PBA Hall of Famer and 19-time PBA Tour champion Chris Barnes has extended his agreement with 900 Global for another year. It will be Barnes’ sixth season with the company.

A three-time major champion, Barnes, 49, won his most recent title at the 2018 Lubbock Sports Open. He made one championship round appearance in 2019 when he finished fourth at the DHC PBA Invitational.

“I never really had any thought about going elsewhere,” Barnes told FloBowling. “Being as involved as I am at Global, the company is a great fit. Building on the giant success of the Badger line, I am excited to be a part of the fastest growing brand in bowling.”

Barnes finished the 2019 season ranked 18th in earnings with $58,977 and had some of his strongest performances of the season in majors.

He finished in sixth place at the PBA Players Championship, narrowly missing the show by 33 pins. At the U.S. Open, he finished in seventh place and was just 40 pins off the show. He also finished 12th at the PBA World Championship.

In his career, Barnes has won nearly $2.5 million in prize money on the PBA Tour and was named the PBA Player of the Year for the 2007-08 season. He was the PBA Rookie of the Year in 1998.
