Soutar: Veteran's Revenge

Dave Soutar, who was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame in 1979, added another title to his collection when he defeated contemporary tour stars Marshall Holman and Tom Baker to win the $95,000 Syracuse Open.

Soutar, 42, whose winning days go back to the 1961 PBA National Championship, halted an amazing effort by Holman, playing with a broken bone in his right hand. Despite doubts he could even make a shot, Holman, with a 14-pound ball and an adjusted grip, managed to beat Mal Acosta, 257-221, before Soutar, showing no mercy, eliminated Holman, 256-235.

Soutar then fell behind by 11 pins after four frames against top-seeded Baker before starting a string of six strikes to claim his 17th PBA crown. Soutar also had finishes of second and third in 1982, demonstrating he has lost little, if any, of his tremendous skills.
