WILLIAMS ROUTS LIZZI FOR PBA NATIONAL TITLE

Walter Ray Williams Jr. won the PBA Tour's PBA National Championship on Sunday, beating Jeff Lizzi, 258-204, in the title game.

Williams, the five-time PBA player of the year, earned $25,000 for his 33rd career title.

"My goal is to win every week, regardless of how much importance is placed on each tournament," Williams said.

Williams, a PBA Hall of Famer, needs only the Tournament of Champions title to become the fifth player in PBA history to complete the Triple Crown (T of C, PBA National Championship, U.S. Open). The victory also gave Williams his third career major title (U.S. Open, 1998; Touring Players Championship, 1994).

In the semifinal match, Lizzi beat Tommy Delutz Jr. on their third one-shot roll-off, 10-9, after tying, 239-239.
