Congrats to Tommy Gollick for recording 47 consecutive strikes at Red Crown Tuesday evening.

Tommy started with a split in frame one and finishing withh 11 strikes in a row for 279. He then went 300, 300, 300 for a total of 1179 for his 4 game set. Truly an amazing accomplishment.

Incredible, wonderful, and kudos, but very believable!

Tony Rovitini after his 900 several years ago threw another 8 or 10 wasn't it?  For a total of 46.

REgards,

PS it is starting to look like the average of these series is picking up to be more than 2 a year!
