I looked like a sandbagger last night.....

I had the worst start to any season I can remember. The first two weeks of bowling(only bowling one league at the moment) were just awful. My timing was screwed up and I couldn't repeat shots to save my life. I had 587 and 577 to start the first two weeks. After the first week, I started practicing without my improvement. Then, last Thursday I figured out my timing and started to actually bowl well. Last night, off a 194 average, I shot 741. Its people like me that shows leagues should start the season with last years book for the first 3 weeks. It was purposeful bagging, but I averaged near 220 in the house last year.

All that said, the high set in our league was 650 after 2 weeks.....and we have some very accomplished bowlers. I guess I wasn't the only one struggling.

Re: I looked like a sandbagger last night.....

I did my sandbagging impersonation as well, though not as bad. I'm typically a 180s-190s bowler these days, but started the year with a 486 and a 520. Last night I was able to pick up all of my single pin spares and throw a few more strikes for a 620.

Sounds like I made an adjustment and everything fell into place....which is sorta true but it took a good bit of practice to dial it in.

I got back into it again after 5 months. First time back I'm always okay, sometimes I'll bowl high games or low games, but it's comfortable. BUTTTTT, the next time I bowl, all my timing and alignment and angle and release is all off.
