The island’s most lucrative bowling tournament is Sunday.

The third Pro-Build Championship Tournament begins 11 a.m. at Tropic Lanes.

The tournament showcases a pair of oil patterns that are used on the Professional Bowlers Association tour and are much more difficult than what bowlers see during league play.

The bowler who can figure out the lanes the best walks away with a first-place prize of $1,000 — but that amount could go down if there are fewer than 40 bowlers.

Mario Lledo won last year’s tournament and cashed in $775, while Ray Basuel won the inaugural tournament in 2011.

This is a handicap tournament with each bowler rolling four games. The top 16 scores advance to a single-elimination bracket, which will be bowled on a different oil pattern than the first four games.
