Petraglai Takes Over Lead At Dick Weber Super Senior Classic

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Eight-time PBA50 Tour titlist and PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia led a field of 32 players after Saturday’s first match play round of the PBA50 Dick Weber Super Senior Classic presented by Storm at Pro Bowl West.

With a 5-1 match play record and a 4,032 18-game overall pinfall total (which includes 30 bonus pins for each match win), Petraglia held a 69-pin lead over Bill McCorkle of Westerville, Ohio, in second, who finished the round with a 6-0 match play record and 3,963 pinfall.

Petraglia, who led qualifying after the second round earlier in the day, bowled games of 183, 258, 222, 215, 233 and 223 in the first match play round.

“The scores are lower than normal so it’s kind of a grind out there,” said the 14-time PBA Tour winner. “It’s more of a mindset where you want to stay out of trouble which I’ve been successful at doing to this point. For tomorrow’s match play round I just need to keep in that stay-in-charge mode and hopefully I’ll be in good shape to make the finals.”

In 2012 the 67-year-old Petraglia won the PBA Senior Dayton Classic to become the first player in PBA history to win a PBA Tour or PBA50 Tour tournament in six different decades.

Rounding out the top five after the first match play round in the inaugural tournament for PBA50 Tour players ages 60 and over were Michael Henry, Brunswick, Ohio, 3,958; Pete Gurskis, Orland Park, Ill.; 3,900 and Paul McCordic, Sugar Land, Texas, 3,856.

The 32-player field will compete in Sunday’s second match play round beginning at 8:30 a.m. ET which will determine the top five players for the stepladder finals scheduled for noon.

The Super Senior Classic will be followed by the Pro Bowl West Fort Wayne Classic presented by Ebonite open to all PBA50 Tour players ages 50 and over which starts on Monday with the first round of qualifying beginning at 10 a.m.

Both tournaments can be seen on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame. For subscription and schedule information click on the Xtra Frame logo on the pba.com homepage.
