Jeff Piroozshad leads PBA XF Reality Check Classic after Qualifying

Ads


Part-time Professional Bowlers Association competitor Jeff Piroozshad of Coral Springs, Fla., averaged 238.8 for eight games Saturday to lead the 62 top qualifiers who advanced to Sunday’s final rounds of the PBA Xtra Frame Reality Check Classic at Sawgrass Lanes. AJ Johnson (pictured) of Oswego, Ill., was in second place, three pins behind.

The tournament, which will award a PBA Tour title along with a $10,000 first prize, is the first in a series of eight PBA Xtra Frame Tour events that will award $50,000 in Storm Cup bonus prize money at the end of the season. All Storm Cup events will be live streamed on PBA’s online bowling channel, Xtra Frame, which is available by subscription. For details, click here.

Piroozshad, who has been a PBA member on-and-off for 17 years, rolled games of 253, 231, 268, 244, 223, 191, 224 and 275 for a 1,911 pinfall total and overtook Johnson with his big closing game. Piroozshad, 42, has won one regional title in 43 PBA Regional and 10 PBA Tour tournament appearances.

Johnson, a 24-year-old former McKendree University collegiate star, rolled games of 206, 257, 278, 260, 257, 211, 201 and 238 to finish qualifying with 1,908 total pins. Johnson, a third-year PBA member, has two second place finishes during his brief career, but has yet to win his first PBA Tour title.

The Reality Check Classic was originally scheduled for last October, but was postponed due to the arrival of Hurricane Matthew. In its new place on the PBA schedule, the tournament drew a field of 186 PBA members and top amateur bowlers.

The top one-third of the field or 62 players advanced to Sunday’s four-game cashers’ round at 8:30 a.m. Tied at 1,659, Kyle Troup of Taylorsville, N.C. defeated Bob Learn Jr. of Erie, Pa., 222-200, in a one-game roll-off to take the 62nd place and last place to advance.

The top 16 after 12 games advance to the three-game Round of 16 at 11:30 a.m.; the top 8 after 15 games advance to the two-game Round of 8 at 1:30 p.m., and the top four after 17 total games advance to the stepladder finals at 3 p.m. All times are Eastern.
