Sam Capizzi wins his first Rochester Masters title!

Sam Capizzi Jr. defeated Mike Rose Jr., 208-174, to win the 35th annual Rochester NY USBC Masters Championship Tournament at AMF Empire Lanes in Webster on Sunday, December 2. Capizzi, who was the runner-up at Empire last year, atoned for that loss by besting the event's most prolific champion. Capizzi will earn $1,000, a crystal pin, a champion's ring and an entry into the 2019 NY State Masters. Rose, who owns a record four Rochester Masters titles, led Saturday's 6-game qualifier with a pinfall of 1358 (226.3 average) which included a 300 game. Rose led nearly all day on Sunday during the head-to-head match-play finals. That was until Capizzi caught him in the 12th and final match, the position round, where the eventual finalists were ranked first and second. Capizzi's win, along with the 30 pins bonus, put him into the #1 spot for the Top 5 Stepladder Finals. The Stepladder began with #5 seed Steve Meyer defeating 2017 Rochester Senior Masters champion and #4 seed Bill Hasiotis, 203-179. It was a bittersweet finish for Hasiotis who lost his mother earlier in the week. Meyer then ousted 2003 Masters champion (Clover Lanes) and #3 seed Ray LeChase II, 173-154. Rose then entered and nipped Meyer, a 3-time runner-up finisher in the Masters, 215-214, setting up the championship match. Capizzi and Rose were close for the first half of the contest, but then Capizzi pulled away with four consecutive strikes in frames six through nine. Rounding out the Top 12 were 2012 champion (Empire) Ryan Kretchmer in 6th place; Ken Ball in 7th place; Troy McClure in 8th place; Anthony Colosimo in 9th place; Sarah Germano, in 10th place; Mark Scuderi finished 11th and Bob Wiley placed 12th. Capizzi praised his 900 Global equipment - the Honey Badger Claw, the Respect and his AMF SUMO SE. It has been a hot bowling season for the Capizzi family. Just a few weeks earlier Sam's daughter Alena won the AMF Dewey Garden Lanes Adult/Youth 9-Pin No-Tap Thanksgiving Tournament with her mom Amanda. It was Alena's first bowling award.

USBC rule modifies how bowling balls can be drilled; 2-year window to make adjustments

Balance holes will become illegal effective August 1, 2020. If you have any bowling balls with balance holes that you wish to use in USBC-sanctioned competition on or after that date, you must have the balance hole plugged. Starting August 1, 2018, balls that do not have balance holes (including balls with balance holes that have been plugged) are allowed to have up to 3 ounces of static imbalance in all directions (positive side/negative side, finger/thumb, and top/bottom).
From August 1, 2018 until July 31, 2020, balls that DO have balance holes are limited to the "old" static imbalance rules of 1 ounce for side weight, 1 ounce for finger or thumb weight, and 3 ounces for top or bottom weight.

This means that there is a two-year "phasing in" period giving bowlers time to adjust to the new rules. If you would like to, you can start drilling balls today that conform to the new rules (no balance holes, but with more weight imbalance allowed). You may also continue drilling balls that follow the old rules (with balance holes, BUT with the old, stricter static imbalance limits). Also, bowlers now have the option to start plugging their balance holes in preparation for the August 1, 2020 balance hole ban.
