Monday I shot 290 3rd game. WITH A GUTTERBALL FIRST FRAME. Ditch, then 12 racks in a row. Shot 738

Last night I had 18 strikes in a row from the first game to the second. 280, 241, ............... 169 for a 690. Split split split. Pocket 7-10 to start the third.

My practicing is starting to pay off. But my arm swing is still coming behind me do to my open shoulders without opening my arm.

Release is key with me. Reason I'll throw a sudden gutterball or get it out too far is because of early release and not being a straight back swing.

I'll get there.


Welcome Jordan,

That's really cool. TJ has my favorite approach out there. He does bring the ball straight back but he also ends up having to whip around from behind him like I do. He pulls in a bit after the draw back. Great game. Wish I had his consistency.

Awesome. It is pretty cool to be able to say you beat Tommy Jones.

Last Saturday I got new shoes along with having my bowling ball resurfaced. Sunday was my league, 2nd game had the first 8 when a ball "accidentally" drops behind me. Oh well I still hit pocked but left a split. Ended up throwing a 245 opening the 9th and 10th. Shot a 624 series. First game was a 174 and 3rd was a 205.

BUUUUMMMMPPPP

It's summer so I'm home from college bowling again.... 4 weeks in, i've bowled 3 of them. Shot in order: 612 <--- first 3 games since Christmas, 643, and a 684 last week.

Feels good to be back although my arm doesn't feel the same

I'm battling lower ab/groin strain. Been having to stand close and take little slide. (hoping it's not a hernia) Ball speed is down so while my first game I can muscle it the lanes break down and I can't get the ball through the dry.

Averaging 205 and 201 on two leagues so far this summer.

That's not good! Sounds like a break from bowling might be in order til you get all healed up!

I shot 606 last night. WITH a 220 in the final game.

I fouled too. I've fouled 3 times in the last 3 weeks. The first three times I have EVER in my life fouled.

But it's because I"m having to stand closer to not take a long lunge to slide.

Yeah a different approach will always mess you up...along with busting your ass lol

I was bowling the Teen Masters national tournament in Vegas a few years back... after the first 3 games on the long pattern I was sitting in 12th place out of 100+, went to the other side of the house (where afterwards I saw easy slide all over the table) and on the first ball I slipped, fouled, and busted my ass I never got comfortable again and ended up going -ALOT and missed the cut.
