Hi,smooth stroker please excuse me for using the
wrong name. Yesterday was better for me then last
week when I got lost and shot 432. Monday I did
better because I listen and do. First 191. Then
brain cramp, 137 I moved left when I should have
stayed where I was. center dot 20 target 2nd arrow. 3rd game went back to 20 2nd arrow. Finished game with six beauties for 220. I learned to find the oil then I tried to move away
from it to the left, by that time it already had
moved down. The ball became flat. I seem to be
learning but the price is my average for one game. smile I am looking for better things.
sorry for being long winded. smile good strokers
get some strikes-great strokers get more strikes and spares. see you next time.

Hi dan, question.
I read yesterday on Bowlers Journal .com the hand
position called holding a glass or thumb 9 oclock
fingers 3 oclock. This helps the ball hook but
also go longer on the lane then it breaks. Is this
something that is good or should I stay with the
thumb 10 or 11 oclock and fingers together at
6 oclock. Also there is a grip I have tried with
success. Fingers under the ball and thumb at 1 or
2 oclock with medium high follow through. smile Please advise if these are all ok. bowling joel
Strokers to it better.

Hey Joel!

The more things you are able to the better you will be in the long run. They will make you a more versatile bowler. We must be realistic though. Just because we made a change to our game and it worked once or twice, that doesn't make it the greatest thing in the world. Practice the things you've changed during practice, that is what practice is for. Since we are practicing, score doesn't matter, results of what we change are.

With that said, yes, being able to do the different things that you read in other places is fantastic, but it takes a lot of time and patient effort to perfect them. League night isn't the time to experiment. If you are shooting in the same house all the time, and the shot doesn't change, then you can be reasonably sure that you will start, and target the same place night after night. When you get a different shot put out, or go to a different house, that is where the practicing of the other things come to play.
Keep 'em falling...

Bowlerski, thanks I will keep doing what I have
been doing as the house I bowl in has a good line
for me. Target second arrow,standing on bd 20.
I use medium lift and thumb 2 oclock,fingers close together. When it stops working I will go
to thumb at 11 oclock and fingers spread. Thanks
again and I will be bowling at different house on
sunday and will work to find the shot. On wednsday the shot I described above works ok. that's it for now. bowling joel
strokers do it better. thumbsup
