Oregon’s Croucher Averages 251 to Lead Qualifying After Second Round In PBA Sun Bowl In The Villages

Kevin Croucher of Grants Pass, Ore., averaged 251.6 to lead qualifying after the second round Monday in the PBA50 Sun Bowl In The Villages presented by Hammer at Spanish Springs Lanes.

Croucher, who owns one PBA50 Tour title and five regional titles, finished qualifying with a 4,027 16-game pinfall total after bowling 1,960 in the first round and finishing with games of 279, 298, 227, 258, 257, 258, 255 and 235 in his second eight-game round.

“Last year I only bowled three tournaments but this year I plan to bowl as many as I can,” said the 57-year-old bowling proprietor. “The last three months I’ve been working on my game pretty extensively to get ready for this season and it looks like it’s paying off so far.”

Croucher’s PBA50 Tour win came in the 2007 Senior Decatur (Ill.) Open. Last season his best finish was 11th in the Northern California Classic.

Croucher leads 32 players who advanced to Tuesday’s match play rounds. Rounding out the top five were Bo Goergen, Sanford, Mich., 3,988; Reigning PBA50 Player of the Year and Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., 3,886; Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli, Venezuela, 3,861, and Don Sylvia, Lady Lake, Fla., 3,856.

Joe Scarborough of Mars Hill, N.C., who bowled the first 900 series in PBA history during first round qualifying on Sunday, failed to advance to match play finishing in a tie for 49th with a 3,573 pinfall.

The top 32 players from Monday’s second round advanced to match play which begins at 9 a.m. ET. After match play, the top four players will advance to the stepladder finals at 7 p.m.
