$35,000 MOBILE-SERTOMA OPEN
Florida Bowl, Mobile, Ala., Feb 8-12, 1966
Limongello Most At Mobile
Mike Limongello is about as big as a pint of persimmon juice (125 pounds) but he handles the 16-pounder like a heavyweight. At least, he rolled with authority in capturing his second PBA championship, the $35,000 Mobile-Sertoma Open.
After leading the 40-game qualifier, the 21-year-old pro wrapped up Dave Davis, 197-176, in the title tilt to pad his bank account by $5,000.
Davis and Bob Kwolek both defeated Johnny Meyer in the first two games of the televised finals. Davis then knocked out Kwolek, 204-183, to go into the payoff game.
Limongello won his first test as a 20-year-old in the 1965 PBA Oklahoma City test.
