With a difference of $56,000 in scholarship funding on the line, Greg Young swept Ashley Dunn to win the Teen Masters Grand Championship, PBA reported in this news release.
Young, 16, beat Dunn, 15, 216-155 and 214-158 in the best-of-three-game title match at the special one-lane installation in Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal in New York on Wednesday night.
Young earned a $64,000 scholarship, while Dunn won an $8,000 scholarship.
How much pressure would you feel with that much difference in prize money? I know I'd love to find out!
The grand championship match featured the winners of the high school boys and girls divisions.
“The feeling is unreal,” Young said in the PBA release. “I’m looking at the $64,000 check and seeing my future in college. I’m not sure what it will be, but I have a couple of years to decide.”
The Teen Masters featured long and short oil patterns. Young won a coin toss for the right to choose which lane condition would be used for the grand championship match and chose the long pattern, PBA reported. The tournament also limited the players to the same two Ebonite bowling ball models throughout the tournament.
More details and results are in the release.
