Being able to really understand the path your ball takes is a great bowling technique to use. It can really help you bowl a consistent ball, and will give you the confidence you need to make those pressure bowling shots. Wouldn’t it be nice to throw a ball, and when it doesn’t strike, you can say, “My ball was a board over at the arrows.” Now you know what you need to adjust. We will give you a great technique to use to do just that.
Have you ever bowled a ball that you thought was going to be a great shot, yet it did not hit the pocket. The ball felt really good when you released it, you hit the mark you were aiming for, your balance was good, and the release was clean. Your natural reaction was probably to blame it on imperfections or dryness in the lane. However, you or the others you were bowling with were not having any lane issues.
So what went wrong? One needs to remember that there are many ways the bowling ball can hit the target. It can hit it straight on, right to left, or left to right. And there are countless differences in the angle the ball can hit as well. Because there are so many different way to hit a target, you need to focus in on multiple points on the lane to get a true idea of the path of your ball. You need at least two points, a starting point and an end point, and picking a third point somewhere in the middle is recommended. Choose points such as the foul line, the arrows, the dots, or the break point to use to help see what the ball is actually doing.
