CAN’T STOP DYNASTY’S BOWLERS
Gainesville, FL – [January 21, 2009] Dynasty clients made another appearance on the ESPN televised PBA schedule this season. During the 1st 10 televised events on the Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour, Dynasty has had players on 9 of these shows. Two shows had 2 players, another had 3. Dynasty players have 3 wins in 9 official PBA tour events during the 1st half of the season.
Most recently, the Bayer Earl Anthony Medford Classic was televised on ESPN. Dynasty clients Tommy Jones and Patrick Allen were showcased in the final rounds. Tommy Jones got a runner-up finish and Patrick Allen got a 4th place finish. That makes 10 ESPN televised events for the Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour so far this season, 9 of which have featured Dynasty players.
In the tournament quarterfinals, Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas threw strikes in six of his first seven frames to end Patrick Allen’s hopes for back-to-back titles. Allen, from Wesley Chapel, Fla., fought back and earned $5,500 for his fourth place finish.
Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C. was the top qualifier for the event, but he eventually fell to Malott in the finals. Malott, the No. 3 qualifier, won three straight matches on his way to the $25,000 first prize. Two open frames by Jones to start the championship match helped Malott take a 33-pin lead after three frames and five strikes in a row to finish the game clinched the victory. The win gave Malott a 10-point lead over Norm Duke – another Dynasty client – in the Player of the Year points race. Jones, who made his first TV appearance since winning the Geico Classic in West Babylon, N.Y., last March, made a valiant bid to get back into the match, but he couldn’t put together a sustained string of strikes to cut into Malott’s lead. Jones earned $13,000 as runner-up.
The next stop on the Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour will be the H&R Block PBA Tournament of Champions which gets underway Wednesday at Red Rock Resort and Lanes in Las Vegas. Norm Duke of Clermont, Fla., will headline an elite field of 60 PBA champions in his quest for an unprecedented fourth consecutive PBA “major” title. Look for several other Dynasty clients to be featured in this event in addition to Norm Duke.
