266-168-162, 596.

First game had a double, then a split then ran the table. Next game started with a double, then I don't know what happened. Lost my timing completely. Couldn't strike and couldn't spare either. Chopping or pulling everything.

Most disappointing after the nice start. Oh well. There's always tomorrow.

201-189-227, and I lost the THIRD game. Flagged a 5 pin for the first time all year, otherwise threw some good shots, maybe a slightly late adjustment switching balls in game 2, but otherwise satisfied.

220-202 today, followed up with about another half hour of practice. Rolled fairly well, especially the first game, but missed a 4-pin in game two. That seems to be the single pin I have the most trouble with. Go figure.

222-195.

Fairly consistant today, just gotta work on the timing! i think i have the swing down.

Been averaging over 200 for the past two weeks! one bad shot here and a nine there kept my first game at 222.
195 had two splits early and recoverd and from the 8th.

Working on balance and arm swing plane, this morning. Had some success, then it would go away, only to return back to good. Bowled right in front of the main desk, and asked the desk guy if he noticed anything. He did mention that my pushof was not straight, causing my back swing to not be straight. But, it only happened sometimes, and he wasn't sure why only on some balls. Confusing????

238-204-216-242-209-244. 1353 for 6 games, or 225.5 average.

Good thing was only 2 opens. A first frame missed 10 pin, and a split pocket 7-10.

Well it wasn't today, but last Thursday I shot a 199-177(which is my current average), and a 195 for a 571 series. That was very nice to get. Especially since I focusing on keeping my swing straight. As you can see I had a little trouble in the second game with it but figured it out. I missed too many easy spares for my likely though. Gonna have to work on that. Overall though, it was a great league night for me.

We are on a trip and the wife and I decided to take our bowling stuff with us just in case we ran across a bowling center close to where we were going. Went to a center in Galax, VA. yesterday. I shot a 198 - 203 - 204 with NO OIL on the lanes. Wife shot a 97 - 132 - 99. (Her average is around 85 so it was a great series for her.)

Going to a center tomorrow somewhere in VA........wife has this one planned so I have no clue where it is. But, that makes it even more fun!!!!!!!!

An hour or so of practice today working mainly on free arm swing, and rolling out through the target. Worked on the "over / under" system John Jowdy described in the latest BTM today and yesterday and found it to be helpful in freeing up the arm swing, and in keeping me from hitting up on the ball. Didn't keep score, but I was striking fairly consistently.

Not great score today. Working on Balance and release. Concentrating on ring finger for more lift and middle finger for more roll. Did a a few with bean bag on head. That just feels odd. it works but it so odd. ha.

Anyway, i was able to move inside, release off ring finger and could get it but to the pocket. Awesome!
Then moving back right rolling off middle finger over 7th and 8th
and hitting the pocket.

So many variables. I really love this sport. Even when the scores are low there is ALWAYS something positive to come away with.

Thanks to all for the advise.
Stick to it, It really really works!
