In celebration of our Annual Bowling Party this Sunday, we thought it might be fun to provide you with a few bowling tips and tricks.
Following these few guidelines will insure your spot on the Pro Bowlers Tour...or, at the very least, make you the next "Roy Buckley" of the Racine/Waterford area.
Step 1: Make sure you have a good bowling ball...a ball that's not too heavy or too light.
Step 2: Get a good stance. Your stance is very important...it puts you in your comfort zone. So find a stance that feels good and is natural for you.
Step 3: Find a mark on the lane. There are seven arrows on the lane. It's best not to aim for the middle arrow as this could get you a split. If you're right handed then aim for the arrow to the right. If you are left handed aim for the arrow to the left.
Step 4: Release the ball. Be sure to release the ball in front of you and not behind you. And look at the arrows upon release...not at the pins. When you release the ball make sure your arm goes up for a better follow through.
Step 5: Follow through. During the second ball, you will want to aim at a spare, and remember...speed makes spares. Faster speed gives the ball less time to react and turn, equaling more accuracy. Practice a straight, consistent spare shot...cause you know what they say...anybody can strike, but not everybody spares.
