Simonsen wins PBA Players Championship with Storm Trend

Anthony Simonsen earned the top seed in the West Region and successfully claimed his spot in the PBA Players Championship Finals and a chance at $250,000. Simonsen defeated Kris Koeltzow 279-205.

“That was by far my best TV performance in the last few attempts,” Simonsen said. “The Storm Trend was absolutely money on the show. Great game plan + Great ball motion = Success!”

Simonsen who has been working hard throughout the pandemic on his game and in his new position managing the lanes inside The Nerd Bar in Las Vegas truly showcased how hard he’s been working. He chose to use the Storm Trend which was designed to give a quicker response and a more defined breakpoint that helped Simonsen tackle the lanes in the match.

“I’m happy to be back bowling, especially for a major, and I put a lot of practice in,” said Simonsen in the PBA release. “Something clicked a couple days before the qualifying rounds and I’ve been really comfortable since.”

The PBA Players Championship Finals will air live on FOX on Feb. 21.
