Man sets new record for backward bowling with almost-perfect game

Man Sets New Record for Backward Bowling with Almost-Perfect Game

For those of you who find bowling challenging, imagine doing it backward! "Fox & Friends" tells us about a man in Rockford, Illinois who broke the single-game record for backward bowling.

'His name is Andrew Cowen. He just bowled backwards. Yeah he's now in the record books! He scored 280 in a single game, 20 points shy of a perfect game.'

Cowen seems to be so confident with his skills that instead of taking a peek at the pins after the ball hits, he just listens. The sound of pins falling tells him all he needs to know.

Check out more of his moves here:

'He bowled a spare in the second frame and after that, 10 consecutive strikes.'

This almost-flawless game gives Cowen the right to brag. He beat the former record by two points.

'The previous Guinness World Record was 278 points set back in 2006.'

The holder of that record was Jim Cripps, who said he started bowling backward because of a dare.
