Brunswick Memorial World Open



$200,000. BRUNSWICK MEMORIAL WORLD OPEN
Brunswick Northern Bowl, Glendale Heights, III., Nov 13-19, 1988

Karlsson Tops World

Sweden's Mats Karlsson capped the international flavor of the $200,000 Brunswick Memorial World Open with a 231-199 victory against Marshall Holman to collect the $33,000 first prize at Brunswick Northern Bowl. The win marked Karlsson's third PBA championship and re-qualified him for the Firestone Tournament of Champions.

Both finalists opened with strikes, but Holman failed to convert the 6-7-10 split in his second frame to fall behind. Karlsson came back with three successive spares, while Holman answered with three straight strikes to take a short-lived lead. Karlsson then responded with a four-bagger and when Holman chopped the 3-6-9 leave in his seventh frame, the outcome was all but finalized.

Included in the field of global stars was 1988 Seoul Olympic bowling gold medalist Kwon Jong-Yul of South Korea, who, along with women's gold medalist Arianne Cerdena of the Philippines, were the 1988 tournament's honorees.

In the opening game of the NBC Sports-televised championship finals, Kodak Invitational champion of three weeks earlier, Ron Palombi Jr., Erie, Pa., topped Mark Williams of Beaumont, Texas, 245-226, before being dropped by Holman, Medford, Ore., 247-187. In the semifinal match-up against second-seeded Parker Bohn III, Freehold, N.J., Holman came from behind by striking seven times in his final nine attempts to overcome Bohn's opening five-bagger and advanced, 244-219.
