    2011 PBA Senior Tour #11

    Capri Lanes in Kettering, Ohio (Aug., 27-30, 2011)

    2011PBASKennyParks.jpg2010PBASJohnnyPetraglia2.jpgKenny Parks (pictured left) of Hammond, Ind., averaged 247.8 to lead the first round of the Professional Bowlers Association Senior Dayton Classic Sunday at Capri Lanes.

    Parks had a 1,983 eight-game pinfall total with games of 226, 257, 226, 246, 268, 247, 258 and 255. He leads PBA Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia (right) of Jackson, N.J., in second with 1,953.

    "I got off to a pretty good start and then I took a gamble after the second game by changing to a ball that hooked more so I could get a better ball reaction playing inside," said Parks, the 2008 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters winner. "It turned out that I made the right choice and the right adjustments and matched up well with the condition for the entire round."

    Parks' best finish this season was fourth in the recent Senior Lake County Open in his hometown of Hammond, and is hoping to win his second career Senior Tour title in the final event of the 2011 Senior Tour season.

    2011PBASTomBaker.jpg2011PBASRonMohr.jpg"I've been bowling well all year but things haven't really gone my way in match play," said Parks. "I really hoped to win in Hammond but I've got one more shot here and hopefully I'll make the best of it."

    Rounding out the top five after the first round are Hall of Famer and four-time Senior Player of the Year Tom Baker (left), King, N.C., 1,940; Ron Profitt, Brookville, Ohio, 1,934, and Ron Mohr (right), Eagle River, Alaska, 1,931.

    Mohr clinched his second PBA Senior Player of the Year crown Thursday by winning a record-tying fourth title of the season in the PBA Senior Jackson (Mich.) Open.

    The field of 125 players will bowl another eight-game qualifying round on Monday after which the field will be cut to the top 32 for match play on Tuesday. Round of 8 and championship rounds will get underway at 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

    PBA.com's Xtra Frame video service will provide live coverage Monday beginning at 4 p.m. and will continue all day Tuesday.
