Congrats,Tommy great bowling.What a thrill it must have been.

During a December 1993 tournament, Troy Ockerman, Owosso, Mich., blasted four 300 games - all on the same day. Three of those games, covering two different events, were consecutive. His string of at least 36 in-a-row ties him for the men's record for the most consecutive strikes.

Also sharing the 36 in-a-row record is professional bowler Norm Duke. During an April 1996 PBA tournament held in North Brunswick, N.J. Duke had three consecutive perfect games. His effort was over the course of two squads and not in a single series.

Others who have made strike history include:

With a string of 40 in-a-row, LPBT champion Jeanne Naccarato, Tacoma Wash, is recognized as the most prolific stringer of strikes in history. She had 33 consecutive strikes in an 864 series, then started off her next game with seven more. Wow!

In 1989, Tom Jordan of Paterson, NJ, slammed 46 of a possible 48 strikes while establishing ABC records for a four game series with 1,198 and for three games with 899. Jordan twice had strings of 23 in-a-row in bowling 300-299-300-299.
