PBA Hall-of-Famer Dave Davis showed the form that earned him a spot in that elite group a few months earlier when he scored a runaway victory in the $60,000 Fresno Open at Cedar Lanes.
The lanky left-hander from Hackensack; N.J., averaged better than 220 for the 42-game test, four pins better than anyone else in the tournament.
He finished with a 366-pin margin over young Ken Fernandez in the final standings. Davis also compiled the best match play record, winning 19 of 24 matches.
