Ouschan ends season on a high by winning the 2009 WPBA Championship

2009 WBPA ChampionshipAustria's Jasmin Ouschan won the season-ending 2009 WPBA Championship.

In the final she beat Xiaoting Pan (China) 7-2.

The semifinals saw Ouschan edge Jeanette Lee (USA) 7-6 while Pan beat Kelly Fisher (England) in a 7-2 drubbing.

This was Oushan's first WPBA Championship win, her third victory of the season, and her fifth Classic Tour title in total. She was unbeaten in the tournament and apart from the semi-final thriller she was really never threatened.

Defending champion Monica Webb (USA) finished tied 17th after losing 7-6 to countrywoman Michell Monk.

Ouschan improved from fourth to second in the rankings for the 2009 Classic Tour. Pan dropped from second to third. Nobody could surpass Ga Young Kim (South Korea) though who won her first overall title. Last year's winner Kelly Fisher finished just outside the top four.

The event took place from November 12-15 2009 at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino, Hollywood, Florida, USA. It was the last of six events this season on the Classic Tour.
