First Answer:
The bowling alley for starters

Second Answer:
To become a pro bowler, the first thing you need to do is get very good, because it is difficult to get and keep a Pro Card. You should go to the bowling alley often and taking lessons from a local pro, or a bowler with a lot of experience (especially in teaching) would be highly beneficial. Read as much as you can on technique.

To get a PBA (Professional Bowlers Association) card, you must either carry a 200+ average for 36 games in the most recent sanctioned league, or carry a 190+ average in a USBC (United States Bowling Congress) sanctioned Sports Bowling League. You can contact the USBC for leagues near you that carry this PBA pattern. Then you can apply to get a PBA card. See links below for more information.

You can live anywhere. I have lived all over the country and have known professional bowlers (PBA, WPBA, and regional pros) in many cities. It definitely helps to live in an area where bowling is a popular sport--you're more likely to find the coaching and competition necessary to raise your game to the professional level.

I currently live in an area not necessary known as a hotbed of bowling, but there is a touring pro who lives only 7 miles from me.
