Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Hardy's Danny Ruff won the coin toss to become the champion of the 9-pin, no-tap handicap sweeper at Indian Hills Bowl Nov. 1.

A field of 47 bowlers competed for the prize fund of $1,292 in the event.

Three 300 games were rolled during qualifying by Keith Anderson of Batesville, Adam Kingsbury of Cherokee Village and Seth Jorgenson of West Plains.

Each received a $25 gift certificate from Danny's Pro Shop, located inside Indian Hills Bowl.

Local bowler Lee Rogers finished as the10th seed and was the high non-cash senior for a $50 cash award.

The top 16 finishers were seeded into a single-game bracket elimination format.

Finishing eighth was eighth seed David Bangma from Branson, earning him $52. Finishing seventh was sixth seed Jesse Ruff from Harrison ($60). Finishing sixth was second seed Adam Kingsbury ($80); finishing 5th was top seed (1320 pins) Jeff Phillips from Batesville ($100).

Fourth place went to 14th seed Charlie Pipes of Jonesboro ($150).

Third place went to 11th seed and local bowler Matt James ($200).

Fifth seed Rick Isley from Batesville and 13th seed Danny Ruff from Ozark Acres were set to start the final match after four-and-a-half hours of bowling when they decided to split the first and second place money and use a coin toss for champion status. Ruff won the toss and both received $300 for their efforts.
