Congratulations to this awesome young lady, Team Turbo Staff member Danielle McEwan.
As top qualifier Danielle turned back Stuart Williams, another Team Turbo Staff member, in a two-game championship match to win the PBA International-WBT Thailand at Blu-O Rhythm and Bowl Paragon (Bangkok, Thailand) on Friday.
McEwan, a four-time PWBA titlist, won the six-game qualifying round to earn the top berth in the eight-player stepladder finals by seven pins over Malaysia’s Rafiq Ismail, taking advantage of the eight handicap pins per game awarded to women in the tournament.
Williams, who qualified third, defeated Kyle Troup, 182-173, and Ismail, 206-205, to advance to the title match where he needed to beat McEwan twice to win the event. Williams won the first game, 232-218, but McEwan won the second, 225-179, to claim the $31,908 first prize.
McEwan is a PBA member, but won’t receive credit for a PBA title because she accepted the handicap pins.
