Agree 100% with Dennis, CoachJim, and cgeorg...your candlepin experience is going to make it a bit tougher, but you need to slow down, and you need to have your shoulders up. I'm assuming that you want the ball to curve at some point... it's next to impossible to get anything on the ball when your shoulders are that far forward. Try this... stand up straight on the approach, and go through your delivery without bending at the waist... at all. When you get to the slide step, just bend your knee to get down a little. I guarantee you will feel like Frankenstein's monster doing this... but you need to do something out of your muscle memory zone, and to get out of the shoulders-down habit. There is no lob line in tenpin bowling, so don't worry about lofting the ball. And make sure that your approach is at your normal walking pace, and that you are letting the ball swing from your arm like a pendulum... tenpin balls are 15lbs, not 2 1/2, they generate plenty of their own momentum. Don't worry about the pins, or what the ball does on the lane... just the approach. Remember that this approach will not be the end result, this is just a way to work back to a happy medium. Would be helpful to see a video of this drill.
