Bowler Greg Kolski rips 278 game

Just think: Two years ago Greg Kolski was a good-but-not-great bowler who was averaging 161.

Today, Greg is a bona fide threat to smoke a perfect game any time he’s on the lanes.

Case in point was Thursday night when Greg crushed a 278 game in his first game of the “Thirsty Nite Out” league at AMF Woodlake Lanes in Woodland Hills that was marred only by a spare in the third frame.

That marked Greg’s personal best as he zeros in on his two goals: a 300 and a 700 series (he’s bowled a 692.)

Greg, 30 years old and a West Hills resident, was denied his perfect game by a light hit in the third frame that left the 2-8.

“I was very, very close,” said Greg on Friday. “I had one wide shot that killed me.”

Greg, a right-hander, uses a big hook to get explosive action on his strike ball. With a much-improved spare ball, he’s now averaging in the 180s.

After rolling his 278, Greg tallied scores of 188 and 163 in his final two games to finish with a strong 629 series.

Interestingly, Greg’s 278 surged to an eye-popping 343 with handicap.
