Mark Williams Wins PBA60 Dick Weber Championship for First PBA60 Title

by Jerry Schneider August 9, 2019 12:11

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Seven-time Go Bowling! PBA Tour and three-time PBA50 Tour titlist Mark Williams defeated Rick Minier 177-175 in the title match to win the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by DeHayes Insurance Group and 900 Global Friday at Pro Bowl West for his first PBA60 title.

In the final tournament of the 2019 PBA50/60 season and third event for players 60 and over, both Williams and Minier struggled in the title match with three open frames each. Minier’s most costly open came in the ninth when he left a 7-10 split.

Williams, who was the top seed for the stepladder finals, was working on a double heading into the 10th frame but got a scare when he left the 2-10 split after a light hit on his first shot of the frame. The resulting eight-count turned out to be enough to win the match.

“I knew I needed eight to be safe but it turned out I was lucky to get it,” the 61-year-old PBA Hall of Famer said. “I got the ball a little wide and it didn’t hook back like I thought it would. Sometimes you need breaks to win and I guess that was the one I needed.”

The low-scoring title match came as a surprise to Williams after a relatively high-scoring semifinal match in which Minier, the No. 2 seed for the finals, beat No. 5 seed Hall of Famer Brian Voss 279-228.

“I think the conditions really changed and caught both of us by surprise,” Williams said of the title match. “The way those guys were bowling I thought it would take 220 or 230 at least to win. I would have never thought that the (title) match would have been below 200.”

The stepladder finals started with Voss, trying for his second consecutive PBA60 title after winning the David Small’s JAX 60 National Championship Monday, beating No. 4 seed Jerry Sikora, who finished third in the JAX 60 National Championship, 246-226. Voss then went on to beat Emilio Mora 246-169 in the second stepladder match to advance to the semifinal.

Mora, trying for his first “senior” title, made a remarkable run to earn the No. 3 seed for the finals posting an 11-1 record in match play.

Defending champion and Fort Wayne native Ron Mohr, finished sixth ending his streak of six consecutive PBA50/60 tournament top-five finishes. The four-time and reigning PBA60 Player of the Year missed the stepladder final after losing his position round match to Mora 191-177.

Defending Champion Ron Mohr Takes PBA60 Dick Weber Championship Lead After First Round

by Jerry Schneider August 7, 2019 19:55

FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Defending champion Ron Mohr bowled a 1,628 pinfall total for seven games to take the first-round lead Wednesday in the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by DeHayes Insurance Group and 900 Global at Pro Bowl West.

The Fort Wayne native, who now lives in Las Vegas, bowled games of 246, 249, 204, 268, 245, 194 and 222 averaging 232 for the round.

“I missed the (lane condition) transition in in the 204 and 190 game,” said the PBA Hall of Famer who has already clinched his fourth consecutive PBA60 Player of the Year Award. “I wasn’t too worried about it because if you can grind out a 190 or 200 when you’re not able to make the right adjustment that’s not too bad.”

The 63-year-old Mohr, who also owns two PBA50 Player of the Year honors, is currently on a string of six top-five finishes in PBA50/60 competition. Most recently he finished fifth in the PBA60 David Small’s JAX 60 National Championship which ended Monday in Jackson, Michigan.

“It’s been an unbelievable run and hopefully I can keep it going for a good finish to the season in my hometown,” said Mohr, a two-time PBA60 titlist. “I don’t recall ever being on a stretch where I’ve bowled this consistently well.”

In July Mohr won the PBA50 David Small’s Championship Lanes Classic for his 11th career PBA50 Tour title.

Mohr holds a nine-pin lead over 2017 Dick Weber Championship runner-up Dave Axon of Bellevue, Nebraska finishing the round with 1,619. In third is 2017 winner Darryl Bower of Middletown, Pennsylvania with 1,599.

Rounding out the top five were JAX 60 National Championship and 2018 Dick Weber Championship runner-up Harry Sullins, Chesterfield Twp., Michigan in fourth with 1,583 and PBA Hall of Famer Mark Williams of Beaumont, Texas in fifth with 1,556.

JAX 60 National Championship winner PBA Hall of Famer Brian Voss got off to a slow start finishing the round in 51st with 1,421.

The field returns for another seven-game qualifying round Thursday morning at 11 a.m. ET after which the top 32 players will advance to the first match play round at 5 p.m. After the second match play round at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, the top five players will be determined for the stepladder finals scheduled for noon.

Voss Beats Sullins in Title Match Thriller to Win PBA60 David Small’s JAX 60 National Championship

by Jerry Schneider August 5, 2019 18:20

JACKSON, Mich. – PBA Hall of Famer Brian Voss, a 25-time Go Bowling! PBA Tour and two-time PBA50 Tour titlist, defeated Harry Sullins 264-256 in the title match to capture the PBA60 David Small’s JAX 60 National Championship in memory of Mel Wolf title Monday at JAX 60 Lanes for his first PBA60 win.

Competing in the tournament exclusively for players 60 years of age and older, Voss started the match with eight strikes before he opened in the ninth frame after leaving the 4-6-7 split. Sullins, who also was trying for his first PBA60 title, was able to stay in the match with a string of eight strikes of his own after a 7-10 split in the second frame. The USBC Hall of Famer, who is a five-time PBA Tour and three-time PBA50 Tour winner, had a chance to win the match with a strike on the second ball of the 10th frame but left a solid 10 pin which gave the win to Voss.

“That’s why I bowl right there,” the 61-year-old Voss said of his victory. “I wanted the 300 game but it probably turned out more exiting the way it ended. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how many times you’ve done it, winning never gets old.

“I was really into it and Harry was too,” Voss added. “We were really pushing each other. I got a little slow with that shot in the ninth frame but fortunately I learned from it.”

Voss had a 13-3 overall match play record including a 6-0 run in the final round which contributed to his final day surge to earn the top seed for the stepladder finals.

“I didn’t feel I was bowling that great early in the tournament but when I got to match play I figured out I was just arcing the ball too much,” Voss said. “As it turned out I could just move a little further to the right and not put so much arc on the ball.”

Sullins, the no. 2 seed, won the semifinal match thriller 235-234 over No. 3 seed former Team USA member Jerry Sikora who left the 3-9 on his final shot of the 10th frame to give Sullins the win and a berth in the title match.

In the first stepladder match, three-time PBA50 Tour and one-time PBA60 titlist Mike Dias beat No. 5 seed and newly-crowned PBA60 Player of the Year Ron Mohr 211-200. In the second match Sikora beat Dias 227-190 to meet Sullins in the semifinal.

PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia, 72, led the first four rounds of the tournament but eventually finished sixth, losing to Mohr in the position round match to miss the finals.

The tournament was named in honor of longtime PBA50 competitor Mel Wolf who passed away in 2011. The one-time PBA50 Tour titlist was the driving force in bringing the senior tour to Jackson in 1992.

The PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by The DeHayes Insurance Group and 900 Global at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne, Indiana concludes the 2019 PBA50/60 season Aug. 7-9. Mohr, an 11-time PBA50 Tour and two-time PBA60 titlist, is the defending champion.

Parker Bohn III Rides Clean Second Round to Lead Qualifying for PBA50 David Small’s JAX 60 Classic

by Jerry Schneider August 1, 2019 14:49

JACKSON, Mich. – Hoping to end a two-year drought without a win on the PBA50 Tour, PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, New Jersey averaged 237 for 16 games to emerge as the qualifying leader for the PBA50 David Small’s JAX 60 Classic presented by Track.

The four-time PBA50 Tour titlist started Thursday’s second eight-game round at JAX 60 Lanes with a 205 game and then caught fire bowling games of 258, 258, 278, 245, 248, 246 and 235 bringing his two-round qualifying pinfall total to 3,803. He had no open frames in his second round.

“The good shots resulted in strikes and the bad shots resulted in nothing worse than a makeable spare,” said Bohn, who also has won 35 times on the Go Bowling! PBA Tour. “After the first game I just needed to tighten up my line to the pocket a little bit and more often than not I knocked them all down. I didn’t have to shoot at anything worse than a three-pin spare.”

Bohn, who notched his second top-qualifier honor in the last three tournaments, last won on the tour for players 50 and over in August of 2017 when he won the David Small’s Championship Lanes Classic. This season he has three top-five finishes with a best of second in the PBA50 Northern California Classic.

“I don’t mind telling you I’m tired of making shows and not winning,” said the 56-year-old left-hander. “There’s something to be learned from every tournament so hopefully I can put all that experience to use and win this one.”

As a result of finishing in the top eight, Bohn earned a bye into Friday’s second match play round. The other seven players earning a bye were: Joel Carlson, Omaha, Nebraska, 3,730; Brian Menini, Brookfield, Missouri., 3,700; Steve Jaros, Yorkville, Illinois, 3,686; Harry Sullins, Chesterfield Twp., Michigan., 3,682, followed by three Hall of Famers – Mark Williams, Beaumont, Texas, 3,671; 2019 David Small’s Championship Lanes Classic winner Ron Mohr, Las Vegas, 3,667, and Brian Voss, Centennial, Colorado, 3,644.

If PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Florida is going to win his fourth tournament of the season and 15th of his career to take sole possession of the all-time PBA50 Tour titles lead, he’ll have to advance through Friday’s cashers round to earn a spot in the first match play round which is something he’s done in two of his wins that came early in the season.

Williams narrowly advanced to the cashers round finishing tied for 31st with 2017 PBA50 Player of the Year Brian LeClair, of Albany, New York. LeClair, who also advanced to the cashers round will be trying for his third win of the season.

Friday’s competition begins with the cashers round at 8:30 a.m. ET with match play rounds at noon and 3 p.m. After match play is completed the top five players will advance to the stepladder finals at 7 p.m. ET.

Final day coverage of the JAX 60 Classic will be streamed live by PBA’s online bowling channel FloBowling beginning at 8:30 a.m. For subscription and schedule information visit www.flobowling.com.

Minor Adjustments Help Steve Jaros Take PBA50 David Small’s JAX 60 Classic Lead After First Round

by Jerry Schneider July 31, 2019 14:18

JACKSON, Mich. – Steve Jaros, a seven-time Go Bowling! PBA Tour titlist trying for his first PBA50 Tour win, bowled a 1,915 pinfall total for eight games to take the first-round lead Wednesday in the PBA50 David Small’s JAX 60 Classic presented by Track.

Bowling in his first PBA50 Tour event of the season, the 53-year-old Jaros bowled games of 226, 237, 224, 268, 257, 204, 243 and 256 at JAX 60 Lanes to hold a 31-pin lead over PBA Hall of Famer Mark Williams in second with 1,884.

“I want to bowl more but haven’t had time because of my work commitments,” said Jaros, who is only able to bowl an occasional PBA50 Tour event. “I’m fortunate that I’m able to make the most of the tournaments I do bowl for the most part and getting off to a good start is always encouraging.

“Today was one of those rounds where I could play the same part of the lane, keep the ball in play and didn’t have to make any drastic changes,” Jaros added. “The transition caught me off guard in the 204 game, but I was able to grind it out and didn’t have any opens.”

Jaros, of Yorkville, Illinois, had a career best PBA50 Tour finish of fourth in the 2018 PBA50 David Small’s Championship Lanes Classic.

The field returns for another eight-game qualifying round Thursday which begins at 11 a.m. ET. After a cashers round Friday morning at 8:30 a.m., match play rounds are scheduled for noon and 3 p.m. which will determine the top five players for the stepladder finals at 7 p.m.

Rounding out the top five were Keith Lesko, Prosper, Texas, 1,881; 2019 PBA50 Hamilton Lanes Open winner Joel Carlson, Omaha, Neb., 1,875, and three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins, Chesterfield Twp., Mich., 1,873.

PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr., who recently locked up PBA50 Player of the Year honors and is trying for a record 15th career PBA50 Tour title, finished the first round in 15th with 1,804.
