"I came here without any high expectations and my target was to make the top 8 finals," said 35-year-old Lai, whose only victory in the tour was the 2008 Indonesia leg. "I wanted to come and renew my friendship with some of the Asian bowlers.
"To go home with this victory is simply fantastic. I don't bowl as much as I use to when I was a national bowler so the win is beyond my expectation really."
Lai won US$10,000 as champion while Ng took home US$5,000 as runnerup. Both the losing semi-finalists settled for US$3,000 each. Hussain pocketed the biggest prize of US$20,000 for his victory.
Khaled won US$8,000 with Belmonte and Yousif settling for US$4,000 each for finishing third and fourth positions. The top 16 men and top 16 women had qualified for the tournament of champions through eight legs contested in 2010.
Mr Kevin Dornberger, WTBA president presented the trophy to the women champion while Sheikh Talal Al-Sabah, ABF and Kuwait Bowling Federation president gave away the trophy to the men champion.
