A Classic in the Making – The Largest Pin Differential / Lowest Score in a PBA Televised Match!
The largest pin differential in a PBA televised match occurred when Mika Koivuniemi defeated Tom Daugherty, 299-100, in the 2011 PBA Tournament of Champions at Red Rock in Las Vegas. Daugherty’s 100 remains the lowest score bowled on a PBA national telecast while Koivuniemi joined Don Johnson (1970) as the second bowler to shoot 299 in the TOC televised finals. He then defeated Tom Smallwood, 269-207, to become the first international player to win the TOC. The historical event featured the first $1 million purse in PBA history and a $250,000 first prize. It was the first live PBA event aired on ABC Television since 1997.
