    After leading the 2007 and 2008 European Bowling Tour rankings and his victory in the inaugural EBT Masters, Osku Palermaa, Finland, became the top-ranked amateur bowler in the world as he claimed the 9th World Ranking Masters at Oltremare Bowling Arena in Naples, Italy. In a high-scoring men's final in bets-of-three games format, the two-hander defeated equally-tough Norwegian Tore Torgersen, 259-234 and 248-238 for a 2-0 victory. Palermaa (l.) received $10.000 and Torgersen (r.) pocketed 5.000.
