  2. My wife got me a few lessons with Bill Spigner for a birthday present a while back (Chicago suburbs). He was great, helped me a lot. I am bringing my kids (Sarah and Nico) up to see you all and the tournament on Saturday the 15th. Looking forward to seeing you.

    1. I am from the Burbs of Chicago as well. I’ve known Bill for years now. I too have had some tune-up lessons. One of the best things to elevate my game. One of my high school bowler’s parents wanted to get him some professional lessons Bill took him in and together we raised his average +20 pins(what a GREAT coach). David, what burb you from? I am in the Oak Park & River Forest area.

    2. @Richard Short Highland Park. They shut down our bowling alley behind Northbrook Court. We’ve been going to Classic Bowl in Morton Grove over the summers when the kids are home from college. Patty Ann (won the 1990 USBC Queens title) was doing lessons there but she recently sold her shop and took her ball and went home.

  3. I have noticed past couple weeks when Brad throws bad shots he is lifting up when he releases the ball. When he throws good shots he stays more down on it. I have the same problem.

  4. Mannnn I could watch James Blomgren and Prather bowl all day. Both super smooth and fundamentally sound.

  5. Kudos to you guys for staying positive despite the outcome of each qualifying round. Brad, your time to win will come, hang in there.

  6. Always tell my son โ€œthe lanes will come to youโ€ but those patterns look absolutely brutalโ€ฆhope tomorrow is better for you Brad!

  7. I’ll be honest, the PBA tour was basically inaccessible to me as a very casual fan of bowling. This channel has let me see behind the scenes, get to know the players and made bowling a million times more interesting for me.

  8. Hello,

    I grew up near this area. I used to bowl league in that house. Now, that was over 10 years ago. When I bowled there one side was mainly league and tourn. The other side was all open bowling and practice. The two sides were completely different (at least when I bowled there). If I’m remembering correctly the side with open bowling were the low numbers.

    I enjoy your channel and content.

    Non bowling question: have you guys tried Custard or Krinkle yet?
    Good custard is at Culvers or Kopps both have good hamburgers as well. Kopps did when I grew up in the area.


  9. I love seeing Kyle move left, rip it across the gutter, and cover the entire lane like 2 handers. That’s awesome. I’m such a huge fan of the entire “House”.

  10. good show guys. You have shown how hard it s on the PBA tour. You have to have good style/form and get to the line in a repeatable style. Then You have to have the right equipment, which can change from lane to lane. Then you have to read the lanes and figure out where to play. Plus possible loft the ball versus roll early. Us average bowlers who can come in every league and play right up 10 every week, can not relate to the skills you guys possess, and how difficult it is.

  11. Great stuff guys. Lots of bowling this week! Brad- Have you considered playing with a more straight up style and staying as right as possible on any given condition. I remember when you were banging the pins you seemed to be playing a bit more straight down the line form and not trying to swing it like crazy. That may also let you get out of the funk of trying to hit the same exact spot each shot. If all else fails, give it a try. Keep your speed up and give yourself a little break from trying to hit it so hard, hook the lane, and to hit the same exact spot. Of course, that is a strategy that can work on the pattern. Maybe a big change up is exactly what is needed. Best of luck guys!

  12. I feel like brad is lost in the sauce with all the hand adjustments he has made this year. Get to those roots and roll that rock Brad! You can do it!

  13. Definitely throwing a like and comment on this one. The struggle bus is real and you straight up driving it. Keep up the spirits and hopefully a bit of luck tomorrow. I thought it was kind of neat that as he was showing Kyle wrapping up at least twice you saw Brad’s name scroll by on the monitor. Peace

  14. Brad, you always comment about keeping that trail leg down and you’ve been raising it up a lot lately.

  15. Hate to say it but I’m going to. Watching Brad, I can see just about every time he rears up on his release it’s going left, when he stays low it’s an easy follow thru and gets down the lane much easier. Coming from old school but it still works. Love keeping up with you guys, good luck.
