Tackett claims berth in 2019 World Bowling finals


Bluffton resident EJ Tackett claimed the third berth in the 2019 World Bowling Tour Men’s Finals on Jan. 6, at the International Research and Training Center in Arlington, Texas. The event will be broadcast on FS1 on March 10.

Tackett earned the spot in part because of a gold-medal performance in all-events in the World Bowling Men’s Championships in Hong Kong last week, 

Tackett will join 2018 WBT points leader Anthony Simonsen of Little Elm, Texas, and Stuart Williams of England in the men’s finals. 

On his way to winning the all-events gold medal in Hong Kong, Tackett also won gold in trios with Team USA teammates Andrew Anderson and Kyle Troup and a silver medal in doubles with Anderson, PBA’s newly-crowned 2018 Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year. Anderson was also silver-medalist in all-events.
