Having had a successful carpel tunnel surgery done to my right hand a few years back has allowed me to comfortably get back into a couple of my most beloved sports; fly-fishing & bowling. Fly-fishing aside, I used to bowl quite a bit back in the 90's, what with 3 leagues a week plus Monte Carlo every Saturday and endless practice. Over time, the pain in my right hand an elbow quashed that and I had to quit. Not long after recovering from the surgery, I joined 2 leagues and rolled all winter. I roll in one league now (Mondays) and like last year, it overlaps with my newly-found sport of golf. Last year I noticed a marked up-tick in my bowling scores, especially if I played a round of golf that same weekend. That trend continued last night as well and there has GOT to be something to it. I was better focused on my marks and consistently hit it all night. Now I'd love to say I had a 900-series, but alas I only came in just above average (182) with a solid 552. But I came away as satisfied as I would on a day of golf with many more solid hits than not. I believe that the focus and attention to detail that the game of golf demands, translates easily (at least for what I'm doing) to bowling, and I bet it also would do it for other sports and activities. Have any of you experienced this "focus transfer" into other things you do? If so, what activities are they and what did you learn?
