Bowling News USA - February 23, 2011 Andres Gomez Tops the List of Storm Staffers in Round One

Amateur Fero Williams of Fairfield, Ohio, averaged 248.17 to race away with the first round lead in the 68th Lumber Liquidators U.S. Open at Brunswick Zone-Carolier Tuesday by 105 pins over a pair of South American players, Andres Gomez of Colombia and Ildemaro Ruiz of Venezuela.

Williams, a 30-year-old former Team USA member, rolled games of 269, 234, 268, 266, 194 and 258 on the most demanding lane conditions of the 2010-11 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour season, finishing his opening round with a 1,489 total. Williams has never won a PBA title and an amateur has never won the U.S. Open.

Gomez and Ruiz, who averaged an impressive 230.67, were tied with 1,384 pinfall totals. Like Williams, both are also trying for their first PBA titles. Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich., the winner of the 2010 PBA World Championship and runner-up in the 2011 PBA Tournament of Champions in January, was one pin behind Gomez and Ruiz.

All 383 players in the field will bowl two additional six-game qualifying rounds Wednesday and Thursday before the field is cut to the top 95 for an eight-game cashers’ round Friday morning. The top 24 after a total of 26 games will then advance to three eight-game round-robin match play rounds Friday night and Saturday.

The top six players after 50 games will advance to the unique six-player stepladder finals, starting with two games live on ESPN2 Saturday at 10 p.m. Eastern. Saturday’s winner will then join the top three finalists for Sunday’s championship round at 3 p.m. Eastern on ESPN. First prize in the event is $80,000.

During U.S. Open week, pba.com’s Xtra Frame video streaming service will provide more than 70 hours of live coverage of qualifying and match play rounds. To subscribe to Xtra Frame, visit pba.com and click on the Xtra Frame logo.
