Marshall Kent wins Illinois Classic to Secure His 6th Career Title

Marshall Kent clinched his sixth PBA Tour title at the Illinois Classic. It was his first singles title since 2017, when he won Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.


Kent, the top seed, dazzled the crowd with a 214-180 win over recent Storm Lucky Larsen Masters winner AJ Johnson in a nail-biting final. A pivotal moment in the final match saw Kent rally from a setback, throwing four consecutive strikes to secure the win.

After the final match, Kent expressed gratitude to Holly Lanes in Michigan, where he practiced during the winter, calling it a "career saver." The win, just 30 minutes from his college stomping grounds, added a sentimental touch, with memories from his college days providing subconscious inspiration.


Marshall Kentr won not only PBA Tour title but also $25,000 prize.
