SOUTH GLENS FALLS – The emotional roller coaster ride that Lisa Kolkin experienced from Rotterdam last week has finally ended a little prematurely.
Her performance at the US Women’s Open was not what she had hoped for because she failed to get to the cashier’s game or match. But at least on Saturday morning, she finished on a positive note and was able to take a break from the PWBA tour, knowing that the game didn’t leave her suddenly.
The 2018 United States Women’s Champion Kalkin started the week with great momentum. After all, she had just won her third PWBA tour of the Long Island Classic. But on Thursday, in the first round of the playoffs, it had a hard time with just eight games in 1,418 games (an average of 177), leaving Kingpin’s Alley Family Center ruined after taking 79th place in the 91-player competition.
The former Chalemont High School and the University of Nebraska team improved slightly on Friday with their 1540 second-round block, but they were still in the overall standings with very little chance of a place on the Cashier’s Top 30 tour.
When the third round started on Saturday with games 156, 187 and 124, she turned to the many fans of the metropolitan area and apologized for her performance. She even advised them to go somewhere else to have fun over the weekend.
But when one of her bombers advised her to move her line of attack far out, near the fifth board, rather than between the third and fourth arrows on the ship’s path, Kalkin’s figures jumped right away. She played 235, 244, 224 and 193 and then finished her championship with an impressive 258. In the 1621 set, she missed a lot, but it restored her confidence and smile.
“I was definitely nervous in the first two matches of the tournament. I wouldn’t throw great shots at that point. I wasn’t in line, I didn’t get a consistent reaction to the ball, “she said. You need to be comfortable and pay attention. You have to throw the ball well to move the correct ball and move the bar.
“It simply came to our notice then [the way she finished] That means everything to me today. I just wanted to end on a good note. I knew it would be a difficult task to exceed 150 people [the 200 mark considered scratch]. I will say that if I had made this move to the right much earlier, I would at least have been able to make the cut.
“When I first started the day, every time I didn’t hit, I left a split. It was easy to shoot 120, which I did. The bullet then suggested moving to the right, so I moved my foot 15 boards to the right to see what would happen. If I had done it earlier, I would have run into a cut.
Kalkina admitted that she plays bowling in front of family and friends near the house very nervously.
“It simply came to our notice then. During my career, I have played in many difficult situations – on a college team in the USA and on a PWBA tour. But she shows a different kind of pressure near her home. ”
The good news is that Kulkina has regained its shape after a major move to the shipping lanes.
“I needed 20 games, but the fans finally saw Lisa, who they all know,” she said. “The last thing I wanted to do was take a break to ask if there was anything wrong with my game. This schedule was tough. I didn’t have time to enjoy last week’s victory. The next day we got up and played another one. in the tournament and I played like a fool. I’ll be back. I went home to rest, but then I missed the loss of the US Open. At least they can’t rule out the fact that I won the title last week. “
Kalkina said she would likely return to Kingpin’s Alley Family Entertainment Center to support the center and her teammates at least once for the rest of the tournament. I also took some photos with Jason Belmontti, one of the all-time PBA tour artists who stopped several times this week to watch the pros compete. Kalkina said that Belmonti has known him for a long time and that they coincide from time to time when one of them wins the championship.
The cut was also missed by Susie Morina, a spokeswoman for Castleton at Hudson, the only spokeswoman for the town. She finished with 4489 pins and averaged 187.04. Its 1514 third round group included the last three games – 226, 235 and 224.
The numbers have grown
Despite the relatively low scores in the first two rounds, the third scored high.
Lefty Sherry Tan from Singapore continued his consistent game and remained in the lead with 5,180 needles averaging 215.83.
Jordan Richard of Maumee, Ohio, has launched a massive block of eight games since 1860, including her last four games 279, 246, 269 and 223. She is second.
“So then  Said the former PWBA debutant and two-time champion. I stayed on his head [the transition] I use the speed of the ball to my advantage. It was hard. I would say very tense. I just stayed behind the ball instead of driving around and using my speeds.
Among the top five are Lindsay Pomerchen of Brigham City, Utah (5098), Shane Nga of Singapore (5070) and Shannon Selins of Long Beach, a non-member (5063). Twenty-five players per shot averaged 200 or more.
There are eight more Top 30 games left on Sunday morning, then return to the Top 24 to start the game on Sunday night. The game will continue on Monday, with the top five entering the stair finals on Tuesday night. The winner earns $ 60,000 and the runner-up earns $ 30,000.
