You say your PAP is 4.5" from PIN, but how do you know that if the ball isn't drilled? Your PAP is measured from the center of grip, drilling layouts are measured by PAP to PIN. I think you confused the two.

how does your track look on your ball? since you are a two handed bowler might want to work with the Pro Shop on this one because you may have a very odd track compared to most bowlers. I know a thumbless bowler who's track is backwards compared to regular bowlers (its close to his fingers but very far away from his thumbhole.)

It's not what style bowler but how you release that dictates the track. I've seen thumbless bowlers who have a track fairly even from the finger and thumb holes and thumb in bowlers who have inverted tracks. Also since the track dictates where the PAP is, knowing the PAP eliminates knowing where the track is, unless the track is flaring backwards.

how want to upload video here?

my ball already drilled for 3-4 times but i think that difficult to determind a better layout for me coz major pin distance is a short one

2-3 times before the track cross over my middle finger hole and then when trying to use my PAP, the track still have so close with my finger hole

here is the latest video of mine:


my skill and game not good enough. just start play bowling at the end of 2005 and convert to double handed style at the middle of the year 2007

The USBC is doing a study on two handed ball layouts, you will have to wait for the results like the rest of us, unless you have the money to buy 10 or so of the same ball and drill them all up differently.

i think what is handful saying is right because my track close to middle finger but far away from thumb hole. so difficult to get suite layout for me. always the track will hit my middle finger hole (little or half of it)
