After Tough 2018, Pete Weber Says He's Healthy Again

After missing the opening event of the season last week, Pete Weber is back for the PBA Oklahoma Open, which starts Tuesday on FloBowling.

Weber’s health has been a question after he withdrew in dramatic fashion from the U.S. Open just over two months ago, but he tells FloBowling he’s feeling good and ready to go this week.

“Since October, I’ve been going to the chiropractor twice a week,” said Weber, who has bowled five smaller tournaments in the past two months and finished all of them. “He does pressure points with me, and he’s just making me feel really good.”

After a tough 2018 in which he only competed in a handful of PBA Tour events and had just three Top 10 finishes in PBA50 events, Weber said he’s ready for a fresh start.

“I’m so glad 2018 is over; I really am,” Weber said. “It was probably one of the worst years of my life as far as bowling goes. My expectations in 2019 are to go out and compete – make some finals, make some shows. I don’t feel like I’m done by any means. As long as I can stay healthy, I feel like I can compete.”

As for the repercussions of his public outburst at the U.S. Open? Weber said he was fined by the United States Bowling Congress. He paid it and closed the book on that chapter.

“I did get fined $250 by the USBC,” Weber said. “I just got the letter right before Christmas. I didn’t hear anything from them for two months and now all the sudden I got fined. I didn’t think anything was going to happen. I just paid it Thursday.”

Weber does not plan to bowl every PBA Tour stop this season and will skip the PBA Lubbock Sports Open later this month. He said he is planning to bowl the Tournament of Champions, Players Championship and Indianapolis Open all of which occur in February.
