She was the only woman entered in the 64-player field and now joins Missy Bellinder (right) of Lake Forest, Calif., as the only women to win two PBA regional tournaments..."

~ The 11th Frame: Kelly Kulick does it again -- "If there is any debate that Kelly Kulick is having the greatest year a female bowler ever has had, she seems to be trying to end it.

Smith, 259-258. Her Round of 8 win came over multiple PBA Tour champion and veteran Chris Warren, 2-1 (206-256, 249-238, 249-215). And in the Round of 16, she beat former PBA exempt player Mitch Beasley, 3-1 (234-220, 194-214, 231-197, 203-177). That's some pretty tough competition!..."

Winning a major title is worth two years (three years for the U.S. Open). There are other ways to earn exemptions, but aside from winning a major title, there is no way to get an exemption of longer than one year. Is that enough?
