Williams finally ties Earl Anthony for the all-time PBA Tour titles record

    PBA National Tour #19

    Woodland Bowl in Indianapolis, IN (March 20-26, 2006)

    2005PBA19WRW.jpg Walter Ray Williams Jr. couldn't have picked a better time to finally tie Earl Anthony's all-time Denny's Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour titles record.

    Williams earned his 41st career Tour title to tie Earl Anthony for the all-time lead, defeating Pete Weber, 236-213, in the 2006 Denny's World Championship at Woodland Bowl. Williams' seventh Major title also gives him $100,000 and a four-season Tour exemption.

    "To win a title is great, to win a Major is even better and to win 41 is unbelievable," said Williams. "I'm just ecstatic. When I first came on Tour I never thought this would happen. It's been a great career but I'm not done yet. I have at least four more years to break the record."

    2003PBA15PeteWeber.jpg Williams, who is now 4-0 in title matches against fellow PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber, finally won in his 7th attempt at tying Anthony's record. After winning the 2004 Uniroyal Tire Classic in Nov. 2004, Williams went 1-6 in his next seven matches on television.

    This Sunday, however, Williams came out on a mission. Weber struggled early in the title match, converting three single-pin spares and a 4-7-9 split in the first four frames. Williams, meanwhile, struck four consecutive times after opening the match with a spare. Weber then left a 7-10 split in the sixth frame to give Williams a big cushion. The Ocala, Fla. native struck in the 7th and 8th, then converted a spare in the 9th to clinch the win.

    Ryan Shafer.jpg Williams advanced to the title match with a 224-201 win over Ryan Shafer. Shafer left the 2-10 split twice and opened both times, the second coming in the 7th frame. Williams took advantage with strikes in frames 7-9, with the strike in the 9th clinching the win.

    Brad Angelo.jpg Weber advanced to the title match with a 227-214 win over Brad Angelo. The two were even through six frames, but Angelo was unable to strike in frames 7-9, while Weber struck in the 8th and spared in the 9th to take a two-pin lead. Weber then needed to double and knock down nine in the 10th frame to win. He did exactly that to clinch a berth in the title match.

    Weber, who was looking to win his record-tying 8th career Major, took home $50,000 for second. Shafer and Angelo earned $20,000 apiece for their third and fourth place finishes, respectively.

    The Denny's PBA Tour heads to Grand Rapids, Mich., for the final standard event on the schedule, the 2006 Great Lakes Classic March 29-April 2 at Spectrum Lanes. The live ESPN finals take place Sunday, April 2 at 1 p.m. EST, with the winner taking home the $40,000 top prize and an exemption for the 2006-07 season.

    Williams, Weber, Shafer, Angelo to bowl for the title in PBA Denny's World Championship

    WRW_3719.jpg Walter Ray Williams Jr. will make his seventh attempt at tying the all-time Denny's Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour career titles record Sunday, but this time there will be $100,000 and a four-season exemption on the line as well.

    Williams will look to win his 41st career title and seventh Major title as he defeated Rick Steelsmith, four-games-to-one, Friday in the Round of 8 in the 2006 Denny's World Championship at Woodland Bowl.

    Williams, Ocala, Fla., has won two World Championship titles among his six Majors, but none would be as sweet as a Major that would tie Earl Anthony's all-time record. The PBA Hall of Famer has failed in six attempts at tying the record, going 1-6 in those championship round matches.

    "Last week I didn't do a very good job of playing the lanes properly and that cost me. The week before I threw a couple bad shots in the second match and that cost me," said Williams, who is making his third consecutive TV appearance. "Hopefully this time I can go out there and execute, and hope the pins fall for me."

    Ryan_Shafer_3627.jpg Williams will face Ryan Shafer, who will be making his second appearance in a Major championship final this season. Shafer, Elmira, N.Y., who finished second in this season's 63rd U.S. Open, defeated Jeff Carter, Springfield, Ill.,. 4-2.

    Pete_Weber_3711.jpg Another PBA Hall of Famer and two-time World Champion, Pete Weber, St. Ann, Mo., advanced to the finals with a 4-1 win over Mike Scroggins, Amarillo, Texas. Weber, who won his 32nd career title earlier this season, will also be chasing a record held by Anthony. A win would tie the legend's all-time record of eight Denny's PBAB Tour Major titles.

    Brad_Angelo_4806.jpg Weber will face Brad Angelo, Lockport, N.Y., who defeated Mike Machuga, Erie, Pa., 4-1. Angelo will look to become the 18th bowler in Tour history to win a Major as his first career Tour title.

    Weber is the only player from the top four qualifyers, who earned a bye into the Round of Super 16, bypassing the rounds of 32 and 16, who advanced to the TV finals

    None of the top four in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings (Norm Duke, Tommy Jones, Mike Scroggins and Wes Malott), who were seeded into the Round of Super 16 made the arena finals in Hinkle Fieldhouse. Scroggins was the sole player of the first round. Duke lost to Rick Steelsmith, 4-3, after a 3-0 lead. Jonse fell to Angelo, 4-3 and Malott was sidelined by Carter, 4-1.

    The final four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a four-season exemption through the 2009-10 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, March 26, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 2 p.m. EST.

    McCune becomes top non-exempt bowler with win in Round of 32

    Eugene_McCune_1774.jpg Eugene McCune may have bowled himself back onto the Denny's Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour Thursday. McCune took over the lead in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings among non-exempt bowlers, defeating Tom Daugherty, four-games-to-none, Thursday in the Round of 32 in the 2006 Denny's World Championship at Woodland Bowl.

    The top non-exempt bowler in the point rankings earns an exemption for the 2006-07 season. McCune came into the week trailing Eric Forkel by nearly 4,000 points. This week's event, the third of four Majors on the Denny's PBA Tour, awards more points than standard events. After Forkel missed the first cut in qualifying, McCune needed to finish at least 28th to pass him.

    McCune's win in the Round of 32 guarantees him a spot in the top 24. With one event remaining which counts toward the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings, McCune can put some distance between himself and Forkel.

    "It's not something I can control. I just have to go out there and make shots," said McCune, who was exempt in 2004-05 but finished 47th in the point rankings and was unable to regain his exemption through the 2005 Denny's PBA Tour Trials. "I made enough good shots to get through qualifying, and I made a lot of good shots tonight."

    Walter Ray Williams WRW.jpg Paker Bohn.jpg McCune will face Jeff Lizzi in the Round of 16. Lizzi, also a non-exempt bowler, defeated Tommy Delutz Jr., 4-1. Walter Ray Williams Jr. (right) defeated Tom Baker, 4-1, in a battle of PBA Hall of Famers. Williams' reward will be a match-up with another PBA Hall of Famer, Parker Bohn III (left) in Friday's Round of 16. Bohn defeated Ray Edwards, 4-0.

    Another PBA Hall of Famer, Wayne Webb, advanced to the Round of 16 with a 4-2 win over Brian Himmler. Webb owns 20 Tour titles with his last coming in 1997.

    The winners of Friday's Round of 16 matches will join the top four from qualifying as well as the top four in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings (Norm Duke, Tommy Jones, Mike Scroggins and Wes Malott) in the Round of Super 16.

    The final four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a four-season exemption through the 2009-10 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, March 26, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 2 p.m. EST.

    Ronnie Russell leads PBA Denny's World Championship after prelims

    Ronnie Russell.jpg Just three years ago, Ronnie Russell was bowling for his local college team. Now the 26-year-old is leading a Major tournament on the Denny's Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour.

    Russell, a 26-year-old from Indianapolis, averaged 226.78 in his nine games Thursday to finish qualifying as the top seed in the 2006 Denny's World Championship at Woodland Bowl. The top four bowlers after the 27 games of qualifying earned a bye into Friday's Round of Super 16, bypassing the rounds of 32 and 16.

    Russell, who became a PBA member in 2003 after he was a First Team All-American at Vincennes University in Indiana, came into this week with just 30 Tour events under his belt. He finished the three days of qualifying with a 6,071 27-game pinfall.

    "I felt like Walter Ray (Williams Jr.) because every time I picked up a 2- or 4-pin everyone was clapping," said Russell, whose highest career finish in a Tour event is sixth in the 2003 Toledo Open. "There's a lot of work to do. I have to keep going. I still have to win two matches against two great bowlers. If I make the show then I'll be happy, but there's too much work to do."

    Pete Weber.jpg Mike Machuga.jpg Also earning byes into the Round of Super 16 were Pete Weber (left), St. Ann, Mo., who was second with 6,037, Mike Machuga (right), Erie, Pa., who was third with 6,001 and Mike DeVaney, Temecula, Calif., who was fourth with 5,973.

    PBA Hall of Famer Tom Baker finished 36th with 5,635 and earned the final berth into the best-of-seven games match play Round of 32, beginning Thursday at 6 p.m. EST.

    Friday features the Round of 16, with the eight winners joining the top four from qualifying as well as the top four in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings (Norm Duke, Tommy Jones, Mike Scroggins and Wes Malott) in the Round of Super 16. Match play continues until four bowlers remain.

    The final four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a four-season exemption through the 2009-10 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, March 26, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 2 p.m. EST.

    Chris Johnson leads top 49 into Day Three Qualifying at PBA Denny's World Championship

    Chris Johnson.jpg 2004 Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Rookie of the Year Chris Johnson did a lot Wednesday to improve his chances of earning an exemption for the 2006-07 Denny's PBA Tour season.

    The 28-year-old averaged 228.22 over his nine games Wednesday to lead after the first two days of qualifying with a 4,030 18-game pinfall in the 2006 Denny's World Championship at Woodland Bowl.

    Johnson, Garland, Texas, who is looking for his first career title, came into the week 41st in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings with the cut line for an exemption for 2006-07 currently at 37th. Should Johnson finish in the top four after the 27 games of qualifying, he would earn a bye into Friday's Round of Super 16 which would give him a minimum 11,338 points.

    "The goal is to get to the top four. That would be huge," said Johnson. "That's what I need to salvage this season. It's been a rough season so far."

    Johnson, 28, opened the day with a 216, but followed that with his lowest score of the day, a 160. He bounced back to average 239.71 with four games over 250 over the final seven games, including a 267 in game nine.

    Ryan Shafer.jpg Pete Weber.jpg Mike DeVaney averaged 225.11 over his second nine-game block to finish second with 4,014. First day leader PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber (left), who is looking for his third career World Championship, is third with 4,002. Ryan Shafer (right) is fourth with 3,938, while Indianapolis native Ronnie Russell is fifth with 3,936.

    Ken Simard, Greenville, S.C., struck out in the 10th frame to defeat Marc Massie, Ft. Wright, Ky., 213-211, in a one-game roll-off to determine the 49th and final spot into Thursday's final nine-game qualifying set after they tied at 3,696 through 18 games.

    Following Thursday's nine games of qualifying, the field will be cut to the top 36. The top four from qualifying will receive a bye into the Round of Super 16 while the remaining 32 bowlers will compete in best-of-seven-games match play beginning Thursday at 6 p.m.

    Norm Duke, Clermont, Fla., Tommy Jones, Mike Scroggins and Wes Malott also earned berths into the event's Round of Super 16 as the top four bowlers in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings.

    The final four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a four-season exemption through the 2009-10 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, March 26, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 2 p.m. EST.

    Pete Weber leads Day One Qualifying at PBA Denny's World Championship

    2003PBA15PeteWeber.jpg Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Hall of Famer Pete Weber owns two PBA World Championship titles and has won two titles at Woodland Bowl. All that adds up to the perfect recipe for success in this week's 2006 Denny's World Championship.

    Weber led the first day of qualifying in the third of four Majors on the Denny's PBA Tour schedule with a 2,122 nine-game pinfall Tuesday at Woodland Bowl. Weber, a 32-time titlist from St. Ann. Mo., captured titles in consecutive seasons at Woodland Bowl in 1991 and 1992, both of which were Major events.

    "I have always enjoyed bowling here and I've always had a good record here," said Weber, who won his 32nd career title earlier this season. "When you come into a house and feel comfortable before you even walk in the door it let's you relax a little more, and I definitely feel relaxed."

    DJ_Archer_5729.jpg Mike Machuga.jpg Weber averaged 226.60 over the first five games, then bowled back-to-back 268s in games six and seven. After a 199 in game eight - his only game under 200 - he finished strong with a 254. Mike Machuga (left), who is looking for his first career Major, is second with 2,055. D.J. Archer (right) led the second squad and is third overall with 2,023.

    Randy Pedersen, a 13-time Tour titlist who won a World Championship in 1987 when the event was named the National Championship, is fourth with 2,020. Pedersen is ESPN's color analyst for the PBA. Chris Barnes rounds out the top five with 2,008. Defending champion and 2005 PBA Player of the Year Patrick Allen is 26th with 1,923.

    Tommy_Jones_5732.jpg Norm_Duke_5731.jpg Norm Duke (left), Tommy Jones (right), Mike Scroggins and Wes Malott earned automatic berths into the event's Round of Super 16 as the top four bowlers in the 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings.

    The entire 182-bowler field will bowl a second nine-game qualifying session Wednesday, after which the top 49 bowlers will return Thursday morning for nine more games of qualifying.

    The final four will bowl for the $100,000 top prize and a four-season exemption through the 2009-10 Denny's PBA Tour season on Sunday, March 26, with the live ESPN telecast airing at 2 p.m. EST.
