    2015PBAWSOBRonMohr.jpg Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., the 2015 PBA50 Player of the Year, began work defending that crown by winning the PBA50 UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages presented by Radical Tuesday at Spanish Springs Lanes in The Villages, Fla.

    Weber (center, with Darrell and Larry Ducat, right) won his fifth career PBA50 Tour title by defeating two-time PBA50 Player of the Year and tournament top qualifier Ron Mohr (right) of Las Vegas, 204-162, in the title match.

    "I've always bowled well here," said Weber. "I've made the finals here three out of the last four years and was hoping it would just be a matter of time to get a win."

    Weber, a winner of 37 titles, including a record-tying 10 majors on the PBA Tour, was helped by three open frames by Mohr, who missed two 10 pins and a four pin. Mohr, an eight-time PBA50 Tour titlist, was trying to end a nearly four-year drought without a win, with his last coming in the 2012 PBA Senior Decatur Open.

    "I feel bad for Ron but he's the type of guy that will bounce back no doubt about that," Weber said. "We've all been there. Sometimes when you miss an easy spare, that frustration can make things worse. We were both having trouble that game — I could barely get a double."

    "I'm feeling good physically and my game is in a good shape so I'm looking forward to another good season," Weber added. In the semifinal, Weber beat PBA50 Tour newcomer Joel Carlson of Omaha, Neb., 268-223, to advance to the championship match.

    In the opening stepladder match, Carlson beat four-time PBA50 Player of the Year and 12-time PBA50 Tour winner Tom Baker (left) of King, N.C., 224-213, and then went on to beat 2015 PBA50 Rookie of the Year Mike Scroggins (right) of Amarillo, Texas, 268-217, to advance to the semifinal.

    The PBA50 Tour's third stop of the season will be George Pappas Victory Lanes in Mooresville, N.C. for the Mooresville Ford Open presented by Columbia 300 and Miller High Life May 1-4.
