PETALING JAYA: Malaysian bowling queen Shalin Zulkifli made a swift return to form on the US Professional Women Bowling Association (PWBA) Tour by finishing a creditable 20th at the Louisville Open.
A week after missing the cut in the previous week’s Greater Nashville Open in Tennessee, Shalin bounced back to reach the top 32 at the Executive Strike and Spare in Kentucky on Saturday.
The 43-year-old chalked up a 3,736 pins grand total but it was not enough for her to advance into the top 12 battle after missing the cut by 109 pins.
Shalin has now claimed two top-20 finishes in her last three outings, including her 17th placing at the BVL Open in New York three weeks ago.
The Louisville Open was won by Ukrainian Dasha Kovalova after defeating Missy Parkin of the United States 225-202.
The PWBA Tour will take a short break before returning with the PBA-PWBA Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles in Houston, Texas from July 29-Aug 1.
