PRIORITY ENTRY
2018 PBA Tour Point List (.pdf)

The 2018 Priority Entry Point List will be used to determine entry priority . A combined total of 86 spots will be reserved for the top 80 on the 2018 PBA Point List along with any additional National Title holders not in the top 80 up to a maximum of 86 spots. Any unused spots up to 86 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 spots remain.  
         
EXAMPLE:  If 3 National Title holders not in the top 80 on the point list enter the event by deadline, then 83 spots will be awarded via the 2018 PBA Tour Point list for a combined total of 86.
