Retired Contractor Bowls Perfect Game, Shoots Hole In One
He bowled the perfect game at Bowling Green lanes in Middleton, Wis., and sank the hole-in-one on the 149-yard fifth hole at the Pleasant View golf course in Middleton.
Ted Donker, director of golf operations at Pleasant View, confirmed that Hughes hit the hole-in-one. Terry Knight, the bowling alley's manager, confirmed the perfect game.
Hughes previously hit a hole-in-one in 2000 and has bowled three other perfect games.
Hughes said that he prefers golf because it's an outdoor sport, but he thinks bowling a perfect game is a bigger accomplishment, noting that it requires "12 perfect shots."
