Colin Champion

Colin Champion (Brandon, FL) EBT Gold Digger Classic - Elite Division

#1 ranked Colin Champion lives up to his name and wins his 2nd EBT title this season by out lasting the field of scratch bowlers on the unforgiving Gold Digger 42' pattern.  His final score of 1032 proved just enough to edge out the win.  Now can he tranfer his championships to the big show in September?  We will soon find out!  Congrats and great bowling!

Richard Hazelmyer

Richard Hazelmyer (Lutz, FL) EBT Gold Digger Classic - Classic Division

#2 ranked Ricahrd Hazelmyer wins his 2nd EBT title on the ever challenging EBT Gold Digger 42' oil pattern today after shooting an impressive 931 series with every game above average.  This puts Richard in excellent position and preparation for the champion of the year which takes place in August.  Can he use his win streak to turn it into a COTY title?  Three-time winner with a COTY title would be pretty good.  Congrats and great bowling!
