    Shafer, who finished second in a Major for the third time in his career, applied pressure late by striking in frames 7-9, but it wasn't enough.

Fagan converted the 6-7-10 split to start the 10th then followed with an eight count. Smith, a six-time Tour title winner, needed to strike to start his 10th, but instead left the 3-6-10.

    Shafer earned $50,000 for his second place finish while Fagan earned $25,000 for third. Smith took home $15,000 for fourth.

    2005EBT15RyanShafer.jpg Ryan Shafer went 6-2 in match play to finish Friday night with a 7,824 35-game pinfall to take the lead after the first of three round robin match play rounds in the 63rd U.S. Open at Brunswick Zone Carolier.

The Elmira, N.Y., native was fifth heading into match play Friday night, but he won his first four matches, averaging 240.50.

    "I look forward to this event every year because I think this is our most important tournament of the season," said Shafer, who finished sixth in the 2003 U.S. Open. "It's a true test. I work so hard coming into this event, and if I don't bowl well I'm really disappointed. I grind it out more this week than I do the other weeks."

    Sean_Rash_4314.jpg Shafer overtook Tour rookie Sean Rash (pictured) in the last game, despite falling to Steve Jaros, 213-188. Rash led the field through the first six games going 6-0, but he lost to Shafer, 226-200, in game seven, then fell to Mike Machuga, 203-154, in game eight.

    Tommy Jones continues to lead in 63rd U.S. Open

    2004PBA18TommyJones.jpg Tommy Jones continued his march toward his first career appearance in a Denny's PBA Tour Major championship round, as he padded his lead Friday in the 63rd U.S. Open at Brunswick Zone Carolier.

    Jones led the field after the first 18 games of qualifying, then averaged 221.56 in Friday's final nine games of qualifying to keep the lead heading into tonight's round robin match play. "It's irrelevant," Jones said of leading.

    "We still have 24 games of match play left plus bonus pins so anyone still bowling can get there. But it's good to have a cushion." Jones has a Tour-high three titles this season after leading with four last season, yet does not own a Major title. He finished with a 5,949 27-game pinfall.

    Sean Rash is second with 5,908. The 23-year-old won last week's 2006 West Virginia Championship to become the first non-exempt bowler to win a Tour title. His opponent in the title match, Mike DeVaney, who shot one of the day's two 300-games, is third with 5,875.

    WRW_3697.jpg PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. (left), who is looking to win his 41st career title and tie Earl Anthony for most career Tour titles, is tied for 9th with 5,743. Williams is looking to make his fifth straight U.S. Open championship round.

    Defending champion Chris Barnes fired a 215 in his final game Friday to jump from 26th to 21st. Michael Fagan earned the 24th and final spot in match play with 5,588.

    The remaining 24 bowlers from the original 461-bowler field will bowl eight games of round robin match play tonight at 5 p.m. EST. Total pinfall carries over from all 27 games of qualifying. Bowlers will earn 30 bonus pins for each win in match play, and 15 pins for each tie.

    The top four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a three-season exemption through the 2008-09 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, Feb. 19, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 12:30 p.m. EST.

    Tommy Jones leads top-quarter of U.S. Open field into Round Four

    2004JPNCupTommyJones3.jpg Tommy Jones owns seven career Denny's PBA Tour titles, but he's still looking for his first Major victory. He's one step closer to winning his first Major, as he led qualifying in the 63rd U.S. Open with a 3,955 18-game pinfall after averaging 217.33 in his final six-game set Thursday at Brunswick Zone Carolier.

    Jones, 27-years-old from Simpsonville, S.C., has won a Tour-best three titles this season and could solidify his position in the 2006 PBA Player of the Year race with a victory this week.

    "There's no pressure," Jones said about the possibility of winning a Major. "You definitely want to win, but there's no pressure. This is the one you want to win if you're going to win a Major though. The format is the longest and it's the toughest conditions."

    Jason Hurd.jpg Ritchie Wolfe.jpg Two-time title winner Jason Hurd (left) was second with 3,949 while non-exempt PBA member Ritchie Wolfe (right) was third with 3,935. Norm Duke looking for his 23rd career title was fourth with 3,933 and Mike Machuga was fifth with 3,926.
     

    Paul_Moor_4133.jpg WRW_4792.jpg PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. (left) was 8th with 3,823 and is looking to make his fifth straight U.S. Open final round. Defending champion Chris Barnes was 30th with 3,717. Two-time European ranking champion Paul Moor (right) from England made the cut in 39th place with 3,677.

    Carolyn_Dorin-Ballard_2748.jpg Cathy_Dorin_2486.jpg Among the match play finalists are three former PWBA members. Michelle Feldman finished in 94th place with 3,581, while Cathy Dorin-Lizzi (left) was tied for 108th with 3,552, and her sister Carolyn Dorin-Ballard (right) 111th with 3,549. Their husbands, Jeff Lizzi (3,764, tied for 17th) and Del Ballard Jr. (105th, 3,557) also advanced.

    Lonnie Waliczek4.jpg Rick Steelsmith.jpg Rick Steelsmith (left) and Lonnie Waliczek (right), Wichita, Kan., natives who are rooming together this week, tied for 115th with 3,536. The two tied a one-game roll-off, 203-203, and Waliczek won a sudden-death roll-off, 20-19, to advance to the next round.

    The top-quarter of the field (115 bowlers) will bowl nine additional qualifying games Friday, after which the top 24 will advance to round robin match play. The final four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a three-year exemption through the 2008-09 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, Feb. 19, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 12:30 p.m. EST.

    300 games - Jason Sterner.


    Jason Hurd overtakes the lead in 63rd U.S. Open

    2004PBA05HurdJason.jpg Jason Hurd overtakes the lead in 63rd U.S. Open Jason Hurd finished with a 2,660 12-game pinfall Wednesday to leap 16 spots and to lead the 461-bowler field after two days of qualifying in the 63rd U.S. Open at Brunswick Zone Carolier, the second of four Majors on the Denny's PBA Tour.

    Hurd is in need of a good showing this week. The Titusville, Fla., native enjoyed a career-season in 2004-05, winning his first career singles title and finishing 12th in the 2004-05 PBA World Point Rankings.

    This season, however, Hurd is just 44th in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings with six events remaining to earn points toward an exemption for the 2006-07 Tour season. The cut-line for an exemption is currently 37th.

    "It's getting down to crunch time," said Hurd, who finished 17th in last season's U.S. Open. "There are still a lot of games. Every pin counts in this tournament. I need to come in tomorrow like it's the first block and try to get every pin I can get."

    2004JPNCupTommyJones2.jpg Steve Rogers is second with 2,659, while Norm Duke, owner of 22 career Tour titles, is third with 2,652. Tommy Jones, who already has three titles to his credit this season, is fourth with 2,651, while Mike Machuga rounds out the top five with 2,650.

    Sean_Rash_4314.jpg PBA's latest shooting star, Sean Rash (right), who won last week's 2006 West Virginia Championship, moved into sixth with 2,633. First round leader Richard Wolfe slipped to eighth place with 2,616.

    The entire 461-bowler field will bowl a final six-game qualifying session Thursday, after which the top-quarter of the field (115 players) will return Friday morning for nine more games of qualifying. The top 24 after 27 total games will advance to round robin match play, after which the top four will move on to Sunday's four-bowler stepladder finals.

    The final four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a three-season exemption through the 2008-09 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, Feb. 19, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 12:30 p.m. EST.

    300 Games - None


    Ritchie Wolfe gets off to a good start in 63rd U.S. Open

    Ritchie Wolfe.jpg Ritchie Wolfe, looking for his first career Denny's PBA Tour title, leads the 460-bowler field with a 1,411 six-game pinfall after the first Round of the 63rd U.S. Open Tuesday at Brunswick Zone Carolier.

    Wolfe, who shot games of 253 and 280 to start his day, is no stranger to strong performances in the Tour's Major events. The 38-year-old from Vienna, Va., finished tied for 12th in the 2004 World Championship and 23rd in the 62nd U.S. Open.

    Wolfe was exempt for the 2004-05 Tour season, but finished 43rd in the 2004-05 PBA World Point Rankings and missed an exemption for this season by four places. Brian Valenta is second with 1,390. Valenta, who uses a two-handed delivery, finished 20th in last season's 62nd U.S. Open.

    "This format and this pattern really fit my game well," Valenta said. "I just had a good line today. I threw the ball well and just stuck around and let it come to me."
