2016 Senior Masters Brings 70 Entries, Joe Shullek Grabs Title

Joe Shullek swept the match-play field Sunday, Feb. 14,  to win the John Nevada Memorial Senior Masters Championship Tournament at AMF Dewey Garden Lanes.

Shullek, a Rochester USBC BA Hall of Famer, routed defending champion Mark McClain in the final, 256-195, to win his first Senior Masters title. The Senior Masters is for bowlers 50 years and up.

McClain, who came out of the losers' bracket, was attempting to become the first bowler to win two straight titles and also the first with three. Instead, he settled for his third runner-up finish.

Shullek, former long-time owner of the Pinbusters Pro Shops, shot 793 for his last three games of match play. Before stopping McClain, he beat Ray Le Chase II, 258-215, and Ken Ball, 279-257.

Shullek won $900, a Senior Masters Championship ring, a paid entry to the New York State Masters Tournament and a champion's crystal pin.

McClain won $600, while Le Chase earned $400.

McClain had to beat Shullek in two straight games to take the title. But Shullek said he put everything he had left in that first one.

A  gracious winner, Shullek amused onlookers by coining his own word swhen he said McClain had been "shulleked" in the final.
