William Knox of Philadelphia rolled the first perfect 300 game in tournament   
competition history in the USBC Open Championships in Toledo, Ohio. He
had a reputation for match game and league bowling in the East. Knox once
rolled a 300 game with a screen at the foul line so he couldn’t see the pins
for the purpose of illustrating the effectiveness of spot bowling.
