I was dissapointed with my showing this year as I won't cash at all after making the top 50 in doubles two years ago, 65th last year and cashing in all events last year as well (with a 190+ scratch average). I went in to this tournament with a lot of confidence as I finished the league season two weeks ago bowling well and with my highest season average ever (180). With my tournament entering average as 172 (last season's league finish) I figured that I'd be able to take advantage of the handicap pins - that was not to be, my scores were:
Teams: 191, 198, 198 = 587 scratch, 716 hdcp.
Doubles: 129, 158, 171 = 458 scratch, 587 hdcp. (ouch)
Singles: 157, 201, 178 = 536 scratch, 665 hdcp.
All Events: 1581 scratch, 1968 hdcp.
I was pleased with the teams score but then just couldn't do anything at all in the doubles squad and didn't bowl well (although at least not embarrassingly!) in the singles. We bowled on fresh oil each squad but there was a huge difference between the conditions in the two houses. Northglenn was so much drier with way more backend and I just struggled to adjust. Anyway, lesson learned is to make faster adjustments on drier lanes.
