Hi average for someone without a 300?

I had my highest season ending average this past winter and it got me to thinking, what is the highest average of someone that doesn't have a 300 in their career?

I finished at 216.

Re: Hi average for someone without a 300?

theres a guy in my league who averages 226 with no 300.


says he doesn't want one, when he goes 11 in a row he takes his plastic and throws it out. says hes going to leave it for his last game he ever throws.

Re: Hi average for someone without a 300?

211 last season with no 300

I had the front 11 for the first time ever on the last game of the season this year though.

Re: Hi average for someone without a 300?

I've done 11 in a row quite a few times, my biggest problem is that I usually follow that game with a 160.

Re: Hi average for someone without a 300?

I know a kid who has a 209 average and no 300. He usually gets about 7 or 8 in a row and throws a good ball and ends up with a 6 8 split.

214 high average his year (212 composite for 3 leages) and not even one 11 in a row. 288 high game here. I guess you can't call me a choker because I never even get to 11.

Re: Hi average for someone without a 300?

Kid across town was averaging 236 for the season and had never shot 300/800... That was last year... I believe he finally shot 2 of them this year.

I looked up your averages. You're due. You'll probably be that bowler that has 6 or 7 300 games and 2 or 3 800+ series in one league, seriously.
Seems every year somebody in our Monday night league has that break through year and their confidence goes through the roof..along with their honor scores.

That doesn't sound smart at all... I know he wants to say it like he went out with his highest game ever... but theres waaayyy too many 300's for anyone to really shrug at, if he's averaging 226, he should at least bow out with a high 800.

Lee. Thanks for the vote of confidence. It's been so long that I've basically given up on it. I bowl better knowing that it'll never happen. I used to start a game with the front 3 and start thinking about it. That's no way to have fun. Now I just try to get my match points and win games.

If I do even get the front 11, I'm hitting the bar. I'll down 3 shots (for the 300) and then bowl. Now that's how you have fun!

Re: Hi average for someone without a 300?

Had 9 in a row a few weeks ago in league but besides that never had a 300 in league. I've shot one in practice though,

I average 200-205 in the 2 bowling alleys i bowl at in maryland and in wv i averaged about 190.

Re: Hi average for someone without a 300?

No 300 in your career..not a single high average season.

My high book is/was 217...I have no 300. I did shoot 299 in a sport shot tournament the other day (good shot, tickled the 10)...and do have a sanctioned 11 in a row. I expect to average 220+ this year, but I also hope to get the 300 out of the way as well!

That he's overdue. His average has been consistent for years..just needs that one game or series to start the honor scores flowing.

As far as league.One bowler blew up season before last, had multiple honor scores and his confidence in his game has been high ever since. Another bowler has thrown a nasty ball since I started bowling.. he was overdue to shoot 300s / 800+. He blew up this year and shot multiple honor scores. Both bowlers were 1 and 2 in high averages. Confidence from the honor scores seemed to lead to more honor scores.
