Webb retains lead in Mooresville

Wayne Webb relied on his arsenal of bowling equipment once again to help him retain the lead after the second round of the PBA Senior Mooresville Classic presented by Columbia Tuesday at George Pappas Victory Lanes.

Webb, an innovator in using knowledge of bowling ball mechanics and drilling layouts to achieve desired ball reaction since his days competing on the PBA Tour where he won 20 titles, led with a 3,969 16-game overall pinfall total (248 average). In Tuesday’s second round he had a 1,962 eight-game pinfall with games of 255, 256, 199, 300, 234, 217, 279 and 222.

“I put my experience to good use the past two days,” said the Hall of Famer. “One of my strengths is having an idea of what equipment to use to sometimes create something that isn’t there and get the desired results.”

In Monday’s qualifying round Webb used three different balls and two in Tuesday’s round to help him adjust to the changing lane conditions.

“I started with one of the balls I used yesterday thinking it would give me the same ball reaction today but it was hooking way too early,” said Webb, who is five-time Senior Tour titlist and was the 2010 Senior Player of the Year. “The lanes played differently in today’s first block so I went to another ball that gave me a similar look as yesterday and had good luck with it.”

Webb heads a field of 32 players who advanced to Wednesday’s match play rounds dominating qualifying by holding a 181-pin lead over Mike Henry of Brunswick, Ohio in second with 3,788. As a result of finishing in the top eight, Webb and Henry earned two byes for match play.

Rounding out the top eight and also earning two byes in match play were Bob Learn Jr., Erie, Pa., 3,711; Charlie Tapp, Kalamazoo, Mich., 3,667; Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., 3,561; Tom Baker, King, N.C., 3,549; Kenny Parks, Hammond, Ind., 3,547, and Ron Mohr, Eagle River, Alaska, 3,545.
