Ryan Shafer Joins Ebonite Pro Staff
HOPKINSVILLE, KY – Ebonite is proud to welcome back four-time PBA tour champion Ryan Shafer to its prostaff family.
Shafer, who resides in Horseheads, NY, was named PBA Rookie of the Year in 1987 before claiming his first tour title at the 2000 Orleans Casino Open in Las Vegas . His second title followed later that year at the PBA Wichita Open and he went on to finish the year with a career-high 11 championship round appearances. His most recent title was the 2003 Empire State Open.
“I had my best year ever using Ebonite in 2000, winning 2 titles, making 11 shows and being runner up for player of the year,” Shafer said. “I made my first show in 1986 using an Ebonite Firebolt. In many ways, I am back where I belong.”
Shafer joins fellow Ebonite prostaff members Tommy Jones, Amleto Monacelli and Dino Castillo.
