Familiar Name, New Champion

The name Weber has appeared on top of PBA tournament final standings 26 times over the years, representing the number of titles owned by the legendary Dick Weber. Pete Weber made it one more in the $100,000 Greater Hartford Open as he and his dad became the first father-son combination to claim tour championships.

The 19-year-old Weber came from third place, rolling 674 for three matches including a 210-199 final-game win over Pete McCordic, who also was shooting for his first victory. Weber had fallen behind in the match after missing a 3-10 split in the seventh frame before rallying with four straight strikes. McCordic needed a 10th frame double to pull it out but left a 7-pin on his first attempt.
