The brand has selected Doug Kent, Tony Reyes and John May for Hammer’s 06-07
Tour staff, announced Brian Graham, Hammer brand manager.
"Hammer fans are in for a great ride this season from Doug, Tony and
John," said Graham. "With almost 40 years of PBA experience, these
Hammerheads are going to bring tremendous exposure to our brand and our
equipment, not to mention their wallets as they cash in each and every
"Doug’s an unbelievable leader with performance capabilities that
others envy. Tony has a spark that is unmatched by any of his
competitors. John’s has been a loyal member of Hammer’s regional staff
and certainly plans to make an impression on the pro Tour. We’ve
gathered an excellent team and we’re expecting great things."
