    2011 Senior U.S. Open winner leads 53 players into Thursday's cashers round

    2011PBASRonMohr.jpg2013PBA5005RandyPedersen.jpgTwo-time PBA50 Tour Player of the Year and 2011 Senior U.S. Open winner Ron Mohr (pictured left) of Eagle River, Alaska, averaged 218.4 to lead after second round qualifying Wednesday in the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open presented by Storm at the Suncoast Bowling Center In Las Vegas.

    Mohr finished the day with a 3,495 16-game pinfall total leading PBA Hall of Famer Randy Pedersen (right) of Clermont, Fla., in second, by eight pins. In Wednesday's eight-game round, Mohr had games of 202, 211, 209, 232, 224, 197, 195 and 277.

    "Bowling on the fresh condition I had to work to find an angle to the pocket because I couldn't play anywhere outside," said Mohr of his second round. "My spare shooting has been acceptable but I've missed three single pin spares and you can't throw pins away like that in the U.S. Open."

    Pedersen, who won in his PBA50 Tour debut in Dayton, Ohio three weeks ago, had games of 195, 186, 235, 192, 224, 207, 258 and 266 in his second round and finished with a 3,487 pinfall. He also stressed the importance of making spares in the Senior U.S. Open.

    "I've been fortunate that shots that haven't been perfect were still getting to the pocket," said the PBA Tour's telecast color analyst and 13-time Tour champion. "I've only missed one spare so it's been the right combination of making spares, make the right adjustments and keep the ball in play."

    2013PBA50AmletoMonacelli.jpg2011PBASHarrySullins.jpgMohr led a field of 53 players who advanced to Thursday morning's third round which will determine the top 24 players for round-robin match play beginning Thursday afternoon. Match play continues on Friday to determine the four players who will advance to the stepladder finals at 4 p.m. PT on Friday.

    Finishing third after the second round with a 3,461 pinfall was defending Senior U.S. Open champion Amleto Monacelli (left) of Venezuela. The Hall of Famer is hoping to join Wayne Webb and Tom Baker as two-time Senior U.S. Open champions.

    Finishing the day in fourth with 3,448 was three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins (right) of Chesterfield Township, Mich., who has best Senior U.S. Open finishes of third in 2011, fifth in 2010 and fourth in 2009.

    Sammy Ventura of Syracuse, N.Y., won a roll-off for 53rd place by defeating Phil Prieto of El Paso, Texas, 223-200 advancing to the third round.
