The date was April 16, 1976 at the Riviera Lanes, in Fairlawn, Ohio for the $125,000 Firestone Tournament of Champions. The number one qualifer was 34 year old Billy Hardwick, who won the initial Firestone in 1965. He was fresh of a victory the week before in Toledo after a 7 year winless drought. Marshall Holman, the 21 year old kid from Medford, Oregon was defeated Tim Harahan to meet Hardwick. The match was very close and exciting all the way to the end, with $25,000 to the winner, and $14,000 to the loser. The match sort of was the passing of the torch between the old school bowling style of Hardwick, who primarily played the track with his straight shot, and the power game of the upstart Holman. Let's join Chris Schenkel and Bo Burton with the call.
