Omaha Bowler Erin McCarthy Finds Perspective, Captures U.S. Open

Published: July 6, 2022

Erin McCarthy is spending time off from her job as an acute care nurse to bowl a few frames at Western Bowl.

But then again bowling is work, too. Since 2015 Erin has been climbing ladders on the Professional Women’s Bowlers Association tour.

And on June 21, just shy of her 32nd birthday, Erin claimed the second title of her pro career, a major, the 2022 U.S. Open in South Glens Falls, New York.

“I don’t think you can ever prepare yourself for winning a major title,” she said. “You know it’s always in your thoughts and as a little kid you dream about it but to actually secure the victory and to know that you’re part of an elite group, there are no words to describe it. I still think it probably won’t sink in for a long time to come.”
