Pro Approach Larry Matthews

Post by thor849 » October 6th, 2021, 1:05 pm

Probably a long shot here, but does anyone here know where I could pick up a copy of The Pro Approach by Larry Matthews? I loaned out my copy and never got it back. Any help would be appreciated.

;) When Dean is not coaching, he doubles as a detective.
Nice find Dean !
May all beings everywhere be happy and free,
and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life
contribute in some way to that happiness
and to that freedom for all.

Yes, that is a great find!

I met and talked with Mathews, interesting conversation. His thought process toward bowling was intriguing.

He gave me a copy of his publication, looked everywhere for it, no luck finding it.

Ironically, Larry's publication was circulating about the same time proprietors (and bowlers) were in a frenzy about slow bowling. While Larry had some good points, even Einstein would have needed an extra 20 seconds on the approach to calculate his next shot.

Thor849, did you ever get a copy of Larry's book?
