    Default Two-hander Schaub Leads PBA Pepsi Red, White and Blue Open

    Two-hander Schaub Leads PBA Pepsi Red, White and Blue Open
    Wichita, Kan - 12/8/2009

    Cassidy Schaub, a two-handed bowler who throws the ball from the left side, averaged 258.7 Tuesday to take the first round lead in the Lumber Liquidators PBA Pepsi Red, White and Blue Open at Northrock Lanes.

    Schaub, a 26-year-old first-year Professional Bowlers Association member from Polk, Ohio, finished the first eight qualifying games on the United States Bowling Congress’ “Red” lane conditioning pattern, with a total of 2,070 pins and a 27-pin lead over 15-time PBA Tour titlist Jason Couch of Clermont, Fla. Couch had 2,043 pins.

    Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., was third with a 2,019 total followed by Chicago’s Billy Oatman at 2,012 and Ryan Ciminelli of Cheektowaga, N.Y., with a 1,991 total.

    Schaub is the lesser-known of the PBA’s two touring two-handed players. Australia’s Jason Belmonte, who used his unique two-handed delivery from the right side to win a PBA Tour title last season, remained home in Australia this week, awaiting the birth of his first child. That left Schaub to deliver the two-handed message and the two-time Team USA member did it in style, easily conquering the first of three “test” lane oiling patterns being used in the tournament.

    “It’s always fun to strike,” Schaub said. “I caught a couple of breaks, but all in all, I threw the ball pretty good. But it’s only eight games. I won a sprint in a marathon.”

    It was still a relief after a miserable professional debut in the PBA’s inaugural World Series of Bowling in Detroit in August. In his five-week, seven-event PBA debut, Schaub’s best finish was 35th place.

    “That was pretty bad,” he confessed. “I learned you have to take shots one at a time. I beat myself up after every shot I threw in Detroit. Later in the World Series, I talked with Rhino Page and Patrick Allen (two of the PBA’s premier left-handers). They told me some things about my physical game I needed to work on. I went home and worked on what they suggested, and I came in here with a different attitude and a different mental game.”

    Couch, who is trying for his first title in more than two years, was philosophical about his performance.

    “Everyone knew the scoring conditions were going to be easier than what we’re used to,” he said. “Some guys like it, some guys don’t, but I like this pace for once a year. I get a lot of questions about lane conditions when I go home. I think an event like this answers a lot of questions league bowlers have about the differences between league and professional bowling conditions.

    “I came in with a good game plan,” Couch added. “I knew what balls I wanted to use during the transition and it worked well for me. I had a plan and I stuck with it.”

    The Pepsi Red, White and Blue Open, presented by the USBC, is being conducted on three “test” lane conditioning patterns the USBC plans to introduce to American league bowlers for the 2010-11 winter league season. The Red condition is the most forgiving pattern, with White condition a medium challenge and the Blue pattern the most challenging. The varying degrees of difficulty is intended to help bowlers who would like to advance to the PBA Experience Sport Bowling program, USBC’s most challenging scoring environment, where they will learn more about the sport and how to improve their skills.

    All bowlers in Wichita will bowl eight more qualifying games Wednesday with the top 39 advancing to a third eight-game qualifying round on the Blue pattern Thursday morning. The top 24 players after 24 games will advance to three eight-game, round-robin match play rounds on the Red, White and Blue patterns, respectively, Thursday and Friday. The top six will then advance to the championship round which will be taped Sunday to air on ESPN on Sunday, Jan. 10.
