Competing in his first PBA50 Tour event of the season, PBA Hall of Famer Doug Kent leads after two rounds of qualifying at the 2019 USBC Senior Masters.

Kent, a 10-time winner on the PBA Tour, has a 10-game total of 2,337, a 233.7 average, to lead the field of 300 players at Sam’s Town in Las Vegas.

After opening the tournament with 1,157 on the double burn, Kent smashed the burn for 1,180 on Wednesday afternoon. He had games of 253, 205, 254, 258 and 210 in his second-round effort.

Results: USBC Senior Masters Qualifying Round 2

Kent will now take on the more difficult fresh condition in his final round to close out qualifying Thursday.

Gary Faulkner, who shot a blistering 1,183 on the fresh in the first round, put up 1,137 on the double burn Wednesday to move into second place with 2,320.

Mike Edwards, who like Kent is another former full-time PBA Tour player competing in his first PBA50 event of the season, moved up to third place with 2,314. Ricky Schissler is fourth with 2,312, while Blaine Weninger is fifth with 2,310.

First-round leader Steve Smith, a former Team USA member, made a big slide down the standings. After shooting 1,238 on the burn in Tuesday’s opening round, Smith was gobbled up by the fresh in the second round, shooting just 933. He sits in 52nd place with 2,171 and will look to rebound on the double burn in the final round.

Walter Ray Williams Jr., the favorite to win the PBA50 Player of the Year race after starting the season with three consecutive victories, made a big jump up the standings. He sat in 31st place after the first round but moved up to eighth place with 2,298.

Defending Senior Masters champion Chris Warren is guaranteed a spot in the 64-player match-play bracket but is bowling qualifying to try to improve upon his seeding. He currently sits in a tie for 40th place with 2,188.

With just five games remaining before the cut to match play is made, Hugh Miller sits in 64th place with 2,152. As long as Warren is within the top 64, the cut position will be 64th but should Warren drop outside that number, the cut rises to 63rd place.
