Justin, I wasn't telling you that you needed a closer target. I sound obvisously and used the conjunction "but," implying that you're on the right track and giving you advice or something that you could add to what you were doing. If you read the post again, what I was trying to get across is that don't worry about it, spare shooting is all about angles and you have to find the ones that work for you. Developing your eye for the spares takes time and then every now and again you suddenly go blind or get punched in the eye, like my 502 last night. Besides a closer target and you'd be doing the Wes Malott thing where he looks down at the lane during his approach and I'm sure that you want to do that.


Oh alright sorry about that. I guess I took it the wrong way. I apologize.

No worries. It happens. Mostly because you (meaning anyone who does online posting or writing) can't tell the tone of voice that anybody else is using and sometimes the ideas don't come out as clearly as the writer thinks they are. So again no worries. Sh*t happens.

Alright thanks.

Well today I bowled terrible terrible terrible. Shot a 147, 155, and 162. I missed to many single pin spares, I dont know if it was just cause I was a little nervous with it being our first highschool match of the season or what, but I should never miss them like that. It seems like my spare shooting has been getting worse! =(

I kind of stumbled into a good score tonight in my Monday night mixed league. The approaches were tacky and I was constantly ending up off-balance. The captain on the opposing team was sticking also.

Somehow I ended up with a 651 - all games were over 200. I consider myself to be a 180 bowler so all in all, this was a strange night but I'm not complaining.

My knees felt good tonight despite the sticking.

I know the feeling. Relax, especially on the single pin shots. It's weird because all of sudden you're spare will be there and then it will suddenly disappear. I wouldn't worry about it too much, from the sounds of it, you were just nervous. It happened to me in the CA State tournament, excepy my scores were more sparadic.

Alright thanks Demolition man, we got practice today, and I'm really going to focus on those single pins. We have a match tommorow so hopefully I will do better.

Justin-
You might already be doing this, but it would benefit you to practice spares on your first ball and then pracice strike lines on the second. This will ensure you get the reps you need to gain some confidence in your spare shooting. Hang in there, it will get better.

Chubbs makes a very valid point. Practice some spare shots in your warm-up shots. It'll help tremendously. Recently, I've been showing up to league and I usually don't get enough time to practice my spares and it really throws me off.
