Eighteen-time PBA Tour winner Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., averaged 238 for seven games Saturday to lead 50 players who advanced to Sunday’s cashers’ qualifying round in the PBA Xtra Frame Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic at Mid-County Bowling and Entertainment Center.

Jones (above) bowled a 1,669 seven-game pinfall total to lead Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., who finished the round in second just one pin behind with 1,668. Starting the round with a 299, Jones recovered after a 191 in the second game with games of 204, 262, 237, 256 and 220.

Kent (left) is currently in second in the PBA Xtra Frame Storm Cup points race trailing reigning PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., by two points with one event to go after the Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic. Tackett finished eighth in the first round with 1,610.

Kent owns two PBA Tour titles this season winning the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open and the Xtra Frame Lubbock Sports Open. Jones, who is trying for his first win of the season, finished second in the FireLake PBA Tournament of Champions in February.

Tackett (right), who has three Tour wins this season including the Tournament of Champions, is trying for his first Storm Cup Tour event win this year but has three top-five finishes in the last four events including a second to Kent in the Lubbock Sports Open.

The Xtra Frame Storm Cup series concludes with the Xtra Frame Kenn-Feld Group Classic from Pla-Mor Lanes in Coldwater, Ohio, Aug. 26-27. At the conclusion of the tournament $50,000 in Storm Cup bonus money will be awarded.

Rounding out the Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic top five are Tim Foy Jr., Seaford, Del., 1,655; last week’s Chesapeake Open winner Dick Allen, Columbia, S.C., 1,651, and four-time PBA Tour winner Ronnie Russell (left), Marion, Ind., 1,633.

Allen also is in contention in the Storm Cup Points race just five points behind Tackett. Five-time Tour winner Dom Barrett of England, who is third on the points list four points behind Tackett, finished the first round in 11th with 1,602.

After Sunday’s cashers’ round the field will be cut to the top 16 players for match play beginning at 1 p.m. EDT which will determine the top four players for the stepladder finals at 6:30 p.m.
