Oh I definately agree. My resoning in my head though just usually simplifies things for myself. I am working with an experienced gentleman at the house I bowl. I know exactly where my feet are at the beginning of the approach but I did have to get someone to spot me for where I ended up. Which is why I had to change my game a bit from 15yrs ago. Seems now I have a left drift going from start to finish. I new I was wondering I just needed someone to point out how much. They can tell me from what board # to the other board number. For my way of thinking "Simple Man" It's easier for me to start with desired target then count one direction or another. I am a mechanic, I deal
with #'s all day long so when I get a chance to simplify it, I jump on it. I have been getting alot of info on here it is an awesome site. I spend alot of time reading and browsing. I even drew a chart to keep up with the references of board #'s. Also though to keep the comparison simpler for myself I know my mark and I just count from that mark in either direction. I generally work with my ball speed instead of moving my target unless things get really bad. I try new things every practice to see what I can work with and what I can't. I have always had the "exception to the rule" characteristics even in my Pool game. Guess I am just wired different.
Don't get me wrong, ie. throttling me thinking I am dismissing what you say, I try new ideas and approaches to get better. Tis why I come here to get other ideas and approaches to the game.
