Hi guys. It's been a while since I have posted. I hope you are all doing well. I have not picked up a bowling ball in a couple years. I have been online even less. It started with a knee injury, and then re-focusing on work, and saving for retirement. I still hope to make a return to recreational bowling someday in the future.
In the meantime, I caught the news that a 16-year old won $3 million in a Fortnite championship. It occurred to me that one win would be enough to place him in the top 5 PBA CAREER earnings. Second place in the same Fortnite competition earned $2 million, which would place the player in the top 10 PBA CAREER earnings. Together, first and second place alone are equivalent to the entire $5 million USBC Open Championship prize fund. By comparison, the total Fortnite prize fund was $40 million.
If I understand correctly, Fortnite has only been around a couple years. The world has certainly changed. Bowling sadly, not so much. It's still better to bowl for fun, than for money.
PBA (2014-2015): $850
Heavy: Nano, HyperCell, Eternal Cell
Medium: IQ Tour, Tour SiC, Tag
