On the women's side, all three players who advanced are from the United States and the top three saw no change after the Australian event. Missy Parkin, who finished second in Australia, took first with 369 points, Kelly Kulick was second with 344 and Liz Johnson got the last spot with 295 points.
The World Bowling Tour is made up of various events around the world and players earn points based on how they finish in each event. The current points system is based on a continuous two-year cycle, so points earned in 2011 are added to points earned in 2012 to determine the points list.
The World Bowling Tour Finals will use a stepladder format in each division with the No. 2 and No. 3 players facing each other for the right to take on the points leader.
The special event will feature a total prize fund of $70,000. The prize money for each division is the same, with the winner taking $20,000, second place earning $10,000 and third place winning $5,000.
