Tom Baker Wins PBA50 Dayton Classic for 12th Career Title and Second of the Season

by Jerry Schneider July 31, 2014 13:38

 

Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Tom Baker of King, N.C., won the PBA50 Dayton Classic presented by Roto Grip Thursday to capture his 12th career PBA50 Tour title and second of the season.

The 59-year-old Baker defeated fellow Hall of Famer and top qualifier Norm Duke of Clermont, Fla., 265-217, in the title match at Capri Lanes to join Duke as the tour’s only two-time winners this season. The win also propelled Baker into a three-way tie for second on the PBA50 Tour career titles list with Gary Dickinson and Dale Eagle. John Handegard leads the list with 14 titles.

“When you bowl a great player like Norm you know you’re going to have your hands full,” said Baker, who also owns 10 PBA Tour titles. “I knew I was going to need a good game. I think we were all a little surprised that the lanes were playing a little straighter than we thought.

“I was fortunate to start the game with four strikes and Norm struggled so I was able to build up a little bit of a cushion which put me in good mindset as the match went on.”

Baker’s win avenged a loss to Duke in the title match of the UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages earlier this season which Duke won 256-228.

“I told Norm that now we’re even,” said Baker, who won his first title of the season in the Northern California Classic in June. “With two tournaments left this season hopefully we’ll meet again to bowl for a title, you never know.”

In the semifinal match, Baker defeated Hall of Famer Brian Voss of Alpharetta, Ga., 213-203, to advance to the title match. In the opening stepladder match, Voss defeated two-time PBA Tour winner Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y., 216-167. Jurek and Voss were both trying for their first PBA50 Tour title.

Heading into the final two tournaments of the season, Baker, a four-time PBA50 Player of the Year, moved into a tie with Pete Weber for second in the PBA50 Player of the Year points race, 12 points behind Duke who leads.

The PBA50 Tour travels to Hammond, Ind. Aug 4-7 for the PBA50 South Shore Open presented by DV8 to be followed by the season-ending Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open presented by Hammer in Welch, Minn., Aug. 10-13.

Mike Edwards Continues to Set Pace After Second Round in PBA50 Dayton Classic

by Jerry Schneider July 30, 2014 12:17

Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Okla., a titlist on the PBA Tour and PBA50 Tour, continued to set the pace after second round qualifying Wednesday in the PBA50 Dayton Classic presented by Roto Grip, leading 28 players who advanced to match play.

Edwards, who led after Tuesday’s first round, finished the second round at Capri Lanes with a 3,840 16-game pinfall total (240 average) to hold a 71-pin lead over Hall of Famer Tom Baker of King, N.C., in second with 3,769. Edwards bowled games of 279, 235, 229, 224, 247, 248, 177 and 238 in the second round.

“I’m able to stay ahead of my game and keep everything in front of me,” said the 52-year-old Edwards. “I haven’t had to change a whole lot which has enabled me to stay in a good rhythm.

“Anything can happen when you get to match play but it gives you a lot of confidence when you qualify well,” he added. “I’m going to stay with my game plan and just be prepared to go to plan B or C, but hopefully I won’t have to do that.”

Edwards, who owns one PBA Tour title, is trying for his second career PBA50 Tour title having won the 2012 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters in his PBA50 Tour rookie season. This season he has best finishes of third and eighth which came in the USBC Senior Masters and Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open, respectively.

Rounding out the top five were Jack Jurek, Lackawana, N.Y., 3,744; Hall of Famer and two-time defending PBA50 Player of the Year Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., 3,722, and Kerry Painter, Henderson, Nev., 3,720.

Last week’s Pro Bowl West Fort Wayne Classic winner Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., led a group of four Hall of Famers who finished sixth through ninth. Weber had a 3,686 pinfall followed by Dayton Classic defending champion Randy Pedersen, Orlando, 3,655; Norm Duke, Clermont, Fla., 3,634, and Brian Voss, Alpharetta, Ga., who tied for ninth with Tracy Teeters, Salem, Ore. with 3,623.

After Thursday’s match play rounds, the top four players will advance to the stepladder finals which are scheduled to get underway at 7 p.m. ET.

The final day of the Dayton Classic can be seen on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame.  For subscription and schedule information click on the Xtra Frame logo on the pba.com homepage.

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.

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.
