86.9 Seconds: Man Sets Record For Fastest Perfect Game Of Bowling

April 25, 2017


This is a video of 23-year old golfer bowler Ben Ketola rolling a perfect 300 game in 86.9 seconds, using ten lanes (he runs back to the first two lanes for his two bonus balls from the tenth frame although I would have used two closer lanes to save time but that's just me and I'm a born competitor). Not bad, Ben, I bet the Big Lebowski would be impressed. I also bet he hasn't seen this, because he doesn't seem like much of an internet person. Don't worry though, I'll show it to him on my phone if I run into him. "Oh thank God." I know, I could tell you were worried, that's why I'm doing this for you.

Keep going for the video while I call my local bowling alley to find out when they do cosmic bowling with lane bumpers. Also: note how Ben rolls the ball using both hands at once.

Thanks to Tony, who agrees the best thing about bowling, besides getting to throw heavy balls as hard as you can, is the snack bar and arcade.

    10 lanes? The only record he set was starting 10 games of Ten Pin Bowling the quickest...

    Awwww, alley balls!

    Rancho Relaxo time!

  • Kaizer Chief

    Hey, you ever bowled 301?

  • Draco Basileus

    Probably would have shaved off a few tenths of second if he hadn't paused to fist pump after the 4th frame.

  • GeneralDisorder

    He could have used four lanes instead of ten which would have reduced the number of steps.

    I was thinking that if he really wanted to knock a lot of time off, then he could just move ahead without waiting to see if he got a strike. That's about the only real improvement for time that I could see. That'll be the next video, probably.

    That and he could have just run back two lanes instead of back to the first lane.

    86.9 is my bowling average.

    (Almost 1) is my love life average.

    Hey! Me, too!

    69 is my sex... I dunno, this joke didn't pan out.
