USBC National Tournament

Roto Grip Staff Member Leads All Events and Doubles at United States Bowling Congress (USBC) National Championships. Ron Nelson Jr., a Roto Grip staff member had his best showing ever at the USBC tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nelson put together sets of 669 in team, 674 in singles, and 795 in doubles which included a 300 game. Nelson, and partner Bryan O'Keefe took the lead in the doubles portion of the tournament by 49 pins. "We have led the doubles before," commented Nelson, "but the best we have ever finished is 8th."

Along with leading the doubles Nelson leads the all events with a 2138, 15 pins better than the previous leader. "I started the team event using the Rogue Cell." he commented, "It was just a little too flippy on the back. I switched to an original Cell that was drilled by Ernest Goedicke, Storm's Technical Director, and it was a striking machine." I started playing about 15 and then just chased it in." he commented when asked what part of the lane he was playing.

This was Nelson's best showing at bowling's premier event. His previous best was 2030 All Events.
