He started the qualifying round slowly, averaging 181 for the first three games before exploding with a 239 average 239 for the final seven games of qualifying. He posted 6-1 record throughout the match play finals to claim the $1,500 first prize along with his first PBA title. Reynolds earned $1,000 for his runner-up finish. 

In the semifinal matches, Graywacz topped Conrad Chapple of West Pittston, Pa., 196-181, and Reynolds defeated Scott Kinkaid of Elizabethtown, Pa., 163-152. Chapple and Kinkaid earned $750 apiece.
