With 6 PBA National title victories spanning 3 decades, Lake Havasu native Butch Soper became known as one of the best "Journeymen" pros in the history of the sport. With his last title coming at the age of 46 in the stunning Major victory at the 1996 PBA National, Soper proved age is only a number when you have the heart of a champion.

Bowling Evolved sits down with the Havasu Hero to talk about his career, his view on his favorite bowlers to watch and his pending return to the world of competitive bowling at the age of 67 years old.

I was just thinking about Butchy the other day!

Shoots 300 at 44 and wins the PBA National 2 years later...must have had a fun career!

Butch is definitely one of Arizona's finest. I met him a few years ago at the State Tournament, and he was a real gentleman. He was bowling on a pair of lanes next to me and we chatted quite a bit, and he acted genuinely impressed with my 700 team set. Nice guy and great bowler.

Speaking of Butch, I posted a telecast featuring him defeating Marc McDowell in the championship match at the 1990 Kessler Open contested at Earl Anthony's Dublin Bowl.

I watched the video on my computer and had no problem hearing.  I use a home desk top computer.  I thought the guy interviewing was a little off but at least he did a bowling video.
