AMF McRay - 9/8/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay.  We had 82 total entries (45 qualifying & 37 economy parlay), with 22 cashers, a 1 in 3.4 cash ratio and a payout of over $3,200.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a very difficult 40ft PBA Bear oil pattern that had some lower scores than usual. The pattern allowed players to play from any angle, but the key to doing well was leaving makeable spares and picking up spares.  Pair to pair there were some differences with oil carry down, but once the oil pattern started to break down in the 3rd squad, then scores increased a little with the average cut being around +40.

Brunswick Kyrene - 9/2/19

Wow!  What a weekend!  Another major, another major champion and another SFT AHT record!  We beat our old record by over 20 entries!  277 total entries throughout the 3 days, with 183 qualifying entries and 94 economy parlays.  The players bowled on a very interesting 42ft Patriot pattern that at times had low scores and at times had high scores.  It was pretty clear though, that the players that had the best ball reaction were players that could get in and slow hook it a bit.  Whether it was lefties or righties, the highest scores came from that kind of approach as a general rule.  The average cut scores for the weekend was around +60 which is medium by most standards.

Bowlero Avondale - 8/25/19

Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Avondale lanes and had a great turn out!  We had 105 total entries (65 qualifying & 40 economy parlay) for 3 squads, 28 prize winners and a 1 in 3.75 cash ratio and paid out over $5,900 in main and side event prizefunds.  The players bowled on the 43ft Brunswick Phantom oil pattern that was a very low scoring event. Players could play in just about any part of the lane, but there wasn’t a lot of margin of error and the pair to pair differences were also tough.

AMF Chandler - 8/18/19

Our even this weekend was at AMF Chandler lanes. We had a total of 96 entries with 60 qualifying entries and 36 economy parlay entries. We paid out over $4,000.00 in main and side event prize fund. The players bowled on the PBA Wolf oil pattern that was medium in difficulty as far as scoring pace. It played like a short pattern in the middle of the lane, but the outside part of the lane didn't hook as much as most people would have expected. This is most commonly the cause of older lane lanes where the topography has caused some crowns near the gutter that cause the lane panel to be slightly tilted towards the gutter. This means that the ball is fighting gravity to an extent when it's located to the right of the crowned lane panel. Even with that slight change, the players that scored the best were ones that played the far outside part of the lane, which is typically where someone must play to bowl well on the Wolf pattern.

AMF Union Hills - 8/11/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Union Hills and we had a nice turnout! We had 67 entries (20 parlay & 47 qualifying), 22 cashers, a 1 in 3.1 cash ratio and paid out over $2,000.00 in main and side event prize funds!  The players bowled on a 43ft Mexico City oil pattern that for the most part was low scoring on the fresh, but scores went up as the day went on. The bowlers that had success were able to play in the middle of the lane and keep their ball inside the ten board at the breakpoint.  If you got it too far outside, then the ball wouldn’t come back and leave you with a washout or split.  The average cut scores were all around the +40 to +50 range, which meant most players had to bowl above their average.

AMF Tempe Village - 8/4/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF Tempe Village and it was a pretty big turnout! We had a whopping 112 entries through 3 squads, which consisted of 70 qualifying entries and 42 economy parlay entries. This created a huge payout of over $5,100.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a very tough 36ft Phase 1 oil pattern, which were bowled on new lanes that were installed at this house at beginning of the year, which forced most players to be able to make shots and convert their makeable spares.  It was very difficult to hook the ball on the fresh and bowlers had to adapt as each pair played differently.  Most of the players that did have success was after the pattern had broken down and you would see the scores increase as the day went on.  The final cut scores for the weekend were only around the +15 range which only requires bowling their average or just a slight bit above average for the 3-game set.

Glenfair Lanes - 7/28/19

Our event this weekend was at Glenfair Lanes. We had a below average turn out with 67 total entries (45 qualifying and 22 economy parlay). The players bowled on a pretty low scoring 42ft Tokyo oil pattern that yeilded cut scores of around +20-+30, so the players had to bowl average to safely make the cut. There were styles that played more direct, but it seemed that more players had success more in the middle of the lane than the outside part of the lane. That is pretty common with the topography at Glenfair. The gutters tend to not play as well with more friction coming from the track area.

Brunswick Via Linda - 7/21/19

This weekends event was at Bowlero Via Linda lanes and we had another solid turn out with 93 total entries (63 qualifying and 30 economy parlay). The players bowled on a very demanding 38ft Atlanta oil pattern that had extremely low scores. We had one of our all time lowest parlay winning scores in the B division, with -22 winning a free entry with progressive! The players played the lanes in a variety of angles, with some playing outside and some playing the deeper inside angles. It did seem that most of the players that did the best didn't have extreme left to right angles or extreme right to left angles. The average cut scores for the day were around +10 which meant the players didn't even need to bowl their average to win prizes at this event! Pretty crazy! 

AMF McRay - 7/14/19

Our event this weekend was at AMF McRay lanes and we had a HUGE turn out! In 3 squads we had 124 entries (51 parlay & 73 qualifying), 29 cashers, a 1 in 4.2 cash ratio and paid out over $5,000.00 in main and side event prize fund!  The players bowled on a 44ft London oil pattern that for the most part was pretty low scoring. There were a handful of players that really seemed to match up and bowl well on the longer oil pattern. The average cut scores were all around the +30 to +40 range which meant most players had to be close to their average or a few pins above it each game.
