Last night I threw ok 182-202-191 for 575 series. I had a couple fo perplexing things happen. I finally was able to get the bowling tape I wanted and it helped tremendously with my Black Widow. But I had my doubts about last night because I hadn't bowled at all since last Friday. I figured the 7 pin would be a pain in my butt and it was. 2 for 5 on my 7 pins last night. oops Oh well, I figured it out, and it was like I couldn't miss after that. But still 3 7 pin misses and a baby split that I brain farted on is still 44 pins that I could've had. seeingstars

Also I found that my Black Widow was rolling over the tumb hole about 5-6 times last night and I couldn't for the life of me figure out why. I think it had something to do with my release. Additionally, quite frequently last night, my thumbhole kept pressing against my thumbnail upon releasing the ball. It hurt a little but was mostly just annoying.

Those things aside. My spare shooting is vastly improving with my plastic ball, which I'm really happy about. grin I'm about to stay low and balanced for the most part at the line which I am also really happy about. The thing that was super excited about is that I was walking more in a straight line with my target line. I still drift every now and again but that is starting to disappear. thumbsup

Ian,
I know how you feel. In my one league I've been struggling with the same thing. I was slumping real bad a while back and in my Thrusday night league especially, I couldn't get a whole lot going. Now I have a 172 average in that league and a 181 average in my Friday night league and it bugs the hell out of me. I mean I've been bowling tremendously of late, with the exception of last week, and in that Thursday night league especially, but bringing your average back from a 168 is tough work that is going to take some time or about a month of tremendous sets (I had two a 655 and 692 in that league) and look it is still hasn't changed that much. Get as consistent as you can and it'll come. I do feel your pain though.

exactly ive been going up not as much as ild like but its a great advantage to my team. we are all first year bowlers so they hate it every week we are all going above our average sometimes 40-60 pins, so ive heard the words sandbaggers a few time but hey 1st year of course im gonna get better.
i went from
112
115
120
122

this is my 21 week we took over a team that dropted out 6 weeks late.
the other teams i bowl against are really good though. one team gave us 230 pins we all hit average and over and they still beat us!!!! its so discouraging

i got my ball drilled two days ago and have bowled 8 games since. the average with my new ball is 115.5 which is 7.5 pins over my previous average. im not sure if its because the ball fits my hand or if its just the practice. i really need alot of work before my league starts but i remain hopeful. if not i just thank god for handicaps. i have a feeling im gonna need it.

I started out with a 112 average now im at 122 and riseing been bowling around 160. I think the ball helps alot. But after countless weeks of not hitting over a 200 with 6 strikes in a row 8 strikes total, ive come to the reality im not gonna get anybetter unless i work on my spares and become more consistant.I mean a ball will help i dont think anyone will change my mind on that,but it isnt gonna do it all exspecially if you dont know how to control it, so practice does make perfect!

Ian, you just discovered the key to high scoring. Remember, make your spares and the strikes will take care of themselves.

As for what I bowled, for the week, I had series of 727, 677, 638, 691, 703. Of the 15 games, 9 were clean, including all the games on Thursday night.

Remind me to never again bowl league 5 nights in a row. LOL

Well not what I bowled today but what my son bowled.
168-169-169.

The tips you guys gave him are really coming together along with getting used to the 4 step approach. The coach worked on his muscling his swing problem before the league started and he was so much smoother.

I dont video him during league because I dont want to make the other youth bowlers uncomfortable. He has a pretty bad cold so I dont think he will be asking to practice tonight but if we get some alley time in next weekend I will post some more video so you can see the improvements you guys have helped make.

Oh yeah his average went up 3 more pins to 135 again thanks to your help his love for the game and his coaches.

Not to good of a day for me. It was consistent, but not high. 174, 182, 172-528. That concludes my youth league season, just got a few tournaments coming up. I am so glad I am done bowling at those wood lanes for a while (except practice). I am going to be in a summer league about 40 minutes away. But, they are synthetics! It will be the first time I've bowled a full league on synthetics. I can't wait.

Bowled last night as a sub for a friend last night & had the best outing this year in sanctioned league play. I shot a 683 series with scores of 210, 226 & 247 and a clean 30 frames. All were personal bests. I'm hoping to finish strong in the last 4 wks of Fall/Winter league.
