PBA and USBC Hall of Famer Brian Voss coming off a third-place finish in the PBA Senior U.S. Open posted the top score in the opening round of qualifying Monday at the 2014 USBC Senior Masters.

Voss had a five-game total of 1,207 (241.4 average) to lead the field of 310 of the world’s top senior bowlers age 50 and older at South Point Bowling Center.

"I've got my two sons, who are 21 and 23, with me for their first trip to Las Vegas, so that adds some incentive to bowl well," Voss said. "It's always nice to bowl well when you have family in town watching."

Voss fired games of 224, 246, 257, 266 and 214 en route to the overall lead after the opening round. All players return Tuesday for the second round, which begins live on BOWL.com's BowlTV at 8 a.m. Pacific.

Powered by the tournament's only 300 game, Mike Saville of Spokane, Wash., sits in second place with 1,183. Bo Goergen of Sanford, Mich., is third with 1,182, Jim Starks of San Bernardino, Calif., is fourth with 1,180 and Barry Zimmerman of Grand Forks, N.D., is fifth with 1,179.

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 Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., will take part in bracket play beginning Thursday morning.

The players are battling for a piece of the $144,400 prize fund. First place in the event pays $18,000.

All rounds of the Senior Masters are being broadcast live on BOWL.com's BowlTV. For more information on the event, visit BOWL.com/SeniorMasters.
