Gary Faulkner, Jr., Grahan Fach, Jakob Butturff, Jesper Svenson, Kenneth Ryan, Keven Williams,
Matt Russo, Matt Sanders, Matthew McNeil, Michael Martell, Mykel Holliman, Parker Bohn III,
Patrick Hanrahan, Rhino Page, Ryan Ciminelli, and Wesley Low, Jr.

These guys are not just active, they are winning fairly regularly with a total of
96 career wins between them, including 42 by Parker Bohn,
19 by Jakob Butturff, 11 by Ryan Ciminelli, 9 by Jesper Svenson, and 6 by Rhino Page

Many Lefthanded Bowlers rank among the best professional bowlers of all time,

but there have not been as many lefthanded bowlers, amateur or professional, as one might expect.

Why aren't there more lefthanded bowlers?
