Brunswick Regional Champions Classic



BRUNSWICK REGIONAL CHAMPIONS CLASSIC
Brunswick Olympic Bowl, Rochester, N.Y., Oct 27-30, 1978

Roth "Region" New Heights

Mark Roth assured himself of the greatest year ever experienced by a professional bowler when he captured the Brunswick Regional Champions Classic in Rochester, N.Y.

When Roth took first-place money of $5,000, he put his total at the time to over $118,000. Of perhaps greater significance was the fact that the title was his eighth of the 1978 campaign, and no pro had ever won that many times.

Roth's margin of victory over rookie David Ozio was 287 pins. Ozio, disappointed at being denied his first PBA triumph, nevertheless savored the joy and pride in having a perfect game.
