2018 World Bowling Tour Men’s Point Ranking after Tulsa and U.S. Opens

Ads


Anthony Simonsen, United States, continued to lead the men’s World Bowling Tour rankings after the conclusion of the FloBowling PBA Tulsa Open and U.S. Open in October.

After finishing 12th in Tulsa, a WBT tier 2 event, and 8th at the U.S. Open (tier 1), Simonsen (right and featured photo) leads the two-year rolling point list (includes all events from 2018 and 2017 and two events from 2016) with 2183 points, and also the 2018 rankings with 1716 points.

The 2018 rankings determine the top 3 players who qualify for the season-ending World Bowling Tour Finals, which will be contested at the International Training and Research Center in Arlington, Texas, Sunday, January 6, 2019 for airing on FS1 on Sunday, March 10, at 10 p.m. EST.

Stuart Williams (left) of England, who won the Tulsa Open and finished 14th in the U.S. Open, maintained second place on both lists with 1943 and 1844, respectively.

Four-time PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte (right) of Australia overtook Kyle Troup, USA, to move into third place on the two-year-list with 1441. Andrew Anderson (1368) and EJ Tackett (1292), both USA, pushed back Troup (1284) to fifth place in the 2018 rankings.

2018 U.S. Open winner Dom Barrett (left) of England sits in 9th and 11th place with 1096 and 928, resp.

The World Bowling Tour 2018 concludes with 2018 CGSE • Million Tinkle World Men Championships (all-events standings to count for the rankings), a WBT Tier 2, event for men only, which will be held at the SCAA Bowling Center in Hong Kong, China, Nov. 23 to Dec. 5.

The World Bowling Tour is sanctioned by World Bowling, the governing body for the sport of bowling. The tour is the premier international bowling series that is hosted in numerous, unique cities around the globe.

The 2018 WBT schedule features 13 stops, one each in Germany, South Korea, Sweden, Thailand and Hong Kong and eight stops on U.S. soil.

Due to an agreement between World Bowling and the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA), World Bowling Tour tournaments award a PBA Tour title if the winner is a PBA member (who doesn’t accept handicap pins). When an event is U.S. based and not a PBA event, no PBA title can be granted.

In 2018, World Bowling has introduced a three-tier system. Base points range from 100 points for first place to 24 points for 50th place. In Tier 1 events (must have more than $200,000USD prize money), athletes receive six times the number of WBT Ranking base point, in Tier 2 events (between $100,000 and $200,000) four times and in Tier 3 events (between $50,000 and $100,000) two times.

Men and women compete for points to earn places on the World Bowling Tour rankings. The points system still is based on a continuous two-year cycle, where points include every event from the previous two year format.

The top three men and top three women in the annual points list qualify for the season-ending World Bowling Tour Finals, presented by PBA. The finals for the 2018 WBT season will be contested at the International Training and Research Center in Arlington, Texas, Sunday, January 6, 2019 for airing on FS1 on Sunday, March 10, at 10 p.m. EST.

World Bowling provides governance to international bowling and is made up of 134 bowling international federations. For more information on the World Bowling Tour, click here.
