LAUSANNE, February 22 – England’s Dom Barrett and USA’s Danielle McEwan win the men’s and women’s World Bowling Tour final matches respectively in an exciting showcase event presented by the Professional Bowlers Association. The final wraps up the 15 event, global series tour and features a new trial scoring system labelled “Current Frame Scoring”.
The finals aired last night on ESPN and featured the perfect 300 Game from Barrett against USA’s Mike Fagan who scored 256 in the title match. The semi-finals saw a close game between Fagan and Australia’s Jason Belmonte with Fagan moving on with a win of 265 over Belmonte’s 256. In the women’s event, youngster McEwan took on seasoned veteran and number one in ranking points, Kelly Kulick to win the title with a nail biting finish where McEwan took 256 to Kulick’s 243. USA’s Liz Johnson was beaten by McEwan in the semi-finals with McEwan triumphing on a final score of 256 to Johnson’s 233.
The event wraps up the end of the 2014/2015 rolling point’s tour which has seen over 700 of the best bowlers from across the world compete in an exciting list of global host cities including Tokyo, Kuwait City, Munich and Las Vegas.
Current Frame Scoring maintains the traditional 10-frame scoring format but awards 30 pins for a strike, 10 pins for a spare plus the pinfall of the first shot in the frame and actual pinfall after two shots in an open frame. The maximum score is still 300 and this figure is based on the player receiving 10 consecutive strikes with no bonus pins being awarded in the 10th frame.
