Ron Mohr, Pete Weber top PBA50 Northern California Classic qualifying


    2016 PBA50 Tour #7

    Mohr earns third top-qualifier crown of the season while Weber heads into match play in good position for fifth consecutive PBA50 Tour title



    2015PBAWSOBRonMohr.jpg In seven PBA50 Tour tournaments this season, Ron Mohr of Las Vegas has been the qualifying leader in three of them. The goal now is to turn his success in qualifying into a tournament win.

    The two-time PBA50 Player of the Year (pictured left and above) averaged 242.8 after the second round of the PBA50 Northern California Classic presented by MOTIV Tuesday at Harvest Park Bowl for his third top-qualifier crown.

    He led qualifying with a 3,885 pinfall total, 13 pins ahead of PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., who is trying for his fifth consecutive PBA50 Tour title.

    Mohr led Monday's first round with a 1,975 eight-game pinfall and followed it up with a 1,910 pinfall in Tuesday's second round on games of 237, 268, 255, 235, 209, 277, 203 and 226.

    "If these tournaments were 16 games I'm in business," said Mohr, who owns eight career PBA50 Tour titles. "I feel like I'm doing everything I need to do to win but I just need to make it happen for the whole of the tournament."

    Mohr, who was top qualifier for the Sun Bowl in The Villages and last week's Fountain Valley Open, is trying for his first PBA50 Tour title since winning the Senior Decatur (Ill.) Open in August of 2012. Weber beat Mohr, 204-162, in the championship match of the Sun Bowl In The Villages in April which started Weber's record run of four consecutive titles.

    After his win in the Sun Bowl In The Villages Weber won the Mooresville Ford Open, Johnny Petraglia BVL Open and then successfully defending his PBA Senior U.S. Open title June 3 before skipping last week's PBA50 Fountain Valley Open.

    2016PBA50BrianKretzer.jpg Rounding out the top five after qualifying were Noel Vazquez of Sacramento, Calif., 3,729; Brian Cooper of Henderson, Nev., 3,714, and Robert Brown of Cody, Wyo., 3,711.

    Joe Goldstein Sr. of San Bruno, Calif., and Brian Kretzer (right) of Dayton, Ohio, were the last players who directly qualified for match play as they tied for 23rd place with 3,559.

    After a cashers round Wednesday morning, 24 players will compete in match play which will determine the top five players who will advance to the stepladder finals at 6:30 p.m. PT. All of the action will be streamed live on PBA's online bowling channel Xtra Frame.
