Ads


Anthony Simonsen of the United States, England’s Stuart Williams and EJ Tackett, USA, finished the 2018 World Bowling Tour season atop the men’s leaderboard to claim the berths in the 2019 World Bowling Tour Men’s Finals that will be contested on Sunday, Jan. 6, at the International Research and Training Center in Arlington, Texas, for broadcast on FS1 on March 10.

The last event of the WBT season, the all-events standings in the 2018 World Men Championships (tier 2 event) in Hong Kong, China, affected only the race for third place since Anderson and Williams had locked up first and second place already after the previous event (U.S Open).

Simonsen (featured photo and right) led the two-year point ranking with 2118 points and also the ranking for 2018 with 2100 points. Williams was second in both rankings with 1941 and 1844, respectively. Neither Simonsen nor Williams competed at the World Championships.

Tackett (left) and his fellow Team USA members Andrew Anderson and Kyle Troup battled it out for the third spot in the 2018 ranking which determined the finalist for the 2019 World Bowling Tour Men’s Finals.

Tackett won the gold medal all-events gold medal to claim the third spot in both rankings with 1723 and 1692. Anderson (right), who won the silver medal, finished fourth with 1702 and 1688, just four pins behind Tackett.

Troup (left) was fourth in all-events to end the season in fifth place with 1600 and 1524. Jason Belmonte of Australia, who did not compete in Hong Kong, slipped from third to sixth place in the two-year ranking with 1341 and seventh in the 2018 ranking with 1156. Yannaphon Larp-apharat, who bowled for Thailand in the men’s worlds, overtook Belmonte to finish sixth with 1192.

The WBT Women’s Finals, presented by the PBA, concluded already with the U.S. Open. The 2019 World Bowling Tour Women’s Finals will feature Danielle McEwan, Liz Johnson, both USA, and Daria Pajak of Poland.

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 featured 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.
