Harahan Goes All The Way

Tim Harahan, of Encino, Calif., needed all four victories in the nationally televised finals to win the $50,000 Brut Open in Kansas City and he got 'em.

The 20-year-old belter, who qualified fifth, opened with a 222-192 win over Jim St. John, edged Al Thompson, 195-190, and then eliminated Dick Weber, 254-235.

This set up the title match against the No. 1 seeded Billy Hardwick and it was Harahan all the way, 207-175. The victory was Harahan's first ever and it qualified him for the $100,000 Firestone Tournament of Champions.
