CANADIAN BOWLER SAVOURS HISTORIC PRO VICTORY
Graham Fach arrived home Tuesday, bringing US$40,000 with him. The 24-year-old left-hander from Guelph, Ont., made history in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday when he became the first Canadian to win a Professional Bowlers Association Tour title. And Fach did it in just his second PBA Tour event, defeating American Ryan Ciminelli 279-244 to win the Barbasol Players Championship at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl. The victory, in an event considered to be one of the PBA Tour’s majors, also earned him an offer for a sponsorship contract from a bowling ball manufacturer.
