$37,500 BAY CITY OPEN
Eastland Lanes, Bay City, Mich., Aug 10-13, 1973
Johnson Hits 22
Don Johnson won the 22nd victory of his remarkable career and his victory in the $37,500 Bay City Open brought him to within two victories of the all-time record of 24 PBA career wins held by Dick Weber.
After Johnson hung a position-round, 258-206, defeat on Larry Laub, to clinch the title, he told newsmen that he wouldn't think about Weber's record until he had one to go.
Except for a brief lapse during the match play competition Monday, Johnson was in command of the tournament virtually throughout. He led the qualifying with an 18-game average of 227, and then, despite losing 11 games during match play competition, won matches at key times.
