Bowled Reno over the weekend. Yeah it was a tough shot for sure. Bowled horrid in team. Couldn't find a target. At 1st I was moving right to get into more oil. Was throwin up the 7 board at one point (up an at em). When that dried up had to move deep inside. Had to throw between 3rd an 4th arrows to get it into the pocket, course trying to figure that out took several frames an several splits along the way. Ball was just jumping too much and yes I was using my lesser hooking ball. Finished w/ a dismal 476. Fortunetly couple of the other guys bowled well (2 straight ballers) so we will actually cash in team.
Doubles/singles was much more playable. The longer oil helped keep the ball from over-reacting. I was able to get my first 200 gm of the tourney. Did hafta slow the ball down a hair to get it to hook into the pocket though. Just barely got above the low-to-cash line in doubles. If that creeps up any higher, I may not cash in doubles. Should cash tho in singles. Mid to upper 500's is what I shot in both. So looking like i'll cash in every event (cept all events). I guess 1 good thing is I lowered my overall avg so next year I will NOT be bowling in the upper division.
Bowled the 40 frame tourney afterwards just to prove I wasn't that bad of a bowler. Shot 1083 I think, which they told me will cash. Hit the big whammy so I walked outta there w/ $120
