The championship match of the PBA China Tiger Cup Invitational will air Tuesday at 4 p.m. Eastern on FloBowling. Bowling fans will be able to watch Sean Rash and AJ Johnson battle for the $20,000 first-place prize.

The event, which took place last week in Suzhou, China, featured seven of the top players from the FloBowling PBA Summer Tour competing in mainland China for the first time in PBA history.

Rash and Johnson survived three rounds of bracket play to reach the championship match at Suzhou Tiger Bowling Center just outside Shanghai.

The event began with a seeding round with nine players from the region joining the seven PBA Tour players in the 16-bowler field. After the three-game round, the players were seeded into a single-elimination best-of-three bracket.

Rash, the fourth seed, defeated LiangXin Wang, 2-0, in his opening round match with wins of 237-202 and 220-168. In the second round, Rash took down Min Zhang, 256-234 and 246-202, in a 2-0 sweep.

Rash survived a tough semifinal match against Cheuk Yun Mak, 2-1. After winning the first game 210-174, Rash lost the second game 268-225 and rebounded to take the deciding game 258-191.

Johnson entered the bracket as the No. 14 seed after struggling in the seeding round and took down Bill O’Neill, 2-0, in the opening round of match play. Johnson crushed O’Neill, 279-174 and 200-146.

Johnson then beat Kyle Sherman, 2-0, with wins of 256-222 and 256-211, to move into the semifinal. He picked up his third consecutive sweep by dispatching Jun Su, 2-0, after wins of 227-181 and 203-171 to reach the final.
