Just got the call, when we left we were in 8th cut was 20 we finished 12th.

Jordan did most of the work he went 224-227-218 to my 202-196-199. I beat him spare wise I missed one all 3 sets and it was the seven 10.

He missed 2 both make able He crushed me strike wise though lol.
It was great time hopefully we can finish top 10 if we do he gets at least a $500 scholarship.

We play again tomorrow, and I believe the way it works is match play, for team and then youth scores go head to head to determine their position as far as finish for scholarships.

I just talked to a friend of ours that was in it as well he said Jordan was second scratch and 4th handicap.

This is a great tourney first time for us they really work hard on making it a special atmosphere for the youth bowlers. When they announced the names they drag out the youth bowlers first name like you would hear a boxing announcer do.

Oh yeah Jordan told me he sure was glad I had all that handicap. They used my book avg from my league when we entered it was 152 then.

Hey Rocket, our association has an Adult/Youth tournament coming up in 2 weeks. Since my kids are grown, could I borrow Jordan?

Nice going you two. Jordan seems to be putting up some good scores and earned some scholarship money as a bonus.

Yeah his coach is all proud of him and according to him since Jordans school doesn't have a high school team but the district we live in does, he can bowl on that team.(His coach coaches the girls team there)we are hoping he is correct.

Dang Jordan's got game. Even my best tourney outing ever I didn't beat him, I averaged 222 and he averaged 226. Congrats to both of you and tell him to keep it up. I'd be interested in seeing new video of him to see if much has changed because his scores sure have smile.

Bowling on a girls' team? LOL

Wow that is fast improvement! How old is he?

He would love to bowl on the girls team the seniors love him all up at practice. But no he will be on the boys team lol.

He will be 14 in may and has been bowling 3 years now, the key with his skill is he can take what is shown him and translate it very fast and he is bowling in some shape or form when hes not in school.

Yeah Amateur I tried to talk him into letting me post some video up but he doesn't like it. His coach has made some DVD's of his practices I am going to get one of those and post up he has some good video where he is working on his lines.

He struggled in his travel league last week shooting a 122-135-215 so its not all roses yet, he just seems to bowl better in tourney situations.

Again thanks for all the comments. Oh he does read this site religiously still especially when the coach mentions something and he still isnt clear on what he meant.

My son and I won the house qualifier for a tourney a couple weeks ago. We have region qualifier in March and then State level, and National level if we make it that far.
