Parker Bohn III, Jerry Horn top PBA50 Mooresville Open Qualifying

by Jerry Schneider, Professional Bowlers Association 0

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (April 30, 2019) – PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III and non-member Jerry Horn of West Columbia, South Carolina, both bowled a 3,693 16-game pinfall total to tie for top-qualifier honors in the PBA50 Mooresville Open presented by the Mooresville Convention & Visitors Bureau and Storm Tuesday at Victory Lanes Family Entertainment Center.

Bohn, a 35-time PBA Tour and four-time PBA50 Tour titlist, bowled games of 192, 255, 206, 236, 246, 237, 212 and 248 in Tuesday’s final round to tie Horn for the lead.

“So far, everything is going pretty well but I’m having trouble in the 10th frame for some reason,” said the 55-year-old Bohn, whose last PBA50 Tour win came in the 2017 Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic.  “I’m putting together nine solid frames but I’m finishing with a lot of splits and opens at the end and I’m going to have to fix that.

“When it comes time for when we start match play, it becomes a sprint to the finish,” Bohn added. “I can guarantee you that I’m going to have to finish games better than I did today to make it to the finals.”

Horn, bowling in his first PBA50 Tour tournament, bowled games of 246, 209, 215, 268, 205, 254, 202 and 248 after Tuesday’s first second-round block.

“It was a different block for me today than the first round,” said Horn, who works full-time as an ATM technician. “Today, I was able to use one ball and just make the adjustments with my speed and angles to the pocket. I’m just trying to not look too far ahead and keep focused on what I need to do each frame.”

Bohn and Horn led eight players who earned two-round byes into match play. Rounding out the top eight were Todd Kjell, Roscoe, Illinois and Scott Greiner, Sunrise Beach, Missouri, who tied for third with 3,692; first-round leader Rick Graham, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 3,683; Ricky Schissler, Brighton, Colorado, 3,681; John Marsala, St. Louis, Missouri, 3,660 and PBA Hall of Famer Bryan Goebel, Shawnee, Kansas, 3,644.

The top 24 players advanced to Wednesday’s match play who will be joined by an additional eight players that will be determined through a casher’s round that begins at 8:30 a.m. ET. After match play, the top five players will be determined for the stepladder finals at 7 p.m.

PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr., the winner of the first two tournaments of the season, climbed from 55th after the first round to finish qualifying in 33rd with a 3,529 pinfall advancing to the cashers round.

Defending champion 60-year-old PBA Hall of Famer Brian Voss also advanced to the cashers round by placing second among the eight PBA60 Players finishing out of the regular prize fund. Voss finished with a 3,453 pinfall.

John Dudak of Orland Park, Illinois earned the last PBA60 spot (eighth) for the cashers round by beating James Storts of Westfield, Indiana in a one-game roll-off 182-176 after tying with 3,415.
