Lisa also uses Vise grips and the Vise "IT" interchangeable thumb system. Her versatile game and excellent spare shooting has helped her maintain her elite status over the years.

Scott Stolz is a current amateur staffer for Roto Grip products. He can also use Storm products when needed. Scott has recently converted from sliding on his right foot to his left. He is a right handed bowler with a 320 rev rate, a 12 degree axis tilt and a 45 degree axis rotation. His benchmark balls will use a 60x40 dual angle drilling layout. He also uses pin distances between 2" and 6" to help change the motion shape on various lane conditions.

 

Rob Lange is currently on staff with Motiv products of Muskegon, Michigan. Rob has been with Motiv for a few years and has won numerous tournaments since. He is averaging his highest ever this season at 234 in a league at Fox Run lanes of Waukesha. Rob loves drillings with 40-70 degree drill angles with Val angles between 30 and 70 degrees. His has had great success with balls like the QZ-1, the Sigma Tour, the Raptor series and the newly released Primal Impulse. Rob is an extremely accurate player and is a shot maker to be sure. He uses his 320 rev rate, a 10 degree tilt and 45 degree axis rotation to get the job done. He has been happily married to Marty for over 25 years.

 

Mike Jamrose is honored to be on Brunswick's amateur staff since 2013. His is an extremely talented lefty who has owned the Tri City association for over a decade. Here he has won over twenty association titles. He bowls with Ron Vokes (ABC all events champion in 2009 with 2321) and Henry Teetz a member of the vaulted Horsemen! Mike has a 360 rev rate with a 10 degree tilt and 30 degree axis rotation. His favorite Brunswick balls are the Versa Max and Diva. Mike loves tame drillings which reduce flare and keep his powerful hook under control. He is currently single and available (hint hint to the ladies).

Nick Sanicola is Lord Field's newest proud staffer.

Ron Vokes is proud to be called a Brunswick staff player. Ron has the highest right handed all-time all events score at the USBC Open championships, a 2358 nine game total. Ron is also a proud Tri City and Milwaukee Hall of Fame member. He joins Joe Cerar jr, Dennis Joerres and Kurt Preston in the Tri City Hall of Fame. Ron also has dozens of city and state titles to his credit. 

Andrew Schneider is now a Lord Field staff player joining Nick Sanicola.
