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.

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.

PBA50 Tour Visits Green Bay for USBC Senior Masters July 28-Aug. 2

by Jerry Schneider July 27, 2015 04:42

 

The USBC Senior Masters, the ninth stop and final major of the 2015 PBA50 Tour season, will headline with nearly 200 PBA and USBC members ages 50 and older set to take on the unique double-elimination format from July 28-Aug. 2 at Ashwaubenon Lanes in Green Bay, Wis..

USBC and PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Fla., is the defending Senior Masters champion. His 240-219 victory against No. 1 seed Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y., in 2014 in Las Vegas came in dramatic fashion when Williams collapsed the 2-4-5 combination to log a must-have strike in his final frame.

Williams, the 2004 (January) and 2010 USBC Masters champion, became the second bowler in history to win both the Masters and Senior Masters, joining fellow hall of famer Dave Soutar of Bradenton, Florida.

Now, the 55-year-old Williams looks to become the sixth competitor to win multiple Senior Masters titles and first to win in back-to-back years since USBC and PBA Hall of Famer Tom Baker of King, North Carolina, accomplished the feat in 2007.

Earlier this year, Williams finished tied for 78th in the 2015 Masters, which was held at The Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley, so he has some familiarity with the 60-lane facility.

As the defending Senior Masters champion, Williams automatically will have a spot in the three-game double-elimination bracket portion of the event. However, he will bowl qualifying to try and improve his seeding in the bracket. If he finishes outside of the top 63 in qualifying, he will earn the No. 64 spot in the bracket.

Qualifying begins Tuesday July 28 at 1 p.m. Eastern, and all players will bowl 15 games over three days to determine the 63 bowlers who will join Williams in match play. The player who survives the bracket to win the event will take home $18,000 of the estimated $128,000 prize fund.

After the Senior Masters, the International Training and Research Center Super Senior Classic, the premier event for USBC members age 60 and older, will get underway at Ashwaubenon Bowling Lanes Aug. 2-5, 

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

Competitors at the 2015 Super Senior Classic will compete for an estimated top prize of $4,000.

After 16 games of qualifying over two days, beginning Aug. 3, the top 25 percent of the field will advance to the four-game cashers' round, which will determine the five players for the stepladder finals.

Jim Knoblauch of Waukesha, Wisconsin, defeated defending champion Kerry Painter of Henderson, Nevada, 224-213, to win the 2014 Super Senior Classic at the ITRC in Arlington, Texas.

Parker Bohn III Wins Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open for Second PBA50 Tour Title of the Season

by Jerry Schneider July 22, 2015 15:00

In a title match featuring two PBA Hall of Fame players with a combined 71 titles on the PBA Tour, Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., defeated Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., to win the PBA50 Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open presented by Roto Grip Wednesday to notch his second PBA50 Tour title of the season.

Bohn, who solidified his position as a contender for PBA50 Player of the Year honors, defeated 37-time PBA Tour winner Weber, 259-238, in the championship match which was also his third career PBA50 Tour title.

In the title match, Bohn survived a potentially devastating open in the eighth frame when he left the 2-4-6-7-10 split which he failed to convert after bowling the first seven strikes of the match.

“The ball just hung up in my hand which threw off my push-away,” said Bohn, who has won 34 titles on the PBA Tour. “I wasn’t too worried because I had a pretty good lead at that point and I knew right away what to do to correct it.”

Bohn, who won the season-opening Pasco County Florida Open, did indeed correct the problem throwing strikes in the ninth and the first ball in the 10th which was enough to shut out Weber who was trying for his second win of the season after winning the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open in June.

As the No. 4 qualifier in the finals, Bohn had to win three matches against tough opponents to get to the championship match against Weber who was the No. 1 qualifier.

In the opening match Bohn defeated eight-time PBA50 Tour champion and two-time PBA50 Tour Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, 242-193. In a battle of lefthanders, Bohn defeated eight-time PBA Tour winner and PBA50 Tour rookie Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas, who was trying for his third win of the season, 268-216. In the semifinal match Bohn defeated Hall of Famer and 25-time PBA Tour winner Brian Voss of Centennial, Colo., 258-202, who was trying for his first PBA50 Tour win.

“I know it sounds like a cliché but you have to take one game and one tournament at a time, especially at this point in the season,” Bohn said. “When you look at a finals lineup like we had tonight with this much talent, if you even think about thinking too far ahead you’re asking for trouble.”

By winning the title Bohn joined Scroggins, also a Player of the Year contender and leading contender for Rookie of the Year, as the only two-time winners this season.

In addition to the race for PBA Player of the Year, the top eight in points will earn entries into the GEICO World Series of Bowling VII in Reno this December where they will vie for the two championship match spots in the PBA Challenge finals which will be televised by ESPN. Weber, Scroggins, Bohn and Mohr are all presently solidly in the top eight in points.

The PBA50 Tour travels to Ashwaubenon Bowling Lanes in Green Bay, Wis. July 27-Aug. 2 for the United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters. The Senior Masters is the second and final major of the season.
