    Default The Masters

    Great show. No two handers, no foreigners and only one lefty. Looked like old style not modern no lifting except Anderson.

    Back in the eighties, the commentators were always talking about getting enough “lift” on the ball. The modern style may require lofting after the guys with massive rev rates throwing very agressive balls have stripped the heads of oil, but it does not require lift.

    By the way, who won?

    They are all bowlers no? Why single out the 3 categories?

    Was a great show. Was pulling for Kloempken.

    Had 2 guys I bowl a few tourneys with in the finals in Alex Hoskins and Steve Kloempkin. Both are EXCEPTIONAL bowlers, and both know the ins and outs of their equipment like the back of their hand. They know how to get their equipment to do exactly what they need them to do. Not knocking anyone else on the show, especially Andrew Anderson (kid throws a hell of a ball). But Rhino didn't stand a chance being the 5 seed on fresh. He needed the oil to break down more than it did to give him a look. As for Joey Pants...can't stand the dude in the first place (prolly cuz I'm a 2-hander), but he had a chance to seal the deal and let Kloempkin slide out. As for fordman1 here...I think someone may be a little racist. Why does having a 2 hander, let alone a FOREIGNER, have anything to do with bowling?

    It didn't, it's just bait to see how many nibble on it.

    So I'll cut the line.
