-37th AMF Bowling World Cup - Men's First 8 Games

11/04/2001 - AMF Bowling
      PATTAYA, Thailand -- Benny Dytoc, a 36-year-old bowling pro shop operator from Quezon City in the Philippines, plundered the lanes Sunday night to grab the lead after eight games in the men's competition at the 37th AMF Bowling World Cup, underway at P.S. Bowling Pattaya in Pattaya, Thailand.

      Dytoc, a lefthander nicknamed "The Dragon," averaged 236.5 on the strength of an eight-game series of 1,892 pins to take a 66-pin lead over Daniel Falconi of Mexico. Falconi averaged 228.25 for eight games with 1,826 pins.

      Dytoc, who won a gold medal with the Philippines national team in this year's South East Asian Games in Malaysia, said he thought the World Cup conditions were a little easier than those he encountered in the SEA Games. "I thought the condition for lefthanders was a little tighter there than what I found today. Both sides, right and left, are scoring well right now."

      As to feeling the pressure of being the tournament leader, Dytoc said, "I don't think of it as pressure. It's more of a compliment from the Lord, because I leave everything up to him. Some bowlers get very emotional when they play, but I try just to have a good time."

      Anders Ohman of Sweden, who led after the first eight-game block Sunday afternoon, is in sixth place with 1,775 pins and a 221.88 average. Ohman had Sunday's high single game with his score of 280.

      "I have been playing well the last year, so I think I have a good chance in this tournament," Ohman said. "The line that I played—down and in—is my 'A' game, so I was able to get comfortable very quickly.

      Competition began following the Opening Ceremonies at P.S. Bowling Pattaya Sunday afternoon, at which Thailand's minister of science, technology and the environment, Sontaya Kunpleum, declared the tournament open with a ceremonial ribbon cutting.

      The women's division rolls its first eight games Monday, beginning at 8 a.m. The men return to the lanes Monday afternoon for their second eight-game block. Eighty-seven countries are represented in this year's AMF Bowling World Cup, one shy of the mark set in 2000 in Lisbon, Portugal.

      Eight countries are represented in the tournament for the first time: Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Cote d'Ivoire, Kazakhstan, Laos, St. Helena, Syria, Vietnam.
