Earl Anthony PBA Open



$125,000 EARL ANTHONY PBA OPEN
Earl Anthony's Dublin Bowl, Dublin, Calif., May 19-23, 1992

Nothing Shady About Mike's Victory

Mike Shady guaranteed Memorial Day weekend 1992 would be memorable. Shady, Ripon, Wis., improved one position from his '91 finish and upended leading qualifier Parker Bohn III, 247-178, to win his first title in the $125,000 Earl Anthony PBA Open at Earl Anthony's Dublin Bowl. Shady earned the $18,000 first prize and qualified for a berth in the Firestone Tournament of Champions with his victory.

Second-seeded Shady opened in the first frame of both of his championship round games and tacked on a seven-bagger in the title game against Bohn, who had earned the leading qualifier position by nearly 300 pins. Bohn, Freehold, N.J., collected $9,500 as runnerup.

In the opening game of ESPN's first PBA championship round telecast of the year, Dave Traber defeated newlywed Scott Devers of Richmond, Ind., 255-188. Traber then continued against Mark Turney, Corpus Christi, Texas, 227-221, before falling to Shady in the semifinal, 245-234. Traber, Woodstock, Ill., earned $7,000 for third place, Turney cashed for $5,500 and Devers $4,500, which he applied toward a belated Hawaiian honeymoon.
