QubicaAMF PBA Regional Update: Jakob Butturff wins again in Arizona
Fresh off winning his first PBA Tour title in the PBA Xtra Frame Lubbock Sports Open, Jakob Butturff (left) of Chandler, Ariz., posted an 8-4 match play record and a 20-game total of 5,042 pins Sunday to win his fourth QubicaAMF PBA Regional title in the FlipSide Awesome Bowling Classic at FlipSide Lanes in Gilbert, Ariz.
Butturff, who earned $2,500, defeated Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix by 119 pins for the title. Haugen, who finished second to PJ Haggerty in the PBA Battle of Black Oak Casino West Open a week earlier, had a 9-3 match play record and 4,923 pins for 20 games including match play bonus pins.
Dick Allen (right) of Columbia, S.C., and Carl Breaman of Greer, S.C., defeated the team of John Furey of Freehold, N.J., and Sam Maccarone of Blackwood, N.J., 427-403, to repeat their 2013 win in the QubicaAMF PBA South Region’s AMF Fredericksburg Over/Under Doubles presented by Radical at AMF Fredericksburg (Va.) Lanes Sunday.
The title was Breaman’s second as a PBA member and Allen’s 18th in PBA Regional competition. Each earned $2,000. Breaman had previously won a PBA South Region tournament in 1999, but didn’t earn a title because he was a non-member at the time.

Mookie Betts‘ bowling fan club can’t do anything except grow after his selection to the starting outfield for the American League in next week’s All-Star Games in San Diego.
Betts, the Boston Red Sox right fielder who made his debut in PBA competition during the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VII in Reno last December, has been the American League’s best leadoff hitter throughout the first half of the major league baseball season, hitting .298 with 18 home runs and 57 RBIs, which is tied for fifth best in the American League. And as an fyi, Betts is planning to return to the PBA WSOB VIII in Reno this winter.
