Brunswick Memorial World Open



$200,000 BRUNSWICK MEMORIAL WORLD OPEN
Brunswick Northern Bowl, Glendale Heights, III., Nov 11-18, 1989

PBA Win No. II For Parker Bohn III

For Parker Bohn III, his sixth championship round appearance of 1989 proved the charm, but for Philip Ringener, his ninth career appearance still left him without benefit of a PBA title. Bohn, Freehold, N.J., defeated Ringener, Big Spring, Texas, 217-190, in the $200,000 Brunswick Memorial World Open at host Brunswick Northern Bowl.

Ringener had advanced to the championship game from the fifth-seeded position and looked unbeatable following a 220-184 semifinal thrashing of Gave Ferraro, Kingston, N.Y. Both Bohn and Ringener opened the title game with strikes, and stayed close as Bohn nursed a 10-pin advantage after five frames. Ringener failed to convert the 2-8-10 split in his seventh frame while Bohn encountered no difficulty down the home stretch to allow Ringener an opportunity to climb back into their game.

Ringener's first victory came at the expense of the Tour's 1989 money earnings record-setter, Mike Aulby of Indianapolis, 201-200. Aulby started with a double while Ringener spared and then chopped the 3-8 spare, thinking, "Here we go again!"Next up for Ringener was Hugh Miller, Everett, Wash., seeking his first title since 1984, but he was denied, 224-184. In fact, after Aulby was ousted, the remaining foursome had had their difficulty in championship round competition, particularly this year. Ferraro had been in the championship game five times in '89 and returned as runnerup every time.

Brunswick Corporation donated $15 per pin spilled in the championship round toward Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital, with a total of $25,000 designated to benefit cystic fibrosis research. The tournament also featured 21 international stars, representing 14 different countries, among the 192-man field. Japan's Masanori Salto was the top non-PBA foreign finisher (34th), and collected $5,000 for that distinction.
