Backwards bowler scores a 280; sets world record

Posted: Updated:

Bowling can be a difficult sport to master for anyone but what about doing it backwards?

Andrew Cohen is the world record holder for the highest score ever in "backwards bowling" scoring a 280.

Cohen says he spent his "spare" time while growing up in Rockford, IL  at the local bowling alley.

"That's probably the best part of bowling backwards. It's a lot of fun. People come down and say hey that's really neat. How do you do it?" said Cohen.

Coincidently the first ever 300 score for regular bowling was also recorded in Rockford in 1902.
