    Default another sub par night

    Geez. Just can't get it. Started out targeting 6 or 7 board. Could hit the pocket but leaving 1 or 2 pins. Moved in to the 9 board and started getting the carries but wasn't as consistent with my line. 4th game moved back to the outside and it was better. Used the Conspiracy all night except a couple shots with the Kingpin. Team lost the first 3 games and won the 4th. We are struggling.

    Game 1: 181 (5 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens-1 split)

    Game 2: 177 (5 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens-1 split)

    Pretty good night but still disappointed. Missed alot of shots I should have got. Used the Conspiracy all night and targeted the 6-7 board at the arrows all night. Only had to move about 1/2 board all night. Spare shooting was very good but struggled to throw strikes until the 4th game. We won all 4 games and got a bonus point to go 11-0 tonight. We get a bonus for beating a team by 60 and 2 bonus points for beating a team by 100. We won game 2 by 62. Game 1 was clean. 198c, 179, 171, 225. Struck in the right lane every frame in game 1 but no strikes in the left lane until 1/2 way through game 2.

    Game 1: 198 (5 strikes, 5 spares, 0 opens)

    Game 2: 179 (3 strikes, 6 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Well pretty much bowled my average for the night but game 3 really bothered me. When I got there I decided to hit my Black Widow Gold with a 2000 by hand just to try it and have another option. Ended up using it all night. Tried the Conspiracy a few times but just couldn't find the pocket with it. I was targeting the 7 board but by the end of game 3 I started leaving alot of 4's and 6's and the line was getting tight, meaning very little room for error. To start game 4 I tried the Conspiracy and small adjustments but mid-game I moved in to the 10 board and started hitting the pocket and getting carries. We won 3 of 4 and got a bonus point for winning a game by over 60. Pretty happy with my night overall except game 3 when the pocket was playing hide and seek.

    Game 1: 175 (4 strikes, 5 spares, 2 opens)

    Game 2: 215 (8 strikes, 3 spares, 1 open)

    Game 3: 145 (3 strikes, 4 spares, 4 opens)

    Game 4: 189 (4 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens-1 split)

    Another frustrating night. Just couldn't get anything to work. Only 14 strikes in a 4 game series and missed too many spares. To top it off our opponents bowled unbelievably all night. I wasn't as consistent as I should have been but even when I did hit the pocket I was leaving corner pins. Tried both the Kingpin and the Conspiracy, inside and outside, varied my ball speed, tried different releases, pinky spread, pinky tight, pinky tucked. Nothing worked.

    Game 1: 170 (3 strikes, 6 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 2: 193 (4 strikes, 6 spares, 1 open)

    Game 3: 167 (3 strikes, 5 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 4: 183 (4 strikes, 5 spares, 2 opens)

    Single pin spares: 76% (10/13)

    Splits 50% (1/2)

    Finally a good night. Best overall night since my return. The lanes have been drier this summer so hit my BWG with a 4000 pad right before we started and used it all night. I did try the others in warmups but decided to stick with the BWG until it didn't work. I hit the pocket more consistently but still struggled with spares. Still ended with an 863 4 game series. Teammate struggled a little but we still won 3 out of 4 and went 8-2 on the night. The 2nd set we bowled against one of my fall league teammates and the 4th game he wanted to bet scratch for a bottle out of the machine next week. I won 215-206...lol.

    I used the BWG all night because I realized my Conspiracy was burning up last week and leaving alot of corner pins. The BWG goes a little further before hooking so thought it might be better.

    Game 1: 245 (10 strikes, 1 spare, 1 open)

    Game 2: 202 (6 strikes, 1 spare, 3 opens)

    Well another night I should be happy with but I feel a little frustrated. Ended with an 802 (4 game series) so that is quite a bit better than my average but I still struggled. Game 1 just kept coming in light no matter what. Moved left, moved target left, moved target right. Slowed my speed. Still couldn't get back to the pocket. Ended up tucking my pinky and that got my ball rotating better but ended up moving way out to the 5 or 6 board to get it to come in. Strikes were hard to come by most of the night but my spare game was pretty good until the end of the last game. End of game 3 I left the 7 pin in the 8th and 10th frames on good pocket hits so I changed balls to start game 4 and it worked but missing spares killed that game. In the end we split the first 2 games against the owners daughter and her boyfriend then won the next 2 against the owner and his teammate. Oddly, the only game we lost we were 85 pins over our average...lol. I had a 234 and my teammate had a 224 and our averages were 185 and 187.The owners daughter had a 258 and her teammate had a 225 (205 and 192 averages for them). We only lost by 5 but it was the best game we have had this year as a team.

    Game 1: 174 (2 strikes, 7 spares, 1 open - 1 split) - kept it clean until the 10th

    Game 2: 234 clean (7 strikes,5 spares)

    Game 3: 213 (5 strikes, 5 spares, 1 open) clean until the 10th

    Game 4: 181 (4 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens)

    Series: 802

    Average: 200.5

    Single pin spares: 76% (10/13)

    Well not too impressed with tonight. Struggled to hit the pocket all night. Can't blame the ball or lanes, I was just inconsistent. I wasn't even supposed to bowl tonight as we have a 3 man rotation for a 2 man team but I still go and hang out. Pulled in about 45 minutes before league started like I usually do and my phone rings. Teammate asks if I will be there. Told him yep, just pulled in. He tells me his car won't start so he probably won't make it. Problem is him and his son are my teammates and they are together...lol. So I hurry back home to get my bag and the son shows up just as we are starting the first game. The last 2 weeks I have had an 863 and 802 (4 game set). Tonight I struggled to fins the pocket and had a 720. Still not too bad but I'm not happy with that. On the bright side we bowled the PSO and the league President (216 and 209 averages) the first set and split but they got total pins. 2nd set we bowled the owners son and his teammate (221 and 219 averages). We split the 2nd set too and won total pins so went 5-5 tonight. Niot bad considering who we bowled but I know we had to have lost a few spots in the standings. We were in 12th (39 teams) and seems the whole top 15 teams lately has been getting 8-12 points a night.

    Game 1: 169 (3 strikes, 6 spares, 2 opens)

    Game 2: 170 (4 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens)

    Single pin spares: 85% (12/14)

    Another night where I bowled really good but I leave disappointed. Rolled 194, 222, 190, and 267 but games 1 and 3 have no idea how I ended up that high. Felt like I was around 170's. Missed way too many spares tonight. My previous high game was 266 way back in the late 90's so beat that and had 2 opens that game. Used the Conspiracy the first 3 games and struggled to hit the pocket and couldn't get the carry. Late 3rd game switched to the Black Widow Gold and still no luck. 2nd frame in the 4th game I tucked my pinky and ran off 9 in a row.

    We were in 14th place out of 39 teams. Only 12 teams make playoffs. Tonight we bowled the 4th place team then the 3rd place team. We won both against the first team and split against the 2nd team and they got total pins so went 7-3 tonight. Just checked and we are in 11th place now.

    Game 1: 194 (5 strikes, 5 spares, 1 open)

    Game 2: 222 (8 strikes, 1 spare, 2 opens)

    Game 3: 190 (5 strikes, 5 spares, 2 opens-1 split)

    Game 4: 267 (9 strikes, 0 spares, 2 opens)

    Spares: 61% (11/18)

    Single pin spares: 63% (7/11)

    Splits: 0% (0/1)
