Bowling News USA - May 20, 2013 Mike Fagan Leads Storm Staffers at PBA Summer Swing Opener

 

The newest member of the Storm Staff of Champions is making his presence felt early at the GEICO PBA Summer Swing Badger Open.

Mike Fagan, who signed a contract with Storm Products three weeks ago, is leading the staffers after five games. Fagan shot an 1185 five game total on A squad.

Four-time PBA Tour winner Bill O’Neill averaged 252 and opened with a 300 game to take the first round lead at Waukesha Lanes today.

Competing on PBA’s new 52-foot Badger lane conditioning pattern on a wood surface, Fagan had games of  276 - 216 - 232 - 258 and 203.

"The lanes are burning up early and the midlane doesn't catch up near as early as the fronts," said Del Ballard Jr., Storm PBA Tour Representative. "Our balls that read the midlane well are responding well, especially the Marvel™ Pearl. Fagan used a Marvel Pearl the whole block."

Qualifying for the Badger Open continues this afternoon with the second round at 5 p.m. After Monday’s qualifying the field will be cut to the top 24 for match play on Tuesday.

Following the Badger Open will be the Wolf Open May 22-24 at AMF West Lanes, Bear Open May 26-28 at AMF Bowlero and the Milwaukee Open May 29-30 also at AMF Bowlero. Qualifying rounds from each of the animal pattern events will determine the top five for the Milwaukee Open. Stepladder finals will be taped over two days by the CBS Sports Network June 1-2 at Bowlero.

The GEICO Summer King of the Swing special event, a five-player stepladder final with a $25,000 prize fund and a $10,000 first prize, will conclude the PBA Tour’s Milwaukee summer series on June 2.
