Liz Johnson Beats Wes Malott In U.S. Open's First-Ever "Battle Of The Sexes" Special Final Match

Malott, who lost to Australian two-hander Jason Belmonte in the championship match of the 2013 United States Bowling Congress Masters, got redemption and the coveted U.S. Open green jacket by defeating Belmonte, 214-156, on Saturday.

"The biggest thing I wanted to put on my resume was a major title," said Malott, who struck on 22 of 34 shots in three matches. "This is the most prestigious tournament in our sport, I think, because of the demanding lane conditions and all of the pressure, and I don't even know that it's all sunk in yet."

The 2013 Lipton Bowling's U.S. Open included the best men and women bowlers in the world competing side by side (in separate events) at three Columbus-area bowling centers – Wayne Webb's Columbus Bowl, Columbus Western Bowl and Holiday Lanes.  The combined U.S. Open events featured a prize fund of more than $400,000.

"Liz and Wes both made the sport of bowling proud this week.  The grit, perseverance and tenacity that both demonstrated is a great credit to our sport. Simply put, Liz and Wes both personify what it means to be a champion," said Steve Johnson, executive director of the BPAA. 

Added Johnson, "Today was also a special moment in the history of the U.S. Open. By winning the first-ever 'Battle of the Sexes,' Liz has carved her own place in sports history, a great milestone for bowling and professional sports."

The 2013 Bowling's U.S. Open was supported by title sponsor 100% Natural Lipton Iced Tea, and presenting sponsors The Brands of Ebonite & Columbia 300, Brunswick Bowling & Billiards, Jani-King, Storm Bowling Products and Roto Grip.
