Topeka's Chris Barnes to Appear on "Letterman" Tonight

Denny’s PBA Tour stars Chris Barnes, Norm Duke and Tommy Jones will make an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” Monday, July 30.

The three stars will perform trick shots on a portable lane throughout the late night talk show, which airs Monday night at 11:35 p.m.

Barnes is an eight-time Denny’s PBA Tour titlist who won the inaugural 2004-05 PBA Skills Challenge, a trick shot competition which made him famous for his “Flying Eagle” shot.

Duke, who owns 26 Denny’s PBA Tour titles, is also a past Skills Challenge competition winner, capturing the title during the 2005-06 season. Duke is known for striking with a ball thrown from a towel, as well as converting the 7-10 split with one ball ricocheting off a slow spinning ball.

Jones, the 2005-06 PBA Player of the Year who last season reached 10 Denny’s PBA Tour titles faster than any player in history, joined in the Skills Challenge competition the last two years as well. He became known for throwing a ball over a chair to throw a strike.

David Letterman is in his 25th year of late-night television, hosting nearly 5,000 broadcasts and 15,000 guests. He has garnered 14 Emmy Awards and 89 Emmy nominations in that span. After spending almost 12 years at "Late Night with David Letterman," Letterman moved his show to the CBS Television Network on Aug. 30, 1993, and is now in his 14th season on CBS.
