"It sounds like thunder when he's down there": "In professional bowling, that corner of the sports landscape where gray-haired and balding athletes can thrive, Kamron Doyle presents something different. He is 14 and he is winning prize money against the best bowlers in the world. Sipping a blue sports drink and eating a Milky Way candy bar for breakfast Friday morning, Doyle, a 5-foot-5, 105-pound eighth grader, prepared for the next round of the United States Open, an event with nearly 400 competitors and a top prize of $60,000. In advancing this far he had already become the youngest bowler to reach the prize-money level in a Professional Bowlers Association national tour event. 'We have no idea where he gets it,' said Sean Doyle, Kamron's father, an orthodontist who seldom bowls. Some family basements roar with the blare of a teen's loud music. In the Doyles' house in Brentwood, Tenn., the noise comes from Kamron's bowling. The family built two lanes in the basement in November. 'It sounds like thunder when he's down there,' Sean Doyle said." [NY Times]
