GREEN BAY – The Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) 2021 U.S. Open is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 21-28 at the Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley in Green Bay.
The dates are subject to change based on the schedule and programming for the PBA and its television partner, FOX Sports, while locations and entry maximums also can change due to recommended best practices, social-distancing protocol and other COVID-19 restrictions.
“We’re excited to get back to doing what we love, and that is putting on top-tier events for all of our USBC (United States Bowling Congress) members,” said USBC Executive Director Chad Murphy. “We also know we must do so cautiously and responsibly because the safety of the competitors is our top concern.”
The 2021 U.S. Open will feature 108 of the world’s best bowlers, most of whom earned their spots in the event based on their recent on-lane performances.
The list includes leaders on the PBA Tour points list and top performers at USBC events and PBA majors.
The U.S. Open format features qualifying across multiple oil patterns and round-robin match play, before the top-five competitors advance to the television stepladder, based on their 56-game pinfall totals.
