JOHNSON WINS 2017 GO BOWLING PWBA PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

JOHNSON WINS 2017 GO BOWLING PWBA PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

GREEN BAY, Wis. – United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer Liz Johnson of Deerfield, Illinois, once again confirmed her dominance on the Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour by climbing the stepladder to win the 2017 Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship.

The 43-year-old right-hander opened the championship match Sunday at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley with six consecutive spares before striking on five of her last six shots to outdistance top seed Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey, 228-205.

The $20,000 win marked the ninth major victory of Johnson’s career and fourth since the return of the PWBA Tour in 2015. It also was the second time she’s hoisted the trophy at the PWBA Players Championship (2001) and her second major win at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley, where she won the USBC Queens in 2015.

“I can’t believe this, I’m in awe right now,” said Johnson, who was the runner-up to Colombia’s Clara Guerrero at last year’s Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship in Green Bay. “There’s just something about this house I really like. It treats me well, and I’m incredibly grateful.”

Johnson’s strategy all week in Green Bay included patience and focus on spare shooting, due to the challenge of the lane condition, which wasn’t revealed until the live TV show was on the air.

Spares kept her in the match against Kulick, a 40-year-old right-hander, until a ball change on the right lane late in the game earned her a momentum-shifting double. A washout conversion in the seventh frame of her semifinal match against Lindsay Boomershine of Perry, Utah, kept that game within reach.

Johnson was able to fill 20 pins in the 10th frame to sneak by Boomershine, 181-178.

This week’s event was only the third tournament of the year for Boomershine, who had her first child, Aiden, in February and has been plagued by a knee injury.

The 31-year-old right-hander, who had a runner-up finish on the PWBA Tour in 2016, led by 10 pins at the halfway point Sunday against Johnson but opened twice in the back half of the game to give the two-time reigning PWBA Player of the Year the chance to steal the win.

Johnson started the day with five consecutive strikes before a 10 pin ended her run at perfection, but the string was enough to pull away from Malaysia’s Siti Rahman on the way to a 227-212 victory.

Rahman, a 26-year-old right-hander who was looking to become the first player from the talented Malaysian contingent to claim a PWBA Tour title this season, struck on three of her last four shots to keep the pressure on Johnson, but the hall of famer started her final frame with a strike to lock up the match.

“Just getting to the show this week meant a lot because it was so tough, and the shot took me out of my comfort zone,” Johnson said. “Once I got comfortable, it was about making the shots, staying down and not over-throwing it. Some shots weren’t pretty, but they fell, and that’s all that matters.”

After finishing 13th in the season-opening QubicaAMF PWBA Sonoma County Open, Johnson went on to qualify for the championship round in six of the next seven events, including five in a row, which is one shy of the PWBA Tour record.

Johnson’s run includes a win at the 2017 PWBA Storm Sacramento Open and a runner-up finish at the 2017 USBC Queens. Two of her championship-round appearances will come in the three TV shows being taped for delayed broadcast Sunday at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley.

The trio of tapings will include the finals of the PWBA Wichita Open, Pepsi PWBA Lincoln Open and PWBA Greater Detroit Open, scheduled to air on July 4, 11 and 18, respectively.

Johnson qualified for the finals of the Wichita Open and Lincoln Open, where she’ll meet Kulick in the opening match. Rahman also qualified for the Wichita Open as the second seed.

All 67 competitors at the 2017 Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship this week bowled 18 games of qualifying over two days to determine the 18 bowlers who advanced to round-robin match play.

Total pinfall for 36 games, including 30 bonus pins for each win in match play, determined the four finalists for the live TV finals.

KULICK EARNS TOP SEED FOR TV AT 2017 GO BOWLING PWBA PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Since the return of the Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour in 2015, Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey, and Liz Johnson of Deerfield, Illinois, have combined for nearly 30 championship-round appearances, and they’re among the four finalists at this week’s 2017 Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship.

Kulick, a 40-year-old right-hander, posted an 11-7 match-play record at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley and catapulted to the top seed for Sunday’s live TV finals with an 8,064 total for 36 games, including 30 bonus pins for each win in match play.

Johnson earned the fourth seed for the show, which will air on CBS Sports Network at noon Eastern, and now has qualified for the finals in six of the season’s eight tournaments.

Joining Kulick and Johnson in the chase for the $20,000 top prize and second major title of the 2017 PWBA Tour season will be No. 2 seed Lindsay Boomershine of Perry, Utah (8,042), and No. 3 Siti Rahman of Malaysia (7,968).

Johnson finished with a 7,966 total, 20 pins ahead of rookie standout Brittany Smith of Johnston, Iowa.

Kulick has been known to enjoy and excel in the longer event formats, and this week’s oil pattern, which will be revealed on Sunday’s show, allowed her to play to her strength – moving left and throwing the ball to the right.

She also feels like she’s getting sharper, both physically and mentally, as the season goes on, especially after recently picking up her first victory since the 2015 relaunch of the PWBA Tour, despite a combined 10 championship-round appearances in 2015 and 2016.

“Finally getting a win really meant a lot and definitely was very emotional for me,” said Kulick, who won the 2017 PWBA Fountain Valley Open. “It’s nice to see the momentum continuing, and I’ll do everything I can to finish this off tomorrow. I saw two pictures all week, and I’m hoping things come into focus quickly for me in the six practice shots I get before my match on the show.”

In the three years The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley has played host to the PWBA, Johnson has been the player to beat.

The United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer won the USBC Queens there in 2015 and was the runner-up to Colombia’s Clara Guerrero at the 2016 Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship.

“I guess it’s a combination of things that have helped me be successful here,” said Johnson, the two-time reigning PWBA Player of the Year. “There’s a great atmosphere here in Green Bay, and there’s just something about the long format of the majors. It took a little more patience for me this week, but I got there. I know it will be tough to climb the ladder, but I’d be OK if tomorrow turned out to be a really long day of bowling.”

Following the live finals of the PWBA Players Championship, three additional shows will be taped for delayed broadcast on CBS Sports Network.

The finals of the PWBA Wichita Open, Pepsi PWBA Lincoln Open and PWBA Greater Detroit Open will be taped for broadcast on July 4, 11 and 18, respectively.

Johnson and Rahman both will appear on the Wichita Open show, while Johnson and Kulick will face off in the opening match of the Lincoln Open stepladder.

Boomershine, who had a runner-up finish on the PWBA Tour in 2016, has competed in just three events this season, following the birth of her son, Aiden, and a nagging knee injury.

After locking up the top seed Saturday at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley, Kulick immediately thought of her mother, who died in December, but hasn’t been far from her thoughts.

“I still miss my mom and wish I could call her to tell her about the things I’ve accomplished,” Kulick said. “I wear her wedding band on my finger, so I know she’s with me always, and I know she’d be proud. Things have been tough, but I have a great support system, and I’m happy with the direction things are going.”

All 67 competitors at the 2017 Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship this week bowled 18 games of qualifying over two days to determine the 18 bowlers who advanced to round-robin match play.

BOOMERSHINE MAINTAINS LEAD AT 2017 GO BOWLING PWBA PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Lindsay Boomershine of Perry, Utah, won three of her six matches Friday night to maintain her lead at the 2017 Go Bowling Professional Women’s Bowling Association Players Championship.

The 31-year-old right-hander paced the 67-player field through 18 games of qualifying and used the cushion she’d built to hold off a strong Malaysian contingent that has four bowlers in the top 10 after the first round of match play at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley.

Boomershine was passed by Malaysia’s Syaidatul Hamidi after the fifth game of match play but regained the top spot with a final-game win over Colombia’s Maria Jose Rodriguez.

Boomershine finished the day with a 5,319 total for 24 games, including 30 bonus pins for each match-play victory. Hamidi turned in a 5-1 record in the opening round and now is in second place with a 5,299 total.

United States Bowling Congress Hall of Famer Liz Johnson of Deerfield, Illinois, is third with 5,240 and followed by Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey (5,204), and Malaysia’s Siti Rahman (5,188).

The 18 remaining competitors will return to the lanes Saturday morning for 12 additional games of match play, beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern.

After 36 games, total pinfall, including bonus pins, will determine the four players who will advance to Sunday’s live stepladder finals on CBS Sports Network to battle for the $20,000 top prize. The show will begin at noon EDT.

“I knew the lanes would play a little differently with less people bowling, so my goal was to just shoot 200 each game, figuring that with as tough as the lanes are, my chances would be 50-50, and, at worst, I’d pick up a few pins,” said Boomershine, who had a runner-up finish on the PWBA Tour in 2016. “Honestly, I’m not even thinking about leading. I’m not trying to make things happen. I just want to keep focusing on my process and the things I can control.”

After time off following the birth of her son, Aiden, and additional time to recover from a knee injury, one of the biggest challenges Boomershine is encountering this week is the long format, which has her bowling more games than she has in while.

At the same time, she is embracing the opportunity to be back on the lanes and enjoying being the player to beat for the second time in her three events this season. Boomershine also was the qualifying leader at the 2017 USBC Queens in May.

“I’m definitely a little tired and sore, but that’s also what this is all about,” Boomershine said. “It’s about digging deep. It’s about staying aggressive and focused. I just hope to keep performing well, and my main goal is to stay in the top four and make the TV show. I’ve been taking it one day at a time, and tomorrow is a new day with 12 more games and 12 more matches to win.”

All 67 competitors at the 2017 Go Bowling PWBA Players Championship this week bowled 18 games of qualifying over two days to determine the 18 bowlers who advanced to round-robin match play.

While Boomershine led the field through qualifying with a 220.39 average, it took a 200.2 clip to make the cut.

Defending champion Clara Guerrero of Colombia failed to make it to match play, finishing two pins short with a 3,602 total for her 18 games of qualifying.

Following the live finals of the PWBA Players Championship, three additional shows will be taped Sunday in Green Bay for delayed broadcast on CBS Sports Network.

The finals of the PWBA Wichita Open, Pepsi PWBA Lincoln Open and PWBA Greater Detroit Open will be taped for broadcast on July 4, 11 and 18, respectively.

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Taking time off from something you love never is easy, but not rushing back to competition has been the right decision for Lindsay Boomershine of Perry, Utah, who leads after the opening day of qualifying at the 2017 Go Bowling Professional Women’s Bowling Association Players Championship.

The 31-year-old right-hander started and finished Thursday’s 12 games at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley with bookend games in the 240s, averaging more than 219 overall to lead the 67-player field with a 2,633 total.

“It has been hard not being out here every week this season, but I know it’s important to listen to your body and not rush the progress,” said Boomershine, who had her first child with husband, Hank, in February and has been plagued by a knee injury in the months since. “The time off has helped me rest and get my mind right, get in some workouts and work on eating better to lose some weight. I’ve been working hard, and things are going great.”

Boomershine is bowling in her third event of the 2017 PWBA Tour season and tossed three strikes in her final frame Thursday to edge recent PWBA Fountain Valley Open champion, Kelly Kulick of Union, New Jersey, by three pins (2,630). Boomershine shined at the 2017 United States Bowling Congress Queens, the first major of the season, where she was the top qualifier for match play.

Kulick also has been on the mend this year, but from an emotional and mental perspective after her mother’s death in December, along with real-life priorities, and she quickly has been gaining momentum heading into the second half of the PWBA Tour season.

She followed up her win at the Fountain Valley Open by qualifying for the finals of the Pepsi PWBA Lincoln Open, which will be taped for delayed broadcast Sunday in Green Bay.

“After making the Lincoln show, I’m really starting to feel sharper, and my outlook and mentality are much brighter, too,” Kulick said. “The pattern this week is allowing me to play to my strength, playing in and faster, and I feel like my ball does the right thing in this building, so I feel good about things right now.”

Kulick was followed Thursday by Amanda Greene of Romney, West Virginia (2,557), and a quartet of players from Malaysia, Siti Rahman (2,545), Syaidatul Hamidi (2,532), Esther Cheah (2,522) and Shalin Zulkifli (2,499).

The final two players from the Malaysian contingent this week also are in the top 20 after 12 games.

Sin Li Jane, who is the top seed for the finals of the PWBA Wichita Open and PWBA Lincoln Open, is ninth at the PWBA Players Championship with a 2,488 total, and Natasha Roslan is just outside the cut number in 20th place with a 2,405 total.

With six games of qualifying to go, the final spot in match play (top 18) belongs to 2012 USBC Queens champion Diandra Asbaty of Chicago with a 2,432 total.

Competition at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley continues Friday at noon Eastern. The winner this week will claim the second major title of the season, along with a $20,000 top prize.

All 67 competitors at the 2017 PWBA Players Championship will bowl 18 games of qualifying over two days to determine the 18 bowlers who will advance to round-robin match play, which will get underway Friday evening and conclude Saturday afternoon.

After 36 games, total pinfall, including bonus pins from match play, will decide the four players who will compete in Sunday’s live stepladder finals, scheduled for noon Eastern on CBS Sports Network.

Defending champion Clara Guerrero of Colombia is 10th after the opening day of competition with a 2,470 total.

Three additional shows will be taped Sunday in Green Bay for delayed broadcast on CBS Sports Network.

The finals of the PWBA Wichita Open, Pepsi PWBA Lincoln Open and PWBA Greater Detroit Open will be taped for broadcast on July 4, 11 and 18, respectively.
