CHICAGO (Sept. 25, 2019) – The end-of-season PBA Clash field of the eight leading PBA players based on Go Bowling! PBA Tour earnings for 2019 is set in the aftermath of Saturday’s FloBowling PBA ATX Invite where Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, locked up Norm Duke’s berth in the Clash.

Duke, who didn’t qualify to participate in the ATX Invite, qualified for the Clash with $97,415 while Sherman, who earned $3,750 as a first-round loser in the final event of the FloBowling PBA Summer Tour, finished the Clash qualifying period with $85,965.

 

The second PBA Clash will be contested on Monday, Oct. 21, at Kegel Training Center in Lake Wales, Florida, for airing on FOX on Sunday, Nov. 3. Marshall Kent, who won the inaugural PBA Clash, didn’t qualify for this year’s event. The following players (with their 2019 earnings totals) will compete for the $50,000 first prize in the Clash:

            1, Jason Belmonte, Australia, $275,290.

ClutchPressReleasePhoto.jpg

Lake Wales, FL – 7/16/18:  Specto Bowling and Clutch Bowling have agreed to offer exclusive features and graphic integration to users who own both Specto and Clutch Bowling systems.

The teams at Clutch and Specto have worked together to develop special features which will be exclusive to people who own both systems.  These features will enhance both systems offering more entertainment options as well as games that will improve bowling skill.
