Mike Machuga

Michael Machuga captured the Chameleon Championship at Taylor Lanes, the fourth stop on the Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour. Mike, the No. 5 seed, struck out in the 10th frame to defeat No. 1 seed Bill O’Neill, 209-204, to win his second title in his eight year PBA career.

Machuga climbed the ladder as the No. 5 seed, defeating No. 4 Sean Rash of Wichita, Kansas, 196-190, No. 3 Brian Kretzer of Dayton, Ohio, 245-188, No. 2 Wes Malott of Argyle, Texas, 221-210 to advance to the championship match. Machuga advanced to Sunday’s televised finals as the No. 5 seed. The original telecast was originally scheduled to be a four-man stepladder finals, but due to a scoring malfunction during Friday’s Round of 16 match play, the PBA decided to change the televised format to a five-man stepladder finals. Machuga’s last title, 2005 Greater Omaha Classic in Council Bluffs, Iowa, was also on the Chameleon lane pattern.
