Bowler Tim Wiese reminisces about his shot at perfection

Five months ago, Tim Wiese turned in his personal bowling highlight when he blistered a career-best 287 in his second game of the “Guys and Dolls” league at AMF Woodlake Lanes in Woodland Hills.

Wiese opened the game with 10 straight strikes before leaving three pins on his second shot in the 10th frame. He then converted the 1-3-5 spare and went on to record a 706 series (246-287-173).

It was an exciting night for Wiese, who reminisced about his memorable game while bowling at Corbin Bowl in Tarzana on Wednesday night.

“I got so nervous at the end,” said the 29-year-old Wiese, a Calabasas resident. “I didn't expect that. The last two or three frames I was physically shaking and I’ve never done that before.”

Wiese was averaging 197 at the time. He’s now averaging 186 bowling once a week at Corbin Bowl and remains hopeful that he’ll eventually log his first perfect game.

At 29, Wiese stands a very good chance.

“I’ve got a lot of bowling ahead of me,” he said.

And what would it take for him to bowl his perfect game?

“A lot of luck,” said Wiese with a smile.
