Schlegel An Island Unto Himself

Ernie Schlegel earned a ticket back into the Firestone Tournament of Champions by winning the $115,000 Long Island Open.

Schlegel won two matches, including a rousing, 237-214, victory over leading qualifier Mike Durbin to net a check for $16,000. In the championship game, Schlegel opened a 31-pin lead and matched Durbin almost frame-for-frame thereafter to preserve a winning margin.

Jim Stefanich had ousted Art Trask, 210-191, in the opening match before Don Genalo, the defending champ and local favorite, administered knockout drops to Stefanich, 259-215. Schlegel earned the opportunity to capture his third PBA title by upending Genalo, 225-198.
