    2015PBANormDuke.jpgAnthony Simonsen (pictured left) of Princeton, Texas, has a chance to tie Norm Duke's (right) record as the youngest bowler in history to win a Professional Bowlers Association Tour title, after leading qualifying in the PBA Scorpion Championship presented by Reno-Tahoe USA Friday at the National Bowling Stadium, and advancing into the cashers' round of the Rolltech PBA World Championship.

    Simonsen, a two-handed player, averaged 241.2 for his nine games on the PBA's Scorpion lane condition Friday behind games of 216, 279, 226, 233, 217, 233, 290, 240 and 237. His 2,171 total led the top 24 qualifiers into the five-game Scorpion Championship match play elimination rounds on Tuesday.

    In the interim, Simonsen has a chance to win his first PBA Tour title if he can reach stepladder finals of the Rolltech PBA World Championship which will be televised live on ESPN next Thursday.

    2015PBANobuhitoFujii.jpgAs the 25th qualifier heading into the World Championship cashers' and match play rounds Saturday and Sunday, he has work to do to qualify among the top five TV finalists, but a title on Thursday would match Duke's youngest titlist record at age 18 years, 345 days, which Duke set when he won the 1983 Cleveland Open.

    "That's a little extra flame for my fire," Simonsen said Friday after overtaking Japan's Nobuhito Fujii (right) for the Scorpion lead by 49 pins.

    "The first couple of days at the World Series weren't very good physically, and yesterday I missed the match play cut (in the Chameleon Championship) by a pin," Simonsen said. "That was disappointing and gave me a little more fuel today. I had a number in mind I wanted to post today to get me into the World Championship field, and I exceeded that.

    2015PBAConnorPickford.jpg"Whether or not I can get the youngest title might bother me for a while, but I'm here to bowl for a title, period. It doesn't matter whether I'm 60 or whatever."

    If Simonsen can't tie Duke's record on Thursday, he has a chance to become the second-oldest titlist if he can win the Scorpion Championship and, if that doesn't happen, Simonsen and partner Connor Pickford (left) of Charlotte, N.C., are top qualifiers for the Mark Roth/Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship that will be decided next Saturday.

    2015PBAStuartWilliams.jpgAmong the 60 players standing in Simonsen's way in the World Championship field is England's Stuart Williams (right), who won his first and only PBA Tour title in the 2011 Viper Championship in Las Vegas.

    Williams joined an elite group of players who have qualified among the top 24 match play finalists in all four animal pattern events in the seven-year history of the WSOB, and by doing so, he rolled into the 36-game Rolltech PBA World Championship qualifying lead.

    Williams qualified 14th in Friday's Scorpion round, the final "animal pattern" qualifying leg leading into the PBA World Championship, for an overall total of 8,407 pins, a 233.5 average for 36 games in the four qualifying legs. WSOB VII is easily his best World Series performance since being one of the first international players to bowl in the inaugural WSOB in Detroit in 2009.

    "I'm ecstatic," the 34-year-old Williams said. "(The Scorpion) was definitely my weakest pattern so to be 221 pins over (a 200 average) today was great.

    2015PBAEJTackett.jpg2015PBAScottNorton.jpg"It's the most consistent World Series I've ever had. I tend to make my preparations for the year around the World Series, and I've previously had good results for two or three days, but never all four," he added. "The key all week has been patience. I look at it like it's a 36-game tournament, not four nine-game tournaments, so the key is to avoid the really big low games."

    Trailing Williams in World Championship qualifying was 2013 PBA Rookie of the Year EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., with 8,259 pins. Two-time 2015 titlist Ryan Ciminelli of Cheektowaga, N.Y., qualified third with 8,172 pins followed by Patrick Girard of Canada with 8,134 pins and Scott Norton (right) of Mission Viejo, Calif., with an 8,111 total.

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts, completing his debut in professional bowling competition, had his most trying round on Friday's Scorpion lane condition, averaging 181 for a nine-game total of 1,629 pins. For his 36 games on the four animal pattern lane conditions, the 23-year-old Betts averaged 190.

    "It was fun, but after going through it, I have a whole new respect for what players go through to make it to the television finals," Betts said.

    "For me, the toughest part of it was the mental side. You have to know what kind of adjustments to make within the first couple of frames. I didn't know what to do, and it showed. But hopefully I'll have a chance to come back next year, and if I do, I'll practice more and figure it out."

    2015PBAWSOBVIILogo_small.jpgSaturday's GEICO WSOB VII competition features the top 61 World Championship qualifiers bowling a six-game cashers' round. Based on 42-game totals, the top 24 players will bowl World Championship head-to-head match play rounds Saturday at 8 p.m. ET and Sunday at 1 and 8 p.m. ET.

    After 66 games of qualifying and match play, the top five will compete in the live ESPN stepladder finals on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT for the $60,000 first prize and the PBA's final major championship title of 2015.

    All qualifying and match play rounds of the WSOB are being covered live, exclusively by PBA's online video streaming service, Xtra Frame.
