I think that the scoring for ages 14 to 17 in the youth has been extremely good since I was a junior back in 1998. The only difference is now you have all kinds of media to let you know.
I also believe that the equipment of today has allowed more people to bowl better due to the "area of mistakes" you can get away with. The average league shot is designed to get bowling into bowling and enjoy the game. just this friday a 170 average bowler shot his first 300 and it was an amazing moment for that person. its an amazing moment for anyone. the only differenc in todays game is that the average bowlers chance of doing that has increased incredibly due to the advancements of the bowling ball
I don't believe its made bowling any easier because when you bowl some of these tournaments that put out an actual shot that demands accuracy and focus a lot of people still struggle. you also get more entries due to a false level that some people think they have.
in the end while league scoring has skyrocketed in the present day of bowling, once you put bowlers on a oil pattern that demands perfection, the true talent always rises to the top.
If bowling had only 11 frames I would be awesome!
