Allen Wins 8th Career PBA Title with Angular One
Jan 08, 2007
After making a move back to the Ebonite ball line and the new Angular One, Patrick Allen has found himself back on top, winning his eighth career PBA Title Sunday.
A former PBA Player of the Year who has been throwing balls from one of Ebonite’s competitors this season, resigned his pro staff contract in December and switched to Ebonite over the two-week holiday break. And, the results are obvious. Allen defeated Walter Ray Williams, Jr., 255-247, on the Chameleon oil pattern and took home $25,000 at the 2007 H&R Block Classic held at the National Bowling Stadium.
“There were some issues with me the first half of the season and I made a bold change,” Allen told PBA.com. “I had to do it to get back here. I didn’t think it would happen this soon.”
“I am especially thankful to Ebonite and Ed Gallagher for supporting me and giving me the tools I need to be back in the winner’s circle once again.”
Allen, a left-hander from Wesley Chapel, Fla., is known for his aggressive style of play. Named the 2004-05 PBA Player of the Year, winning back-to-back titles as well as his first Major, PA, as he is called on Tour, also finished in the top five in all four Majors and became the first bowler in history to accomplish the feat since the USBC Masters became an official Tour event in 1998. PA’s $350,740 in earnings in 2004-05 stands as the second-highest single-season earnings in Tour history.
