The date was March 17, 1984 where Guppy Troup met Mark Roth in the final match to bowl for the $38,000 top prize. Guppy, who qualified 5th, defeated Mal Acosta, Larry Laub, and Steve Cook for the right to face Roth in this Major tournament. It was noted that Troup was using a ball that was 20 years old at the time...looks like an AMF, with the 3 dots at the top. Take note that Roth was chewing gum, and was even chewing it during his approach! Up to that point in time, Roth had never won a major. It was a great match that went all the way to the last ball. I hope you enjoy.
