Had a good outing at a 40 & Over Scratch tournament yesterday.

Format was matchplay each game with 30 bonus pins with a win against your opponent.

Started off a bit rough, but collected myself and ran off 6 great games winning each of them. Couple games I needed to strike out to close out my opponent and did so.


So through 7 games I was in 5th place, 8th game was a position round game. This would then set the Top 4 for a stepladder format. Unfortunately, I was on the toughest pair that we had been bowling on all day long.

Went 191 in last game and lost my match. Shooting this low score also pushed me just barely out of the last cashing spot by 20 pins. I settled for 7th place.

Oh well. I was able to notice transition in the games leading up to game 8, but just couldn't fight the lane to get a better score out of it. Always a good experience to go up against some great scratch bowlers. Some really great

The eventual winner of the tournament was John Burkett over Chris Johnson.
