In the Pocket: Guilderland High grad Van Buren’s obsession with game pays off

Austin Van Buren has nine perfect games this season at Town & Country Lanes.

Austin Van Buren’s newest bowling ball of choice explains his favorite hobby perfectly.

Since purchasing the new Hammer “Obsession” the powerful Van Buren has recorded three perfect games, two 800 triples and a huge 1,117 four-game series last week at Town & Country Lanes. Indeed, Van Buren is obsessed with this sport.

Van Buren’s honor scores this season are simply off the charts. He’s already rolled nine perfect games and is hunting for more. The 24-year-old Guilderland High School and Hudson Valley Community College graduate has pushed his career totals to 23 sanctioned perfect games and six 800 triples, with a high of 858. That total was his first three during last Thursday night’s monster four-game set that started off with a 300 game and continued with a 258, his second perfect game of the night and a 259 finale.

“I’ve had a tremendous year,” said Van Buren, who is a service technician at Van Buren Enterprises. “I attribute it to Jack [Scaccia], Anthony [Scaccia] and my father. I never thought I would ever shoot 1,100 for four games, and to get 1,117 like I did the other night was something else. I can’t tell you the emotions I felt. Toward the end of game No. 4, I knew I needed four more strikes to get to the 1,100 mark. I definitely pay attention to the scores, especially in that Thursday night league, because every pin matters. Most of the guys average 220 plus, and they are all capable of big games. I always want to pay attention to what I need.”

The Altamont native said he’s able to stay calm even when he knows he’s rolling a special game.

“Ever since I was a kid, when I threw my first 300, I’ve thought about the scores I was shooting very early in the game,” he said. “If I’m throwing the ball good and carrying, I know I have the potential to throw a perfect game. I do look at the scores all the time. Mentally, I’m involved to the point where thinking about the scores doesn’t affect my game.”

Van Buren’s father, Art, has been one of the Capital Region’s best left-handers for several decades. He taught Austin the game when he was just 5 years old and continues to offer help, especially when they bowl together as teammates.

“I fell in love with the game when my father introduced me to it,” Van Buren said. “Everyone has one thing they do with their father, and that’s the thing that me and my father have in common. It’s an awesome relationship. It’s nice to see both of us excel.”

Van Buren admitted that even though he was an excellent bowler as a youngster, he’s improved tremendously in the last few years.

“I’ve done a lot of work over the last two years with Anthony Scaccia and his father,” Van Buren said. “I was very displeased with my game, and Jack came down to me one day while I was practicing. He put a broomstick in front of me, and I hit it with my ball when it was three feet in front of me. It proved to me that I was throwing the ball terribly and didn’t really have a clue where I was throwing it. All of last year I’ve done nothing but practice to make my game better. My timing is better, my release is better and my overall accuracy is better.”

Van Buren said the key to his game is his footwork and timing.

“I don’t even know where I look down on the lane honestly,” he said. “It comes down to repetition with my footwork. My timing was always late, and with my game, on a lot of patterns, if I miss to the right, the ball hooks early. I’m always asking my dad how my timing is. He watches me and lets me know what I’m doing. I love it when he watches me during tournaments.”

Besides his father and Jack Scaccia’s early lessons, Van Buren credits Anthony Scaccia’s ball-drilling and equipment choices for his recent success.

“Anthony kills it when it comes to ball-drilling,” Van Buren said. “I’ve never focused on layouts before. I just tell Anthony to drill it the way he thinks it should be done. I just tell him if I want it to hook and where I want it to hook. He’s given me a lot of good advice on equipment.”

Van Buren said he uses Brunswick equipment — and those companies under the Brunswick equipment umbrella like Hammer — exclusively.

“Anthony is on the Brunswick staff, and I’m very loyal to him,” he said.

Although Van Buren’s recent string of perfect games is impressive, he did make his mark on the game during his scholastic career.

“I loved my high school days,” he said. “My freshman year was rough. I averaged 215 and didn’t make the varsity because our team was so strong. But my sophomore year, I got to the varsity, and most of the top-tier bowlers graduated. I was second overall in the section as a sophomore, led the singles as a junior and also led the singles again as a senior. I made a lot of good friends at the states, even though I didn’t bowl very well there.”

Van Buren said he is also working hard to fine-tune his game for tournament play. For one thing, he’s learning how to play more down-and-in when the conditions call for it.

“I’ve learned to change my axis tilt and stay more behind the ball when I have to,” he said.

So far, Van Buren owns a scratch singles title and a team title in the Schenectady USBC Open Championship. He and his father finished second in the Over/Under tournament last year at Towne Bowling Academy. He is also waiting for the official results in the TNBA Danzy for King Trios Tournament, where he should finish among the leaders in the scratch singles department.

Van Buren finished second in a Capital District Youth Scholarship Tour event at Hometown Lanes as a junior, when he set a record for four-game and seven-game qualifying. He also finished seventh in the 2018 Green Mountain Open. He said he came close to making the cut in the NEBA tour and bowled solidly during his first attempt at the USBC Nationals when they were held in Syracuse a few years ago.

“I just love bowling, and I don’t ever foresee me giving up the game,” he said.

FAZZONE IS FABULOUS

Action Bowling Supply pro shop operator Matt Fazzone, one of the area’s premier left-handers, was sensational last weekend while winning the prestigious 31st annual New York State USBC Masters at East Greenbush Bowling Center.

Fazzone, 29, defeated Connor LeClair 414-374 in the two-game championship match to secure one of the most respected trophies in the state. A stellar field of 120 bowlers — divided into two five-game qualifying squads — rolled five games to earn a spot in the 24-player match-play field. Each single-elimination match consisted of two games of total pinfall. The top couple of bowlers in each qualifying squad received first-round byes.

Fazzone earned a check for $2,400 and a paid entry into the 2022 USBC Masters.

A Rotterdam native, Fazzone is no stranger to big-time scratch tournaments. He won the New England Bowling Association Hall of Fame Silver Lanes Open in East Hartford, Connecticut in January of 2019.

The Mohonasen High School and Hudson Valley Community College graduate has recorded 39 perfect games and 24 800 triples to date. He is averaging 230 in the Reis Group Kim Brown Memorial City League Monday nights at Towne Bowling Academy and 234 in the Capital District All Star league Thursday nights at Sportsman’s Bowl.

Fazzone also has a Northeast Bowling Proprietors of New York Huck Finn title to his credit along with a Towne Team Tournament crown, as well as a triumph in the Uncle Nick Doubles with partner Jim Geiger.

“This has to rank as the highest career achievement thus far,” Fazzone said. “Shooting 300 to win the Huck Finn at Middleburgh and the 2019 NEBA were very big and still mean a lot to me, but to win a prestigious tournament like this blows those of the water.”

Other Capital Region standouts to make the cut for match play included Ryan Karabin (fifth, 1,105), Robert Danzy (sixth, 1,104), Scott Zalud (11th, 1,066), Gene Speenburgh (14th, 1,051), Connor LeClair (15th, 1,050), Matt Swiatocha (17th, 1,040), R.J. Martinez (18th, 1,031), Steve Wagoner (19th, 1,030) and Kyle Haines (20th, 1,026).

ANOTHER MAJOR HONOR

Known for his smooth style and flawless fundamentals, Brian LeClair continues to pile up accolades in a remarkable bowling career on and off the lanes. The proprietor of Revolutions Pro Shop at Boulevard Bowl was named to the Albany USBC Hall of Fame over the weekend, and it’s an honor well deserved.

LeClair, also a member of the Columbia-Greene Bowling Association Hall of Fame, spent nearly two decades on the PBA Tour, finishing runner-up in both the 1996 PBA Synergy Open and the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational.

Since joining the PBA50 national tour, he’s won five PBA50 national titles and four PBA50 regional tournaments, including teaming up with his son, Connor, for a regional doubles crown. The highlight of his long pro career was being named the 2017 PBA50 Player of the Year.

LeClair owns 18 PBA regional titles and was the 2015 Eastern Region Player of the Year. He has currently rolled 102 career perfect games. When not competing, he enjoys drilling equipment and giving lessons to area bowlers.

GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

Maurice “Mo” Pinel died at the age of 79 over the weekend from COVID-19 complications. He was one of the founders of modern reactive bowling ball technology and definitely moved the needle when it comes to high-powered bowling balls that can hook from gutter to gutter on most oil conditions.

Pinel was the technology developer for the Radical brand but his long career included working with MoRich, AMF, where he introduced the high-flaring Sumo, and for Faball, where he developed the Hammer 3D Offset. His innovations in terms of very aggressive hooking bowling balls were industry changers.

He was a fine bowler himself back in his day and was also a noted instructor. He will be missed.
