PDW2Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., has been selected as the June 2015 Kegel Bowler of the Month by the International Bowling Media Association.

After averaging more than 214 in qualifying, Weber maintained the pace in the 32-game match play portion, going 20-12, while not falling lower than sixth place.

Weber now has four PBA50 Tour titles, including two majors. The 2013 PBA50 Rookie of the Year is the owner of 37 PBA Tour titles, including a record-tying 10 majors.

With four remaining events on the PBA50 schedule, including the USBC Senior Masters, Weber is the leader on the competition points list for PBA50 Player of the Year.
