In 2019, Bill O'Neill made himself Hall of Fame-eligible by winning his 10th career title in the Hall of Fame Classic.

Tommy Jones started the 2005 season by winning each of the first two events–the Dydo Japan Cup (which was the second straight year he won that event) and the Tulsa Championship, the latter with a 289 game.

The next year, Walter Ray Williams opened 2006 by winning the Dydo Japan Cup for his 42nd career title, rolling 289 against Pete Weber to break the all-time PBA Tour titles record he previously shared with Earl Anthony.

Norm Duke began the 2008-2009 season the same way he finished the 2007-2008 season: by winning a major championship. Duke's season-opening win in the PBA World Championship (then called the National Championship) was his second consecutive World Championship and also gave him three major titles in a row, having won the last two majors of the previous season.

Tommy Jones began the 2020 season with an induction in the PBA Hall of Fame. The next day, he shot 300 against Darren Tang to win the Hall of Fame Classic for Jones' 20th career PBA Tour title.
