Then throw your strike ball second. This will give you a chance at practicing those important spares, concistantly.

Good Luck
Thanks bud.....I am definately improving over the past 4 months of bowling.

Im still trying to figure out my best approach....so far ive been straight bowling this season but my buddies told me i have a backwards spin...but was doing good 150s-180s.....in practice last night i was doing horrible only up until the 6th frame, never closed 1 single frame untill i went back to spinning the ball right to left, no strikes but they all left fantasic spares which i picked up.....so i have no F-ing Clue (other then drink)

YOu dont' want to throw a back-up ball. That's for the ladies.

But as long as you're enjoying yourself you can relax and get better on yo9ur bodies time.

Learn to hook the bowl from right to left. It is all in your arm and wrist position.

I watched some YouTube vids once.

I did watch a few years ago, freind of mine Todd Book made it on ESPN. But that's the only time I watched.

You've got a point! I'm hoping last week that I finally figured out my release point. Was pretty consistant all night. Couple tough ten pins missed. Still working on that.

12/9 186-196-167=549

12/16 157-154-140=451

12/30 132-115-129=376

1/6 174-179-147=500

Been a rough 2 weeks for me.

Averaging 210 at the 17 week mark and the next 2 weeks dropped me to 206. Games in the 130s and 140s 2 weeks in a row.

THAT would SUCK for me. Honestly, if I couldn't drink beer I might not even bowl.

Forgot to post scores from last week.

198 and 154.......Wow were the lanes a wreck that week. Everyone struggled.

Yesterday was better......245 finished with last 8 and then shot a 190 game as the right lane went away on me..........UGGGHHH.

Good news is my son is really starting to prove he can bowl. Now up to a 163 in both of his leagues. When he hits the pocket with his 13 lb ball he can put 10 in da pit with the best of them. He just needs to refine his single pin spares. His splits will kill him to. Seems to throw 1 or 2 a game as his strike ball will be slightly off and plow thru the nose.

Best compliment came yesterday as one of the other fathers told me he is very smooth thru his delivery. A chip off the ol block. Another couple years I will have to start entering some double tournaments with him.
