Belmonte Doubles World Championship Lead

Jason Belmonte doubled his lead on the field Friday in the first round of cashers qualifying at the 2019 PBA World Championship.

Leading by just over 100 pins heading into the day, Belmonte extended his lead to 205 pins after 35 games with a total pinfall of 8,076, a 230.74 average, at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Michigan.

Belmonte has been surging ever since missing his first cut of the season at the PBA Cheetah Championship in the opening event of the 2019 PBA World Series of Bowling.
