    2013PBA50KerryPainter.jpgPBA50 Tour veteran Kerry Painter (pictured left) of Henderson, Nev., averaged 237.6 to top first round qualifying Friday in the PBA60 Dick Weber Super Senior Open presented by Pro Bowl West and Hammer.

    Painter led the field of 117 players ages 60 and over with a 1,426 six-game pinfall total at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne, Ind., bowling games of 279, 267, 216, 214, 234 and 216.

    "I felt like I might have left a 300 game out there," said the 62-year-old Painter. "I got off to a great start but I just felt like I didn't take advantage of what was out there like I should have.

    "Overall I'm bowling well and I avoided the bad game so I'm happy about that. I just have to keep the ball around the pocket like I've been doing and with a few good breaks here and there I should have a good tournament."

    Rounding out the top five were Ted Staikoff (left) of Black Hawk, S.D., 1,398, followed by three PBA Hall of Famers, Dale Eagle (right), Laguna Niguel, Calif., 1,392; Tom Baker, King, N.C., 1,365, and Johnny Petraglia, Jackson, N.J., 1,353.

    The field will return for another six-game qualifying round Saturday morning which will determine the top 32 players who will advance to the first match play round Saturday at 5 p.m. ET. Another match play round will be conducted Sunday morning beginning at 8 a.m. to determine the five players for the stepladder finals scheduled for noon.
