Tournaments and Urethane

Post by JoeVette »

Hello,

I am considering bowling my 1st tournament in my adult life.
Quick background, I am a 41 yr old, newly improved 170+ average from 140 average bowler. I throw around 14mph and have a low rev more of a stroker style. I have a 14 lb Storm Absolute, Hammer Hazmat, and Venom Shock, as well as a spare ball.
All 3 are pin up and drilled for average flare.
Although I've recently improved my avg to where I'm now consistently averaging 180+ per game, I've never thrown Urethane. Although my bowling style is nothing like E.J. Tackett, I have seen him throw a Venom Shock on tour.

The tournament I'm considering entering is a 4 game Low Drop(?)9 pin No Tap, that will be using a PBA Tour oil pattern. The pattern wasnt specified and also not sure what low drop means but I do know what no tap is. I'm wondering if I can still be successful without a Urethane option.
