-Bryon Smith Selected BWAA Bowler Of The Month

02/04/2002 - BWAA
      Bryon Smith was voted Bowling Writers Association of America Bowler of the Month for January by a select panel of the organization, BWAA President Lyle Zikes announced today.

      Smith, a 29-year-old right-hander from Roseburg, Ore., earned his first career Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) title Jan. 19 by defeating PBA Hall of Famer and five-time Player of the Year Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., 236-220 in the championship match of the 53rd American Bowling Congress Masters in Reno, Nev.

      Williams, who in PBA competition last month also tied for third place in Tacoma, Wash., and finished fifth in Las Vegas, was a distant runner-up in the balloting.


-BWAA Honors Bob Glass, Shirley Hintz As Top 2002 Senior Bowlers

02/04/2002 - BWAA
      Over the 22-year history of PBA senior competition, some of the game's greatest names from the past—Dick Weber, Dave Davis, Dave Soutar and recently Mark Roth—have rekindled memories with title-winning performances touched with a flourish of nostalgia.

      Bob Glass, a former economics researcher at the University of Kansas, came to the senior tour from a different direction: He merely moonlighted as a regional pro, crunching more numbers with a pencil than pins with a bowling ball.

      Yet, by virtue of his third consecutive Bowling Writers Association of America Senior Bowler of the Year award, Glass, Lawrence, Kan., continues to establish his greatness in competition among bowlers 50 and older.

      Meanwhile, Shirley Hintz, Cocoa, Fla., who has enjoyed a productive if unsensational bowling career as an amateur and a pro, put a major feather in her cap by being named the 2002 BWAA Senior Woman Bowler of the Year.

      Glass led the PBA Senior Tour in average, points and top five finishes in 2002. But a season-ending $30,000 victory in the Brunswick Senior World Open, a non-PBA event, may have sealed the honor he also achieved in 2000 and 2001.

      Hintz defeated 86 women senior bowlers to win the WIBC Senior Queens in 2002. She added five gold medals in the Senior Division of the Tournament of the Americas and finished fourth in both the National Golden Ladies Classic and the PWBA Regional Seniors Championship in Las Vegas.

      Voting totals collected among a select committee of bowling writers gave Glass 47 points compared to 18 for Mark Roth, who led the PBA Senior Tour in earnings. Hintz collected 35 points on the ladies ballot, while Lorrie Nichols placed second in the voting with 21.
