Tommy Jones Leads After Two Rounds In PBA One A Day Earl Anthony Memorial

Tommy Jones of Greenville, S.C. averaged 235 to take the lead after two rounds in the Professional Bowlers Association One A Day Earl Anthony Memorial Thursday at Earl Anthony’s Dublin Bowl.

Jones, a 13-time Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour titlist, had a 3,290 14-game pinfall to hold a 49-pin lead over PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber in second with 3,241.

Jones had a 1,645 seven-game pinfall in Thursday’s early round and followed that up with an identical pinfall in the second round on games of 198, 269, 235, 221, 299, 234 and 189.

“It’s quite a difference from bowling the Tournament of Champions last week which was about the worst I’ve bowled in a tournament,” said Jones, who finished 91st in the Tournament of Champions. “But that tournament is over and it’s time to move on and that’s the mindset you have to have.

“Going into match play tomorrow the lanes will play differently but if I can get off to a good start I like my chances.”

Jones won the DyDo Japan Cup to close out the 2009-10 season and his best finish this season was third in the Pepsi Viper Championship.

The field has been cut to 32 players for match play on Friday. After match play concludes the four players will be determined for the stepladder finals which will air live on ESPN2 Sunday at 2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. Pacific.

Mika Koivuniemi, who won the Tournament of Champions and a record $250,000 first prize last week for his ninth PBA Tour title and third major, finished the day in 31st just making the cut with a 2,994 pinfall.

Earl Anthony Memorial defending champion Anthony LaCaze failed to advance to match play after finishing 45th.
