The top 24 players for round-robin match play have been determined for the 66th Lumber Liquidators Professional Bowlers Association U.S. Open after Friday’s nine-game qualifying round at Brunswick Zone Carolier.
 
Reigning PBA Player of the Year Chris Barnes who has battled Hall of Famer Norm Duke for the  tournament lead with is again on top with a 5,913 27-game pinfall (219 average) followed by Duke who is 38 pins behind.
 
In addition to Barnes and Duke, the other Player of the Year contender Wes Malott, who has won three titles this season, also squeaked into the top 24 with a 5,598 pinfall (207 average) good for 22nd.
 
Also making a steady climb throughout the tournament is Hall of Famer Pete Weber who is trying to become the event’s first five-time winner. He currently ranks sixth with a 5,713 pinfall (211 average).
 
“Never count anyone out with nine-game blocks,” Weber said.
 
Also making match play were members of PBA’s Greatest 50 club, Tommy Jones (third), Doug Kent (fourth), Amleto Monacelli (seventh) Mike Scroggins (ninth) and Mika Koivuniemi (10th). 
 
The top amateur is local favorite Sean Riccardi of Piscataway, N.J. in a tie for 13th.
 
Failing to make the cut were top female competitors Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y. (27th) and Lindsay Baker of Amherst, N.Y. (43rd).
 
The top 24 will compete in a round-robin qualifying round this evening and two more rounds on Saturday to determine the top five for the ESPN stepladder finals which will take place Sunday at 1 p.m. Eastern.
 
The winner earns a $100,000 prize and a three-year PBA Tour exemption.
