Do you want to become a better bowler? Well then, you’ve come to the right place. This article is where you will learn everything you know to become a better bowler. However, you should be warned that there is no easy better bowling, but there is practice. If you put what you learn here to the test, then you should become better overall. So, let’s get into it, shall we?
The first thing you need to know about bowling is that you need the right equipment. I mean, in every sport, finding the right equipment is paramount. So there is nothing different from bowling. First, you need to find a ball that’s weight is comfortable to you, and one that is easy for you to move fluidly with, and one that weighs enough to knock down the pins when needed. Also, you need to buy a pair of good bowling shoes. The equipment is essential to the success of bowling. You don’t want to slip down the lane, slip and drop the ball, or get hurt because you are wearing the wrong size bowling shoe, or they are too slippery. So get a good pair of bowling shoes, and keep them in good condition.
Another tip that will continue is to practice your shot. Practice makes perfect, and that’s no exception to bowling. You need to practice your shot consistently. Work on how to throw it, how hard to throw it, what spin to put in it, if any, and then keep using the same shot until it is perfected, and only then can you improve your shot. This part will take the longest of any of the processes here, but it is well worth practicing, and even when perfected, you may find a better way of shooting the ball and perfect that way.
Next up is standing in an upright, athletic position. Meaning that you need to stand up straight in a posture that is good for the body, and not slouching down to reach the floor faster. You need to put the ball in your chest or stomach and support the weight with the opposite hand. After you have all of that down, you will need to learn to stand with your knees bent so that you can move more flexibly and comfortably. Don’t allow your throwing arm to drop or sag in any way. You need your wrist to be strong to have a good throw, and that is how you stand perfect for your shot.
Another part of becoming a better bowler is to find your mark on the lane. There are a lot of hashes on the lane, and the arrows will guide you straight down. However, any good bowler knows that to get a strike and knock down all the pins, you need a curve on the ball. This part is where your markers will come in handy. These hashes also go hand in hand with perfecting your shot. You need to know where the ball needs to be released as well as where it needs to hit down the line to get your strike. Now, perfection isn’t always guaranteed, but with a lot of practice, you can get your shot perfect enough to get you a high game and win most of your matchups you play. Practicing all of this together can seem like a bit too much. However, it will do wonders for your game when you put these all into practice.
The final tip is one of the most crucial. You need to learn where to stand on the floor so that you can throw off perfectly, or nearly perfect, every time. After learning where to stand on the floor, you need to learn what foot you’re stepping off on, and four steps later are on your other foot. For example, if you’re right-handed, then you need to start on your left foot. Start with your feet shoulders length apart, and your knees bent. Then walk first with your left foot. Then step with the right foot, and lower the ball, on the second left foot, you need to swing the ball back, and shoot it forward when you land on your right foot for the final time. This kind of shot will help you perfect the shot, and is a good practice if you want to get better at bowling, or eventually want to take it on as a profession.
Let’s put all of that together in a nice little package so that it is easier to follow. First, you need all the right equipment, including an adequately weighted ball and good bowling shoes. Then you need to practice your shot, and when you perfect the shot, add in a stance with your finger in the holes, and your off-hand supporting the weight of the ball. Then, you need to work on finding your mark on the lane so that you know exactly where you need to hit on release and further down to get a strike. Missing by a hair could mean the difference between getting a strike and having to pick up a spare. Finally, when you have practiced all of that, and you’ve gotten good at it, you need to work on your footing, your steps, and your approach to the lane. Master all of those, and you’ll become a better bowler in no time at all.
