    Thursday Men's League: THS

    563 Series: 161-190 (clean)-212

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 8.85 pins
    Strikes: 38%
    Spares: 80% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 77% (7/9)
    Most common single-pin leave: 6-pin (4x)
    Also left a single 5-pin, 9-pin, and 10-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 81% (9/11)
    Most common multi-pin leave: 6-10 and 1-2 (2x each).

    Splits: 0% (0/2)

    Average over 3 games: 187.67.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 195.33.

    First game struggles continue. This time was kinda my fault because I showed up late and didn't get any practice time. Three opens, but two of them were splits. Just never got lined up right.

    Game 2 was more of the same. Good spare shooting, but just never really got lined up where I had a good strike line.

    After 2 frames in Game 3, I switched to the Warning Sign. Made a stupid move right to try and compensate for the weaker Warning Sign...but it was too far right and it took me most of Game 3 to get lined back up. Struck out with a 5-bagger to finally get a respectable score.

    Only 4 opens and I average 187?? Sometimes this can be a cruel sport!

    187 average with four opens sounds about right. The maximum score without striking is 190, and unless you can put strikes together, a strike is realy only worth a few pins more than a spare. Think about a dutch 200, five strikes and itís only 200.

    I didn't say I scored it wrong...only that I didn't like it.

    Thursday Men's League: THS

    576 Series: 193-208-175

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 8.85 pins
    Strikes: 51%
    Spares: 62% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 66% (4/6)
    Most common single-pin leave: 6-pin (2x)
    Also left a single 2-pin, 4-pin, 5-pin, and 10-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 60% (6/10)
    Most common multi-pin leave: n/a (1x each).

    Splits: 0% (0/1)

    Average over 3 games: 192.00.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 199.00.

    4 out 5 shots struck on the right lane...only 1 out of 6 on the left lane. Decided to get a little "balsy"...and started throwing a different ball on each lane. The "one" strike on the left lane was a result of that change. Missed 4-pin in the 1st frame away from a clean game.

    Game 2, 4 out of 5 strikes on that left lane...but only 3 out of 6 strikes on the right lane.

    Made some adjustments and struck 4 out of 5 times on the right lane...but only 1 out of 6 shots on the left side were strikes.

    Won 3 out of 4 points against my opponent, so I guess it wasn't a bad night. I kinda got used to having a clean game, so it feels a bit disappointing despite the higher average.

    Thursday Men's League: THS

    Last night of the season roll-off. I don't think it actually counts toward my average.

    445 Series: 141-156-148

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 8.47 pins
    Strikes: 31%
    Spares: 40% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 62% (5/8)
    Most common single-pin leave: 4-pin (5x)
    Also left a single 3-pin, 6-pin, and 10-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 28% (4/14)
    Most common multi-pin leave: 2-10 split (2x).

    Splits: 0% (0/5)

    Average over 3 games: 148.33.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 157.33.

    Game 1 was horrid spare shooting....missed 3 single-pins and just couldn't get a line to hold...constantly transitioning left.

    Game 2 I failed to pick up 4 multi-pin spares...including one in the 10th.

    Game 3 I finally started making better shots...but the ball change gave me dilemmas due to a recent surface adjustment...and 3 of the 4 opens on multi-pin leaves...were splits.

    I guess I'm glad there wasn't much money at stake. Bad spare shooting, faster than usual transitioning lanes, dealing with a ball surfacing issue that was unexpected, and far more splits than usual...that results in one of my three lowest series in this league and one of only 5 sub-450 series dating back to early August 2016.

    Unless your league does a special fun night like 9-pin no tap, then your season end/sweeper/roll-off or whatever it's called does count toward your average. Common misconception that is covered by USBC rule 113b 2. 2. Games are counted toward individual averages.

    Wednesday Miller/Coors Trios League: THS

    This is the "party" week before the league starts...this is gonna be my primary summer league.

    595 Series: 195-224 (clean)-176

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 8.76 pins
    Strikes: 36%
    Spares: 90% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 80% (8/10)
    Most common single-pin leave: 10-pin (3x)
    Never left a single 1-pin, 5-pin, nor 8-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 100% (11/11)
    Most common multi-pin leave: 2-4 and 2-5 (2x each).

    Splits: N/A

    Average over 3 games: 198.33.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 205.67.

    Game 1 was a missed 4-pin in the 2nd frame away from a clean game. Game 3 was a missed single 6-pin away from a clean game and a strike on the first ball of the 10th away from an all-spare game.

    First time bowling in this center and not on fresh conditions. This is a smaller, 24-lane center...a little hard for me to see the boards as the lanes are very light and the lights are bright.

    I needed to move about 3.5 left with my feet and 1.5 left with my eyes to start things off. Not sure if it is the center or just that it isn't fresh conditions. Also had to move my target out to the arrows...versus just above the dots. Made my 2:2 move right in Game 2 and started using the Warning Sign. Also needed to move my target midway between the dots and arrows. Switched to the Scandal Pearl in Game 3, but had to move 1 board right with my eyes and 2 boards right with my feet...and move my target back to the arrows.

    I think I need to put the Scandal Pearl in the dishwasher. It has really been underwhelming lately. Maybe I'll wait until my Siaair pad shipment arrives.

    I was worried I might not be good enough for this league...because it is a mix of head-to-head scratch and handicap...but it's only a 6-team league and of the 9 (of 18) bowlers that showed up for the party...only 2 of them could match me.

    Wednesday Miller/Coors Master's Trios League: THS

    624 Series: 180-213 -231

    PinPal Stats:
    First Ball Average: 9.15 pins
    Strikes: 52%
    Spares: 68% picked up

    Single Pin spares: 77% (7/9)
    Most common single-pin leave: 2-pin, 4-pin, and 10-pin (2x each)
    Never left a single 1-pin, 6-pin, 7-pin, nor 8-pin.

    Multiple Pin spares: 57% (4/7)
    Most common multi-pin leave: n/a.

    Splits: 0% (0/1)

    Average over 3 games: 208.00.
    Average had I picked up all single-pin spares: 212.33.

    The first game I had to adjust to fresh conditions having never bowled league in this house before. When I bowled on burnt conditions I was standing a little left a center and targeting the 2nd arrow. But, on fresh, I needed to move a little right of center and target a board right of the second arrow. Made a really awful shot in the 4th and left a 1-2-6-10 washout...and missed a 10-pin in the 7th. Missed a 4-pin on the final ball of the 10th as well.

    In Game 2, everything was going well...I just had a tendency to miss right every now and again. My only open was a missed 6-10 in the 5th. By the end of the game, I felt like a ball change was in order. I must have been right...and made the right adjustment when I balled down...because it led to a triple to close out the 10th.

    In Game 3, I continued to put another trio of strikes together...so 6 straight strikes after the ball change...but then ran into trouble as the lanes were really starting to transition. I decided to switch to the Scandal Pearl in the 8th and, again, must have been the right choice...because I rattled off 3 straight strikes. Could have tied my opponent and taken 3.5 points (rather than just 3)...but I made a bad second shot in the 10th and ended with a 9 /.

    This is the first scratch league I've ever bowled in and was worried I might not be good enough to compete...but it's only 5 teams and thus far I've held my own. I even outscored our #3 bowler in 2 out of 3 of the games...and he came in averaging 7 pins higher than I do normally.

    The scoring is scratch individual (games and series) and handicap for total games and series. We ended up taking like 14 out of 17. Our most likely competition is going to come from the team of old ladies what were putting up 180-221 games on the pair next to us. Those ole birds can roll!! And I don't mean that in a derogatory way...they are really talented....super consistent...very effortless swings, consistent speeds, consistent approaches, near perfect spare shooting, etc... It would SHOCK me if they haven't won senior ladies awards (many of them) numerous times in recent history.

    Gonna leave the ball surfaces alone for now. I will probably resurface again in 1-3 weeks...try to get the progression to work without having to adjust right when making the ball change...but right now the changes with adjustments are working.
