Weber Wins Again In Hawaii

For the second year in a row, Dick Weber, St. Louis, Mo., claimed the Hawaiian Invitational title.

It was victory number three of the season, and career win number 23, for the PBA's all-time leading money winner after he defeated Don Johnson in the televised finals of the season's finisher for the PBA.

Weber was top-seeded at the end of 56 games of qualifying and waited while Johnson knocked off three opponents to get at Weber for the finale.

Johnson, who had compiled 764 in this first three matches, couldn't keep up the torrid pace in the championship game, however, losing to Weber, 185-182.

It was Ted Hoffman Bowling Promotions and Bowling Promotions of Hawaii who teamed up to make the tournament a success.
