Priority Entries

Priority entries open January 15, 2022 at 10 a.m. CT. Priority entries close March 4, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. CT.

Entry priority will be given in the following order, provided the top 50 2021 PBA Tour point leaders and PBA Tour champions, regardless of status, have entered by March 4. 66 spots are being held for priority entrants. After March 4 any remaining spots will go to the PTQ.

  • The top 50 2021 PBA Tour point leaders
  • PBA Tour title holders

PTQ Entries

PTQ entries open January 15, 2022 at 10 a.m. CT. PTQ entries close March 4, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. CT. All PBA members who are not currently classified as priority entrants will need to enter the PTQ. A minimum of six players will advance to the elite field, with a maximum number to be determined to fill the elite field of 72.

Example: If 50 point leaders and two more PBA Tour champions not in the top 50 2021 PBA Tour point leaders enter as priority entrants, 20 would advance from the PTQ, which would fill the elite field at 72.
