WEBB WEAVES EARLY LEAD IN INDIANA

by PBA Editor August 4, 2008 19:00
 It took a few equipment changes along the way, but Wayne Webb was able to get into a groove during the early session on Tuesday, and held on for the lead with a total of 1,996 pins in first-round action at the PBA Senior Lake County Indiana Open at Olympia Lanes.
 
Webb of Sacramento, Calif., narrowly edged out Dennis Psaropoulos of Lake Worth, Fla. who finished Tuesday with 1,962 pins. Webb’s scores for the eight games were: 205, 233, 278, 269, 235, 287, 278 and 211.
 
“They’ve been pretty high scoring games, just as they have been the last few tournaments,” Webb said. “I shot with the wrong ball at first, so I switched balls and I found a really good shot and was striking a lot. But then I was having problems again and I had to switch balls again, and I began scoring around 270, 280, but the last game was only 211. Overall, I felt like I really threw the ball well.”
 
Ron Mohr of Eagle River, Alaska, shot a 300 in his fifth game of Tuesday’s first round. This is his second consecutive tournament that he has done so. He also shot a 300 in the Northern California Classic in June. Mohr currently sits in seventh place with 1,937.
 
Webb is confident that he can continue his success in Hammond.
 
“I practiced a little harder before I came out here and I did some things to get my arm loose,” Webb said. “I feel like when I came out here I was bowling better than the last swing. I had a lot of confidence coming into this.”
 
Qualifying resumes Wednesday at 9 a.m.
