Fairleigh Dickinson’s Melanie Hannon Receives 2014 PBA Billy Welu Scholarship

by Jerry Schneider July 28, 2014 06:53

 

The PBA announced today that Melanie Hannon, a sophomore at Fairleigh Dickinson University, has been awarded the PBA’s Bill Welu Scholarship award for 2014.

The Welu scholarship was established to annually recognize a college student who combines outstanding bowling talents with academic excellence.

Hannon, of Cheektowaga, N.Y., has had a very productive year in 2014 earning NCAA and Northeast Conference Rookie of the Year honors as well as First Team All-American honors bowling for the FDU Knights. She also earned a spot on Junior Team USA 2015 as top qualifier in the U20 division of the 2014 USBC Junior Gold Championships.

She was selected to the Dexter High School All-America Team in 2010-11 and in 2011 and 2012 was a Teen Masters finalist. Locally, she was named the Greater Buffalo USBC Female Bowler of the Year in 2010, 2011 and 2012. She has been involved with the Greater Buffalo USBC Youth Leaders since 2007, serving as president from 2010-2013. She received USBC’s Alberta E. Crowe Star of Tomorrow Award in 2013.

Among her other bowling accomplishments include three New York State Pepsi Tournament titles (2011, 2012 and 2013), 2011 North Pointe Singles Championship title, and a top finish of sixth in the Junior Gold Championships which came in 2013.

“I’m very honored to win a scholarship where you know there are so many other great candidates who are being considered for it,” Hannon said. “Bowling has been very important to me not only because of the lessons I’ve learned in the sport but what it has also taught me in life including the importance of qualities such as teamwork, persistence and determination.”

Scholastically, Hannon, who is studying nursing at Fairleigh Dickinson, holds a 3.76 GPA and is a member of the honor roll.

Hannon will receive a $1,000 scholarship. To be eligible candidates must be amateur bowlers who are currently in college (preceding the application date) and maintaining at least a 2.5/4.0 GPA or equivalent.

Welu, who passed away in 1974, was best known for his expert analysis alongside legendary ABC broadcaster and PBA Hall of Famer Chris Schenkel on the “Pro Bowlers Tour” series. Welu was a two-time PBA Tour champion and a member of the PBA Hall of Fame’s inaugural induction class in 1975.

Pete Weber Wins PBA50 Pro Bowl West Fort Wayne Classic For Third Career PBA50 Tour title

by Jerry Schneider July 23, 2014 14:10

After five top-eight finishes, PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber finally broke through to win his first PBA50 Tour title of the season Wednesday by winning the PBA50 Pro Bowl West Fort Wayne Classic presented by Ebonite.

Weber defeated fellow Hall of Famer and PBA Tour telecast color analyst Randy Pedersen of Orlando, Fla., 259-207, in the title match at Pro Bowl West, also notching his third career PBA50 Tour title.

Pedersen, trying for his second career PBA50 Tour title, jumped out to the early lead in the title match with the first three strikes, but ran into trouble in the seventh frame when he missed the 2-10 split. Weber took control by the mid-point of the match striking in seven of the first eight frames.

“We were all leaving a lot of corner pins so I thought it was a good time to change to a different ball for the final match,” said the 51-year-old Weber. “The lane conditions were transitioning pretty quickly and the ball wasn’t driving into the pocket like it should so I went to a ball that hooked more and revved sooner and it was the right choice.”

With his win, Weber, who recently won his fourth ESPY, moved into second in the PBA50 Player of the Year race behind Hall of Famer Norm Duke with three tournaments remaining in the season. Duke did not compete in the Fort Wayne event.

“If you want to be the best, you have to keep at it,” said the 37-time PBA Tour winner and 2013 PBA50 Rookie of the Year. “I still look at guys like Walter Ray (Williams Jr.) and the other great bowlers and that’s what keeps me going. I still love to bowl and love to travel.”

In the all-Hall of Fame semifinals, Weber beat Wayne Webb of Columbus, Ohio, 223-210, and Pedersen defeated Johnny Petraglia of Jackson, N.J., 207-192, to advance to the championship match.

Bill McCorkle of Westerville, Ohio, who won the PBA50 Dick Weber Super Senior Classic presented by Storm on July 20 at Pro Bowl West, made a run at winning back-to-back tournaments but lost to Pedersen in the Round of 8.

Petraglia, trying for his ninth career PBA50 Tour title, finished second to McCorkle in the Super Senior Classic, losing in the championship match 244-173.

Weber’s win marked seven of nine PBA50 Tour tournaments this season which have been won by PBA Hall of Famers.  His previous best finishes this season were second in the PBA50 Miller High Life Classic and Suncoast Senior U.S. Open.

The PBA50 Tour moves to Capri Lanes in Kettering, Ohio, July 28-31 for the PBA50 Dayton Classic presented by Roto Grip, the 10th stop of the season.

Pete Weber Tops PBA50 Pro Bowl West Fort Wayne Classic Qualifying

by Jerry Schneider July 22, 2014 13:34

 

Trying for his first PBA50 Tour win of the season, Pete Weber moved a step closer to that goal Tuesday by taking the lead after the second round of the PBA50 Pro Bowl West Fort Wayne Classic presented by Ebonite.

The PBA Hall of Famer and 2013 PBA50 Rookie of the Year bowled games of 289, 222, 258, 238, 258, 257, 244 and 247 in Tuesday’s second round at Pro Bowl West to top the field with a 16-game overall pinfall of 3,982.

“It’s a higher scoring condition so it’s a matter of finding the right ball and angle to the pocket, then it’s just going through the motions,” said Weber who recently won ESPN’s Best Bowler ESPY. “The goal was to finish in the top eight to get the two byes for match play and from there it’s up to me to finish the job.

“I’ll have plenty of time to relax before match play so I’ll have time to be as prepared as I can be.”

The field has been cut to 32 players for match play but Weber and the seven other finishers in the top eight receive two match play round byes.

Weber, a 37-time winner on the PBA Tour, held a 59-pin lead over Hall of Famer and PBA Tour telecast color commentator Randy Pedersen who finished the round in second with 3,923.

Rounding out the top eight were Mike Edwards, Tulsa, Okla., 3,826; Wayne Webb, Columbus, Ohio, 3,794; Mike Henry, Brunswick, Ohio, 3,784; Harry Sullins, Chesterfield Twp., Mich., 3,772; Kent Wagner, Palmetto, Fla., 3,756, and Ron Mohr, Las Vegas, 3,748.

Weber won two titles in his first season on the PBA50 Tour including the USBC Senior Masters. This season he has five top-eight finishes including second-place finishes in the Suncoast Senior U.S. Open and PBA50 Miller High Life Classic, and a fourth-place finish in the USBC Senior Masters.

Wednesday’s match play gets underway at 10 a.m. ET with the championship rounds scheduled for 7 p.m.

Ohio’s Bill McCorkle Wins Inaugural PBA50 Dick Weber Super Senior Classic for First PBA50 Title

by Jerry Schneider July 20, 2014 07:01

 

Bill McCorkle of Westerville, Ohio, won the biggest tournament of his professional career Sunday by defeating PBA Hall of Famer and eight-time PBA50 Tour winner Johnny Petraglia in the championship match of the PBA50 Dick Weber Super Senior Classic presented by Storm.

In the inaugural event for PBA50 Tour players ages 60 and over, McCorkle defeated the top-seeded Petraglia 244-173 at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne to record his first PBA50 Tour title.

McCorkle got off to the early lead stringing the first five strikes while Petraglia struggled missing the 2-4-6-10 split in the first frame and the 1-3-6-7 washout in the fifth frame.

“I’ve been bowling in PBA competition for 40 years and never won at the national level so I’m a little overwhelmed,” said the 61-year-old McCorkle whose best previous PBA50 Tour finish was sixth. “I was fortunate to get off to a good start but then I had to remind myself to stay loose and continue to throw good shots.

“Toward the end of the match I started to get a little emotional but then I looked over at the Dick Weber trophy and thought what would Dick do, and at that moment I was able to get the inspiration I needed.”

McCorkle qualified second for the stepladder final thanks to a 11-1 record in match play.

“My goal was to make the top five,” McCorkle said. “I think I benefited from the tougher condition because it enabled me to throw harder which I like to do. The big games weren’t out there so there was a premium on making good shots.”

In the opening stepladder match one-time PBA50 Tour winner No. 4 seed Dave Patchen of Oregon, Ohio, defeated one-time PBA50 Tour winner No. 5 seed Mike Henry of Brunswick, Ohio, 258-190, and then went on to beat Don Blatchford of Santa Monica, Calif., 207-202, in the second match to eventually finish third. McCorkle defeated Patchen 212-195 in the semifinal to advance to the title match.

PBA50 Tour action continues Monday with the start of the PBA50 Pro Bowl West Fort Wayne Classic presented by Ebonite open to all PBA50 Tour players ages 50 and over. The first qualifying round will get underway at 10 a.m.

Xtra Frame to Cover Landmark PBA50 Tour Doubleheader July 18-23 at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne

by Jerry Schneider July 14, 2014 06:08

After a three-week break, the PBA50 Tour returns to action July 18-23 for a landmark PBA50 Tour doubleheader at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne, Ind., which will be covered live in its entirety on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame.

For the first time, PBA will conduct the PBA50 Dick Weber Super Senior Classic presented by Storm for super seniors (players 60 years of age and older) July 18-20 followed immediately by the regular PBA50 Tour Pro Bowl West Classic presented by Ebonite July 21-23 which is for players 50 and older including the super seniors who wish to enter.

A field of approximately 120 players is expected for the inaugural Super Senior Classic which includes PBA50 Super Senior Player of the Year frontrunners Johnny Petraglia and Dale Eagle, both PBA Hall of Famers.

The Pro Bowl West Classic is the eighth stop of the PBA50 Tour this season and will include several PBA Hall of Famers who will resume the stretch run for 2014 PBA50 Player of the Year honors.

Leading the list of PBA50 Player of the Year contenders entered are two-time defending PBA50 Player of the Year and PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. and fellow Hall of Famer and 2013 PBA50 Rookie of the Year Pete Weber.

Williams, who is second in POY points 13 points behind Norm Duke, owns eight PBA50 Tour titles including the United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters which he won in June for his first PBA50 major. Weber, who is third in POY points, will be trying for his third career PBA50 Tour win and first of the season in Fort Wayne.

Tied with Weber for third in POY points is Tom Baker followed by Parker Bohn III and Amleto Monacelli who are tied for fourth. Baker, Bohn and Monacelli have all won titles this season on the PBA50 Tour.

Duke, who currently leads the PBA50 POY points list, is not expected to compete because of a prior commitment but is expected to bowl in the final three tournaments of the season.

All of the remaining 2014 PBA50 Tour tournaments will be carried live via PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame. Subscription and schedule information is available by visiting www.xtraframetv.com.

The Dick Weber Super Senior Classic will begin with a six-game qualifying round at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 18. All players will return for second-round qualifying Saturday, July 19 at 11 a.m. which will determine the top 32 players for the first round of match play beginning at 5 p.m. Match play continues on Sunday, July 20 at 8:30 a.m. with the five-player stepladder scheduled for 1:30 p.m.

Competition for the Pro Bowl West Classic begins Monday July 21 with an eight-game qualifying round at 10 a.m. ET. All players will return for the second qualifying round at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 22 which will determine the top 40 who will advance to match play elimination rounds on Wednesday, July 23 at 10 a.m. The championship rounds begin at 7 p.m.

Admission for both tournaments is $8 per day or a $25 pass is available which is good for all days of both tournaments. Bowling fans can also compete in a pro-am that enables them to bowl with the pros which is scheduled for July 20 at 7 p.m. Entry fee is $50 which includes the bowling fee, T-shirt, tournament program and a buffet dinner.
