I started bowling when I was 8 in junior leagues, but never really got serious about it until I was out of high school. That’s when I started hanging around in a local pro shop and getting interested in the inner working of bowling balls and learning how to drill them. The rest, as they say, is history. I’ve been drilling bowling balls for almost 30 years now and I love it. The satisfaction of helping someone achieve their bowling  goals is the best. I worked for the Dick Ritger Bowling Camps as the pro shop specialist for nearly 20 years. I’ve drilled balls for people from all over the world. There’s no better feeling than having someone come to you with a ball issue, and you can solve that issue and have them shoot scores they never thought they could.

I’ve always been a Hammerhead. Going all the way back to Faball and urethane. When the opportunity came along to be a part of the Hammer family, I didn’t hesitate. Hammer has always had one of the best lines of products available. The consistency is the thing that stands out the most to me. Hammer bowling balls are predictable. You can’t ask for much more from your bowling ball.
