One more thing about employing a bowling coach to help improve one’s game:
Not everyone needs a coach or even wants one.
Johnnie Englehart, among the super elite of San Fernando Valley bowlers, said recently that he doesn’t use a coach.
“I just talk to the guy in the mirror,” he joked.
Englehart, incidentally, doesn’t appear to need much assistance. He has blasted 52 perfect games and 60 800 series.
The right-handed Englehart averaged a remarkable 255 for 45 games in the 2005 summer “River Maniacs” league at Canoga Park Bowl.
Said Englehart: “I try to keep it simple. There’s not much effort to get the ball down the lane.”
