Over the course of a year, some successful bowlers may generate close to $250,000. However, it is only the best bowlers who achieve this much in earnings. The salaries for professional bowlers vary greatly by both the year and the individual bowler.
Most of a professional bowler’s income comes from tournament winnings. However, some bowlers do make money from endorsement deals. The bowlers who generate higher incomes usually participate in at least 20 to 30 tournaments per calendar year. By contrast, many who are on the professional tour fail to generate more than a few hundred dollars each year.
