Winston-Salem Hawaiian Invitational



$35,000 WINSTON-SALEM HAWAIIAN INVITATIONAL
Various Centers, Honolulu, Hawaii, Dec 2-12, 1974

Anthony A Hono-Lulu

Earl Anthony captured the $35,000 Winston-Salem Invitational with a 299 effort in the championship game; won his sixth Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) title of the year to tie a record, and pushed his official earnings to $99,160 in the last mayor stop on the 1974 tour.

Victim of Anthony s onslaught in the finals at Kalihi Bowl was Art Trask, Miami, Fla . who was looking for his first PBA victory, but the best he could muster against Anthony's near-perfect game was a 199. Anthony left a six-pin on his final ball.

"It was a little bit high but I thought it was a pretty good hit," Anthony told newsmen later as he described his last ball. It was the second time this year that Anthony was deprived of a 300 by one pin during a televised finale. He got them all except a nine-pin during the finals of the $60 000 Cleveland Rotary Open.

The tournament at Honolulu was no cakewalk for Anthony.

Veteran Carmen Salvino led after the first round. Anthony took over for another round, then surrendered the lead to Jay Robinson. Anthony finally got it back with 10 games to go and cemented his top-seeded spot in the finals by winning seven of his last 10 games, including a 268-217 victory over Trask in the position-round game.

Joining Anthony, Trask, Robinson and Salvino in the finals was Larry Laub runnerup to Anthony in the money standings In the first gam a of the finals, Salvino defeated Laub, 230-204, but then went down to defeat at Robinson's hands, 220-180. Trask then came on the scene and ousted Robinson, 224-201, setting the stage for Anthony's championship game splurge.
