Bowlero Kyrene

Our event this weekend was a huge one! 129 total entries with 84 qualifying entries and 45 economy parlay entries with a payout of over $6,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The event had a cash ratio of 1 in 4.1 and paid out a first-place prize of $1,100.00!

The players bowled on a Bear oil pattern that wasn’t easy by any means, but also wasn’t incredibly difficult. It appeared that many of the players that were able to get inside and slow curve it from left to right started to do well as the squads and games went on. The average cut scores for the event were around +40 to +50. This mean the players were basically just needing to bowl average to make the cut.

AMF McRay - 1/12/20

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay and drew 110 total entries (72 qualifying and 38 economy parlay), had 28 cashers, a 1 in 3.9 cash ratio and paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players bowled on a 35ft Boardwalk oil pattern that played a bit harder than usual. This pattern can tend to be high scoring, because it allows some miss room to the right if the bowler is able to get far enough to the right. That did exist on some of the pairs, but other pairs didn’t have the same look.  The scores on the fresh pattern were a bit low but scoring exploded in the later squads with most bowlers shooting close to +70 to make the cut.

Bowlero Via Linda - 1/5/20

Our season opener of 2020 was an awesome one! We were at Bowlero Via Linda and we had 100 entries, 27 cashers, 1 in 3.8 cash ratio and paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a 40ft Athens pattern that was very misleading.  Many of the bowlers would think they had it figured out and had a good shot and then they would move pairs and find it hard to find that same shot again.  Because the pattern wasn't very long or very short, it allowed players to attack it from all angles.  We had straighter players do well and players that like to cover more boards and curve it more. It was a great turnout and a lot of fun in our season opener. 

AMF Chandler - 12/8/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Chandler Lanes on the 35ft Cheetah oil pattern! It was our final standard event of the 2019 season, and we were happy to see the SFT AHT family come out and support the last event regardless of everything going on this time of year. The event had 95 total entries (66 qualifying entries & 29 economy parlay entries), 26 prize winners, a 1 in 3.65 cash ratio and a payout of over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The cheetah pattern had some high scores at time and even one bowler (Ron Gonzales) who ran the front 10 of the first game of the quarterfinals, but not everyone was able to do that so the cut scores in general were not that crazy considering this is normally a higher scoring sport pattern. The average cut score for the day was around +42 which isn't insanely high, considering there were a few people who went over +100 for their 3 games. These short patterns very commonly seem to work out like that.

AMF Union Hills - 12/1/2019

Our event this weekend was at AMF Union Hills and had a nice turnout with this being the holiday weekend.  We had 69 total entries (50 qualifying & 19 economy parlay) for 3 squads, 21 prize winners and a 1 in 3.3 cash ratio which we paid out over $3,200 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on the 43ft Dean Man’s Curve oil pattern that was a very difficult pattern to play on the fresh. Players had trouble playing on the outside of the lane and there wasn’t a lot of margin of error when playing inside.  Pair to pair saw some big differences, but once the oil pattern started to break down in the 3rd squad, then scores started to go up!

AMF Tempe Village - 11/24/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Tempe Village. We were worried we would get a low turnout due to other events going on, but the turnout was still pretty good! We had 77 total entries with 49 qualifying entries and 28 economy parlay entries. The players bowled on a 45ft Dragon oil pattern that had a lot more friction to it than most expected. Players were able to get the ball to hook from the outside and curve the lane a bit as long as they had softer ball speeds for their rev rate. There were definitely a variety of styles that matched up and did well this weekend. However, it seemed like 1-2 people in each division had a really good look and scores very high, while the rest of the field scored closer to normal SFT cut scores like +40 to +60.

AMF McRay - 11/17/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay and we had a huge turnout with 120 entries (73 qualifying and 47 economy parlays).  We had 31 cashers, a 1 in 3.87 cash ratio and paid out over $5,300.00 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on the 42ft PBA Scorpion oil pattern that played pretty tough for most of the day.  There were some higher scores but bowlers were able to play a variety of angles on the pattern.  The cut scores stayed around +60 for most of the day, which meant that you had to bowl about 10 pins over your average per game to qualify.

Bowlero Kyrene - 11/10/19

This weekend’s event was at Bowlero Kyrene lanes where we had 104 total entries (60 qualifying and 44 economy parlays), 28 cashers a 1 in 3.7 cash ratio and paid out over $4,700.00 in main and side event prize fund. The bowlers bowled on the 39ft PBA Viper oil pattern that was very difficult on the fresh, but seemed to breakdown and allow for some higher scoring in the later squads.  Also, bowlers would have a different look going from pair to pair and those that were able to adjust quickly were able to take advantage.

Bowlero Avondale - 11/3/19

Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Avondale!  We had a good turnout, with all the other events going on throughout the state, with 68 total entries (48 qualifying and 20 economy parlay), 21 cashers, 1 in 3.24 cash ratio and paid out over $4,100.00 in main and side event prize funds! The players bowled on a 36ft Brunswick Phase 1 oil pattern that played very difficult on the fresh, but really opened up on the last squad of the day. The pattern played a bit tricky with the middle of the lane playing like a shorter pattern, but the outsides did not. The outside part of the lane seemed to want to hang or not have as much reaction off them as one would expect with a shorter pattern. This kept scores very low until the last squad of the day with everyone moving left and being able to open up the pattern for the highest scores of the day.

AMF Desert Hills - 10/20/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Desert Hills unfortunately we had a low turnout due to other tournaments running this weekend.  We had 43 total entries with 26 qualifying entries and 17 economy parlay entries. We paid out just around $1,700.00 in main and side event prize funds for the event.  The players bowled on a very tough 38ft Los Angeles that had low for the day. For the most part, players were trying to play outside or the deep the middle of the lane keeping their angles fairly tight.  The key to this pattern was leaving makeable spares and then picking up your spares.
