My guesses are filled in below...


But Pat Fleming likely has the original list.
I can add to this list. Edgar "Shake and Bake" Whte, Jose Garcia, Gilles Darr (from Canada), Dave Ascolese, Allen Kiehle, Mike Nicoloro, Bob "Robert" Hunt, William "Bill" Stephen is correct.

Thanks for the info!

Those 1980s accustats magazines are amazing. Talk about a lot of hard work scoring thousands of games, collecting the data, and presenting it in print.

Agreed. Our own AtLarge also collects tons of statistics on tons of events and then takes the time to provide it all it in writing for free for all of us right here on AzBilliards. His latest compilation is at the link below for those that feel his efforts deserve a little recognition with some "likes".

Only one of the reasons Pat Fleming is in the Hall of Fame. Of course there weren't enough pool players who also read to keep the magazine in business, but in the end we got Accu-Stats videos from it.

Are there more on top of what you uploaded to sfbilliards.com or is that the lot?

The website for the US Open while it was the Behrmans' is still available through the amazing site archive.org. The last version was from March of 2018. You can also see many previous versions there. The archive.org copies are not perfect and frequently don't capture complicated or interactive content. Here is the website from 2018:

Note that the old website has the wrong chronology for the first four events, 1976-1979.

And here is the chart for the first Open as nearly as I can figure from the very incomplete report available:
