Williams Wins 7th Player of the Year Award
At the age of 50, Walter Ray Williams Jr. swept every major statistical category during the 2009-10 PBA Tour season en route to a record seventh Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year honor. Williams also was named Bowler of the Decade for the second consecutive decade – a feat unprecedented in the sports world. A season earlier Williams became the first player to surpass $4 million in PBA career earnings and in 2016 became the first player in PBA history to win a combined total of 100 PBA titles at all levels when he teamed up with Dick Allen and Dennis Lane to win the PBA South Region’s PBA/PBA50/PBA60 Decker Appraisal Services Baker Trio title. As the PBA50 player in the group, Williams won his 10th PBA50 Regional title to go along with 47 PBA Tour titles, 32 PBA Regional titles and 11 PBA50 Tour titles.
