Banking on Zurich
Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Sam Zurich was so surprised with his performance this week, he could hardly find the words. The PBA Senior Tour rookie won a title in just his second career event, defeating Michael Henry, 205-200, Wednesday to win the 2007 PBA Senior Northern Illinois Classic at Sunset Bowl.

Sam Zurich is competing in just his second career PBA Senior Tour event, but he’s hoping some valuable lessons he has already learned will pay quick dividends.

Monday, May 14, 2007

As one of a handful of star rookies on the PBA Senior Tour this summer, but not having bowled much recently, Sam Zurich didn’t expect a lot out of his first few events on the Tour. He certainly didn’t expect to bowl like he did Monday.
