The International Art of Bowling decided to present our very first Award of Awesomeness to Josh Hyde.
Who is Josh Hyde?
Josh has been involved in bowling for 30 years. His dad was a regional pro bowler. In 1987 Josh attended his very first PBA event and that’s where he fell in love with the sport. Just a year earlier, Josh had met Mike Aulby and Earl Anthony. He spent much of his childhood traveling to the PBA tour stops between 2 hours and 13 hours from his home. Throughout his journeys to PBA events, he developed a passion for the history of the PBA. He wanted to create a bowling newsletter to promote the PBA. His favorite bowlers are Parker Bohn III and Mike Aulby.
Josh does all his research for his newsletter on pba.com, through old PBA media guides, and on Youtube. He considers himself the encyclopedia of the PBA. His future goals include: promoting bowling in general as well as professional bowling, and to get into the PBA Hall of Fame.
Congratulations, Josh, on this well deserved honor! Bowling is lucky to have you!
