MY FIRST 297 and 800 SET!!!!!!!!

I was asked by one of my close friends grandma to bowl on her team as a sub. So I said sure, since I was going to bowl later anyways. No practice at all.

First ball dropped it a tad bit, went brooklyn struck.
The Next 8 were beautiful, power packed hits, like Big Steve Cook in the 81 Toc.
The 9, dropped the ball, went brooklyn, a pin came flying across the deck took out the 6 10.

In all actuality, I wasn't as nervous as you'd think.

10th ball threw a solid X 11th solid....

12th, threw it a tad bit wide, a little more speed, 2 8 10 split.

I got congradulations from the people we were bowling and the ones next to us. It felt good to have the whole league behind me. Rooting me on.

Next game, I start the first 6. Solid 10. Then X out for a 279.

Last game I had a regular ol 240.


The lil youngins I coach I've told them to have their hand relaxed in the ball. I've made that change in my game and I've been averaging well in the 2 teens. I have more speed and revs with a relaxed hand.

Congrats, Will, on the outstanding scores. Especially with no warm-up. The 297 is noteworthy enough, but the 800 set is incredible, and...........well..........they certainly don't give you those....They're earned.

Good job, and keep up the good work.

Sounds awesome! You only get in the 290s and 800s if you have the skill to make it there. Tough break on the shot in the 12th, but now you know you can get to that plateau.

I was throwing my Hammer Raw Anger. I had to switch to my Monster Green Pearl the last game, or move in deeper.

Thanks guys. I really wanted the last ball to strike, but oh well. I was smiling before I even threw the last ball lol.

Congrats, shooting 800 + is like shooting a scratch round of golf.  Not many can claim that.  300's are much more common and fall into the hole in one category......it can happen to anyone at any time.  Keeping it together for a set requires much more talent.  Nice going!
