67-year-old Ted Staikoff leads Round One in PBA50 Fountain Valley Open Suncoast

    Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open winner Pete Weber finishes first round in second

    2013PBA50TedStaikoff.jpg2014PBA50PeteWeber.jpgAfter competing on the PBA50 Tour for 17 years with a best finish of third, 67-year-old Ted Staikoff (pictured left) of Black Hawk, S.D., is hoping his lead after the first round of qualifying in the PBA50 Fountain Valley Open presented by Track Monday might be a sign of even better things to come.

    Staikoff bowled an 1,854 eight-game pinfall (231.7 average) with games of 258, 279, 207, 196, 245, 226, 213 and 230 at Fountain Bowl to hold a 12-pin lead over last week's Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open winner Pete Weber (right) of St. Ann, Mo., who bowled 1,842.

    "I started out playing pretty far outside and then moved in to about the 10th board but I was able to use the same ball the whole round," said Staikoff, who finished 27th in the Senior U.S. Open. "Tomorrow, I'll start the same way with the same ball and hope for similar results."

    Staikoff's best PBA50 Tour finish of third came in the 2003 Senior Manassas (Va.) Open. He also has two fourth-place finishes to his credit which came in the 2004 Epicenter and Chillicothe (Ohio) Opens.

    Staikoff attributed a change in his delivery suggested by ball rep Tom Carter and PBA Hall of Famer Wayne Webb for improvement in his game recently.

    2013PBA50BryanGoebel.jpg2013PBA50AmletoMonacelli2.jpg"Both Tom and Wayne said I needed to come through the ball more at the line because I was spinning it off my hand too much and just wasn't getting good carry," Staikoff said. "I just have to remember to keep executing that way and not fall back into a bad habit."

    Rounding out the top five after the first round were 10-time PBA Tour winner Bryan Goebel (left) of Shawnee, Kan., 1,831; Hall of Famer Amleto Monacelli (right), Venezuela, 1,822, and amateur Robert Spaulding, McKinney, Texas, 1,806.

    The 103-player field will return for another eight-game qualifying round Tuesday which will determine 34 players who will advance to match play on Wednesday. The top five after match play will advance to the stepladder finals scheduled for 7 p.m. PT.
