PBA Oil Patterns: Earl Anthony
The Earl Anthony Pattern places a premium on execution and repetition, qualities which Earl Anthony exemplified. This 40 foot pattern has a unique design in which the oil widens, as opposed to narrows, down the lane. The unusual placement of widening oil down the lane will force players to make premium shots from a variety of angles. As the pattern breaks down, look for players to make unique moves and precision shots, ala Earl Anthony. 2010-11 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tournaments Using the Earl Anthony: One A Day Earl Anthony Memorial Classic.
