Hey all. First off, I wanna apologize for causing neck pain. I've never taken a video before (from my phone) and didn't realize it'd upload like this.

Anyway, 2 videos of my dad bowling. He's been bowling for a good 30-40 years, and he's never gotten out of the "rubber" bowling ball era. He always wants to throw the ball to the pocket and just hope it works. He averages around 175 right now. I've been trying to get him adjusted and have a reactive bowling ball do the work for him, but he still forces the ball to the pocket.

Any tips I can pass a long to him would be appreciated. Again, sorry for the bad quality all around on it, but it was a "on-the-fly" thing.

Tell him to start his ball off earlier. He pushes off on at least his 2 step and causes him to be very late. This might also help with him muscling the ball, although, to really stop muscling the ball you must make a very conscious effort effort to do so.

I can see why he falls off to the left. He is walking on the wall. The Law of Gravity works all day.
