As a reminder to players 50 years of age and older, the PBA50 Tour begins its western swing with the first major and only stop in Las Vegas when the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open presented by Storm gets underway May 31-June 5 at the Suncoast Bowling Center.
The second PBA50 major of 2015 will be the USBC Senior Masters at The Ashwaubenon Bowl in Green Bay, Wis., July 27-Aug. 1.
The Senior U.S. Open is the most prestigious of all PBA “senior tour” events and features a challenging format contested on challenging lane conditions. Reigning PBA50 Player of the Year Norm Duke is defending champion. “Bonus” competition points earned in the Senior U.S. Open, as well as standard points earned in two additional “western swing” events to follow, will play a key role in determining the eight players who will qualify for the PBA50 Challenge and paid entries into the PBA World Series of Bowling VII later in the year.
Following the PBA Senior U.S. Open will be the PBA50 Fountain Valley Open presented by Track at Fountain Bowl in Fountain Valley, Calif., June 7-10, and the PBA50 Northern California Classic presented by MOTIV in Brentwood, Calif., June 14-17. The events will be a mix of the traditional round-robin format and new final-day format with guaranteed PBA60 (super senior) cashers at each event.
Entries are being accepted on a first come, first serve basis. You can enter online at pba.com or through Mary von Krueger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 332-9688.
