N.C. Bowler Rolls First PBA 900 A Perfect Storm


T


he 2013 PBA50 Sun Bowl provided a perfect storm of sorts. The second stop on the renamed senior tour, staged at Spanish Springs Lanes at The Villages in cen-


tral Florida, produced a piggish 20 300 games, but no one en- joyed more perfection than Joe Scarborough.


//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Scarborough, a 50-year-old electrical


contractor from Charlotte, N.C., posted a trio of 300s. In fact, he rolled all three consecutively in the event’s opening block to become the fi rst bowler in PBA history to post a 900 series. “It’s unbelievable,” Scarborough, the


owner of 14 previous 300 games, told PBA.com. “Especially to be the fi rst in the PBA to do it. “I never really thought about bowling


a 900 series until I got to the 8th frame of the last game. To be honest, I wasn’t nervous. I was pretending I was at home


practicing, and I blocked out the crowd and focused on executing every shot.” Scarborough may have blocked out


the crowd, but they didn’t block him out. According to former PBA champ Guppy Troup, all of Scarborough’s contempo- raries provided him with an extended standing ovation after he completed the feat. The remainder of the PBA50 event


didn’t go nearly as well for Scarborough, who averaged just above 200 over the remaining 13 games of qualifying and fi nished 49th.


EVERYTHING BOWLING, ALL THE TIME


Morning, Joe! The opening block of the PBA50 event at The Villages proved to be historic for Joe Scarborough, who rolled the fi rst 900 series in PBA history.
