PBA Clash Airs Sunday On FOX, FloBowling

LAKE WALES, Fla. – As the 2019 PBA Tour season heads toward the finish line, the top eight PBA money earners through the FloBowling ATX Invite will battle at the PBA Clash.

The special event, which was held for the second consecutive year, was recorded Oct. 21 at the Kegel Training Center and will be broadcast on FOX and FloBowling this Sunday.

In the United States, the event will air on FOX with part of the country seeing the show at 2:30 p.m. Eastern, while some will see it at 4:30 p.m. Eastern. International viewers can watch on FloBowling at 2:30 p.m. Eastern.

The winner-take-all prize of $50,000, which was doubled from $25,000 after Bowlero Corp bought the PBA recently, will feature a star-studded field.

This year’s competition includes the top eight overall PBA earners through Sept. 21. Jason Belmonte, Jakob Butturff, Bill O’Neill, Kris Prather, EJ Tackett, Anthony Simonsen, Sean Rash and Norm Duke are on the show.

The PBA Clash features a unique format. All eight bowlers will start by rolling a 10th frame with the low score eliminated. Seven players will advance to the second round where they will compete in a one-ball low-man-out format until two bowlers remain. In the championship match, the players will bowl a full game.

“Honestly, I think this format is tougher than most,” said Butturff, who won his first major this season at the USBC Masters in Las Vegas. “When we are throwing one shot you can get five and you’re out like that. So I would say it is definitely a little bit of pressure.”

The bowlers competed on two different oil patterns. The Billy Hardwick 44-foot pattern on the left lane and the Johnny Petraglia 37-foot pattern on the right lane.

Belmonte, Butturff, Tackett and Simonsen all qualified to compete in last year’s inaugural PBA Clash. Marshall Kent won that event.
