Ringing 10 For Laub

Laub took the lead after the first game of the final session and never let up. He won his next six matches and took an 84-pin lead into the final match against Pete McCordic.
Even though McCordic won the match, Laub wound up with a 25-pin margin of victory. Laub's last previous title came in the 1976 Hawaiian Invitational.
