Gery Verbruggen

on February 28, shot 1430 in Sunday’s final squad, number five, to place second, 88 pins behind fellow countryman Nico Joris.

Six solid 200-plus games, including a high of 258 in the second, brought the veteran leftie top honors on the squad and second place on the leader board. Now there are only three six-game scores over 1400.

This final weekend squad also featured the entries of two princes from Saudi Arabia,Abdulhakin and Mohammed Alsaud. Mohamed had the higher game with a 275 in the second, but a 185 and 168 finish brought him 20 pins behind brotherAbdulhakim, 1311 – 1291. No doubt they will soon be on the re-entry list.

A busy opening weekend brought the entry total up to 149. The current cut figure for 52nd place now stands at 1249.
