BRIGHAM CITY, Utah – Randy Pedersen has more than 40 years of experience in the bowling industry and he’s celebrating a monumental anniversary with Storm Products in 2020.

Pedersen was officially invited to represent Storm Products as a full-time touring player in 2001 and quickly found success with the equipment. In 2002, he earned his first title on national television as a member of Team Storm with the X-Factor and from there the relationship continued to flourish. Pedersen continued to represent Storm on the lanes throughout his career. When he decided to stop bowling full-time, he was able to continue to represent the company in appearances at Storm sponsored events around the world as a member of the PR Team.

“Being with Storm for 20 years has been an incredible run and I feel blessed to be part of the family,” Pedersen said. “After my bowling career ended on the lanes, they still saw value in me which is an incredible honor. The management at Storm cares about their people. The loyalty that they show to those who stay loyal to them is invaluable. Storm is the most loyal company I’ve ever been part of.”

Pedersen has 13 career Professional Bowling Association (PBA) Tour titles including a PBA Major title at the 1987 PBA National Championship. In 2002, he earned the Pepsi Open which pushed his career earnings over the $1 million-dollar mark, making him the 24th millionaire in PBA history. Pedersen was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame in 2011. In 2013, he joined the PBA50 Tour where he won the first event he competed in, the PBA50 Dayton Classic. Pedersen currently serves as a color analyst for Fox Sports on broadcasts of the PBA Tour and as he begins his 20th season, he possesses the second longest tenure for sport, only two years behind Nelson Burton Jr.

“Randy makes bowling a better place,” Dave Symes, President of Storm Bowling, said. “I appreciate what he’s done and continues to do for bowling. He’s a lot of fun to be around and the fans really like him. I think he brings a lot of positive feelings and goodwill to the bowling industry as a whole. I’ve really enjoyed working with Randy and look forward to continuing our relationship with him into the next decade.”

The new decade has marked many changes within the bowling industry and Pedersen is excited about the opportunities ahead for the PBA Tour and the entire sport.

“It’s a really good dynamic for the PBA Tour, that a bowling cooperation now owns the PBA,” Pedersen said. “There’s endless possibilities and they bring a lot to the table. We’ve already seen changes with prize funds, and I think the bowlers will continue to bowl for more money. I hope and pray we can get an expanded tour. I think it’s a pretty exciting time and they’re going to do a lot of really big things for the PBA Tour.”

As Pedersen continues to look forward, he also enjoys reflecting on where he’s been throughout his career. He joined the PBA Tour in 1981 and is nearing his 40th year of membership and his involvement within the sport.

“I feel very fortunate, blessed, and lucky to continue to be involved in television and be part of the Storm Family,” Pedersen said.
