Some thoughts. If you know you have executed a good delivery, trust what you see. Check what other bowlers are using on your pair and the pair you will be on next week. Keep a book on the lanes. I've read where Mark Roth kept notes on every lane he ever bowled in. Old bowler's term "Go to schoo...

It directly addresses some of the issues you observed. There's a chance some of this will help you. Norm's pointers are not age specific. If interested,...

Re: Fundamentals are the Key

It would be highly unusual for your body not to have changed. You and I are only a few years apart in age. If you cannot get local instruction, consider submitting a video set using the following instructions. Nothing compares well with in person one on one instruction. Here is a fundamental veto co...

Re: Lip Stand on Lane 27

My first concern is why did your leg just give out? That should not happen. You should consider having it checked out. I'm reminded of non contact injuries in sports. While playing for Alabama, Joe Namath's knee gave out as he rolled out to throw a pass, and he fell to the ground.Straw that broke th...

Re: Bowling at the White House

Quite a rare duty.

There are several YouTube's featuring Truman lanes at the Whitehouse.
Nixon was reported to be an avid bowler, there is some footage of him, some other presidents, A PBA visit and others.
