  • Golf pro records a 300--and...

    Jeff Davis, PGA golf professional and teaching pro at Sea Trail Golf School, did something last week that few people ever do. He bowled a perfect 300 game at Little River Lanes in Little River, S.C.

    Unlike golf, in which there is no finite perfect score, bowling does measure perfection. A 300 game means the bowler has hit 12 strikes in a row. There are 10 frames in bowling; each strike is worth 10, plus the pin fall from the next two balls. Keep going through the last frame, which has two bonus throws, and the perfect bowler will get a score of 300.

    Two West Brunswick wrestlers will compete at the state meet.

     To be a NASCAR driver these days, its helps to have a degree in finance.

    Early in the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Chad McCumbee is spending more time trying to broker financial deals than trying to devise race strategies.

    McCumbee opened his fifth season in the truck series by racing Feb. 13 at Daytona International Speedway. He intends to be at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the second race of the season March 6. But that is about the only thing he is certain about for the rest of this season.
