4) SPEED Speed really isn't an all important factor in getting your scores. Control and accuracy are much more important.If you are rolling a ball that is too fast, I suggest you shorten approach by two or three feet in order to cut down your backswing. Junie McMahon, Hall of Fame star, had almost no backswing at all, and he became one of East's all-time stars. If you want to generate more speed, simply increase height of your backswing. Or, a change to a lighter ball will work, too.
5) SPARE SHOOTING Many of more advanced bowlers stand to left of approach area when attempting to convert pins remaining on left side of lane. This is done to diminish possibility of "chopping," and I don't recommend it to newcomers. The left side of lane can be troublesome unless you have a precise understanding of just how ball is going to react.
6) DRIFTING Drifting simply means failure to approach foul line in a straight line. The remedies for this malady are simple. If you are drifting to right of approach, I suggest you keep your first step more to left than is normally proper. If you are drifting toward left, step off a bit to right on your first step.
7) BALL ROLLING OVER THUMB HOLE A ball that rolls over thumb hole sometimes causes loss of direction and thereby inaccuracy. Usually, a ball rolls in this way because bowler turns or breaks his wrist at time of his release. Or, again, it may be simply a case of thumb hole not fitting properly. Always, Index finger should be placed on ball. But don't be overly troubled by this. Just let your finger relax over contour of ball in a natural way.
