Wayne Reigns In Ebonite

It was a long time coming, but it was well worth waiting for. That's the way Wayne Zahn expressed his sentiments after he took first place in the $80,000 Ebonite Open. He toppled Norm Meyers, 199-170, in the title contest, and it was his first PBA triumph in five years, but 12th in a long and meritorious career.
