After a long anticipated wait to begin the 2019 season on the Dynasty Bowling Tour, we have the first champion of the 2019 season.
On January 20th 2019 the Dynasty Bowling Tour hosted the first event of the season at Brunswick Harbour Lanes located in Melbourne Florida. The 40 lane center is overseen by general manager Zachary Wiegers with impressive results.
The event was setup and checkins began at 10am. The field commenced practice at 11am sharp.
After 8 games of qualifying on the medium pace semi demanding “Dynasty Bowling Tour Stealth 41|26” Pattern the field was cut down to the top 4, they would move onto the bracket finals to determine the 1st Dynasty Bowling Tour champion of 2019
The top 4 consisted of Anthony Caso, Shawn Naumann, Brian Tinsley, and John Donovan. Shawn Naumann led the first 7 games of qualifying. Anthony Caso shot 258 for the 8th game of qualifying to secure TOP seed for qualifying.
During the bracket finals. Shawn Naumann defeated Brian Tinsley to secure a spot in the final match. John Donovan needed a strike in the 2nd ball of the 10th to gain the second seed, stoned a 7 pin. He needed to make the 7pin to tie Caso. He made it. Anthony Caso and John Donovan both shot 233 to go into a single frame roll off to determine the second seed. Top seed in qualifying Anthony Caso chose to bowl first on the right lane. His first shot was high as he left the “Big Four” John Donovan capitalizes the 2nd seed knocking down 9pins.
John Donovan and Shawn Naumann dueled it out for the final match. Naumann looked solid threw the first 4 frames as Donovan was struggling. After a big ball change, John Donovan starts stringing strikes. His efforts were noticed, however it wasn’t enough to capitalize on the win. Shawn Naumann came out on top shooting a 221 to Donovan’s 211 in the final match!
