Lee Jung Soo of Korea and Nora Lyana Natasia of Malaysia remained undefeated in the four single-elimination matches to win their first title on the Asian Bowling Federation (ABF) Tour Sunday at COTAI Bowling Center in Macau, China.

Lee (right), who finished third in the Macau China International Open, which served as qualifying event for the ABFT Macau leg, dispatched Indonesian standout Ryan Lalisang (left), 219-195, to win the men’s title.

In an otherwise extremely high-scoring event, which was using the World Bowling Scoring System, Lalisang coasted to a 255-217 win in his semi-final match against Jimmy Cheung (right) of Hong Kong. In the other semi-final match, Lee took down Yuhi Shinbata (below left) of Japan, 276-256.

The finalists had some hard work to do to survive the opening round of 16. Lalisang edged James Lui of Hong Kong, 277-266, while Lee ousted Tony Wong of Hong Kong, 275-267.

Lalisang went on to defeat Thailand’s Kim Bolleby in the round of 8, 235-226, and Lee cruised to a 256-224 victory against Shoumick Datta of India, 256-224.

Macau China Open champion Pak Kyung Rok of Korea fell to Macau’s Lee Tak Man in the opening round, 278-245, and was eliminated.

Lee was awarded a trophy and US$500 for the victory. Lalisang received US$300, while Shinbata and Cheung earned US$150 each.

The opening round in the women’s division started with a bang. Futaba Imai (right) of Japan stole the spotlight in a high-scoring event as she connected on 10 consecutive shots to defeat against Alisha Iman Cheong of Malaysia, 300-223, the lone perfect game of the tournament.

Imai then sidelined her compatriot and Macau China Open champion Misaki Mukotani, 265-245, and fourth-place finisher Hee Kar Yen (left) of Malaysia, 278-255, to meet Malaysia’s Nora Lyana Natasia.

Natasia started her road to victory by defeating Kantaporn Singhabuboha of Thailand, 255-200. She then eliminated her fellow countrywoman and second runner-up in the Macau Open, Nerosha Keligit in the lone sub-200 match, 199-167, and survived the semifinal round with a 235-234 win over first runner-up Kim Hyun A (right) of Korea.

In the women’s title match, Imai was unable to match the vigorous pace she maintained during the previous rounds. She finished with her low game of 209 and fell to Natasia (left), who bowled her highest game (267) to cruise to the title.

Natasia also pocketed US$500 and was awarded a trophy by Ms Vivien Lau, ABF Tour Committee Chairman and World Bowling Secretary General. Imai got US$300 for second place, while Hee and Kim garnered US$150 each for third and fourth place.

The top 16 Asian men and women in the 2018 Macau China Open advanced to the ABF Tour Macau leg. The 2018 Asian Bowling Federation Tour features four legs in in East Asia in Thailand, Macau, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei.

The next stop will be in Hong Kong, China on July 1 following the 44th Hong Kong International Open Tenpin Bowling Championships, which serves as qualifying event. Both tournaments will be held at the South China Athletic Association (SCAA) Bowling Center.
