Tournament News

Brian Ziesig of Levittown, N.Y., won the Professional Bowlers Association GEICO Mark Roth Plastic Ball Championship Sunday at AMF Babylon Lanes to become the first amateur to win a Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour event since 2002.

For PBA legend Mark Roth, a visit to AMF Babylon Lanes for this week’s GEICO Mark Roth Plastic Ball Championship provided him with an opportunity to visit with some old friends and recount memories of a storied career.

Heading into this week's Go RVing Match Play Championship (click here for the complete bracket and to sign up for the official PBA Bracket Battle game), I thought now might be a good time to go back and rank the greatest rivalries in the history of the PBA Tour.

What if the PGA Tour required players to use persimmon woods or the USTA required its players to use wood-framed tennis rackets instead of today’s equipment that incorporates high-tech titanium and graphite technology?
