Showboat PBA Doubles Classic



$150,000 SHOWBOAT PBA DOUBLES CLASSIC
Showboat Bowling Center, Las Vegas, Nev., May 30-Jun 3, 1989

Triple Dip For Aulby/Cook

"We now have to be considered one of the all-time but doubles teams," Mike Aulby said, immediately after he and partner Steve Cook won for the third time in the $150,000 Showboat PBA Doubles Classic at Showboat Bawling Center.

Aulby and Cook defeated Parker Bohn III and Duane Fisher, 214-177, for the championship and $30,000 first prize, to go along with their triumphs here as teammates in 1985 and '86. Leading qualifiers for this Scotch doubles format, Aulby/Cook opened with a five-bagger and never looked back.

Cook, Roseville, Calif., said, "It's nice to finally go from my 13th to 14th title; I know Mike had been stuck on number 13 for a while. I was a little rusty to begin the week, but Mike held us together until I finally got my act together in the finals."

Bohn, Freehold, N.J., and Fisher, Pennsauken, N.J., had just come off a 278-204 semifinal win against Ray Perez and Jimmy Keeth. "But the left lane was tricky," Bohn said afterward, "and we never felt confident in the championship game. I tried to fit the ball into the pocket, but it obviously didn't work."
