Dale Davis, 78, of Alta, Iowa, bowled a perfect 300 last weekend. He's legally blind. From the Storm Lake Times:
"It was quite a thrill," Davis said of the achievement. "When I got to the tenth frame, I said 'Lord, let me throw three more good balls…"
"I can't see the lane or the pins and have a heck of a time finding my ball sometimes," Davis said with a laugh of his bowling skills. "I can kinda see the dots on the floor to know where I start. After that, I rely on my hearing and other people to tell me what's going on."
When he doesn't throw a strike, fellow bowlers like Century Lanes owner and good friend Clem Ledoux tell Davis what pins are still standing. The blind bowler then finds his bearings with the dots on the lane, approaches and hurls his next shot.
