Kamron Doyle Becomes Youngest Bowler to Cash at PBA Event

Kamron Doyle, 12, finished 30th in the PBA’s Open Regional tournament and took home $400

A 12-year-old boy has become the youngest bowler to earn money at a Professional Bowlers Association event — but he can’t spend that cash right away.

Kamron Doyle of Brentwood, Tenn., finished 30th in the PBA’s Canton (Ga.) Open Regional tournament Sunday, receiving $400 that will be deposited into a scholarship account.

Bowling as a non-PBA member, he had a 2,797 13-game pinfall total for a 215.1 average. The sixth-grader was competing against a 94-player field that included some of the top regional and national tour professional players from the organization’s South region.

“After that he was hooked,” his mother, Cathy, said, according to PBA.com. “Before we knew it he was bowling three days a week and at this point I think he’s got about 60 bowling balls.”

Doyle said he’s already thinking about his future in the sport, according to the PBA.com.

“When I’m ready for college I’d like to go to Wichita State or Weber State because they are two of the top bowling schools,” he said, according to the report. “After that I’d like to bowl on the PBA Tour.”

  1. What I dont understand is that he is under the age of 21 so he is soupouse to be under scholarship money that gets put away until later and as soon as u start accepting real cash u become “professional”. Well then u r not to be able to accept anymore scholarship money once u get cash. So y do they make exceptions for just one just so special Kidd and not let anybody else hav that freedom??? Bugges the crapp out of me and a lot of other people and just because he is that good doesn’t mean he should get special exceptions. He needs to choose one or the other!!!
