Roth won his first PBA Tour title in the 1975 King Louie Open and rolled a 299 game in the championship match. In 1978, he set a PBA record that still stands, winning eight titles in a single season. Shown in this video is the Quaker State Open, which Roth won over Marshall Holman. It was Roth's second title of 1978. In 1980, Roth became the first player in PBA Tour history to convert the 7-10 split during the televised finals, a feat only accomplished three times since. He won two majors among his four titles in 1984, also earning his fourth PBA Player of the Year Award (which he previously won in 1977 through 1979). His 34th and final title came in the 1995 IOF Foresters Open with a win over Walter Ray Williams Jr.
