4月の宮崎から2ヶ月ぶりの女子トーナメントとあって、激しい戦いが繰り広げられたJFEカップ2013千葉女子オープン。

準決勝では松永裕美と長縄多禧子がパーフェクトを達成してトップを走る姫路 麗を追い、ディフェンディングチャンピオン川口富美恵と松下聖子が圏外から飛び込むなどの熱いドラマを見せてくれましたが、なんといっても劇的な追い風が吹いたのは大山由里香でしょう。

今大会のラウンドロビンでは上位3名のみが決勝へ進出。直前の7G目で敗北した霜出佳奈選手と再戦しなければならないとあって、ポジションマッチ時点で4位の大山には決勝への切符が渡らない可能性が大きいように思われました。

しかし、霜出選手にミスが出てスコアが伸びず、大山がワンマーク差で勝利して2位に浮上。ここで大山に最初の追い風が吹きます。

二度目の追い風は決勝ステップラダー3位決定戦。ほぼ互角の展開で迎えた終盤、9フレーム目を大山がオープンにすると、姫路は9フレーム目からダブルを決めます。

大山がパンチアウトしても姫路の10フレーム2投目が9ピンなら同点、ストライクなら姫路の勝利という場面で、なんと痛恨のスプリット。大山はきっちりとパンチアウトを決め、わずか1ピン差で姫路を下します。

優勝決定戦では4年ぶりの千葉V2を果たしたい松永との対戦に。

松永はレーンに悩みながらもボールチョイスが功を奏し、滑り出しから5連続ストライクに成功。しかし後半から左レーンに捕まってしまった松永はストライクが繋がらなくなり、9フレーム目に6・7番を残すスプリット。確実に1ピンを取りに行くという選択肢を捨てて強気で攻めますがこれはオープンに。対する大山はターキーを決めて松永に追いつき、10フレ勝負にもつれ込みます。

まず1投目、松永がストライク。大山は2番ピンを残し9カウントに。これで松永が2投目もストライクを決めれば逆転優勝という目が出て来ましたが、ここまで大山を押し上げてきた追い風はここで大山を終わらせる気はありません。

松永が2投目で6番ピンを残し、これをカバーして225ピンでフィニッシュ。

これで大山の3投目が8ピンなら松永の勝利、9ピンならば同点で昨年の東海女子オープンの再来となるワンショットプレーオフの延長戦、ストライクなら優勝という状況の中、三度目の追い風に吹かれた大山のボールはすべてのピンを薙ぎ払います。

決勝ステップラダーで2戦して2戦とも1ピン差での勝利という、まさに薄氷を踏むような展開となりましたが、女王・松永を下して大山が千葉初制覇を果たしました!

ポジションマッチ3位霜出選手対4位大山由里香の戦いは、前半楽勝ムードの大山が9フレ10フレと続けて7本スプリットミスで4位後退の雰囲気、しかし霜出選手も10フレ4番ヒピンをイージーミスで復活!上位の姫路 麗が松永裕美に181で敗れた為、大山は2位で決勝ステップラダーへ!

Perfect Finish Helps Jason Belmonte Win Lucas Oil PBA Bear Open for Seventh Career Title

Australia’s Jason Belmonte finished with a string of seven strikes to rally past Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, 235-211, and capture his seventh Professional Bowlers Association Tour title in the Lucas Oil PBA Bear Open at AMF Bowlero.

The third of five GEICO PBA Summer Swing presented by Lucas Oil telecasts aired Tuesday on CBS Sports Network.

Belmonte, who failed to convert the 2-4 in the second frame, trailed Barnes by nine pins in the fifth frame, but reeled off seven straight strikes to overtake Barnes for the title and a berth in the GEICO Summer King of the Swing special event that will conclude the Milwaukee summer series.

“I just needed to calm down,” the 29-year-old two-handed power player said. “I think I came out of the gate pressing a little, trying to get an early lead. (Barnes) opened a couple of times, and I thought that would be my chance to jump on him, but I threw the ball a little too quick.

“After he started to strike, I could see his ball motion was much slower than mine, so I said, you know what – he’s moved left and slowed down a little bit, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do, too. Once I let the ball do its thing, it looked amazing going through the pins. It looked like if there were 20 pins down there, it would have struck.”

It was the second time Belmonte has met Barnes in a title match, and his second win. He also defeated Barnes for the 2011 Shark Open title during the PBA World Series of Bowling III in Las Vegas, 243-213.

“Chris Barnes, in my opinion, is one of the greatest bowlers on the planet for the last five years,” Belmonte said. “It makes the win just a little more important for me.

“I enjoy playing against guys like Chris,” Belmonte added. “You want to walk off the lanes feeling like you’ve beaten the ultimate. It’s very rewarding.”

The Bear Open was contested on a flat 40-foot lane conditioning pattern, a scoring environment similar to the U.S. Open which is traditionally the most challenging event in PBA Tour competition.

With his second title of the 2012-13 season, Belmonte has established himself as a leading contender in the PBA Player of the Year race. He won the United States Bowling Congress Masters earlier in the season, and also finished second in two other major championships, the PBA World Championship and Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions.

“Player of the Year is on my radar, but it’s a little dot that is very faint and very far away at this point,” he said. “There’s still a lot of bowling left, including the U.S. Open and the entire World Series of Bowling this fall. Anything can happen. After being so close last year (Belmonte finished second in Player of the Year voting to Sean Rash), I’m certainly not going to count my chickens before they hatch. If I win the U.S. Open and a couple of times at the World Series, I’ll put it beyond doubt and relax a little.”

Canada’s Dan MacLelland, bidding for his first PBA Tour title, started the Bear Open finals with a 197-169 victory over 2011 USBC Masters winner Tom Hess of Urbandale, Iowa, and eliminated newly-crowned Wolf Open champ Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio, 223-200, in the second match. Barnes ended MacLelland’s bid to become the third consecutive first-time titlist – and first Canadian ever to win a PBA Tour title – in the semifinal match, 214-187.

The finals of the Lucas Oil Milwaukee Open, the fourth event in the GEICO PBA Summer Swing series, will air next Tuesday, July 2, at 7 p.m. ET. The qualifying rounds of the Badger, Wolf and Bear Opens determined the players who advanced to the match play finals of the Milwaukee Open at AMF Bowlero. Match play rounds were contested on the Bear, Wolf and Badger lane conditions. Advancing to the stepladder finals after a total of 59 games were top qualifier Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas; Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo.; Norm Duke of Clermont, Okla.; Mike Fagan of Fort Worth, Texas, and Jason Sterner of McDonough, Ga.

Walter Ray Wins PBA50 Northern California Classic to Become Season’s First Two-time Winner

Walter Ray Williams Jr. survived a roll-off after the championship match to successfully defend his PBA50 Northern California Classic presented by Track title Wednesday at Harvest Park Bowl becoming the first two-time winner this season.

Williams, the reigning PBA50 Player of the Year, defeated amateur Pete Thomas of Oklahoma City, 20-19 in a two-frame roll-off after the players tied with a 223 game. Both players struck in the first frame of the roll-off but Williams struck on the second ball and Thomas could only manage a nine-count leaving the 2 pin. In the 10th frame of the title match, Williams needed the second strike to win the match outright but went nine-spare to force the tie.

“That was a little more exciting than I wanted it to be,” said the PBA Hall of Famer of the title match. “It was kind of a reflection of how tough all my matches were. None of them were easy which made it a tough day but all the more rewarding in the end.”

Williams, who won his sixth career PBA50 Tour title, won a best-of-five game match against Joe Goldstein of San Bruno, Calif., 3-2, and a best-of-three match against Bob Learn Jr. of Erie, Pa., to advance to the semifinal match where he beat Kevin Croucher of Grants Pass, Ore., 253-209 to advance to the championship match.

“Except for one frame I used the same ball the whole tournament,” said Williams, who won the PBA50 Sun Bowl In The Villages earlier this season. “With a few adjustments I was able to keep the ball in play and get to the pocket consistently.”

Thomas, bowling in his fifth PBA50 Tour event, defeated Hall of Famer Dale Eagle of Tavares, Fla., 248-224, in the other semifinal to advance to the title match. Thomas was trying to become the first amateur to win a PBA50 tournament since Nick Morgan of Sacramento, Calif., won the Northern California Classic in 2008.

With three tournaments remaining in the season, Williams’ win moved him into the PBA50 Player of the Year points lead with 42 points, followed by Amleto Monacelli of Venezuela with 40, and Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., in third with 29. The top three in points will earn a trip to Las Vegas in early November for the televised PBA50 Finals which will be part of World Series of Bowling V at the South Point Bowling Center.

The PBA50 Tour season takes a six-week break before returning to Hammond, Ind., for the PBA50 South Shore Open presented by DV8 Aug. 5-8.

Loschetter’s Nine-Year Quest Ends with Lucas Oil PBA Wolf Open Victory

Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio, ended his nine-year quest for a Professional Bowlers Association Tour title when he defeated four-time PBA Tour winner Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa., 264-231, to win the Lucas Oil PBA Wolf Open at AMF Bowlero.

The second of five GEICO PBA Summer Swing presented by Lucas Oil telecasts aired Tuesday on CBS Sports Network.

Loschetter, 33, who had finished second four times during a PBA Tour career that began in 2003 and included 153 previous events, followed a pair of poor shots in the third and fourth frames with a near-perfect finish to run away from O’Neill for the win. Loschetter entered the Wolf Open finals as the top qualifier, claiming that honor in the preliminary rounds at AMF West by two pins over PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke of Clermont, Fla.

“I’ve put in thousands of hours in this game and to finally win is what matters to me,” Loschetter said. “To say I’m a champion is amazing. I didn’t think for a long time that was ever going to happen. It finally did.”

Loschetter admitted it was increasingly disappointing to know that O’Neill and Mike Fagan, among others – guys who started their careers about the same time he did – had titles while he was left behind.

“Bill’s an amazing bowler,” Loschetter said. “I got to see him and Fagan and all the guys coming up with me win, and it’s been very hard. I’ve been very happy for them because they’re great guys in addition to being great bowlers. But it’s been very hard to watch.

“I had a lot of people telling me to get that first win,” he added. “They mean well and I appreciated it, but it’s hard to keep hearing. I had to deal with all of those thoughts going through my head. I woke up at 7 this morning and I was thinking all of the crazy things that could happen. I had to let it go. I didn’t know if I could, but I did. Finally. I finally have a title. It’s my lifelong dream.”

Along with his first title, Loschetter qualified for the PBA Tournament of Champions for the first time and he secured a berth in the GEICO Summer King of the Swing special event, the concluding event of the Summer Swing.

O’Neill, who entered the finals as the No. 5 qualifier, nipped PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., 222-221, in the opening match. He then spoiled the PBA television debut of 20-year-old rookie E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind., 234-204, and used a string of six consecutive strikes to rally past Duke in the semifinal match, 233-206.

The Wolf Open was contested on a 32-foot lane conditioning pattern – the shortest in the PBA’s series of eight animal patterns.

The finals of the Lucas Oil Bear Open, the third event in the GEICO PBA Summer Swing series, will air next Tuesday, June 25, at 7 p.m. ET. The preliminary rounds of the Bear Open were contested on a flat 40-foot lane condition pattern – similar to the demanding pattern used in the U.S. Open – at AMF Bowlero. Advancing to the Bear Open finals were top qualifier Jason Belmonte, Australia; Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas; Loschetter; Dan MacLelland of Canada, and Tom Hess of Urbandale, Iowa.

パーフェクト2個、7-10スプリットメイドも飛び出して、真夏日の大阪にあってさらに熱く盛り上がったROUND1CUP。

最終日の今日はカットライン231AVGの激戦を勝ち抜いた12名による決勝ラウンドロビンからスタートしました。

12名中9名が20~30歳代と若手が多く出揃いましたが、最年長62歳の原田招雄がトップシードで決勝ステップラダーへ進出。

その後へ斉藤琢哉、山本 勲の若手レフティが続き、永野すばると斉藤祐哉がディフェンディングチャンピオン・川添奨太と三つ巴の争いの末に残り2席を奪取。永野VS斉藤祐による5位決定戦からファイナルステージが始まりました。

1984年生まれ同士の対戦は斉藤祐が4連続スタートで滑り出すも後半、イージーミスを連発しオープンフレームが続出。同い年ながらも斉藤祐より9年早くプロデビューした永野は、9年間の重みとも言うべき40ピン以上の差を付けて圧勝。山本との対戦へと進みます。

4位決定戦、永野が出だしから5連続でストライクを決める一方、山本はストライクが決まらず我慢のボウリングに。ノーミスは守ったものの6フレーム目のスプリットをカバーし、さらにターキーへと繋いだ永野に届かず、山本の4位が確定します。

しかし続く3位決定戦では、初優勝まであと2つとなった永野に力が入り過ぎたか、右レーンに捕まってしまい一転してストライクが繋がりません。

兄・斉藤祐哉との兄弟対決を永野に阻まれた弟・斉藤琢哉はダブルで滑り出すと中盤にターキーを決め、7フレーム目でオープンを出すも永野をかわして逃げ切りました。

優勝決定戦では初優勝を目前にした斉藤琢の前に、2009年のMKチャリティカップで川西広次が60歳2ヶ月で立てた最年長優勝記録を更新するべく原田が立ち塞がります。

直前に開催されたHANDACUPプロボウリングマスターズで、最年長パーフェクト記録更新合戦を繰り広げた同期の山崎行夫と柴田英徳に大いに発奮させられたと語る原田は、3フレーム目からのターキーの直後に10番ピンが飛ばなかったからと、即座に立ち位置を変えて挑む柔軟な戦いを見せ、斉藤琢に若さだけでは太刀打ちできない強さを見せつけます。

終盤、さらに4連続ストライクを決め、斉藤琢をまさに突き放した原田、プロ入り40年の節目を飾る嬉しい完全勝利で、男子最年長優勝記録を更新して「60歳を過ぎても第一線で立派に戦える」ことを証明してみせました!

 

和田秀和がナインテントーナメント制覇!

地元大阪の大声援に応えました!

大会最終日の今日、決勝ステップラダーに先駆けてROUND1CUP恒例・ナインテントーナメントのTVファイナルが行われました。

ラウンドワン所属のホストプロ・小林哲也と、平山陽一による3位決定戦は小林が勝利。

ベテランの北岡義実と本大会でも決勝ラウンドロビン進出を果たした和田秀和による優勝決定戦は、「駆け引きを楽しみたい」と語った和田が大先輩・北岡にワンマーク差で勝利し、賞金40万円を獲得しました。

Pete Weber Wins USBC Senior Masters for First PBA50 Tour Title

PBA and USBC Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., claimed the 2013 USBC Senior Masters title in dramatic fashion Friday for his first PBA50 Tour title.

Weber delivered a clutch finish after fellow USBC Hall of Famer Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., gave him an opening in the final frame. Weber struck on his first shot in the 10th frame to lock up the win, 229-205, at the South Point Bowling Center.

"Even though it's a senior tournament, it ranks right up there with all my other wins," said Weber, who turned 50 in August to become eligible to compete on the PBA50 Tour. "I don't care if it's a senior major or a regular major. All majors are what make you great. I just can't wait for the regular Masters to come along now."

Weber was given a chance to take the title after Boresch stepped up in the final frame needing a double to lock up the win but left the 3-4-6-7-10 split. Boresch failed to convert the split, giving Weber the golden opportunity to win.

"I loved the shot off my hand," said Boresch, who made it through match play unbeaten before the stepladder loss. "I was ready to run it out. I must have gotten it a little slow or something. I probably needed to be tighter and firmer on that shot because it just picked up and took off on me. Bummer."

Sitting on the bench, Weber said he didn't expect to see Boresch make a mistake like that in the closing frame.

"I expected Lennie to throw two strikes and win," Weber said. "I let out a big sigh of relief, though, and just got up there, was aggressive and threw a strike."
A USBC Masters victory has always been the missing piece to complete Weber's bowling career, but even though this victory came in the Senior Masters, Weber said he takes pride in it.

"You know what, this does have that Masters name behind it and that does mean a lot to me," said Weber, who owns 10 career major titles on the PBA's national tour. "I'll take another Senior Masters win anytime."

Weber, who earned $16,000 for the win, came into the stepladder finals as the No. 3 seed and had to win three matches to take the title. In the semifinal, he knocked off local favorite Kerry Painter of Henderson, Nev., 204-182.

In his first match of the day, Weber took down fellow Hall of Famer Wayne Webb of Grove City, Ohio, 247-229. Webb defeated No. 5 seed David Axon of Bellevue, Neb., 212-193, to open the stepladder finals.

Weber also became the seventh different winner in seven tournaments this season on the PBA50 Tour season.

With his second-place finish, Boresch moved into second in the 2013 PBA50 Player of the Year race with 29 points, 11 points behind leader Amleto Monacelli with 40 points. Walter Ray Williams and Weber are tied for third with 26 points. The top three in points will earn a trip back to South Point for the televised PBA50 finals as part of World Series of Bowling V in November.

The PBA50 Tour heads to Harvest Park Bowl in Brentwood, Calif., June 16-19 for the Senior Northern California Classic.

Focused Jake Peters Wins First Title in Lucas Oil PBA Badger Open as PBA Debuts on CBS Sports Network

Jake Peters of Decatur, Ill., who had never finished higher than 19th place in a previous Professional Bowlers Association Tour event, defeated former Wichita State University teammate Josh Blanchard of Gilbert, Ariz., 245-212, to win his first PBA Tour title in the Lucas Oil PBA Badger Open at AMF Bowlero.

The first of five GEICO PBA Summer Swing presented by Lucas Oil telecasts aired Tuesday on CBS Sports Network.

Peters, a 24-year-old second-year PBA Tour competitor, used a high level of inward focus to bowl a pair of near-perfect games en route to his first win. He started the semifinal match against newly-crowned USBC Intercollegiate Singles Champion Aaron Lorincz of Belleville, Mich., with six strikes – and nine strikes on his first 10 attempts – for a 265-174 victory, and started the title match against Blanchard with another five strikes.

“I told myself all last night and today that I was going to be slow, stay focused, stay in the moment and see what happened,” Peters said. “I told myself if I could keep the ball on line, if it strikes, it strikes. If not, there’s nothing I could do. The hardest thing to do, once you get a few in a row, is to not get amped up and that’s why I looked down a lot.

“It was fortunate the first six struck, and then the first five in the title match. That never happens.”

The victory fulfilled a lifelong dream for the former two-time Junior Team USA member.

“It’s something I wanted so bad, something I wanted forever,” Peters added. “I told my fiancé (Melissa Hurst) this morning that I’m ready for this. I told her this is the one moment I’ve practiced for forever. Since I was five years old I’ve been throwing mock shots in front of a mirror to win a title. I’ve done this a million times; it’s just that no one else has seen me do it.

“I’ve bowled Josh in match play before. I know how good he is, and that if I didn’t put shots on line, I wasn’t going to win. He wasn’t going to give me anything. If I had lost, I would have been perfectly okay with that. I know he’s going to win, but I’m kinda glad it didn’t happen today.”

Peters said the money he won wasn’t the reason for his jubilation.

“I got the check, but that didn’t mean much until I got to hold the trophy,” he grinned. “That’s really what it’s all about.”

Reminded that he also becomes eligible for the PBA Tournament of Champions for the first time, Peters responded, “Wow. I never even thought about that. That’s really awesome.”

Blanchard, the 2011-12 PBA Rookie of the Year, was disappointed he missed his chance for his first title, but was happy for his ex-Wheatshocker teammates.

“It’s nice to see (Jake) win. Obviously you want to win yourself, but it’s nice to see guys who have worked as hard as he has win,” Blanchard said. “He bowled a great game, but I’ll get there eventually.”

The Badger Open, bowled on a 52-foot lane conditioning pattern – the longest ever used in PBA Tour competition – was the first ever televised by CBS Sports Network. In the opening match, Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix defeated Kurt Pilon of Warren, Mich., 224-180. Lorincz eliminated Haugen in the second match, 215-170, before losing to Peters.

The finals of the Lucas Oil Wolf Open, the second event in the GEICO PBA Summer Swing series, will air next Tuesday, June 18, at 7 p.m. ET. The preliminary rounds of the Wolf Open was contested on a 32-foot lane condition pattern – the shortest of the eight PBA “animal patterns” – at AMF West. Advancing to the finals at AMF Bowlero were top qualifier Chris Loschetter of Avon, Ohio; PBA Hall of Famer and 37-time Tour champion Norm Duke of Clermont, Fla.; 20-year-old rookie E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind.; PBA Hall of Famer and 37-time titlist Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., and four-time Tour winner Bill O’Neill of Langhorne, Pa.

今年は梅雨の合間を縫っての開催となったHANDACUPプロボウリングマスターズ。チャーターメンバーから今年プロデビューの新人まで、老練の技を持つ男達が田町ハイレーンに集い、じめじめとした曇り空を吹き飛ばす熱い戦いを繰り広げました。

なかでも熱かったのはパーフェクト最年長記録争い。先にもお伝えしたように、陳勇一郎が樹立した最年長記録を準決勝で山崎行夫が約2ヶ月上回り更新すると、山崎より誕生日が16日早い柴田英徳が決勝ラウンドロビンで達成しさらに更新するという滅多にお目にかかれない記録更新合戦を見せてくれました。

そんなボウリングの奥の深い魅力を見せ、マスターズ最年長優勝記録をも更新するべく決勝ステップラダー・4位決定戦のステージに立った柴田に、準決勝からラウンドロビン中盤までトップに立ちながら終盤で転落、一度は圏外まで順位を落としながらも最後の一枠にかじりついた益田隆司が挑みます。

抜きつ抜かれつの接戦の末もつれ込んだ10フレーム目、柴田がパンチアウトを決めるも益田に2ピン届かず敗退。最年長優勝記録はお預けとなってしまいます。

”決勝ラウンドロビンのポジションマッチで、それまでリードしていた対戦相手の酒井武雄が失投からビッグ4のオープンフレームを出してしまったことで逆転勝ちできた時に、田町の神様が降りてきたと思った”と語った益田は柴田との大接戦を制したことでさらに波に乗り、続く3位決定戦では勝負どころで連続オープンにしてしまった田形研吾に2マーク差で勝利。

そして水野成祐が待ち受ける優勝決定戦、益田は2フレーム目から5連続ストライクに成功。水野もダブルで繋ぎながら益田を追いますが、後半で左レーンに捕まってしまい、ストライクが続きません。

田町の神様を完全に味方につけた益田は終盤さらにターキーを決めて水野を突き放し、昨年に続くマスターズ連覇、前身大会のシニアチャンピオンから数えれば4度目の勝利を果たしました!

Amleto Monacelli Successfully Defends Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open Title for First Win of the Season

Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli successfully defended his Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open presented by Storm title Friday at the Suncoast Bowling Center for his second career PBA50 Tour title and to become the sixth different winner in six tournaments this season on the PBA50 Tour.

As the top qualifier for the finals, the Venezuelan defeated 2011 Senior U.S. Open winner and two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr, 199-193, in the championship match in the first major tournament of the season. He now joins fellow Hall of Famers Wayne Webb and Tom Baker as two-time winners of the tournament and who also won in back-to-back years. Baker in 2005 and ‘06 and Webb in 2008 and ‘09.

Mohr, who moved to Las Vegas from Eagle River, Alaska, right before the start of the tournament, had a chance to win the match by throwing the first strike in the 10th frame but left a solid 10 pin.

“He threw a great shot but the same thing happened to me the frame before,” said Monacelli who won 19 titles in his PBA Tour career. “It’s something that happens a lot in the U.S. Open.”

Monacelli took an early lead in the match but left the unusual 3-4-6-7-10 split in the fourth frame which he failed to convert and consequently evened up the match.

“At that point in the match I really wasn’t worried,” said Monacelli, who also has two second-place finishes the season. “I just analyzed what I did wrong at that point, refocused, and just started all over again. It was something I had to do many times in the tournament.”

With a previous-best finish of sixth on the PBA50 Tour this season, Mohr was very encouraged by his runner-up finish in the tournament.

“Overall, I was very pleased with the way I bowled in what I believe is the toughest Senior U.S. Open that I’ve competed in,” said Mohr. “I liked that shot a lot right off my hand in the 10th frame but in the end the best man won the tournament today.”

Mohr, who qualified fourth for the finals defeated reigning PBA50 Player of the Year and 2012 Senior U.S. Open runner-up Walter Ray Williams Jr. in the opening stepladder match, 279-195, and then went on to beat five-time PBA Tour titlist Eric Forkel of Las Vegas, 218-184, in the semifinal to advance to the championship match.

Throughout the 2013 season, PBA50 Tour players are competing for the opportunity to advance to the nationally-televised PBA50 Tour Finals which will be conducted as part of the World Series of Bowling V in Las Vegas in November. The top three players in points at the conclusion of the season will advance to the PBA50 Tour Finals. With his win in the Senior U.S. Open, Monacelli moved into the lead with 40 points followed by Williams with 26 and Bob Learn Jr. with 20.

The PBA50 Tour now moves across town to the South Point Bowling Center for the United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters--the season’s second major--June 9-14.
