This is fairly common even though most never identify the problem.
You have identified it and are aware of it. Now, you need to correct it.
The best way is to make sure that your hand and elbow are under the ball
at pushaway. At first, I suggest the you over-exaggerate it.
Don't worry about your accuracy right away......just focus on staying under the ball.
Rick from Westwood, MA:
I have been a 200+ average bowler for many years and a PBA member for 11 years. Whenever I complete my pushaway, my thumb automatically drops down causing me to lose revolutions upon release. I don't feel this hapenning but have seen it on tape. Any ideas?
Antony from Augusta, GA:
im just wondering if the ball that i purchase is already gonna be drilled or do i have to go have it drilled?
You can order the ball and send your specs to have it drilled.
Or, you can order it undrilled and have it drilled someplace else.
Matt from Evansville, IN:
Why would my polished balls react better and stronger than my dull ones do?
Polishing a ball makes it cleaner and smoother and allows the ball to maintain higher energy.
Russ from Pontiac, MI:
Hi phantom ...it's the up the board finesse power bowler from pontiac .thanks for the tip on getting the skid flip drilled for this .I see more back end reaction and pins are getting just crushed ..one thing I forgot to mention is that about 15 years ago I cut off most of the top of my right middle finger .it healed but after that I started bowling with my thumb ring finger and my pinkie .;) Yes my little pinkie I tried sarge Easter and back to coventional but my middle finger just felt Funny . U wouldn't believe the amount of revs I get by releasing off my pinkie and ring finger and the good ol scratch my ear , its all about finesse phantom .;) It's not how hard u hit them its where u hit them that matters ...I feel by your response I may finally know now what I'm talking about ...this is a great sport I love it and thank you phantom ;)
Thanks for the kind words.
Keep up the good bowling.
