HAMMER TAKES FIRST NATIONAL TOUR VICTORY
HOPKINSVILLE, Kent. Hammer staffer Patrick Allen knows how to make a tough shot. In fact, he perfected his moves at the PBA Greater Philadelphia Open finals, Sunday, November 16th. After converting a difficult 2-4-7-10 split, Allen went on to beat Danny Wiseman, 200-178, in the final game and laid claim to Hammer Bowling’s first men’s national tour victory.
“There’s no doubt that Hammer’s securing a permanent spot on the men’s tour and we’ve got talent like Patrick leading the charge,” said Hammer product manager Ed Gallagher.
Allen, a native of Tarrytown, NY, joined the PBA tour in 1999, but has made bowling his career since he turned 17. His hard-core New-Yorker attitude is clearly evident on the lanes… you don’t want to be the brunt of his brash, trash-talking game. And, that attitude is what appealed to the Hammer brand when they pursued him for a contract in September 2002.
Patrick’s aggressive personality embodies the spirit of the Hammer brand… It’s take no prisoners, never look back and don’t trip over my trophies on your way to second place, added Gallagher. Why wouldn’t we want a power player like Patrick on our team? Perhaps, the more important question is, why aren’t you a Hammerhead?
The win secures Allen a spot in this season’s PBA Dexter Tournament of Champions in December. For more information on Allen and Hammer Bowling’s staff visit http://www.hammerbowling.com.
