SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Garrett Lawson of Ellisville rolled the sixth 300 game of this year’s United States Bowling Congress Open Championships on Thursday.
Lawson opened his doubles competition with games of 244 and 187 before making a ball change just before his trey.
"The ball I was throwing started over-reacting, so I switched to the Soniq," he said. "The more I tweaked and fiddled with it, all of a sudden I ran into something that was really good."
Lawson finished with a 731 set in doubles, and Tony DeVita added a 594 for a 1,325 total, which is currently in 40th place.
In singles, it took Lawson a few frames to recover from the trey. He had games of 153, 203 and 186 for a 542.
"It took me a while to get my head back into it, especially the first game," he said. "I missed like three single-pin spares the first game of singles. I couldn’t get calmed down to where I felt right again."
Lawson added a 637 in team for an all-events total of 1,910.
