Congratulations are in order for Talladega bowler E.J. Morgan who has bowled three perfect 300 games in the past three months. That’s three different times he’s gone to the lanes and thrown a dozen consecutive strikes.

Comparable to a golfer hitting a hole-in-one, or an archer splitting an arrow in the bullseye, a 300 game is the dream of every competitor who hits the lanes.

Changes in bowling ball manufacturing and lane preparation over the past few decades have helped more bowlers succeed in hitting the magic number than in the past. It’s not as rare a feat as is used to be. But it’s still a dream only a small percentage of bowlers ever realize, and for a bowler to hit the mark three times in three months is truly remarkable.

It’s nice to see a sportsman at the top of his game and we offer congratulations to Morgan on his achievement.
