Richter said he’s self-taught, and he loves the pressure of a big moment.

“[There’s a] lot of emotions when you’re bowling, especially in tournaments,” Richter said. “It gets really stressful because you want to do really well. When you’re not, it’s really hard to get mentally into it. You got to control your emotions, and when you get upset, you just have to ignore it. You just need to focus on what you’re doing now and how you can better yourself.”
