Brunswick Kyrene

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.

Brunswick Kyrene - 1/27/19

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Kyrene we had a nice turnout considering there were three other events going on throughout the Valley.  We had 78 total entries (48 qualifying & 30 economy parlay) for 3 squads, with 24 prize winners and a 1 in 3.3 cash ratio.  We paid out over $4,300 in main and side event prize funds.  The players bowled on a pattern we don’t use often that is a tough one to get used to. The PBA pattern Badger that is 52 foot in length. This is the longest oil pattern used in competitive play and “hooking” your ball into the pocket isn’t really an option at the beginning. You have to get used to your ball fading back high flush until they start to break down a little bit.

Brunswick Kyrene - 11/4/18

This weekend’s event was at Brunswick Kyrene.  The event drew 93 total entries (62 qualifying and 31 economy parlay), had 26 cashers, a 1 in 3.6 cash ratio and paid out over $4,400.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a 39ft Seoul oil pattern that played a lot tighter on the fresh, but once the pattern broke down, scoring went through the roof.  We haven’t bowled on this pattern before, but the key was to get your ball into a roll and play a little straighter along the track.  Those that could do that were able to take advantage of the pattern.  We saw the average cut scores for the weekend were high compared to the last few tournaments.  Congrats to Mark Yakich for winning the Momma’s Mystery Score with a nice 214 game for $500.00!  The winner of the free Track plastic bowling ball, with an option to upgrade to any high-performance Track ball, was Ron McDonald.

Brunswick Kyrene - 8/19/18

This weekend’s event was at Brunswick Kyrene.  The event drew 95 total entries (65 qualifying and 30 economy parlay), had 28 cashers, a 1 in 3.4 cash ratio and paid out over $4,400.00 in main and side event prize funds. The players bowled on a 44ft London oil pattern that played a lot tighter on the fresh, but once the pattern broke down, scoring sky rocketed.  We haven’t bowled on this pattern before, but the key was to get your ball into a roll and play a little straighter along the track.  Those that could do that were able to take advantage of the pattern.  We saw the average cut scores for the weekend were pretty high compared to the last couple of tournaments and we even had an honor score.  Congrats to Correen Lieber for her nice 300 game!  Also congrats to Dan Lanious for winning the Momma’s Mystery Score with a nice 256 game for $500.00!  The winner of the free Track plastic bowling ball was Michael Dragon.

Brunswick Kyrene - 5/20/18

Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Kyrene lanes. The event drew 117 total entries (74 qualifying & 43 parlays), had 34 cashers, a 1 in 3.4 cash ratio and paid out over $5,300.00 in main and side event prize fund! The players bowled on a very tough PBA 47ft Scorpion oil pattern that had very low scoring on the fresh and then higher scoring on the later squads. It wasn’t possible for many players to successfully play right of the 7 or 8 boards.  Most players were left of the 2nd arrow and it seemed that the players that had softer ball speeds or higher rev rates faired the best throughout the day. It was definitely a tough pattern and was a change of pace for the regulars who haven’t bowled on a long pattern in quite a while.
