Hey everyone.... I finally got around to posting a video of my approach and my shot. Let me know what you think. If you go to my youtube page, you will see an earlier video of me bowling. I think I have come a long way. My average is 20+ pins higher from 6 months ago. Still....let me know what you think.

CG - try to be nice! wink

Wow very much improved Howie. The next thing you need to work on is increasing your ball speed. Many of your shots were going high, mostly because of lack of speed. To increase your speed, try holding the ball 6" higher and step back 6 to 18" on the approach so your feet will have enough room to speed up to match the swing. Don't think about speeding your feet up, just do everything the same and let it happen naturally.

Keep up the good work, you are almost to the point where someone would have to be there with you to help you as you are looking pretty good as far as online video quality goes.

A lot of the shots looked good. I noticed that on a few of them, you got tentative, and it looked like you slowed down the initial drop of the ball, which led to muscling the rest of the swing, and you pulled the ball. You can't see it on the right lane so much, but the shots around 1:00 and 1:20 stood out. Your backswing is already pretty high, so the CoachJim method may depend on your being able to speed your feet up, which will add that speed to your ball as long as you keep the release clean (it looked like a couple of them were grabbed a bit, which slowed the ball down). If that doesn't add enough though, don't be afraid to move left. Your release looks a lot better now - it still looks like you spin it a bit, but your hand is in a much better position on the ball now.
