Masters Story

WAUWATOSA, Wis. - Only two bowlers in the 56-year history of the United States Bowling Congress Masters have successfully defended their titles. The feat hasn't been accomplished since Billy Welu did it in 1965, and it's not going to happen this year.
Despite averaging 239.67 for 12 games Thursday at AMF Bowlero Lanes in suburban Milwaukee, defending champion Danny Wiseman of Baltimore was knocked out of the double-elimination bracket with a 655-650 loss to Christopher Sand of Chesterfield, Mich.
Sand, who finished third in the 1998 Masters, needed two strikes in the final frame of the three-game match to erase a 17-pin deficit and slip past Wiseman. Sand delivered three clutch strikes and advances to meet Brad Angelo, who fell to qualifying leader Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, in the third round of the winners' bracket.
"Since I'm not out on tour anymore, I haven't been bowling much," said Sand, who is a salesman for Roto Grip and Turbo 2-n-1. "But it's always nice to be in that situation and make the shots when you need them."
After losing to Adam Barta of Girard, Ohio, in the opening round, Sand topped Derek Eoff of Greenfield, Wis., and then avenged his first-round loss with a win over Barta to set up his meeting with Wiseman.
Wiseman, who was automatically seeded into the 32nd spot in the bracket, was matched up against 40-time Denny's PBA Tour titlist and 2004 (January) Masters champion Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., in the opening round.
Needing a double in the final frame of his three-game match against Williams Jr., Wiseman struck on his first shot, but left a 10-pin on his second attempt, falling 788-782. Wiseman entered the final game of the match with a 24-pin lead, but Williams struck on his first 10 shots to erase the deficit and put the pressure on Wiseman.
"I knew my match with Walter Ray was going to be a tough one, and since we were playing the same part of the lane, I knew they would open up for us," said Wiseman, an 11-time titlist. "I'd rather lose to Walter Ray than anyone else though. He's the best player in the world. It was great for the fans, and there was a lot of drama out there."
Wiseman went on to defeat Kerry Kreft of Madison Heights, Mich., 744-566 and Marc Massie of Fort Wright, Ky., 700-567 before running into Sand.
"I came into this week knowing that if I could just win four matches, I'd be on the show again," Wiseman said. "I knew I had an advantage over everyone else since I didn't have to go through qualifying. If I can take anything positive out of this though, it's knowing that I was able to shoot the scores I did with the lanes as tough as they were. I was able take make shot after shot 95 percent of the time. Unfortunately, the other couple of shots that I threw were really bad, and it cost me."
