Ever since my back surgery in '03, coming back into bowling I went to a 4-step approach. I have noticed on my slide step I am ending up about 8-10" short of the foul line on release, sometimes a little more. I don't seem to be taking short steps, and on my slide I never seem to abruptly stop. I just take comfortable steps.

Is it bad form or just plain 'ol bad to be coming up that short? Would my game improve to force myself to make a longer stride to end up a bit closer to the front of the lane?
