AMF McRay - 6/9/2019

The event today was at AMF McRay, we had 71 total entries with 41 qualifying and 30 economy parlay entries. The players bowled on the 38ft Winding Road oil pattern that yeilded medium to higher scores. The cut scores varied but averaged around +50 for the event, which meant it took bowlers bowling 10 pins over their average a game to make the cut. 

We want to welcome Harold Smith and Geoff Garrow to the SFT AHT family! Thanks to you guys for coming out and trying out the event, we hope you had a good time in your first event! 

The quarter finals were very low scoring, with one of the divisions taking minus to be the division champion! We had Bob Gazis coming out of the A division with +33, Kevin Dollar -3 in the C division and Dan Marks at +14. Which means the average leader actually bowled under their average to win their division. 

Brunswick Mesa - 6/2/19

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Mesa!  We had a total of 78 entries (51 Qualifying and 27 economy parlays) which was a good turnout considering a lot of other events going on.  The event had a total of 24 cashers, a 1 in 3.25 cash ratio and paid out over $4,100 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on a very difficult 36ft Stockholm oil pattern that had some low scores, but also saw some higher scoring if you knew how to play the lanes correctly.  Even though there was a good amount of hook due to the shorter pattern, it was still very easy to push your ball through the break point or miss the friction that was there.  The average cut score ended up taking scores that required bowling 10-15 pins over your average per game, depending on the Division, as we saw some low scores advance from the B Division.

AMF Union Hills - 5/27/19

Our event this weekend was a big one! Such a big one that we almost broke just about every single event record we had. We had an entry just short of our record with 255 entries (175 qualifying & 80 economy parlay), 68 cashers, a 1 in 3.75 cash ratio and paid out just over $9,700 in our tournament main event prize fund and a new high of $7,800 in side event payouts for a grand total of just over $17,500 in total payout. The players bowled on a customize 43ft Freedom oil pattern that was created just for this major event. It had higher scores the entire weekend, with players having to average 20 pins over their average to make the cut.  It was a longer oil pattern, but the lane surface itself had enough friction that it allowed them to not play too long. The players that seemed to match up the best seemed to hook it a little bit in the middle of the lane, but there were still some straighter players who were able to figure it out and make a run.

AMF Chandler - 5/19/19

This weekend’s event was at AMF Chandler Lanes and had a nice turnout with all the other events going on around the Valley.  We had a total of 74 entries (45 qualifying and 29 economy parlays), had 26 cashers, a 1 in 3.4 cash ratio and paid out over $3,600.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a 35ft boardwalk oil pattern. This pattern can tend to be high scoring, because it allows players to get some free hook and some miss room to the right if the player is able to get far their ball far enough towards the right.  The average cut scores for the weekend were high, around +90.  We even saw Josh Molloy almost shoot an 800-scratch series, but he came up just a bit short shooting 840 with handicap.

AMF McRay - 5/5/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay.  Since it was Cinco de Mayo, we were happy to have a decent turnout and we appreciate everyone who decided to come out and bowl with us. We had 100 total entries with 63 qualifying entries and 37 economy parlay entries! The event had a total of 29 cashers, a 1 in 3.45 cash ratio and paid out over $4,700 in main and side event prize funds. The event was bowled on the 41ft Turnpike oil pattern which had low scoring for all three squads. The average cut score for the event was around +30 which meant bowlers only had to bowl 5-10 pins over average per game. The pattern's medium length allowed bowlers to play it from all angles and have a good amount of success.

AMF Chandler - 4/28/19

Our event this weekend was held at AMF Chandler Lanes. We had a total of 97 entries (58 qualifying & 39 economy parlay), creating 26 cashers, a 1 in 3.7 cash ratio and a pay out of over $4,100 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on a very difficult 52ft Badger oil pattern that maintained a moderate scoring pace.  The long oil pattern produced some high scores the first set.  The scoring pace slowed down the second set, and we saw it go back up for third qualifying squad.

Brunswick Desert Sky - 4/20/19

Our event this weekend was quite a bit smaller than expected due to the holiday weekend and other events going on. We were still happy to see a total of 56 entries (33 qualifying & 23 economy parlay), creating 18 cashers, a 1 in 3.1 cash ratio and a pay out of over $1,500.00 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on a very difficult 39ft Beijing oil pattern that yielded some pretty low scores, with lower scores in the A Division than any other Division.  Being a medium length oil pattern, it did allow players to play a variety of angles, but that did cause players to try more overall options which sometimes caused them to split or lose focus on overall shot making.

Brunswick Mesa - 4/14/19

This weekend’s event was at Brunswick Mesa lanes. We had a great turnout today with a total of 123 entries (67 qualifying and 56 economy parlays) and a record breaking 64 bowlers on the first squad!!  We had 34 cashers and a 1 in 3.61 cash ratio that paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on the 42ft Tokyo oil pattern. It was a medium to long oil pattern and almost played like a house shot on the fresh, but the lanes transitioned very quickly.  Bowlers that could move inside and use their rev rate could continue to play along the track which resulted in higher cut scores.

Brunswick Kyrene - 4/7/19

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Kyrene lanes! We had a nice turnout with 83 entries (59 qualifying entries and 34 economy parlay), 28 cashers, and a 1 in 2.97 cash ratio and paid out over $4,500.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a different version of the PBA Cheetah oil pattern that was a little longer at 37ft instead of the traditional 35ft length.  The Cheetah pattern tends to be one of the higher scoring sport patterns, as it allows players to get some free hook on the gutter which is like a house shot. However, it is still a sport pattern, and isn't a walk in the park. There isn't a lot of oil in the middle of the lane, like a house shot, so players tend to play this pattern outside early to allow the ball to roll more vs. trying to hook the ball down lane.

AMF Chandler - 3/31/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Chandler Lanes.  There was a total of 106 entries (70 Qualifying Entries & 36 Economy Parlay) with 27 prize winners, and a 1 in 3.9 cash ratio, paying out just over $4,100.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on the 48ft Eifel Tower oil pattern. The scoring pace for the pattern was medium to high, with the inside part of the lane seeming to be the area where bowlers were able to score the most.  Those playing the outside part of the lane found it very unforgiving.
