LAS VEGAS – The USBC Open Championships is one of the biggest tournaments of the season for most league bowlers.

To help you be better prepared for the challenge, FloBowling talked exclusively with PBA bowlers Sean Rash and Tom Daugherty to get their thoughts on this year’s lane conditions at the South Point Bowling Plaza.

Sean Rash’s advice

Rash put together one of the most impressive individual performances of the tournament early on last month when he shot 2,151 all-events for nine games. That’s a 239 average.

In team event, Rash shot 212, 246 and 227 for a 685 series. He followed that up with 238, 224 and 212 in doubles for 674 and then fired 276, 279 and 237 for 792 in singles.

Rash said he used the same bowling ball all nine games – a Brunswick Tenacity Grit – and in the video below he explains how he played the lanes and gives his advice for success.

Tom Daugherty’s advice

Overall, Daugherty put together some strong numbers at the USBC Open this year, although he did struggle in stretches. He finished with 1,988 all-events.

In team event, he shot 211, 246 and 185 for a 642 series. His best event was doubles where he shot 257, 257 and 215 for a 729 series. He shot 170, 214 and 233 in singles.

In the video below, Daugherty explains the mistake he made and why he gave away a lot of pins this year. He also talks about what part of the lane he played in and gives his advice to fellow competitors.
