Just joined a new league @ a new house and I have no idea on how to approach shadow bowling practice. We have about 5 minutes to throw...any suggestions?

What is 'shadow' bowling? Are you talking about the shadow spare pickup system?

Shadow balls are without any pins set up. It speeds up practice by not having the rack sweep and reset pins.

Anyhow, practice should be to read the lanes, not how many pins you knock down. So, aim at your target, and watch how the ball reacts. Adjust as needed to come close to the pocket area.

If your on a THS pattern just throw your typical shot and see if the ball is going to where the pocket should be. Then throw a shot just inside of you favorite shot and one just outside to see if you can miss inside and/or outside. Usually THS patterns down't require major changes on where you usually play so just guesstimate where to play.
