    I'm not sure honestly. I've never watched myself bowl. Hell, for all I know, I look nothing like him when I bowl. That is just how I envision how I look when I bowl, something similar to his style. I have a small fear that if I ever watch myself bowl, I'll see something that I might think is really weird that I'm doing, and subconsciously try to correct it every time I bowl from that point forward, and consequently, will start bowling bad.

    I understand the other side to that argument though.. which is, maybe I'll notice I'm doing something wrong, correct it, and become better. I'll watch myself eventually. (When I'm on ESPN )

    The first time I watched myself, earlier this year, I saw about ten things wrong in ten seconds. I've tried correcting them and use the reaction videos to see if I have made any progress. Still get aggravated that I'm not seeing what I feel. It's no great wonder I suck so bad.

    Well, I officially have seen myself bowl now. Mike shot some video of me at the tourney today. Honestly, I was surprised at how much better my form looked, compared to how I thought it looked. I don't really think I look like Smallwood now. I'll upload some video here in a little while.

    I did notice some things I do wrong though. Specifically, It doesn't look like I'm ending at the same spot every time. Could be a HUGE reason why I don't always hit my mark. Now that I know, hopefully I can correct the problem, and I can become much more accurate and hit my mark more often.

    Glad to hear both things. That you don't look goofy AND identified an issue.
