Fristoe rolls 299, missing spinning 7

A spinning 7 pin that wouldn't fall was all that separated Ron Fristoe and a 300 game Wednesday at Medford Lanes.

Fristoe had rolled 11 straight strikes when the stubborn 7 remained standing on his 12th ball to leave him with a 299.

Regardless, the Medford resident had a big night in the Commercial League. Fristoe followed the 299 game with a 207 and 259 for a 765 series.

Dick Gergen got a thrill Monday at Stewart Meadows Golf Course.

The 62-year-old Talent resident hit his first hole-in-one when he aced the par-3, 135-yard seventh hole with a pitching wedge.

It's my first real one, said Gergen. I had one on a practice ball one time.

Travis Gelbrich, 24, used a 7-iron to ace the 159-yard ninth hole on Dec. 27. It was Gelbrich's second hole-in-one.

On Jan. 13, Jack Young, 74, scored his first hole-in-one, acing the 143-yard fourth hole with his driver.
