“The more I practice, the luckier I get”
That quote has been attributed to several sports stars, mainly golfers
such as Gary Player, Arnold Palmer and Jerry Berber amongst others,
but at the heart of the matter is that practice, if not making perfect,
will make you a better sportsman and certainly a better bowler
Members are welcome to practice on the green.
