Hello brown eyes,

Thank you for your feedback. We will make further updates to this article to include layout mapping instead of just the general purpose of a drilling layout. We have some other great drilling layout articles here on Bowlversity that may be of interest to you as well: https://www.bowlingball.com/article-list/layout

Thanks again.

Hello Gary,

It can be difficult at times to try to adjust to a bowling ball that is hooking too much. Without knowing exactly what kind of ball you are throwing and how, it is hard to suggest an exact solution online. Sometimes adding a bit of polish to the surface of your bowling ball can help it skid longer and hook later. You may also try keeping your palm flat through the ball to produce more forward roll. The best solution you should consider is consulting your local pro shop owner or a coach to see what can be done to help. They might suggest using a urethane or polyester ball that has very low hook potential.

Wishing you the best of luck on the lanes,
Jess

Hello Lenon,

This is a common factor for many bowlers. Most bowling coaches may suggest to simply look further right to compensate for the left-eye dominance, however, this doesn't always do the trick. Another method you may try is lengthening your target point at the exit point instead. It has been tested and proven that most left-eye dominate right hand bowlers have seen improved accuracy when targeting longer. Consider giving this method a try on your next practice session.

Good luck and good bowling.

Hello Clarence,

You mentioned a really important factor in our beloved sport... So many bowlers know and are familiar with different oil patterns, but there are still many that do not consider the different types of oil that can be used on the lanes. Just another variable to think about when preparing for a game. Hopefully you are able to make any adjustments needed for league this week.

Wishing you the best of luck,

Hello Craig,

If you plan on using your equipment in USBC sanctioned events, you must use a USBC approved ball cleaner or polish. Here is a list of all of the approved and non-approved cleaners:

Hi Ray,

We agree that throwing the ball too fast can absolutely jeopardize your bowling accuracy. Keeping your swing tension-free and uninhibited toward your target is crucial to a repeatable shot. It would be interesting to see what the SPECTO numbers of some of your fellow league members would be. You certainly can use the speed readout from an automatic scorer device at your local bowling centers but there are associated challenges to the information scorers provide. Often times the scores are not routinely calibrated for accuracy. The scorers speed readouts are measured at some distance before the ball impacts the pins so its measurements are not any of the key readings addressed above. These readouts cannot be an average speed because only one measurement is taken. Using SPECTO technology would allow for a more accurate representation of bowling ball speed. I could speculate that you and many other bowlers are actually throwing the ball faster than you may think.

Good luck and good bowling.

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You are so right about "forcing" the ball to hook. Tension can have an adverse affect on your physical movements and your judgement in making decisions. Relaxed muscles move swiftly whereas tight muscles move more slowly. Because of this, it is best to practice using as least amount of muscle tension in your bowling arm, legs, bowling shoulder, and neck.

Good luck and good bowling.

Hi Craig,

What kind of balls are your throwing currently? Have you tried stepping down to something more controllable, like a mid-performance pearl or hybrid reactive? Have you altered the surface of your current bowling balls? If so, what have you tried?

We'd be happy to assist you with some recommendations.
Thank you!

Hi Clarence,

I think many bowlers can relate to the exact situation you've described. So often times, we as bowlers get caught up in one physical part of our game, that we don't see how much it's affecting another part. Getting back to the basics and just focusing on visualizing the ball going through the pins is key. Keeping it simple :)

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
