Teenagers Test Their Skills at U.S. Open

Young bowlers appear to be increasingly eager to test their skills against the most challenging scoring environments the sport can throw at them. Among the 394 players entered in the 69th U.S. Open at Brunswick Zone-Carolier in North Brunswick, N.J., were 11 bowlers ages 17 and under.

Youth bowlers are allowed to bowl in PBA competition provided they have submitted signed parental consent agreements. Bowlers who wish to protect their amateur eligibility are required to designate any prize money earned will be deposited in their United States Bowling Congress SMART scholarship accounts. Youth bowlers also are allowed to bowl as adults if they make that designation with parental approval.
