The General And Necessary Bowling Tips

Aug 17, 2007
How to hit every spare dead centre,using the best angle to get strikes and spares, how to improve with your control and consistency, etc. are some of the things that we tried to help gives more clarification.

Try to hit every spare "dead center."
Do not be satisfied with merely converting the spare in any fashion at all. Concentrate on the exact spot you wish to hit. It stands to reason that if you are hitting the key pin on the wrong side and still managing to convert the spare through a lucky bounce off the kickback or in some other fashion, you are courting disaster. Bowling is a game in which the law of averages inevitably takes its toll. You cannot keep on being lucky forever. So shoot to make your spares correctly. "Cover" your pins.

Finishing properly is just as important as starting properly. Getting started on the correct foot, using a smooth push away to get the ball in motion, timing the movement of your hands and body, and other such procedures do little good if you suddenly decide at the last second to "overpower the pins." You might succeed in getting a strike on that particular throw (you will note I didn't say "roll"), but in so doing you are asking for trouble in succeeding frames, for you have thrown your timing off and may find it difficult to regain it. Remember to check yourself occasionally on the various phases of finishing properly making sure that you are not falling into bad habits.

Use the best angle to get strikes and spares
Because of the angle at which the ball strikes the pins, it would not do for the average bowler rolling a hook or curve to start his delivery from the extreme left side of the approach. On the other hand, a bowler using a backup delivery (one that fades to the right), should not begin from the middle. In shooting at spares, remember to "give the ball all the alley space possible." For the 7-pin, you should begin your roll from the right-hand side. For the 10-pin, start from the left-hand side, and so on. The 6-10 spare, for instance, should be played from the left-hand side so that the ball not only takes advantage of the width of the lane but also comes into the pins at a better angle to topple the 10-pin after hitting the 6-pin. Always bear in mind that your percentage of scoring is increased when you play from the proper angle. Control and consistency give bowling improvement. Even the poorest bowlers sometimes roll a 200 game, but the better bowlers, and in particular the experts, do it often. The star bowler depends upon his control and consistency to keep his average high. But he wasn't born with either. He had to develop both over a long period of time and through plenty of practice. Actually, consistency means the ability to use your control time after time. So keep after your game and be willing to practice. It will pay dividends in higher scores.

Overturning a ball is easier than turning it properly
If you observe the topnotchers closely, you will see that they try to put just as much "stuff" on the ball as possible without losing control. It is unfortunately true that all too many low-average bowlers simply try to put a lot of "stuff" on the ball without regard for control of the tricky delivery. The fallacy of this lies in their trying to impress their friends or in seeking to take a "short cut" to high scoring by trying to master this difficult delivery before they have even come close to mastering the simple fundamentals of approach and delivery.

Perfection in fundamentals means higher scores
The success of one very famous collegiate football team may be traced, in part, to the idea of its coaches that a team well versed in fundamentals can beat the biggest or trickiest of foes. Consequently, when this school's first football practice is called each season, every man, regardless of his ability in high school or in previous college years, is given a thorough and painstaking grounding in such fundamentals as blocking and tackling. Bowling is exactly the same. The more perfect your grasp of fundamentals, the more consistently high scores you will roll, for you are then repeating, time after time after time, the same exact steps, the same swing of the ball in rhythm with the hands, body and feet, the same backswing and the same release. You will be as close to a machine as it is possible to get.

It is very important to keeps your basics right when playing the bowling game. And perfecting the fundamentals could means higher scores. So makes it sure that you are well aware of the basic tricks of the game of bowling to score high points when the next time you go for playing it.
