Hi guys. First, I wanna start this topic by saying thanks to many very nice and excellent members of bowlingcommunity, especially Jim Coach, for continously providing support for us, bowling lovers.
Long story short, I started bowling last June and joined a league to be serious about it in September. I average now at 170s. It's now off season so I want to correct my swing and release to get more leverage and revolution. The funny thing is that I did not know I had a swing behind my back sometimes. It's getting very annoying and it (in my opinion) affects my balance at foul line as you can see from the videos I posted here. I am sure ball fit is one of the problems too. A thumbhole a bit large and a span that goes wrong.

Also my driller never bothered to check my PAP which happens to be different for every bowler, right? I asked him and he told me that there's safe zone to drill my ball so I ok'd it. So my questions are:
1, Is my ball driller right about the PAP fact?
2, Is my span too long? (for middle finger, yes i think so, but for ring finger, it's ok?)
3, What can I suggest my ball driller to do to correct it?
4, What can I do to correct my back swing so that it does not go behind my back? It affects my accuracy and balance.
5, I have always blamed the poor ball fit for not getting enough revolution on the ball. But I have noticed in the videos I turned my wrist too early?

The videos are taken on 3 different days. First one being in April. Sorry for bad quality and cosmic bowling. I always forgot to record it until cosmic bowling.

I know this is a long post, but please bare with me so the helpless and frustrated me can get some help. Thank you everyone!!!!!
