Tips for a New Year for advanced bowlers

By Bryan O'Keefe

While you feel you have developed into a solid player, are you challenging yourself in the sport?

If you are consistently scoring well in your competitive league, don't be content to stay at that level. In the New Year you should look to test yourself in a PBA Experience league. Tougher lane conditions only will help you learn when to make equipment changes and how to make adjustments in your game during the course of a series.

You also can test yourself in tournament play, especially the local and state tournaments run by your local association. And, if you have never bowled in the USBC Open Championships, there is still time to register for this year's event.
