Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

The second game was quite embarrassing, as my Fast wanted to go to the right off of my hand and I ended up double-guttering in the 6th frame. I eventually ended up throwing my Hy-Road on the right lane and salvaged an over-average game in the third game. Both doubles came in the 10th finishing on the left lane (not the right, where I double-guttered).

Result: 168-115-179=462
Average (84 games): 175
Average for last 9 games: 168
Next week's AVG+1 score: 571

My night was so bad Carl was actually high man for us with a 488, but we did win a point third game, as my team needed me to perform in the 10th.

I had one of those nights last night where you see you need to learn something, without actually learning anything.

I started with 279 last night. I was throwing the ball great, and the shot was playing nice. At some point in the second game the lanes transitioned. For the second two games I shot 191 and 190. I had a 4-9 and a 7-10...the rest of the night was clean.

I was able to get to the pocket, but I lost the carry. I had one double each game with only missing the pocket three times. Minor adjustments and eventually a ball change weren't enough to get anything strung together.

I've been able to get a 200+ average grinding through games like this, but its clear that if you want to average 230, you can't be content to grind. You have to string. Bigger changes are obviously necessary, but they're hard to make when you're close.

My slightly sub-par night on the lanes. I had to recreate my second game on Bowlsk, after trying to edit something in the game and some how my score became all screwed up. I was able to remember what I left and get the score right but couldn't remember all of the stance/target as I know I made some moves. I rolled games of 194, 175 and 195 for a 564. First time in a while that I didn't tank on the last game. Unfortunately I went 2 for 6 on 10 pins. Over the last month or so, corner pins have been an issue for me to pick up. Those missed 10 pins made up 4 of my 7 opens. Two other opens were splits and the last one was leaving a 9 pin on a full rack spare attempt after I fouled, and just barely touching the line but enough. Of course the foul was a strike though.

As a team we won 5 of 7 points. We lost the first game by a fair amount, the second game we won easily and the last game came down to what the opposing anchor and I did. If he struck out and I left a split or just opened I think they had a chance, but after carrying a light hit, he hit light again leaving a 3 (lefty). I picked up my 10 pin and got another 9 count. This also had an effect on total as we were able to take it by 2 pins.

I have been priding myself on how I have made changes faster this year. Well I had a regression on Friday. The two lanes were playing very differently. The left lane I was playing 15 out to 7 at the break. I played the right lane the same but was getting different results. I kept getting weak tens. I was slow to change because I thought my release was the problem. First game I was 2 out of 3 on ten pins. 4 bagger to close out a 217. Second game, except for an opening double, I alternated strikes and spares until the fill ball when I threw a split. 208.
I started to make big moves on the right side. I struggled through the first five frames looking for a shot on the right side. I ended up five boards right with my feet on the right lane. Aiming at 11 with my eyes at the arrow, I started to see better results. I strung the last 6 to finish with a 235.
660 series. 7 out of 8 on ten pins. 21 strikes. 1 split.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

The lanes seemed tough tonight, so I was fairly happy with my 495, because I thought my look was a bit better than a couple of my higher-average opponents.

Result: 183-151-161=495
Average (87 games): 175
Average for last 9 games: 166
Next week's AVG+1 score: 604

As I alluded to, two of my opponents were well under average, and the result for us was three points.

This is how my night went as I recorded on Bowlsk. Nothing spectacular and plenty that could have been improved on. I'm still having issues shooting at 10 pins, going 1 for 4. Those 3 misses accounted for half of my 6 opens, with one being a washout and the other two splits. I had games of 185, 222 and 196 for a 603. Unfortunately this wasn't enough to help my team win. We took 1 of 7 points by tying the first game and losing the rest. It's hard to win when someone on the opposing team pre-bowls a 809 and other bowlers on that team put up good numbers the last two games to back up his 298 and 289.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

Left side spares were my weakness tonight, particularly where my single 7 was involved, as I missed all three of those, and pulled a 2 pin, as well. The positive I'll take from this is that I did find a comfortable line in the third game with my Marvel Pearl for my 215; I just wished my other two games were like my third.

Result: 146-154-215=515
Average (90 games): 175
Average for last 9 games: 163
Next week's AVG+1 score: 617

The opponents' pre-bowls were pretty good, particularly from their anchor, and the bowler present for them had two good games, as well. My team lost all four as a result.

Somehow I managed to bowl a 603 series for the second week in a row. This is the full run down of how it happened. I had 8 opens, 5 of those were splits, 2 were washouts and the last was chopping the 3 off of the 3-10. I believe I only threw one shot that I liked and hit flush in the pocket that didn't carry.

The first game I just had issues getting the ball back flush in the pocket. I left several splits involving the 2 and 10, sometimes with other pins sometimes not. A few shots were wide and the ball just didn't get back but even some that I put the ball where I wanted just wasn't finishing strong. So I switched from the Triton to my Hy-Road in the ninth frame and punched out for a 162.

The second game I went clean. I either struck or left only single pins that I covered. Rolled a 226. All but one of the single pins were solely due to Execution.

The last game I started out with 3 opens in the first 5 frames. One was a washout, the next was the Greek Church when my line finally started to dry up and the third was a chopped 3 off of the 3-6 following the Greek Church. Then I made the move and ran off a 6 bagger, and then threw a split in the twelfth frame for a 215.

As a team we won 5 of 7 points. We lost the first game by 50 something, won the second by 70 something that put us up in total and won the last game to wrap up total.

Just wanted to say thanks again to everyone on this board for all the tips. Finished the season tonight with a career high 739 and a new high average of 205.86 for a full season league. Last year I broke 200 for the first time ever thanks to this board and added a few more pins this year. Yeah for technology. Next stop 210.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)

I don't use my Reign of Fire often because I sometimes think I have problems getting it to rev up, but, when I was lost in the second game, I thought to pull it out of my locker with nothing to lose, salvaged something out of the game, then proceeded to have one of my few clean games of the season, which I was proud of also because I converted a couple of splits, including a 3-6-7-10, to stay clean.

Result: 180-146-197=523
Average (93 games): 174
Average for last 9 games: 170
Next week's AVG+1 score: 526

Team won the first game big, lost half of the lead in the second game, then rallied around me to win the third game for three points.
