Bowler's Perfect 300 Game

RUINED

In Freak Lane Accident

8/5/2013 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Imagine being thiiiiiis close to bowling a perfect 300 game ... only to watch that stupid lane rack thingy come down and BLOCK  YOUR BALL on the VERY LAST roll.

That's what happened to Troy Walker, who was killin' it at the 2013 Luci Bonneau Doubles Tournament in Houston this weekend ... and the heart-breaking moment was all caught on tape.

Ya gotta watch the footage ... captured by InsideBowling.com ... and then listen to Walker's explanation.  

According to Walker, the whole thing may have been his fault because he hit a reset button on the lane right before his throw -- though Walker says he THOUGHT he was resetting the lane next to his.

Either way, Troy got a do-over on the final shot ... but blew it.

A wise bowling enthusiast probably said it best -- "Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar ... well, he eats you."

Bowling isn't really a sport but I know you are trying to build up the brand so.

The guy who pushed the button should be moved back down to the duckpin leagues.

And no one is asking why the person was jumping down in front of the pins at 0:20?
