Sherman, Butturff Lead PBA Summer Tour Points After Two Events

There's a lot on the line this summer as the special FloBowling PBA Summer Tour points list will determine cash prizes in the USBC Cup, spots in the FloBowling ATX Invite and qualifiers for the PBA China Tiger Cup. 

Kyle Sherman and Jakob Butturff lead the points list after each winning an event. Sherman won the PBA/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles over the weekend, while Butturff won the summer-opening PBA Lubbock Sports Shootout.

The top eight players in points will earn spots in the FloBowling ATX Invite, a special event to be held in Austin, Texas, on Sept. 21. Those eight will also earn spots in the PBA China Tiger Cup, an event that will be held in November. The top five will cash in the special USBC Cup prize list.
