As qualifiers and matches have taken place at Bowlero Centerville in Centerville, Virginia, the finals change location and will be played in the private lanes of Bill Moore, whose father is the namesake of the event.
Moore has a pair of lanes in his basement, setting up what will be one of the most unique PBA50 Finals in history.
âIt’s funny because I jokingly said at a PBA tournament in 2019, we should have a stepladder final in my basement, and people laughed,â Moore said. âLast year I spoke to (PBA Tournament Director) John Weber. He went through all the ranks. They thought it would be a great idea to have the tournament in Centerville and the TV finals in my basement. It would be something they have never done before. “
Marsala won the seed for the final with a 5-3 record and a total of 5,426 after 22 games, averaging 239.82.
Boresch makes another final appearance this season as he seeks his first win of the year. He went 5-3 in match play and finished with a total of 5,378.
Angelo continues to enjoy success in his rookie PBA50 season as he put on another show, finishing with 5336 after posting a 4-4 match-play record.
In the opening step stool, Knowlton will face Sacks. Knowlton won fourth place with a 6-2 record and a 5,309 total. Sacks, meanwhile, narrowly made the show with 5,281 and a 5-3 record.
