Q: When we hear Bowling Back Breakers what does it mean?

A: If you are a relatively new bowler or one who is trying to progress in the game, there are a few bowling back breakers prohibiting progress in the game.

In any athletic endeavor there are always a few things which can derail your path to improvement.

Here are a few back breakers you must try and avoid:

1. Sticky approaches - Check the approach sliding areas by making practice slides before delivering your first shot of each session on the lanes. Check the corner sliding areas of the lanes you are set to bowl on to ensure you do not stick (or slip) and fall or foul by stepping over the foul line during competition.

2. Warm up deliveries - Don’t throw your ball too fast before warming up properly. Make the first few deliveries when warming up at a much slower speed than your normal operating ball speed. It is important to work up to your full ball speed than try and heave the ball your first deliveries. Establish a good tempo by warming up to the task.

3. Expect the unexpected - Do not assume you can play the lanes the same way you are accustomed to playing. Lane conditions can vary for a variety of reasons. Use your favorite bowling ball to warm up and to read the lane conditions and then keep an open mind to make adjustments in your initial strike ball alignment. Remember, your feet are not nailed to the approach. It is OK to move your alignment positioning to match with your delivery style and with the lane conditions.

4. Don’t be bashful to move - Once lane conditions change from the amount of linage accumulated by all the bowlers rolling shots on the same lanes during competition, make an assessment of how much you need to adjust and then trust your decision. Knowing how to adjust and which adjustments from your bag of tricks are the most likely to be successful and then implementing the adjustment is a key in making real progress as a player.


5. Speed kills - Avoid getting too fast with your steps when you get excited in competition. Trying to force your delivery and hurrying your swing and your steps is a sure way to begin making errant shots. Develop a constant tempo to use throughout your session on the lanes.

6. Rifle your shots at spares - If you are prone to throwing your ball harder at spares than you routinely do at strike deliveries, then expect problems converting spares. The corner pin spares are crucial to pick up and if you try and heave the ball faster than you can control the direction of the shot, you invite accuracy problems. Use a spare ball to reduce unexpected hook and use your best ball speed where you can control your shot, particularly at corner pin spares.

It is no secret that the more you practice, the more familiarized you become with the tricks of the trade. Avoid these back breakers listed above and work on your game in a proactive way.

To best know your game, get out and practice as often as time and money permit. Practice your spares more than strikes. Cutting down on the amount of open frames you record in a typical three game league session, as example, will help you raise your average.

If you have any concerns about aspects of your game, consult an experienced bowling instructor.

Q: I know lots of bowlers wants this "Bowling Reminder Tips"

A: If you are struggling a bit with your game, try using a couple of quick, bowling reminder tips.

There are simple ways to remind yourself of keys to making good shots during competition.

One key is to keep everything simple and use a few anchors to bring the image of what you wish to accomplish to the forefront of your mind.

Anchors are simple words or phrases which bring important thoughts to your mind.

Here are a few ideas for reminder tips you can use next time you feel the need to focus on important areas of your game:

1. smooth start - this tip relates to not hurrying your first step or beginning your swing cycle with any type of jerky or abrupt motion.

2.walk softly - do not dig in and thrust your steps in anticipation of getting into your slide step where you release your bowling ball.

3. keep your eyes fixed on your spot - focus on your target on the lane throughout your aim and while you take your approach. you must tell your brain how to signal your body where you wish to deliver your bowling ball.

4. wait for your swing - avoid hurrying your forward swing to the point where grab the ball at the top of your backswing and force your delivery. Forcing your delivery can only lead to poor shots.

5. hold your form - make sure you maintain good balance as you release your ball. Moving your head or torso in the act of releasing your ball can lead to errant shots. Hold your delivery position until the ball reaches your on-lane sighting target to ensure good balance.

If you develop words or phrases (anchors) to use as reminders before stepping onto the approach, you will focus on the keys in your game to make good shots.

Bowling reminder tips are very useful in keeping the keys to making good shots when you are in pressure bowling situations in the forefront of your mind. Short and simple phrases are easy to recall and will not confuse your thought process as you prepare to make important deliveries in competition.

Q: What do we mean by Bowling Downhill?

A: Have you ever felt as though you were bowling downhill and could do no wrong?

You sensed that everything you did produced positive results and you could not miss.

You find yourself getting into “stroke” and just cruising through the frames striking often while converting all your spares when you were not striking.

This feeling of being on auto-pilot and just rolling along is a welcomed feeling to any competitive bowler.

However, all good things seem to come to an end. You go from bowling as well as possible to not being able to make anything work. It can happen suddenly because the game owes you nothing.

A little extra speed with your steps or trying to force your release just a bit when anticipating the next strike or a scoring result are the culprits which cause your ball to stop reacting predictably.

You will begin to lose pin carry or worse yet, you cease hitting the pocket.

In any sport there are always things which can stop your momentum and force you to struggle.

It is the task of the top players in the game to recognize when things are not going their way and to make adjustments or corrections to get things back on track.

The same challenges confront every bowler from time to time, yourself included.

When this happens, have a plan to “stop the scoring bleeding” and begin to turn around results and get back to the positive results you were previously enjoying.

There are a number of things you can do to back into the swing of things:

1. relax - lose the tension in your arms and legs and make a smooth approach making sure you are not speeding up your steps in anticipation of making a good shot.

2. consistent grip pressure - avoid grabbing at your bowling ball when your backswing reaches its full height from the floor. Maintain the same grip pressure throughout your entire swing cycle.

3. focus on your target - keep your eyes on your spot on the lane and remind your brain where you want to deliver the ball and at which delivery path angle you seek.

4. balance - keep your head still as you walk. Avoid unneeded body motion during your approach to simplify your overall movement.

5. follow through - make certain you complete your follow through swing motion without decelerating your swing and slowing down your bowling hand during your forward swing.

Focus on these simple keys to success and declutter your mind from negative thoughts.

Think only about what you must do right before beginning your approach then allow these things to happen.

Update your thinking following each shot to what you must make happen and forget the results from the previous shot.

Keep making your best swings and trust your decisions when making adjustments. Eliminating doubt when things are not going the way you wish is a big step to reversing the results to a more desirable outcome.

Q: When you hear this, this is not a joke, Work Hard Today For Better Bowling Scores Tomorrow!

A: If you are someone new to the game or averaging 160 or below, I want to address this article to your group of bowlers.

Obvious tips we can share with you are owning your bowling bowling equipment. Having your bowling balls custom fit to your hand is an integral part of the game and sets you up for consistent deliveries and improving accuracy.

We also recommend using the services of an experienced bowling instructor, one who is knowledgeable working with new bowlers or ones looking to improve their game skills.

The high average bowlers seem to be steady and produce admirable scores year in and year out.

There is a reason why highly skilled players are able to do so. At some point, they developed their games where they can repeat good shots through consistent footwork, good body posture, and a reliable swing and with a stable release motion.

You can advance to that level of improved physical game skills by using the services of an experience instructor to help you identify and develop the techniques you need to improve.

Once you develop your skill set, you will notice improvement in your shotmaking, accuracy, and learn to make good alignment and adjustments decisions regardless of your age or physical strength.

By taking even just one bowling lesson, you can learn these important fundamentals of the game, if you are not already doing so.

Practice makes perfect, or near perfect when it comes to physical activities such as bowling. Putting in the work after learning good techniques from your instructor is the biggest step you can take once you understand which areas of your game require the most practice.

Once you are able to make consistent deliveries and hit your mark on the lane reasonable consistently, then you can work as hard on picking up routine spares as you do hitting the pocket and making good shots.

Starting out properly in the game gives you the best chances at success. You will enjoy your time bowling when you learn about the game, about key fundamentals of the game, and when you work at developing reliable skills to last you a lifetime.

Avoid shortcuts to save a little money when first learning the game. Your pro shop professional and your personal bowling instructor are key people to get involved in your inner circle to help you develop your game.

Q: What do we mean by Bowling Ball Traction?

Bowling ball traction determines the skid length distance your ball travels before entering the hook phase of ball motion.

The skid phase of ball motion is the initial phase and directly corresponds to the skid distance your ball travels on the front end of the lane.

With less friction, the faster your ball moves. The more friction a ball has, the slower it travels down the lane.

Friction is a result of the ball surface texture and the amount of traction the ball surface provides in the heaviest concentration of lane oil on the front end of the lane. The more texture the surface has, the more traction the ball will have to react on the lane surface.

Friction and traction are affected by several factors including the ball's shape, by its weight, and the its surface texture. All of these factors affect friction when your ball is in contact with the lane.

A ball will lose velocity and slow down as it travels down any given lane. Friction and traction are the main causes of this loss of velocity.

The magnitude of the friction and traction between the bowling ball and bowling lane depends on what the ball surfaces are made of, the texture of the ball surface, the amount of oil on the lane, and the mass of the ball.

As example, a heavy ball will retain its speed at a greater rate than will a lighter weight ball but the amount of traction the ball generates depends of the surface texture and corresponding friction factor.

Some lanes will have little oil conditioner while others will have heavier concentrations of oil placed on the lane surface in predetermined volumes and ratios.

The density and location of the oil on the lane will affect of the ball skid distance and hook potential as it travels along the lane.

The more oil that is laid down, the less traction there is between the ball and the lane surface. The less friction, the straighter a ball will travel for a greater distance than with more friction.

How much traction a bowling ball has as it moves down a lane is largely determined by how oily the lane is and how much oil the ball retains in the coverstock.

A bowling ball's surface can collect this oil over time from contact with the lane surface due to the fact that the surface of the ball is slightly porous.

As the surface of a ball is altered either by time and use or by routine surface maintenance and texturing procedures, the ball may will gain or lose friction when in contact with the lane.

Modern bowling balls are extremely versatile due to planning by the manufacturers and by the material composition used in the manufacturing process. The coverstock of these bowling balls is the key in determining the degree of traction your ball will present in conjunction with the oil conditions of the lanes.

With some help from your pro shop professional and a basic understanding of bowling ball surface maintenance, you can control the traction and skid length potential of your bowling equipment.
