Wish me luck, I really need it, im going to try to get my junior gold spot, this is basically my last chance for it, i feel like im throwing the ball well, only 3 opens in league today due to mental errors, and a fight that was happening literally around me shot 698 still258,254,186 we can see where the fight started. Anyone have some tips that they can give me to stay focused throughout the day? maybe a way to read the lanes a little better? anything will help, thanks

Don't watch other people or you might get jealous. Just concentrate on yourself.

yeah, the problem is if i dont watch everyone else then i focus on my score and thats where my mental game goes away, i probably just need to focus on making good shots every frame and when i make a bad shot dont beat myself up about it

DG,I actually practice focus as much as I practice throwing a ball. Every time I am at the lanes I work on it. One of the best things that was ever done to me was my coach had my dad stand on one side of me on the approach and he stood on the other, then they would walk step for step with me throughout the approach. I had to do it until I could hit my mark on every shot. Now sometimes when my focus is going away I will purposely practice by people that don't know lane courtesy trust me if you can bowl in those conditions you can bowl tournaments. As far as reading lanes my favorite way is still watching the ball leave the deck when you get a real good feel for that you can actually stay ahead of the move with smaller subtle adjustments.

Yeah, people recently started doing the walking next to me thing, its kinda annoying but i was still able to execute the shot. The only thing that is a problem with your method of reading the lanes is we dont even get pattern length let alone a name, so in our few shots of practice we have to figure out the pattern and be able to score, weve had a 37 foot, a 50, and a 40 foot, i have no clue what theyll throw at us this month but im only gonna have my victory road probably so its either gonna be a surface adjustment if its long, but thats only if i cant get the ball to roll, and if its any other pattern it will just be hand position changes, i know how good i can bowl when im focused, i know that i can make my spares, its just a quick easier way to read the lane condition, i mean theres some college bowlers that come to these that have some issues with the lane conditions

Good luck buddy, concentrate on hitting your marks and making your spares. I think you will be fine.
