LENNY NGUYEN WINS LIGBT SPRING MAJOR

Posted On: April 18, 2016

Babylon, NY:  Lenny Nguyen, a 49 year-old accountant from Flushing, NY, won the $2,000 top prize at LIGBT’s 2016 Spring Major at AMF Babylon. Lenny secured his first LIGBT title with an impressive 231 game giving him a 14 pin victory over second place finisher Andrew Mienkiewicz, Massapequa, NY who earned $1,000 with a 217. Finishing third was Dave Martorella, Meriden, CT with a 208 worth $750 and fourth was taken by Rich Patson, Lindenhurst, NY with a 203 worth $500.

The shootout included only one previous title holder (Dave Martorella) so as expected the final match started slowly as all 4 bowlers had an open by the 4th frame. In the 7th frame only 5 pins separated the 4 bowlers. Lenny’s title march started with a double in the 8th and 9th frames and when he marked in the tenth he secured his first title.

The LIGBT Spring Major drew a great 4 squad crowd of 240 entries plus 39 desperado entries. A total of 45 bowlers cashed in a prize fund that paid $11,250. Kegel’s 41 foot Turnpike pattern was used and scoring was on the moderate side for an LIGBT major with cuts ranging from 694 to 722. High series of the tournament was shot by Bill Verni with an 859 in the Sunday 1pm squad. Twelve bowlers earned a Brunswick Danger Zones by shooting the high handicap score each game in every squad.
