Nelson, Bohn top qualifying PBA50 World Championship

2016PBA5010RonNelson.jpgBowling in his first PBA50 Tour tournament, non-member Ron Nelson Jr. of Bridgeview, Ill., averaged 256.6 in Wednesday’s final qualifying round to lead 24 players who advanced to match play in the PBA50 Treasure Island Resort & Casino World Championship presented by Storm at Island Xtreme Bowl in Welch, Minn.

After finishing 18th in Monday’s first round on the Viper lane condition pattern, Nelson (pictured left) moved steadily up the standings to eighth after the second round Tuesday on the Chameleon pattern before bowling a 1,283 five-game pinfall with games of 222, 289, 268, 259 and 245 Wednesday on the Scorpion pattern.

For the three qualifying rounds, Nelson had a 3,585 15-game qualifying pinfall good for a 239 overall average.

“To use a golf analogy you might say I had a good day pitching and putting,” said Nelson, who owns one PBA regional tournament title and finished ninth in the 2009 U.S. Open. “I came in with a good game plan with my equipment and how I wanted to play the lanes. I got comfortable right away and started striking.”

The 24-player match play field will bowl two six-game rounds Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. CT which will determine the top five for the stepladder finals at 7 p.m.

2015PBAParkerBohn.jpgFinishing second after qualifying was PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III (pictured right and above) of Jackson, N.J., who had a 3,568 15-game pinfall. The 35-time PBA Tour winner moved into second with a 1,287 pinfall in the third round bowling games of 300, 216, 255, 268 and 248.

Even though Bohn won the Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open conducted last season as a standard event for his third PBA50 Tour title, he approaches the World Championship differently.

“You always have a good feeling when you come to a center where you’ve had success,” said Bohn.

2016PBA5009PeteWeber2.jpg“In the multi-event tournaments that we bowl on completely different lane conditions you are literally walking out of the same center at the end of the day but I approach it as each day you’re walking into a different center in a new city. You have to clear your mind and prepare like it’s a brand new tournament.”

Trying for his third consecutive major title of the season, Hall of Famer and defending PBA50 Player of the Year Pete Weber (left) of St. Ann, Mo., finished qualifying in third with a 3,566 pinfall. He bowled a third round leading 1,294 pinfall with games of 279, 215, 242, 258 and 300 to finish two pins behind Bohn.

2015PBANormDuke.jpgThe winner of the PBA Senior U.S. Open and USBC Senior Masters is in the midst of a milestone season in which he has already won a record five PBA50 Tour tournaments including four consecutively.

Hall of Famer Norm Duke (right) of Clermont, Fla., who was the qualifying leader after the first two rounds, dropped to sixth finishing with a 3,500 pinfall total.

As the top qualifier in Wednesday’s third round Weber will also lead 24 finalists for the Treasure Island Resort & Casino Scorpion Championship match play round Thursday at 5:30 p.m. After Thursday’s match play the top five will advance to the Scorpion stepladder finals Friday at 5:30 p.m. which will award a PBA50 regional title to the winner.
