Re: Seeking Single Ball Solution

Bud regarding covering the 10 pin. I followed Norm Dukes example and rolled a straight ball at it and many spares including the bucket. If you currently spread your index finger, move it next to your middle finger to straighten out the ball. I shared that tip with a teammate who had trouble with his...

Re: keeping notes

while watching the ladies bowling tonight, I noticed one of the ladies was keeping notes after her frame.... what are they keeping track of? Without asking her we would not know. I've been out of the game for a long time. Good question for bowling broadcast teams and for Bowler's via social media. ...

Re: Reinventing my game

Bud, you have the attitude of a winner! I've been out of the game a long time myself. I wish you well. May your fervor for the sport never end. Some points which may have already been covered. As you know, aggressive equipment magnifies a bowlers release. So slower ball speeds mean the ball will pre...

Re: 12-13 lb ball to learn two-handed?

To get the response ball rolling. Have you considered using a house ball to learn? Doing so you would be able to try different weights and observe differences in your mechanics.

Re: Thumbnail splitting

I know you've consulted with a doctor. The doctor probably told you that aging can lead to changes in our finger and toenails. I remember my father having to deal with a thumbnail problem when he was in his early 70's, he was retired, not engaged in physical activities that could stress or injure hi...

Re: Axis Tilt/ Fit Help

If you lengthened the span the ball stays on your hand longer, so the effect should be the opposite, your tilt should go down. Just a guess, I believe you have a lot of force in your downswing. Need to loosen up the swing and relax. This may mean relaxing your fit more over time, since it will be u...

Re: Sticky rubber heals

Good information ! I'd never heard of the slide stone. Several types are available online, e.g. Ama* The thread reminded me of Marshall Holman's trademark long slide. I believe the heal section of his shoes were flat. I've been out of the game so long, the last time I bowled I was using Linds classi...

By the way, timing is best assessed by the side view. Bud, getting the ball into the swing and surrendering control to gravity is not intuitive as are some of the ball to steps synchronization. Don't feel this is age related, it is not. I'm an advocate of using props and practicing away from the lan...
