If you're truly an elite bowler, you already know the importance of testing your game on challenging lane conditions. As such, you've probably had your share of experience battling all manner of USBC Sport Bowling lane patterns, PBA Experience conditions included. So, what challenges remain? How about actually shoeing up against the pros?

That's right; thanks to USBC, the Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour and the PBA Regional Tour, there are several high-level events at your disposal throughout the year.

Don't feel like traveling very far? That's ok; sign up for a PBA Regional Tour tournament in your area. Have your sights set on something bigger? Great! Register to be a part of the USBC Masters, U.S. Open or a Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour open-field event or Tour Qualifying Round. These events will give you the opportunity to test your mettle against extremely demanding lane conditions and a truly elite field of competitors.

If you are going to be the best, you've got to beat the best, so get out there and show the world what you've got.
