The Kegel Boardwalk is one of the shortest Kegel bowling patterns at 35' in length. During our second week on this shot, things were a bit more predictable, due to previous experience. But don't let that fool you! The shot is still not easy, as there is a ton of space between the pattern ending and the breakpoint. Control is roughly key here as anything without it becomes quite unpredictable. Spare shooting can generally save you about twenty to thirty pins a game, depending on your first shot consistency. As the shot breaks down, the higher rev players will have more room to bounce, while lower rev players will have some space. Depending on break down you may need to move way in to find some holding room.
The next few weeks are going to be interesting, as I am reworking my form. Rich at Player's Corner has been providing some guidance in order assist with improving my game. Without further ado, let's take this game by game.
Started off with the Flash Point playing roughly center to 10. This held fairly well provided two things, 1: I didn't overpower the shot and 2: I didn't miss target outside. Either of these prevented the ball from turning the corner to the pocket.
Game two played much like game 1, except I was late migrating with the transition. Opens became slightly killer, ruining a higher game. By the end of game two, I was standing at the third dot going to about 12.
After a little bit of deliberation, I shifted to the Phaze II in order to open the shot up and have a more balanced reaction. The backends were burning and I needed more control. This ended up being a great adjustment, showing in the scores!
