I bowled lefty for 27 years, until a lack of cartilage made bowling even with a knee brace no longer possible. I am fairly ambidextrous and actually started as a right handed bowler before switching mid-season my first year. Summer league starts next week. I have bowled 9 games right handed and what is immediately apparent is my hook is only a few inches right handed where lefty with the same ball was 2+feet. After practice today, I find myself questioning using 2nd arrow to throw down because if I throw right of target, I'm knocking down 3-5 pins only and same when I throw left of target. I'm thinking moving to 1st arrow will allow much higher counts on bad shots. Thoughts? I'm 46 and making the conversion from lefty to righty, knee pain gone using opposite leg as plant leg. Spares will take longer to figure out because I'm going to have to relearn angles for spare pickups....
