Ten-pin bowling and being a ginger became instantly cool after footage of a teenage bowler nailing the virtually impossible 7-10 split (that’s two pins on opposite sides of the alley) went viral.

Eighteen-year-old American Anthony Neuer – who goes by the nickname of the “Ginger Assassin” – became a viral hit after nailing one of the most difficult feats in bowling.

Competing against Jakob Butturff in the US Open semi-final, the “Assassin” became the first person in 30 years to convert a 7-10 split in a televised match and only the fourth time in TV history.

Footage of the effort was posted to Twitter has been viewed more than 2.7 million times.

Reporting on the bowl, commentator Rob Stone went positively nuts: “He did it! He got the 7-10, Randy! He did it! Wooohooo!

“My goodness, the Ginger Assassin just dropped the 7-10! You bet, kid, you bet!

“Oh man, give me some oxygen and water,” Stone enthused.

However, the incredible bowl was all in vein. Sadly Neur ultimately losing the game to Butturff by 257-203.
