Not so much a drill... more of a mind set. Think smooth, think easy, think swing the ball, not force the ball. You can snap your wrist at the end all you want, but the swing up to the release point should be nice and easy. Gravity. Free, easy swing... then snap it off. Bend your knee, and stay there til the ball is half way down the lane. You will find your roll is better, and hitting your target will be easier and more consistent.

should i just stay lower? it feels in my mind that if i stay lower though the whole thing, that my balance will be a little better, and might keep me from turning.
And im just wondering, how off is my swing to release from being free and easy?

Yeah, you don't want to stand up at the point of release. You want your butt down. and your knee bent, and shoulders up. That's the power position.

It looks to me like you start to torque the ball as it's coming down... about waist high or just below. This is when your shoulder starts to pull through, and your body turns as well. Wait for the ball to get to your ankle... then wrap it.

You might need to slow down until you get the hang of it like I said, then gradually speed back up to normal if you can. Don't get caught up in trying to go fast for the sake of ball speed, this might be why you are twisting because you are trying to catch the ball up to your feet. Slow down and stay lower and see if you aren't in a better position and more consistent. If so I can give you ways to get your ball speed back up besides running to the line.

Agreed, I believe the reason your body twists, your slide foot turns to the right, as well as the rearing up at the line all have to do with your speed. You are too quick to the line right now and it is causing you to pull the ball all the way through the swing. This contorts the body and forces you to bind up in order to create speed.

Try to relax and slow down as CoachJim mentioned in order to get your body into a better position at the line. Once you can stay stable (and down) at release, then you can begin to add speed. Just remember speed is added more in the power step than in the arm so use a strong push into a solid position at the line and your speed will be there, without all the jerky motions.

My advice to you would be to slow down and not try to crank the hell out of the ball. When you try to throw a big powerful hook with tons of revs you lose a lot of your control and ability to hit your spots. I use to throw about 17 -18 mph and averaged around 190. This year I cut it way back to about 14mph and my average is up 17 pins. Give your ball a chance to grabb the lane and let it do the work for you.
