PRIORITY ENTRY

2018 PBA Tour Point List (.pdf)

The 2018 Priority Entry Point List along with all PBA National Title Holders not in the top 80 will be used to determine entry priority.  A combined estimated total of 86 spots will be reserved for all PBA National Title holders and the top point earners on the 2018 PBA Point List.   Any unused National Tour Title Holder spots will be added to the number of entries made available via the point list.  If the total number of priority entries exceed 86, spots will be deducted from estimated available PTQ spots until 3 PTQ spot remains.  
         

PRIORITY ENTRY DEADLINE

At 20:01a Central Time on Friday, December 2, 2018, confirmed standby entrants will be confirmed into the tournament in the order their entry was received (date/time of entry).  In the event the tournament fills, those entrants not confirmed on December 2nd will automatically be placed into the PTQ.

At 11:59p Central Time on Monday, December 31, 2018, if the combined number of tournament entrants (priority entrants + PTQ) is less than or equal to 96, the PTQ will be canceled and all PTQ bowlers will be confirmed into the main tournament field.
         
NOTE:  Any doubles team member who has not been confirmed into the event on December 31st, must bowl the PTQ.  If the entrant fails to advance out of the PTQ, then the doubles teammate must then pick a new partner from the pool of available bowlers who advanced but have not yet committed to doubles.
