French Senior Open 2017 – Champions: Lynne Walker and Georgio Desimio

French Senior Open 2017

ISBT Tour 2017 Stop 9

Planet Bowling, Lomme, France

18th to 22nd October 2017

The ninth stop on the 2017 ISBT tour was a return to France, this time to Planet Bowling in Lomme. There is always a strong entry for this tournament, with 89 men and 25 ladies taking part. The format for the tournament was a single 6 game qualifying block, with unlimited re-entries. For those not able to qualify through the main leaderboard, there were additional opportunities through Scratch score, Turbo games and a Desperado squad. Age bonus started at age 51 (1 pin per game), then increased a pin for every additional year of age with no limit. As with all ISBT events, there was a separate division for ladies.

Squads started on Wednesday, and scoring was led by Jean Marc Lebon (France) with 1362 including age bonus, ahead of Arthur Dähn (Germany) with 1307. Corinne Poux (France) was top lady of the day with 1110.

Thursday’s squads were led by Roger Pieters (Belgium) with 1401, just ahead of an improved block by Arther Dähn of 1389. Corinne Poux was again top lady with 1155.

Friday saw Ulf Lönngren (Sweden) post a great block of 1453, with two other bowlers Ron Oldfield (England) and Giorgio Desimio (Belgium) just breaking the 1400 mark. Top lady was Bianca Völkl-Brandt (Germany) with 1216, just ahead of Claribel Muis (Netherlands)

There were three final squads on Saturday, and in the first Ron Oldfield slightly improved with a score of 1419. Martina Beckel (Germany) also made a good start with 1202. In the second squad, Patrick Rolland (France) joined the 1400 club with a 1405 block, while Bianca Völkl-Brandt improved with 1254, just ahead of Liliane Vintens (Belgium) with 1252.

With the top players getting byes through the first finals rounds, there were a number of players who had already qualified looking to improve their positions in the final squad. André Geelen (Belgium) was top, but his 1378 would not be enough for a top 8 place. Martina Beckel booked her place in the top 4 with 1239, but an improved block of 1216 for Angie Brown (England) left her in fifth place, just missing out on a top 4 place and direct entry to the final round.

At the end of qualification, Ulf Lonngren led with 1453, ahead of Ron Oldfield, Patrick Rolland and Giorgio Desimio. These four would go straight to the final. The next four places would go directly to the semi-final, with the remainder of the top 24 qualifying for the quarter final round. These were joined by three Scratch, three Turbo and 2 Desperado qualifiers. Ladies qualification was led by Bianca Völkl-Brandt with 1254, ahead of Liliane Vintens, Martina Beckel, and Nadia Goron (France), all of whom would go directly to the final round. The next four bowlers would go to the semi-final round, to be joined by two Turbo, one Scratch, and one Desperado bowlers.

10 men and 4 women took part in the 1 game Desperado shootout. Ralf Hughes (England) won this with 233, ahead of Uwe Tscharke (Germany). Odile Verlinde (France) found a good game of 206 to gain the last place in the ladies’ finals.

The men in positions 9 to 24, plus the other qualifiers had an early start on Sunday morning in the quarter-final round of four games. Alan Keddie (Scotland) was clear winner of this round, helped by a fine 299 in his last game. Gary Barlow (England) was the twelfth placed bowler, and last to make the next round with 879.

In the semi-final round, the twelve qualifiers were joined by qualifiers five to eight for a further four game block. Lol Ellis (England) was top with 1007, well clear of the rest of the field. The cut for the final was Dominique De Nolf (Belgium) with 857.

The ladies outside of the top four bowled their semi-final round at the same time, and Karin Lischka (Germany) was top with 810, ahead of Angie Brown, Pépita Jacques (France), and Lynne Walker (Wales). These four would go forward to the final.

In the men’s final, Ian Buckland (England) took a narrow lead after two games over Giorgio Desimio and Peter Knopp (Germany), thanks to a fine 289 game. After three games, Ian Buckland had opened up the lead to 11 pins over Giorgio Desimio. None of the top three players could find the really big game to seal the win, a 216 from Giorgio Desimio left Ian Buckland needing to double in the tenth frame to win, he made the first strike, but couldn’t find the second, leaving Giorgio Desimio as champion, ahead of Ian Buckland and Peter Knopp.

In the women’s final, both Lynne Walker and Martina Beckel started strongly with games of 257 and 247. Their second games were not as good, allowing the field to close up slightly. In the third game, Lynne Walker found yet another 257 for a 701 scratch three game block to now have a 32 pin lead over Martina Beckel going into the last game. A solid closed game of 214 secured the win for Lynne Walker, ahead of a fast improving Angie Brown, who recovered from a 150 first game with 703 scratch over the final three games to gain second place. Martina Beckel easily held on to third place.

The next stop on the 2017 tour is at the Flanders Senior Open at EuroBowling in Deurne, Belgium, France. The tournament runs from the 30th October to 5th November. Full details are available at the ISBT web site, http://www.isbtbowlingtour.eu/
