It's a tough habit to break. Most bowlers don't even realize they do it unless they see film. More surprising, most do it really early, usually before the ball gets back more than a foot or two.

Removing unnecessary movement is one of the quickest ways to improve. Anything that interferes with repeatability needs to be discarded.

The worst part, it's impossible to work the inside of the ball, back to front with the thumb at 9. 'Leverage' is the time between when the thumb comes out and when the fingers follow. With the thumb at 9 and the fingers somewhere between 4 and 5, leverage almost disappears.
