PBA Xtra



decide whether you’re going to be active the rest of the year really just puts so much more pressure on each individual ball. There’s an awful lot riding on it, and if you get off to a bad start, how your mind handles it can be key.” But as nearly any player who has hit

the road for the WSOB with equipment and dreams in tow can tell you, how the PBA handles the lanes at South Point can be just as key as how a player’s mind handles all that pressure. This year’s World Series, then, features several changes in response to those concerns. “We actually are bowling one less game in qualifying each day,” Clark explains. “We’re bowling seven instead of eight this year. We also took the Shark out of play due to the high friction surface there, which was really forcing

righties as far left as possible by the end, and moved the Cheetah back in, which kind of makes people stay outside. So there are a lot of strategies we can use to address all that.”

But if those changes fail to quiet

Clark’s critics, he can count on the inaugural PBA50 Tour finals to make him look like a genius. That show will feature a showdown between the top three points earners from the 2013 PBA50 Tour season. Those players— Walter Ray Williams, Amleto Monacelli and Pete Weber—possess 103 PBA Tour titles between them. “When you look at who made the

show, you would think that we were brilliant,” Clark jokes. “There is no bowler on the planet who wouldn’t want to watch that. So we’ll be able to spotlight how great the PBA50 Tour is.”
