    I have seen an increase as well. My league went from one to about 8 players now roll them on a regular basis.

    So I got to go bowling today with my grandson.

    178/269/235 = 681. The operator at South Shore Lanes put out a house shot for me when I got there so I could play with the Phaze III (only had 9 games before the shutdown). He put out a 44 foot sweetheart of a shot. Played around the first game just to see where the ball wanted to be, and then let 'er rip. Held a strong 4-5 board sweet spot all the way through until about 4th frame of the third game. I pushed back over right 2 boards, and was right back on it. That ball touches the pocket, and it's pretty much over. By the time I was done, the kid behind the counter was telling me he's going to talk to his PSO and look into buying one. The most fun of the day, though? We had the bumpers up for the kid, and I was seeing how close I could get to touching the bumper while trying to make a 10 pin. Made three of the four, and that one just barely touched the bumper and missed the 10 by a 1/4".

    I will be one sore puppy tomorrow....

    Weekly Challenge/sport shot tourney at South Shore. First week joining in, and what do I get? Cheetah pattern.

    Qualifier--183/150/204 = 537 (22 pins per game handicap). Qualified me for 6th, which put me in the roll off, even though I had high game and high scratch series. The Phaze III was utterly useless during the qualifier. Used my ancient IQ Nano. Second game was hard to figure out where to go, but muddled through. Hey, got me in, right?

    1st game brackets. Matched up against a guy with the same handicap. I made less mistakes. 165 game.

    2nd game brackets. Yeah, handicap. Frankly, he deserved it. I absolutely ran out of gas. By then I was bowling with the Phaze, and I couldn't get enough out of that to get finish. Beat him scratch, but lost by 40+ pins after handicap.

    All in all, had fun. Never bowled on this shot in my life, and now I know why they say it's a bastard. Next week I'm told it will be a 48-50 foot pattern. Think the Phaze and myself will be showing up for this one!

    Weekly Wednesday sport/PBA shot tournament. I was introduced to Shark this week. If I never meet this bastard again, it'll be too soon.

    168/172/128 = 468. Two things. First, I don't own a ball suited to this pattern. Even knocking down the SureLock to 1500 yielded nearly no reaction. Second, it's a pretty good possibility that those factors were amplified by the fact that I'm not turning the ball as well as I used to. I started just throwing straight from the corner, which worked okay, but started to get iffy and of second game. Made the decision to move inside. Bad move. 6 pocket splits in the last game. At that point I knew I was done, and my bicep was killing me, so I just rode it out and went home. Live and learn. Next week they're doing a Nationals team shot. They said around 44 feet, and flat. Having never been to Nationals, anyone got advice?

    Weekly Wednesday sport/PBA shot tournament. Tonight was the 34' Del Ballard pattern. If this pattern is in any way indicative of Del's personality, he was not a nice man. (Met him, he is).

    160/135/161 = 456. This pattern is brutal. 34' of heavy oil, and then desert. This short pattern, you could get too far right, but that wasn't easy. And damn, if you missed left, goodbye. I didn't figure out what the pattern really wanted until well into the 3rd game, and that was to throw straight over 1st arrow, and to really make sure you roll right up the back of the ball. Wish I had come to that realization sooner. My spare shooting last night was atrocious as well. All in all not a great night, but definitely learned a lot. They've promised a longer pattern next week. Hopefully not Shark again.

    Out of all the couple of weeks I've joined this PBA shot tournament, this week was the most frustrating.

    170/179/186 = 535. Dick Weber pattern. I had the perfect ball, and set up on the perfect line. Unfortunately, the operator (me) could not make the first meet the second. If I hit my mark, it was strike city, save one ring 10. Past that, I was scattering shots all over God's green earth. The fact that I bowled better on the Cheetah pattern is a good indicator. At least that day I was consistent. Bowling like this wouldn't have worked on a house shot, let alone a PBA pattern. Absolute waste of a night. Only thing I learned is after 46 years of bowling, I still ain't there.

    Last tournament week. This week, 42' Scorpion.

    195/13/201 = 588. Shot played a lot like the Dick Weber pattern the week before. Difference this week was my control. Still threw some dumb shots, but for the most part stayed where I was supposed to. I was the only guy on my pair playing outside down and in, so I burned in my line nicely. Qualified 3rd. Got moved over 2 pairs for the step ladder, and found out in a hurry that no one on that pair had played outside. Started the game with three opens, all spare whiffs. Got the wheels put back on to hit a 173, but by then the other guy ran away with a 244. 4th place on the night. Learned a lot during these little tournaments, which I hope carries over to league this year.
