Showboat Bowling Center, Las Vegas, Nev., Jan 23-29, 1983

Mighty Milton Showboats

For the second consecutive week a new winner was crowned when Tom Milton began the championship match with seven straight strikes to rout Don Genalo, 259-206, and win the $150,000 Showboat Invitational.

Milton collected $27,000 for his first national tour title, but flirted with the possibility of an added $50,000 offered by True Value for a perfect game rolled during the championship round.

In the opening game Gary Skidmore topped Marshall Holman, 209-179. Genalo then outscored Skidmore, 203-187, and Joe Hutchinson, 256-176, to get a shot at his first PBA victory.
