As both of you state, you can bowl poorly, but feel that bowled better than your score shows. In my instance, I had such a wide lane to the pocket, and did have a few poor releases. But, the lanes were so forgiving, that I would carry anyhow. That is why I said my bowling was bittersweet. I know I can bowl better than I did, but the scores wouldn't indicate that. And, I don't want to fool myself.

That title me think of The Hotel New Hampshire.

Sk8, that's a nice list, I might just print that out for future reference.

I have had nights in both directions. I shot a 299 last year and while I was very excited for the score I knew I had a number of lucky strikes (I can remember one specifically where I swung the ball waaaaay outside, came in light and still carried). Each shot felt and rolled a little different, but they all stayed on the right side and carried (well...). A couple times I even commented I was glad it was a house shot because I just wasn't being that consistent. So I was happy with the results, but not really with my bowling. My last game of that night was a 220 and I was actually happier with that game from a performance standpoint. (no comment on the game right after the 299!)

Just last week I was struggling pretty bad, I think I shot a 170 something one game and a 180 something another, but I was actually really happy at the end of the night. My first ball was in the pocket most the night and I just wasn't carrying, I was a little long, a little heavy, a little straight, etc, but I was in the pocket. The thing that really made me happy was that while I left at least ten 10-pins during the night, I picked up every one. That is my worst single pin spare to shoot at, I usually don't leave that many in one night, and to actually pick them all up was great. I did pretty good with my other spares too, I missed a few splits but picked up most everything else. So bad scores, but a pretty good performance.

Back to league night, and back to the tougher shot. 612 tonight, and it was rough. Tomorrow, I bowl again on the funnel shot. Hope I have fun again.

Everyone will find an easy shot/line sometimes. As long as you are being honest with yourself and know what you did right/wrong and keep working on those accordingly.

I bowled my highgame because a line worked for me for 2 games, then it was gone, I know I couldnt replicate that high game consistently, but I gained confidence that I hit a performance level and I could continue hitting it.

After that Ive worked my way up to several other games near my high, and gained confidence.
