Bowlmor AMF U.S. Open Has Rolled into Texas
4 Nov, 2015
The Bowlmor AMF U.S. Open will take place at AMF Garland Lanes in Garland, Texas, now through Nov. 8.
The televised finals are set for Sunday, Nov. 8 at 1 p.m. Eastern on the CBS Sports Network, and the winner will take home a top prize of $50,000. All qualifying and match-play rounds will be broadcast live on Xtra Frame.
Changes for the 2015 U.S. Open include not revealing the oil pattern until just before the official practice session Monday and only oiling the lanes once per day during competition. Each block of qualifying will include eight games, and there will be three squads of bowlers, who will bowl one block at each squad time during the week.
Bowling fans can watch their favorite players compete in person or live on the PBA's Xtra Frame, starting with the first round of qualifying Tuesday at 8 a.m. Central/9 a.m. Eastern.
All competitors at the 2015 U.S. Open will bowl 24 qualifying games over three days, before the field is cut to the top third for eight additional games. The 32-game pinfall totals will determine the 24 players for the round-robin match-play portion of the tournament, after which, the top five will advance to the stepladder finals based on their 56-game totals.
Bowlmor AMF, the largest operator of bowling centers in the world, committed to hosting and providing television sponsorship of more than $250,000 for the U.S. Open and U.S. Women's Open, which USBC Hall Famer Liz Johnson won at Brunswick Zone Carolier in North Brunswick, New Jersey, in September.
