Bowler Jean-Pierre Uzan finding his groove

Bowler Jean-Pierre Uzan must be drinking from the fountain of youth.

Last year Uzan at the age of 70 set a personal best by rolling a 186 in league play at AMF Woodlake Lanes in Woodland Hills.

On Tuesday night, the 71-year-old Uzan set another personal best by blasting a 188 in his second league game at Woodlake Lanes.

And he did it while he was recovering from a bladder infection and taking pain pills.

“I wasn’t even thinking about a game that high,” said Uzan, who has targeted a 200 game as his No. 1 goal.

Uzan, with a 128 average, called his 188 the biggest highlight in his 15 years of bowling in leagues. He had two opens and finished the game with a strike in the ninth and two strikes in the 10th before rolling a seven count on his final ball.

“I was bowling and all of a sudden it was strike after strike after strike,” he said. “I wasn’t even aware of [the personal best]. It was such a high. Everyone came over and shook my hand. It was incredible. It was a proud night for me.”

Uzan, a Panorama City resident, also bowled a 135 in his first game and ended his series with a 114.
