Parker Bohn III keeps PBA50 Player of the Year hopes alive


PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III bowled a 300 and 299 game back-to-back, and averaged 246 in the second round of the PBA50 DeHayes Insurance Group Championship presented by Pro Bowl West and Ebonite Monday, to lead qualifying and keep his hopes alive to win PBA50 Player of the Year.

After finishing Sunday’s first round in sixth with a 1,837 eight-game pinfall total, Bohn (above) bowled 1,969 with games of 222, 227, 247, 246, 185, 243, 300 and 299 in the second round at Pro Bowl West heading into Tuesday’s match play rounds. A stubborn 7 pin on the final ball of the 10th frame of the last game prevented his bid for back-to-back perfect games.

“Everything was going great (in the round) except for that fifth game,” Bohn said. “I couldn’t figure out the left lane on that pair but I struck every time on the right lane. After that game I stayed with the same ball and just adjusted my delivery so that I got more forward roll on the ball and I was back on track.”

Bohn led qualifying by 131 pins with a 3,806 16-game qualifying pinfall over fellow hall of famer Brian Voss (left) who finished qualifying in second with 3,675.

It was another dominating qualifying performance for Bohn who led qualifying by 312 pins on his way to winning last week’s Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic for his first win of the season.

Brian LeClair (right) of Delmar, N.Y., who advanced to match play by qualifying 19th with a 3,529 pinfall, holds the player of the year point lead but since points are awarded for both qualifying and final finishing position, Bohn still has a chance for the title but must win.

If Bohn wins, LeClair would have to finish second to clinch player of the year honors meaning those two players would face off in the championship stepladder match given that scenario.

“Realistically, I’m out here to win and then we’ll see where the pieces fall—we’ll just have to see how it all unfolds,” Bohn (left) said. “Brian has had a great year and there’s a lot of work to be done, but if that door opens for me I’ll certainly take advantage of the opportunity.”

Hall of Famer Norm Duke (right), who qualified 11th for Tuesday’s match play with 3,585, is in third in player of the year points and can also take the crown with a win. Should Duke win, LeClair would have to finish third to clinch the title.

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

Rounding out the top five after qualifying were Rick Francis, Linden, Calif., 3,670; Mike Dias, Lafayette, Colo., 3,663, and hall of famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. (left), 3,652.
