I'm gonna warn you now. The difficulty in this achievement isn't picking up the split, it's getting a split.

This will be the only time when getting a strike is upsetting.

Here's what I did:
-Started a single player bowling game (mini games don't keep split stats, and playing against a comp. takes to long)
-I then stood in the center of the lane and threw the ball AS SOFT AS POSSIBLE

I restarted the match after frame 8 if i didn't have the achievement to save on time.
(held hand at a 45 degree angle to 'pause' game and restarted)

With this method you should get a 4,6,7,10 split rather consistently. With occasional 7,10's.
(according to MathGuy42 if the 1 pin is left it is not considered a split)

However, if the ball is not perfectly centered in the lane you will either get a strike or have a grouping of the 9,10 pins which is just frustrating.

*good luck, this was my last achievement of the game because it was so frustrating.

Edit: After several years of anger and frustration I now have a video to share with you all. I want to thank SaidaiKanpeki for posting it. Its a great example of the slow roll and the split that results from it.
