I have been bowling since I could walk. My dad was the secretary of the youth league at Brunswick Zone XL and was a manager there as well. Any time I had the opportunity to get to go to the bowling center I would take it. My dad obviously had some benefits being the manager at the bowling center, so I would just sit there for hours bowling as many games as I could. My brother and I discovered the Junior Bowlers Tour (JBT) about a  year ago. We have only bowled in around 15 different JBT tournaments, Chris (My Brother) had made the cut in one of the normal tournaments and lost in the first round. One of the 15 tournaments was a Major(Desert Open), this was the first time I had ever made the cut in any JBT tournament and I qualified 3rd after 15 games, and swept through match play without losing a game.

Get To Know Hunter Mayes

1. Favorite thing to do outside of bowling and why ?
My whole life basically revolves around bowling but, one of my most favorite things to do outside of bowling, other than the obvious playing video games, has got to be going fishing and being outside. Spending time with friends and family while fishing, nothing is better.
2. Favorite movie of all time and why?
Happy Gilmore, whenever you watch it over and again you always find something you missed the other 20 times you watched it.
3. Favorite bowling ball of all time and why?
Without a doubt, my favorite ball of all time has got to be my purple hammer or any urethane ball for that matter. Urethane just gives me a good look on anything I am bowling on.
4. Sports fan, favorite teams and why ?
Personally, I don't really like too many other sports other than bowling. I could watch bowling on TV for hours and I can barely sit through one quarter of a football game. I think the reason why I really only like bowling is because I am a very focused person and am very determined.
5. Your favorite thing about your job at Virtue and why?
My favorite part about working at Virtue is meeting new people and helping people find success within bowling. Just by meeting new people I am getting connections and overall that will lead to helping more people.
6. If you had to describe personality in one word, what would it be?
