2019 PBA World Bowling Tour Finals Women's & Men's Event

Liz Johnson & EJ Tackett Win World Bowling Tour – Women’s, Men’s Finals Titles

The 2019 PBA WBT Women’s and Men’s Finals, presented by the PBA, aired last Sunday (10 Mar 2019) on FS1, concluding a year-long global competition. Liz Johnson of Palatine, Ill., won the women’s title, defeating top qualifier Danielle McEwan of Stony Point, N.Y., 246-223, for her first WBT Finals win in six tries.

Tackett, who made his WBT Men’s Finals debut after winning the all-events gold medal in the World Bowling Men’s Championships in Hong Kong, eliminated England’s Stuart Williams in another single-pin thriller, 243-242, before spoiling Simonsen’s 22nd birthday, 233-232, in the title match.

The WBT Finals again used World Bowling’s experimental “current frame” scoring system where a strike counted for 30 pins, a spare counted for 10 plus the first-ball count, and an open frame counted for actual pins knocked down. The 10th frame counted the same as all other frames.
