Parker Bohn III dominates qualifying at David Small’s Championship Lanes


Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., averaged 240.4 for 16 games to dominate qualifying in the PBA50 Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic presented by Roto Grip.

After a 1,879 eight-game pinfall total in Sunday’s first round, Bohn (right and above) pulled away with 1,968 in the second round Monday to finish with 3,847 heading into Tuesday’s match play. He bowled games of 245, 246, 255, 299, 246, 183, 247 and 247 in the second round.

Three-time PBA50 Tour titlist Bob Learn Jr. (left) of Erie, Pa., finished qualifying a distant second 312 pins behind with 3,535 (220.9 average).

Bohn, a 35-time PBA Tour titlist and three-time PBA50 Tour winner, is trying for his first win of the season after previous best finishes of second in the PBA50 Tour Miller Lite Players Championship and third in the PBA50 UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl in The Villages.

“It’s a confidence builder but you have to fight to the bitter end,” said Bohn, whose last PBA50 Tour win came in the 2015 PBA50 Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open. “I’ve won from the front and I’ve won by going through the field, so you just do what it takes.

“Over the last couple seasons If feel like I’ve been a little snake-bit,” he added. “It seems like a lot of guys have thrown their best games against me in match play and the finals. All I can do is just keep knocking at the door and hopefully good things will happen.”

Learn, also is trying for his first win of the season after runner-up finishes in the Sun Bowl In The Villages and last week’s PBA50 South Shore Open.

PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke (right) of Clermont, Fla., surged into third posting a 3,510 pinfall. After finishing the first round in 21st with a 1,652 pinfall he bounced back with 1,858 in the second round.

“I didn’t like anything I was doing yesterday,” Duke said of his first round. “I think I was in protection mode and was still adjusting from last week’s higher scoring environment to something a little more challenging this week.”

Duke, who ranks third on the PBA Tour all-time titles list with 38 wins, is trying for his second PBA50 Tour win of the season and fifth of his career.

Rounding out the top five were PBA Hall of Famer Doug Kent (left) of Newark, N.Y., in fourth with 3,483 and Scott Merritt of Iowa City, Iowa, with 3,478. Defending champion hall of famer Brian Voss (below right) of Centennial, Colo., finished sixth with 3,476.

The top 24 players advanced to Tuesday’s match play rounds with eight additional players advancing to match play after a cashers qualifying round Tuesday morning. After match play, the top five players will advance to the stepladder finals at 7 p.m. EDT.
