Today’s lesson was more of the same from previous lessons, but today, Ray moved the tape on the lane right up to the break point, and something seemed to click, as I threw four or five good shots in a row. When I mentioned last night’s problem with the right side, he told me to line up for the 10 but also aim for the tape, and project to it. After missing a single 10 I had standing, the last balls were with me throwing my 10 first, then my strike ball, with me contacting the 10 every time and the last strike being just about dead perfect. Ray called this a good lesson, and I had to agree with his assessment. My next practices will also have me shooting 10 first, then strike.

I started "The Tenth Board" to chronicle my experiences during the road back to league bowling after my heel fractures in 1999 (it took me 7 years before I started thinking seriously about it). I now use the blog as a combination of a personal bowling journal and a news site mostly about Westgate Lanes (Brockton, MA) and its bowlers. View all posts by Rich
