Popular PBA50 Tour Player Bill McCorkle Dies at 65 By Bill Schneider CHICAGO - Bill McCorkle, a PBA60 national tournament, four-time regional and three-time PBA50 regional titlist from Westerville, Ohio, died Thursday after a battle with cancer. He was 65. One of the most popular players on the PBA50 Tour, McCorkle achieved his dream of winning a PBA national title by capturing the 2014 PBA60 Dick We- ber Super Senior Classic title in Fort Wayne, Ind., when he defeated PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia, 244-173, in the title match at Pro Bowl West. McCorkle’s win in that event was made extra special when his close friend since childhood - fellow Westerville, Ohio native Bill Henson - won the same event the very next year, also beating Petraglia for the title under very similar circumstances. To read McCorkle’s account of his and Henson’s quests to win a na- tional PBA title see story next page A competitor on the PBA50 Tour for 15 years and a PBA member since 1972, McCorkle also competed in 111 PBA Tour events , advancing to match play six times. McCorkle competed in 47 USBC Open Championships and was also a mem- ber of the Central Ohio and Ohio State bowling halls of fame. Funeral ar- rangements are pending. 55 AND HOLDING By Correen Edgerly CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK PAGE FOR UPCOMING EVENTS Thanksgiving has passed us by and Christmas is fast approaching so let’s check out scores that have rolled since leagues started.
