Just top the ball like I do, your track will never come close to your thumbhole (kidding, don't do that).

Some bowlers catch the thumbhole on pretty much every "kill" shot (straight for spares), I wouldn't like it on a strike ball as I suspect the ball loses some energy "bouncing" a bit as it tracks over the thumb.

I don't know how to fix it, above my pay grade... sorry frown I don't think layout is a factor for initial ball track so much as the amount of flare.

I received several comments to this video. First starting The ball to far out to the right and the second no knee bend. So in league wednesday I brought the ball a few inches farther in at address and focused on pushing straight out to target and collapsing my knee on the power step. For some reason I had stopped doing this because I have been focusing on so many changes I guess some hadn't been committed to memory. I shot 237 224 251 for 712. Thanks for the comments everyone. Keep the tips coming.
