Brunswick Memorial World Open



$200,000 BRUNSWICK MEMORIAL WORLD OPEN
Brunswick Northern Bowl, Glendale Heights, III., Nov 10-17, 1990

Rookie Jimmy Johnson On Top Of World

Jimmy Johnson of Columbus, Ohio, became the first rookie to win a tournament since 1986 by capturing the $200,000 Brunswick Memorial World Open at Brunswick Northern Bowl. Johnson joined his famous father, Don, a 26-time PBA champion and Hall of Famer, who won this crown in 1971 and '72. Johnson defeated leading qualifier Robert Lawrence, Austin, Texas, 243-227, for the $33,000 first prize.

Johnson started with six consecutive strikes and held an 18-pin lead at that point. In his seventh frame, Johnson failed to convert the 2-4-5 spare and opened the door for Lawrence, who was gunning for his third title of 1990. Lawrence had the opportunity to shut out Johnson in his 10th frame by striking out, but an errant first shot spelled victory for the rookie. Lawrence collected $17,000 as runner-up.

The championship round began with fourth-seeded Don Moser eliminating Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Okla., 249-238. Moser then defeated defending champion Parker Bohn III, Freehold, N.J., 208-200, before failing to Johnson, 236-204.

Johnson also collected a boat, motor and trailer package worth more than $9,000 as part of his first prize. There were 20 international players representing 15 different countries in the 192-man field. The tournament established a PBA record with 16 300 games in the 56-game format.
