For the sixth consecutive qualifying round at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley, Pete Weber found his way to the top of the standings, this time earning top qualifier honors at the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters.

The USBC and PBA Hall of Famer's streak goes back to the USBC Masters in February, where he led all three rounds of qualifying. This week, he is back in Green Bay and averaged more than 233, while leading a field of 194 USBC members age 50 and older.

The 52-year-old right-hander posted qualifying rounds of 1,183, 1,155 and 1,163 to earn the No. 1 spot and lead 64 players into the event's double-elimination match-play bracket with a 15-game total of 3,501.

USBC and PBA Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli qualified second with a 3,427 total and was followed by 2012 Senior Masters champion Mike Edwards (3,426), Pete McCordic (3,323) and Sam Ventura (3,255).

"Sometimes, you walk into a house knowing you're going to bowl well, and after finishing third in the Masters here in February, I felt that way coming into this week," said Weber, who averaged more than 238 during qualifying at the Masters. "The characteristics of this house just suit my game, and I don't have to do anything special."

Weber, the winner of the Suncoast Senior U.S. Open in June, will continue his quest to sweep the season’s PBA50 Tour majors and try for a second USBC Senior Masters title when match play kicks off Friday at 10 a.m. Eastern. All matches will be three games, with total pins determining the winners.

The left side of the bracket will bowl first, and the right side of the bracket will take the lanes at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

"Now, I just want to make sure I keep throwing the ball well and not worry about my opponents," said Weber, who will take on No. 64 Bill Sell of Menasha, Wisconsin, in the opening round of match play. "If I do what I need to, I'll be happy. If I don't, I won't be happy, and I'll try something different."

Defending champion Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. who was guaranteed a spot in the bracket, qualified 20th with a 3,118 qualifying total. He'll take on No. 45 Ted Staikoff in his opening match Friday.

Competitors at the Senior Masters this week rolled 15 qualifying games over three days before the field was cut to the top 63 bowlers, who will join Williams in match play. Sell earned the final spot in the bracket with a 2,962 total, a 197.47 average.

All rounds of qualifying and match play are being broadcast live on BowlTV and will conclude with the stepladder finals Sunday at noon Eastern.

Weber Maintains Lead After USBC Senior Masters Second Round

by Jerry Schneider July 29, 2015 15:12

By Matt Cannizzaro, USBC Communications

Hall of Famer Pete Weber turned in a steady performance Wednesday at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley in Green Bay to maintain his lead at the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters after the second qualifying round.

The 52-year-old right-hander rolled games of 197, 206, 269, 226 and 257 for a 1,155 total, and his 2,338 two-day effort, a 233.8 average, puts him 84 pins ahead of fellow Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli who has toppled 2,254 pins in his first 10 games this week.

Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Oklahoma, the 2012 USBC Senior Masters champion, is third with 2,234, Brian LeClair is fourth with 2,214, and Mike Dias and Mark Williams are tied for fifth with 2,186.

Some might say Weber has a leg up on the competition this week in Green Bay after leading every qualifying round on the way to a third-place finish at the 2015 USBC Masters, which was held in the same bowling center in February, and he agrees that being familiar with the venue certainly is a factor in his continued success in The Badger State.

"I do like the house, and my guesses and ball choices have been good, too, but I also feel like I've been bowling well overall," said Weber, the 2013 Senior Masters winner. "In February, I learned to switch balls quicker when I get to a pair and start getting in trouble. I also remember some of the characteristics of the center, and that has helped."

Weber is hoping to win his second title of the season which would make it a PBA50 Tour major sweep having won the Suncoast Senior U.S. Open in June.

For Monacelli, experience definitely played a role in Wednesday's success.

The 53-year-old right-hander quickly realized what the fresh 40-foot lane condition was giving him, and he was able to confidently make a move that helped him score until the lanes opened up.

"I had no expectations for today," said Monacelli, who owns 19 PBA Tour titles and four PBA50 victories including the Northern California Classic earlier this season. "I had an idea, but that's never definite until I go out there and throw the ball. Today, it only took four frames for me to realize I started too far left. I moved right and changed balls and bowled well until I was able to move left to where I was yesterday."

Robert Brown of Cody, Wyoming, rolled the first perfect game of the Senior Masters during qualifying Wednesday. He finished the day 31st overall with a 2,056 total.

All 194 competitors will be back on the lanes for five more games Thursday as qualifying concludes with squads at noon and 6 p.m. Eastern.

After 15 games, the field will be cut to the top 63 bowlers, who will join defending champion Walter Ray Williams Jr. in the double-elimination match-play bracket.

Williams finished the second day in 44th place with a 2,032 total. Should he not make the top 63, he still is guaranteed the No. 64 spot in match play. He is looking to become the first player since Tom Baker of King, North Carolina, in 2007, to win the Senior Masters in consecutive years.

All rounds of qualifying and match play are being broadcast live on BowlTV and will conclude with the stepladder finals Sunday at noon Eastern.

All qualifying and match-play rounds at the Super Senior Classic also will be broadcast live on BowlTV.

PBA Spare Shots: China’s PBA Pioneers League Continues to Pursue PBA Status

by Bill Vint July 29, 2015 04:23

The Longmarch PBA Pioneers League in China is currently in its fifth season of working to develop players to PBA membership eligibility status. The PBA Pioneers League program involves rigorous three-day, 12-games-a-day qualifying events, and requires players to average at least 200 in order to meet the PBA’s minimum eligibility requirement before applying for membership.

Longmarch Bowling owner Frank Zhao, who founded the PBA league program, said 26 bowlers from all parts of China are competing in the current session, which got underway following a Brunswick-sponsored visit to China by PBA Tour champion Sean Rash, PBA Tour Reps Chuck Gardner and Pat Mitchell for a series of clinics, pro-ams and exhibitions.

Representatives of the Pioneers league program will travel to Reno in December to compete in the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VII, following in the footsteps of the first delegation of Chinese bowlers ever to compete in the WSOB last fall at South Point in Las Vegas.

Zhao also said it appears representatives of the China Bowling Association and the China Sport Bureau will join the Chinese PBA members in Reno this year as the world’s largest nation continues to pursue training and education for its emerging bowling programs.

PBA, PWBA MEMBERS WIN GOLD MEDALS IN PAN AMERICAN GAMES BOWLING

PBA member Dan MacLelland of Canada, and PBA/PWBA members Clara Guerrero of Colombia and Shannon Pluhowsky of Dayton, Ohio, were gold-medal winners in the recently-completed Pan American Games bowling competition in Toronto.

MacLelland and Wichita State University star Francois Lavoie won the men’s doubles gold medal with a 12-game combined total of 5,607 pins, topping Colombia’s Jaime Gonzalez and Manual Otalora by 318 pins and Team USA bronze medalists Tommy Jones and Devin Bidwell, who finished with 5,203 pins.

Guerrero and Rocio Restrepo won women’s doubles with 5074 pins, topping former PBA Women’s Series titlists Pluhowsky and Liz Johnson by 149 pins.

Brazil’s Marcelo Suartz won men’s singles with a 201-189 over PBA Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli, who was representing his home country of Venezuela. Monacelli defeated MacLelland, 187-178, and Suartz eliminated Bidwell, 202-182, in the semifinal round.

Pluhowsky, who also won women’s singles in 2003, got her second gold medal in the event with a 223-212 victory over Aumi Guerra of the Dominican Republic. Pluhowsky defeated Restrepo, 214-212, and Guerra defeated Johnson, 258-181, in the women’s semifinal round.

SEAN RASH TO FULFILL “WISH” FOR 11-YEAR-OLD OHIO BOY

Wohrer, who suffers from Ewing’s Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer that affects mostly young people, will bowl with Rash at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. Thursday morning, he will again meet Rash, have a bowling ball drilled on the PBA truck while touring the PBA’s equipment transport, and meet other PBA players.

Wohrer and his family will then be guests of the PBA and Olympia Lanes to attend the rest of the tournament.

PBA REGIONAL UPDATE: 22 YEARS LATER, STAIKOFF GETS FIRST PBA TITLE

With a bit of help from partner Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, PBA veteran Ted Staikoff of Black Hawk, S.D., won his first PBA title in 22 years as a member on Friday, July 24, when the duo won the PBA50 Treasure Island Resort & Casino Midwest Doubles title at Island Xtreme Bowl in Welch, Minn.

Weber Averages 236 to Take First Round Lead in USBC Senior Masters

by Jerry Schneider July 28, 2015 15:17

By Matt Cannizzaro, USBC Communications

PBA and USBC Hall of Famer Pete Weber returned to The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley in Green Bay, Wisconsin, both comfortable and confident after his last visit to the 60-lane center, and he set the pace through the first day of qualifying Tuesday at the 2015 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters.

The 52-year-old right-hander averaged more than 236 on the way to a 1,183 five-game total, 27 pins better than Ron Mohr of Las Vegas who finished the opening round with a 1,156 total.

Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Oklahoma, the 2012 USBC Senior Masters winner, is third with 1,149, Hall of Famer Mark Williams is fourth with 1,136 and five-time PBA titlist Marc McDowell of nearby Madison, Wisconsin, rounds out the top five with 1,134.

"I had an idea how the lanes were going to play, so I knew what kind of bowling balls and layouts I wanted to bring in," said Weber, who led qualifying and finished third at the 2015 USBC Masters, held at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley in February. "I don't plan on changing anything tomorrow, unless I need to. As long as I feel like I'm throwing the ball well, I won't have to worry about that. I just plan to keep doing what I'm doing."

Weber, who won the Senior Masters in 2013, knows the unique format essentially separates the tournament into two different events - qualifying and the double-elimination match-play bracket.

Weber is trying to sweep the PBA50 majors this season after winning the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open in June.

After 15 games of qualifying over three days, the top 63 bowlers will join defending champion and Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. in the bracket. Since all pinfall is dropped after qualifying, just getting there is the first goal for most competitors.

"Naturally, you want be the leader, but the main goal is to make the top 63," said Weber, who has 37 PBA Tour titles and four PBA50 wins. "Then, it's about winning matches and staying in the winners bracket."

Qualifying at the 2015 Senior Masters continues Wednesday with squads at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern. All rounds of qualifying and match play will be broadcast live on BowlTV, concluding with the stepladder finals Aug. 2 at noon Eastern.

The ninth tournament and second and final PBA50 Tour major of the season attracted an entry of 194 players ages 50 and older.

Williams finished the first day in a tie for 46th place with a 1,032 total. Should he not make the top 63, he still is guaranteed the No. 64 spot in match play. He is looking to become the first player since Tom Baker in 2007, to win the Senior Masters in consecutive years.
