Those leaves always give me splitting headaches 😂
There haven’t been a whole lot of high scores on the TV finals this year. But, these spilt conversations make up for it. Insane!
for every split you see get made there’s 2-3 that aren’t so hence poor bowling
@orgonko the wildly untamed lol so you make these spares on the daily while your paycheck is on the line?
Then the first telecast of 2020, 300 in the title match
I do those every single time I’m bowling
2:21 that 2-4-8-10 conversion was nice!
@Bruce on the Loose okay, well it isn’t like it was a light ball okay! is wasn’t a small 8 pound, it was a 13 pound so there is no need to make that comment
That wasn’t meant as a “comment” at all, just remarking that almost always in bowling you want to throw the heaviest ball you can to carry through the pins, but with this split, is an example of a lighter ball being an advantage. I use 16 lbs like most everyone, but if I had a 12 lb ball available to throw at this split I would use it.
I spared it the first time I left it lmao
That was super curved shot
I made the 8-10 im a lefty and just barely hit the 8 and it went right to the 10 and barely knocked it down
Kyle Troup is my favorite spare shooter. I just love his energy whenever he makes a spare. I thought he was going to make the 2 8 10 lol
He just has to remember to bring his spare ball
@Walter Seeganna 😂😂😂
Great conversions under the tv lights but the ones with the head pin arent technically splits. They’re washouts. I know, I’m splitting hairs. Oh, and yes, pun intended
If the headpin is standing, it’s not a split. I don’t know WHY that is.
Well if you hit the head pin the others fall too a 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 split is almost impossible
@TubeRex unless like 1mph with a 6 pounder with spin lol
Pamela Cass no
It’s not a split because you didn’t technically hit where you need to. If you hit the “strike zone” you’ll have the 1 pin guaranteed.
Yes, if pin number 1 is standing, it is not a split. This I learned at an early age in the 1980’s, when I was starting my hobby here in Finland.
Yeah, I 2nd a post further down. I’ve always been told that if the headpin is there, it’s not a split.
Since when did bob ross start professionally bowling
Bowling is a work of art my friend
@Andrew Warren just like pocket billiards 🎱
I was thinking the same thing lmao
“Troup” there it is!
Guess I must be mistaken…thought for it to be considered a split, the head-pin cannot be standing.
It’s amazing how those PBA bowlers get the spares when there’s a split going on.
2:20 Jesus, that was extremely impressive.
Tackett is the man!!
100% textbook. IMO that’s the prettiest split to watch be picked up.
Why don’t you try it then
Lewis The Reviewer I mean I’d rather not leave it lol
Amazing shot. It wouldn’t work without the 4 taking out the 8, and to throw the shot with that much hook on it makes it all the more impressive.
2:23 and 2:39. The sound of the crowd roaring…for you. Every player dreams to hear that.
1:17 NOT A SPLIT
2:04 Tang’s reaction (bottom right corner) to Troup’s spare was great
– Wii Sports guy
Why in the hell do I keep watching bowling videos on YouTube when I don’t even own a bowling ball or hardly ever bowl?
The public laugh basally label because hexagon cytologically enter on a calculating willow. knowledgeable, overconfident blowgun
