Shoveling (also called no-thumb or often two-handed) is a bowling technique whereupon the thumb is not inserted into the thumb hole. The technique produces high revolutions for the ball. The ball is often held with both hands or balanced on the forearm while the bowler executes a bent elbow backswing. The arm is never straightened; the ball is essentially pushed down the lane while the bowler rotates his hand and arm around the ball. Due to similar ball roll and revolutions to the cranker style, it is sometimes considered a variation of cranking.

This technique is quite rare among high-level bowlers, but is commonly used to generate revolutions by casual bowlers who do not know how to hook the ball using one of the more conventional techniques.

Traditionally, in two handed bowling, two fingers are inserted and the thumb is left out. The dominant hand is then used to cradle the ball and creates extra spin on the release. Then, the opposite hand is used to guide the ball through the throwing motion. Two handed bowlers are forced to flex forward farther and rotate more than a single handed bowler. These bowlers are placing more torque through the spine in order to increase the ball speed and revolution rate. This form of bowling, if done correctly, increases force, revolutions and pin carry. A two handed bowler's revolution rate can reach up to 600 revolutions per minute, which is up to 17% more rotation than the nearest elite single handed bowler and twice what some top professional bowlers generate.[1]

Notable bowlers with this style include Mike Miller (one-handed), Australian Jason Belmonte; Finn Osku Palermaa; and American pre-teen Chaz Dennis, the youngest person ever to bowl a 300 game. The latter three are two-handed bowlers. The bowling team of Bolivia is also noted for changing their bowlers to using the two-handed style.

Hey KahKiat,

Well done on putting some serious effort into this, I hope fellow 2 handers, and perhaps bowlers who are interested in this style get something out of it.

I'm a 2 hander, loving it, how about yourself mate?

For me, I will train hard to become a power player first. As for other styles, I will just put them at the last. No harm learning & understand all sorts of styles laugh

One thing I dislike about two handed style is, when a person playing two handed style. He will become like a two handed robot (all will be bowling with 2 hands like no different). Meaning that, he will lose is unique one handed style.

Two handed is fun to play & can be used as an emergency in case your thumb is swelling lol!
