I have a new knee, so I've taken the summer off. Is anyone bowling in a
sport league this summer? We have a league here where they put down the Pros
shots, but it's 9- pin so no one gets their ego damaged.

I am getting my ego bashed around pretty good by the scorpion pattern
right now. The place I bowl at gives you a card loaded with a bunch of
games good for the summer, so I go and shoot without the scorers...much
less of an ego bashing.
I do not seem to be getting any better though (sheepish grin).

Ah! a student of the "Lamont Cranston" bowling technique?

Actually, the Denny Torgerson technique. He's better known as "Torgy" from
Bowling This Month. He lived here for about 18 years and I learned a lot
from him. He owned the lanes for about 8 years. At his suggestion I
practiced for an hour twice a week with no pins. I took my average from the
low 170's to around 205. :)

Hey Dar, I may be showing my age (not actually, because I wasn't born until the mid '50s), but Lamont Cranston was the alter ego of a fictional character known as "The Shadow."


Cheers,
Turtlelover (who should follow your lead about practicing without pins!)

Hang in there. This fall you should see an improvement in your accuracy. On
normal house conditions that should give you the improvement you're looking
for.
I always used to shadow bowl when I practiced so that I could
concentrate on how the ball felt leaving my hand and how it moved on the
lane. I wanted to throw a good ball, not count pins.

Don't be fooled! even in 9-pin, you STILL have to get the ball to the
pocket (or at least to the Kingpin) to get at least 9 pins down. Play
it on a PBA (or similar) shot, and it's just as hard as regular tenpin
bowling.

True, the "PBA shot" 9-pin scores will be higher than in regular
tenpin, but they'll still be LOWER than 9-pin played on the THS
(Typical House Shot)... :)
