just wondering about others take on this and if it is ( legal ) to do...I can bowl right and left handed, right being the normal. for those 10 pins are hard to get ( i bowl with a hook own one ball and dont have the so-called extra straight ball) is it ok to try and get the 10 pin left handed,, i pick it up 90% of the time lefty and about 40% righty .. go figure.... thanks

Go to your local bowling center and throw several games JUST aiming at the 10 pin, even on the full racks. Just keep practicing and you'll eventually get used to doing it properly. smile

If you're not sure how to go after it ask the Pro Shop operator, a certified coach, or an experienced bowler to show you.

As a relatively accomplished righty/lefty, I hope I can sway you with my advice. That being, you should NOT WANT to shoot your spares that way, no matter whether you're recognizing an advantage.

Aside from it usually being against the rules of most of the events you're bowling, it will leave you with holes in your game you should be addressing. Don't look for crutches, look for improvement.

On the other hand, if you're really converting ANY spare 90% of the time you're going 40% with the other way, maybe you should consider switching hands permanently.
