Pete Weber sets pace in PBA50 Mooresville Ford Open

2015PBAPeteWeber.jpgTrying for his second consecutive win of the young 2016 PBA50 Tour season, defending PBA50 Player of the Year Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., averaged 249.7 Monday to take the first round lead in the PBA50 Mooresville Ford Open presented by Columbia 300 and Miller High Life at George Pappas’ Victory Lanes.

Starting the round with games of 258 and 300, the PBA Hall of Famer (left and above) followed up with games of 256, 279, 247, 196, 247 and 215 for a 1,998 pinfall total.

“You just focus on hitting the pocket,” Weber said. “You’re going to leave a 7-pin or 10-pin here or there, but if you’re hitting the pocket on a regular basis you’re going to get your share of strikes.

“Even when I had the 196 game, I was still throwing the ball like I wanted to. I just didn’t make the adjustment fast enough. It actually gave me a good baseline to get back on track in the seventh game.”

Weber won last week’s Sun Bowl In The Villages by beating Ron Mohr, 204-162, in the championship match for his fifth career PBA50 Tour title. In the season-opening Pasco County Florida Open, the 37-time PBA Tour titlist finished fourth.

2015PBANormDuke.jpg2015PBA50BobLearn.jpgWeber holds a 70-pin lead over Hall of Famer Norm Duke (left) of Clermont, Fla., who also had a 300 game, in second with 1,928, followed by Ralph Brunt Jr., Jensen Beach, Fla., 1,927; Bob Learn Jr. (right), Erie, Pa., 1,889, and Don Herrington of Ballston Lake, N.Y. in fifth with 1,885.

Defending champion Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y., finished the day in sixth with 1,877.

The 151-player field returns Tuesday for another eight-game qualifying round which will determine the top 32 players who will advance to Wednesday’s match play rounds. Once match play is concluded the top five players will advance to the stepladder finals scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

The Mooresville Ford Open is streamed live on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame.
