Good luck in doubles and singles, Champ!
It's been a few years since I bowled the Open Championships, but after practicing for 4 weeks on the same surface and patterns and doing well, I decided to give it another go. While out there, I bowled the Bowlers Journal
event first, on the doubles/single pattern. The 2 balls I brought which worked so well at home were hooking out of my hand. By the last game, I was up against the ball return with nowhere left to move. I tried again during practice with the same balls in the team and d/s event, and wound up choosing to roll plastic polished with a slip agent for all 9 games. It was hooking at least 16 boards. I finished all events just above 1600. It was very disappointing.
I say all this to highlight what an amazing performance by Matt Mcniel. What he has accomplished is hard to believe occurred on the same lanes. Those would be good scores even on a house shot. I'd love to know his secret.
