    I will say Boatman, when you do evolve and adapt you're going to feel like a whole new person on the lanes. You'll be amazed at what you see.

    I had a situation one time when I was in the last few frames of a not-so-good game, when two of the best bowlers in the place walked up and started watching me bowl. I felt a lot of pressure to get it right, and ended up striking out in the 10th frame. That was the first and only time I ever did that. I tried repeating it many times after that, standing where I stood and throwing for the same board, and ended up throwing a gutter ball.

    Point being, sometimes all that is needed to squeeze out the inner bowler is a little bit of pressure.

    One night several months ago I was really struggling. Teammate called one of the top bowlers over that is also a lefty to watch to see if he could see anything I was doing wrong. Next ball was dead in the pocket strike. He looked at my teammate and said 'looked good to me'...lol
