Bowling News USA - April 29, 2014 Weber Leads PBA50 Miller High Life Classic

PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber averaged 248.8 to lead first-round qualifying in the PBA50 Miller High Life Classic presented by Columbia 300 Monday.

Weber, the 2013 PBA50 Rookie of the Year, finished Monday’s round with a 1,991 pinfall total with games of 256, 238, 258, 215, 269, 248, 300 and 207 at George Pappas’ Victory Lanes.

Weber used a Roto Grip Uproar.

The 37-time PBA Tour winner is trying for his third career PBA50 Tour title after winning the USBC Senior Masters and the Treasure Island Resort & Casino Open in 2013. In the two previous tournaments this season he has third and seventh-place finishes.

“I have no complaints and feel as good as I have for the past two years,” said the 51-year-old Weber. “The person who I really trust with analyzing my game is my brother Rich. When he isn’t giving me advice, that’s a good thing because I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing.

“The one thing I have to concentrate on doing is staying relaxed but I think I’m doing a good job of that.”

Weber holds a 53-pin lead over Mike Dias of Lafayette, Colo., who finished the round in second with 1,938. Rounding out the top eight are Harry Sullins, Chesterfield Township, Mich., 1,925; Dick Gran, Hartville, Ohio, 1,890; Dale Csuhta, Wadsworth, Ohio, 1,878; Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III, Jackson, N.J., 1,859; Ray Johnson, Battle Creek, Mich., 1,857, and Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., 1,855.

The 140-player field returns Tuesday for the second eight-game qualifying round which will determine the top 40 players who will advance to match play beginning Wednesday morning. Championship rounds will get underway at 6:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
