Learning how to bowl can sometimes be a daunting task, but we are here with some pointers on how to bowl like a pro. If it is your first time bowling (or if you just need a refresher), these tips from Mid County Lanes are for you
1. Find the Right Ball
Finding the perfect ball is a key component to bowling a good game. Typically, your bowling ball should be about 10 percent of your body weight. If you find that a ball that is 10 percent of your body weight feels uncomfortably heavy or light, you can check to see if the sizes below or above it feel right. In addition, you should never have to stretch your hand to fit your fingers in the holes of the bowling ball. Once again, comfort is key here. Once you find the right ball, you could even purchase your own!
2. Protect your Wrist
Your bowling hand should be in line with your wrist throughout your shot. Make sure to keep your wrist straight to avoid injury and bowl with correct form. If you are throwing a hook, you can rotate your wrist toward your body at the end of your swing to avoid bending it.
3. Eye of the Tiger
Always keep your eye on your target when you are bowling. Your arm and wrist will do what your brain tells it to, so there is no need to look at it or the ball. It also helps to follow through with your arm after you shoot, much like you would if you were throwing a baseball.
