I started my first night in a short 12 week season last night, and it went pretty well. It is a 4 man team with three beginers(thats me) and a friend who averages 195. I have only been bowling for about a month now and have really struggled as I have just learned to throw the hook consistantly, and working on my timing, approach, step pattern, release point etc. has been a bit frustrating. My high game going into leauge was a 157, average of 135. I bought a new ball (ebonite the one) and threw 10 games or so before we started leauge. The problem now is last night I bowled a 149, 159, and a 203, for a 511 series and an average of 170. Is this going to hurt my team if i cant come out and continue to throw those games, my high was only a 157 ever before and now my team is a bit concerned. I plan to keep working on my game, i am a fast learner and love the sport of bowling and i am just absorbing as much about the game as i can, and applying it when i practice. Thanks to all who reply.
