Paul Moor, Joline Persson Planefors capture 2017 EBT Masters

Third-seeded Paul Moor of England and Sweden’s Joline Persson Planefors both climbed the ladder to win the men’s and women’s title in the 10th EBT Masters which concluded the 2016 European Bowling Tour season Monday at Lovvang Bowling Center in Aalborg, Denmark.

It was the third Masters title for Moor after 2009 and 2015 and the first for Persson Planefors. The champions earned 3.000 Euro apiece for accomplishing the feat.

Moor (left), the EBT’s all-time leader in wins with 17 titles, finished the 12-game preliminaries in third place with 2541 total, edging PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III, United States, for the last spot to advance to the stepladder finals by just 13 pins.

In the opening match, Moor ousted Daniel Fransson of Sweden, 198-167. Fransson (right), who won his lone EBT title in the Hammer Bronzen Schietspoel Tournament 2016, received 1.500 Euro for third place.

Left-handed Moor went on to defeat two-hander Osku Palermaa of Finland, 213-204. Palermaa (left), who ranks second all-time on the European Bowling Tour with 13 titles, earned the top seed with 2554 pinfall total and an average of 212.83 for 12 games. Palermaa, who won the inaugural EBT Masters in 2008 and finished third in the last two events, pocketed 2.000 Euro for second place.

On the women’s side, Joline Persson Planefors (right), the women’s EBT point ranking leader in the 2011 and 2013 seasons, edged her fellow countrywoman Ida Andersson for the last spot in the finals by mere five pins, 2443 to 2438.

Top-seeded Jenny Wegner, also of Sweden, and second-placed Bernice Lim of Singapore played in their own class and were 177 and 170 pins, respectively, ahead of Persson Planefors.

In a high-scoring opening match, Persson Planefors eliminated Lim (left), winner of the PWBA “major” 2016 USBC Queens, 247-213, for the right to bowl Wegner for the title. Persson Planefors edged the reigning World Cup champion, 188-185, to wrap up the title.

The EBT Masters treats men and women equally. Persson Planefors received 3.000 Euro for first place, Wegner (right) got 2.000 Euro for second place and Lim took home 1.500 Euro for third place.

The 10th EBT Masters, which featured a 28.000 Euro prize fund (14.000 per gender), was the season-ending event of the 2016 European Bowling Tour. The top 50 men and the top 50 women in each event earned ranking points based on how they finished in the events.

Those points were tabulated throughout the season to determine the top 12 men and top 12 women who qualified for the EBT Masters. All players bowled 12 games in two six-game blocks with the top 3 advancing to the stepladder finals.
