After reflecting on my performance at Nationals, I think its clear I just wasn't far enough outside. There was a line to the pocket around 9 at the arrows that gave me a little swing area, and I camped out there. The problem was I had bad over/under. I assumed that was the nature of the pattern and to some extent it is. Get it wide and it won't come back. Tug it left its going Brooklyn. But from watching some archived footage I see bowlers on the line struggling with the same issues I had, while bowlers piping the 4-5 area have at least a more consistent reaction.

This tournament is by far my favorite thing I've found in bowling, and I want to achieve success there. Its clear a lot of work is in order. I was pleased with my performance last year, and bitterly disappointed with this year. I'm back two days, and I've got a lesson with a Silver Coach booked, and I plan to meet with him several times over the next year.
