Dave Chapman’s Return – Big Ball Shootout – May 12th

(On-Line Entry HERE)

May 12-14, 2017 ~ Stratosphere, Las Vegas

WPH returns to Sin City for another amazing outdoor 3 wall big ball Shootout, as the 2017 Gold Cup continues!

As you recall, Manny Suarez took down the yellow at stop #1 in Stockton @ the Annual Iceman Challenge in January; meanwhile, Samzon Hernandez got back to his winning ways @ the Royal Flush a couple weeks later.  With Salt Lake City heading indoors in April, to continue the series, the WPH Outdoor Group will be clambering to head back outdoors and no better place to do it other than Vegas!

Who will win Gold Cup Stop #4?

WPH will have over $7,000 in combined prize money for this event; big enough that it forced outdoor legend, David Chapman, out of retirement, “After a long and needed layoff, I’ve decided to make a tournament appearance at the WPH Outdoor Big Ball Shootout in May.  This event is in my favorite city, …Las Vegas!”  When asked about conditioning, The Great One replied, “Hopefully I still have it.”

During Chapman’s 25 year career, he won multiple national outdoor three wall titles (all with the small ball); however, Chapman grew up playing big ball outdoors in Long Beach and prefers the pavement over hardwood.

Aside from a monumental Chapman return to the game, expect the best big ball players in the game to appear.  From Samzon Hernandez (CA), Timothy Gonzalez (NY), Shorty Ruiz (AZ) and Chava Cordova (CA) to Boxer Rosales (ID), Sal Duenas (CA), Ricky Ruiz (CA) and more!
