    Back to the struggle bus. Been killing it lately and tonight started off continuing that trend...until the 2nd game. Tonight was position round. We started the night in 11th. First game threw a 7 bagger and opened in the 10th. Teammate bowled good all night. He had an 843 tonight (4 game set). I started off with the Conspiracy but wasn't consistent. Tugged a bunch of shots tonight. Early in game 2 I was starting to struggle so switched the the BWG and kept leaving pocket 7's (3 in a row at one point). Struggled with strikes and spares. Games 3 and 4 we switched to bowl a different team and I switched back to the Conspiracy. Seemed to be hitting better but still not good. Back to the BWG for game 4.

    Game 1: 245 (8 strikes, 1 spare, 1 open)

    Game 2: 158 (3 strikes, 3 spares, 4 opens)

    Game 3: 156 (5 strikes, 2 spares, 4 opens-1 split)

    Game 4: 155 (1 strike, 6 spares, 3 opens)

    Series: 714

    Average: 178.50

    Running average: 188.66

    First ball average: 8.88

    Strikes: 41% (17/41)

    Spares: 50% (12/24)

    Single pin spares: 54% (6/11)

    Splits: 0% (0/1)

    Playoffs tonight for summer league. We made it to the 2nd round of the bracket. Other team was on fire and knocked us off. Then next round they stumbled and bowled bad. Oh well.

    So bowled 3 games earlier today to pre-bowl for start of fall league. Bowled 172, 206, 218. So tonight bowled for summer league. Brackets were 2 game sets with total pins winning. First round I bowled 212 and 160. My teammate bowled really good and we won total by about 130 or so. Moved on to the 2nd round and I struggled. Teammate bowled decent but not great. I had 182 and 183. Lost the first game by 22 and the 2nd game they smoked us. They both had 5 baggers and won by about 60.

    First game I was hitting good. 2nd game I had 3 splits and couldn't find the pocket. 3rd game struggled till towards the end and struck out in the 10th to salvage a 182. 4th game was ugly till about the 6th frame then I found the pocket. Oh well

    Game 1: 212 (8 strikes, 3 spares, 1 open-1 split)

    Game 2: 160 (3 strikes, 4 spares, 3 opens-3 splits)

    Game 3: 182 (5 strikes, 5 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 4: 183 (6 strikes, 1 spare, 4 opens-1 split)

    Series: 737

    Average: 184.25

    Strikes: 48% (22/45)

    Spares: 56% (13/23)

    Single pin spares: 58% (7/12)

    Splits: 16% (1/6)

    If I'm reading that printout properly...you had a problem on one lane and not on the other. I think you struck twice as often on one lane versus the other...assuming you bowled all 4 games on the same pair.

    2 different pairs. In the summer league we bowl 2 against 1 team then move and 2 against another team. Wasn't much of a left/right problem. Maybe a little in the first set because we were on 1 and 2 so it is possible lane 1 played with my head a little but games 3 and 4 we were on 9/10.
    More than anything I just struggled to hit the pocket consistently. Game 1 I was on but then they transitioned and it took me awhile to figure it out. Ball was just hooking too hard and leaving corner pins. Near the middle of game 4 I untucked my pinky and that put it right back in the pocket. For the last 4 weeks or so I have been leaving my pinky tucked all night and been doing really good. Didn't think about untucking it until I tried everything else and even then it took a little while to even think about it.
