    I had never been able to stand in the middle and belly it out but since we were in last in our summer league with no chance of doing any good I decided to use it as practice so worked on that. I can now stand on 25 and target 15 and hit the pocket. I'm still not as consistent as I need to be and had to slow my speed down but at least I have that in my bag if I need it.Before that I always balled down until I was at a weak core polished ball. Don't get me wrong, my ball doesn't move like Kyle Shermans but I can at least arc it out now. Before I could stand on about 13 and target 7 at the arrows but that was about as far out as I could arc it. So going from a 6 board arc to a 10 board arc is quite a difference.

    Tuesday Men's League: THS

    Third Week

    509 Series: 200-167-142

    Game 1 I had good carry. Be nice if I could learn how to make a spare more than 50% of the time...but a 200 is a 200.

    Two missed single pins...one in the first frame and one in the 10th frame. Touched my plastic ball 4 times...had 4 open frames.

    Game 3 I started to lose my line on the right lane and it looked like I needed to change balls. But, I didn't have a good option. By the time I figured out I needed to make the change, I had already opened twice. By the time I figured out what I needed to do with the Rhino Gold to hit the pocket, it was already the 10th frame. Another two missed single pins. Finally made one though...so, throw me a ******** party.

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 8.72 pins
    Strikes: 43%
    Spares: 41% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 20% (1/5)
    Most common single-pin leaves: 10-pin (2x)
    Also left a single 4-pin, 6-pin, and 7-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 50% (6/12)
    Most common multi-pin leave: 6-10 (3x)

    Splits: 0% (0/2)

    Average over 3 games: 169.67.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 183.00.

    As much as I knew it was going to disappoint Rob, I had to relinquish left of 2nd arrow and move outside and throw up the 8-board. I just couldn't do it. The Grudge Hybrid was too much ball in practice and too weak as soon as I moved inside the track. So, I just started with the Aura Mystic and it felt good up the 8-board.

    I don't know. I'm angry at the series. Another horrible performance. But, in retrospect, it was really the single-pin spare shooting that sunk that series. I could have averaged over 180 had I made 5 corner-pin spares. Instead, I missed 4 out of 5. Thats no acceptable. If I had the money, I'd be at the bowling center every evening rolling 3 games of low-ball practicing my spares until I fix this...but, I don't. At $5/game...practice can get pretty dang expensive pretty quick. There's a place nearby that has $3.50 games a few days a week...maybe I could try there.

    Tuesday Men's League: THS

    Fourth Week

    549 Series: 165-202-182

    Game 1, more struggles. Seemed like I finally figured things out midway through, but then I opened in the 10th.

    Game 2 things really seemed to start clicking. Unfortunately, a couple choice open frames kept the scoring down.

    Game 3 was only one open frame away from a clean game. Unfortunately, I could only manage a few strikes.

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 8.88 pins
    Strikes: 43%
    Spares: 61% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 71% (5/7)
    Most common single-pin leaves: 10-pin (3x)
    Also left a single 4-pin, 5-pin, 6-pin, and 7-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 54% (6/11)
    Most common multi-pin leave: 6-10 (3x)

    Splits: 50% (1/2)

    Average over 3 games: 183.00.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 190.33.

    A lot of my struggles seemed to come from rushing my push away and getting my timing messed up. Once I put more concentration into my set-up and push away, the timing miraculously improved. Funny how that happens.

    Sixth Week

    547 Series: 171-202-174

    Game 2 I switched to the Gold Rhino and, with the exception of a couple splits, had a pretty good game.

    Game 3 I had an open in the 1st frame, 5th frame, and 10th frame.

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 8.91 pins
    Strikes: 45%
    Spares: 52% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 66% (6/9)
    Most common single-pin leaves: 6-pin, 8-pin, and 10-pin (2x each)
    Also left a single 3-pin, 4-pin, and 7-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 37% (3/8)
    Most common multi-pin leave: n/a

    Splits: 0% (0/3)

    Average over 3 games: 182.33.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 193.33.

    Sat out last week, but picked up right where I left off two weeks ago. Spare shooting wasn't as good...but I ran some strikes together to keep the scoring high.
