    Default Boatmans 2022-2023 season

    Zen Soul all night but had to throw too slow in first game to get it to bite. Picked it up about 1.5 MPH games 2 and 3. Had 12 in a row between games 2 and 3 but spare shooting wasn't too good. 638 but should have been 660 or so.

    Game 2: 245 (10 strikes, 1 spare, 1 open-1 split)

    Big change from last week. No miss room at all. Both teams struggled except for a guy on the other team that rolled a 300-811. I started with the Zen Soul and could strike when I hit the pocket but every few shots the ball wold take off through the nose. Tried the Helios and same thing. They have a guy on the other team with a 225 average that is a high rev 1 hand lefty and he was having similar issues. He only rolled a 615 and was telling me some of the things he tried. There were tons of splits tonight on all lanes. In fact a guy a few lanes down picked up the 7-10 tonight.

    Game 1: 182 (5 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens-2 splits)

    Game 2: 174 (6 strikes, 2 spares, 3 opens-1 split)

    Game 3: 163 (4 strikes, 3 spares, 3 opens)

    Man I really need to get this figured out. My 1st games after 3 weeks are 169, 182, 179. Average is 194 right now.

    So started the night with the Altered Reality targeting the 10 board. Same thing as last week. As long as I didn't get inside 2nd arrow I was good. Any bit inside of that and it would go Brooklyn. Timing and form felt really good all night. 2nd game switched to the Zen Soul. Same thing but 3rd game I moved 1.5 boards eight so was standing about 23 and targeting 10 at the arrows and about 7 at the breakpoint and that was working well. 225 last game.

    Had 7 splits tonight. One of the league guys came down and said the last 6 lanes were polluted with splits. We were on the end pair. I know our pair had to have had at least 25-30 splits between the 2 teams.
    My spare game was pretty good other than my splits. I was 5/5 on single pin spares and 6/7 on makeable spares.

    Game 1: 179 (6 strikes, 1 spare, 4 opens-3 splits)

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

    Game 3: 225 (7 strikes, 2 spares, 1 open-1 split)

    Series: 583

    Average: 194.33

    Running average: 193.33

    Last years average: 196.35

    First ball average: 9.15

    Strikes: 55% (19/34)

    Spares: 42% (6/14)

    Single pin spares: 100% (5/5

    Splits: 0% (0/7)

    A little better tonight but should have been even better. Missed a few spares that I shouldn't have and in crucial places. Finally had a good start. Been struggling in game 1 until tonight. In the past my first game was my best.
    Lanes were a little wetter that usual. Used the Zen Soul all 3 games. Our team bowled well but we still only won 1 of 3. Our scratch scores were 1047, 996 and 1031. Theirs were 948, 952 and 1036 but we were giving them 66 pins per game so we only took the first game.

    Game 1: 235 (9 strikes, 2 spares, 1 open - 1 split)

    Game 2: 202 (6 strikes, 2 spares, 2 opens)

    Game 3: 218c (7 strikes, 4 spares, 0 opens)

    Series: 655

    Average: 218.33

    Running average: 199.58

    Last years average: 196.35

    First ball average: 9.52

    Strikes: 66% (22/33)

    Spares: 72% (8/11)

    Single pin spares: 85% (6/7)

    Splits: 0% (0/1)

    Yeah we are 4 weeks in and my last week of summer league I rolled 893 4 game series then first week of fall rolled 638 3 game series so thought I found something. Then followed that up with 519 and 583...lol. But then the 655 last night. The nights I'm on seem so easy then I follow that up with a low 500.

    Rough night. Very tight line. Lanes were pretty slick and as the night went on my ball was hooking less and less. Nobody was throwing urethane but seemed like there may have been carry down. Used the Zen Soul all night. Won the first game and total pins. On a positive note was 3/3 on 7 pins but missed a 5 pin and a few other spares I shouldn't have missed.

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


    Game 2: 203 (7 strikes, 2 spares, 2 opens)

    Game 3: 197 (4 strikes, 5 spares, 1 open)

    Average: 191.67
