Lennie Boresch takes first round lead In The Villages

Ads


Thanks to a tip from last week’s Pasco County Florida Open winner Brian LeClair, two-time PBA50 Tour winner Lennie Boresch Jr. put it to good use by taking the first round lead Sunday in the PBA50 UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl In The Villages, presented by Radical at Spanish Springs Lanes.

Boresch (pictured above), of Kenosha, Wis., topped the field of 160 players 50 and over with a 1,952 eight-game pinfall total (244 average) bowling games of 226, 225, 228, 249, 300, 257, 223 and 244.

“After the third game I was talking with Brian (right) and he suggested I try another ball,” said Boresch, who had two runner-up finishes in 2016. “With both of us being pro shop operators we talk a lot about what equipment to use for various conditions.

“I was throwing the ball well the first three games but just couldn’t get the pin carry I wanted,” Boresch added. “I thought what the heck I’ll take Brian up on his suggestion and went to a new ball that hit a little more on the back end. Sure enough that was the right move.”

Boresch, who finished seventh in the Pasco County Open, held a 10-pin lead over three-time PBA50 and five-time PBA Tour winner Bob Learn Jr. (left) of Erie. Pa., with 1,942. Rounding out the top five after the first round were Sam Maccarone, Blackwood, N.J., 1,935; PBA Hall of Famer Bryan Goebel, Shawnee, Kan., 1,921, and Sammy Ventura, Syracuse, N.Y., who also rolled a 300 in the round, 1,917.

Bowling in his first PBA50 tournament of the season, defending champion and reigning PBA50 Player of the Year Pete Weber (right)of St. Ann, Mo., finished the round in 23rd with a 1,822 pinfall.

LeClair, who won the PBA50 Pasco County Florida Open for his second career PBA50 Tour title, finished 12th with 1,873.

After Monday’s second qualifying round, the top 32 players will advance to Tuesday’s match play round. After match play, the top five will be determined for the stepladder finals scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

The Sun Bowl In The Villages will be available on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame but on a one-day delayed basis beginning Monday at 9 a.m. ET with Sunday’s first round action. For schedule and subscription information, click here.
