Mike Fagan Maintains Lead in PBA One A Day Dick Weber Open After First Round of Match Play

by Jason Thomas January 28, 2010 17:20

Mike Fagan of Patchogue, N.Y., maintained his lead in the PBA One A Day Dick Weber Open Thursday after the first eight-game match play round at Fountain Bowl.

Despite a 3-5 record, Fagan had a 5,297 overall 23-game pinfall to hold a 23-pin lead over Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. in second. Williams is the PBA Tour's all-time win leader with 46 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour titles.

“At some point in a tournament like this everyone is going to have times when they are struggling,” said Fagan. “The lanes were tough in match play but probably not as tough as it was for the other guys. I have some adjustments to make to gain a little more confidence for tomorrow.

“I still feel good but the important thing now is not to get ahead of myself.”

Fagan, who finished second in last season’s Dick Weber Open as a result of losing in the championship match to PBA Hall of Famer and defending champion Norm Duke 278-168, is hoping for his first individual Tour title. His lone win came in the 2007-08 season in the PBA Exempt Doubles Classic with partner Danny Wiseman.

Among other notables in the top 24 are 2005-06 PBA Player of the Year Tommy Jones in third, with 5,235 followed by last season’s Dick Weber Open fourth place finisher Ryan Shafer in fourth with 5,204.

Three other PBA Hall of Famers are also in the top 24; Amleto Monacelli in fifth with 5,178, Pete Weber, who finished third last year, in sixth with 5,132, and Duke in 13th with 5,022.

Competition continues on Friday with two more eight-game rounds of match play. The top five bowlers after match play advance to the stepladder finals that will be televised Sunday by ESPN2 at 1 p.m. Eastern (10 a.m. Pacific).
