Norm Duke retains lead in Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open


Norm Duke of Clermont, Fla., averaged 231 for six games Tuesday to retain his lead after the second round of the Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open presented by 900 Global at the Suncoast Bowling Center in Las Vegas.

The PBA Hall of Famer and winner of the 2014 Senior U.S. Open bowled a 1,388 six-game pinfall total in the second round after bowling 1,488 in Monday’s first round for a 2,876 overall pinfall total (239.6 average). Duke had games of 237, 212, 289, 220, 224 and 206 in the second round.

“It was a solid round with all 200s,” said Duke, who ranks third on the all-time PBA Tour titles list with 38 wins and also owns two PBA50 Tour titles. “You have to put everything in perspective because at this point in the tournament you don’t win it today.

“The scores were a little lower today but you have to remember everybody’s trying to make their tweaks and get a little better so there’s some experimenting going on out there,” the 52-year-old Duke added. “I take what I get and move on.”

Duke holds a 71-pin lead over non-member Mike Klosin of Windham, N.H., in second, who is bowling in his first Senior U.S. Open. Adding to Duke’s confidence was his ability to play from all areas of the lane regardless of what the lane conditions happened to be.

2014PBA50HarrySullins.jpg2015PBA50BobLearn.jpg“There were no surprises for me out there,” Duke said. “I could get something from playing all the arrows. I started outside on the fresh condition yesterday and steadily moved in. Today, I was playing a lot of fourth arrow so that just reinforces the fact that I can play the lanes a variety of ways.

“I just want to clarify that I’m feeling good physically, and just need to make a few more tweaks to get my game to 100 percent.”

Rounding out the top five were three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins (left), Chesterfield Twp., Mich., 2,785; Eddie Graham, Centerville, Ohio, 2,719, and three-time PBA50 Tour titlist Bob Learn Jr. (right), Erie, Pa., 2,691.

2015PBAAmletoMonacelli.jpg2015PBAPeteWeber.jpgTwo-time Senior U.S. Open winner Amleto Monacelli (left) of Venezuela is in sixth with 2,689. Monacelli and fellow Hall of Famer Tom Baker of King, N.C., who was 21st after the second round with 2,608, are trying to become the first to win Senior U.S. Open three times.

Defending Senior U.S. Open champion Hall of Famer Pete Weber (right) of St. Ann, Mo., who is trying for a record fourth consecutive PBA50 Tour title, was in eighth place with 2,665.

Duke, who won the 2014 Senior U.S. Open, and Weber are the only players to win U.S. Open titles on both the PBA Tour and PBA50 Tours.

2016PBA50TourLogo.jpgThe 171-player field will bowl the final six-game qualifying round Wednesday after which the top 40 players will advance to modified round robin match play.

After two six-game match play rounds Thursday, the top half of the field will bowl two more six-game match play rounds Friday, with the top four players after 42 games advancing to the stepladder finals at 7:15 ET (4:15 p.m. PT).

All rounds of the Senior U.S. Open are being covered live on PBA’s Xtra Frame online video streaming service. Live scoring also is available on PBA’s official website, pba.com.
