COACH B'S ADVISES ON HOW TO IMPROVE SCORE




Q. My average is 188 and I would love to get to 200 next season do you have any ideas as to how I can accomplish this goal?

A. The jump from your average level to a 200 is almost always dependant on improving your spare game. I subscribe to what I call the Ron DeGroat school of practice. Ron is a respected bowling instructor in Las Vegas. His practice method is to roll your first ball shooting at the ten pin on the first ball. Throw your strike ball on the second ball. Then shoot the seven pin for a game and then shoot the first ball. Ron’s theory is you double your practice money by getting all the shots you pay for. He says no one ever won any money throwing strikes in practice. This method does get a little boring at times but you get out of practice what you put into it. If you can discipline yourself to practice this way your improvement will be worth it.
