Balance Holes
Beginning August 1, 2020, the use of a balance hole is prohibited. The rule states all holes in a bowling ball must be used on every delivery; any hole not used is considered a balance hole, making the ball illegal. Bowlers who do not use their thumb no longer can have a thumb hole, as it now is considered a balance hole. They also need to mark their ball to show where they place their palm on delivery.
 
W-9 Forms
IRS is requiring that we get new W-9 forms for all bowlers who earn winnings in PBA events.  If this is your first tournament of 2020 where you have cashed, you will be required to complete a W-9 form prior to receiving any prize money.  This requirement pertains to all participants, whether you are a member or not.
