As you guys know I keep some pretty detailed stats when I bowl, not just on scores, but also spares, strikes, per game stats, etc. For example, here is last year's stats. So, after 132 games during the 2015-2016 season, here are my numbers:

Other Interesting Stats:
I had 5 nights I was 100% perfect on single pin spares, however I also had 3 nights I missed every multi-pin spare I attempted.
I left the 9-10 once (first time in 5 years of tracking spares) and converted it.
I was 2/3 on the 5 pin.
I picked up the 2-8-10 just as many times as the 2-10 (once each).
My best strike percentage for one night was 73.91%, scoring my personal highest series of 784 (988 for 4 games). The very next week I also threw a strike percentage of 73.91%, but only scored 697 (934 for 4 games) because I converted 33% fewer spares.
Best spare conversion rate for one night was 83.33% (784 night). Worst was 28.57% (710 series, 855 for 4 games).
For a 4 week period (March 8th through April 5th) I averaged 237.31 over 16 games.
For a 3 week period (September 1st - 15th) I averaged 194.33 over 12 games.
Last season I never threw a gutter on the first ball, this season I did it 6 times (and converted it 4 times).

Year-over-year: (Last season to this season, +/-)
Average: 213.88 to 214.32, + 0.5
High Game: 278 to 279, +1
High Series: 710 to 784, +74
High 4 game series: 927 to 988, +61
Low Game: 126 to 125, -1
Low 4 game series: 661 to 712, +51
Clean Games: 11 to 24, +13

(Total numbers not comparable due to bowling 24 fewer games last season)
Strike Percentage: 61.98% to 60.99%, -1%
Spare conversions: 60.05% to 61.03%, +1%
Single pin spares: 79.91% to 81.79%, +1.88%
Multi-pin spares: 41.07% to 39.08%, -2%
Split conversions: 15.24% to 9.01%, -6.23%

Spares:

4 pin: 75.86% to 87.50%, +11.64%

Biggest differences in spares year-over-year involved the 3, 6, and 10 pins.

Worse average since the late 1970's.
                Wed     Fri
2012/13     213     200  Tore hamstring slide leg
2013/14     198     194  hard to get knee bend
2014/15     194     192  scared to get knee bend
2015/16     180     186  Installed new Brunswick anvil lanes
                                   shot was stupid hard unless you had a lot of speed and a lot of hand.

Left a ton of one pin spares made about 65-70% of tens 90% of other one pin spares.
chopped about 50% of 3-6-10's.
Left a ton of splits and threw more gutter balls in one year than in the last 10yrs.
Over under was very common. 
About 30% of the league had checkmarks because they were under the 10 pin drop rule.
My guess is 75% of league was down this year.
So if you can throw hard with a lot of hook you get a 15 pin bonus.[frown]

Good stuff!  
Everyone..................please share a season summary even if you don't keep detailed stats.  If you did keep these stats, even better!! Please share them!   How many leagues did you bowl?  What was your high series?...high game? Were you happy with your bowling progress?  Did you improve, or regress into a funk?  Any funny stories to share?



I bowled in 3 leagues and was happy with my play right up to around the Christmas Holidays.   Then I slumped pretty much to the end.........LOL  My averages were between 215-220 in each league around the midpoint of the season, and then a downward slide began.   

My final averages at season end:
Monday     : 203
Wednesday: 209
Thursday   : 210

High series: 760
High Game: 289

Low Series:  482  
Low Game:  I'm pretty sure it was a 140s game, but I won't rule out the 130s..LOL

Summer league starts in  1.5 weeks!! ...the week after next!  I am THRILLED this season is finally behind me, but I am equally excited to start fresh with a new league in less than 2 weeks!!

I print out my scores every week with pin triangles and enter the relevent data into a spreadsheet (formerly Microsoft Excel, now Open Office). Most of the simple calculations are done automatically, like the season long numbers, but some things I calculate myself like the nightly percentages.

For my summer league I will begin tracking what lanes I bowl on each week so I can generate averages and percentages by pair as well!

I've only been keeping stats since Feb. Though they are not as detailed, I put my info on 2 programs. 

On bowling night I put it on an app called Best Bowling Free (iPhone) and then I enter it on bowlsk.com
