Bob Benoit Wikipedia
(Bob Benoit (born July 21, 1954 in Topeka, Kansas) was a professional bowler in the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) in the 1980s and 1990s. Over the course of his career, Benoit won 4 PBA titles. He is mostly known for being the first bowler to ever roll a perfect game in a televised title match, as well as the fifth PBA bowler to throw a televised perfect game overall. He accomplished this feat at the Quaker State Open on January 23, 1988 in front of his home crowd at the Forum Bowl in Grand Prairie, Texas, a place where Benoit bowled league during the eleven years in which he lived in Dallas. This was Benoit's first ever title, as well as his first appearance in a telecast. Benoit's opponent for this game was Mark Roth, who finished with a score of 255.
Bob has a brother named Rick who is still involved in the bowling business, working as a tour consultant for Brunswick.
