TJ doesn't let the lane conditions sting; holds on for PBA Scorpion Championship

G-Force™ staff member Tommy Jones gave himself an early Christmas present by holding off the competition for his 18th career PBA Tour Title in the PBA Scorpion Championship, which aired as part of an ESPN double header on Christmas day. TJ defeated former staff member BJ Moore III 212-168 on what proved to be a demanding lane condition where staying out of trouble was the key. Jones and Moore found themselves in the title match after posting games of 212 and 224 respectively, edging out Jesper Svensson (194) and Brandon Novak (175) in the opening four player elimination match.

Tommy used K-Motion to great effect in relieving that tension from becoming an issue during the long 2 weeks that is the World Series of Bowling. “That (Scorpion) pattern is really tricky, especially when you’ve got four guys playing in a similar part of the lane,” Jones said. “You have to stay ahead of the moves, but if you get too far ahead, you go right by what’s happening to the condition. It’s one of the hardest patterns for me because I’m not very good at throwing the ball slow. It actually hurts the next day because I’m so tense from trying to slow down. It was hard throwing the ball slow during the week, but it was really hard on TV when you’ve got the adrenaline going. It’s something I’ve been working at and I’m getting better. We’ll call it mission accomplished.”

For Jones, it concluded a strong season which saw him win two titles (2016 PBA Jonesboro XF Open and Scorpion Championship) as well as earn the Xtra Frame $10,000 bonus after narrowly edging out runner-up and fellow G-Force™ staffers EJ Tackett and Ryan Ciminelli during the 9 event cumulative points race.

Beasleys road to victory in the 2016 PBA Chamelon Championship took many twists and turns

Congratulations to our friend Mitch Beasley on your win in the 2016 PBA Chameleon Championship. It was a long road to your first national title, spanning multiple injuries and 22 years of hard work. We're just glad that our K-Motion kinesiology tape was able to help you along the way.

Beasley, bowling in his 2nd title match of the season, defeated AJ Johnson 246-237 in an exciting match that saw two competitors hungry for their first title. One just starting out, and the other looking for redemption to a long career. It was age and experience that persevered this time, though with many obstacles along the way.

“I began to doubt I’d ever win because of the injuries,” Beasley said. “I fell off a ladder eight years ago and shattered my wrist, which cost me a year. Then I had to throw 13 pounds at the World Series that year (and cashed in three out of five events). Then I was out of bowling for two-and-a-half years with hip and back injuries."

“I saw nine different specialists. I had four tell me to do surgery, two said don’t, but I met a great surgeon who does reconstruction for people who have had a crushed pelvis in a car accident, and he said he knew exactly what my problem was. He did scans and MRIs, and found the issue and told me not to do fusion surgery because it would destroy my other hip and continue to destroy my back. So with lots of physical therapy and rest, it finally started to get better.”

Now, Mitch chooses to trust his injuries to our K-Motion kinesiology tape to help ease and manage any discomfort that comes his way. He was turned on to our product through his wife, Ingellimar Beasley, a 3 time Venezuela Woman Bowler of the Year and G-Force™ staff member. You may recall her being victorious during last years WSOB PBA Regional Challenge event that aired on ESPN.

Beasley survived the opening four player elimination match by striking on his final four shots to finish with a 239 and advance to the title match. AJ Johnson narrowly edged Thomas Larsen with a 236 to Larsen's 235 for the other spot in the title match after Thomas got a 6 count on his fill ball. Newly signed G-Force™ staffer Patrick Dombrowski finished 4th after posting a distant 182 during the match.
