Mohr Bowls Second Perfect Game on Way to Top Qualifier Honors in

PBA50 Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic

ANDERSON, Ind. (Aug. 6, 2018) – Ron Mohr of Las Vegas, bowled his second 300 game in two days on his way to becoming the top qualifier Monday in the PBA50 Dave Small’s Championship Lanes Classic presented by Roto Grip.

The 62-year-old Mohr, who led after Sunday’s first round, finished qualifying with a 3,912 16-game overall pinfall total (244.5 average) after bowling games of 256, 238, 300, 247, 247, 206, 234 and 225 in the second round.

“You never know what’s going to happen from one day to the next but I made sure to make a mental note of how the lanes played yesterday,” Mohr said. “Today, they were pretty close to yesterday so that helped me make the adjustments I needed to make throughout the round a little easier.”

The PBA Hall of Famer and two-time PBA50 Player of the Year holds the record for most 300s in a tournament with four other players at three. With one day to go in the tournament, the Fort Wayne, Ind., native will have another opportunity to challenge the record.

“As the tournament leader, the target’s on your back somewhat but that’s a good position to be in,” Mohr added. “So far, I’ve had as good a look as I’ve had all year so I’m heading into match play with a lot of confidence.”

Mohr is trying for his second win of the season having won the PBA50 Northern California Classic in May for his 10th career PBA50 Tour title.

Tournament defending champion hall of famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., bowled the 114th 300 game of his PBA career in the second round and finished qualifying in second with a 3,878 pinfall. Bohn, who leads the PBA perfect game all-time list, had games of 239, 268, 187, 216, 236, 300, 265 and 266 in his second round.

By finishing in the top eight, Mohr, Bohn and six other players will advance directly into Tuesday’s second match play round. Also, advancing were hall of famer Walter Ray Williams Jr., Oxford, Fla., 3,756; three-time PBA50 Tour winner Bob Learn Jr., Erie, Pa., 3,752; hall of famer Amleto Monacelli, Venezuela, 3,751; Kevin Duncan, Mexico, Mo., who also bowled his second 300 game of the tournament, 3,706; Doug Henry, Columbus,Ind., 3,688, and John Marsala, St. Louis, Mo., 3,658.

The top 16 players advance to match play with positions 17-28 and eight PBA60 players advancing to a cashers’ round Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET to determine eight additional match play spots. After Tuesday’s match play rounds the top five bowlers will be determined for the stepladder finals at 7 p.m.
