As you can tell, there have been some incredibly high three game series scores reported by the USBC. These scores are indicative of the similar scoring conditions provided throughout the country where so many perfect 900 series scores, or near perfect scores, have been produced.

These series scores are not necessarily recorded by professional bowlers, rather by players certainly among the highest echelon of league bowlers in the country.
High scores have been here for a very long time judging by the dates scores reflect. There is no indication anywhere in the industry that these scores have motivated proprietors to make lane conditions difficult to hit the pocket consistently so we should expect high scores to continue and we likely will see more names added to this distinguished list.
Whether you are a proponent of high scores or whether you believe scoring conditions today should be made more difficult, the reality is that high scores are likely here to stay.
If you wish to join the ranks and record a high series score rivaling these players, then you best improve your game skills, understand how to use modern bowling ball technology to your advantage, and develop a mentality of stringing strikes - long strings of strikes.
Thank you.
