PBA World Championship

The PBA World Championship Pattern is similiar to Pattern D from the 2002-2003 PBA Tour Season. The condition allows the players to play multiple angles depending on the type and condition of the lane surface. This design puts a premium on shot making and keeping the ball in play.
