North Carolina man rolls first PBA 900 series

THE VILLAGES, Fla. — A North Carolina man has rolled the first 900 series in Professional Bowlers Association history — three straight perfect games.

Joe Scarborough of Charlotte opened the first round of qualifying in the PBA50 Sun Bowl on Sunday with three games of 300, throwing 36 consecutive strikes.

Scarborough is a 50-year-old self-employed electrical contractor who was competing in his second event in the renamed PBA Senior Tour.

The PBA said Monday that Norm Duke bowled three consecutive 300s in a standard PBA Tour event in 1996, but the performance didn’t count as a 900 series because he ended one round with two perfect games and started the next round with the third.

Scarborough says he was “pretty surprised.” He insists he wasn’t nervous. Instead, he pretended he was at home practicing.
