Finally got two of my short clips uploaded onto youtube.

Me:
21 years old
5'7''
145 lbs

I just started bowling at the end of January, 2008. I picked up the sport to give myself something to do while away at school, to fill up some spare time. I have never been coached, or had a lesson.

Let me know what you guys think of the approach, and the swing. My main goal is to keep smooth tempo, solid timing, and to not muscle the ball. I have very little revs, and the speed isn't very fast (approx 16mph).

Ball:
Lane #1 Buzzbomb
2000 grit w/ polish
Drilled stacked 4x4
Very low TW and shorter pin, thus why the smaller reaction
Lanes were FRESHLY oiled, and heavy at that with little sidewall

Video 1 (shows approach, timing, and release)


Video 2 (good look at ball reaction)

As soon as I touch play, the videos go blank.

Here are the links. They work, I don't know why they are doing that in the original post.

You have a pretty nice approach for only bowling for such a short time. You are turning your hand a little early on the down swing, try just keeping your hand in position without trying to hook the ball, just keep your hand in position and let the ball roll off your hand.

I was going to say the same thing as Coach. You're rotating your hand a little early. How is the Buzzbomb? I've always been curious about Lane #1 ball.

idriveahonda You need to go to YouTube and enable embedding on your video's settings. You apparently have embedding disabled, that's why it won't play properly here. The community software converts the youtube links to embeded videos.

Thanks Admin. Even the next set went black on me. Why were others able to view them?

They went black on all of us as well, but he posted the links to his youtube profile so you could view the videos. That's how we did it.
