I don't do well on Sport Conditions. Thou it depends on the layout of the oil pattern provided by the center hosting the ABT Tournament.

Is speed really that important, even on drier lanes?
I think once I get the speed problem resolved I should be able to bowl better up against ABC Sport Condition.

If you cannot be consistent in ALL of those areas, you will not be successful on the sport condition. Period.
Simply put, there is no area on MOST sport patterns. You have to be consistent and have the ability to repeat shots.
