Patterson was low man with 736 when the St. Louis Budweisers bowled the record 3,858 series in 1958. Earlier, he was a member of the Ziern Antiques, a great St. Louis team that included Tom Hennessey, Ray Bluth and Don Carter at the beginning of their careers. Patterson was a member of the Budweiser team when it was organized and succeeded Whitey Harris as captain, continuing in that role when the team later became Don Carter Gloves. The team, under the two names, won six BPAA team championships, and Carter Gloves captured the Classic team title at the 1962 USBC Open Championships.
