Jason's TV Recap - Uncensored
Monday, March 30, 2009

Today was the most excited I’ve been for a PBA show since the 1994 AC Delco Classic.

Australia’s Jason Belmonte became the first two-handed player in Professional Bowlers Association history to win a PBA Tour title when he upset top qualifier Michael Fagan of Patchoque, N.Y., 215-201, to win The Bowling Foundation Long Island Classic at AMF Babylon Lanes Sunday.

Looking for his first Lumber Liquidators Professional Bowlers Association Tour singles title, Michael Fagan of Patchogue, N.Y., earned the No. 1 qualifying position for Sunday’s live ESPN-televised stepladder finals of the Bowling Foundation Long Island Classic at AMF Babylon Lanes.

Australian two-handed star Jason Belmonte in Seventh.

Aussie sensation Belmonte, Hall of Famer Petraglia also among the top 64 finalists in West Babylon.

Petraglia was recently named the 16th greatest player in the history of the PBA during its 50th Anniversary Season. The lefthander won 14 times on the PBA Tour including the three majors that comprise bowling’s Triple Crown.
