Another Dane on the Honor Roll

May 27th, 2010  |  Published in Breaking News

Paul Hutchinson, 20, from Esbjerg in western Denmark, outpointed the talented PBA pro Mika Koivuniemi by a squeaker to take the honors from Squad 5, 1416 – 1405 over the six games.

There were five well-known Europeans in the hunt going into the final game, two of whom were signed up for the $1,000 Ebonite prize should they be using the company’s equipment, but Hutchinson nipped their hopes in the bud with a final game of 258. Alas, he was using a competitors arsenal, so did not get a further reward than a pass into Sunday’s finals.

The slim Dane expressed his liking for this dual pattern set by Kegel. “It is a good way to test bowlers,” he commented. “You have to do two different things, and that satisfies me a lot. You need to be two sorts of player to win. wwith just four feet, it is not a big difference but you still have to think a lot in the way you have to play, so it is still two different games.

“Actually I played with the same balls on both patterns and the same line through the heads, but changed about five boards at the back of the lanes. I playeda lot softer on the longer pattern and much more aggressively on the short.

“My history in this event is to make the first round of the finals and then drop out. I hope to do better than that this year.”

Squad 6 takes to the lanes at 19:00 local time and the format switches to four squads a day for the last two days of qualifying.
