Lennie Boresch leads top 32 players into Match Play in Florida

Ads


With the help of back-to-back 279 games to open the second round, two-time PBA50 Tour winner Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., retained his lead in the PBA50 UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages presented by Radical after qualifying Monday to lead 32 players advancing to match play.

After bowling a 1,952 eight-game pinfall total in Sunday’s first round at Spanish Springs Lanes In The Villages, Fla., Boresch (pictured above) bowled 1,935 in the second round to finish qualifying with 3,887 (242.94 average). He had games of 279, 279, 247, 227, 223, 194, 228 and 258 in the second round.

“Ever since I won it five years ago I haven’t bowled real well here so hopefully I’m turning things around,” said Boresch, who won the 2012 Sun Bowl In The Villages in his PBA50 Tour debut. “Thanks to a few good breaks I was fortunate to get two big games right out of the gate. Things can change quickly during the round so you always like to take advantage of a good start.”

The USBC Hall of Famer held a 58-pin lead over three-time PBA50 Tour and five-time PBA Tour winner Bob Learn Jr. (left) of Erie, Pa., who finished qualifying in second with a 3,828 pinfall. Qualifying third was Peter Knopp (right) of Germany with 3,802, followed by Sam Maccarone of Blackwood, N.J., 3,796, and Mark Sullivan, of Indianapolis, 3,793, to round out the top five.

Boresch is trying for his first title since winning the 2013 PBA50 Miller High Life Classic. He had two runner-up finishes in 2016 and kicked off the 2017 season with a seventh-place finish in last week’s Pasco County Florida Open.

Bowling in his first PBA50 tournament of the season, defending champion and reigning PBA50 Player of the Year Pete Weber (left) of St. Ann, Mo., moved from 23rd after the first round to 15th with a 3,694 pinfall.

Other Hall of Famers advancing to match play were Parker Bohn III, Jackson, N.J., in 10th with 3,724; Amleto Monacelli, Venezuela, 11th with 3,718; Bryan Goebel, Shawnee, Kan., 13th, with 3,706, and Walter Ray Williams Jr., Oxford, Calif., 16th, with 3,670.

Michael Haugen Jr. (right) of Phoenix took the 32nd and last spot to advance with 3,576 or an average of 223.50.

After Tuesday’s first match play round at 9 a.m. ET, the field will be cut to the top 16 for the second match play round at 2 p.m. which will determine the top five players for the stepladder finals scheduled for 7 p.m.

The Sun Bowl In The Villages will be available on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame but on a one-day delayed basis. For schedule and subscription information, click here.
