Wayne Webb Prepares for His Senior Tour Comeback

There's a new article up on about Wayne Webb. After earning PBA Senior Player of the Year honors last season, he underwent his second knee surgery of the last seven months and is slowly working himself back into bowling shape so he can compete during the remainder of this senior season.

First up for him will be the PBA Senior U.S. Open to be held June 12-17 at the Suncoast Bowling Center in Las Vegas. Webb, who's 53 and operates a bowling center in Columbus, Ohio, is a 20 time champion and former TOC winner and Player of the Year on the regular tour. He also won back-to-back Senior U.S. Opens in 2008 and 2009 and will be inducted into the USBC Hall of Fame in Grapevine, Texas on July 1.

Webb says, "I'm practicing on a limited basis and still undergoing some therapy, so I'm hopeful I will see more improvement by the time the tournament starts. It's just going to take a little more time to get where it needs to be."

Wayne Webb has always been one of my favorite bowlers, and I'd like nothing better than to see him return to action. But I don't want him to try to come back before his knee has healed. Last season, he came back too soon after his first knee surgery and, even though finishing ninth, aggravated his knee so much during the 2010 Senior U.S. Open that he had to have a second knee operation later. I hope the same thing doesn't happen to him again this season.

You can read the entire story on here, watch the match play rounds of the upcoming Senior U.S. Open on PBA Xtra Frame June 16-17, and see a video below about his Senior Masters title last season where he beat Walter Ray Williams Jr. in the championship match.
