He's the bowling ball drilling king

Who knew getting a bowling ball custom-fitted was such a science?

Alabama man Travis Johanssen, who runs McCorvey's Pro Shop inside Lightning Strikes Bowling Center, is among the country's (if not the world's) best bowling ball drillers, reports The Birmingham News.

"In my world, there's no such thing as close," Johannsen, 27, says. "An eighth of an inch off might as well be three miles."

If you want to know more than you'll ever need to about bowling balls, brace yourself for the 10-pin science and read the rest of the story. Then find out exactly how Johannsen gets the job done, in the sidebar story, "10 steps to a perfect bowling ball."
