TO say Mark Richardson was bowled over by his perfect game would be an understatement.
The 16-year-old from Buderim has become the youngest person to score a perfect game at Suncity Tenpin at Alexandra Headland.
The state and national bowler scored 300 during his match in this week's Beachcombers League where he went up against competitors twice his age.
His Monday night achievement made him the 25th person since the centre opened in 1979 to achieve a perfect score.
He has being recognised locally and even on an international scale.
"The last bowl felt like it took forever," Mark said.
"It felt like it was in slow motion. My legs went wobbly and my arms gave way.
"It was an unbelievable feeling, though, like excitement mixed with nerves.
"When it finally happened I yelled out at the top of my lungs. Everyone went crazy."
Mark said it was not until he bowled his eighth frame he realised he could have a perfect game.
His father, who was bowling metres away, had no idea his son was on the way to a perfect score.
"He didn't realise what was going on, someone had to go get him to watch my final bowl," Mark said.
News of the teenager's success in the bowling alley even gained the attention of Tim Mack, one of the world's leading ten pin bowlers.
"When I got home that night I got on Facebook and made a status about the perfect game," Mark said.
"I got a like from Tim Mack. It was a great piece of acknowledgement."
Mark will get his name on the wall at Suncity with a special plaque from Tenpin Bowling Australia.
