Yeah that's cool. I bend mine a little before I start and then I go from 6ft to about 4ftish and stay there. It feels a little weird at first but it helps with getting low, getting the ball into the lane and accuracy.

I wish I was this good at his age.

1) In his setup move the ball left so the ball is inline with his head and his right foot. Ideally you don't want to see any of the ball from behind during the setup and pushaway.

2)You are leaning forward too early. Wait till the ball is past your right leg ( finish your 2nd step completely ) before you lean forward. Your body angle should be the same here as in your setup.

3)If you fix your balance foot during the release this will help you with your follow through. Your not suppose to lead with your heel during the release you lead with your toes. The yellow line is Jordan's arm.The red line is where you want your arm following thought.

Yeah Lol you could probably spend all day on things I do wrong, my scores and average have improved quite a bit but I describe myself as an accurate hack.

But I am still trying and have fun doing it. I will work on that as I am back to working on balance and posting on the line as we speak I will probably spend all summer just on that.

Not necessarily a bad thing. WRW Jr. could be considered the same thing and he near has as many pro tour titles and majors as years he's lived. So once again, may not be a bad thing Rocket. LOL nut

Demo,I would settle for giving Jordan a run for his money more often! Of course his biggest attribute is spare shooting I swear he could bowl blindfolded and pick up spares if someone told him which pin it was.

Humm, maybe a good practice idea! lol
