Live coverage of the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) World Series of Bowling competition on Xtra Frame revs up Monday with qualifying rounds for the Carmen Salvino Classic. The six-game Round of 16, which will decide the four ESPN finalists, will dominate pba.com’s online bowling channel Monday evening, starting at 8 p.m. PT.
Pepsi PBA Elite Players Championship six-game qualifying rounds (also airing on Xtra Frame) are set for 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. PT on Tuesday. Those 12 games, combined with the first 12 games from the Salvino Classic, will determine the top 32 who will bowl a fifth six-game qualifying round Wednesday at 9 a.m.
After 30 games, things really get interesting. Not only will the Elite Players field be cut to the top 16, but those 16 players also will become the field for the new Lumber Liquidators Mark Roth-Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship. Teams will be decided during a draft whereby the top qualifier will be first to select a partner. The No. 2 qualifier will then select his partner and so on until all eight teams are determined.
