IT took Warrnambool tenpin bowler Jason Drake 12 years to score his first perfect game.
Drake, 22, then had two in the space of three weeks.
Now, five months after his 300-game breakthrough last September, he has added a third to his tally.
Drake bowled the 300-game on lane six on Thursday night.
He joins Warrnambool Tenpin Bowls Association clubmates Jason Way and David Altmann with three 300 games at the Timor Street venue.
“David has four but one is at Melbourne, so he’s one ahead at the moment,” Drake said.
He said there would be some friendly competition as the trio vied to be the first to bowl a fourth perfect score at their home club.
“There is a bit of talk going around,” Drake said.
“Me and David bowl in the same team and on Tuesday night he bowled a 298, so he is not far behind either.”
Drake said his third perfect game was a challenge.
“They say it gets easier once you do it once,” he said.
“I was nervous. You can’t jump to conclusions or start thinking about the last score because all of sudden you’re not concentrating on your next shot.
“You have to take it one shot at a time, remember your routine and see how you go.”
Drake started bowling in 2000.
He will represent Warrnambool at the Victorian Tenpin Country Cup in Shepparton next weekend.
