Anthony Pepe Takes Home Tournament of Champions Title

  • Nov 21, 2021

On Sunday, Anthony Pepe continued to show how talented a bowler he is by wining his fourth Tournament of Champions. Pepe has been victorious against the strongest field of the year in 2012, 2015, 2017 and now 2021. He qualified third with games of 217, 233, 208, 216 and 212 for 1086. Pepe was the only person who shot 200+ every game on the demanding conditions. The 2-game matches proved to be some of the lowest scoring in many years with less than half shooting plus in the four rounds. Pepe won 376-346 over Randy Hagemoser, 379-358 over Alex Cavagnaro and 418-372 against Frankie Calca in the semi-finals. The championship match was the only match both bowlers shot 400+ with Pepe saving his highest set for last to give him a 472-403 victory over Ryan Graywacz.
