-Swanson Flys To The Top At $100,000 Brunswick Women's World Open

11/05/2001 - PWBA
      LAS VEGAS, N.V. - It didn't take long for Jennifer Swanson to settle in at the $100,000 Brunswick Women's World Open. The Shelton, Connecticut native opened today's eight-game block as the tournament leader tallying a 1,919 pin fall and a 239.87 average.

      "Taking last week off really helped me relax and have fun today," said Swanson. "I've been working on my game a lot and today everything just seemed to click. This is a long week of bowling. It's nice to get off to a great start but we have four days of qualifying and it's still very early in the game."

      Seeking her first title of 2001, Swanson dazzled the capacity crowd at the Suncoast Bowling Center by following a 727 series with a perfect game. The 300 performance was Swanson's ninth of her career. The four-year pro holds a 16-pin margin over Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, N. Richland Hills, Texas who closed out the session with 1,903 and 237.87.

      The PWBA leader in titles (6), earnings ($110,670), competition points (15,835), 214.44) this season, Dorin-Ballard is attempting to qualify for her 18th televised championship round. A victory this week would tie her with Patty Costello's all-time professional women's bowling record of seven titles in one season.

      Trailing Dorin-Ballard by eight pins is Cheektowaga's Liz Johnson. The New Yorker opened her first two games 255-249 and averaged 236.87. Rounding out the top five are Carol Norman, Ardmore, Oklahoma (1,830, 228.75) and Cara Honeychurch, Australia (1,828, 228.5).

      Local PWBA competitors including Dede Davidson, 1,678, 209.75 (Las Vegas), Wendy Macpherson, 1,594, 199.25 (Henderson), Tammy Buchholz, 1,573, 196.62 (Las Vegas), Trish Holthausen, 1,541,192.62 (Las Vegas), Jeanette Robinson, 1,422, 177.75 (Las Vegas) all finished the day in contention to make the cut to the top 24.

      Qualifying for the 62-women field resumes on Tuesday (Nov. 5) at 10 a.m. and will continue on Wednesday and Thursday (Nov. 6-7) at 10 a.m. Following Thursday morning's games the field will be cut to the top 24 for match play starting Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. and continue with two more eight-game blocks on Friday (Nov. 8 -- 10 a.m., 4:30 p.m.). At the conclusion of 56-game preliminaries, the top five bowlers compete on Saturday (Nov. 10) at 12 p.m. in the championship rounds. ESPN2 will tape the championships and later broadcast them on Monday, November 12 at 9 p.m. and the 13th at 3:00 a.m. (all times are Eastern).

Brunswick Shootout Update
      Following Saturday's Brunswick Women's World Open finals, the top eight PWBA competition point finishers will compete in the $25,000 Brunswick Shootout. The Shootout will also be taped by ESPN2 and broadcast on Monday, November 26 and 29th at 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. In addition the event will air on ESPN on November 29 at 2 p.m. (all times are Eastern).

-37th AMF Bowling World Cup 2001 - Men's First 16 Games, Women's First 8

11/05/2001 - AMF Bowling
      PATTAYA, Thailand -- Mexico's Danny Falconi and England's Kirsten Penny are leading their divisions at the 2001 AMF Bowling World Cup, underway at P.S. Bowling Pattaya in Pattaya, Thailand.

      Falconi bypassed early men's leader Benny Dytoc of the Philippines by crafting an eight-game series of 1,929 pins Monday, including the tournament high game thus far, 290. Falconi, with 3,755 pins for 16 games and a 234.69 average, enjoys a 152-pin edge over Indonesia's Ryan Lalisang, who has a 16-game total of 3,603 pins and a 225.19 average.

      "I've worked very hard over the past year, making some changes to my game," Falconi said. "Probably the most important one was changing from a five-step to a six-step delivery. The extra step just makes everything flow more smoothly for me. I also worked with [1995 Bowling World Cup champion] Pat Healey on learning some new hand releases the professional bowlers use."

      Dytoc slipped to a tie for seventh place with Israel's Yahav Rabin. Both men carded 3,448 pins for their first 16 games and are averaging 215.5.

      Thailand's Wiwat Yuthanakomchai is in 37th place with 3,134 pins and a 195.88 average. "My scores today were much better than Sunday's," he said. "It takes a while for me to adjust and find the right pattern. Now I'm much more confident I can get through the next stage of the tournament tomorrow."

      Earlier on Monday, Kirsten Penny opened the women's competition by knocking down 1,766 pins for a 220.75 average. The 25-year-old administrator from Stevenage withstood a late charge by Dutch champion Ross Greiner, whose closing 220 game pulled her to within 27 pins of Penny.

      The Philippines' Liza del Rosario is 15 pins behind Greiner, with a total of 1,724 pins and 215.50 average, while Sweden's Asa Wetterlund is just two pins in back of del Rosario. Kristal Scott of the US, whose 286 was the high women's game Monday morning, is in fifth , averaging 206 with 1,648 pins.

      Somdech BoonLung, Thailand's entry, is 43rd after her first eight games, with 1,347 pins and a 168.44 average.

      The men complete their first 24 games of qualifying Tuesday, at which time the 87-player field will be cut to the top 24 players. The women bowl eight more games Tuesday night and complete their first 24 games of qualifying Wednesday morning. The top 24 scorers in the 61-woman field return to P.S. Bowling Pattaya Thursday, along with the top 24 men, for 16 more games of qualifying.

      The AMF Bowling World Cup is sponsored by AMF Bowling, the world's largest bowling company. AMF Bowling owns and operates 517 bowling centers worldwide, with 400 in the United States and 117 in nine other countries.

-37th AMF Bowling World Cup 2001 - Women's And Men's First 8 Games

11/05/2001 - AMF Bowling
      PATTAYA, Thailand -- Kirsten Penny of England is the leader among the women after eight games in the 2001 AMF Bowling World Cup, underway at P.S. Bowling Pattaya in Pattaya, Thailand.

      Penny finished tied for third place in the 2000 AMF Bowling World Cup, and Monday she set out to better than finish by knocking down 1,766 pins for a 220.75 average. The 25-year-old administrator from Stevenage withstood a charge by Dutch champion Ross Griener, whose closing 220 game pulled her to within 27 pins of Penny.

      "I found the lanes very similar to the way they were during the practice session, but the center's temperature was a little cooler, so I was able to get lined up and comfortable quickly," said Penny.

      "Having competed in the Bowling World Cup last year, I feel a bit more established this time, less of an unknown quantity. You're always a little apprehensive when you compete in a big tournament for the first time, but now I expect myself to reach the top eight this year, because I was able to achieve that last year."

      The Philippines' Liza del Rosario is 15 pins behind Greiner, with a total of 1,724 pins and 215.50 average, while Sweden's Asa Wetterlund is just two pins in back of del Rosario. Kristal Scott of the US, whose 286 was the high single game Monday morning, is in fifth place, averaging 206 with 1,648 pins.

      The men resume play Monday afternoon with their second set of eight games. Benny Dytoc, a 36-year-old bowling pro shop operator from the Philippines, is the current leader, with a 236.5 average and 1,892 pins.

      Thailand's bowlers, Somdech BoonLung and Wiwat Yuthanakomchai, are in 43rd and 38th place in the women's and men's divisions, respectively. Sixty-one women and 87 men are competing in the 37th annual AMF Bowling World Cup, and the 87 nations represented are one shy of the mark set last year in Lisbon, Portugal.

      The AMF Bowling World Cup is sponsored by AMF Bowling, the world's largest bowling company. AMF Bowling owns and operates 517 bowling centers worldwide, with 400 in the United States and 117 in nine other countries.
