The 33-year-old Cherie earned US$50,000 in prize money for her efforts.
Singapore’s Cherie Tan finished runner-up in the Professional Women’s Bowling Association (PWBA) US Women’s Open on Tuesday (Aug 31).
The US Women’s Open is the second major championship on the 2021 PWBA Tour.
The 33-year-old narrowly lost in the final, which was held in California, to top-seed American, Josie Barnes, by a score of 198-194. For her efforts, Cherie will take home US$50,000 (S$67,300) in prize money.
In 2019, Cherie made history by becoming the first Singaporean crowned Masters champion at the World Bowling women’s championships, alongside being the first Asian to win the PWBA Players Championship.
She was voted World Bowling Athlete of the Year by the international bowling community and public in January 2020.
In a Facebook post celebrating her achievements, the Singapore Bowling Federation declared it as a “proud moment for Singapore”.
