Up Your Average

Instruction to Help Raise Your Scores

The Triax Spare System, Part 1


In February 1999 I first published the main points of my then recently developed Triax Spare System in Bowling This Month magazine. This system became so successful and popular so rapidly, that the e mail requests for more info soon numbered well over a hundred. I realized I would never be able to answer that many readers individually, so this months description should satisfy my newspaper readers, in whatever state they reside. There has been so much interest generated by the success of this spare system with those bowlers who use it, including some professionals, that there is a possibility of a book. When and if the book does appear, many aspects of the subject, which cant be covered in a few pages, will come to light. Systems As to the importance of spare converting, Hall of Fame Coach of the pros John Jowdys occasional articles in issues of most US bowling newspapers, list his all time All Miss team. It points to a number of outstanding PBA strike shooters who had to leave the tour because they couldnt win. Why? Poor spare shooting! As we all know, any system is better than none. But most systems Ive seen are complicated enough to discourage the majority of bowlers. The Triax System is specifically designed to simplify efficient spare converting to the utmost possible degree. Believe it or not, there are 1,023 mathematically possible spare combinations in a rack of ten pins. Probably at least a third of these are so unlikely youll never see them. But that still leaves enough to make a simplified, efficient spare system critical. Triax The first rule of spare shooting is universal, In any spare, the front pin must be hit! Well refer to this as the key pin. This leads us to the first simplification rule of the Triax system. That is, that the bowler is assigned to stand on a specific starting (anchor) board as shown, for each of the six pins in the front V of the pin rack, not including the head pin (see illustrations). In this system the feet may NOT be adjusted to different boards from those assigned! So to convert the 10, 6 or 3 pin right of center, as well as the 7, 4 or 2 pins on the left (the pins inside the triangles), the bowler must stand on the specific anchor board shown in the diagram. This simplifies the system, by reducing the number of foot positions to a bare minimum, while greatly increasing spare conversion potential.

Two rules to be published later, will tell us how to hit the key pin somewhere off center to convert other standing pins, splits, avoid cherry picking, etc. But for now, well stick to the basic system itself. Sowe will think of all spares in which the key pin is right of center (in the right triangle) as right side spares, regardless of where any accompanying pins may be located, and those key pins left of center (in the left triangle) as left side spares. Incidentally, the Triax System is designed so that all right handed bowlers use the left foot for anchor board placement and left handers the right foot! This is to keep from possibly standing against the ball return on corner pin shots. (If anyone insists on using the other foot, OK, as long as you can stay away from that ball return.) Now, by regulation, all lane beds are the same width41 inches, plus or minus inchand all current lane beds are being manufactured with 39 boards. Therefore, since the arrows are always 14 to 15 feet from the foul line, current lanes are virtually standard throughout the US and most of the bowling countries on earth. What this means to spare shooting, is that the assigned starting (anchor) board on each side changes by exactly three boards for each successive pin on that side. Thats nothing new. Its been that way for many years. It works because, according to the math, as long as the same target board is used for shooting at any key pins on that same side, the three board foot move brings a ball which hits the mark to the desired key pin every time. The Target Board (Mark) Now we have arrived at the point where theres only one thing left we dont yet knowwhat will be the mark? That information you must discover for yourself, by trying it with a few experimental shots. This is because the mark can, and often does, vary with the individual bowler. However, whatever board your mark ends up being, it must be at the arrows, or the system wont work! But usually the marks dont change by more than three or four boards from bowler to bowler, so I can provide a reasonably educated guess, as follows: To find your specific mark (right handers), try for the 10 pin first, by standing on the 35 board with your left foot, as shown. Next, throw as straight a ball as possible to approximately the 18 board. If the 18 board shot misses the 10 pin, change your mark a board or two right or left and try again. Keep experimenting with mark changes until you hit that 10 pin. When you do, that becomes your mark for all the pins on that side! Left handers, shoot for the 7 pin by doing the same as above on your sidethe exact mirror reverse of the right handers. Note that in the upper left and right sides of the diagram, the illustration shows a blank space for you to write your target board,

once youve determined what it is. If you make copies of this illustration with those spaces left blank, you can enter your own board numbers and use the copy, without having to mark up this article, which you should keep. Use pencil for that. Remember, while unlikely, it is possible that your target board may change as you adjust your approach over time. Until you memorize the board numbers, you may want to carry a copy of the diagram with you for reference, while bowling. My students are each given pre-cut copies to use during play whenever necessary. The Straight Spare Shot This is critical. Trust me, ball manufacturers wouldnt bother to make spare balls if they werent profitable. Oil conditions change at different points on the lane, so hook shots on off center spares are dangerous. The straight shot is the only sure way to take lane conditions out of the game. Obviously, hook shots are necessary for center spares, where a strike shot (or Brooklyn) is called for. Incidentally, in this Triax system, treat the 8 pin as if it were a 2, and the 9 pin as a 3. A reasonably accurate straight shot will work. It need not be absolutely perfect. You dont have to be deadly accurate in this system (except for splits, of course, which well cover later). Normally, a slight miss will still convert that key pin. Exceptions There are always exceptions, of course. But in this system, only a few: The 3-6-9-10 (right handers). Instead of the 3 pin straight shot the system calls for, stand for a 6 pin shot and hook the ball at your 6 pin mark. Deadly accuracy needed for this shot, but it is the best way, statistically. Left handers, mirror reverse (the 2-4-7-8). Stand for a 4 pin and hook the shot. The 2-8 or 2-4-8. Instead of the usual 2 pin straight shot, throw a Brooklyn strike shot. Left handers do the same for the 3-9 or 3-69. (Note: if the 5 pin stands with the above spares, such as in a bucket, do not use the Brooklyn shot. Instead, use the straight shot at the key pin, which is what the system calls for.) The 4-5-7 split. Stand board left of your normal Brooklyn position and throw a normal Brooklyn shot. Left handers, same for the 5-6-10 split, standing board right of your Brooklyn position and throwing Brooklyn. Having said all this, I will acknowledge that some right handers may want to throw a hook at the 3-9 (lefties at the 2-8) but I discourage that, due to oil variations. Statistics indicate that the straight shot converts more of these than a hook. The Bottom Line The success of Triax is pretty far flung. A former Student, Bill Sutera, won the Arizona State Strike Force Championship with it only a week after having learned it. Lane conditions were difficult for that tournament and nobody was able to strike consistently. Sutera won it by missing only one spare in 12 games (not counting three splits) Another example is a Super School student of mine with an average in the 170s, who won a local tournament the very night he had learned the system, with a 246 average. If I hadnt seen the readouts I wouldnt have believed it. As I said, no system, even as simple and successful as this one, can be completely understood with just three or four pages in a couple of articles. Nothing can beat one on one instruction on the lanes. But if the possibility of a book comes to fruition, Ill be able to not only cover all aspects of the system thoroughly, but also get into subjects such as making spare shooting easier by increasing pin fall with a better strike shot, avoiding splits, and so on. Remember John Jowdys comment, Strike for show and spare for dough! PS Next month there will be room for me to cover rules 2 and 3 of this systemsplit shooting and chop avoidancetwo important parts of successful spare converting.

LAS VEGAS TRAVEL LEAGUE By Alice Meglemre


LAKEWOODEvery year the Vegas Travel League Christmas Party gets bigger and better and this year was no exception. Cal Bowl was the site and Alberta Stoute was in charge of arranging the sumptious food dishes brought by members on the five tables Sal set up on the concourse. Not onlydid Alberta provide the eating tools, she also made her to die for macaroni and cheese. We thank her, and all who brought yummy food. Well Done! A special thanks to Tracy Koolmees who again brought gifts for the entire league. This year she brought calendars and pens. Lots of visitors turned out. Erma Palmer, former member who had to give up bowling; Daisy McReynolds, who started the league this year but has been sidelined again; Enola Gentile, former member who also had to give up bowling but still shows up every week (at age 89) to cheer for her team. Merl Eash, former secretary/treasurer, Martha and Doc Underwood, and of course we had Santa Claus, Charlie Williams (President Bernices spouse) who took care of the league gift exchange. He did as good a job as Herman Murray, who was Santa when La Ruth was in the league. We sure miss her too and wish them both well. Santa reported Ann Fedderly was the last one to get a strike in the third game to claim a gift. Lee Halter dropped by to renew old friendships, but did not find too many of them from her bowling past, away back when? Vi Wilson led the honor roll with 237/589, followed by Cyndie Martin 225/574, Cathy Wyatt 546, Pris Mauricio 201/542, Doris Lewis 534, Cil Moons 530, Alta Duke 205/526, Dutch Sullivan 518, Betty Phillips and Dee Mason 517, Kathy Phylow 516, Brenda Johnson 206/509, Patti Givenchin 505, Terri Hefner 500, Rosa Closs 204 and Corky Luth 201. Westminster #2 tops teams with 34 wins, followed by Cerritos #2, 33; Del Rio #1 and Cal #4 tie at 30, Keystone #2, 29, and Keystone #1, rounds out the top five teams but the rest of the 16-team loop are pretty close and we expect them to improve their positions in 2007. Since the league wont return to bowling until January 8 at Cal Bowl, there wont be Vegas league news until January 12. However, if Carol Mancini has available space in the Bowling News on December 28 amd January 4, we will submit pot pouri columns for those dates under the Traveling Turtle heading. Finally, all of us in the Vegas League extend wishes for a Happy New Year to our sponsors for continued support. to the Bowling News for our league news coverage and to bowlers everywhere!

ARCADIAAMF Bowling Square hosted our Annual Christmas Event. Lots and lots of Gifts, Great Food and more, made the event very remarkable. Also very remarkable, was Gilbert Liu who bowled his best, winning his first ABTA Title in a spectacular performance. He won five straight matches and the title game, finally upsetting top seed Jun Tumacay, to be our latest champion. The Christmas Event saw 268 entrants on a tough, but fair shot produce lower cut scores of +302 (men) and + 3 for our ladies to make it to the semis of 60 Bowlers. Also added were Super Seniors Joe Salas, Javier Avila and Angie Nillo. Leading the Semis was a hot Jun Tumacay +142. He would sit out and bowl for the title. In second was Tri Vo, at +95. He would enter in round two of the single elims (top 16). It took a +35 (men) and +27 (lLadies) 3 guaranteed to make the sweet 16 single elims. The Bowlers took to the lanes. In the first round single elims losing were Roy Castillo, Du Quach, Christopher Lee, David Caballero, Angie Nillo, and Christina Cheung. They got checks of $110 in 10-16th place. In round two being eliminated were Tri Vo, Anthony Nunnery, Bedell Vasquez, and Ronnie Ace Cordero. They got checks of $120 in 6-9th place. Round three had Gilbert Liu down buddy Michael Kong 192132. Calvin Thai got toGibin Kim in a close one 227-221. So Gibin and Michael were 4th and 5th and $140 each with fine bowling. Now Calvin Thai and Gilbert Liu would meet with the winner to advance to bowl for the title. Liu was on his game in a 227204 win. Mr. Thai was third with great bowling, and $225. Gilbert, off to the title game vs. Jun Tumacay. The title game was set, and the horses were paid! Liu returned $58 for everyone who had him in the horse bets. We would now have a new champion. Tumacay decided to have Jun lead off. The match was on as Jun spared and Gilbert spared twice then split. Jun had opens in the 2nd and 5th frames. Gilbert led til he opened in frame 8 but Jun also opened and split in frames 8-9. Gilbert held the lead and iced the win with a big double in the 9-10 frames, then coasted to the finish line in a 172/ 207-150-/178 win and the $1,000 1st place. Great bowling by a fine young man who is an ABTA Supporter and has many friends in the club. Gilbert is one of the good guys, and very deserving to be sure! Great bowling by Jun Tumacay, an ABTA regular, also with many friends in the club. He surely could have won on this night! Great bowling Jun!. The same to Calvin Thai third, Gibin Kim and Michael Kong in 4th and 5th places. Tourney Hi Qualifiers were Vic Arteaga at +143 for the men and Natalie PerenishkoLemons led the ladies at +83. They will get paid entries. Ronnie Cordero, and Tri Vo were unable to eliminate one another in the 3-6-9 roll off. So we will go for $1,500 this week at West Covina . They shared a $50 consolation for beer money:-).

BOWLING NEWS play bowlers on tour, Mika Koivuniemi. Did Duke panic? Did he rush to the paddock for another ball? No way, Jose. Duke did what all great bowlers do. He merely moved inside, changed speeds, hand position, and struck out all the way to win the tournament. This is called adjustment, which is acquired through experience and knowledge. Two weeks later, Duke annexed his 25th PBA title by polishing off four opponents, all whom played an inside line. Norm persevered by sticking with his outside end-over-end shot and took advantage of what the lane gave him This is what sets apart players like Duke, Barnes, Tommy Jones, Walter Ray, and other accomplished PBA members from players who forsake hand and speed positions in favor of sandpaper and a boatload of bowling balls. Personally, Id like to see the PBA ban the practice of sanding bowling balls. Does this seem like a harsh or rigid rule? If so, bowling fans may recall objections to the use of sandpaper by one of the of the most fundamentally sound bowlers in the history of the game, Brian Voss. Long live great Hall of Fame bowling writers like Dick Evans. Long live bowlers who have mastered the art of hand and speed control to place themselves among the immortals of the game.

Page 7

JOWDYS JOURNAL
by John Jowdy In one of his recent articles, Dick Evans took a beating from readers when he expressed his belief that the surface of any ball, IN ANY SPORT, should not be altered under any circumstance, including SANDING. Dick Evans is one of, if not, the most prolific bowling writers in the history of the game. He has garnered more writing awards than anyone ever and continues to cover the sport on a greater scale than any single individual in the game. Unlike many bowling know it alls, Evans goes on to say that his detractors were right when they said he didnt know much about the cover stocks on bowling balls and other criticisms directed his way. However, since Evans and I are the best of friends, I feel compelled to come to his defense in responding to some of his critics. First of all, we must realize that some bowlers, who advocate the use of sandpaper, defend this practice because it affords them an edge or aids them in overcoming slicker lane conditions. Please note that I used the term some bowlers, which references bowlers who lack the talent or capability of making hand/release adjustments to overcome changing lane conditions. While I can not physically demonstrate my point due to an arthritic hand problem, I have acquired the reputation of being successful in coaching pros and amateurs for over 30 years, which includes the art of skillfully changing hand positions and speed to achieve a desired ball reaction. I am well aware of different cover stocks, core configurations, and drilling patterns that are all designed to simplify scoring in the game. This is called progress. Bowlers who apply these methods correctly become successful. However, I totally object to tampering with the surface of ANY ball to increase friction on the lanes. Ive lost tract of the years when the practice of toying with the surface of bowling balls passed ABC regulations. Prior to that time, this was an absolute NO, NO. Also, previously prohibited, was the drilling of an additional hole to balance the outside weight of the ball. Its been too long to recall the exact year or dates that ABC lost control of regulations governing outlandish scores. It has become increasingly apparent that any rules or regulations that were in effect prior to the present assault on scoring records have been abandoned and ignored; including SANDING the surface of a ball. Consequently, Id like to respond to two of the letters sent to Dick Evans, wherein, he is chastised for his lack of knowledge regarding bowling balls. Naturally, both of these gentlemen are serious bowlers; one, a German bowler, the other, an American. Each has a different take on todays game; the German suggesting a defensive measure for match play, the American apparently protecting his turf by displaying greater defense of sanding balls than he is in the preservation of PURITY AND INTEGRITY in the game. First, Id like to address an avid bowler from Germany who wrote, it is illegal to alter the surface of a ball during competition. He further states, but who cares? Just get another ball with another surface! Use an EPX-T1 and change the pattern on the lane in just three shots. I think this possibility makes this game more interesting! The more challenging it is, the more fun. I hope more people apply the knowledge of changing the pattern to stop his rival. If the rival is better than me, he will change his shot too. With all due respect to this gentleman, when did bowling become a defensive game? I was always under the impression that in bowling, just as it is in golf, there is NO defense in bowling; the defense is the lane, not your opponent. Whoever scores the highest is the victor; that is, unless you deliberately attempt to overcome your rival by tampering with the approach or through physical force. The American player is obviously a very good bowler who has competed with some of the best players in the PBA Midwest region. He is very knowledgeable bowler in the intricate phases of the game. However, he chastises Mr. Evans regarding his objections to sanding balls with the following statementYour comparisons to other sports belay your lack of technical expertise in the sport. When was the last time they applied so much oil to a basketball court that it wouldnt bounce? When was the last time they applied so much oil to a golf course that the ball would simply slide on the ground and not roll? This happens at bowling events, as lane conditions change throughout the event. With all due respect to this gentleman, I fail to see his comparison of oil application on bowling lanes to oil on a basketball court. However, the game of golf is a fairer equation. Fairways can be narrowed, with high grass increasing the difficulty of salvaging an errant shot. Trees, sand traps and water can be placed in perilous positions. Cups are set in undulating positions and placed in different areas from day to day in professional events. These obstacles are akin to the various invisible oil patterns in PBA tournaments and present a more appropriate comparison. This gentleman goes on to state, When competing in an event, it is of ultimate importance for a bowler to match up his ball reaction with the lane condition applied by the tournament staff, similar to a golfer changing the angle of a golf club. (9 to 3 iron). This can be accomplished by using a different ball or changing the surface of the bowling ball. Changing the surface of a bowling ball allows for more variety in a bowlers arsenal without spending exorbitant amounts of money on equipment. In the future, I would suggest you research your topics before writing. You have made a declaration of a very technical nature regarding a sport that it is obvious you have limited to no technical knowledge. Excuse me.This is pretty harsh on one of the most venerable and knowledgeable writers in the history of bowling. My answer to this critic/bowler, if you were as proficient as a bowler as Dick Evans is a writer, you would be the leading player on the PBA tour. First of all, you want to equate bowling ball reaction to a golfer changing the angle of a golf club (9 to 3). Golfers are allowed 14 clubs; all designed for various distances and loft. All are legal. BUT, they cannot add extra notches in the club heads nor can golfers use balls with extra dimples that are not sanctioned by the PGA. Now, going back to bowling ball reaction, have you been watching the PBA tour lately? Several weeks ago, Norm Duke, bowling in the title match, suddenly lost his carry playing an outside line for five frames. He fell behind over 30 pins to one of the great match

National Deaf Bowling News


Kietz Helped Secure 1974 P/C Deaf Invitational Classic Held in Downey
by Connie Marchionie DOWNEYRecently a fellow friend and columnist Frank Kietz faxed me the score sheet of his games he bowled at his 90th birthday party held in his honor at Forest Lanes. In his third game he started with 6 strikes in row and finished with a 265 game. WOW! for a 90 years old white haired kid. I wish I would do the same when I get to 90. I recalled back in 1973, I found out that a deaf man who moved to California from New York had a screw machine company in South Gate. The man, Bruce Clary an ardent bowler himself was looking for someone to run a big money tournament for deaf bowlers. We did not know each other. So since Frank Kietz lived in South Gate, worked as sports writer for Huntington Park Signal and was a director for Southeast District B.A. and knew me as an experienced deaf tournament director, I asked him to talk to Clary and recommend me to run it. Kietz succeeded and Clary accepted, then Kietz introduced me to Clary. Clary wished for a $5,000 first place step ladder finals like the PBA used but I explained it would not work unless we charged $100.00 entry fee which the deaf could not afford. It was settled on an $8,000 added with $2,000 1st place, with an affordable $25.00 entry fee, 3 days 1974 Labor-Day weekend tournament. One concern was sandbaggers, so entrants were to get their 4 years averages verified and use the highest one. Then the rest is history, NDBA-P/C Deaf Invitational Classic had the largest entry with 603 and prize money close to $21,000.00 paid to 223 places. The memorable tournament was held at the defunct 60 lanes Wonderbowl Downey. Bowling balls were weighed before bowling. Kietz as Southeast District BA director got a crew to do the weighing. The tournament $2,000 winner was Ralph Osborne, Knoxville, Tenn. who beat the late Clyde Ketchum, Seattle, WA ($1,500). Bruce Clary, himself placed 3rd for $1,250 and Ronald Johnson, Minneapolis, MN 4th $1,000. After the tournament Clarys company treated the bowlers to a banquet and show of magicians at Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles where the champion was presented his trophy, jacket and check. Kietz feted (celebrated) with us as part of this successful tournament. Several months after the tournament Clary closed his company. He had retired and is now living in Las Vegas.

Inland Empire NABI Champion Thomas Licauco


SAN BERNARDINO We want to thank AMF Arrowhead Lanes for hosting last Saturdays Inland Empire NABI tournament. They have a great staff and the best pizza in town. Thomas Licauco was very excited to win his first NABI tournament. He is from the San Fernando Valley area (driving 70 miles to bowl), so this win was especially sweet. Thomas has been a NABI member, starting out in San Diego NABI since 1999. He bowls in a league at Mission Hills Bowl. Besides bowling, he likes to shoot pool, play basketball, and play Texas Holdem. Thomas wants to thank his good friends who cheered him on, Noli Valdeleon, Louie Baello and Donato Quintangon. Besides winning $1,000 with optional upgrade of $400 and $100 extra for wearing a NABI shirt, Thomas will receive a new champion shirt and entry into the Tournament of Champions at the NABI Nationals held at The Orleans in Las Vegas, July 2007.

Tenth Annual Teen Masters Qualifying Starts Rolling January 27


New national finals hits Las Vegas July 29
2007 will be an exciting year for youth bowling, and one of the cant miss events for competitive young players will be the ever-popular Teen Masters. The new Teen Masters will be very special this year. Not only is it the 10th annual TM event produced by Gary Becks Killer B Promotions, but the national finals will be held at the incredible Orleans Bowling Center in Las Vegas, Nevada July 29 - August 3. We love hosting youth events, and the Teen Masters is one of the best, said Mike Monyak, Director of Bowling at the Orleans. We have a lot of local, state, and regional events for kids, and we welcome the opportunity to have this national event. Youth bowlers are our future, and we are very happy to be a part of this tournament. The qualifying rounds for the Teen Masters begin in dozens of bowling centers across the nation January 27 and will conclude with a Last Chance event in Las Vegas just prior to the start of the national finals. Look for a complete list of TM qualifying centers on the official Teen Masters website www.teenmastersbowling.com. The Teen Masters annually crowns the best high school bowlers in America, and it also reaches out to younger youth bowlers through its Classified Division for bowlers averaging 189 or less. Classified division bowlers cannot advance to the national finals, but they will win local scholarship awards, gain valuable tournament competition experience, and get one step closer to becoming the next generation of national finalists. We are very proud that we have been able to bring this great event to youth bowlers for 10 years now, said Beck. We are looking forward to making it even better in the next decade. The Teen Masters is Americas most exciting youth singles event. The 10th Annual Teen Masters is presented by Killer B Promotions, and sponsored by Dexter, Southwest Airlines, Kegel, The Professional Bowlers Association, The United States Bowling Congress, and the Bowling Proprietors Association of America. Qualifying will be held across the nation starting January 27, leading to the TM National Finals in Las Vegas July 29 August 3. It is open to all high school and younger bowlers who are certified USBC members. For complete rules, entry information, and a list of qualifying centers, visit www.killerbpromotions.com or call (434) 823 - BOWL.
