Sean Rash

Sean Rash (born August 22, 1982) is a right-handed ten-pin bowler from Anchorage, AK, and is considered one of the brightest young players on the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour. He now resides in Montgomery, Illinois with his wife Sara.

Rash joined the PBA in 2005. He holds the distinction of being the first PBA player to ever win a title when starting from the Tour Qualifying Round (TQR), which he accomplished in his rookie season at the 2006 West Virginia Championship (see PBA Bowling Tour: 2005-06 season). He won his first PBA major title at the 2007 USBC Masters in Milwaukee, WI. The win gave Rash four titles in his first four television appearances, and seven straight match wins on TV to open his career (one short of the record eight wins set by George Branham III). The streak ended when Rash lost to Norm Duke in the semi-final match of the 2008-09 season-opening PBA World Championship. Rash won the 2012 PBA Tournament of Champions for his first championship in five years, and second major title overall. Qualifying as the #1 seed, Rash beat Ryan Ciminelli in the final match 239-205.

Rash led the 2012 PBA Tour in average, earnings and points. On May 28, 2012, the PBA announced that Rash had won the 2012 Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year award in an extremely close vote (Rash received 29% of the vote to Jason Belmonte's 26.6%).

Sean won his sixth PBA Tour title on March 17, 2013 in the WBT Kuwait Open.

Sean has won $625,035 in his young PBA career. He has accumulated 11 perfect 300 games in PBA events through the 2011-12 season.
