Pete Weber wins back-to-back PBA50 Tour titles

2015PBAPeteWeber.jpg2014PBA50JackJurek.jpgProfessional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Pete Weber won the PBA50 Tour’s Mooresville Ford Open presented by Columbia 300 and Miller High Life Wednesday night at George Pappas’ Victory Lanes, notching back-to-back titles and his sixth career PBA50 title to tie his late father, Dick Weber, on the all-time “senior tour” titles list.

Pictured above is Pete Weber with Victory Lanes manager Paul Kreins.

In winning the title, the reigning PBA50 Player of the Year spoiled Jack Jurek‘s (right) bid to defend his 2015 Mooresville title after the Lackawanna, N.Y., veteran won all six matches in the final match play round to run away with the top berth for the stepladder finals.

Unconverted splits in the first two frames put Jurek in a hole, which he almost escaped, but back-to-back strikes by Weber in the ninth and 10th frames locked up his 212-198 victory.

“I had my first 500-over (a 200 average) round here two years ago and finished third,” Weber said. “Last year I was second, and now I’m first. This is now my favorite place to bowl.”

Weber, who ended the 2015 season battling chronic back and knee problems, has bowled virtually pain free in 2016, including his romp to victory in the PBA50 UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages a week earlier.

“I’m feeling really good,” Weber said. “I’ve had no pain at all this spring, and now I’m looking forward to bowling in New York because I led there last year, too.”

Baker started the stepladder finals with a 227-203 win over Robert Brown of Cody, Wyo., followed by a 279-257 slugfest with Sam Maccarone (right) of Blackwood, N.J., in match two.

A global audience watched the Mooresville finals on PBA’s Xtra Frame online video-streaming service. The PBA50 Tour and Xtra Frame’s next event will be the PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open presented by Brunswick at Farmingdale Lanes in Farmingdale, N.Y., starting Sunday.
