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 shortenrepparttar 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 ofrepparttar 143897 East's all-time stars. If you want to generate more speed, simply increaserepparttar 143898 height of your backswing. Or, a change to a lighter ball will work, too.

5) SPARE SHOOTING Many ofrepparttar 143899 more advanced bowlers stand torepparttar 143900 left ofrepparttar 143901 approach area when attempting to convert pins remaining onrepparttar 143902 left side ofrepparttar 143903 lane. This is done to diminishrepparttar 143904 possibility of "chopping," and I don't recommend it to newcomers. The left side ofrepparttar 143905 lane can be troublesome unless you have a precise understanding of just howrepparttar 143906 ball is going to react.

6) DRIFTING Drifting simply means failure to approachrepparttar 143907 foul line in a straight line. The remedies for this malady are simple. If you are drifting torepparttar 143908 right ofrepparttar 143909 approach, I suggest you keep your first step more torepparttar 143910 left than is normally proper. If you are drifting towardrepparttar 143911 left, step off a bit torepparttar 143912 right on your first step.

7) BALL ROLLING OVER THUMB HOLE A ball that rolls overrepparttar 143913 thumb hole sometimes causes loss of direction and thereby inaccuracy. Usually, a ball rolls in this way becauserepparttar 143914 bowler turns or breaks his wrist atrepparttar 143915 time of his release. Or, again, it may be simply a case ofrepparttar 143916 thumb hole not fitting properly. Always,repparttar 143917 Index finger should be placed onrepparttar 143918 ball. But don't be overly troubled by this. Just let your finger relax overrepparttar 143919 contour ofrepparttar 143920 ball in a natural way.

It took him right out ofrepparttar world rankings and ultimately offrepparttar 143854 tour. He is now commentating and doing a great job.

Here’s a golf training tip that will help your backswing range of motion, enabling you to have a much higher clubhead speed and quickly improve your driving distance.

I call itrepparttar 143855 Backswing Shoulder Stretch:

•Extend left arm out in front of you (if you are a right handed golfer), in a handshake position, thumb pointing skyward. •Take right hand and put under left wrist, sorepparttar 143856 back ofrepparttar 143857 hands are touching each other. •Pull with right hand against left wrist and make as big a turn on back swing as possible. •Hold for at least 15 seconds, repeat two more times. •Reverserepparttar 143858 stretch to workrepparttar 143859 follow through.

As you can see this is a simple golf training tip, but one that is very effective if you do it consistently. This is a great stretch to do throughout your round to maintain a full backswing.

This is just one golf training tip that can have a big impact on your performance; and is well worth trying.
