Pete Weber Wins 21st PBA Title
Pete Weber was nearly perfect in becoming the first double winner of the ninth annual Oronamic C Japan Cup, hosted by Tokyo Port Bowl. Weber, St. Ann, Mo., defeated Brian Voss, 276-227, for the $39,000 first prize in this international professional bowling competition. The PBA Tour leads the series against Japan's leading pro bowlers, seven victories to two.
Weber opened the title game with a four-bagger, spare, and then strung six more strikes to clinch the title in the ninth frame. Voss appeared slightly tired from having advanced past four earlier opponents, and couldn't match Weber's firepower. Voss, Boca Raton, Fla., earned $20,000.
Voss opened the championship round by defeating Tokyo's Kenichi Kurobe, 236-224, and then dispatched, in order, Eric Forkel, 214-198, PBA President Mike Aulby, 245-202, and the only other Japanese bowler in the field, second-seeded Yasutomo Bannai of Tokyo, 254-202.
PBA's 160-man qualifying team split into two eight-man groups at the start of the 11-day trip, and traveled to Sendai and Nagoya, respectively, for Pro-Ams and exhibitions. Norm Duke and Voss claimed those trophies there, respectively.
Bannai earned $13,000 for third place, Aulby, Indianapolis, received $9,000 for fourth, Forkel, Chatsworth, Calif., collected $7,000 and Kumbe $6,200.
