PBA Players To Compete In China This Week

Seven of the top-performing players on the FloBowling PBA Summer Tour are off to China this week to compete in the PBA China Tiger Cup.

Sean Rash, Jason Sterner, AJ Johnson, Bill O’Neill, Kyle Sherman, Tommy Jones and Kyle Troup will take on bowlers from China, Korea, Japan and other Asian countries for the $20,000 top prize. No PBA Tour title will be on the line.

The event will take place at the Suzhou Tiger Bowling Center in Suzhou, China, and begins with qualifying Wednesday and concludes with the finals and special team event Thursday.

There were originally supposed to be eight PBA Tour players making the trip, but the PBA reported last week that EJ Tackett was forced to cancel his trip after a delay in obtaining a visa. Due to time constraints, his spot was not filled.

Anthony Simonsen had qualified to compete in the event but was unable to make the trip due to a schedule conflict, so Troup took his spot.

The PBA China Tiger Cup, the last event of the 2019 season, is the first PBA competition held in mainland China.

“The PBA China Tiger Cup is another major step forward as the PBA continues its efforts to grow the sport around the world, and especially in China’s rapidly growing bowling market,” PBA Commissioner Tom Clark said when the event was announced last December. “The China Cup joins the creation of the PBA World Series of Bowling 10 years ago, a partnership with World Bowling on the World Bowling Tour and forming PBA Japan as examples of the PBA working to expose the sport at its highest level to as many people as possible.”
