Skelton, bowling leadoff for the Rather Be Golfing team on lanes 5-6, strung 10 strikes to open game two and appeared to be on his way to another perfect tournament game. But on his next ball, a 10-pin stood on a pocket hit and Skelton had to settle for a 288.
The 288 followed a 204 opening game, and Skelton closed with a solid 220 for a 728 series, the highest game and set in the tournament’s opening team event in unofficial standings. The Classic Lanes Hall of Famer went into tournament play with a 191 average.
Other tournament standings had not been calculated at this writing. The tournament continues through April 22, with competition in three divisions determined by bowler averages and with $1,000 minimum first place money in each team event divison.
With Thursday night’s action devoted to kicking off the tournament, the Men’s Commercial did not compete in regular league play, and the two youth leagues – Jim Mason’s Youth/Adult and Youth No. 2 – were rescheduled to open the lanes for weekend tournament play.
