Parker Bohn III moves to the top in PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open


PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., bowled eight games without an open frame and averaged 240 to lead qualifying after the second round Monday in the PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open presented by Brunswick at Farmingdale Lanes in Farmingdale, N.Y.

Bohn (pictured above), a 35-time PBA Tour titlist and three-time PBA50 Tour winner, led qualifying with a 3,845 16-game pinfall total bowling games of 278, 239, 278, 217, 217, 279, 245 and 216 in the second round after finishing the first round in fifth with 1,876.

“I’ve had a clean round a few times and there’s always a lot of satisfaction when you can do that.” said the 53-year-old Bohn. “When you think of everything that can happen in a round there’s a certain amount of pride you can take in bowling 80 clean frames.

“I did have a couple small splits and left the 3-7 (split) early on so I had to work a little to keep the string going,” Bohn added.

Bohn is hoping for his first PBA50 Tour title since winning the Pasco County Florida Open and Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open in 2015. He had a best finish of second in 2016 and this season has a best finish of third which came in the UnitedHealthcare Sun Bowl in The Villages.

“I would say I’m bowling okay,” Bohn said. “I haven’t done anything stellar but I think I’ve got a good foundation. I’m just looking for that breakthrough moment that will move my game up a notch.”

First round leader Todd Lathrop (left) of Colchester, Conn., finished qualifying in second 62 pins behind Bohn with a 3,783 pinfall.

Hall of Famer Brian Voss (above right) of Centennial, Colo., a 25-time PBA Tour and one-time PBA50 Tour titlist, finished third with 3,769.

Voss was followed by five-time PBA Tour and three-time PBA50 Tour winner Bob Learn Jr. (left) of Erie, Pa., 3,694, and two-time PBA50 Player of the Year Ron Mohr (right) of Las Vegas rounding out the top five with 3,688.

Defending champion Pete Weber (left) of St. Ann, Mo., finished qualifying in ninth with 3,596. In 2016, the Johnny Petraglia BVL Open was the third of a record four consecutive PBA50 Tour wins during the season for the Hall of Famer. The two-time reigning PBA50 Player of the Year went on to win two more titles for a record six wins during the season.

The top 16 players advanced into Tuesday’s match play rounds. Players qualifying 17th-28th plus eight PBA60 players advanced to a cashers round that will determine eight additional match play spots. After match play concludes, the top five will be determined for the stepladder finals scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.
