    2015 PBA Tour #23

    2015PBAStuartWilliams.jpgLeading since the second round, Stuart Williams (pictured left) of England topped 24 players in Saturday's Rolltech PBA World Championship cashers' round who advanced to the first eight-game match play round later this afternoon at the National Bowling Stadium.

    After 36 games, which were part of the qualifying rounds of the PBA animal pattern tournaments in the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VII presented by Silver Legacy, and the six games in the cashers' round on the World Championship lane condition, Williams has compiled a 9,719 pinfall total and is maintaining a 231.4 for 42 games bowled on five different conditions (Cheetah, Viper, Chameleon, Scorpion and World Championship).

    Stuart, who is trying for his second PBA Tour title and first major, had games of 232, 194, 199, 214, 236 and 237 in the cashers' round. His first and only PBA title came in the Viper Championship conducted during the 2011 World Series of Bowling.

Two-time 2015 titlist Ryan Ciminelli (right) of Cheektowaga, N.Y., is in third with 9,588 pins followed by three-time titlist Scott Norton of Mission Viejo, Calif., 9,505, and Gary Faulkner of Memphis, Tenn., with 9,488.

    Seven countries will be represented in the World Championship match play which include England, Sweden, Canada, Denmark, Colombia, Australia and the U.S.

Past champions Hall of Famers Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J. (Nov. 2012) and three-time winner Walter Ray Williams Jr. (right) of Oxford, Fla., just missed the cut finishing 25th and 26, respectively.

    After today's first match play round, two more eight-game rounds will be conducted Sunday at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT which will determine the top five players for the live World Championship finals to be telecast Thursday on ESPN at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT).

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