Yesterday I took my first bowling lesson with Charles Dickey. Carrie said she would pay for a few lessons so I could get better. Now that I have my own equipment it's the perfect time to learn how to use it properly. Charles is a great coach. I spent about an hour with him going over my approach, aiming the ball, using my left hand as a support, and how to hook it. After the lesson, I rolled a 102, 163, and another 102. Not too bad, but best of all, I am becoming a lot more consistent.
