Barrett's U.S. Open Win Has HOF Implications

England’s Dom Barrett notched another major victory in his career at the U.S. Open last week, but the victory had implications that may last long into the future.

With his win at the U.S. Open, Barrett picked up his second career major title and has now become eligible for election into the PBA Hall of Fame based on titles. He also won the 2013 PBA World Championship.

There’s a catch, however.

Barrett, 33, is not yet eligible in another category that’s required to be elected into the PBA Hall of Fame. He must have 20 years of membership in the PBA, a threshold he won’t pass until at least 2030.

Barrett, who first became a PBA member in 2010, has won seven career titles. And, although he would become eligible in 2030 if he continued to compete, he certainly would not be a lock for the PBA Hall of Fame based on his current credentials.

So, while it’s nice to meet the minimum titles requirement, Barrett will likely still have some work to do over the next 12 or so years to boost his resume.
