Last Sunday, Kelly Kulick beat Chris Barnes at the Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas to become the first woman bowler to win a PBA Tour title. There is no professional bowling league for women (the PWBA folded in 2003), although the PBA does have a Women's Series that consists of eight events. In 2006, Kulick became the first woman to get an exemption to compete in the PBA Tour.
Congratulations are definitely in order!
- Sports Illustrated: "Kulick wins men's bowling major; can she revive women's league?"
- Boston Globe: "Bowling’s first lady is on a roll."
- NY Daily News: "Women's rights finds a kingpin in Kelly Kulick, first woman to capture a PBA title."
