Bowling is my favorite sport... I started regularly bowling four years ago. Since then I have managed to get about a dozen games over 200. My highest score has been 247 What's your highest score? Be honest... If it's 10 points that's ok... my lowest score was 58

2 weeks ago, I hit a 196. That is 4 pins away from a perfect 200 game. I messed up in the tenth frame so I was 4 pins shy of 200. Little by little, I am getting closer to hitting a 200 game. I have an average of 120. This week, I am getting a new ball, so hopefully my game will improve. It will be a dedicated hook ball. Lets hope I can throw a hook with it. I know it will take time to get it working the way I want it. I bowl every week in a bowling league.

That's great. I remember when 196 was my high score, a couple of years ago. Getting your own ball is going to help a lot. It's easier to be consistent if you use the same ball every time. Hooks are fairy easy to do. It's like throwing a football, underhand. I used to go bowling every week but now its less often due to the cost

No, I already have my own ball. Its time to get a new one for me. Its a ten year old ball, but does its job. Its not dedicated to bowling a hook with though. Its a great spare ball for picking up spares. I didn't throw hooks when I bought it in high school. The new ball is going to be an ebonite brand ball. I am going a bit higher in weight, but it should not be to bad. Right now, my ball I have angled at 11 O'clock and twist the ball a bit before throwing it. Its hard to explain but it helps for throwing, but most of the time I can bowl good.

I started bowling when I was 11 bc my dad put my sisters and I in a bowling league. Fortunately, we actually enjoyed it! It also took me about 4 years to break the 200 mark. My highest score I've ever gotten is 211, but that was like 8 years ago! I need to get back on those lanes! I don't want to know how bad I've probably gotten, hahaha.

211 is a good score, it took me a few years to make it to the 200 mark myself. Yes you should return to the lanes, bowling is so fun

My dad signed up my sisters and I in a bowling league when we were kids. Fortunately, we enjoyed it! It also took me about 4 years to hit the 200 mark. The highest score I've gotten is 211, but that was 8 years ago! I need to hit the lanes again. Who know how bad I've probably gotten! :b
