Canada Dry Open



$55,000 CANADA DRY OPEN
Westgate Lanes, Cleveland, Ohio, Oct 31-Nov 3, 1975

Roy On A Tear

Displaying the best bowling of his seven-year career as a professional, Roy Buckley rolled to an easy victory in the $55,000 Canada Dry Open.

Buckley was forced to bowl at his very best, as he averaged 240 in leading the field in the PBA's third highest scoring tournament ever.

In addition to rolling up a 133-pin margin over second-place Cliff McNealy, Buckley was one of nine players who rolled 300 games during the tournament.

Buckley also set a world record for six games by rolling a 1600 series on opening day. The old record of 1585 was set by Barry Asher, Costa Mesa, Calif., at South Bend Ind., in 1971.

For all intents and purposes, he clinched the Canada Dry title in the first round of match game competition, winning seven games and tying one. That gave him a margin of more than 200 pins.
