#31 – Aulby Wins Players Championship To Complete The Super Slam
Mike Aulby won the 1996 Bayer/Brunswick Touring Players Championship to become the first (and thus far only) player to win bowling’s “Super Slam” consisting of all five majors (U.S. Open, PBA National/World Championship, PBA Tournament of Champions, USBC Masters & PBA Touring Players Championship). Aulby also won Showboat Invitational and Brunswick Memorial World Open titles, and remains the only player to win every 56-game format tournament the PBA has offered. Aulby also was the first PBA player to earn Rookie of the Year (1979) and Player of the Year (1985) honors.
