Consistency is one thing I have been struggling with lately. Tonight I guess I found some. I shot 233 - 233 - 233 for a 699. One pin away from a 700. First time I've had the same score all three games in league. Just thought it was interesting.

I think you can leave out the "sort of". You achieved consistency tonight.

Consistency and repeating good shots is something that all of us struggle with every time we go bowling. Some days things just seem "right" and we can't miss - other days it is as if our bodies have never bowled before.

That's what makes this game exciting and keeps us coming back for more.

One key to consistency is a proper setup routine that you repeat the same way each time you bowl.

As a quick note, that is a USBC award although I believe now it is a certificate you print out yourself after you league sends in the achievement to be verified.

I'll have to check into that. I didn't think there would be a USBC award for something like that?

The best part of last night was it was position round and I was bowling head to head against my coach. He was pretty much matching me shot for shot, so the competition level was extremely high. I took two out of three games, and also took overall 699 to 693. Great time, great fun, and we were playing head games with each other between shots. He said it was to prepare me mentally for our next tournament in a couple of weeks. I think he was just trying to win by any means necessary. Either way, we had a blast.

That's a hell of a triplicate score to have, 1 Pin. Nice job!
