    2015PBAPeteWeber.jpg In another dominating qualifying performance, Pete Weber of St. Ann., Mo., continued to pace the field in the PBA50 Mooresville Ford Open presented by Columbia 300 and Miller High Life Tuesday, averaging 250.6 to take top qualifier honors at George Pappas' Victory Lanes.

    The PBA Hall of Famer and 2015 PBA50 Player of the Year compiled a 4,010 16-game pinfall total bowling 2,012 in Tuesday's eight-game round after a 1,998 in Monday's first round. Weber's games in the second round were 246, 212, 268, 227, 279, 290, 279 and 211.

    "I didn't change a thing from yesterday," said the 53-year-old Weber. "I used the same two balls and played the lanes basically the same as yesterday. I actually bowled a little better in the second round and that's kind of unusual for me. Most tournaments I drop down a little in the second round of qualifying but I was able to keep the momentum going."

    After the second round, 24 players advanced directly into Wednesday's match play rounds. An additional eight players will earn match play spots after a cashers round Wednesday morning. The match play rounds will determine the top five players for the stepladder finals scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

    "I'll be prepared for match play," the 37-time PBA Tour titlist said. "I have a good read on the lanes and I'm confident in my equipment. I have a third and a second-place finish here, all I'm missing is the No. 1."

    Weber is hoping to win his second consecutive title this season, winning last week's UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages by defeating two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr 204-162 in the championship match to also win his fifth career PBA50 Tour title. Weber finished fourth in the season-opening Pasco County Florida Open.

    2014PBA50StoneyBaker.jpg 2015PBA50BobSpaulding.jpg Weber held a 202-pin lead over Stoney Baker (left) of Canton, Ga., who finished qualifying in second with 3,808. Rounding out the top eight were Ralph Brunt Jr., Jensen Beach, Fla., 3,789; Bob Learn Jr., Erie, Pa., 3,782; Bob Spaulding (right), Colorado Springs, Colo., 3,705; Kenny Parks, Hammond, Ind., 3,690 and Hall of Famers Tom Baker, King, N.C., 3,688, and Norm Duke, Clermont, Fla., 3,671. Defending champion Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y. qualified 12th with 3,603.

    The Mooresville Ford Open is streamed live on PBA's online bowling channel Xtra Frame.
