Linda Archer knows firsthand the value of a bowling coach. The WIBC league member from Tulsa,Oklahoma, decided
to take bowling lessons from USA Bowling coach Christina Marie Morrow after She started bowling 18 months ago.
The Coaching sessions have already paid off for Archer, literally. Archer rolled a division 4 all events score of 1370 at the WIBC Championship Tournament at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nevada, with a whopping 254 Pins over her 124 entering average.
Archer’s all event score ranked 59th, and the stellar performance earned her a prize check of $164.58. She credited Morrow for giving her the confidence to enter the WIBC Tournament. (To learn how to enter the 2004 WIBC Tournament, see page 6)
“She convinced me I needed to go to a tournament” Archer said. I enjoyed it a lot and made a little money.
“She‘s been a great help,” Archer said of Morrow. “She has taught me the four step approach and how to make spares. I can learn the proper techniques instead of getting in the habit of doing everything wrong.”
Archer’s Story is just one example of how a USA certified coach can help members have more fun.
The USA Bowling Coaching program, headquartered in Greendale, Wis. Certifies bowling instructors at various levels to teach youth and adult bowlers how to play the game correctly. It is the only bowling program recognized by the United States Olympic Committee.
