When you’re hot, you’re hot! Congratulations once again to Team Turbo staff member Ron Mohr on winning the PBA60 Dick Weber Championship in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The 62-year old and recent PBA Hall of Fame inductee won all four stepladder finals matches and threw three strikes in the 10th frame of the title match to win.
“I felt really confident on the right lane so I wasn’t worried about that,” said Mohr, who bowled his 10th frame on the right lane. “The left lane was the challenge and I found myself having to make a number of adjustments. I just had to read and react, stay in the moment and keep telling myself to stay slow.”
It was Mohr’s second senior win of the season after winning the PBA50 Northern California Classic in May for his 10th PBA50 Tour title.
Mohr found himself dangerously close to elimination more than once in the tournament. He started the tournament 44th after the first qualifying round and scrambled to make the cut to match play finishing second round qualifying in 25th after dropping as low as 31st. He then had to win his position round match in the final game of match play Thursday morning to take the fifth qualifying spot for the finals.
“I’ve made a lot of comebacks in a tournament for a good finish, or to win, but this one ranks right at the top,” said Mohr, who now makes his home in Las Vegas. “I don’t recall ever being on the brink of being eliminated as much as I was in this tournament.
“It’s a spectacular way to wrap up the season where I accomplished way more than I thought I would,” he added. “This is extra special because I grew up here.”
A shout out as well to Turbo Team members, Harry Sullins, Sam Ventura and Chris Keane who also finished in the top 5 for the event!
