Last night, went bowling with a few guys, and the lane guy put down the pattern known as Dead Man's Curve with the Kegel Lane Walker. Here's the description of the pattern:

I seemed to be fine playing straight up 7. If I tugged it and say missed a few boards to the right, the ball would grab too early, and I was looking at hitting high, or even brooklyn. A little left of target, or a little more speed, then I'm looking at something like the 3-9 or washout.

Shot 178-210-207 for the night.

Assuming you're right-handed... what you've described
sounds much like a misplayed over-block.
- adjust your feet vertically, and/or your grip's geometry.

Above all... be happy you STILL have a target to look at!

Cool pattern name... Just like the Jan and Dean song.

Sorry, if I come off a bit harsh here, but it's only because I'm no fan
of KEGEL, or any of the master manipulators of our once great sport.
Also, because I always seem to wind up the one on the SHORT END,
...of their pattern's highly descriptive term! ( catch my drift).
