KulickAfter a busy four weeks with World Bowling Tour events held in three different countries, England's Dom Barrett and the United States' Kelly Kulick maintained their positions at the top of the WBT rankings.

Both leaders took part in all three events -- the H.H. Emir Cup in Doha, Qatar, the Kingdom of Bahrain Open in Manama, Bahrain, and the Brunswick Euro Challenge in Munich, Germany.

Kulick extended her lead on the women's field after picking up 25 points in Qatar, 15 points in Bahrain, and 40 points in Germany. She sits on top of the rankings with 638 points.

Liz Johnson of the United States is second with 526 points, while fellow American Danielle McEwan picked up a total of 100 points over the three events to move into third place with 433 points.

Barrett leads the men's rankings with 608 points and even though he competed in all three events, he only picked up one point in Qatar, eight points in Bahrain, and 20 points in Germany.

Mike Fagan of the United States is second with 564 points, while Australian Jason Belmonte holds down the third spot with 549 points.

The World Bowling Tour is made up of various events around the world and players earn points based on how they finish in each event. The current points system is based on a continuous two-year cycle, so points include some events from 2013 and all events from 2014 combined with the 2015 events.

The next event on the World Bowling Tour schedule is the PBA Summer Swing Oklahoma Open in Shawnee, Okla., from May 9-17. More information can be found at PBA.com.

The United States Bowling Congress Queens, a women's only event, will take place May 13-19 in Green Bay, Wis. For more information, visit BOWL.com/Queens.
