Martineau A Home Town Boy
Gary Martineau, a two-year traveler on the PBA tournament tour, finally made it big in the big time . . . And, he did it in his home town.

It was a squeaker all the way with Martineau, Tountas and Ted Hoffman battling for the lead. Going into the position round, Martineau needed at least a nine-pin verdict over Tountas . . . He won by ten pins, 224-214.
Martineau's total read 8969, Tountas had 8967. The new champion won ten and tied one in the 16-game finals. Tountas posted a 10-6 mark.
