coach needed

Post by doogie » April 17th, 2013, 7:08 pm

I am going to be looking at getting some advice on my game, mainly approach and release since in the past few months, with my 52# of weight loss has caused me to be inconsistent with my swing , release, and approach. I had heard Del Ballard is good to work with. He is only about 250 miles from my town. Any comments? I had also talked to a lady that had been to Mark Baker for help. But being in Ca, that's a bit for me to go. Thanks for any advice.

I had a 1 hour session with Mark Baker. I got much more out of his book then I did the session.

Doogie, just for fun, I thought I'd see if the Bowlers Journal top 100 coaches lists were on the web and I found some.

You might consider adding what neck of the woods you were in. :)

Sooooooooo
I thought I'd add these links to Bowlers Journals Top 100 coaches so that you might see if any of these folks are nearby your area. I did note that Del is on the 2012 list.
Not that I know any of the coaches, but you might also try reaching out to some for their recommendations too.

Jim Merrell is there too. Is that 8 in a row Jim?

Doogie, how are you feeling? How is your health? Are you on any special regimens or rehab protocols?

T, I'm curious about your session with Mark.

How long ago was it.
What details do you recall about the session?
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so
