Smith Makes It Ten Titles
"The Tiger" took a public relations page from golf's Tony Lema and Harry Smith now is bowling's "Champagne Kid."
Following his third PBA tournament victory of the year and 10th overall in the Denver Open, Smith threw a champagne party for the press and all the boys on the tour.
Everyone agreed this was quite a gesture coming from the guy who, a few years back, wouldn't give his opponents a "good morning" because he was afraid it might destroy his competitive edge.
Smith's margin of victory was overwhelming . . . 347 pins better than runnerup Bob Phillips. The veteran posted a 9331 total. This included 700 bonus pins he got for winning 14 of his 16 match games in the finals.
