Bowling out of my mind- 2 300's in two weeks!

Last September, I bowled my first 300. I flirted with it a couple of times in a couple of leagues through the rest of that fall season and in the one summer league.

Monday, October 9th I got my 2nd, and almost my first 800 series. I bowled so well that night- a 243, 300, 244 for a 787. It is my new high series, but SO CLOSE!! If I had only punched out in the first game, or switched balls for the 3rd game, maybe... I didn't want to change balls because it (Storm Alpha Crux) read so well the 300 game, I couldn't switch. But I started 7- spare, then 4-7-10 spilt. Changed balls to my IQ Nano (bowled 1st 300 with that ball last year), and almost punched out from there. Had a 10 pin in the 8th, but the rest strikes. I am not sure if I will ever get my 800. I don't know if I can bowl any better than that night...

Then, this past Monday, I got my 3rd 300 in the last game of my set. Didn't really bowl that well. I let nerves get to me a little because I have the highest average in this league after weeks- 236. I have never been top, and that is about 24 pins over average for me. So I started 197, 208 then my 300. I went back to my IQ Nano about half way through the 2nd game, and never looked back.

It tool so long to get my first. After that, I wasn't sure if I would ever get another. I couldn't have fathomed it would only take a week for my 3rd!!! Somebody joked that they would kick me out of the league if I do it again this coming Monday (jokingly).

Here is to all of you "800 Club-ers" out there. One day, maybe...

Congratulations on the great bowling!

As a member of the 800 club, let me just assure you that if you are throwing the ball as good as it sounds like you are, then you are very capable of getting there.

Anytime you shoot a 780 or above, all it takes is one more carry to make it, as a spare in the middle of a string costs you 21 pins.

You change that 4-7-10 into a strike, and you go from having 25 that frame to having 50. You carry that tenpin in the 8th, and you shoot 265-808!

If you’ve thrown it good 30 times, you can make it 31, just believe you can do it.

A positive mindset is very important, more than many people think it is. BELIEVE!

Man, that is awesome. You are right... there were 3 or 4 times that night if one ball would have gone another way, I would have had it. Thanks for the encouragement!

When I was little, I used to watch bowling on Saturdays when it was on tv on ABC. I am talking like in the early and mid 80's. All I wanted to be was a pro bowler when I grew up.

I think I stopped bowling when I was about 16, in league anyway. They didn't have bowling in high school back then. I didn't pick the game back up until I was 34. When I was 36, I found a coach who really turned around my bowling. I never really thought I was ever going to get one. I would get close, but screw it up- nerves, etc. But I kept plugging along.

You do the same, you will get there. Good luck to you sir. Hope you join the club soon!!

Congrats! I left the game before I got one. 299 twice for me. Never got the 7 pin or 10 pin to fall. Maybe someday if I come back.
