Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go through a PWBA Tournament? Six-time Team USA Member, PBA and PWBA Champion Kelly Kulick will walk you through every moment of the experience while competing at the PWBA Minnesota Open.
USBC’s Gold Coach and Director of Coaching Stephen Padilla teams up with Kulick to evaluate every consideration that goes into the second qualifying six-game block (Games 7 -12).
Kelly continues to compete against 57 other women in the field and will be bowling with seven other ladies on different pairs throughout this block. With the goal of advancing to match play, Kulick will have to be in the top 16 to make the cut after two rounds of qualifying.
After the completion of the first block, players have an hour to get lunch while lane machines put fresh oil down.
The players have another ten minutes of practice to see how this quick turn affects lane play.
Kulick knows where she is in the standings after completing the first six games and discuses with Padilla how this affects her approach to the upcoming games and the need to make the cut to move onto match play.
Our cameras continue to cover each and every frame displaying Kulick’s scores and showing her race to stay above the cut line in real-time.
Moves on the approach and down the lane are discussed, giving you intimate knowledge from an elite player’s perspective on how and why she does what she does.
Kulick and Padilla dive into ball changes and show viewers how different balls react on the lane through a split screen throughout the block.
These events make for long days and Kulick provides additional tips on diet, nutrition, exercise and stretching that enables her to stay at her best throughout the day.
At the end of the block, we’ll recap where Kulick started on the fresh and with which ball. Then we’ll detail each ball change and adjustment overlaying them on one screen to show you how much an elite bowler moves throughout a given block.
