I did. Some great bowling on very tough condition.

Can't imagine why the PBA would block out all their stand-left-throw-right, 750 rpm "super stars" and let 1960s style strokers  take over the show. (Said with dripping sarcasm)
Andrew (edited) Anderson does have a lot of revs, though, and good deal of accuracy. Nice game.

Kind of surprised that Bill O'Neil didn't make the show; this was right up his alley.

I wonder if Rhino didn't over-prep his side during warm-ups??

Steve Kloempken bowled very well.

I suspect there are no comments online because Belmonte didn't make the show.

I watched it, enjoyed it. I remember Kloempken from the World Team Challenge shows in the 90s.

Nice win by Anderson. This Hoskins kid is tough too, really dug deep in his 1st match, and I thought he was going to strike out for the win.

That was the best display of SHOTMAKING in recent memory.  This should be the standard by which all are judged.  I loved the fact the hi-rev carry guys were closed out.

It's was Andrew Anderson. A real nice kid I've known for 10+ years.

Sorry about that. Corrected.

The Masters should be about shot making and not destroying lanes with 450+ revs And crossing  a ton of boards.  Letís use the golf analogy as always.  The majors are about shot making and not who can hit the ball the farthest. Thank you USBC for bringing back some integrity to a major.

I wouldn't say the high rev rate guys were shut out - it's all about catching the right opponent at the time or inversely, the wrong opponent.  1st round, Belmonte lost to Ciminelli 683-673.  Then in the elim bracket, Belmo won 2 matches going 687 and 736.  Eventually he lost 766-676.

For comparison, Joe Paluszek, who qualified 3rd for the show, won a couple matches with 625 and 609.  Belmo did not have a single series under 673.  Paluszek only had one series over 673...

Long story short - high rev rate guys were not shut out.  A lot of what happens at the Masters is luck of the draw....

And with all that said, I'm happy Paluszek made the show.  I crossed with him at a tournament on Chameleon that he ended up winning, beating TOC champion Matt O'Grady in the process.  He is an excellent bowler who is a PBA east region stalwart.  I'm also happy for Steve Kloempken - excellent performance.  And lastly, Andrew Anderson has an amazing game.  He can pipe it throwing urethane and can get in deep when needed - he is going to be good for a very long time.

Watched it. Great show. Really emphasized shot making. You make the shot, get rewarded. Miss the shot, get penalized.

For me lately, menís bowling is too much like menís golf. I am never going to hit it as far as the men golfers. I am never going to have as many revs nor as much power as the men bowlers. Consequently, I am never going hit it as far nor get as much pin action/carry.

I tend to watch the ladies if I want to see something closer to what I can do and hope to strive for. Itís the best I am ever going to get to.

Are you saying you donít enjoy watching the menís players because of the power they generate? Iím not sure I understand why you have to be able to relate to the menís bowlers or golfers to enjoy watching them. Until they start airing competitive Netflix binging, I canít relate to the athletes in literally any sport.

I enjoy watching the women more as I can relate more. I am never going to throw 550+ revs at 20 mph. I am never going to see the pin action theyíre going to get. Just like Iím never going to hit my 9 iron 180 yds. My two firsts not 325+ ydsdrives both landed on cart paths and rolled. Hell, I have a 400 yd drive. The cart path was on a down slope and edged.

I watch both menís golf and bowling. I enjoy watching both, I just enjoy watching the women more. Probably because I can watch and learn. Again, it relates to what I see when I Bowl.
