BRUNSWICK REGIONAL CHAMPIONS CLASSIC
Brunswick Olympic Bowl, Rochester, N.Y., Oct 27-30, 1978
Roth "Region" New Heights
Mark Roth assured himself of the greatest year ever experienced by a professional bowler when he captured the Brunswick Regional Champions Classic in Rochester, N.Y.
When Roth took first-place money of $5,000, he put his total at the time to over $118,000. Of perhaps greater significance was the fact that the title was his eighth of the 1978 campaign, and no pro had ever won that many times.
Roth's margin of victory over rookie David Ozio was 287 pins. Ozio, disappointed at being denied his first PBA triumph, nevertheless savored the joy and pride in having a perfect game.
Alternate - Steve Nowicki, received $75. 18-game qualifying leader - Roth, 4,055. 24th place - Bell and Semiz, 3,726. # - Ozio and Troup rolled 300 games. PRO-AM CASHERS - Randy Neal, Nelson Burton Jr., Larry Gray, Jim Stefanich, Sam Flanagan, Mark Roth.
