2 handed - form critique

Post by Jochemke » October 17th, 2019, 9:13 pm

Hey all,

I have decided to go back to throwing 2 handed.
I have been bowling for 2 years now and a year ago I have experimented with throwing 2 handed for about 2 months. I switched back to 1 handed because my friends said it was better for me but I eventually lost the fun in bowling due to thumb problems.

Now I am determined to develop a solid 2 hander game.

I hope some of you can help me improve my game and tell me what I should work on.

Interesting information:
I had the chance to bowl my first 3 games today using 2 hands since last year. In the beginning I was very careful because I didn't feel comfortable. In the third game I got a bit more confident and my speed went up from 22kmh at release to 26kmh at release. At the pins it was 21kmh measured with Specto.

Video Capture recommendations.
At a minimum, you need both rear and side views

A lot of what you need to fix will be apparent when you view a side video

When reviewing YouTube videos you can playback video at slow speeds, you can pause as needed.

Some reference material.
It helps if you have good role models, here are some.

See the pictures of the boy in the red shirt.

Consider practicing with a light house ball.
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

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em
