    2013 PBA50 Tour #7

    2013PBA5007SamCarter.jpgSam Carter (pictured left) of Ben Lomond, Calif., took the lead after the first round of qualifying Monday at the 2013 United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters. Carter put together a five-game block of 1,142 (228.4 average) to lead the field of 268 of the top senior bowlers age 50 and over in the world at South Point Bowling Center.

    "I was all over the place, trying every angle to the pocket so I could carry," Carter said. "When you lost that angle into the pocket, it was very easy to get nine pins. But I managed to strike on the pairs I could strike on."

    Carter, who had games of 232, 279, 193, 245 and 193, bowled on the "burn" condition in the opening round but will face fresh oil in the next two rounds.

    Mike Dias (left) of Lafayette, Colo., had a chance to take the lead in the final game of the day but left a 7 pin on his second shot in the 10th frame to sit in second place with 1,133 (226.6 average).

    Marc Lineberry (right) of Camanche, Iowa, shot 287 in his final game to secure the third position in the standings with 1,124, while PBA Hall of Famer Randy Pedersen of Clermont, Fla., is fourth with 1,123.

    201213PBAAmletoMonacelli.jpg2013EBT04PeterKnopp3.jpgFormer PWBA star Tish Johnson of Colorado Springs, Colo., sits in tenth place with 1,104. Last week's PBA Senior U.S. Open winner Amleto Monacelli (left), a native Venezuelan who lives in Miami, Fla., finished the round in 16th place with 1,093. Germany's Peter Knopp (right) is the only other international player in the top 63 in 31st place with 1,065.

    All participants will bowl 15 games of qualifying before the cut is made to the double-elimination match-play bracket. The top 63 players plus defending champion Mike Edwards of Tulsa, Okla., will take part in bracket play beginning Thursday morning.
