Roto Grip Locks In Prather Through 2021

Shortly after locking in Kyle Troup to a contract extension, Storm confirmed to FloBowling that Kris Prather has also extended his deal with the company for another two years through 2021.

Prather, who represents the Roto Grip brand for Storm, has had a break-out season in 2019. His earnings of $179,348 in 2019 are more than he earned his first four years on tour ($112,135) combined.

“After the successful season I’ve had so far this year, we were both in agreement that we wanted to prolong the working relationship,” Prather told FloBowling. “I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. They’ve been so good to me that I wanted to talk to Gary (Hulsenberg, Storm’s Vice President of Business Development) about extending my contract and signing a new deal before the start of the 2020 season, and he was on the same page. It was a pretty easy deal to get done.”

Prather won his first career title at the PBA Scorpion Championship during the 2019 World Series of Bowling.

A few months later, he won of the biggest events of the entire season – the PBA Playoffs. Despite not counting as a title, the event awarded him his biggest career payday of $100,000.

Last season, Prather made six championship round appearances but was unable to pick up a win. He was one of the most consistent bowlers on tour and ended the 2018 season with three third-place finishes and a fifth-place finish in the last four events.
