Lindemann became active in bowling after moving to Detroit in 1942 and soon developed enough talent to join some of the strongest teams in that city. He became a member of the Strohs in 1950 and succeeded Buzz Fazio, also a PBA Hall of Famer, as captain of that crew in 1957. He was a double winner in the 1951 USBC Open Championships with a Team All-Events title while also winning individual all-events. Lindemann also won the BPAA National Doubles in 1951, 1952 and 1954 with Fazio and won the team championship with Strohs in 1952, 1953 and 1954.
