Seattle Coca-Cola PBA Open



$21,000 SEATTLE COCA-COLA PBA OPEN
Skyway Park Bowl, Seattle, Washington, Jun 18-21, 1964

McCoy Mops Up At Seattle

A new "conversational piece" entered the Professional Bowlers Association ranks when another lefthander, this time Jerry McCoy of Fort Worth, Tex., won the second PBA summer tournament in a row, the $21,000 Seattle Open.

Fresh on the heels of Bill Allen's triumph at San Jose the week before, McCoy's record-breaking performance over the first 24 games caused the righthanders to wonder. Especially so, since another lefty, Dave Davis of Phoenix, was second.

The square-built Texan tacked up a total of 5676 pins over the 24-game qualifying route as he led from the second six-game block through the finals. Jerry broke Billy Hardwick's mark of 5644 set in 1963 at Los Angeles.

This was McCoy's first major tournament victory although he had finished second to Bill Allen on successive weeks during the Winter tour ---- at Mobile and New Orleans.

Allen finished sixth and moved into the No. 2 spot in the 1964 money-making race with earnings of $19,323. Hardwick retained No. 1 honors at $20,010, Bob Strampe was third with $18,900, McCoy had $15,200 and Wayne Zahn was fifth with $13,865.
