favorite Stuart Williams of England, who has spent the past year competing on the PBA Tour in the United States.

Currently a student at Wichita University in the United States, truly a bowling dedicated school winner’s of the National Collegiate Championships last April for the third successive year, Berndt is the son of a very famous Swedish international, Yvonne (Nilsson) Berndt, winner of three gold, two silver and a bronze medal in European and World Championships.

This is Berndt’s second Malta Open, coming here for the first time last year. “This is such a beautiful place, the island itself is wonderful. It is nice that this is such a great tournament and if you’re good enough you can win funds to pay for the trip. The bowling season has quietened down a little bit in the United States, so it is nice to travel.

“I struggled with my first game today. I just had a 160 and couldn’t find a decent consistent line to the pocket. Then I watched some of the other bowlers to see where they were playing. I made a couple of adjustments and then had a 207-247-2250-203 and 290. ”

The total of 1356 gave Berndt top place on the leader board and a sponsor prize of €100 for that position.

This was the first of two six-game blocks. The qualifying is over 12 games with the option of a re-entry to better one of the blocks if so desired.
