In my weekly columns I have been trying to convince bowlers to concentrate on accuracy and certainly practice their spare shooting. Making spares is the most important part of the game that elevates a bowler to the next highest level. Spare shooting practice should include working on throwing a straight ball at all of your single pin spares. That takes the oil conditions out of the equation and further increases your odds of making the spare. Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!
