Tom Adcock Wins PBA50 Showtime Lanes Midwest/Central Open
Virden, Ill. (March 20, 2016) – Tom Adcock of Decatur, Ill., defeated Dave Williams Jr. of Omaha, Neb., 204-203, to win the Professional Bowlers Association PBA50 Showtime Lanes Midwest/Central Open at Showtime Lanes Sunday.
The win was Adcock’s second in PBA Regional competition, and he earned $1,600. But he doesn’t get credit for a PBA title because he is not a member.
Adcock defeated David Tyrrel of Harlan, Iowa, 2-0, and Williams edged Bryan Goebel of Shawnee, Kan., 2-0, in the best-of-three-game semifinal round to set up the championship match.
Williams earned $1,000 for second place. Tyrrel and Goebel each earned $700 as semifinal round losers.
