WES MALOTT returns to Team USA for this year’s Weber Cup after Chris Barnes was forced to withdraw through injury. Tommy Jones will step into Barnes’ role as team captain to lead the squad which also includes Bill O’Neill and 34-time PBA title winner Parker Bohn III.
Malott made his Weber Cup debut last year winning five of his seven singles matches as USA were edged out by Europe in a tie-break Baker Match in one of the most dramatic Weber Cup finales in the tournament’s history.
The 38 year old Texan returns to the American line-up for this year’s transatlantic tenpin tussle, which takes place at Barnsley Metrodome, October 16-18 and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland, ESPN3 in America. The event will be streamed live in high definition at a cost of just $19.99 online around the world at webercup.com (excludes UK & Ireland).
Tommy Jones will captain the American side for the first time as he celebrates ten consecutive years on Team USA in tenpin bowling’s high-octane answer to the Ryder Cup.
The Weber Cup will be staged over five sessions – 7.00pm Friday and 1.00pm and 6.00pm on Saturday and Sunday. The tournament will be produced by Matchroom Sport television and broadcast live on Sky Sports and as 16 x one hour programmes for international syndication.
