Stus, Winger, Petraglia lead field in senior tour
NAPLES, Fla. (AP) _ Three bowlers who have rolled perfect games _ Gene Stus, Ron Winger and John Petraglia _ finished 1-2-3 Thursday and led the field into the final of the Showboat Naples Senior Open.
They will get a shot at the $100,000 bonus for a 300 championship game Thursday night in the final.
Stus, of Allen Park, Mich., averaged 225.88 for 42 games. He finished 113 pins in front of Winger, who is from Tarzana, Calif.
Mike Durbin, the tour’s regular TV announcer, wound up fourth and Gary Dickinson, the leading candidate for PBA Senior Player of the Year honors, was fifth.
Petraglia, the field’s only left-hander, finished 47 pins behind Winger and 130 in front of Durbin. Dickinson rallied in the final game to nose out Tom Blasco for the final TV spot.
