A pair of "two-handed" bowlers — Osku Palermaa and Jason Belmonte — nailed down the top two positions for the ESPN stepladder finals of the Bowlers Journal Scorpion Championship at South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas.
Rounding out the finals field are Tom Daugherty, who does not put his thumb in the ball when seeking strikes, and Jason Sterner, who will be making his ESPN debut after a clutch turkey in the final frame of the final game Tuesday night.
The stepladder final round of the Bowlers Journal Scorpion Championship will be taped this Sunday afternoon beginning at 2 p.m. Pacific. It is scheduled to air on ESPN on Sunday, Jan. 6 at 1 p.m. Eastern.
