Norm Duke edged Steve Jaros by one pin Sunday to win the PBA Tour's Don Carter Classic.

Duke beat Jaros, 267-266, to win his 17th career title.

"This is the city I wanted to be victorious in," said Duke, who earned $20,000 for first place. "I feel I had an advantage over Jaros and it was time for me to win here."

The two PBA champions started the final game strong, both throwing strikes through the first six frames. Duke and Jaros each left one pin in the seventh frame before making spares.

Duke spared the next two frames, while Jaros rolled strikes. Jaros needed two strikes in the 10th frame to win. He was able to roll the first strike, but then left the 6-10 combination and only picked up the 6-pin.

Duke rolled two strikes in the 10th and picked up the necessary nine pins he needed to beat Jaros, who won $10,000.
