REASONS FOR INCREASING SCORES IN LATER GAMES




Q. Now I have a question. My average in my first game in leagues is about 170. The next two are in the 190 plus range. I have verified this by my end of season tally sheets and personal observation. I have tried one or two warm up games but to no avail. Any ideas?

A. Sounds like that the lanes are opening up in the last 2 games. I mean the lanes are drying out a bit and you get more hook in the midlane. They also get some oil carry down and this mellows out the shot. You then have more control and higher scores. To combat this use a ball that rolls earlier in the first game, then switch to the ball you have been using for the last 2. If you aren't sure what ball rolls earlier use a dull ball the first game then switch. You might try a new particle ball they also roll earlier. If an overreacting lane the first game is the problem and you score better after some carry down then this will help.
