    2010 PBA Senior Tour #2

    Mohr averages 270 in second round and 265 overall

    2010PBAS02RonMohr.jpg2009USBCOCWayneWebb.jpgReigning Professional Bowlers Association Senior Player of the Year Ron Mohr (pictured left) of Eagle River, Alaska, set three PBA Senior Tour records Monday on his way to the second-round lead in the PBA Senior Columbus Open at HP Lanes.

    Mohr had a record 16-game overall pinfall of 4,243 after Monday's second qualifying round for a 265.1 average, breaking his own mark of 4,036 set in 2008. His second eight-game qualifying round pinfall of 2,160 (270 average) broke the previous record of 2,119 set by Hall of Famer Wayne Webb (right) of Columbus in Sunday's first round. Webb dropped to fourth after Monday's second round.

    In Monday's second round Mohr had games of 279, 260, 300, 259, 300, 256, 269 and 237. His two 300 games brought his total for the tournament to three which is also a Senior Tour record.

    "You can play inside or outside on the lane and that is something I've never experienced before," said the 54-year-old Mohr. "Basically, you can score from anywhere on the lane. There's not one area of the lane that favors a specific shot."

    Mohr won three titles in the 2009 season including the first two events which helped him earn Senior Player of the Year honors. He got off to a somewhat slow start in last week's season-opening Senior Dayton Classic after being eliminated in the Round of 24.

    2010PBASKennyParks.jpg"I guess I hadn't shaken off my winter game yet," Mohr said about last week's tournament. "There's quite a difference between bowling back home and what we compete on here on the Senior Tour. But, I feel like I'm back in pretty good form now."

    Mohr holds a 170-pin lead over PBA Hall of Famer and two-time Senior Tour titlist Mark Williams of Beaumont, Texas, in second, and a 206-pin lead over 2008 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters winner Kenny Parks (left) of Hammond, Ind., in third.

    The 134-player field has been cut to the top 32 players who will advance to best-of-five match play beginning Tuesday at 9 a.m. Eastern. Match play continues all day Tuesday with the Round of 8 and championship rounds scheduled for 6 p.m.

    PBA.com's Xtra Frame video service will provide final-day coverage of the Senior Columbus Open on Tuesday.
