The date was December 3, 1988 at the Touring Players Championship in Taylor, MI. Dave Ferraro, who qualified number 1, was up against number 2 seed, Walter Ray Williams, Jr. In all the years I've been watching bowling, I've never seen WRW miss a 10 pin. In this match he misses two of them, which cost him the match. I was glad to have found this tape, showing a victorious Dave Ferraro. Ferraro took home $23,000 for his efforts. This was the final stop of the year on the PBA fall tour. My buddy Tom is a huge Dave Ferraro fan, and I know he will appreciate seeing this. Jay Randolph and Earl Anthony with the call. Hope you enjoy!

Being that I live in Kingston, well, just outside of it, It’s always nice to see you post some Dave videos… He loves seeing them when they get posted here 😀
My pleasure! My buddy Tom is a huge Dave Ferraro fan! Ferraro will be on the Let’s Go Bowling show on May 8. Check out my website for further details.
He is still a great bowler
Omg, Ray missing a ten pin. That is exactly why he shoots straight spares now. Don’t have to count on that break.
He was throwing essentially a kill shot – you can hear the rumbling on the thumb hole. He just dead missed them right. Very interesting to watch.
yes, this was from Taylor lanes, in Taylor, Michigan.
Walter Ray missed the 10 pin last week on TV. I couldn’t believe it.
WRW is truly a fantastic bowler through all these years. His only shortcoming is not coming through to win the championship matches. It’s amazing how many he’s had a chance to win yet only at about 50%
Wow, WRW missing TWO ten pins in one game? That’s a trip!
@thunderstruck665 If it happens to the BEST in the game, it’s gonna happen to EVERYONE. I’ve gotten a lot better at my 10s but I still miss a few here and there too. ;-;
Question: When Dave Ferraro won the TPC, was it considered a “major” at the time he won it? If yes, that means he has 3 major championships not just one. Two Players Championships and the T of C.
Mrbowling300 if you have this whole tournament and the 1980 arc alameda open can you please post it?
