Kamron Doyle

Kamron Doyle won Rookie of the Year honors easily over Thailand’s Annop Arromsaranon, the only first-year PBA member to win a title (the PBA-World Bowling Tour Busan Cup in South Korea). Doyle cashed in seven of the 15 events he entered, and had a personal-best third-place finish in the Xtra Frame Gene Carter’s Pro Shop Classic in Middletown, Del.

Doyle’s arrival into the PBA Tour ranks has been highly-anticipated since 2010 when he became the youngest bowler ever to cash in a PBA Regional tournament at the age of 12, followed by becoming the youngest bowler ever to cash in the U.S. Open two years later as a 5-foot-5, 105-pound, 14-year-old eighth grader.

*The 2002 awards where based on the 2001-02 season, marking a transition from calendar-year to seasonal.
