AHMAD Aidil Abdul Halim showed he was the pick of the crop when he was crowned the Georgetown Durian Masters bowling tournament champion at the Mega Lanes Bowl in Seberang Prai, Penang.
The 22-year-old bowler from Kuala Lumpur opted to don Penang colours for the tournament.
Ahmad Aidil, who has been working in Penang for six years, gained inspiration from his 1,899-pin achievement in the earlier eight-game qualifier.
He easily powered past Singapore's Ong She-Na 228-170 in the one-frame stepladder final.
“I have not felt so good in a long time, thanks to the improvement I managed to display in my second shot at the crown.
“I managed only fourth place at last year’s tournament.
“Making the cut to the stepladder final drove me to step up my performance,” he said after picking up the top purse of RM7,000 recently.
Ahmad Aidil has now set himself a new target and aims to train harder with the hope of winning honours in the Professional Bowlers Association tournaments in the near future.
He also did not hide his desire to win the Men's Open at the Pesta Pulau Pinang Bowling championship later this year.
Ong had earlier disposed off her third-placed rival Wan Asnol Anuar from Kedah with an overwhelming 368-165 win for second place.
