Dannial Cohen with Striking Results Atlanta.  He has drilled for FSU bowling team and Brian Voss in the past and currently has almost 20 pro shops.  I know he was close to Mo Pinel and believe he was offered a spot on the PBA truck as well.  He has taught me most of what I know and do not trust anyone else with my game.

Rod Ross, where ever he is now.

He was before he was hired by USBC. He and Theresa owned both Manteca bowl pro shop and the one in Pacifica

From his Facebook, it looks like he might be retired and RVing around the country.  I've messaged him on Facebook though.

If you need something a lot faster, Mal Cowen at West Valley Bowl in Tracy is highly recommended by many people.

Probably retired by now but Bruce Heim was the best I ever had.  Also Brandon McGinnis ( Spokane) is right there too but I am too far over the hill to take full advantage of his skill.
