MOHR FINDS REDEMPTION WITH WIN AT 2017 SUPER SENIOR CLASSIC

MOHR FINDS REDEMPTION WITH WIN AT 2017 SUPER SENIOR CLASSIC

LAS VEGAS – As the top seed for the finals at the 2017 Super Senior Classic, Ron Mohr of North Las Vegas, Nevada, found himself one win away from redemption and his first national victory in nearly five years, and he refused to be denied either Sunday at the Sam’s Town Bowling Center.

In a rematch of the 2016 title tilt in the same venue, Mohr was able to best defending champion Junichi Yajima of Japan, 230-188, to record the win and claim the $7,000 top prize.

Yajima, who was looking to become the first player to successfully defend a title at the Super Senior Classic, earned $5,500 for the second-place finish. Yajima defeated Mohr in the 2016 final, 248-218.

Mohr earned the top seed for the stepladder finals for the second consecutive year and started the title match with three consecutive strikes, before leaving a washout in the fourth frame, which he was unable to convert. Yajima returned the open in the fourth frame with a 7-10 split, giving Mohr a 16-pin advantage halfway through the game.

Yajima opened for a second time in the eighth frame, allowing Mohr to mark in the ninth and 10th frames to lock up the title. Mohr, a 61-year-old right-hander, sealed the win with strikes on both attempts.

“I liked the right lane, since it hooked a little more, so I knew I could go away with it a little bit and be OK,” said Mohr, an eight-time Professional Bowlers Association 50 Tour champion. “I threw it well in the ninth, but stepping up in the 10th on the left lane, I had the fourth frame in the back of my mind. I told myself I just needed to stay slow and let the ball read and get there. I didn’t need to make it get there. When the ball picked up in the midlane and turned over, I knew it was going to be a good shot. To get the ball off my hand that well, especially in that situation, is as good as it gets.”

The win ended a recent run of 12 championship-round appearances without a victory for Mohr, who collected his last PBA50 Tour title in 2012.

“After winning eight titles in a little over four years, I thought I could start getting pretty used to this,” Mohr said. “When you go winless for a couple of years, you start to wonder if you’re ever going to experience the winner’s circle again. The talent keeps getting better and better, and I’m not getting any younger, so you never know if it’s the last time. I don’t know if I’ve ever teared up for a victory before, but I started to today. It’s pretty special, especially with my wife here and in front of my hometown fans.”

The semifinal match Sunday also featured a rematch from the 2016 event as Yajima met United States Bowling Congress and PBA Hall of Famer John Petraglia of Jackson, New Jersey. Yajima again prevailed, this time by a score of 256-235.

Petraglia, down by a pin to start the 10th frame, left a 5-10 split on his first offering, which he was able to convert, but Yajima sealed the win with a strike on his first delivery.

In the opening match of the stepladder, Yajima started with six consecutive strikes on his way to a 241-192 victory against Kevin Croucher of Grants Pass, Oregon.

Croucher and Yajima earned their spots in the finals after winning their respective group stepladders Sunday morning.

Croucher made his way out of the Group A stepladder by defeating Bill Nichols of Bella Vista, Arkansas, 246-202. Nichols won the opening match against Dick Baker of Henderson, Nevada, 234-183.

Yajima won the Group B stepladder by besting Paul McCordic of Sugar Land, Texas, 225-183. Yajima defeated USBC and PBA Hall of Famer Tom Baker of King, North Carolina, in the opening match, 200-158.

The 2017 Super Senior Classic featured a sold-out field of 140 competitors, and the field was cut to the top 35 players after 12 games of qualifying. The field was reduced from 35 to 12 after six additional games for round-robin match play.

Match play featured two groups simultaneously bowling an additional six games, including a position round. The top seeds from each group automatically were seeded into the stepladder finals, with total pinfall, including bonus pins, determining the top seed.

The second, third and fourth qualifiers in each group were placed into a group stepladder to determine the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds for the main championship round.

Sam’s Town now will host the 2017 USBC Senior Masters, with competition beginning Tuesday with the opening round of qualifying. BowlTV will provide wire-to-wire coverage of the event.

MOHR EARNS TOP SEED FOR FINALS AT 2017 SUPER SENIOR CLASSIC

LAS VEGAS – Heading into the final game of match play at the 2017 Super Senior Classic, any one of four players could’ve grabbed the top seed for Sunday’s championship round, but it was frontrunner Ron Mohr of North Las Vegas, Nevada, who earned the honor for the second consecutive year.

Mohr outlasted a charging Paul McCordic of Sugar Land, Texas, in the Group B half of the match-play field and claimed the No. 1 seed for the stepladder finals with a 24-game pinfall total of 5,580, which included 30 bonus pins for each of his four wins in match play.

McCordic defeated Mohr in the position round, 236-218, but fell seven pins short of the guaranteed spot in the finals, finishing with a 5,573 total. Now, McCordic must earn a spot in the championship round by winning one of two group stepladders taking place live on BowlTV on Sunday morning at 11 a.m. Eastern.

The main stepladder finals of the 2017 Super Senior Classic will be broadcast live on BowlTV beginning Sunday at 2 p.m. Eastern, and the winner will take home a $7,000 top prize.

The other automatic spot in the finals went to United States Bowling Congress and Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Famer John Petraglia of Jackson, New Jersey, who led qualifying through 18 games this weekend at Sam’s Town and dominated the Group A standings to earn the No. 2 seed with a 5,534 pinfall total.

The new format at the Super Senior Classic mimics what is used on the Professional Women’s Bowling Association Tour, and the simultaneous group stepladders Sunday will determine the final two seeds for the championship round.

The two groups in match play each included six of the 12 remaining bowlers, with the odd-numbered qualifiers competing in Group A and the even-numbered bowlers battling in Group B for six games of round-robin competition.

At the conclusion of match play, the leader in each group automatically advanced to the finals, with seeding based on pinfall, while the second, third and fourth finishers will continue their journeys Sunday.

The opening match of the Group A stepladder will feature No. 3 Dick Baker of nearby Henderson, Nevada, taking on No. 4 William Nichols of Bella Vista, Arkansas. The winner will meet No. 2 Kevin Croucher of Grants Pass, Oregon, for a spot in the main stepladder.

The Group B stepladder will open with defending champion Junichi Yajima of Japan (No.3) taking on No. 4 USBC Hall of Famer Tom Baker of King, North Carolina, and the winner will face McCordic.

Mohr and Petraglia now find themselves in the same positions they were in at the 2016 Super Senior Classic, also held at Sam’s Town, though they’re both hoping the end result is much different.

As the top seed in 2016, Mohr bowled well against Yajima, but carry was not on his side as he fell to the event’s first international champion, 248-218. Petraglia finished third.

Even though his performance in last year’s final simply seemed unlucky, Mohr knows there’s always more that can be done.

“I bowled well but just couldn’t carry last year, but I still know I can be better and make better shots,” said Mohr, an eight-time PBA50 Tour champion who hasn’t found the winner’s circle since 2012. “At this level, it’s the small, minor adjustments that can make all the difference. These bowlers are talented, so you have to do everything you can to create an advantage.”

Heading into the final, Mohr feels he does have an advantage because his look on the event’s 40-foot oil pattern this weekend improved with the more games that were bowled on each pair of lanes.

He also gets the benefit of sleeping in his own bed and enjoying some extra rest while his fellow competitors are battling to join him in the finals.

“I didn’t like my look on the fresh, so I’m blessed to be in the third match,” said Mohr, who also made the stepladder of the 2016 USBC Senior Masters at Sam’s Town. “There will be two matches and practice shots in between, and my shot seems to get better when there’s some games and transition. I definitely feel like being the top seed is an advantage, and it’s time for me to step up and make the shots when it matters.”

The Super Senior Classic, for USBC members age 60 and older, featured a sellout field of 140 competitors, who bowled 12 games of qualifying Friday, before the field was cut to the top 35 for Saturday’s cashers’ round.

After an additional six games Saturday, the top 12, based on 18-game pinfall totals, advanced to match play.

The Super Senior Classic is the first of two premier senior events heading to Sam’s Town this week. The 2017 USBC Senior Masters, open to USBC members 50 and older, will be held June 6-11.

YAJIMA LEADS IN TITLE DEFENSE AT 2017 SUPER SENIOR CLASSIC

LAS VEGAS – Defending champion Junichi Yajima of Japan looked poised to defend his title at the Super Senior Classic, and he leads all competitors through two rounds at the 2017 event.

All 140 bowlers in the sold-out field participated in two six-game blocks Friday at Sam’s Town Bowling Center, and the field was cut to the top 35 competitors for Saturday’s cashers’ round based on the 12-game pinfall totals.

Yajima, a 71-year-old right-hander, opened his title defense with a 1,253 six-game block, but he averaged more than 244 in his second round on his way to a 1,466 total and 2,719 overall effort, a 226.58 average for 12 games.

Yajima took the proper steps to become fully acclimated to Las Vegas after his trek across the Pacific Ocean covered more than 5,500 miles.

“I still can’t believe I won last year, but it’s real,” Yajima said. “I decided to arrive in Las Vegas a week early, because I knew it would take some time to adjust after my 12-hour flight. I’ve been preparing physically and mentally to come back as the defending champion, and I’m happy with my performance today.”

The runner-up to Yajima in 2016, Ron Mohr of North Las Vegas, Nevada, sits in second place with a 2,681 total. Robert Reed of Weed, California, is third with 2,673, and Paul McCordic of Sugar Land, Texas, is fourth with 2,649.

McCordic was the runner-up at the 2016 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters, which also took place at Sam’s Town and will return to the 56-lane center starting Tuesday.

Professional Bowlers Association Tour titlist Darryl Bower of Middletown, Pennsylvania, earned the final spot in the cashers’ round at the 2017 Super Senior Classic with a 2,438 total, a 203.17 average.

Bowlers advancing to Saturday’s cashers’ round will return to the lanes at Sam’s Town starting at noon Eastern.

All advancers will bowl six additional games Saturday before the field is cut to 12 for two groups of round-robin match play. Match play will consist of six games, including a position round.

At the end of match play, the top qualifier in each group will earn an automatic spot in Sunday’s stepladder finals, with seeding being determined by total pins. The second, third and fourth qualifiers in each group will advance to a group stepladder final Sunday. The winner of each group stepladder also will advance to the stepladder finals and meet in the opening match.

The winner of the 2017 Super Senior Classic will take home the top prize of $7,000.

BOWL.com’s BowlTV will begin providing coverage of the 2017 Super Senior Classic with Saturday’s cashers’ round.
