Still riding on the back of his victory at the PBA Lubbock Sports Shootout, Jakob Butturff remains on top of the FloBowling PBA Summer Tour points list after three events with 3,095 points.

Kyle Sherman, who won the PBA/PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles with partner Amanda Greene, is in second place with 2,935 points.

AJ Johnson is third with 2,870 points, while PBA Chesapeake Open winner Bill O'Neill moves up to fourth with 2,865 points. AJ Chapman, Kris Prather, EJ Tackett and Stu Williams round out the top eight.

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.

The PBA Tour next heads to Wilmington, North Carolina, for the PBA Wilmington Open, where the race to collect the 2,500 first-place points begins Tuesday at 9 a.m. Eastern live on FloBowling.
