Meyers Mops Up At Seattle

Norm Meyers was the fair-haired boy at Seattle. The Los Angeles product outblasted Billy Welu of Houston by 260 pins to easily capture the PBA's Seattle Open.

This was Meyers' first big tournament win ever and the $3,000 first place check was his biggest payday.

There was little doubt about the outcome as the LA flash popped the most pins (8623) for the 40 games and tallied the highest won-lost record of 12-3-1 in match-game action.

Tom Hennessey caused quite a stir by winning his first eight matches in the finals to move from eighth to second in the standings. But "Tomcat" ran into difficulty in the last eight games to finish fifth. The St. Louis flash captured only three of his final eight games.

Andy Marzich didn't cash at Seattle but continued to lead the money winnings with $28,248. Harry Smith was second with $26,707, Jim St. John had $25,635, Dick Weber $25,083 and Billy Hardwick $24,755.
