Wilmington, Del. – Jacob Butturff of Tempe, Ariz., compiled an 7-1 match play record and a 15-game total of 3,479 pins to score a 68-pin victory over Jake Rollins of Gen Rock, N.J. in the PBA Bowlero Wilmington Open on Sunday.
Butturff, who normally competes in the PBA West Region, is competing in the PBA Tour Fall Swing events currently being run in Centreville, Va. He took advantage of an off day to bowl in his first East Region event. He qualified fourth, then won his first four games in match play to take over the lead throughout the remainder of the event. Rollins took advantage of a 258 game in the position round match to catapult into 2nd place, his best career finish.
The win was the 23rd in Butturff’s five-year career and earned him $2,500. Rollins earned $1,275 as the runner up while qualifying leader Matt O’Grady of Rahway, N.J. finished third and pocketed $1,150. PBA Tour champion Francois Lavoie of Canada finished fourth and earned $1,000.
The next event on the PBA East Region schedule is the PBA50 Timber Lanes Open in Oxford, Pa. on October 16-18. This event is open to bowlers aged 50 and above. The next full-field event is at AMF Strathmore Lanes in Aberdeen, N.J. on October 24.
