Weber, who will begin his 34th season as a PBA Tour competitor when PBA World Series of Bowling IV gets underway Nov. 2-11 in Las Vegas, is expected to make his debut on the newly-renamed PBA50 Tour (formerly PBA Senior Tour) in the spring of 2013. Next year’s PBA50 Tour schedule will be announced later in the fall.
Weber, the winner of 35 PBA Tour titles (fourth on the all-time list) and a record 47 PBA Regional titles, is the only player in history to win five U.S. Open titles. He has bowled in 726 PBA Tour tournaments in a career that began at age 17 in 1979 – when he became the youngest player ever to win a PBA Regional title (St. Louis, 1979). He also is the youngest United States Bowling Congress member to bowl a 300 game in his first game as a certified adult league bowler, a feat he accomplished at age 15 in St. Louis.
