2011 Southern Gold Shootout promises to be the most exciting yet!

The 2011 Southern Gold Shootout will renew again this year on September 3-4, 2011.  This year’s tournament promises to be the most exciting yet with a new format for Junior Gold qualifying.  Each day of the tournament will crown a Junior Gold winner in both male and female divisions.  The winners from both days will bowl head-to-head for $200 in expense money!  This doubles the amount of spots awarded in previous years and adds even more excitement to the tournament.

The scholarship portion of the tournament remains the same with bowlers trying to reach the top six scores in both the male and female divisions.  Additionally, bowlers can re-enter in the scholarship portion of the tournament to try and get into the top six spots. Furthermore, the guaranteed 1st place scholarship has risen to $500 for the winning male and female, and the $3,000 for a 300 game remains an elusive but tantalizing prize.  Tournament directors hope to expand the impressive field of entries from last year’s tournament which included bowlers from:  Massachusetts, Minnesota, Virginia, Oklahoma, New York, Illinois, Alabama, North and South Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Florida, and Tennessee.  For more information please contact Kelly Marlin at or call 615-355-0501.

Labossiere And Doyle Capture Southern Gold Titles

Smyrna, TN (9/6/10) – Amanda Labossiere loves competitive bowling.  This was never more evident than at the 2010 Southern Gold Shootout held over Labor Day weekend.  The Arkansas State freshman won the tournament and promptly turned down the scholarship money and Junior Gold National spot.  Labossiere, a Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts native, is prohibited by the NCAA from accepting scholarship money during the school year. Furthermore, she had previously earned a Junior Gold National entry so the spot was passed to her collegiate teammate Rachael Gittings.  For her efforts Labossiere earned the championship plaque, the title Southern Gold Champion and the knowledge that she had defeated some of the nation’s best female bowlers.  Rounding out the top six finalists were Rachael Gittings from Glen Allen, Virginia; Kim Carper from Fort Ripley, Minnesota; Kristin Shinn from West Columbia, South Carolina; Amber Ottilige from Fayetteville, North Carolina; and Ashley Rucker from Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

In the boys division, 12 year old phenom Kamron Doyle avenged his 2nd place finish in 2009 by defeating Chris Gillis in the final match of the tournament. Doyle, a native of Brentwood, Tennessee  made headlines earlier this year when he became the youngest person ever to cash in a PBA event.  Finishing behind Doyle were Chase Smith from Savannah, Tennessee; Chris Gillis from Smyrna, Tennessee; Justin Turner from Nashville, Tennessee; Theo Shipp from Grandview, Missouri; and Justin Miller from Greenville, Tennessee.

The tournament include bowlers from 13 states.  The $3,000 for a 300 bonus was almost captured by Kamron Doyle as he scored a nearly perfect 280 game.  The organizers of the 2010 Southern Gold Shootout would like to thank Bowler’s Advantage Pro Shop for their generous support, as well as all the bowlers and their families for their participation!
