Monacelli, Weber lead PBA50 Petraglia BVL Open Qualifying


2015PBAAmletoMonacelli.jpg2014PBA50PeteWeber.jpgPBA Hall of Famers Amleto Monacelli and Pete Weber took the top two spots after qualifying Monday in the PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open presented by Brunswick at Farmingdale Lanes in Farmingdale, N.Y., as competition moves into match play.

Monacelli (pictured left), who was the leader after the first round, earned top-qualifier honors with a 3,683 16-game pinfall total (230.1 average). The 54-year-old Venezuelan bowled games of 201, 238, 193, 227, 243, 255, 184 and 248 in Monday’s second round.

“Before I came here I didn’t know what to expect because I didn’t do well last year,” said Monacelli, who finished 41st in last year’s BVL Open. “It was a good test for my mental game, which I am always working on, because I wanted to prove to myself I could overcome last year’s result.”

Through the first three tournaments of the season Monacelli, who owns five PBA50 Tour titles, has a best finish of 15th which came in last week’s Mooresville Ford Open.

Monacelli won the DHC Japan Invitational (pictured above) in January for his 20th PBA Tour win and his most recent PBA50 Tour wins came in the PBA50 Northern California Classic and United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters last season.

The 53-year-old Weber (pictured right and above) finished qualifying in second with a 3,605 pinfall (225 average) bowling games of 205, 238, 247, 214, 206, 222, 268 and 242 in the second round.

Weber is coming off back-to-back wins on the PBA50 Tour winning the Sun Bowl in The Villages
Mooresville Ford Open. If he can win the BVL Open, he would tie the record of three consecutive PBA50 Tour wins held by Hall of Famer Tom Baker of King, N.C., who accomplished the feat in 2006.

“The key here is making the adjustments you need to get the pin carry,” said Weber, who has six PBA50 Tour titles. “I analyze how the ball reacts mid-lane and make adjustments from there whether it be the ball I’m using or the way I’m throwing it. I’m a little old school that way because a lot of guys don’t use that technique.”

The top 24 players advanced directly into Tuesday’s match play with an additional eight players advancing through a cashers round Tuesday morning.

Defending champion 2015 PBA50 Rookie of the Year Mike Scroggins (right) of Amarillo, Texas, finished 16th with 3,262, while tournament namesake Hall of Famer Johnny Petraglia finished tied for 26th with 3,171.

Tuesday’s match play rounds will be live on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame beginning at 8:30 a.m. ET. Tuesday’s stepladder finals are scheduled for 7 p.m.
