i will just answer the forum from the topic "RG"........

i agree with DLASTEMPEROR, most OPEN TOURNAMENTS are favored for lefties, when we say OPEN TOURNAMENTS..those are the tourney that are sanctioned by the PBC which are held in different centers...although we really have great lefties like CJ and Joonie pero yung iba.....well be the judge..... i can pinpoint one factor that´s why lefties dominate in tourneys... LANE READER... before a PBC santioned tournament begins, the lanes are read by the lane reader and there´s this tape analyqed by a PC then a lane graph will be posted. There you can see that the lanes are perfect, even for left and right, it looks perfect...... but hey it never happened... first the lane reader machine is like 10 to 15 years old, repaired so many times, not calibrated, in short, its not functioning well.... so for me, PBC have to purchase a new one, anyway it´s not that expensive.....(gising PBC hehe)

and also dlastemperor, in Playdium, i alsways wanted to be fair for lefties righties big hook and small hook bowlers....but not spinners... i see to it that lanes are even kahit na may big betting...i dont want to oil thees for my benefit or someone else...so hope you realized that... its just amazing when your tournament organizer in your league complains everytime when the lanes change a bit...we have to know that everyday is a defferent day, there´s no bowling center that have the same condition everyday and everyhour...daming factor kasi diba...

tama rin si blackcloud, if you think that the lane graph favors the lefties, walk out and join other tournaments just like i did in the last months SM CUP monthly, i had good decision, top 4 are lefties, at least nakatipid ako ng 2k heheehe....

happy bowling guys!!!

Hi coach,

I believe a reason why a certain lane condition would be considered lefty is largely due to the fact na minority ang lefty (me included). So the pattern doesn´t change much for us throughout the tournament, experiencing slower carrydown and breakdown. In effect, we don´t need to adjust as much as the righties.

This seems to be a lefty´s blessing nowadays, but I still remember my early teen years of worn wooden lanes and my old maxim. Those days I envied the righties. When the class O bowlers bored a track on the second arrow, all they needed to do was keep the same line and the ball goes into auto pilot to the pocket. We lefties never had enough numbers to take advantage of a track shot.


Twas better to have bowled and lost than to have never bowled at all...

thank you angelo!!! if you think there is a problem over there. i´ve seen bowlers complain up a storm in the PBA regionals, the high rollers in vegas, the PBA exempt tour itself. it´s pathetic to see a bunch of bowlers find time to use their mouths more than their brain when the shot doesn´t go into their favor and have someone else to blame . the solution? there´s your urethane, plastic or even rubber balls. or you can try throwing left handed.
by the way, why not try organizing a "bowling with the opposite hand tournament"? just for fun. i remember doing that a few years ago. a lot of bowlers got a big kick out of it, and they had a great time.
hey angelo, if you are interested in a lane reader, i might be able to sell you one.

angelo, brunswick sells a computer lane monitor system. has everything you need to read oil volume on the lanes, etc. you might want to ask the distributor there what their price is, if it will end up being more expensive there, i´ll ask the distributor here and see what kind of break i can get to save you some money.

just wondering, why this topic focused on the advantege of lefties or righties? i think each bowler is responsible for himself before entering a tournament...
also, i think bowler nowadays are getting more observant if he have competition for himself before giving his entry fee... but why is it that it is always heard in the end of the competition that a blame are being passed by someone?
(simply confused)

it´s really sad when they have to put the blame on someone else and don´t have the balls, guts whatever to man up to their unsatisfied showing. they knew what they were getting into before they entered. it tells them they need to invest in lessons about adjusting first with angelo before entering another tournament.
