Style: Right

Sean, like so many, got into bowling because of his parents. They bowled several leagues, and he got interested in the sport by watching them. It wasn’t long before Sean was competing in youth leagues. Giving back is what Sean considers his greatest accomplishment. From running youth scholarship events to hosting national tour stops, Sean is most proud of what he has been able contribute back to the sport. When choosing an arsenal, Sean feels Global offers a product line that makes ball changes easy to decide upon due to the complementary nature of the bowling balls. The Honey Badger Extreme Solid and Ordnance Pearl are Sean’s favorite 900 Global pieces because they helped him win his first PBA title after signing with Global. When not on tour or conducting clinics, Sean enjoys golfing and spending time at home with his family.
