    Absolutely Awesome.

    FINAL: Paul Moor 524-566 Jason Belmonte
    JASON Belmonte is the 2007 World Tenpin Masters Champion after defeating Paul Moor in a thrilling final.

    In the best match in the 10-year history of the competition, Belmonte threw a perfect 300 game and then followed it up with 266 to end on an incredible total of 566.

    Moor himself played superbly to register 524 but Belmonte produced a near-flawless performance to clinch the trophy.

    After three days of top quality bowling the final of the 2007 World Tenpin Masters was between Paul Moor of England and Jason Belmonte.

    Both players had played superbly to reach this stage as Moor defeated Biboy Rivera (Philippines), Alex Liew (Malaysia) and Remy Ong (Singapore), while Belmonte recorded successes against Jens Nickel (Germany), Badr Al Sheikh (Saudi Arabia) and 2006 winner Chris Barnes (USA).

    There was a great deal at stake as the winner of this match would collect $30,000, compared to $10,000 that goes to the runner-up. Also up for grabs was the honour of being World Tenpin Masters champion and winning one of the most prestigious competitions in world tenpin bowling.

    As expected the match was of a top standard as both players recorded strikes with each of their first three balls. Moor and Belmonte maintained this standard through their next three as they had each recorded six successive strikes and both were halfway towards a perfect 300 game.

    The first error came in Moor's seventh frame as he hit the first spare of the match, to give Belmonte a chance to move ahead. He accepted this opportunity as he moved up to nine successive strikes and only three balls away from a 300. The tenth and 11th balls followed in the same fashion so he had an attempt at the perfect game.

    He was successful as the crowd went wild as Belmonte hit perfection. It became only the second 300 game in the history of the World Tenpin Masters, but, ironically, the first one was also made by Belmonte, in the 2005 competition.

    The second game began in exactly the same fashion with another six strikes - three for each player. But the turning point came in Moor's fourth and fifth frames as he registered two successive spares as the trophy looked to be heading to Belmonte.

    In an incredible performance, Belmonte hit a further three strikes for six in the second game and 18 out of 18 in total. However, the run had to come to an end and it did in Belmonte's seventh frame of the second game. It was also an open frame to give Moor hope of clinching a remarkable turnaround, although he had to overhaul a 40-pin difference.

    But Belmonte was too good and made no further mistakes as he hit 23 strikes out of a possible 24 to become the 2007 World Tenpin Masters Champion.

    A magnificent 300 in the first of the 2-game Final of the 2007 World Tenpin Masters, followed by another stunning near-perfect second game delivered Australia’s JASON BELMONTE one of the most sought-after titles in the sport of bowling.

    It was only the second 300 game in the history of the World Tenpin Masters but, ironically, Belmonte also recorded the first one, during the 2005 event.

    Runner-up, Paul Moor from Hull in England advanced from his semi-final match at Yorkshire’s Barnsley Metrodome after a dramatic final ball, single pin victory over Singapore’s Remy Ong (472-471), while Belmonte had earlier cruised to a Finals berth by overcoming American pro-bowler and defending champion, Chris Barnes (523-490) in a classic semi-final that saw the highest aggregate total in World Tenpin Masters history. This record was then eclipsed in what has already been described as the best match in the ten-year history of this prestigious tournament, that’s televised internationally.

    In a powerful performance, Belmonte threw a further six strikes but this run came to an end in the seventh frame of his second game. It was also an open frame, giving Moor the chance of staging a remarkable turnaround. However, Belmonte was too good and made no further mistakes, shooting 23 strikes out of a possible 24 to claim the title of 2007 World Tenpin Masters Champion (566-524).

    “There should have been a big notice on the front door of the Barnsley Metrodome this afternoon, announcing something along the lines of 'Ladies & Gentlemen, this afternoon Jason Belmonte of Australia will be holding a master class on the skills of Tenpin Bowling',” quipped BJI reporter, Keith Hale. “Nobody and nothing could withstand the onslaught of the high revving bowling ball from (Jason’s) unique delivery, so powerful that maybe the pinsetter has moved back a few inches after his six games today,” he added.

    The victory caps an incredibly successful six months for Belmonte, after back to back wins in December at the Brunswick Australian Cup, followed by the 2006 Brunswick Youth Cup, the 7th Milo International All Stars in Kuala Lumpur, Captain of the winning 'Rest of the World' team at the inaugural Canon Cup in Malaysia last month and - his previous highlight - Champion of the 2007 HIGH ROLLER tournament in Las Vegas. Today's achievement has not only re-written the World Tenpin Masters record books, but has also lifted Belmonte's perfect game tally to 26.
