That is a good list of bowlers. Have fun and let us know if you would happen to be on the same pair as any of them.

Good luck Joe! From what all you guys are saying about Motiv, I might have to try them out. The tournament I bowled in on Saturday and Sunday had a Pro Shop that carries Motiv whereas my normal Pro Shop does not carry Motiv. In fact, my normal Pro Shop only carries about 4 brands. frown

I bowled the Masters in 2004. It was always my favorite tournament to follow and watch on TV and I decided to give it a shot that year. I didn't make it past qualifying, but was proud of my performance. It was an experience of a lifetime. I crossed with Mika Koivuniemi the whole first day (and he's my favorite bowler) got to meet lots of pros and very good amateurs, and the thrill of the whole tournament was practicing a few games with Mark Roth one of the nights (though he wasn't there to bowl the event.) I stuck around to watch the week unfold, and Walter Ray went on to win. It was an unforgettable experience.

Thanks, Doogie. I will post here once I know more about the lane assignments.

Sounds like you may have found a new Pro Shop, cgrimes. Motiv rocks.

House Bowler, your experience reflects my hope going into the Masters. At a minimum, I am looking forward to bowling 15 games with the best in the world. Everything else is a bonus. As far as scoring is concerned, a fellow league bowler, a high speed/high revs lefty power player, who crushes the local house shot, and everybody is always talking about, bowled the Masters last year. He averaged 179 for 10 games. If I at least average 180 or better, I would be a hero among the down-and-in strokers in my world. smile

Speaking of world, this year's roster also includes several bowlers from other countries including Canada, Colombia, England, Japan, Mexico, Sweden, Ukraine, and Venezuela.

And if I, years down the road, average at least 180 on tough shots like those, I would be a hero to all the down-and-in "power strokers," or I would at least hope that my style in the future would resemble a "power stroker."

Carolier is a little less than 2 hrs from my home and I'll probably go up at least one day. A couple friends and I are talking about participating in one of the pro-ams on Monday.

I see them scheduled between 4-7pm on bowl.com, but I didn't see any details as far as cost...etc.? I guess they would accept walk-ins if they have slots...
