Bowling area house rules:
(1).BOWLING SHOES must be worn when bowling.
(2).DO NOT STEP ON THE LANES! THEY ARE OILED! SLIP HAZARD!
(3).PLEASE SHOW LANE COURTESY
(Don't throw a ball at the SAME TIME as a bowler next to you)
(4). DO NOT STAND ON THE APPROACH WHEN ITS NOT YOUR TIME TO BOWL
Here is a good place to start for beginners in order to avoid embarrassment. Nothing looks more foolish than a person walking out on the lane and seeing their legs fly out from under them. Sure it’s funny but it can be dangerous. There is oil on those lanes! So remember to get an employee to go past the foul line if there is a need. Another point of etiquette for beginners...You should use the appropriate lane courtesy. This means having nobody on the approach shooting on either lane to the side of yours before you go. Each bowling league and tournament is different so ask about the lane courtesy before you start.
Learn to Relax
The ability to relax is probably the single most important factor for success in bowling and other sports, and without it you will not acheive your potential. Take this bowling tip to heart, because all the great ones have mastered the ability to relax in the heat of competition. They have a relaxed energetic demeanor. Relaxation increases your level of balance and ability to concentrate, so learn this bowling tip and breathe deep.
Play Your Own Game
We can all learn from each other and everyone is quick to give advice, but hearing dozens of bowling tips from all of your friends can be confusing. Everyone is unique and their bowling style should be unique too. Early timing and late timing, inside out swings and outside in swings, every bowler has to develop in their own way, style is always a matter of comfort. Granted, some styles are more effective than others but understand this bowling tip and you can avoid the imitation trap.
Timing is Everything
Just like the last bowling tip your timing is an individual thing. It is made up of rythum and pace. Rythum meaning how the parts of your game fit together and pace being the over all speed. You may push or drop the ball away on the first or second step or somewhere in between depending on the number of steps you take but it should be exactly the same shot to shot for your rhythm to be consistent. Your pace should also be consistent for the overall delivery, some people have fast feet and some slow, neither is right or wrong if the pace is consistent. Recording a video of yourself is an excellent way to see how your timing affects your shotmaking. Master your timing and you will increase your ability to repeat.
Work every Angle
There are four aspects to any sport. They are the physical, technical, tactical, and mental. This bowling tip encourages you to explore every aspect of your game. The physical in general means increasing strength and balance through exercise and eating right. The technical means practicing and working on basics such as timing. The tactical means exploring the effects of playing different lines on the lane and also learning about technical adjustments such as ball speed change, etc. Lastly and certainly not least in importance tactics means learning about equipment adjustments and their effects, whether it be adding a piece of tape to the thumb of your ball or changing balls all together. Working on the mental side of things is more elusive, but with a good attitude and hard work everything will come together faster and you will gain faith in your abilities and be more confident.
Use Good Equipment
It sounds obvious but we sometimes forget. The best equipment for the job will give the best results. A ball that is drilled for your hand is easier to control than one that doesn’t fit. Shoes that fit comfortably and slide properly will make things easier than shoes everyone has worn. Even pros struggle with this bowling tip and can’t seem to find the right ball for the job at times. They are constantly adjusting their equipment whether it’s the shoes sole to slide properly or simply grabbing a towel to wipe oil off the ball. Follow this bowling tip and you will know why you are only as good as the tools you use.
Don’t Cram for the Exam
Sports are always a test. Whether you are alone, in a league or bowling for big money the game is always the same. Your ability to excel is linked to your memory. You must remember what a good shot feels like to be able to produce it. The more you study the more you learn and remember. A little practice every day or two is more effective than bowling a lot right before an event. Use this bowling tip to put your game on autopilot.
The Swing is the Thing
Nothing differentiates a good bowler from a poor bowler more than the quality of their swing. All of a bowler’s efforts are wasted if their swing is inconsistent or tight. Start the swing as precisely as you can on your intended line and then just let the ball go. The free swing will allow the ball to stay on line so don’t worry about helping or forcing it to your target. This bowling tip takes practice, but when you follow through and let your good timing do it’s job there is no better feeling of effortless power.
The Moment of Truth
Everything in the approach leads to the release. The release needs to be clean and smooth. It should flow easily and feel effortless. No grabbing or squeezing. Beginners often underestimate the effect of a ball that doesn’t fit properly on this crucial moment. Pros will constantly adjust the tape in the thumb hole to get the feel just right. With good timing and a relaxed swing you are on your way to mastering this bowling tip. You will see the fruit of your efforts right at the moment of truth where you’ll know if your shot was good.
Does the weight block inside a bowling ball make any difference in performance? High performance bowling balls usually have two piece construction. The inside core (weight block) in the center of the ball and the surrounding cover-stock..
The center of gravity for bowling purposes is the lowest point on the surface of the ball after coming to rest if you were to float it in water. This is normally where the grip is drilled when not using and extra hole. The center of gravity is not necessarily the same spot as the top of the weight block, because cores are not round and uniform but are either symmetrical or asymmetrical and come in a wide variety of shapes. Each brand of ball has a unique core shape and can be purchased with a choice of pin placement (top of weight block) in relation to CG (center of gravity). The distances typically available range between zero and six inches apart. Manufacturers do this on purpose to allow for a variety of bowling ball drilling patterns each one creating a unique imbalance in the particular ball being drilled. The imbalance created by the drilling pattern effects the shape of the ball path as it rolls down the lane. The experienced bowler can take advantage of this fact by knowing how to match up a drilling pattern, bowling ball, and lane oil pattern. Matching up correctly creates forgiveness in shot making and better pin action.
Bowling balls are normally drilled with the cores placed in positions that are imbalanced with relation to the bowlers positive axis point (the axis point at the initial point of rotation when the bowler releases the ball). The unstableness causes axis migration. Axis migration means that the axis point changes when measured at each rotation as the ball is rolling down the lane. Axis migration causes the ball to roll over different points on the surface of the ball as it is rotating down the lane causing multiple oil rings around the ball rather than one oil ring. The constant fresh surface in contact with the lane grips more than an oily surface and causes the ball to hook more overall. Hook can be a good thing in bowling creating more pin action and higher scores.
Bowling ball cores are constructed with different densities as well. Some are center heavy (low rg) and some cores are made with the weight distributed more towards the cover of the ball (high rg). Low rg balls will spin more easily than the high rg balls. A great analogy I heard is where the ice skater with arms tucked in spins fast (low rg) compared with the same skater with arms outstreched spins slowly (high rg). This information can be used to advantage when selecting a ball for a given drilling pattern and lane condition.
For a consistant bowler that knows a little about bowling ball dynamics these things do matter quite a bit.
