprisingly his

team is named L.A. X. Joining

Belmonte are Wes Malott,

Andres Gomez, Parker Bohn

III, Dave Wodka, and alternate

Ildemaro Ruiz.

player Jerome Bettis who lists

bowling as one of his passions

as a youth in Detroit is the

owner of the Motown Muscle

with captain Mike Fagan.

Adding to Fagan’s scores for

the team qualifying are Tom

Smallwood, Mike Scroggins,

Ronnie Russell, and Jesse Buss.

Fagan’s supplemental pick for

the team is Kelly Kulick.

Chris Barnes’ team draft

picks include a couple of

Englishmen, Dom Barrett

and Stuart Williams, as well

as a couple of fellow Wichita

State University Alums Josh

Blanchard and Nathan Bohr.

His alternate pick was Jon

VanHees. Actor and comedian

Chris Hardwick, who is the

son of PBA Hall of Famer

Billy Hardwick, is the owner

of Barnes’ team the Silver Lake

Atom Splitters. Chris Hardwick

started an “All Star Celebrity

Bowling” challenge on the

Nerdist YouTube channel where

celebrity teams compete for

charity. If I ever make it to

California, I want to check

out the Spare Time Bar in the

Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

with just 2 lanes where these

are filmed. Looks like a really

neat venue.

Professional football

linebacker for the Pittsburgh

Steelers, LaMarr Woodley is

the owner for the Pittsburgh

Jack Rabbits with franchise

player Osku Palermaa.

Palermaa chose a few other

international players to join

his team including Martin

Larsen, Dan MacLelland, and

Thomas Larsen. Joining them

are Patrick Allen and Anthony

LaCaze as the alternate.

The 8th team has not

yet found an owner, but is

captained by the current PBA

Player of the year Sean Rash.

Other team members are Ryan

Ciminelli, Ryan Shafer, Walter

Ray Williams Jr., Jason Sterner,

and supplemental pick Tom

Hess. Looks like another strong

team; I wonder why no one has

picked them up. You have to

wonder if Rash is hard to work

with considering he was also

passed over in the selection

process based on resume to

join Team USA last week.

Anyway, I’m looking

forward to seeing these teams’

strategy and working together

in the team competition. Will

they help each other out during

the qualifying to boost their

team’s score even though they

are also competing individually

at the same time, or only

work together as they start the

Baker team competitions? I’ll

be tuning in on Xtra Frame to

find out and look forward to

the first team round on ESPN

Sunday, Jan. 27th.

Ohh, and if any of you have

been missing Jackie Bowling,

the rumor from a very reliable

source is that she will be

joining iab TV (IABowling on

YouTube) at the winter swing

in Detroit.

DAUGHERTY WINS

Continued from Page 1

television average by 88 pins in

the process.

After sneaking into the

stepladder finals in fourth position

by four pins over Rhino

Page of Dade City, Fla., Daugherty

ruined Jason Sterner’s

television debut, eliminating

the McDonough, Ga., resident,

199-177. He then romped past

Australian two-handed star

Jason Belmonte, 256-187, and

threw a critical double in the

fifth and sixth frames of the

title match to defeat Palermaa,

getting help from the Finnish

two-handed star when he had

consecutive opens in the sixth

and seventh frames.

Ironically, Daugherty put

together the best performance

of his professional career while

glancing at a very large “100”

in a graphic above the lanes

promoting “Bowlers Journal

100th Anniversary.”

“I want to thank Bowlers

Journal for reminding me all

day of my 100 game,” Daugherty

said with a grin at the

conclusion of the match.

While all four finalists use

power techniques that allow

them to generate significant

hooking power, the key was

slower ball speed, a result of

Daugherty not using his thumb

in his delivery.

The difference between

me and the two-handers is

my ball speed,” Daugherty

said. “They throw it 100 miles

per hour, so I can actually do

something they can’t and that’s

a slow hook. I knew if I could

get by Sterner, I’d have a good

chance. I knew (Belmonte and

Palermaa) weren’t going to

bowl anything. They might say

they threw some bad shots,

but I didn’t think either one of

them could shoot 200 because

of their ball reactions.

They couldn’t get inside

as far as I was because of

their ball speed. Their ball

would never hook from there,”

Daugherty added. “As soon as

Belmo tried to move in just a

little, he missed the headpin. It

was easy for me to do, too, but

on my good shots, I could get

the ball to make the turn. They

couldn’t do that.”

Daugherty admitted he was

nervous in making his second

career television appearance.

There was a lot of nerves

going on the first game. The

three-bagger kinda calmed me

down, but leaving that 3-6-9-10

in the first frame was unnerving.

I didn’t want to start with

an open,” he said after successfully

converting the difficult

spare. “That’s all I thought

about after making the show:

not starting with an open and

that’s not the spare you want to

shoot at in the first frame.”

Daugherty said he was

thrilled to win his first PBA

Tour title because it made him

eligible to bowl in the 2013 PBA

Tournament of Champions under

revised eligibility rules that will

only allow PBA Tour champions

to enter. He had bowled in the

TOC previously under rules

that allowed PBA Regional title

winners to participate.

“I was so disappointed when

they changed the TOC criteria,”

Daugherty said. “I made a lot of

money in that tournament the past

two years, but now I’m back.”

Thoughts on the big series?

I knew I was close but nobody

was really paying attention,

so when I added it up it was a

nice surprise. I’m still bowling

I just bowl the three games

I’m just happy to have a great
