8/10/04Roche Wins Ten Grand & ABC Records Set

As if that’s not enough, Jeff flew home & helped PGI’s founder, Arnie Goldman, make ABC history.

Roche, bowling as Goldman’s doubles partner (in a doubles league held at ThunderBowl Lanes, longtime home of the highly famed “Detroit All-Star Classic” league located in Allen Park, Michigan), shot games of : 224-300-267 and 280 - 1071.  His four games supported Arnie’s 1169 effort which presently stands as the 2nd highest sanctioned 4-game total in ABC history.

His games were: 279-300-290-300.  And, in case you’re wondering, his only 2 spares were a solid 10 in the 9th frame & the first shot he delivered on his 2nd pair of lanes (w/out practice) was a 7-pin. [For 46 out of a possible 48.]

Their 600 (team game) ties that all-time ABC mark as well. The 2240 8-game (combined doubles) total they registered, sets a new all-time record in that department, & their 1660 (791 & 869) ranks as 3rd highest on the ABC’s all-time list.

Goldman also bowled a 300 game in the 6th round, but fell one win short from TV at the Mini Eliminator in Las Vegas.

*Additional congratulations go out to PGI user Nunzio Marino, for being named the Michigan Major’s 2003 “Bowler of the Year.”
