In September 2009 she won the PBA Women's World Championship, and in November she won the PBA Women's Series Shark Championship. In January, she became the first woman bowler to win a PBA Tour title when she beat Chris Barnes in the title match at the Tournament of Champions, a major on the tour.
In March, Kulick won the Canon Malaysian International Open and then captured two major women's tournaments - the United States Bowling Congress Queens in April and the U.S. Women's Open in May. Both were her second career championships in each event, and she became the first person to capture both in the same year.
Kulick, 33, was selected to Team USA and will represent the United States at the Pan American Bowling Confederation Women's Championships in September. She currently is ranked as the No.1 female bowler by the PBA.
