Tournament News

Order Up a Dozen
Saturday, March 22, 2008

Although he was officially eliminated from the 2007-08 PBA Player of the Year race this week, Tommy Jones still showed he’s one of the strongest forces on the Denny’s PBA Tour and will be for years to come.

Down to the Wire
Friday, March 21, 2008

Pete Weber hasn’t had his usual mojo on television this year. In fact, he’s been so off-kilter he’s even considered losing his signature sunglasses. Weber may mix it up Sunday, he may not. Regardless, he needs his magic for just one game to take home his 35th career title.

Weber Leads the Pack
Thursday, March 20, 2008

Pete Weber hasn’t had many breaks go his way this season, but he figures two solid weeks to close out the campaign will salvage what has been, by his standards, a slow season.

PBA Spare Shots
Wednesday, March 19, 2008

This week, Spare Shots looks back at Rhino Page's win in the Go RVing Classic which solidified arguably the greatest rookie season in PBA history. Plus, a look ahead to the final two weeks and the exciting race toward the PBA Player of the Year award and 2008-09 exemptions.

Mahr-velous
Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Jason Mahr got the two most difficult tasks of his week accomplished Tuesday and Wednesday. He figures the rest of his week should be easy in comparison. A night after proposing to his girlfriend at a New York Rangers game Mahr led Wednesday’s Denny’s PBA Tour Qualifying Round.
