Bryan O’Keefe, USBC Gold Coach and Director of Coaching at McKendree University, provides a simple at-home solution to diversifying your release. With a dowel, drill and a 6-pound plastic ball, you can practice hand positions that create different rotations for any lane condition thrown your way. Just find your PAP (Positive Axis Point), drill a hole, insert the dowel and you’re good to go. This drill isolates the release, saving wear and tear on your body. No longer will you have to concern yourself with the entire approach and finish position, you can now repeat the release and the release only

Nice example of the divide and conquer concept.
Functional prop that is both a visual and physical tool.
I'd seen Richard Shockley use the dowel in ball prop to illustrate hand motion and position.
Richard uses quite a few props in his video set on YouTube.

Bryan's demo gives the bowler another learning tool.

Kudos to USBC for another solid educational video.

Thanks for sharing this.
