Parker Bohn III tops Qualifying in PBA50 Mooresville Open


PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., parlayed the momentum of his fourth-place finish in the PBA50 National Championship last Saturday, to lead qualifying Tuesday heading into the match play rounds of the PBA50 Mooresville Open presented by Columbia 300 at George Pappas’ Victory Lanes in Mooresville, N.C.

Bohn (featured photo and right) led qualifying with a 3,747 16-game pinfall total (234 average) bowling 1,882 in Tuesday’s second round with games of 248, 257, 267, 217, 247, 181, 258 and 207.

“Looking at the way things unfolded in the National Championship I have no complaints right now,” said the 54-year-old Bohn, who won the 2014 PBA50 Miller High Life Classic at George Pappas Victory Lanes for his first PBA50 Tour title. “I started slow in qualifying but I finally started figuring things out in the second round and kept the momentum going for the rest of the tournament.”

Before the start of the season Bohn experimented with some changes to his grip hoping to improve his pin carry but was disappointed with the results and made the right decision to go back to his normal grip.

“I’m pretty happy with my ability to consistently get to the pocket but I’m always interested in trying something that will improve pin carry,” said the 35-time PBA Tour and four-time PBA50 Tour winner. “I tried a few things and didn’t like the results so I went back to my original grip and feel pretty comfortable making the adjustments I need to make.”

Bohn edged out Mooresville Open defending champion and fellow hall of famer Norm Duke (left) of Clermont, Fla., who finished qualifying just five pins behind in second with 3,742. Duke, who finished second in the PBA50 National Championship, bowled 1,797 in the second round with games of 222, 249, 213, 172, 224, 235, 258, and 224.

Rounding out the top eight after qualifying who will be seeded into the second match play round were James Hansen, Anchorage, Alaska, 3,653; PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber (right), St. Ann, Mo., 3,646; five-time PBA Tour winner Ryan Shafer, Horseheads, N.Y., 3,641; PBA Hall of Fame Bryan Goebel, Shawnee, Kan., 3,626; Stony Baker, Canton, Ga., 3,623, and PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. (below left), Oxford, Fla. 3,621.

PBA50 National Championship winner Lennie Boresch Jr. of Kenosha, Wis., advanced to the cashers round finishing qualifying in 30th with a 3,421 pinfall total.

The top 39 players plus eight PBA60 players advance to Wednesday’s cashers and match play rounds which will begin at 8:30 a.m. After match play the top five players will be determined for the stepladder finals at 7 p.m.
