it's to get them left - you can only stand so far left before you run into the ball return, so if you walk left then you can get around it.

Sorry team.. not much of a performance on my side last night. I think my head was still on vacation in Aruba. I kept "throwing" the ball and couldn't get what felt like a clean release all night. Not surprisingly carry was TERRIBLE. 226

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet) If it was possible for me to leave more "junk" than I did last week, it happened tonight. The sure thing I've noticed so far is that it isn't an easy house shot out there for me, w

GP, you know I try to run the format that makes the most sense for the number of bowlers, and it happened to be four-man this time around.

I find that by trying to keep my hand tight under the ball at setup created a lot of side rotation. Fixed that setup, then I worked on moving the left arm to the right, which allowed for a freer backswing, opening the shoulders, and allowing me to s

The Defiant was a very good ball, so I wouldn't steer you away from it, but the Hyper Cell Has the same coverstock, and in my opinion, a much better core. I think its one of the best balls out there for heavier volumes.
