Your falling off your shot, learn to post your shot (two feet on the ground) it will add stability, repeatability, and leverage.

Yeah, your slide foot is not centered under you and your trail leg should stabilize you by being on the floor. Swinging your trail leg like you do, will pull off balance, even more then you are.

Focus on getting your slide centered under you so you can balance on it alone. Then, get your trail leg to the floor. It might help if you square your shoulders to the foul line instead of leaning so much.

1st , Learn to create balance.





2nd, in the pushaway the ball goes over your left foot (not outside of the foot).

Do you have a good pair of bowling shoes?
You may want to start your approach behind the last row of dots. It doesn't look like you have room to create a good slide.Do not take longer steps if you move back.

@spr3wr I own a ok pair of Dexters an more than likely I need to clean my slide shoe. Also could that be the reason that I'm losing hook when I bowl on wood lanes? I believe that I have the falling off my shot issue fixed ill post a couple more videos later on in the week thanks again

dip1080, even if your post doesn't help misterohio it will surly help me. I don't do that fall away every time but I do it often enough. Now I know it's a bad thing and what to do about it. Thanks.

Hey Rat Man,
You're very welcome. I struggled with the same problem for years & years. It wasn't until I decided that I needed help from a real bowling coach. He guided me right to a fix before I even knew it.
Falling off the shot is a key to consistency and it's helped in many ways. For example, my head doesn't bob up and down anymore, I can watch my ball travel all the way down the lane, I can see my target and breakpoint clearly and I can see lane transition.
Thanks for your reply...
