This 10 Pin Refused To Fall For Marshall Kent

Better or worse than a solid 10 pin?

Thoughts? During qualifying at the 2019 PBA Bowlerstore Classic, Marshall Kent watched as the 10 pin absolutely refused to fall on a pocket shot.

For all Junior Bowlers!

Bill O'Neill likes the variety of winners we've had this year! If you missed him on the FloBowling podcast, check it out: | #PBA #GoBowling

"All you have to do is look at the people who have won this year, and have had success. It is a wide range of skill sets.

"You have Belmo. You have Butturff. You have Rhino who made (several) shows this year. Dick Allen won twice. Kris Prather won twice. I won twice. Norm Duke won twice. There's nothing similar about any of those games of the guys that I mentioned.

"So it's not like there was 6 different two-handers that have won all the events.

"There are people sprinkled from all types of styles and ball companies.

"People may want to paint it like there wasn't variety, but there was.

"We bowled on dual patterns, we bowled on short and a long. We had the World Series where ... we had a short pattern where people were using urethane and then we had a pattern at the end where we were standing left and spinning it to five, hooking the whole lane.

"There was variety this year. The idea that there wasn't, I think is misguided."
