Storm takes 11 of 16 spots at PBA World Championship...

 

Storm/Roto Grip staffers and free agents using Storm and Roto Grip equipment took 11 of 16 spots at the PBA World Championship in Las Vegas. Storm's Jason Belmonte led the staffers, finishing in third place.

In each divisional final, named in honor of past PBA World Champions Don Carter, Billy Hardwick, Johnny Petraglia and Mike Aulby, four players will bowl one game with the lowest-scoring player eliminated. The three surviving players will bowl a second game, again eliminating the low score. The two survivors will then bowl a game to decide who advances to the PBA World Championship finals which will follow the same format.

All five PBA World Championship rounds will be contested on Saturday, Nov. 19, in a special arena lanes setup at South Point, starting at 10:30 a.m. PT. The telecasts will air on ESPN on five consecutive Sundays except Christmas Day (Dec. 11, 18, Jan. 1, 8 and 15) at 1 p.m. ET.

First prize in the 2011 PBA World Championship is $50,000.

The World Series of Bowling will take a break Thursday. Competition resumes Friday with the All Region South Point Open and Carmen Salvino Classic Tour Qualifying Round, followed by a special PBA West Region Member/Non-Member Doubles event Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Competition for PBA Tour players resumes Monday with Carmen Salvino Classic qualifying rounds.
