Then I was like lets just have fun and bowl.

The six ganes I kept score are above, I just wanted to clear my head and let it happen. I tend to be very analytic on everything I do so that in itself can cause problems. Hope this kinda clears things up.


Ok sounds good, just make sure that during your practice sessions you are working on something and you do not worry about score. It is ok to have games with score on, but I would not consider that practice, I would consider it just open bowling. Good luck and it might help to pay attention to only one thing at a time. If you work on timing, just pay attention to that, don't worry about the rest of the stuff, if you want to work on arm swing, don't worry about anything but the swing, the rest doesn't matter. Same with the release, if you want to improve your release, work on just the release and nothing else. Many say it takes thousands of repetitions to ingrain something in your muscle memory. If you figure that out with 20 shots per game, that totals out to about 50 games before you have it down. I typically practice one thing a week, if I want to improve my balance, I work on that for an entire week and nothing else.

Congrats, Unclesalty! I've only managed three 600's and never been able to get three 200's in one series. Awesome achievement! You were obviously in the zone!

New Spring/Summer League started last night....not really the way I hoped it would considering the momentum I had in the last 30 weeks of my USBC regular season league.

I felt akward with my release, I was moving my head, came over top the ball a couple of times and couldn't seem to make spares.....UGGHHHH....reciepe for disaster.

But I was able to strike and that seemed like the only thing that saved my series.

204 166 206 = 576 Both 200 plus games included 3 opens apiece. Carry down was bad in game 2 as I struggled between adjustments and ball change to find a good line.

Bowled in end of League hat draw doubles tournament and went 230, 238 and got second...just wish I wouldn't have missed the 10 pin in the first game or threw the bad shot the second. The lower average guy I was paired with did his job and went 15 over both games. Now if I would have just bowled a little bit better we would have won. Oh well, happy with the second.
