Professional Bowler Ryan Ciminelli announced his retirement from full-time competition on Monday. He said that he put 30-years into the game.
According to PBA.com, Ciminelli has earned nearly $700,000 in career earnings from being on the tour since 2007. He has won eight titles in his bowing career on tour.
“To be honest, I’m not sure exactly how I feel, I’m heartbroken that I don’t feel like I can continue in this profession,” Ciminelli said in a Facebook post. “I’m glad because being a Pro Bowler is much more stressful than many thing and I’ll be happy that the curiosity of where my next check is coming from is over. I guess I feel I’ve exhausted all the possibilities to extend my full time career. I’ll take so many things away from this career path… the friends I’ve made, the cool people I got to meet, the accomplishments I was fortunate to gather, the memories of the travel, the high pressure moments, the successes, the failures and all the beautiful places I’ve seen.
“I have been offered a position in my other passion of construction management as a commercial masonry project manager. I’m very excited to explore this new road with a very cool, talented, family owned business called Exterior Expressions that has bases in Georgia, Florida, and the Carolinas. Having said all that, I will have some vacation time immediately so I will get to pick and choose some events I’d still like to bowl and can keep commitments to my teammates in the league, the Luci, and Columbus HP events to name a few. Hopefully, I’m not done winning on tour… I’ll just have less opportunities to do so and that’s okay.”
According to the PBA.com site, he won the 2015 U.S. Open, which is his lone Major win. He has also won in 2019 in Middletown, Delaware; 2016 in Portland, Maine and Aurora, Illinois; 2015 in Xtra Frame South Point Open in Las Vegas and the Viper Championship in Reno.
In addition, he also won the 2012 and 2013 wins at the Chameleon Championship in Las Vegas. Plus, he has two wins in 2010 and 2011 at an event in Dublin, California.
