Tournament News

Barnes Bounces Back
Sunday, February 10, 2008

Many people predicted after his latest disappointment in a title match that Chris Barnes would break out of his slump in a big way. They were right. Just two weeks after one of the biggest mistakes of his career, Barnes responded with his ninth career title, winning the 2008 Bayer Classic.

Sun City Sequel
Friday, February 08, 2008

Chris Barnes knows as well as anyone the only way to break a bad stretch of luck on television is to keep making the championship round. Barnes defeated Sean Rash, 4-1, Friday in the 2008 Bayer Classic Round of 8 at Oasis Lanes to advance to his fourth consecutive championship round.

Warren Peace
Thursday, February 07, 2008

Chris Warren joked that all three bowlers he crossed with Thursday were young enough to be his sons, but that didn’t stop the Denny’s PBA Tour veteran from copying what his younger competitors were doing.

Haggerty Bounces Back
Wednesday, February 06, 2008

P.J. Haggerty struggled through a tough week away from the Denny’s PBA Tour last week, enduring the flu and the passing of his college bowling coach. The 22-year-old came into this week’s Bayer Classic refreshed and fueled with extra motivation.

Wednesday, February 06, 2008

This week, Spare Shots looks back at a shocking weekend at Red Rock Lanes with odd finishes to both the H&R Block Tournament of Champions and the PBA Exempt Doubles Classic. Read on for that and much more.
