Bowling News USA - January 19, 2014 Belmo Remains on Top After Three Rounds at T of C

 

2012-13 PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte lengthened his lead after third round qualifying of the Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions.

The Storm staffer finished the third round with a 3,787 15-game pinfall (252.4 average)  lengthening his lead to 129 pins over one-time tour titlist Chris Loschetter in second with 3,648. In today’s third round, Belmonte had a 1,251 pinfall with games of 233, 290, 242, 243 and 243.

Belmonte, who was named Player of the Year on Friday, has his game hitting on all cylinders but had to make a last minute equipment adjustment just prior to competing in the TOC.

“I intended to bring equipment from overseas but couldn’t because it wasn’t approved for this tournament so I had to have some equipment drilled up when I got here,” Belmonte said. “Del (Ballard - Storm National Tour Representative) got me set up with two balls (2 Roto Grip Uproars) which have been a great one-two punch so far. I haven’t used any other equipment other than those two balls and I just used one in this block.”

The seven-time Tour champion hopes this will be the year he breaks through for a win in PBA’s signature tournament. He finished second in 2013, losing to Hall of Famer Pete Weber in the championship match 224-179. In 2013 he finished third.

After today’s third round 21 players from a field of 30 who were regional or PBA50 Tour advanced to join national tour winners for this evening’s fourth qualifying round. The players will return Monday morning for a final five-game qualifying block Monday morning to determine the top 24 who will enter match play beginning Monday evening.
