Japan Cup 2003 Set for Mid-September

by PBA Editor June 8, 2003 19:00
Sixteen Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour players will travel to Japan for the 19th Annual Japan Cup, Sept. 18-21. The top 15 point earners from last season along with defending champion Robert Smith will represent the PBA/U.S. contingent in the prestigious event at Tokyo Port Bowl. This year, the invitational will not count toward PBA season points (which begin accruing in October). However, players will continue to receive credit for all other statistics (title, money, etc.). The championship round will be televised in Japan on NHK-TV and the winner receives $40,000. Last year, Smith picked up the Japan Cup championship as a first-timer. The powerful right-hander finished 24th in 2002-03 PBA Points and needed the defending champion exemption to get in this year’s field, displacing 16th ranked Brian Kretzer. The title has been claimed by a PBA player 16 times and consecutively since 1989. PBA Players qualified for 2003 include past champions Parker Bohn III (2000, 1999, 1998, 1992), Pete Weber (1986, 1993), Walter Ray Williams Jr. (1991), Brian Voss (1994) and Smith. Players making their first trip include Lonnie Waliczek, 2003 PBA Rookie of the Year Brad Angelo, 2002 PBA Rookie of the Year Tommy Jones and Patrick Allen. In addition to individual Japan Cup honors, the PBA/U.S. Team will once again be pitted against the Japan Professional Bowlers Association/International Team in the battle for the Nakano Cup. The Nakano Cup is awarded to the team with the highest average for 32 games. The PBA/U.S. Team has won the Nakano Cup each year since its inception in 1994. For the second consecutive year, four international qualifiers will represent the 16-man JPBA/International Team (yet to be determined) including two Korean professionals and one European amateur qualifier. The final spot will be determined at Dream Bowl 2003, the week prior to Japan Cup. Dream Bowl 2002 will be held at Shin-Yokohama Prince Hotel Bowling Center in Yokohama, Japan, Friday, Sept. 12, through Monday, Sept. 15. The highest finishing professional player not already qualified for the Japan Cup will earn the final spot on the JPBA/International Team. The tournament will be open to 10 additional PBA Members not already qualified for Japan Cup (entry priority based on points). For PBA Members, Dream Bowl 2003 will be an exhibition tournament and will not count toward 2003-04 statistics.
