Ron Mohr leads top 32 into match play at PBA60 Killer ‘B’ Open


Two-time PBA50 Player of the Year, and defending PBA60 Player of the Year Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, averaged 232.5 to top qualifying in the PBA60 Killer ‘B’ Open at Lane Glo Bowl leading 32 players into Monday’s match play round.

Mohr (right and above), who is still trying for his first title in a PBA60 event (for players 60 and over), finished with a 1,401 pinfall total in the first six-game block Sunday and followed it up with 1,390 in the second for a 2,791 overall pinfall to edge four-time PBA50 Player of the Year Tom Baker (left) of King, N.C., in second with 2,785.

“I bowled really well last year but could never finish the deal,” said Mohr, an eight-time PBA50 Tour winner. “That’s why I’ve really been excited about getting back out here and see what I can do about that.

“I don’t know how much I can tell from qualifying today but it’s a good start and a good confidence builder to be sure,” Mohr added. “I had a bad fourth game in the second block mainly because I didn’t have a good read on that pair but overall things were good.”

Last season Mohr had a combined eight top-five finishes in PBA50 and PBA60 events with a best of second in the PBA50 UnitedHealthcare PBA50 Sun Bowl in The Villages and the PBA60 Dick Weber Classic. His last win on the PBA50 Tour came in the 2012 PBA Senior Decatur (Ill.) Open.

Rounding out the top five were Jeff Bellinger, Columbia, S.C., 2,778; Sam Maccarone, Blackwood, N.J., 2,769, and Kevin Croucher, Grants Pass, Ore., 2,764.

After Monday’s match play round, the top five players will be determined for the stepladder finals at noon ET.

The PBA50 Pasco County Florida Open, for players 50 and over, begins Tuesday at Lane Glo Bowl with first round qualifying. Qualifying continues on Wednesday which will determine the top 32 players who will advance to match play on Thursday. The top five players will advance to the stepladder finals at 4 p.m.
