Roth Knows Way In San Jose
Mark Roth became only the second player in professional bowling history to earn $100,000 two years in a row when he won the 560,000 San Jose Open at Saratoga Lanes.
Only Roth and Earl Anthony have won $100,000 in two seasons, Anthony having done it in 1975-76.
The North Arlington, N.J., right-hander devastated the field during the final day as he amassed a lead of 200 pins after beginning the day in third place, some 78 pins off the pace set by Jay Robinson, the eventual runnerup.
