D/S didn't go as planned although I did not bowl all that badly. Aside from missing a few easy spares I actually held my own out there. Targeted pretty much the same area as the team event with my Cash and had a good look. The issue was my partner (also a lefty) was insistent on throwing urethane and the shot got worse as we went on. Started with a 185 (despite 3 opens) and felt pretty good after 208 in game 2. By game 3 things were starting to get a worse and I had to soften my speed to get the ball to hook up to the pocket. Had a few shots where I whiffed the headpin entirely leaving stuff like the 1,3,6 but was making my spares and put a few strikes together to finish with 193 and a 586 series. My partner with his urethane strategy shot 455.

Singles got worse with him sticking with urethane (actually he made a ball change, threw 1 shot with it, said it "didn't work" and went right back to urethane). brickwall. Had to keep moving left and keeping my breakpoint the same which meant I was pointing it at the pocket at that point. Good luck splitting hairs at 60 feet. Not many strikes and ended up shooting 180, 181, and 168 for 529. Frustrating.

Managed to break 1700 but being in the regular division won't get any money back. But still after having a few days to think about it, pretty proud of that given the circumstances. If you're going out there the advice I would have is you need to work together with the other handers if you're going to have a shot to do anything.
