PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia became the first player in PBA history to win a national tour or national senior tour title in six different decades after winning the 2012 PBA Senior Dayton Classic. Petraglia joined the PBA in 1965 and won his first title in the 1966 PBA Fort Smith Open. In 1971, Petraglia won five titles including three consecutive wins culminating with his first major championship – the 1971 Firestone Tournament of Champions. The TOC title, coupled with his 1977 BPAA U.S. Open and 1980 PBA National Championship wins, made him the second player ever to win the PBA’s prestigious Triple Crown (joining Billy Hardwick). Today there are six players who have completed the Triple Crown.
