W. Babylon, NY:  Hwanchul Park, a 44 year old marketing director from Fresh Meadows, NY, won his first LIGBT title by defeating Darryl Freeman, Forest Hills, NY, 285-260 at AMF Babylon. Hwanchul earned $1,000 for his victory while Darryl earned $500. Rounding out the top 4 was third place finisher George Williams, Briarwood, NY with a 251 worth $300, and fourth was James Russo, Bronx, NY with a 221 worth $250.

The final 4 shootout got off to a hot start as 3 out of the 4 bowlers had doubles by the third frame. Hwanchul took control of the match by throwing 7 strikes in his first 8 frames. James Russo couldn’t knock down a 10 pin and had to settle for fourth place. Darryl bowled well but a missed one pin spare in the 4th frame hurt his title aspirations. George, who was getting the most handicap, couldn’t strike late and settled for third place.   

The AMF Babylon event drew a great crowd of 150 entries (plus 24 desperados), advanced 29 bowlers to the finals and paid out $5,410. The house shot pattern created senior cut scores of; 735, 737, & 720 and 49 & under cut scores of 730, 761, & 730.

JOE KINGSTON WINS THE RACE ON THE AUTOBAHN!

Posted On: May 21, 2018

Garden City, NY:  Joe Kingston, a 30 year old electrician from Ronkonkoma, NY won the $1,000 top prize at LIGBT’s sport shot event hosted at AMF Garden City. Joe earned his third LIGBT title by defeating 2 bowlers who tied for second; Dianna Slaughter, Hempstead, NY and Pak Wong, New York, NY 238-218 in the final match.  While Dianna and Pak each earned $450,  fourth place was taken by John Sandano, Brooklyn, NY with a 187 earning him $300.

Scoring was low all day due to the tough “Autobahn” pattern. The key in the final shootout was to stay clean. Even though Joe was giving everyone handicap, as much as 49 pins, he was the only bowler not to have an open frame. Both Dianna and Pak could have won the title if they doubled in the 10th forcing Joe to mark. But when Joe came up in the final frame all he needed was a 9 count on his first ball to secure the title. 

The AMF Garden City event drew a nice crowd of 101 entries, advanced 18 bowlers to the finals and paid out $4,200. The cut scores on the “Autobahn” pattern were low; 701 & 704 for the lower average division and 657 & 695 for the higher average division. High series of the tournament was shot by Curtis Hetmeyer, Brooklyn, NY with a 782 in the 3pm squad. The wildcard bonuses were won by Pak Wong with a 1385 from the lower average division and Jason Nicholas, Wantagh, NY, from the higher average division with a 1302.   

LIGBT’s next tournament is a special 3-squad house shot tournament at AMF Babylon featuring a $60 entry fee on Sunday, May 27th. Top prizes will pay $1,000 & $500 and there will be 2 age divisions.  To view the final results of the AMF Garden City event please visit www.ligbtour.com.

GARY PAULSEN WINS LIGBT SWEEPER

Posted On: May 12, 2018

Wantagh, NY:  Gary Paulsen, a semi-retired senior bowler from Massapequa, NY, won the $1,000 top prize at LIGBT’s inaugural 4-game sweeper at AMF Wantagh. Gary’s third LIGBT title was accomplished when he defeated Scott Kampf, Levittown, NY 252-235 in the final shootout. While Scott earned $500 for second, Henry Van Engel, Bayside, NY took third with a 185 earning $300. Rounding out the top 4 was Joe LaBargo, Bayside, NY, with a 183 worth $250.

The final 4 shootout was really a 2 man race by the squad leaders Gary (senior division) and Scott (49 & under division). Gary was dealing with a very painful pulled back muscle which caused him to bowl very tentatively. This may have helped him as he had the least open frames, despite having the lowest average in the shootout, than the other finalists. The match came down to the last frame where if Gary marked he would close out Scott. Gary easily converted a one pin spare to secure the match and his third title.

The AMF Wantagh event drew a Friday night crowd of 48 entries, advanced 8 bowlers to the finals and paid out $2,490. The cut scores on the house shot were 956 for the 49 & under group and 1002 for the senior division. High series of the tournament was shot by Scott Kampf with a 1067. 

LIGBT’s next tournament is a 2-squad sport shot event at AMF Garden City on Sunday, May 20th. Top prizes will pay $1,000 & $500 with 1 in 6 per division each squad advancing to the finals.
