Las Vegas PBA Open



$25,000 LAS VEGAS PBA OPEN
Showboat Lanes, Las Vegas, Nevada, Oct 16-18, 1963

Weber Wins At Vegas

After losing the tournament by one pin the week before in Salt Lake City, Dick Weber won the $25,000 Las Vegas Open.

It was the 12th PBA tournament victory overall for the 125-pounder from St. Louis. It was his second win in 1963. Earlier he had taken the New Jersey Open.

Weber bowled consistently throughout the Las Vegas test. After finishing seventh in the 24-game qualifier, the slim Weber moved up steadily to take over the lead after four rounds in match game play.

Dick lost the lead momentarily but regained it in the eighth round and was never headed. At the end he was 15 pins better than Bill Johnson of Kansas City.
