Well I was on the pair of lanes that I bowled real bad on a few weeks ago tonight. I did make my average over all with a 156+126+156=438 First game I had problems with not shooting well and had zero spare conversions. Started off with the zone attack which would not hook enough for tonight. I switched to the slingshot which surprisingly was getting to the pocket during the rest of the first game. I managed to throw 5 strikes in the first game. The second game I only got 1 strikes but managed to get a few spares. But the third game I managed to get 4 strikes but had 3 splits all on shots that looked good on the pocket. Seems I leave a lot of splits when in the pocket. I just do not know how to fix it.

Man, I was struggling last night. Made my average, but I couldn't get pin carry. I was hitting the pocket (apparently good) but leaving 7, 9, & 10's.
I ended up going with a coarse ball and playing deep and ripping the cover off the ball to give it enough in the pocket.

(I also have a cold & was exhausted. I know this had a lot to do with it, but I don't like to make excuses for myself.)

258 268 279 805 last night. 2nd game had front 6, 3rd game had front 9. 800 #6 for me. I went almost 10 years between my first 800 3/98, and my second 10/07, so I've had 5 from 10/07 to now.

12/17 Practice

186, 189, 217, 198 - 197.5 average

Very happy with the way I threw the ball. Need to continue this very consistent pattern, add one more strike and one less open and I will be thrilled.

197, 192, 200 lost my 3rd 600 series in a row by missing an easy 4,7 spare pickup in the 8th frame of the last game. Kinda ticked me off but oh well. I am happy with the scores as they lanes were so diff from the last 2 weeks. There was so much oil out there last night.

well another real bad week on the lanes.
132+127+116=375 .
I could not find a way to strike to save my life.
By the third game I was just playing various lines to see what would happen. Tried way inside way outside. even ending up throwing a gutter and a pulled shot that hit the 7 pin only.
Best strategy for me seems to be throw any wide sot to clear out the back pins first and then shoot the head pins out on the second ball. But that limits my scores to 17-180 max.
sigh. Going to have to try a urethane ball next.
