Brian Voss surges into the lead at PBA60 Dick Weber Championship


Bowling in his first tournament for players 60 and over, PBA Hall of Famer Brian Voss posted a 5-0-1 record and averaged 248 in the first match play round to take the lead in the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship presented by 900 Global Wednesday at Pro Bowl West in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Voss (featured photo), a 25-time PBA Tour and two-time PBA50 Tour winner who was third after qualifying, finished with a 4,889 20-game pinfall total (including bonus pins) after three rounds to go around Sammy Ventura of Syracuse, N.Y., in second with 4,883 and qualifying leader three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins of Chesterfield Twp., Mich., who dropped to third with 4,866.

Voss bowled games of 237, 224, 279, 248, 278 and 225 in Wednesday’s first match play round.

“At 60 I’m finding the key to success out here is not being hurt and do your best to stay in shape,” said Voss (right), who turned 60 on Aug. 4 to become eligible for the Dick Weber Championship.

“It just feels strange for me to be bowling competitively at 60. I guess the consolation is I’m the youngest, or at least pretty close to the youngest, 60-year-old out here.”

Voss, who won the PBA50 Mooresville Open in May for his second PBA50 Tour title, will lead the 32-player field into Thursday morning’s second match play round which will determine the top five for the stepladder finals at 1 p.m.

Sullins (left) led qualifying with a 3,331 14-game pinfall but could only manage a 3-3 record in match play while Ventura (right), who finished qualifying with 3,309, was able to retain his second spot thanks to a 4-2 record.

Rounding out the top five were Bruce Hall of Westborough, Mass., with 4,826 and Leroy Johnson of Chicago with 4,705. Both players had 5-1 records in match play.

PBA Hall of Famer and Fort Wayne native Ron Mohr (left) made a big surge from 25th after qualifying to finish sixth after the first match play round finishing with a 5-1 record and 4,702 pinfall. Defending champion Darryl Bower of Middletown, Pa., finished the day in 15th with a 3-3 record and 4,520 pinfall.

The PBA60 Dick Weber Championship is the final event of the PBA50 Tour season and is the second event specifically for players 60 and over. Mike Dias (right), who currently sits in eighth place, won the Super Senior Classic for players 60 and over in June.

The final day of the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship will be streamed live on PBA’s online bowling channel PBA Xtra Frame on FloBowling now with multiple streams beginning at 9 a.m. ET. For subscription and schedule information click here.
