Jesper Svensson Wins THE STORM CUP: David Small’s Best of the Best Championship
Jackson, Mich.—Jesper Svensson won his 11th PBA Tour title by defeating Packy Hanrahan in the championship match of THE STORM CUP: David Small’s Best of the Best Championship at JAX60. Svensson was the tournament leader after every round of competition, ultimately rolling 248 in the championship match to claim the title.
“I managed to play to my strengths and do what I like to do,” said Svensson. “I was able to play my A game, was lined up, had a good process and threw a lot of good shots. I was comfortable.”
Hanrahan, the third seed, advanced to the title match with wins over Dom Barrett and Nick Pate before falling to Svensson.
“After my opening spare, I was able to put the pressure on Packy,” said Svensson. “I had the left lane hooking a little bit more and it seemed like we tried to attack it two different ways. This time, my way was more beneficial.”
Svensson now owns 11 PBA Tour titles including the 2016 PBA Tournament of Champions, during which he set the record as the youngest player ever to win that event.
