As 2022 wraps up, the regional tour does as well with just four regional stops in the past couple of weeks. The RPI field has been finalized, but some are still putting the finishing touches on their season with hopes of an end-of-season award.

PBA Monroe Sport Center Central Challenge (One Day/Non-Champions Event)


Monroe, Mich. hosted the final non-champions event of the season, where 55 bowlers came to play. Justin O’Shaughnessy qualified for the one-seed by just two pins and earned a bye for his efforts.

PBA East Providence Lanes/StrikeFX Open 

Almost 100 bowlers arrived at East Providence Lanes to bowl on the Earl Anthony pattern, and Stephen Major began on top at +325 for eight games. After 32 bowlers made the first cut, the field continued to dwindle after more advancer rounds. After 17 games, four bowlers moved onto the stepladder.

In a crazy stepladder, Jason Sterner advanced to the next round via roll-off after a 238-238 tie, and Peter Fox then moved on via roll-off after a 201-201 game. In the end, Peter Fox defeated the top-seed Tim Foy, Jr. 268-237 for his first career regional title.
