    You don't even want to know how bad I shot yesterday. Let just say there were some 4's and leave it at that. Target panic is an ugly thing.:frusty:

    I'm working through it. Don't they say admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery?

    Radar you will be fine. I had never shoot a 300 in league play until Saturday. I have shoot 300's before but never in league. I usually shoot 299 w/ 45 to 53 but never the 300. I always have a gray matter melt down at least once. But Paper has never been my game. You can do it.

    Sometimes we let the numbers get to us, Years ago I worked hard at breaking the 300 barrier I give credit to a few things for accomplishing that feat. My mind tends to work against me, I am a person that can get nerved up pretty easy, some days I can control this better then others. There are days that I try hard to settle down and relax and at times it works great and I am rock solid and there are days that I’m shaking like crazy for a while those days I will take the game out of it in the opening rounds.
    The things that helped me get to and beyond 300
    I worked hard at brainwashing myself (the mental game) daily I would write down on a target that I can and will shoot a 300 round because it’s me and I like it, I would take a target and write this on it in the morning and at night. Your mind remembers things better if wrote down versus telling your self. You can always recite this in your mind during the day to add extra training on the mental game.
    I was able to get a more relaxing target acquisition using a true spot lens back then this also helped my scores.
    Another tip that is overlooked is when practicing shoot beyond your normal rounds until you achieve your 300 score it may take a few extra rounds at first but then your subconscious gets used to the fact that your hitting 300s and soon your doing it in the normal 12 rounds,
    This same practice also works well with working your x counts and in time you will hit 60 Xs or close in the normal game frame also.

    I hope this helps some
    Good luck
