George Young
City: Detroit
State: MI
Inducted: 1959


Young was a member of the four-time USBC Open Championships E&B/Pfeiffer team and won two other eagles in Open Championships competition. He had one of the most glittering Open Championships records with an unparalleled string of nine consecutive all-events totals above 1,800. Between 1942 and 1958 (with three years out for World War II when there was no Tournament), his only total below 1,800 was 1,778 in 1949. His 202 lifetime average was the highest in history for 20 or more tournaments at that time.
