Bowled well this morning. 213, 212, 187. Started a second league this week, so I now have a Thursday night league and a Friday morning league, so I get two sets on the lanes in between oils. Hoping it'll assist me in tournaments this year with the transitions in those longer blocks with 3-5 man teams. A couple of solid ten pins late in the third game spoiled the set a little though.

Bowled the top team last night. In our threesome, second shift league, these guys are murderous with averages of 238-235-224. Any one or two can get hot in any game. And, they did. Their low man in game 1 was 244. Game 2 saw a 279 and 258 from them. We lost both.

I had 209-194-260. I'd like to think my 260 with solid support from the others on the team, helped us win a game. But No, we lost that game too. Won 2 of 19 points. I was high on our team with 663. Their low man was 675. Cheesh.

I did win my final head to head point, though. Final game was X, then a solid 9-pin spare, X, then another solid 9-pin spare, and ran the table. Nice ball change. to my XTreme damage.

Nice bowling Dennis, even though your team had a good night. You can take some solace in that.

We only took a couple of points too, and I only beat my man once striking in the tenth to do it. But I continue the roller coaster ride I have been on since the middle of last year. I feel ok, but I guess I am having issues with my adjustments throughout the night. Thats the only thing I think that could be the problem. I am getting killed by splits, and its not always late, sometimes its the middle game...for example...205, 146, 204, then I followed that with a 210,205,153 and last night 180, 213, 150.

I have never had so much trouble making adjustments. I bowl enough to be able to figure it out. But nope, so far no go. I must be braindead or something..I do too little too late. Its pretty frustrating.

Here's my last couple weeks...

191, 168, 212
192, 143, 194 (2nd game I got psyched out when I had to question a player resurfacing in mid game. It was a missunderstanding.)
211, 174, 245
225, 200, 233
208, 198, 217

I made a huge improvement a few weeks ago when I realized that I got into a rut of poor starting hand position. I was watching Chris Barnes and remembered that my grip was similar to his.

Worked with my coach today........something that was LONG overdue.

Changed a few things in my release and my approach. Then we got together with some friends for a few games. I shot 265 - 277 - 268 - 254, my coach beat me every game but one. But I think we got some things worked out?

Just got back from trying my new Anarchy for the first time. shot a 176, 235 and 180. The 2nd game should have been in the 250's but i shot a 9 in the 10th and missed it. after that i started to move around alot just to see how ball reacted. Def found out that there needs to be a lot of oil out there. the edges were dry and as soon as i hit that the ball would make a hard move to the left.

162 game = 8 ten pins or seven pins in a row
missed a couple ten pins during this frustration, I ended up switching balls in the 9th frame for a strike
tried making adjustments to change the angle with no luck
after ball switch I was back to my norm.
Average anywhere from 214-196 depending on 10 pins

I'm really on fire in 2011. I just can't stop striking! I got my first 800 less than a week ago, and last night, while subbing on my brother's team I shot 268, 268, 300 for an 836. In less than a week I've gotten five honor scores, and I haven't been below 700 since the New Year.

165, 211, 234. Had a little bit of trouble early on getting the ball to retain energy. Started increasing my ball speed and magically I got some pin carry for the last two games.
