2017 PBA-WBT World Bowling Tour Thailand
September 30 - October 6, 2017  Blu-O Rhythm & Bowl Paragon, Bangkok, Thailand
Fourth and sixth runner-ups for Indonesians

6th October, Bangkok: 5th AIMAG Singles silver medallist, Tannya Roumimper and 29th SEA Games Team silver medallist, Ryan Lalisang ended their 2017 PBA-World Bowling Tour Thailand campaign in fifth and seventh positions respectively.

Roumimper, who finished sixth in the earlier Round 4 Finals, defeated seventh-seed and three-time PBA-WBT Thailand TV finalist, Ryan Ciminelli of Cheektogawa, N.Y., USA and compatriot, Lalisang, 244-228-233 in the opening TV Final match.

In the second match against fourth-seed and defending champion, Jesper Svensson of Sweden and fifth-seed, Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., USA, Roumimper was leading at the eighth frame with a strike. Svensson ended with three consecutive strikes and a six-pin count while Jones could only post 199.

The Indonesian struck again in the ninth and all she need was a mark in her final frame to take victory. A stubborn pin 10 stood in her way and a simple spare would do the job. But to her disappointment, she missed the spare thus ending with 194 plus an 8-pin handicap gave her only 202, handing the match to the Swede.

Svensson went on to dispatch third-seed and 2013 PBA-World Bowling Tour Thailand champion, Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., USA, 258-227. The defending champion also ousted second-seed and 2012 PBA-World Bowling Tour Thailand first runner-up, Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, 248-222.

Second runner-up, Barnes took home 300,000 baht with Rash and Roumimper earning 200,000 and 100,000 baht respectively. Jones, Lalisang and Ciminelli pocketed 90,000, 85,000 and 80,000 baht. The tour featured a total of 4.25 million baht (approx. US$132,000) in prize money.

Indonesia's Billy Muhammad Islam and Hardy Rachmadian crashed out in Round 2 Finals while Sharon Limansantoso advanced to Round 3 finishing fourth. But Limansantoso missed the cut for Round 4 by 11 pins after she finished in 13th position. Hengki Susanto also failed to advance finishing in 19th position.

Roumimper advance finishing in tenth position and then made the Final TV Round in sixth position while Lalisang rolled two massive games in the fifth and sixth to clinch the eighth and last TV Finals spot. Lalisang qualified in second overall to skip two rounds while Roumimper and Hengki skipped one round.
