Greater New York Individual Tournament

The Greater New York Individual Tournament was one of the earliest match-game events.  It was generally conducted over several weeks, like a modern league.  Final standings were based on the bowler’s won/lost record.  Starting in 1904 the winner received a trophy from the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper, and the event was also known as the Brooklyn Eagle Tournament.
