GEICO PBA Team Shootout Sunday

Bowling fans will be treated to three and half hours of televised bowling Sunday when seven matches
of the GEICO
Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Team Shootout Hosted by Six Flags will
be aired on ESPN beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern.

Team GEICO, with Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour stars Chris Barnes, Patrick Allen, Mike Wolfe, Mika
Koivuniemi, reigning Player of the
Year Wes Malott and Brad Angelo, has taken a 2-1 lead after four
matches in the made-for-TV team tournament.

Conducted outdoors on specially-constructed lanes at New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure
theme park, three of the best teams ever assembled compete in a
Baker Scoring System format which
requires five members of the team to roll two
frames in one game combining for one score.

Trailing Team GEICO, is Team Bayer (Tommy Jones, Jason Belmonte, Sean Rash, Rhino Page,
Michael Fagan and Bill O’Neill) with a 1-1 record and Team Lumber
Liquidators (Norm Duke, Mike
Scroggins, Pete Weber, Steve Jaros, Parker Bohn III
and Walter Ray Williams Jr.) at 1-2.

All three teams bowl in round-robin match play on a variety of lane conditioning patterns leading up
to a championship round. The top two teams based on match
play record will advance to a
championship contest that includes singles,
doubles and Baker-style team matches. The championship
round will air on ESPN on
Sunday, July 12.
