In 1996 he won the all around championship for the Madison Area junior Bowlers Association, the Bob Minter-Roger Kasper Memorial Award, for being the most over his average for the tournament. His Team, Rob Bailey’s Pro Shop, also won the “E” Division that year. Team members were Nate Taylor, Jeff Chase, Joseph Yelk, Nic Carlson, and Gregory Conner.He has worked in the Pro-Shop since 1996, and is a certified RBPS Ball driller, measurer, and layout specialist.

He is a good bowler in his own right, having high finishes in the MBA tournament, finishing as high as 2nd in All Events in 2005 with a 2101 scratch total, and is Rob’s doubles partner in MBA tournaments and State Tournament. He has had 290’s and 11 in a row, but is still looking for his first 300 game. He started bowling in the ABC/USBC tournament in 2002.

He is married to Marci and they live in Columbus, and they have two sons, Caden, born April 28, 2010, and Blake born May 5th 2012!  And, yes, they each come out and bowl, but are hooked on the ramp right now.  Caden is at least exploring the possibility of pushing it down the lane.
