Dave Wilson went for the record Saturday night cheered on by 300 people at Eastern Lanes in Franklin Township as he earned $7,100 for the children's charity, Building Blocks Foundation, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Monday.
Wilson played 375 games and knocked down 59,615 pins in three days -- comparable to four years' worth of league bowling.
His personal trainer told the newspaper: "It was incredible to watch -- and it puts being tired into a whole new perspective."
The official record set by a man in Italy is 60 hours and 15 minutes.
It will probably take months for Guinness World Records officials to certify Wilson's feat.
