Quaker State Open



$150,000 QUAKER STATE OPEN
Forum Bowl, Grand Prairie, Texas, Jan 23-28, 1989

Back-To-Back For Ballard

Del Bollard, Jr. won his second consecutive PBA title, upsetting leading qualifier Steve Wunderlich 234-230, for the $150,000 Quaker State Open at Forum Bowling Lanes.

Ballard, of nearby Richardson, Texas, considered this a "hometown" victory and said, "This is the one I've always wanted to win," referring to the friendly, familiar surroundings of Forum Bowl.

Wunderlich, St. Louis, was looking for his first PBA singles title in 20 championship round appearances and looked unbeatable after opening with four strikes. Ballard started with a strike, spared and then added his own four-bagger to take tile lead through six frames. In the 10th frame, he could have shut out Wunderlich with a strike and nine count, but struck and left the 8-10 to finish with 234. Wunderlich needed all three 10th-frame strikes to tie and force a roll-off for the championship. He got the first two, but ended with a six-count on his final shot.

"I threw the last ball in the same place as the previous strike, but just didn't catch it," Wunderlich said. "I came out aggressively and thought maybe my luck had changed when I carried the 7-10 in the first frame," he said. "The difference today was I threw two bad shots and Del didn't throw any."
