If you have never met a professional bowler before, they tend to be very busy. From one tournament to another, autograph signing and pro-am, to hours of practice... Bowlers live a tough lifestyle for the opportunity to win on the highest stage. On June 30th, Rotterdam native Liz Kuhlkin joined the prestigious group known as major champions. She didn't have much time to celebrate as she signed autographs for over an hour and then had to catch a plane to Texas for team USA camp.

Kuhlkin, 24 year old graduate of Schalmont High School and the University of Nebraska, knows her roots and gave praise to her parents as she finished off the victory.

"Thank you Mom and Dad for everything that you've done for me"

Kuhlkin joined Brian Mariano to talk about her victory, her family and so much more.
