RON MOSZKOW WINS LIGBT TITLE AT FARMINGDALE LANES
Farmingdale, NY: Ron Moszkow, Huntington Station, NY, won his first LIGBT title and it all happened at Farmingdale Lanes. Fighting a painful hip, which will be operated on over the summer, Ron shot a 230 handicap game to defeat two other grandfathers to win the $1,000 top prize. Finishing second with a 215 was Ed Ryan, Wantagh, NY earning $500 and third went to Ken Simpson, Shirley, NY winning $250 with a 200.
The final shootout was very tight the first 7 frames. In fact, Ron had 2 opens in the first 4 frames so his title aspirations were not looking good early. But a string of 4 strikes beginning in the 6th frame by Ron overcame the 15 pin deficit and propelled him to victory.
The Farmingdale tournament drew a nice crowd of 100 bowlers. The shot for the tournament was PBA’s Cheetah, although it didn’t play as it normally does, and the scores were fairly low. The cut score in the in the 1pm squad was 671, and in the 3pm squad 670. High handicap series was shot by Ed Ryan, who actually shot the two highest series of the day; 790 and 783.
