Rash won his 15th title in the 2020 PBA Oklahoma Open, maintaining his status as one of the top bowlers on Tour after winning twice in 2019.
The 2006 PBA West Virginia Championship was Rash’s first title. Rash won the title in his first four televised finals appearances, matching Hugh Miller’s record. With seven consecutive TV match wins to start his career, Rash fell just one win short of tying George Branham III’s record of eight.
By rolling 300 games in the 2014 Wolf Open (which he went on to win) and the 2015 Tournament of Champions, Rash became the first and thus far only player in PBA history to roll two televised perfect games in title events. Wes Malott and Ryan Shafer have each rolled two televised perfect games, but Malott’s were both in exhibition events and Shafer rolled one in a title event and another in an exhibition.
Rash’s first major championship came in Miller Park in Milwaukee at the 2007 USBC Masters. This was Rash’s fourth TV appearance and fourth win.
Rash capped the 2011-2012 season with a win in the PBA Tournament of Champions for his second career major title. Rash was voted 2011-2012 PBA Player of the Year.
