Brian LeClair top qualifier in PBA50 Pasco County Florida Open

Brian LeClair of Delmar, N.Y., put together a 1,753 seven-game pinfall total (250.4 average) in the second round to top qualifying Wednesday in the PBA50 Pasco County Florida Open at Lane Glo Bowl in New Port Richey, Fla., leading a field of 32 players into match play.

After bowling 1,671 to finish third after the first round, LeClair (pictured right and above) was the model of consistency in the second round with games of 246, 268, 237, 243, 245, 258 and 256 surging into the lead with a 3,424 14-game pinfall total (244 average).

“That round probably looked more consistent than it was,” said LeClair, who won the 2015 PBA50 Fountain Valley Open for his lone PBA50 Tour title. “There weren’t too many highs or too many lows, but I had my share of splits and opens. Fortunately, I was able to string strikes to make up for it.”

In 2016, LeClair had a best finish of second which came in the PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open.

“I’m bowling well in spurts but haven’t been able to put together a tournament where I’ve bowled well all the way through,” the 52-year-old LeClair added. “I’m working on building more consistency into my game.”

LeClair holds a 137-pin lead over first round leader and two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr (left) of Las Vegas with 3,287. Mohr finished second in the PBA60 Killer ‘B’ Open at Lane Glo Bowl that concluded on Monday.

Finishing qualifying in third was Steve Pavlinko of Sewell, N.J., with 3,279, followed by two-time PBA50 Tour winner Lennie Boresch Jr. (right) of Kenosha, Wis., 3,228, and 2016 PBA50 Rookie of the Year Eddie Graham of Centerville, Ohio in fifth with 3,201.

PBA50 Tour rookie and five-time PBA Tour winner Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix finished sixth with 3,173, with Germany’s Peter Knopp (left) in seventh place on 3,168. Defending champion, PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Fla., finished the round in 12th with 3,142.

Five-time PBA Tour winner, Ryan Shafer of Horseheads, N.Y., who is also making his PBA50 Tour debut, also advanced to match play finishing 20th with 3,101.

After Thursday’s match play rounds, the top five players will advance to the stepladder finals set for 4 p.m. ET.
