Weber, who stands second on the PBA's all-time earnings list $3.4 million (at conclusion of '09-'10 season). Weber joins his father, the legendary Dick Weber, as the first father-son pair in the PBA's Hall of Fame. Weber showed Hall of Fame potential from the start as he garnered PBA Rookie of the Year honors in 1980. His first title came in 1982 in Windsor Locks, Conn., and he won his first "major" at the 1987 Tournament of Champions (an event his father never won). He would add another major the next year at the U.S. Open and his win the following year at the PBA National Championship made him one of only four bowlers (Billy Hardwick, Johnny Petraglia, Mike Aulby) to win pro bowling's "Triple Crown." He added his second U.S. Open in 1990 and in 1998 his second PBA National Championship title. His 37 titles ranks him tied for third all-time with Norm Duke. Weber, one of the PBA's more flamboyant performers, was the youngest player (age 26) to earn $1 million in his career when he accomplished the feat in 1989. He also made it to $1 million faster than anyone (10 years). In 1997 he became just the second player to surpass the $2 million mark and trails only Walter Ray Williams Jr. in career earnings. Won record fifth U.S. Open crown in 2012 surpassing his father Dick and Don Carter who won it four times...His win in the 2013 Tournament of Champions made him the first bowler to win the Triple Crown twice and also marked his 10th major tying him for most majors with Earl Anthony...Owns three PBA50 Tour titles including 2013 USBC Senior Masters...Was 2013 PBA50 Rookie of the Year.
