bowling... [Aug. 10th, 2009|07:18 pm]
man. this past year has been a bowling roller coaster. We'll probably take the summer off next year. It kinda gets a bit overwhelming. We've been bowling every week for the past 2 years. It's been fun but we are starting to get frustrated that our rate of improvement has slowed down so much.

Last night I bowled a 535 series. 182, 176, 177.

My current average is 166. It's lower than I'd like, but it's a pretty accurate average considering how roller-coaster it's all been...now I just need to improve my game and gather some of that consistency I really need to become great.

OH, but I did convert 3 of my 4 splits of the night...and the one I missed was really close to hitting. One other that I consider a split, I did also convert but wasn't a real split b/c the headpin was still standing.

I had a good night.

I am totally determined to get my average above 170 during fall season.

Awesome on the splits. How are you on single pin spares? Pretty consistent?

yeah, i almost never miss the singles...unless it's the 10 and then there's about a 30% chance I'll miss.

using a spare ball or your reactive on the 10's?

reactive. I've only got the one.

I am still planning on taking Steve's old black window re-drilled for me and re-surfaced, but haven't done it yet...

even then I'll still just have the reactives.

If you're consistent on spares I wouldn't suggest going to a spare ball, but for me, once I changed my hand position on the 4,7,6,10 and combos thereof, my plastic ball made a TON of difference.

There's something nice about the oil pattern not making a difference on your spares. I used to hook around the 10 on dry back ends and it gets frustrating.

Are you bowling mostly at PSB still? Have you thought about PBA experience league?

makes sense.

we're still at psb...with the league discount it doesn't make much sense to bowl other places.
