In this ninth installment of a weekly series taking a look back at historical moments from various USBC championship events over the years, we revisit the 1993 USBC Masters in Tulsa, Okla., where two of the "50 Greatest Players in PBA History" faced off for the coveted title.

The clip features 22-year-old amateur Patrick Allen, who bowled his way into the final only to run into a determined Norm Duke, who fired a 258 game to claim the first of his six major championships.

Nearly two decades later, Duke is a PBA Hall of Famer with 33 titles and two Player of the Year honors, while Allen, the 2004-05 PBA Player of the Year, owns 13 titles, including two majors.
