Chuck on the Truck

Chuck Gardner

Hi, I’m Chuck Gardner, PBA Pro Tour Rep for Brunswick Bowling. I’ve been involved with bowling for more than 25 years as a professional bowler, coach, bowling center owner, pro shop operator, and on, and on, and on. As the Brunswick PBA Tour Rep, I coach our pro staff on their physical game and help with bowling equipment for use during professional events.

I enjoy helping people of all skill levels improve their game. In my blog, “Chuck on the Truck,” I’ll give you the inside scoop as to what’s going on behind the scenes on the PBA Tour. I’ll be at every stop, on the PBA Tour truck, working with Brunswick Pros, such as Sean Rash, Brad Angelo, and Parker Bohn. So tune in to get the latest scoop. 

If you make your way to a PBA event, stop by the truck and say hi…otherwise you may catch me bowling on the PBA senior tour. Good Bowling and remember, The lane of life is long . . . Make it a striking “XXX” experience!

    Dick Weber Playoffs - Day 3

    The first round of elimination is over and the Brunswick team did a very good job.

    Parker was in great position and had a very solid chance to make the cut into the next round. He needed the first one in the tenth to shut the rest of the guys, but he left a solid seven and gave them a chance. Randy Weiss threw a double in the tenth to knock Parker out.

    Dick Weber Playoffs - Day 2

    Today was a huge roller coaster. The first disaster was Chris Loschetter, who was above the cut line by 50 pins or so going into the last game this morning. He had to bowl on lanes 13 and 14 the last game and they are just not good at all. But he bowled really well going in, and started with a couple very solid shots, strike-ring-10, strike. Down at the other end of the pod PJ Haggerty was off to a good start. PJ bowled a 269 and Chris missed the cut. But the rest of the Brunswick guys made it in.

    Dick Weber Playoffs - Day 1

    It’s day one of the Dick Weber Play Offs here in Indy.

    Parker is already up this morning, getting in some early practice.

    Yesterday was the practice session and the lanes were high scoring. Who knows what today brings? This tournament will resemble the World Series Of Poker. Each pod will work as a table and the goal is to advance through your POD. Check out the PBA website for complete details.
