My brother and I practicing Friday.

Notes: I am fighting a sore elbow (injured at work) and a fit issue that I am going to run an experiment on an old ball I trust. Right now I think the span is too short. I bowl on Saturdays in this house and cannot get left of the 8 board, so this is a seriously burnt condition.

I am on the right, the bro' is on the left. Comment if you wish.

The biggest problem I see is that you take 6 steps but push off on the third. You're a step late because of that. First work on timing and then we can find other things in your game to work on. Getting in time should change your game a lot. Other than that work on staying behind the ball and bending your knees at the line.

Your push away is off to the right which causes you to wrap the ball behind your back. Try to keep the ball in line with your head and right foot, The ball should be over your right foot at the end of the push away. You can freeze the frame and see that the entire ball is to the right of your head.

I am not sure what you are driving at here. 4 step approach start with 1st step, 5 step approach start with 2nd step. 6 step approach start with 3rd step. Did I mess up the arithmetic somehow?

It is a constant struggle for me waiting on the ball. My most common error is "going early." The knee bend may be gone for good, but maybe not. Left hip replaced in 2005. To be honest, there is more bend in these frames than I expected to see. I definitely pop up at the end, even when inside I do not feel it. That is how ingrained that bad habit is. Thanks for the response.

That I see, and it is not unintentional, as I am swinging it right a bit. If I keep the drop in line with my right foot how will I be able to clear my (considerable) hip? As you can see, I try to cross over with my steps with the right foot. It doesn't always happen or work as sometimes I find myself right of where I intended to land at the foul line anywhere from 3-7 boards. My line up math allows for 2 boards of drift, but if it is any more than that, I get into trouble. Any suggestions?
I can understand moving my head so it is over the swing slot though. Thanks for bringing that up. I will try to fix it.

Try moving your head into the swing slot and keeping the ball under your head and take another video and we will go on from there.
