Kegel's "Highway to Hell"
The laneman had this pattern laid down from last night and he told me fool around with it. The pattern ended up making me look like a fool.
It's a flat 40' pattern oil 2 to38. Outside of 8 and it's not coming back. Outside of 4 is gutter. I first tried to attack it right down the 9-10 and I had one Jersey (I'm east of the Hudson) strike, 3 washouts and and some nose hits which left splits.
I tried the twig once, guttered, gave up and moved to the middle.
Next attempt was going 20 to 12 with more hand trying not to go past 10. I found some success there but was still inconsistant. There is no hold whatsoever if you missed inside and if I hit the 10 board, the ball would not recover.
I finally gave up, moved one pair over to the "Highway to Heaven" and stuck on 22 of 27. My ego was back to normal.
Has anyone played this pattern and what's the best way to attach it? The pattern seems to make the lane only about 28 boards and has very little room for error.
3 holes of fun!
