Tournament News

Texas Two Step
Sunday, February 11, 2007

Chris Barnes has had a lot of heartbreak and disappointment on television throughout his career, but all that seems to go away when he bowls in front of his home crowd. Barnes won his eighth career Denny’s PBA Tour title Sunday, his second in the Dallas Metroplex.

Grumpy Old Men
Friday, February 09, 2007

Bill O'Neill didn't have much respect for his elders on Friday, knocking off two bowlers who are a combined 100 years old and own a combined 35 Denny's PBA Tour titles.

Relax
Friday, February 09, 2007

A little relaxation and a change in strategy goes a long way on the Denny's PBA Tour, at least that’s the case for Bill O’Neill in the 2007 GEICO Classic at AMF Irving Lanes.

Third Time a Charm?
Thursday, February 08, 2007

Bill O’Neill is hoping the third time is a charm. The 2005-06 PBA Rookie of the Year led Friday’s first seven-game block in the Round of 64 in the 2007 GEICO Classic at AMF Irving Lanes, marking the third time he has done so this season.

Freaky Friday
Thursday, February 08, 2007

Mike DeVaney knows as much as anyone that all the hard work Thursday isn’t worth a thing if you don’t make it count on Friday. DeVaney led Thursday’s Round of 64 in the 2007 GEICO Classic at AMF Irving Lanes with a 3,001 14-game pinfall to earn the top seed for Friday match play.

Dino Dominating
Wednesday, February 07, 2007

Just four weeks ago, Dino Castillo was 59th in the PBA World Point Rankings, third among non-exempt bowlers. Now the Carrollton, Texas, resident is ranked 36th among all bowlers on the PBA Tour and has opened up what might be an insurmountable lead over the rest of the non-exempt pack.

PBA Spare Shots
Tuesday, February 06, 2007

The Denny's PBA Tour returns to the Dallas area for the first time since the 2004-05 season. Five Dallas-area exempt bowlers will look to win in front of the home crowd along with Commissioner's Exemption John Burkett, a two-time National League All-Star.

John Burkett Awarded Exemption
Monday, February 05, 2007

PBA Commissioner and CEO Fred Schreyer announced today former Major League Baseball All-Star John Burkett has been awarded the Commissioner’s Exemption for the 2007 GEICO Classic, Feb. 7-11, at AMF Irving Lanes in Irving, Texas.
