Nice, hope I get the chance to bowl on some different shots like this soon. I am just meeting people in my area at the centers, so house shots for now.

Yeah Kwik, I actually owe it to Jordan this is his league and main practice house. I bowl league in a different one, but with Jordan spending so much time in this one we have formed a good relationship with the management/owners.

When he was trying to convince me to sign up I was telling him I am still a hack on THS so PBA Exp would probably really mess me up. Thats when he said lets lay a shot down and see how you like it.

I belive I ended up shooting 172 but very few strikes most of my scoring was with my plastic on spares and mentally I was pretty tired after just one game. So I signed up lol

I bet when you bowl in that league you will appreciate it when you throw a shot well and strike. I know sometimes I would be missing a board here, two or three the next shot on a ths when I first started getting back into it. I would end up a little frustrated even when I scored well because I knew I wasn't throwing the ball well. Now you will know. Should be lot of fun.

Looks like you are pulling the ball down from the top of the back swing, let the ball swing your arm. If you pause the clip at 13 seconds you will see that because you pulled the ball down from the top your hand has turned to the side and on top of the ball at the release, instead of behind and under the ball.

Let the ball swing at it's own pace and roll the ball forward and keep your fingers through the center of the ball.

Thanks Coach Jim, I actually am planning on getting some good video thursday hopefully as summer is coming along the house seems to be thinning out somewhat.

In this particular video I noticed that as well and my pace seemed more hurried then usual, maybe because the pro was watching me and I let my sub concious take over not sure.

So if it all works out I will be posting both side and rear and asking for some critique. Right now my main issue that I can feel is balance at the line but since I am pulling the shot down I imagine that is driving the lack of balance?

Thanks again.
