A typical league-style, house pattern usually measures anywhere from 38 to 40 feet and is considered easy by PBA Tour standards. PBA events are not conducted using house patterns as they can inflate pro averages from 20 to 50 pins per game. The pattern places almost all of the oil toward the center of the lane which, when combined with a ball that hooks, creates a funnel effect where balls that are sent off their intended line are redirected toward the pocket.
