THE PBA CLASH IS BY INVITATION ONLY

The Professional Bowlers Association Clash, which will air on FOX on Sunday, Dec. 23 to usher in the PBA’s historic 2019 television agreement with FOX Sports, will be a unique end-of-season “eliminator” event, showcasing the 2018 Go Bowling! PBA Tour’s eight earnings leaders.

The 90-minute telecast will include biographical profiles of the eight Clash players, and it will include the announcements of the 2018 Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year and Harry Golden PBA Rookie of the Year.

 INVITATION SELECTION CRITERIA

 The PBA Clash will showcase eight of the PBA’s premier stars who will qualify for the event based on total earnings in 2018, including prize money yet-to-be-won in the WBT Thailand in Bangkok Sept. 22-28; the FloBowling PBA Fall Swing (including the Wolf Open, Bear Open and Tulsa Open) at The Lanes at Coffee Creek in suburban Tulsa, Okla., Oct. 15-20, and U.S. Open at Northrock Lanes in Wichita, Kan., Oct. 24-31.

FORMAT

The Clash will feature a unique format beginning with all eight players bowling a ninth and 10th frame. Based on total pin fall for the two-frame round, the low score will be eliminated.
 
Starting with the second round, competition will shift to a one-ball, low-man-out format until two survivors remain.
 
The last two survivors will bowl a traditional game to decide the PBA Clash winner-take-all prize is $25,000.
