Appreciate that 6-ball. Finished up on Thursday went 217, 178, and 204 for 599 in doubles and 202, 175, 174 for 551 in singles. Threw my Radical Cash drilled double thumb with 500 surface and it worked well. Almost had a six-pack in game 1 with a sto

This week we changed to Slowinski's "I Want My Momma" pattern and numbers were up throughout the league, but I was the 2nd best out of 30 with 204-176-181=561. Not a whole barrel full of strikes, but I was MUCH better on spares...even picke

About 18 months ago I began working on ways to increase my speed. I also discontinued pushing the ball away. I did miss starting the ball toward my target, but I began doing something else much better. I started pointing at my target with my 'le

Tuesday scores: 232, 218, 252 This real easy shot is good for practice. Wouldn't like it for competitive league. My practice to get the ball out and into a roll is doing better. Getting much better carry and hitting the pocket with regularity.

Unfortunately I end up deleting them after I've watched them, so I don't have any saved. I'm thinking the next time I'll bowl is Sunday morning, I'll see what I can do then about getting a video. I intend on working on hinging instead of pushing aw

Without holding a ball itself at the moment, I can't really describe right now. I do know that I would have my wrist straight with my left hand under my right hand for support. I would imagine that having my elbow bent at almost 90 degrees before I

I pushed-away for over 50 years :-) Now I un-hinge. It allows me to hold the ball at any height to control speed, but to get it 'started' quickly. No delays un-hinging. During my pre-shot, I intentionally break my wrist slightly and flex it back

I know I'm delayed really badly in starting the ball and every time I try to fix it, I think I'm not delayed but I still am. My ball is not dropping until the beginning of my third step with my right foot even when I'm trying not to do that or think

Are you aware of any delay in starting your ball? I use a 5 step approach and use my second step as the key to my timing. At the very moment my right leg goes in front of my left, I want my ball dropping back into the empty space created. The al

Push-away as of right now, I want to adjust to a hinge and I think that changing my initial starting point of my arm should help me accomplish that. Backswing height is high, a bit above my head (I know it's a bit on the high side). Another piece o

Do you push-away or un-hinge? How high does your backswing go?

I am pretty close to having my ball at waist height when my slide foot is just about stopped, if the end of the slide is what you mean by the end of the foot work. My problems are all before that point, when my 4th step hits flat on the approach, my

Years ago, The footwork that promoted timing was smooth with each step a little longer than the last with a long smooth slide at the end. An old video of Marshal Holman will show you what it looked like. Today, your footwork needs to have a 'gath

I'll keep this thread going too. My attempt to fix my timing on Sunday was not really successful. I bowled well and much straighter with resin along with a mild 1-1.5 mph bump in ball speed. However, my timing wasn't much different and I still fig

The long/flat Slowinski pattern ate me up for 3 sessions, so this is a recounting of the last 60 and over tournament for this season. It was in my home house, but that didn't give me any advantage. I did have 16 strikes but the 10 nine counts hurt. A

We are (thankfully) of the 45' flat. It completely ate me up. UNfortunately, the next pattern looks crazier...the Slowinski "I Want My Momma" pattern, which has about the same volume as the 45' pattern but is 41'. There is a trough across t
