Charlie's the Champ

Tapp rolled a 198 in the final game against David Ozio's 190 to take the match, 2-0, after Ozio left a solid 10 pin in the 10th frame and missed the spare to lose the match.

“I figured there was going to be another game, and it just happened to work out the way it worked out,” said Tapp, who was prepared to continue bowling, expecting Ozio to make the spare and push the match to a deciding game three. “I never thought in my wildest dreams that he’d miss that spare.”

Tapp won his first PBA Senior Tour title last year in the PBA Senior Jackson Open, marking the second year in a row that Tapp has won the last event of the season. Henry Gonzalez (Colorado Springs, Colo.) captured his first two PBA Senior Tour titles in the first event of the last two seasons.

“The last three weeks I bowled really, really well,” said Tapp. “It all worked out in the end.”

Both Ozio and Tapp swept their semifinal matches, 2-0, and both finished with identical pinfalls of 6,210 for 28 games.

Linda Kelly (Dayton, Ohio), the first woman to compete in a PBA Senior Tour event, placed ninth overall.

The event marks the final tournament of the 2006 PBA Senior Tour season.
