Hard to watch the plague of the 10 pins, but congrats to Belmo and Bill. I’m so glad they finally can scratch the doubles championship off their list.
Marshall Kent is this generation’s Chris Barnes; all the potential in the world but there will always be a handful of guys better than him.
stryx247 the more you think about it, this does make sense. At least in Barnes case he figured it out later in his career. Only time will tell if the same will happen for Kent.
stryx247 I think u meant to write Loschetter instead of Barnes.
Barnes is one of the best to ever throw the ball. If I had to pick someone to strike to save my life I’d pick Chris Barnes in a heartbeat.
Very good to see Roth! He looks great! <3
Its always good to see the great Mark Roth.
Much respect to the Tang bros on their performance. I was rooting for them the whole way.
Never root for the underdogs they always end up losing.
Definitely glad my team won but I do like these Tang brothers. I look forward to seeing them on tv more.
You mean the egg foo young brothers. Well after the tournament its back to pulling the old rickshaws.
Damn Marshall…..just damn. The TV hickups keep getting him!
Man Darren really should have gone with a weaker ball and gone way straighter. That hyper cell was making him throw way to the outside to avoid overhooking and by the time it got to the pocket the ball had lost all its energy.
i remember 4 years ago watching 2014 usa team trials on youtube seeing Michael and Darren Tang and Daniel Hanson and was like damn these guys need to be on tv with the pros and here they are
Marshall sure knows how to win titles for his opponent!
I feel like Marshall Kent would be better than Belmo if he doesn’t choke every tournament.
Felt bad for Marshall Kent. That was rough. Actually I like it when the pros are struggling to get strikes. Shows me that I’m not the only one who has a hard time out there!
Wanted Tang brothers to take it. O’Neil don’t like to miss lol Tang brothers are def fun to watch. Good rollers!
Great attitude shown by the tang brothers! And congrats to belmo/bill!
Congrats to Bill and Belmo. Can’t wait for the Masters in a couple weeks; come on Belmo and win your 10th major and 5th USBC Masters. 😀
Roth and Holman are the greatest duo ever. So cool I got to meet Holman each of the last 2 years at the Oregon State Tournament. Also met Chris Warren at the same tournament. The Texas Twister but resides in OR.
EJ had the best line on the entire telecast, shame Marshall was struggling.
Not trashing the ball or bowling skills, but I recently got a Soniq and seeing Marshall cut through the center was exactly what I was doing, there was no high, it was either flush or a split, ball snapped like a monster lol (love the ball btw, just what I noticed)
I feel Darren’s pain, I have choked on the ten pin quite a few times, in very crucial moments no less…..
The tang brothers were my fav from the start even thou they didn’t win it all they did great I look forward to seeing more of them
48:31 when Jakob said “this is for you mom!” That really hit me. Rip Mrs. Butturff ❤️
