With the Malaysians returning to the tour this year, they proved to be a force to reckon with after seven of them made the Top 16. The all-Malaysian women's final was a closely fought match with nothing seperating the duo mid-way through the match.
Although Hee Kar Yen had an early double in the third and fourth frames, Koh responded with a double of her own in the fourth and fifth frames to draw level. Koh rolled another double to open a small gap and struck twice again in the tenth and 11th frames to seal victory.
"I'm glad to have the opportunity to bowl in the tour starting this year after our congress has given the go ahead," said Koh, who earned the top prize of US$1,000 for her victory. "It was a really close match against Kar Yen but I'm glad I came out on top."
The champion reached the finals after beating Tannya Roumimper of Indonesia, 224-204 in the second semi-final match while Hee had an easy victory over another Indonesian, Novie Phang, 191-148 in the first semi.
