        3 PT Targeting

        Excellent tip. Used it last night during postion round. We were tied for first, now were up by 4. Average is 202 Shot 268,196,234, 698. I tend to short stoke the ball. Seemed to really help on follow through and reaching my hand to the exit point. Was in the pocket 32 out of 35 frames with five ringing ten pins. Thanks alot . Shirtz

            Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I am just recently looking into the mechanics behind my swing and release to try to improve. Up til now I just got up and bowled, tried to hit my mark and keep a consistant realease. Granted I am only a 193 average, probably no where near most of you. My question is though in the formula to figure out your exit point (PL-35+4), How do you know the Pattern Length? I dont bowl in any PBA tournaments where I could go look up the pattern length, for example the Viper pattern or whatever the tournament is using, all the PBA patterns are well documented online. I just bowl local leagues using the House pattern, are the people working the desk going to give that information to me so I know pattern length?

              At a good knowledgeable house they should be happy to tell you the info.
              Your best bet would be asking the Head laneman/mechanic whose doing the oiling he would know.

                You can find several house patterns here. which would give you a general idea.

                  this is an excellent article. i'll definitely make sure i pay close attention to these three points during practice this weekend, and hope to incorporate them into my PBAX league on Monday nights.
