Sam Cooley, Shayna Ng win China Open from top seed

The top players, Sam Cooley of Australia and Singapore’s Shayna Ng captured the men’s and women’s titles in the China International Open Tenpin Bowling Championship 2016 Wednesday at Hao’s Bowling Center in Shanghai, China.

While Ng (above left) made quick work of her compatriot Cherie Tan in the women’s finale, 223-205, Cooley (above right) defeated Wang Shizhen of China in the deciding game, 232-199, after losing the first game, 154-212. As the top Cooley had to be defeated twice to win the title.

The Aussie, who won the Asian Bowling Federation Thailand leg earlier this season, pocketed 68,000 Renminbi Yuan or approximately US$10,125 for the victory, while Ng earned 30,000 RMB ($4,466).

By virtue of finishing the 15-game qualifying portion in the top 5 of the overseas pool, Cooley (4th) and Ng (1st) missed the first six-game round of the finals which trimmed the field to 30 men and 18 women, who bowled another six-game block from scratch in Round 2 before the cut to the top six who determined the champions in the stepladder finals.

Cooley averaged 226 to lead the men’s finalists and Ng averaged 215.83 to earn the women’s top seed.
