The Tournament of Champions finals Sunday at 1 p.m. Eastern is part of a PBA-ESPN tripleheader weekend.
The finals of the PBA Players Championship will be held Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Woodland Bowl in Indianapolis, for telecast on ESPN on Sunday, Feb. 22, at 1 p.m. Eastern.
The finalists, determined during a qualifying event earlier in the month in Milwaukee, will be top qualifier Parker Bohn, a PBA Hall of Famer and 33-time title winner; two-time PBA Tour titlist Ronnie Russell; the red-hot Jason Belmonte; PBA Hall of Famer and 37-time winner Norm Duke, and one-time titlist Tom Daugherty.
At 4:30 p.m. Sunday, following the live TOC finals, the Mark Roth/Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship will be contested for telecast on Sunday, March 1, at 1 p.m. Eastern.
The Baker-format doubles finals — in which players will bowl alternate frames — will include top qualifiers Duke and Wes Malott, the defending champions; Dino Castillo and Daugherty; Belmonte and Bill O’Neill; D.J. Archer and Shawn Maldonado; and England’s Dom Barrett and Finland’s Osku Palermaa.
Among the 10 finalists, Castillo and Maldonado are the only players who have not won a PBA Tour title.
