Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio, earned high qualifier honors Thursday at the 2007 United States Bowling Congress Masters.

Loschetter finished with a 15-game total of 3,453, an average of 230.2, to lead the field of 485 of the best professional and amateur bowlers in the world at AMF Bowlero Lanes. He earned the top seed for double-elimination match play, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Eastern today.

The Denny's PBA Tour exempt player will be joined by 63 other athletes, including defending champion Doug Kent of Newark, N.Y., who will compete to determine the final four bowlers for the ESPN-televised finals on Sunday at 1 p.m. Eastern.

"I've got some momentum, but in my mind it's a whole new tournament now," Loschetter said. "I'm not going to be content to just do the same things I did in qualifying. You have to keep looking for new things out there."

Bill O'Neill of Levittown, Pa., earned the No. 2 seed with 3,433 while first and second round leader Derek Eoff of Greenfield, Wis., took third with 3,431. Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y., who finished second at last year's Masters, is fourth with 3,422.

The 2007 USBC Masters is a major on the Denny's PBA Tour and the athletes are competing for a top prize of $100,000 and an overall prize fund of $350,000.

The finals of the Masters will be held on Oct. 28 at 1 p.m. Eastern at Miller Park, home of Major League Baseball's Milwaukee Brewers, and televised live on ESPN.

For tickets to the finals, visit tickets.com, the Miller Park box office or call the Miller Park box office at (414) 902-4000. Tickets range in price from $12.50 to $77.50 and each ticket also includes admission to Bowlfest, a special event to be held at Miller Park on Oct. 27 from 6-9 p.m.
