Outgame riddle


While out bowling with his friends, a man managed to throw eight strikes (all ten pins knocked down in a single throw) and not a single gutter ball during the entire game. To his amazement, his final score was only 99 points! Assuming there were no penalties or fouls, can you come up with a ten frame scorecard with eight strikes and a final score of only 99 points?

    One option is:
    strike, one, strike , one , strike, strike, one, strike, one, strike, strike , strike
    11 +   1     +11    +   1  +    21       +11    + 1     + 11   + 1  + 30 = 99
