Ron Mohr Strikes Out in 10th Frame of Title Match to Win PBA60 Dick Weber Championship

by Jerry Schneider August 16, 2018 13:05

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – PBA Hall of Famer and Fort Wayne native Ron Mohr won all four stepladder finals matches and threw three strikes in the 10th frame of the title match to win the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by 900 Global Thursday at Pro Bowl West.

The 62-year-old Mohr, who qualified fifth for the finals, defeated top qualifier Harry Sullins of Chesterfield Twp., Mich., 237-235, for his second tournament win for players 60 and over. His first came in the 2017 Super Senior Classic.

Sullins, who finished the match first, made a late run finishing with five consecutive strikes and a nine-count which forced Mohr to get the first two strikes and at least nine on his fill ball in the 10th to win.

“I felt really confident on the right lane so I wasn’t worried about that,” said Mohr, who bowled his 10th frame on the right lane. “The left lane was the challenge and I found myself having to make a number of adjustments. I just had to read and react, stay in the moment and keep telling myself to stay slow.”

It was Mohr’s second senior win of the season after winning the PBA50 Northern California Classic in May for his 10th PBA50 Tour title. Sullins, a three-time PBA50 Tour winner, was trying for his first national senior title since winning the 2011 Senior Lake County Open.

Mohr found himself dangerously close to elimination more than once in the tournament. He started the tournament 44th after the first qualifying round and scrambled to make the cut to match play finishing second round qualifying in 25th after dropping as low as 31st. He then had to win his position round match in the final game of match play Thursday morning to take the fifth qualifying spot for the finals.

“I’ve made a lot of comebacks in a tournament for a good finish or to win but this one ranks right at the top,” said Mohr, who now makes his home in Las Vegas. “I don’t recall ever being on the brink of being eliminated as much as I was in this tournament.

“It’s a spectacular way to wrap up the season in a season where I accomplished way more than I thought I would,” he added. “This is extra special because I grew up here.”

Mohr, who earned his third consecutive PBA60 Player of the Year award, started the finals with a 288-215 win over No. 4 qualifier Christopher Keane of Cape Coral, Fla., who was trying for his first national senior title.

Mohr then went on to beat No. 3 qualifier, PBA Hall of Famer Brian Voss of Centennial, Colo., who turned 60 earlier this month to become eligible for the Dick Weber Championship, 249-212, in the second match.

In the semifinal, Mohr beat PBA50 Tour veteran Sammy Ventura of Syracuse, N.Y., also trying for his first senior title, 224-184, to advance to the title match against Sullins.

The Dick Weber Championship was streamed live on PBA Xtra Frame on Flobowling now featuring multiple streams. Next on the Xtra Frame calendar is the PBA Tour’s Xtra Frame Gene Carter Pro Shop Classic Aug. 18-19. For subscription information visit www.flobowling.com.

PBA Spare Shots: Xtra Frame on FloBowling Debuts Multi-Stream Options for PBA50, XF Tour Events

by Bill Vint August 16, 2018 10:37

As the PBA “senior” players wrapped up their regular season this week with the third annual PBA60 Dick Weber Championship, PBA Xtra Frame on FloBowling unveiled a new multi-stream system to provide subscribers with a “sneak peek” at enhanced viewing options to watch a variety of players.

For the Dick Weber Championship, an event that included a field of 97 players 60 and older, FloBowling began using six streams covering five different pairs of lanes along with a sixth “FloZone” stream that is similar to DirectTV’s “Red Zone” channel. A banner at the bottom of the screen includes links to the available pairs of lanes being streamed. The “FloZone” channel provides live commentary by the Xtra Frame announcing team, but the remaining channels provide scoring and allow viewers the opportunity to watch the players in action.

The Dick Weber Championship, presented by 900 Global, concluded today at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne, Ind., wrapping up with the stepladder finals airing live on PBA Xtra Frame on FloBowling at 1 p.m. EDT.

For the upcoming the Go Bowling! PBA Tour events on PBA Xtra Frame in Middletown, Delaware, multi-stream options will be expanded to 10 simultaneous streams. That means, if there are four players on any given pair of lanes, viewers will have the ability to watch 40 different players on 10 different pairs of lanes during any given game. In Coldwater, Ohio the following week, all eight pairs in 16-lane Pla-Mor Lanes will be live-streamed throughout the event.

Xtra Frame on FloBowling coverage of the 2018 Go Bowling! PBA Tour’s 10th anniversary Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic at Mid-County Lanes in Middletown, Del., is set for Saturday and Sunday, with the stepladder finals airing on Sunday at 7 p.m. EDT. The PBA Xtra Frame Kenn-Feld Group Classic takes place in Coldwater Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 25-26. PBA Tour titles will be at stake in both exclusive PBA Xtra Frame Tour events.

All PBA Xtra Frame events on FloBowling are covered live, from first ball to last. Existing Xtra Frame subscribers need to transition their current subscriptions to FloBowling by visiting https://www.flobowling.com/claim-account. New subscribers can enroll at FloBowling.com.

Brian Voss Makes Surge in First Match Play Round to Take Lead in PBA60 Dick Weber Championship

by Jerry Schneider August 15, 2018 17:05

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Bowling in his first tournament for players 60 and over, PBA Hall of Famer Brian Voss posted a 5-0-1 record and averaged 248 in the first match play round to take the lead in the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by 900 Global Wednesday at Pro Bowl West.

Voss, a 25-time PBA Tour and two-time PBA50 Tour winner who was third after qualifying, finished with a 4,889 20-game pinfall total (including bonus pins) after three rounds to go around Sammy Ventura in second with 4,883 and qualifying leader three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins of Chesterfield Twp., Mich., who dropped to third with 4,866.

Voss bowled games of 237, 224, 279, 248, 278 and 225 in Wednesday’s first match play round.

“At 60 I’m finding the key to success out here is not being hurt and do your best to stay in shape,” said Voss, who just turned 60 on Aug. 4 to become eligible for the Dick Weber Championship. “It just feels strange for me to be bowling competitively at 60. I guess the consolation is I’m the youngest, or at least pretty close to the youngest, 60-year-old out here.”

Voss, who won the PBA50 Mooresville Open in May for his second PBA50 Tour title, will lead the 32-player field into Thursday morning’s second match play round which will determine the top five for the stepladder finals at 1 p.m.

Sullins led qualifying with a 3,331 14-game pinfall but could only manage a 3-3 record in match play while Ventura was able to retain his second spot thanks to a 4-2 record.

Rounding out the top five were Bruce Hall of Westborough, Mass., with 4,826 and Leroy Johnson of Chicago with 4,705. Both players had 5-1 records in match play.

  PBA Hall of Famer and Fort Wayne native Ron Mohr made a big surge from 25th after qualifying to finish sixth after the first match play round finishing with a 5-1 record and 4,702 pinfall. Defending champion Darryl Bower of Middletown, Pa., finished the day in 15th with a 3-3 record and 4,520 pinfall.

The PBA60 Dick Weber Championship is the final event of the PBA50 Tour season and is the second event specifically for players 60 and over. Mike Dias, who currently sits in eighth place, won the Super Senior Classic for players 60 and over in June.

The final day of the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship will be streamed live on PBA’s online bowling channel PBA Xtra Frame on FloBowling now with multiple streams beginning at 9 a.m. ET. Subscription information is available by visiting www.flobowling.com.

Harry Sullins Fires 279 in Final Game of First Round To Take Lead in PBA60 Dick Weber Championship

by Jerry Schneider August 14, 2018 17:11

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Five-time PBA Tour and three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins of Chesterfield Twp., Mich., bowled a 279 game in his last game of first round qualifying Tuesday to take the lead in the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by 900 Global for players ages 60 and over.

The 60-year-old Sullins bowled a 1,683 seven-game pinfall total at Pro Bowl West with games of 196, 276, 247, 212, 265, 208 and 279 going around Sammy Ventura of Syracuse, N.Y., who finished the round in second with 1,653.

The 196 game could have been 220,” Sullins said. “I had a good shot to the pocket but I just didn’t have my speed and line to the pocket matched up like I did in the second game.

“The 279 at the end of the game was kind of unexpected because in the game before it (208) I didn’t have a good feel,” he added. I really didn’t make much of an adjustment in the last game, I just refocused and gave it a little more extra effort.”

Sullins is hoping to end a drought without a win in national senior competition that dates back to the 2011 PBA50 Senior Lake County Open.

“Every year it gets harder on the senior tour,” Sullins said. “There’s more and more good players coming out here and there’s just a lot of guys that are just plain tough to beat. I have had a lot of good finishes recently just not good enough to make the top five.

Rounding out the top five after the first round were William Peters, Dayton Ohio, 1,623; Dale Csuhta, Wadsworth, Ohio, 1,620, and Bruce Hall, Westborough, Mass., 1,597. PBA Hall of Famer Brian Voss finished the round in sixth with 1,579 and defending champion Darryl Bower of Middletown, Pa., finished tied for 22nd with 1,495.

The PBA60 Dick Weber Championship is the final event of the PBA50 Tour season and is the second event specifically for players 60 and over. Mike Dias won the USBC Super Senior Classic for players 60 and over in June.

The PBA60 Dick Weber Championship is streamed live on PBA’s online bowling channel PBA Xtra Frame on FloBowling now with multiple streams. Subscription information is available by visiting www.flobowling.com.

The entire field returns Wednesday morning for another seven-game qualifying round at 9 a.m. ET. The top 32 players will then advance to the first round of match play at 4 p.m. After another match play round Thursday morning, the top five will be determined for the stepladder finals at 1 p.m.
