No offense to anyone. But there is an obvious advantage between the left and the right side. I'm not saying that lefties are worse....i know a few good lefties and I think they are really good but I also know a few lefties that get lucky and I would say are bad. Sorry guys. But the ones I think are bad still bowl decent in league and other tournaments. I don't believe that SOME (not all) lefties would even be close to as good as they are on the left side of the lanes if they were right handed. But I could be very wrong.
As for the US Open argument, I would have to disagree on that as well. I believe that the reason for the right dominance would be the fact that there are A LOT more bowlers on the right than on the left. And the US Open being as hard as it is make it equal for everyone. Statistically the righties should win it more just because of numbers.
Take it for what you think it is worth.
I have heard every complaint possible about lefties and righties growing up with a lefty as a father. I can say at times I understand where the lefties come from, however if lefties would truely learn to open themselves up and move right instead of beating themselves up trying to play out at the gutter and complain when they are finished because they bowled bad, blaming it on the shot. I have bowled every stop thus far and i can only remember only seeing no more than a handful of lefties attend the tourneys. Jake washington is the only one who has done anything on a consistent basis simply because he will move off of the 1st arrow. How ignorant can you be to complain about the ball return getting in the way and requesting a shot to make it so you dont have to move towards it, they do make less aggressive balls that roll very well I can suggest a few if you want me to Theo and you can give them to the person who sent you the e-mail. This age old question will never be solved and, this battle will rage on for many many more years.
