PBA 50 South Shore Open Lead by Harry Sullins in Round One

Hoping to end a streak of three seasons without a PBA50 Tour win, Harry Sullins of Chesterfield Township, Mich., averaged 249 to lead first round qualifying Tuesday in the PBA50 South Shore Open presented by DV8 at Olympia Lanes.

Sullins, whose last PBA50 Tour win came at Olympia Lanes in August of 2011,
bowled a 1,995 eight-game pinfall with games of 215, 258, 236, 244, 268, 277,
245 and 252 to lead two-time PBA Tour winner Jack Jurek of Lackawanna, N.Y., in second with a 1,988 pinfall.

“It’s been a while since I’ve hoisted a trophy in a tour event,” said Sullins,
who has won five PBA Tour titles and three PBA50 Tour titles. “I’ve done pretty
well at this center so I’d like nothing better than to end my winless streak

Sullins, has three top-five finishes this season including fourth-place finishes
in the Miller High Life Classic and Grants Pass Open, and a fifth-place finish
in last week’s Dayton Classic.

“My game is where I want it to be but the competition gets so tough in match
play,” Sullins said. “I’m working hard, just need to keep hammering away at it.”

Jurek, trying for his first PBA50 Tour win, is coming off a fourth-place finish
in the Dayton Classic and a second-place finish in the USBC Senior Masters in
his last two PBA50 tournaments.

Rounding out the top eight after the first round were Hall of Famers Parker Bohn
III, Jackson, N.J., 1,969; Pete Weber, St. Ann, Mo., 1,953 and Amleto Monacelli,
Venezuela, 1,944, followed by John Chapman, Canada, 1,942; Kenny Parks, Hammond, Ind., 1,927, and Hall of Famer Randy Pedersen, Orlando, Fla., 1,925.

Defending champion Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla., who rolled the
round’s only 300 game, finished in ninth with 1,922.

The 77-player field will return Wednesday for another eight-game qualifying
round which will determine the top 24 players who will advance to Thursday’s
match play rounds. The championship rounds are scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday.

The South Shore Open, which is the second to last tournament of the 2014 season, can be seen on PBA’s online bowling channel Xtra Frame.  For subscription and schedule information click on the Xtra Frame logo on the pba.com homepage.
