Your elbow is away from your body on the down swing. This is being caused by your right shoulder lifting up and through the release this is pulling your arm away from your body in the down swing. Stop trying to control the life out of the ball, you can't force the ball to do what you want, you have to be patient and just let it happen. The phrase "Trust is a must or your game is a bust" is referring to this very thing. What causes a lack of trust is bowling with your eyes, seeing the target line and what you are wanting the ball to do and not having the confidence in it to allow it to do it, so you force it to do what you want and thus kill any chance of it happening for you.

What is the answer? Close your eyes when the ball gets to the top of the back swing and don't open them until the ball is off your hand. This will shut off the inner control freak and allow you to just let it happen. Just realize that once you put the ball in motion, your part in it's travel down the lane is over.
