I always walk toward my target - I find that if I try to walk straight with my body pointed toward my target, I drift unpredictably or I throw my ball inconsistently.

For my 10-pin, I line up the center arrow (20) with a point to the right of the 10-pin (basically where the lane divider "ends") - knowing that point lines my shoulder up with the 10-pin (because my eyes are about 8-10 boards left of my shoulder/ball line.

Now, if I walk toward my target (the center arrow), my ball crosses the arrow and proceeds directly toward the 10-pin, giving me a touch of wiggle room.

I know that I have to take a side-step around the ball return on the right lane - I've practiced that and can do it consistently.


Which, really, is the point. I can walk TOWARD something consistently. Can I walk and chew gum at the same time, consistently? Maybe. LOL

Can I walk toward something while pointed at something else consistently? Me? No.

So I've found what I can do and where I have to aim to get what I need, consistently.

You know? LOL
