It was the 7th October 1999, where the now Tenpin Bowling Australia CEO Cara Honeychurch embarked on her professional bowling career in the USA as a 27-year-old.
In the first week that she turned professional and her second tournament, Cara would appear in the opening shootout match at the PWBA AMF Gold Cup at Richmond, Virginia, USA.
Showcasing nerves beyond her years, Cara would throw a 300 game in the opening shootout match against Aleta Sill (238) and Wendy Macpherson (213) and be awarded a $50,000 cash prize for doing so. Cara would finish the tournament runner up to Dana Miller-Mackie.
This would be the second ever TV 300 game by a female bowler in the history of the game. Michelle Feldman was the first to roll a 300 on TV two years prior in the title match of the Southern Virginia Open in 1997.
