Marshall Holman

NNDB Person from United States of America

Marshall Holman (born September 29, 1954 in Medford, Oregon) is a American professional bowler primarily known for his flamboyant success on the PBA Tour throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Nike sponsored Holman. Holman also served as a color analyst alongside Mike Durbin on several ESPN and ESPN2 bowling telecasts from 1996–2001. From 1998-99, he worked for CBS Sports and was teamed with Gary Seibel for telecasts when that network briefly showed PBA events. Holman's last PBA title came in 1996 at the PBA Ebonite Classic. This came eight years after he had last won a title. In this event, he defeated Wayne Webb in what turned out to be a very emotional battle that came down to the final frames. The first bowler on the PBA to surpass $1.5 million in earnings, Holman won 22 titles (11th all-time) -- including two U.S. Opens and two Tournament of Champions titles. He was the youngest-ever winner in the Tournament of Champions, topping the field in the 1976 event when he was just 21 years old. He was named PBA Player of the Year in 1987, was a three-time winner of the George Young High Average award, and has earned nearly $1.7 million on tour. Holman was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame  ( Wikipedia article )
