Petersen Classic Info

This tournament will be contested on the same lanes and conditions being used for the Petersen Classic tournament at Bowlero Wauwatosa. Lane conditions will be similar to what is used in the actual Petersen Classic but will not be exactly the same. PBA Members who compete in the PBA Midwest Petersen Classic Regional are still eligible to bowl the actual Petersen Classic event.

Balance Holes

Beginning August 1, 2020, the use of a balance hole is prohibited. The rule states all holes in a bowling ball must be used on every delivery; any hole not used is considered a balance hole, making the ball illegal. Bowlers who do not use their thumb no longer can have a thumb hole, as it now is considered a balance hole. They also need to mark their ball to show where they place their palm on delivery.
