Tyler Bockholdt's Cornhole Biography

I am ACL Pro Tyler Bockholdt from the Great Lakes Conference and this is my story of how I became a professional cornhole player for the American Cornhole League. When I was 18 years old I met Vince Pacione through friends of friends in high school. I overheard someone talking about playing bags over the weekend and stopped and asked where because I love to play in my backyard. Alspa told me about a weekly blind draw (totally foreign to me at the time) that happened every Monday night just 20 minutes from my house. This was not an ACL event, rather one sided bags and bouncy boards but it was all I knew! Later when I saw all the talent at this bar, I found out that a lot of these players played nationally and at other establishments almost every day of the week!
This is when I met Vince Pacione at the bar called Katie O’Connor’s (presently called Backroads). Winter came and I didn’t play for a couple months but got a text message from Vince that there is an indoor event that he’s starting and he wanted to see me there! I went for the first time on _______ and it wasn’t until then out about double sided bags and what the ACL was. I bought a set of bags from Rob Bev, he sold me Reynolds Pro Edge Speeds for $20 as a gift for being an aspiring newbie in the game.
Finally found myself playing weekly and then traveling a little more to other blind draws over the week. When I got my own set of boards I wouldn’t stop practicing until the street lights came on and I was ready for my first regional.
Since then it’s been about a year, moved from competitive (for only 2 regionals) to advanced ever since, playing against some of the best in the Chicagoland area.
