Hello guys

I've been bowling for one month now, and I've been improving on a steady basis. Still I'm far away from having a proper technique, and my game is still at a very early stage, so please keep that in mind.

I do have a coach, but maybe you guys could give me a few hints as well. Can’t really wrap up 50 bucks each week for a decent coach, but I’ll try to take lessons at least twice a month from now on.
I've uploaded a few videos of myself, maybe you guys could give me some critique.

I won’t just post my strikes, since most of them weren’t good shots anyways and noone cares about some lucky strikes. I’d rather post my disastrous shots, so I can get some real critique.

a few of my “better” shots (far from good, and I still suffer from the same problems mentioned above, but those were a few shots that didn’t feel totally wrong)


a few HORRIBLE shots:


a few shots from the side (bad cameraman):


Things I've been noticing about myself:


1) My left foot isn't pointing towards my target, it's pointing to the right.
That leads to me playing out near the gutter, instead of playing straight over the 2nd arrow and I don’t have the revs to get the ball back to the pocket with the line I’m playing (yet)
When I manage to keep my foot straight, I almost always miss my target, and the ball goes way to the left.

2) I really try to keep my upper body straight, still I feel like I'm almost crouching throughout the approach.
When I try to keep my upper body straight, and bend my knees during the slide/release I almost always screw up the release


3) My wrist is pretty loose. I have no problems tightening up my wrist, I also get way more revs that way, but when I do so, my armswing isn’t free anymore. When I tighten up my wrist, I can feel that I’m guiding the ball through the swing, rather than letting gravity do it’s work.

4) I have huge balance issues

As you can see in the “horrible shots” section, I have problems keeping my balance after the release.Why is that? Is that a timing issue, or is my stance after the release incorrect?


I’d really appreciate a few pointers from you guys, and don’t be shy with critique, I can take it.
