Williams, Monacelli, Weber Top 2013 PBA50 Tour Stats

SEATTLE – Three of the Professional Bowlers Association’s greatest players topped the season-ending PBA50 Tour stats for average, earnings and competition points.

After earning his second consecutive PBA50 Player of the Year crown, Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., topped the earnings and standard competition points lists while finishing third in the average category behind fellow Hall of Famers Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., and Amleto Monacelli of Venezuela.

During the 11-tournament 2013 season PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame provided nearly 130 hours of live coverage of PBA50 Tour events.

Bowling in all 11 tournaments and leading all competitors with three titles, Williams led earnings with $41,175, competition points with 204,157 and he placed third on the average list – based upon a minimum of 150 games bowled – with a 229.46 average for 304 games. Along with his three titles, Williams had two thirds, two fourths, including the Suncoast Senior U.S. Open, and had three other 10th-place finishes including the USBC Senior Masters. Player of the Year points earned for top four finishes determined the PBA50 Player of the Year title.

Competing in his fourth PBA50 Tour season, the PBA Tour’s all-time titles leader now has seven PBA50 Tour titles.

Weber, who bowled in only six events in his first year as a PBA50 Tour competitor, led the average category, scoring at a 233.77 pace for 154 games, and ending the season second in earnings ($32,000) and sixth in competition points (127,667).

Weber won two titles, including his first PBA50 Tour major in the USBC Senior Masters, in his third tournament. He also won the season-ending Treasure Island Resort & Casino presented by MOTIV Open in Welch, Minn., a victory that gave him the PBA50 Rookie of the Year title (also based on points awarded for top four finishes). Weber also had two third-place finishes, a fourth and a ninth.

Competing in eight tournaments in his second PBA50 Tour season, Monacelli finished second in average (230.48), third in earnings ($29,850) and second in competition points (159,339).

Monacelli, a 19-time winner on the PBA Tour, successfully defended his Suncoast PBA Senior U.S. Open title for his second career PBA50 Tour title. Other top finishes included two seconds, two fifth and two eighth-place finishes. He was the top qualifier in five of the eight tournaments he competed in.

As the top three in Player of the Year points, Williams, Monacelli and Weber earned the three berths for the PBA50 Tour Finals which will be conducted as part of World Series of Bowling V in Las Vegas in early November.

Tim Kauble of Marion, Ohio, finished in the top eight of the Treasure Island Resort and Casino Open to become the PBA50 Tour’s first Super Senior Player of the Year, nipping PBA Hall of Famer Dale Eagle of Tavares, Fla. The honor for players ages 60 and older was based upon the tour’s competition points standings. Kauble had top finishes of fourth, sixth and seventh during the season.
