As I think ahead to next week's US Open pattern, 40 feet of 1:1 oil, I have but one ball. The Storm Crux. I was reading Mo's old ball surface article and trying to make sense of it. If I take mine down to 360 and do a 500/100 pad, will the 360 lay

Second to last night of Friday league, I decided that with the temps high, I should bring three balls just in case. First frame, 9-spare. 11 in a row for 290. 2nd game 243, third was 235 for a 768. My second 700 series, but first in league. Yeah,

Hey guys I know I have not posted much this season but still liked being on the virtual league. This has been a down season for me but having my equipment and health issues resolved I think I will see an improvement in the future. Good Luck to all.

I'm in a senior league, we don't get any warm/practice up balls.So that got me thinking. A mystery pattern, start cold and figure it out as you go could be interesting.
