Holman Beaches Whale

Marshall Holman became the youngest bowler to win 10 PBA titles by tossing a clutch double in the 10th frame of the championship match to defeat top-seeded Jeff Mattingly, 205-195, in the Seattle Open.

The TV heroics capped off a week-long battle between the pair which saw Mattingly, of nearby Tacoma, Wash., roll a heart-stopping three-bagger in the final frame of the position round contest to earn the top-seeded position, 258-257.

Holman, 24, gained a rematch against the white-haired, 5'10", 225 lb. Mattingly by shooting down Larry Laub, 279-203. In the championship game the expressive Holman trailed the "White Whale" throughout the close contest until coming through with the crucial final frame double.
