A fellow bowler told me I am turning the ball early... It is a problem I was somewhat aware of but really noticed it tonite on slick conditions... My ball was really lacking drive tonite more than any night I can remember.. A lot of 2-8 10s, weak 10s, pocket 7-10... I knew something was off because I was hitting my spots at the arrows and breakpoint to no success...

I cant get the feeling back of not turning the ball until it passes my slide foot.. I can feel my hand is on the inside of the ball throughout the backswing but everything falls apart by me turning the ball a good foot or 2 before my slide foot... This early turn is even resulting in a mini chicken wing where I can feel my elbow kick out at release...

This didnt happen the entire night. I would string 4 together with a nice strong reaction and then the next shot my ball will slide past the head or leave a washout..

I was wondering if anyone has any mental thoughts during there swing , or physical drills that could help... I appreciate everyones help..

One quick note.. this problem has been lingering for a while but not to the extreme as it did tonite... Turning early is causing the mini chicken wing, my ball going too long, balance issues, and poor aim...
