Bryan Goebel Averages 240 to Lead Qualifying In PBA50 Miller High Life Classic

Bryan Goebel, a 10-time winner on the PBA Tour, averaged 240 to emerge as the leader after second round qualifying Tuesday in the PBA50 Miller High Life Classic presented by Columbia 300 at George Pappas’ Victory Lanes.

Goebel, who had a 16-year career on the PBA Tour from 1989 until 2004-05, finished qualifying with a 3,851 16-game pinfall total bowling games of 266, 217, 232, 269, 242, 200, 216 and 268 in Tuesday’s second round.

“I felt like I bowled slightly better today,” said Goebel, who finished third in qualifying after the first round. “Even though I scored well I felt a little lost yesterday. I made some adjustments today so now I just need to come out firing in match play and hopefully catch a few breaks.”

Goebel leads a field of 40 players advancing to Wednesday’s match play rounds which begin at 11 a.m ET. Round of 8 and championship rounds will get underway at 7:30 p.m.

Goebel finished second in last week’s Greater Birmingham Open for his best PBA50 Tour finish to date, losing to Hall of Famer Tom Baker in a dramatic championship match, 227-226.

The 51-year-old Goebel from Shawnee, Kan., is competing in his second season on the PBA50 Tour after bowling in just four tournaments in 2012 where he had a best finish of 22nd in the Senior Don Carter Memorial.

“I had a lot of things going on last year including selling my share of the pro shop and was really only competing at about 80 percent,” Goebel said. “This year I’m going to give it a hundred percent and hopefully the results will show.”

Rounding out the top eight who earned two match play round byes were Dale Csuhta, Wadsworth, Ohio, 3,799; two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr, Eagle River, Alaska, 3,770; Lennie Boresch Jr., Kenosha, Wis., 3,769; reigning PBA50 Player of the Year Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., 3,754; Bob Learn Jr., Erie, Pa., 3,747; Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia, Jackson, N.J.; 3,740 and Hugh Miller, Seattle, 3,696.

Joe Scarborough of Charlotte, who rolled the first 900 series in PBA history in the recent PBA50 Sun Bowl In The Villages, advanced to match play finishing qualifying in 23rd with 3,508.
