BOWLING—Lefthander EARL ANTHONY of Tacoma, Wash. broke three PBA marks in winning the $32,500 Seattle Open, his first tournament victory. He set a record in finishing the 24 qualifying games with a total of 5,825 pins for a 242 average, and the 50 bonus pins awarded for each victory in match play moved his totals to record marks of 9,564 and 10,064, giving him a final 239 average.
FISHING—Trolling off Makaha, Hawaii, three Los Angeles couples, Mr. and Mrs. Pat Morello, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Lewis and Mr. and Mrs. Mike Wachtler—plus charter-boat Captain Cornelius Choy and his daughter Gail—jointly hauled in a 15-foot, eight-inch-long, 1,805-pound Pacific blue marlin, largest fish (other than sharks) ever caught on rod and reel. Although the marlin beats the world record by 245 pounds, it will not be recognized by the International Game Fish Association since no one person landed it.

Nichols, who had a one-stroke lead going into the weather-delayed final round, shot a dismal 75 and finished in a tie for third with Jack Nicklaus, Bert Yancey, Tom Weiskopf and Jim Jamieson, as Dale Douglass carded 69 and a 274 total to take second.

Baker Hill Farm's DON BAKER ($24.80) captured the $30,000 William E. Miller Memorial Pace at Rosecroft Raceway in Oxon Hill, Md., with Charles Smith Jr. driving him to a 2�-length margin over Prince Mac. Keystone Aaron came in third. The winner covered the mile in 2:01[2/5].
HORSE RACING—Rallying under Jorge Velasquez in the stretch, Rokeby Stable's FORT MARCY ($5) scored a half-length victory over Drumtop in the $57,400 Bowling Green Handicap at Belmont, with Hitchcock a length and a half farther back in third.

D'Artagnan ($7.80), owned by the Miles-Tauber Stable and ridden by Laffit Pincay Jr., galloped home 1� lengths ahead of Top the Market in the $56,350 Cinema Handicap at Hollywood Park, equaling the track record of 1:47[2/5] for the grassy 1? miles. Hanalei Bay finished third.
