    With an eye on his own eight-game qualifying record, two-time PBA50 Tour Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, averaged 257 to lead the first round of the UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages presented by Radical at Spanish Springs Lanes in The Villages, Fla.

    Mohr (pictured), who owns the eight-game block qualifying mark of 2,160 (270 average) set during the 2010 PBA Senior Columbus Open fired a 2,056 pinfall total Sunday with games of 237, 248, 275, 248, 298, 235, 236 and 279.

    "The thought entered my mind but I left too many 10 pins," said the eight-time PBA50 Tour titlist about the record. "Obviously on a higher scoring condition pin carry is everything."

    Mohr is hoping to end a nearly four-year drought without a PBA50 Tour win. His last win came in the 2012 PBA Senior Decatur Open.

    "With so much talent out on the PBA50 Tour now you really have to be at the top of your game day in and day out," said Mohr, who had a best finish of third in 2015. "To help me get back to that top level I've been working on improving my mental game. It's a work in progress but I'm close to being where I want to be."

    2015PBA50WalterRayWilliams.jpg 2015PBAPeteWeber.jpg Not far behind Mohr was PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. (left) of Oxford, Fla., 23 pins back with 2,033. Williams won last week's season opening Pasco County Florida Open for his 10th career PBA50 Tour title and then followed that up with a win in the PBA50 Sarasota South Open presented by Ebonite QubicaAMF regional tournament on Friday.

    Rounding out the top five after the first round were Brian LeClair, Delmar, N.Y., 1,960; Brian Cooper, Henderson, Nev., 1,958, and reigning PBA50 Player of the Year Pete Weber (right), St. Ann, Mo., 1,956.

    Defending champion Mike Scroggins of Amarillo, Texas finished the day in 26th with 1,842.

    The 160-player field returns Monday for another eight-game qualifying round which will determine the top 32 players who will advance to Tuesday's match play. Once match play is concluded the top five players will advance to the stepladder finals scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

    The UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages is streamed live on PBA's online bowling channel Xtra Frame.
