Our event this weekend was at Brunswick Mesa. It was on the Easter holiday which made the turn out a little smaller, but we were happy to be able to provide an event for those that were looking to bowl on the special day. The event drew 72 total entries (55 qualifying entries & 17 economy parlay), had 21 cashers, a 1 in 3.4 cash ratio and paid out over $3,000.00 in main and side event prize fund.
The players bowled on the newest version of the PBA Wolf oil pattern that is 33ft in length instead of 32 ft and it yielded a variety of scores through out the day. It was very clear that the very fresh was extremely difficult and had the lowest scores. However, as they were bowled on more and more the scores got higher and higher as it seemed that increased play made the short pattern more predictable and easier to manage. Even with that said, the cut scores were very low taking an average cut score of +10 to advance to the quarter finals, which isn’t even bowling average.
