England’s Richie Teece takes FloBowling PBA Bear Open first round lead

Ads


After a 43rd-place finish in the FloBowling PBA Fall Swing’s Wolf Open, England’s Richie Teece averaged 235 for six games to bounce back and take the Bear Open first round lead Wednesday in the second of three events that make up the Fall Swing at The Lanes at Coffee Creek in Owasso, Okla.

Teece (featured photo) posted a 1,410 six-game pinfall total on PBA’s 39-foot Bear lane condition pattern with games of 217, 267, 236, 255, 244 and 191.

“I wasn’t miles away from where I needed to be in the Wolf tournament so I was pretty optimistic coming into the Bear,” Teece said. “I looked at it as a new tournament and I was able to take advantage of making a fresh start.

“These oil patterns make you work hard for sure,” Teece continued. “I’ve made a few changes to my physical game where I’m concentrating more on reading the lane conditions more front to back than side to side which has helped me make smaller and more accurate adjustments.

Teece (right) won his first Go Bowling! PBA Tour title in the 2017 World Series of Bowling Shark Championship but has struggled somewhat this year with best finishes of 10th in the Storm Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles and 12th in the Xtra Frame Kenn-Feld Classic.

“It’s been a steady year but not a great year,” the 28-year-old Teece said. “I haven’t really met the goals I’ve set for myself. I want to feel that buzz again that you get when you make a stepladder final.”

Teece holds a 16-pin lead over fellow Englander Stuart Williams (left) who finished the round in second with a 1,394 pinfall.

Anthony Simonsen (right), who won the Wolf Open for his second title of the season and fifth of his career, struggled in the first round of the Bear Open finishing tied for 36th with a 1,205 pinfall.

Fresh off his third-place finish in the Wolf Open Tuesday, Kris Prather (left) of Plainfield, Ill., holds the lead in Tulsa Open qualifying after 18 games (12 games in the Wolf Open and the first six in the Bear Open) with a 4,096 pinfall (227.5 average). He bowled games of 238, 279, 246, 223, 177 and 170 in Bear Open first round.

“Obviously I’m disappointed with the way I finished the round but in general I’m still pretty confident,” Prather said. “The challenge of bowling multiple tournaments like this is that it just gets harder and harder to repeat good shots.”

The field returns for the second Bear Open six-game round Thursday that will determine the top five players who will advance to the stepladder finals at 7:30 p.m. CT.

The players also are competing to make the cut to the top 18 for the match play rounds of the Tulsa Open which begin on Friday. The top 18 scorers after 24-game qualifying totals from the Wolf and Bear events will advance to match play which consists of two six-game round robin match play rounds on Friday and the final six-game round on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. After match play the top five players advance to the Tulsa Open stepladder finals Saturday at 12:30 p.m.
