Forty-nine year-old Loch Sheldrake bowler Jaryl “J Smooth” Scott has taken an outstanding bowling career from the former Kiamesha Lanes to Port Jervis Bowl where he added his 22nd career 300 game on January 28 in the Friday Night Minisink Memorial league.
Bowling for more than 30 years, Jaryl honed his bowling skills and knowledge of the game at the former Kiamesha Lanes but now proudly calls Port Jervis Bowl his favorite bowling house, “where if there is a lane malfunction it’s fixed in minutes.”
With the almost perfect 300 game on lanes 11 and 12, Jaryl noted the first ball in the first frame, "was a Brooklyn shot and the last 11 strikes were in the pocket."
The 300 game and 727 series (300, 194, 233) were bowled with a Roto Grip Idol Helios bowling ball.
Jaryl bowls in this league with the Bad Boyz team with teammates Gary Kinne, Otto Banghart and Kevin “Anka” Scott. The team presently holds down first place with a 70.7 winning percentage.
Scott presently also bowls at the Port Jervis Bowl with the Fugawees team in the Monday Mixed League with teammates Carena Collura, Vinnie Collura and Pedro Agapito III.
He maintains a 216 average in the Monday league and a 222 in the Friday Minisink Memorial league.
Jaryl also has recorded five 800 plus series.
He is single with four children, Jeremiah, Elijah, Braeden and Juliana.
Scott is employed with the Rolling V Bus Corp. in South Fallsburg.
Jason Belmonte is once again champion of the 2022 BA Players Championship.
The two-handed Aussie, with the first major title of the season and $100,000 on the line, won the championship over top seed Sean Rash 210-202.
It was not the cleanest match with both players struggling on the left lane and the dual-pattern conditions.
Belmonte is now a three-time winner of the PBA Players Championship, and he has 26 career PBA Tour titles.
“That was probably one of my more nervous TV shows," Belmonte said. “He gave me an opening and I was able to take advantage of it.”
The second major of the 2022 Guaranteed Rate PBA tour, the U.S. Open will be held this Sunday (February 6) for the finals live on FS1 at 5 p.m. EST. at Royal Pin Woodland.
Bowling Tip by Mike Luongo
Why are we seeing a resurgence of urethane bowling balls?
Over the last few years we have started to see a resurgence of urethane bowling balls in all types of league and professional bowling competition.
Credit the Storm Bowling Ball Company with their introduction to the sport of bowling with the "Storm Natural." Storm created this ball and it began lapping the field. Soon, other manufacturers started introducing their brand of urethane bowling balls.
This, arguably, started the urethane craze in the U.S.
Nowadays, if you don't have at least one urethane ball in your bowling bag, you're likely making a mistake.
But, the question is why?
Why, all of a sudden, with all of these incredible bowling balls on the market, has an outdated technology become a staple in many bowling bags?
Bowling ball manufactures with many requests from pro shop operators made the decision to bring back urethane because of the emergence of tougher lane patterns, which require a more controlled, predictable ball motion.
The reactive bowling balls are continuing to be made stronger than the last one, and they can be unpredictable on tougher lane patterns if you can't easily manipulate your ball roll.
The third factor is that rev rates are at an all-time high, particularly with the evolution of the two-handed style of bowling.
So our tip this week is very simple. If you’re having a control problem with your present bowling ball, talk to your pro shop manager about what a urethane bowling ball can do for your game.
