You are better at the line, but you need to keep the swing under your head, you are round housing the ball quite a bit.

I have been watching Xtra Frame all week and Belmonte was always on, and when ever he threw the ball like that it was a bad shot. He did throw several bad shots where his swing/elbow got out to the right at the release though, so it is probably hard to do bowling like that since he is as good as it gets at bowling two handed and he still makes shots like that so have patience.

What I'm saying is, make it the primary focus for your practice sessions to keep your swing under your head and keep your hand through the bottom of the ball and through your target. You don't need to get around on it to make it hook bowling two handed, so stop trying so hard to make the ball hook.

I'm not trying to make it hook. I guess it's just the way I'm used to pulling it back and releasing it. I'll try to keep my swing lower.


P.S. - Osku is better than Belmo smile

Who has more PBA titles?

BTW Scroggins has more titles than either one of them and will be going for his third Major this Sunday at the masters, shows you how much style points matter.

Who is currently rank 1 in Europe? Who destroyed all of his American PBA competitors at the Weber Cub? Who was the first on the PBA to do the Two Handed Style? Osku Palermaa

As for Scroggins, I guess 50 rpm bowlers can win too.

"Scroggins has more titles than either one of them"

Take a look at how old he is and his years on tour compared to them. That's like comparing apples to oranges.

Scroggins also has more titles that Robert Smith if I am not mistaken...

Belmo seems to keep both elbows in during setup and during the swing, Osku keeps his right elbow in, where like in your first throw it appears both elbows are flared like you were squeezing the ball between your hands. I think they keep that right elbow in so that it keeps the ball under their head, where using two hands it's easy to throw the ball away from your body and side arm it so to speak.
