Canada Dry Open



$50,000 CANADA DRY OPEN
Westgate Lanes, Cleveland, Ohio, Oct 25-28, 1974

Anthony Takes The Fifth

Earl Anthony set a professional bowling record when he won the $50,000 Canada Dry Open here. The $5,000 winner's check hiked the crew-cut pro's 1974 official earnings to $88,255, the most money ever won by a professional bowler in one year. The old record was $85,065 and was set by Johnny Petraglia, Brooklyn N.Y., in 1971.

Even a 300 game by Petraglia on the final night, rolled against Anthony's 279, could not prevent Anthony's relentless march to his fifth victory of the year. He also won the $38,500 AMF Regional Champions Classic in Newark, O.

Anthony emerged victorious in this one after a dog-fight with tour veteran Dave Davis, who jousted with Anthony during most of the 42-game competition.

Davis led Anthony as the field headed into the final eight games of match play at Westgate Lanes, but Anthony promptly uncorked an 805 series in his first three games, including that losing 279, and from there he clung to his lead to the end, although he lost the position round game to Davis, 216-196.
