John Mazza (born February 23, 1964) is a left-handed ten-pin bowler and former touring player for the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA). Mazza won eight titles on the PBA Tour and collected over $850,000 in earnings. He also won 11 PBA Regional titles.
Mazza became a PBA member in 1982, and finally hit his stride in 1991. That season, he won three PBA titles and the Harry Smith PBA Points Leader award, while cashing nearly $150,000 in earnings. Mazza is most notable, however, for being the second player to convert the nearly-impossible 7-10 split on national television. (Mark Roth was the first, and Jess Stayrook accomplished the feat shortly after Mazza.)
In some ABC-TV Professional Bowlers Tour broadcasts during the early- to mid-1990s, Mazza served as a lane-level reporter.
Mazza is currently a resident of Shelby Township, Michigan.
