they might be trusting to hit target more if they're thrusting it towards the target, instead of just dropping it at the line.
This is what I am talking about, he doesn't trust the ball to go straight so he is over throwing the ball at his spares. This causes all of the problems mentioned by Sk8 earlier about tightening up the grip and rearing up at the line and pulling the ball through.
There is a difference between throwing the ball with
confidence and the result is a 31 mph shot at a spare because that is just how fast it goes, and a forced shot at 31mph.
Confidence is the key, knowing where the ball is going before you throw it, because you practiced it to the point where it doesn't have a chance to miss, instead of winging the ball down the lane out of frustration, or fear of missing.
I'm not saying that if you practice to the point where you have this confidence that you will never miss, everyone makes bad shots and misses spares, all of the bowlers mentioned in this thread have missed spares on TV
before, it is just part of the game.
