Kulick downs CDB

by Bob Johnson 0

Carolyn Dorin-Ballard's winning streak in the stepladder finals of the U.S. Women's Open was stopped at two games as she ran into a Bowling Winning Machine named Kelly Kulick.
Kulick, who already has won the PBA Tournament of Champions and USBC Queens this year, now is one match away from nabbing a third 2010 major after defeating Dorin-Ballard, 201-176.
The championship match promises to be exciting as Kulick will be taking on very formidable foe — Liz Johnson.
First place is worth $20,000, and ESPN2 is airing the championship round now.

He began at age 16 as a staff writer and then assistant editor for the weekly Pacific Bowler newspaper in his native California, and within three years was writing feature stories for Bowlers Journal. He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
