Davis Back-To-Back Champ

Dave Davis, of Phoenix, Ariz., piled up ten straight strikes on his way to winning his second PBA title in a row in the Denver Open.

The lanky lefty, fresh off a previous week's win in Las Vegas, opened and spared in the first two frames of the nationally televised finals before pouring it on ten times for a 268-188 conquest of Jimmy Mack.

Lynn Shulund triggered a five-time 300 performance by knocking off two perfectos in the qualifying round. Other 300s were shot by Pete Tountas, Gene Rhoda and George McDonald.
