Godman Takes Tucson
The consistent brand of bowling shown all summer by Jim Godman finally paid off with a victory in the Tucson Junior Achievement Open at Cactus Bowl. The crown, Godman's sixth in a sparkling career, was nearly a wire-to-wire performance.
The winner rolled a 300, one of the four perfect games recorded in this long-running competition, and he went at a 236 clip for 42 games to win the crown by 46 pins over runnerup Terry Booth. Third place went to Roy Buckley.
Going into the final game of the event, Godman owned a lead of 109 pins, which clinched his second major triumph of 1971. Winner of the Masters just a few weeks before, Godman dropped the final game by a 226-193 count to Booth, but by then it did not matter.
