Today we received confirmation that there will be another famous bowler in the Ballmaster Open, when Parker Bohn III sent final confirmation about his arrival to Finland in the beginning of January. Bohn III has bowled on PBA Tour since 1985 and he has made there a very successful career that still continues.

I expect the weather to be sunny and very warm… On a more serious note, to have a good performance in the event and meet many nice people” he continued with smile.
