    Tough conditions tonight. Hit the pocket pretty consistently but kept leaving corner pins. Tried the Zen Soul, Igniter and Raw Hammer pearl. Moved as far left and right as I was comfortable with. No change. Both teams struggled with the exception of 1 or 2 guys. Sucks going from a 733 Sunday to a 559 tonight. Even worse considering I was throwing the ball pretty well.

    Rough night. No oil at all. It was very warm in there so not sure if that was why or if there was an issue with the machine but it wasn't just our pair. Started with the Zen Soul then tried the Raw Hammer pearl then the Helios. Couldn't keep any of them on the left side of the head pin. Even threw the T-Zone. Stood in the same spot I normally stand with my Zen Soul and threw it a little harder than usual and it hooked right into the pocket but had no power behind it. No strikes in 3rd game with the Helios (short pin) so 9th frame went back to the Zen Soul and moved in and threw hard and struck in the 9th, 10th and 11th. Hit the pocket in the 12th but left a 7 pin. We lost game 1 but won games 2 and 3 and total pins.
    10th frame killed me tonight. And only 12 strikes all night. I average about 19-20 strikes per night so struggled there.

    Game 1: 211 (5 strikes, 4 spares, 1 open-1 split)

    Game 2: 183 (4 strikes, 4 spares, 3 opens-1 split)

    Game 3: 193 (3 strikes, 7 spares, 1 open)

    So-so night. Team started out great but then a few teammates started struggling and we lost games 2 and 3. I was pretty consistent but had a few screw-ups too. I had my Zen Soul at 3000 and Altered Reality at 2000. Lanes were a little wet. ZS wouldn't hook. Threw the AR till about the 7th frame of game 1 then tried the ZS till about middle of game 2 then back to the AR. On a positive note I was 100% on single pin spares.

    Game 1: 210 (6 strikes, 4 spares, 1 open)

    yeah. took me 2 games to figure out there was no oil...lol. i could get to the pocket with the ZS but it was a very tight line. The Helios seems to always be a struggle but tried it anyway

    Another tough night. 202-165-176. Since last time I resurfaced my Zen Soul I'm only averaging 186 with it. Prior to that I was averaging 204 with it. Gonna touch it up with a new 3000. The one I used last time was a little worn

    Started off good. Couldn't hit the pocket in warmups but made a move at the start of game 1 and found something. Used Zen Soul all night after hitting it with a slightly worn 2000 (my 3000's are too far gone and ordered new pads yesterday). Hit a tough stretch in the middle frames. Game 2 much of the same. Kept it clean. Game 3 slipped in first frame then tugged 2nd frame. 3rd frame was too fast then finally got it right. Splits and opens killed that game.

    Still a good week. If you could stay away from the bad shots and misses could have been 700. I had a similar week went 153 with three opens no doubles and a bunch of horrible counts then went 258, 236 with no opens. This has been my season so far. Still you had a good night. Steve

    So I should be thrilled with my night but although it was good I got worse each game. Ordered new CtD pads so freshened up my Zen Soul with a brand new 3000. We were on the end pair. First game started with 10 strikes then missed inside in the 11th for a 287. 2nd game was good except for a couple of frames. 227. Game 3 I struggled in the right lane oe a couple of frames then moved in a couple of boards with my eyes and feet to salvage a 208 after leaving the big 4.

    Never rolled a 300 before and was right there. Wasn't nervous.

    Up until my return in 2018 my highs were about 265/660. A couple of years ago I rolled a 279 and a 725 in different weeks. In the past 6 weeks I have rolled 290, 287 and 279 with 733, 722 and last weeks tournament rolled 1239 over 6 games with 3 games in the 240's. Just a matter of time before I get that 300. Bowled about 50 games with the Zen Soul so far and averaging 207 with it. Take out about 6 games where I had the wrong surface on it due to not having the right pads and over those 40-ish games I'm averaging 218 with it. Just matches up to my game really well.

    Game 1: 287c (10 strikes, 1 spare)

    Game 2: 227 (9 strikes, 2 spares, 1 open-1 split)

    Game 3: 208 (7 strikes, 3 spares, 1 open-1 split)
