England's Dom Barrett Earns Top Qualifying Berth For PBA Badger Open Finals

bowlingball.com 6/4/2015

Four-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour titlist Dom Barrett of England averaged 227.6 at FireLake Bowling Center to capture the top qualifying berth for stepladder finals in the PBA Badger Open. Barrett completed qualifying with a 2,732 12-game pinfall total on the 52-foot Badger lane condition, bowling games of 192, 222, 234, 225, 237 and 234 in the final round.

"It feels good to get here because I haven't been bowling well," Barrett said. "I think I over-bowled the past few months and it has taken its toll. I took the month of April off to fix some bad habits and get in better shape and the work seems to be paying off. "In the first two events (of the Summer Swing) I've been bowling good but not great but I just decided to put my head down after the first round today and went for the lead."
