I was giving a lesson today when the youth bowler (2 handed) went to shot for a spare shot (3-6), and this is how he rolled the ball. Later in the lesson he pickup a 10 pin,9 pin using the same style.

Interesting. I can one up him in strangeness on that one though. The 3-6 is my worst spare. I always find a way to chop. Last Tuesday in league, I chopped the 3, sent it straight back, where it bounced out, back onto the pin deck, and slowly rolled the 6.

Is it bad that I cannot figure out which hand he has in the ball in that shot? It almost seems his left hand imparts more rotation on the ball than the right did.

I've seen several 2-handed bowlers and two huge crankers throw backup balls to pick up stuff on the "wrong" side of the lane. With various degrees of skill and success, lol.

His, though, was almost a full backward roll. . . LOL

Since he has a glove on his right hand, I would guess that his right hand is normally his dominant hand. If that is the case, then his is definitely an illegal throw. The fingers on his left hand are in the ball. That is why it has the motion that it does. If you are coaching him, I would talk to him and ask him about it. If he is at a tournament and they see him do that, someone may call him on it.

His right hand fingers are in the ball.

yep - I can confirm he had his right fingers IN the ball. If you look closely his left fingers show up as "splayed" all the way out. . .

I have a big problem with his non-bowling hand being on the ball and imparting rotation after his fingers from his bowling hand have left the ball. To me, that ball was delivered with his left hand regardless of what hand was in the finger holes. I'd be real curious to know what the USBC would say about this, the rule only refers to the hand in which the ball rests. Would they consider that the ball is resting in his left hand after the right hand has left the ball?
