Hi everybody,

Here is a video of me bowling. I personally feel I have come a pretty long way from where I used to be (I will post links to old videos). Although, I am not where I WANT to be... Where I am today is the result of watching videos of myself and trying to fix what I see on my own. I feel that I have plateaued and would like the help of you all now!

I have recently visited a gold level coach last week and we worked out a ball fit issue which has helped me come out of the ball much cleaner. As of right now he is having me work on my swing plane (it goes to the left a good bit) and my pushaway (wants me to sort of unravel my elbow forward and down rather than push up and out). Regarding my swing plane, he put a video of me beside Kelly Kulick and showed me that it was ok to have and it will be hard to remove fully from my game. But he wants me to make it less drastic I suppose.

As far as my release, he told me that I uncup much too early and if I can hold the cup longer I will have more rpms. But he does not want me to focus on that right now.

But I personally I want to improve my release. In my setup, I put my hand in a strong position and it stays throughout the upswing, but as soon as it begins coming down, I notice (in the videos, I cannot feel it) that my hand is already away from that position. I also notice that at the release point, my wrist is completely broken. I have tried working on keeping my hand behind the ball, and I really feel like I do, but as soon as I watch the video, I am lost!

Average speed is 15.5mph, rev rate I have estimated to be around 230-240~, although I am unsure. I am open to any and all suggestions regarding anything about my game. Please help me! What style of bowler would I be considered as?

Thanks!
