Was hoping for some activity in this thread by now but I'll kick it off and post about my tournament win today. It was the NAT handicap tournament that Richie and I have posted about in the past. It was at my home house and I've felt good about how I've been bowling there in the last month. Despite it being a handicap tournament there were still some good players in this including one former touring PBA pro.

Had 193+223+233=649 during qualifying, starting with a few tough opens in game 1. Had the front 6 in game #2 but then had two consecutive splits including a pocket 7-9. There was a guy on the pair that was throwing a plastic ball straight down the lane and I think there was some carry down. Still made good enough adjustments and was fine the rest of the way. Qualified 4th. They took 12 bowlers overall so that gave me a first round bye.

Got into match play and found myself trailing but my opponent had an open in the 7th frame and I was able to throw a late turkey to shoot 213 and take it. Didn't even need the 12 pins my opponent was giving me. Got pitted against the top qualifier in the 2nd game, he was actually on the same pair as me during qualifying and with the way he was bowling I thought he was going to win the tournament. However he had a really rough game and the match was over by the 7th frame or so. My 204 was plenty enough to advance me to the final.

Got matched up with another lefty stroker in the finals. He bowls out of the same house and he's a friend of mine. I was able to outlast him in the finals, started with a double and then mostly filled frames he struggled somewhat. I beat him 194-193, actually had a pocket 7-9 in the 10th that cost me a game in the 200s. Fortunately the game and the tournament was wrapped up at that point.

Overall I averaged just under 210 for 6 games which I think is pretty good considering I bowled on 6 different pairs. More importantly didn't have any bad games that could have cost me the tournament. Really feels good to get my first win.
