My second question is if I were to bowl for an extended amount of time (like a tournament or something) on this condition, how the heck would I adjust from that spot with the weird check point just to the left? Just hope to be able to downshell? Thanks for all you do, Michael A — Interesting challenge.

These patterns require very accurate shot making. Usually you want to know where the oil is, and it sounds like you knew it to be right of board 10. Now you want to make your delivery straight up boards 9 or 10 taking advantage of <b>…</b>
