Bud Light Classic



$160,000 BUD LIGHT CLASSIC
Don Carter's All-Star Lanes-Sawgrass, Sunrise Fla., Feb 11-16, 1991

This Bud (Light) Was For Benoit

Bob Benoit made history in winning his first PBA title three years earlier and another historic accomplishment occurred during his four-game march to his second championship. Benoit captured the $160,000 Bud Light Classic at Don Carter's All Star Lanes-Sawgrass by defeating leading qualifier Wayne Webb, 204-183, for the $30,000 first prize.

In his third game of the afternoon, Benoit again was involved in PBA record-making, only this time as an observer. John Mazza of Mount Clemens, Mich., became the second player ever (and first left-hander) to convert the 7-10 split on live national television (ABC Sports). However, Mazza bowed to Benoit In the semifinal, 224-198, when he could have become just the third player in PBA history to collect his first two wins back-to-back (the others being Dick Weber and Dick Ritger). Mark Roth first converted the 7-10 split in the 1980 ARC Alameda (Calif.) Open.

The championship game began with Benoit converting the 2-7-8 split and then failing to convert the 1-2-4 leave in his second frame, while Webb doubled to start his game. Benoit then struck twice mid-game and closed with a five-bagger. An eighth-frame gutter ball proved especially costly for Webb, who earned $16,000 as runner-up.

In the first game of the live ABC Sports telecast, Benoit, Topeka, Kan., topped Pete Weber, Florissant, Mo., 216-180. Benoit continued against 1990 PBA Player of the Year Amleto Monacelli of Venezuela, who was sidelined, 203-202.
