Sean Rash

Love Him or Hate Him, He's One of the Best

By

Sean Rash is one of the most polarizing figures on the PBA Tour, simply because fans either love him or hate him. His competitive nature and clear desire to win are undeniable, and that resonates well with some fans and not so well with others. Regardless, he's one of the top bowlers on the PBA Tour, and he has the 2011-2012 PBA Player of the Year Award to prove it.

After a brisk start to a career in which he racked up a lot of titles quickly, he went into a five-year winless streak that finally ended with his victory in the 2012 Tournament of Champions. Rash is a legitimate contender in every tournament he enters.
