Seattle Open



$32,000 SEATTLE OPEN
Balling Bowl, Seattle, Wash., Jun 18-21, 1971

Johnson Nicks Mick

It was a thrilling windup to a thrilling event, and when it was all over, an old and familiar face was in the winner's circle at the Seattle Open Bowling Tournament. Don Johnson, who had gone into the competition with a dozen titles to his credit, went down to the final frame before claiming his 13th PBA victory.

Johnson's victim in the 42nd game was tiny Mick McMahon, Portland, Oregon, who went into the. 24th and last game of match play needing a 10-pin victory to notch his first PBA championship. It was not to .be, even though McMahon rolled a fine game. Mick hit the pocket on all ten shots, but failed to carry enough for strikes.. Had the 5-6 youngster struck in the tenth frame, he would have whipped Johnson.

When Johnson stepped up on the approach, after McMahon failed to get his double in the tenth frame, he knew he needed a spare and seven pins for victory. He accomplished both and won the $4,000. Petraglia, who moved into the runnerup spot, earned $2,200 and now stands at $70,928.
