20th Century Lanes, Portland, Oregon, Sep 19-22, 1963

It's Cox By A "Spare"

Darylee Cox hastily admits the Great Northwest is "my country."

The 33-year-old Cox lives in Bellingham, Wash., won his first PBA championship at Spokane in 1962 and racked up his second title in the $20,400 City of Roses tournament at Portland.

Of course, another factor which influences Darylee's thinking on "my country" was the way he won at Portland. Bowling Billy Hardwick in the final game, Cox finished with 192. Hardwick went into his last frame needing only a spare to win. Billy got nine pins on his first fling, leaving the ten pin. Then, to the amazement of the entire packed throng in attendance, Hardwick missed the spare. The final score: 192-182.

Hardwich slipped to third and collected $1,200. Cox not only won the first prize of $3,000, but a new car as well. That missed ten pin cost Billy "The Kid" $4,000.

Leading money winner Andy Marzich picked up $550 for finishing 14th. This upped his earnings to $28,248 for the year. Harry Smith was No. 2 with $26,107, Jim St. John had $25,635, Dick Weber $24,258 and Earl Johnson $24,152.
