CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
Goebel joined the PBA Tour full-time in 1989 when he completed the year with two fourth-place finishes. In 1990, he won his first career title at the PBA Tucson Open. In the 1993 Japan Cup, he nearly rolled a televised perfect game when he defeated Masaaki Saijyo, 299-268. A 10-pin kept Goebel from a $50,000 bonus. He finished in third place.

The next season, Goebel again came close to a perfect game on TV in the 1994 True Value Open. Goebel struck on his first 11 shots in the match. With a sellout crowd pulling for Goebel to strike for a perfect game and a special $200,000 bonus from True Value Hardware, he came up high leaving the 3-6-9-10 for a 296-280 victory (Norm Duke's 280 is still the highest losing score ever rolled on television). Wih three more titles in 1994, Goebel finished third on the Tour in earnings and was chosen a First Team All-American by Bowling Magazine.

Goebel won his 10th career title at Medford, OR, in 2003 just weeks after coming back from a brief decision to retire. With that title, Goebel met the requirements for PBA Hall of Fame eligibility after he retires.

The highlight of Goebel's career came in 1998 when he captured the Brunswick World Tournament of Champions, his lone career major victory. The tournament was contested at Incred-a-Bowl in Overland Park, KS -- just minutes from his home.

PERSONAL FACTS:
Goebel earned his B.A. in English in 1985 from the University of Kansas. His college coach was PBA Senior Tour star Bob Glass. Goebel is married and has one child.
