I once strung the first 10 together in a mixed league..every shot nestled right into the 1-2 pocket (I'm a lefty), so I drew an audience at that point. My heart was pounding, didn't put enough lift on the ball to hook it flush into the pocket and ended up with an 8 count which I closed out.. closest I've ever come. About 10 yrs ago, I was in a pro am tournament with Pete Weber who hit the nail on the head when he said he golfs for fun because you usually get the score you deserve as compared to bowling where so many variables conspire to work against you... IMO that makes what Lebanski did all the more remarkable.

It is hard to keep emotion in check when aspiring to achieve perfection. I know a guy with cerebral palsy (Ronnie) who bowled two perfect games. It is about the only sport he can play because of his condition but it is funny because he doesn't feel sorry for himself one bit he just lives his life the best way he can and accepts it.

I give him huge props for being a "do-er" and not sitting on his *** collecting support from the government, this is one of my all time favorite Ronnie quotes:

In response to my question at a friends wake as to whether he has been laid recently or not: Ronnie "I just went on a blind date the other night, figured I might get some action. It was horrible not only was she fat and ugly but she didn't even have a job. I said why the hell can't you work, I am ****ing handy-caped and I have a job so get off your lazy ***".

I laughed so efin hard at his statment I nearly spilt out the coke I was drinking at the time.

I don't know. Technically the golf swing is a complex set of variables that every human being that has ever played the game from Pros on down to someone who can't break 100 has had trouble navigating. That includes the variables of weather. Last time I check people don't bowl in outdoor lanes.

Pro bowlers do in fact bowl contending with the equivalent of changing and demanding weather conditions in the modern, frequently unforgiving oil patterns that get laid down on each lane at match's outset, then spread and redistributed with every roll, often requiring decisions involving selecting different reactive, weighted and sometimes finger drilled balls. The oil getting pushed down the lane as the matches progress demands different hook trajectories sometimes coupled with modified speeds. Also you have the distraction of other concurrent matches, adjacent ball return machines and crowd noises. In an elimination tournament, the pro bowler sometimes has to change lanes on subsequent match ups and try to make adjustments beyond the several practice balls allowed between games.

Given all of that, despite the precise mechanics of the golf swing, if you execute it perfectly, taking into consideration what you need to, you'll more often be successful than throwing a perfect strike ball due to the kinetic chain reactions of the 10 pins. When one of the all time best bowlers who's also a golfer declares it to be so, I wouldn't necessarily dismiss the possibility out of hand . :idk:

Some time ago I bowled in a league with this guy who averaged about 226... threw a high rev 15 -17 board explosive hook and was fun to watch with plenty of 300 games. He got some backers, went pro but ended up averaging in the 190s on pro lane oil patterns and didn't last too long. Not as easy as it looks

Thanks for enlightening me with the variables in bowling, but sorry, I'm still taking golf. Read John Feinstein's book A Good Walk Spoiled and you'll see. To golf at the highest level equivalent to where Lubanski bowls takes talent but also hours upon hours of practice. Do bowlers practice immediately AFTER one of days in the PBA event? Professional golfers go out to the driving range after every round (with the exception of Sunday's round, usually) and hit more balls before they head back to their hotel room to get up the next morning to do it all over again. Even then that doesn't help you with handling the pressure that goes with standing over that putt that decides if you win $1.08 million or $528,000 which was the difference between 1st and 2nd place at the Travelers this past weekend. And that's just a regular tour stop, the difference between 1st and 2nd at the US Open was $1.44 million and $865,000. At The Master's the difference was $1.44 mil and $704,000.

In a PBA event you just have to beat the few guys you face in your match, tourney format. The entire PBA even only has 72 people in it. In a PGA event, you have to beat the ENTIRE field of the event, usually well over 100. You have to be able to beat half of the field to make the weekend cut to even make a pay check.

I see via Wikipedia that the PBA uses 5 different oil patterns. If they were so lucky on the PGA. Every day of a PGA event has the golf holes cut in a different part of the greens, usually in increasing difficulty, so we'll call that a push with the oil patterns. But each tour event is on a different GOLF COURSE all together every week. Each course is constructed with different grasses (bluegrass, bermuda, rye, bentgrass) and each of those grasses putt differently. I guess this is where I'll mention the weather again, or the differing hole layouts on each golf course. I could also mention the 10's of thousands of spectators staring at you on every shot (also the millions watching at home). I could mention the water hazards (different types that have different rules) or the sand traps, or out of bounds. I could mention the early morning start times.

I get it. Bowling is difficult. Difficult like any game/sport is at the professional level. But I'll still take golf at the professional level over bowling at the professional level. And with all due respect to Mr. Lubanski, it isn't even close. Unless he's contented in a PGA tour event as well, then I can't really take his comparison seriously.

And with all due respect to Mr. Lubanski, it isn't even close. Unless he's contented in a PGA tour event as well, then I can't really take his comparison seriously.

You might be surprised to know that Pro bowlers probably practice as much if not more than their golfing counterparts in offtime.. for many it's a 6 day commitment. And while the purses have grown over the years, the best bowlers don't earn anywhere as much as the middle of the pack golfers so when it's the 10th frame and money's on the line in a close match, if you don't believe it's as nerve-wracking and mind-boggling as standing over a short putt then you're mistaken.

But be all that as it may, I never contended that throwing the perfect bowling ball consistently was as difficult as executing the perfect golf swing. It isn't. However, while you're entitled to your opinion, I still do assert that the one who executes the perfect golf swing will optimize his (low) score more often than the one who rolls the perfect ball his (high) score due to variables involved and kinetic action of 10 pins. When a golfer makes a great swing or putt, he generally knows it as soon as it's complete - there are very few surprises. If a bowler actually burrows a high revolution hooking ball at the right speed and 45 degree angle flush into the 1-3 pocket (for righties) there's still more of a chance he'll leave a single back end pin (10pin) tap or even end up with a split than the golfer will a shot that doesn't go where intended. The proof in the pudding is the dominance of Tiger Woods until recently - he just did things better than all his peers and during that period won consistently. There are pro bowlers with close to the equivalent of Tiger's skillset (Walter Ray Williams and his perfected horse shoe pitching motion for one) but despite that, while someoine like Walter Ray can dominate the sport for a year's worth of tournaments, a) it doesn't happen that often and b) no hot bowler has been able to dominate the sport over a period of time like Woods has... or even end up in the top 5 as often. It's just the way it is. :idk:

Now I've golfed weekly, taken lessons from a pro, set up a driving net in the backyard and all that stuff, as well as bowled ...and gave up golf as being too frustrating when at a time in my life, I didn't need more frustration. So I understand how difficult the game is. I'm not arguing that with you but merely maintaining that someone who plays the game at a top level will more likely end up with what he deserves than his counterpart in bowling. And I do stand by that.
