After a few weeks off I bowled in a regional tournament up in Rocky Mt. N.C. I won this tournament the last 2 years. I was expecting decent scores, but unfortunately they weren't from me. I had only one decent game and 3 bad ones. I started playing around the 3rd arrow and tried playing the extreme outside for a few shots in the 2nd and 3rd games. I finally started striking in the 4th game swinging the ball around the 4th arrow. Unfortunately I kept throwing enough bad shots after that to keep me in trouble, especially game 7. I ended up missing the cash cut by over 50 pins which is kind of embarrassing. I chopped a couple of spares, but made several splits and a washout. I needed some of the strikes I threw in the pro-am. I hope that is the last tournament I have like that for long time.
