We go back to November 19, 1977, where two of the top bowlers in the world met in the finals of the $100,000 Brunswick World Open. Marshall Holman qualified 3, won his opening two matches to meet Mark Roth, who qualified first. Up to this time, the match became one of the most exciting and energetic championship matches played up to that time as Marshall made his run at 300, and a $10,000 bonus. It's amazing to see how much hook both of them got for 1977. I believe Mark Roth was 26 at the time, and Holman 23. NBC used to cover this tournament, and the announcers were Jack Buck and Dave Davis. One of the oddest things shown here is take note after Marshall's 7th frame the long drag he takes on his cigarette going into commercial. This would never be shown today. The production is very basic, with the scoreboard is done by hand.
