Jim Hennessey wins the 2005 BPAA Cadillac Shootout.

Jim Hennessey qualified out of Al-Mar Lanes in Bowling Green, and won the Northwest District Tournament which was held at River City Bowl in Napoleon. That win earned him a spot in the National BPAA Cadillac Shootout held in Orlando, Florida (Tuesday June 28). There were 10,000 bowlers that attempted to qualify in the Country in which only 42 advanced to Florida. Tournament format is a little different. The name of the game is to bowl your average or get as close as possible without going over. It was a three game tournament, the first game was get close to your average winner received $1,000. The second game was to see how far over your average you could get winner received $1,000. The third game was for all of the money, get your average or as close to your average as possible without going over. Jim's average is 203, he started out slow with two opens but threw a 4 bagger in the middle of the game. It came down to where Jim needed a strike and a spare in the tenth frame for a 202, to be 1 pin under his average which would have put him in the lead. He struck on the first ball then for his second shot in the tenth he moved four boards left trying not to strike, hoping to leave something he can pick up but the outcome was not what he wanted he threw a strike. Now in a predicament he needs to get just one pin because he can not throw a gutter do to the rules, if he gets more than one he is automatically out of contention. In the last ball of the tournament Jim picked off just the ten pin to secure the win. Congratulations Jim!

Jim is seen here with BPAA President Jeff Boje. Jim had the option of a brand new 2005 Cadillac retailed at $31,000 or a cash prize of $26,000. Jim did hesitate but he took the cash prize.
