Woody Eskildsen earned top honors in league action last week at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes. Woody scattered the sticks like a pro in the Monday night Industrial league, finishing the session with a super scratch 258 game. For the evening’s work, Woody was 138 pins over his average. We’ve been watching Woody’s progress and he’s definitely found some keys to successful bowling. The right hander has a nice smooth approach, finishes on the right side of the lane at the foul line which gives the best strike angle into the pins and rolls a nice hook.
