LUBBOCK, Texas (June 29, 2019) – Zeke Bayt, a 27-year-old right-hander from Westerville, Ohio, averaged 244.38 Saturday to lead the opening qualifying round in the PBA Lubbock Sports Shootout presented by Ebonite at South Plains Lanes.

Bayt, a semi-regular PBA touring player for the past four years, was one of five players among the top 10 after eight games who are trying for their first PBA Tour titles. Bayt’s best previous finish was third with partner Dick Allen in the 2017 Mark Roth-Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship. He overtook Brad Miller of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, in the final game to take the lead.

The Lubbock Sports Shootout is the opening event of the 2019 Go Bowling! PBA Summer Tour and the USBC Cup points competition. All 10 events in the summer series will be livestreamed exclusively by PBA’s online streaming partner, FloBowling.

Bayt rolled games of 226, 203, 258, 300, 212, 192, 278 and 286 for a first-round total of 1,955 pins, 43 ahead of Miller. Miller also is trying for his first PBA Tour title. Tom Daugherty of Riverview, Florida, was in third place with 1,872 pins followed by non-titlist AJ Chapman of Manchester, Iowa, at 1,870 and Dom Barrett of England with a 1,861 total.

Anthony Lavery-Spahr of Pasadena, Texas, and AJ Johnson of Oswego, Illinois, in seventh and ninth places, respectively are the other non-title winners among the top 10.

Competition continues Sunday when the top 39 qualifiers will advance to a six-game cashers round at 8:30 a.m. The top 16 after 14 games will bowl an eight-game match play round at 12:15 p.m. with the top four players advancing to the stepladder finals at 4:15 p.m. All times are Central.
