$130,000 FAIR LANES OPEN
Fair Lanes Woodlawn, Baltimore, Md., Apr 1-5, 1986

All's Fair For Williams

Walter Ray Williams Jr., Stockton, Calif., became the first two-time winner on the PBA Tour in 1986 as he captured the $130,000 Fair Lanes Open.

Williams downed top-seeded Gil Sliker, 219-204, in the title game to raise his leading money winning total to $86,215 with the $20,000 first prize.

The four-time world horseshoe pitching champion strung strikes in the seventh through ninth frames, then watched as Sliker missed the 1-2-4-8 to hand the title to Williams.

Williams, who qualified second, got past veteran Bobby Knipple in the semifinal match, 245-168. Knipple said afterward that he was going into semi-retirement after 21 years as a PBA member.

In the opening game, Knipple downed rookie Rod Pasteur, 254-235, and then advanced to defeat Jimmie Pritts Jr., 222-148.
