Hardwick Is Consistent
Never farther back than fourth throughout the tournament, Billy Hardwick defeated Dave Soutar, 257-224, in the position round game to win the $30,000 Seattle Open.
Hardwick was third going into the position round and never had held the tournament lead; but his victory, coupled with Vern Downing's 222-206 defeat of Jim Stefanich, gave Hardwick the 16-pin margin of victory.
