  1. This shed some light on my missing high issues…I had always moved the opposite direction and tried to throw it straighter to keep those Brooks at bay.

    1. If you are right right-handed these are basically the Right Moves tonight a whole lot depends on your ball selection ball speed and so on down in in on the house shot is about the easiest way.

  2. This is the best timing for this video to come out I have league tonight and always struggle with this

    1. I just went 127 161 225 last night because I hate moving left but I said screw it and moved about 8 boards left after the 2nd half of the 2nd games. It took me a little bit to get used to it but it worked out and now if I need to move left I know what to do.

  3. Should mention that if a 10 pin is left on a house shot, you can take half a step to 1 step back to give it time to react on the lane and kick out the 10. I find this useful to people that have 1 ball or use 1 ball during a house shot league. Same with 7 pin, move up half a step or 1 step. If pocket 7-10 then slow the ball down by relaxing rather than tensing up and getting frustrated with the leave.

  4. I’ve been struggling with this very thing recently because a lot of times I know I need to make an adjustment but I don’t know how much and when to make the adjustment. Sometimes I think I’m just missing my mark, sometimes right and sometimes left. These are very helpful tips. Thanks for posting. 🙂

    1. dont feel bad im doing the same thing and my arm swing has been awful my avg is down 15 pins from last yr nothing is going right for me

    2. @jim ward it’ll get better. We all hit a plateau at one time or another, but it’s part of the journey. Your average will go back up. I’ve been in the high 140s/low 150s for several months and I’m still waiting for a 600 series.

    3. @Kristen Anderson ty for the kind words im in the same boat with you when it comes to 600 series none yet this season so far . and what really makes it bad the team im on is dead last and we got one guy who is avg 210 and i feel im letting him down . the other 3 guys are in the 140 or below . thats why i feel so bad letting my friend jim who is 210 avg .we lost close games and i know if i was bowling the way i can we would have won those games. but like you said this game can give you the highs and the lows

  5. This was my exact problem at practice last night. Bowled a lot of Brooklyns and when I didn’t strike, I left the 6-10, the 3-6-10, or the 5-9, all because the ball went high. It got better when I moved left, but I didn’t move my eyes enough, so this was a great tip. Thanks!

  6. Is it outside of the scope of this video to discuss how the board & distance of the breakpoint play into this equation; specifically, is the goal to make a move like:
    Slide 19, 15 at the arrows, to 7 @ 42′ and it becomes Slide 21, 16 at the arrows, to 7 @ 42′?

  7. That’s good getting ready to bowl state this weekend and If I go high I’m going to do this I think it be a great help

  8. Always happens in game 3 for me. I usually start at 20 board in game 1 in league. By game 3 I’m usually around 25-27 board.

  9. I’m confused – you said he moved his eyes 1 board, but his target went from the 12 to the 15th board according to the text on the video. What “1 board” adjustment did he make?

  10. So for those that are having issues with the ball not hooking enough and coming in light or (right side of pocket)
    would you recommend they do the exact opposite and move RIGHT rather than left? That’s the issue I tend to have
    when I’m bowling with a conventional one handed (thumb in ball) release. My rev rate is very low and if I fail to hit
    the pocket it’s typically going to be light (right side of pocket). However.. when I bowl two handed without the use
    of my thumb, my rev rates end up being quite a bit higher than my ball speed and that’s when I end up hitting to the
    left side of the pocket. Of course I approach and slide from completely different areas of the approach depending
    on whether I bowl one handed vs two handed. When I bowl one handed (thumb in ball) I usually slide right about
    where Marshall is sliding in this video. Between about board 25 to 17 ish. But when I bowl two handed I have to
    line up much further to the left and slide around board 40 to 30 ish.

  11. I did this leauge nite I avege 207 !!! You have to do your style too, down-and-in is not always in my favor for the house shot instead of me shooting a couple house shots I immediately go left and do my style I can’t successfully do both but down in the end is not my favorite thanks again guys for great content

  12. You have to move your feet unless you’re left handed in which case you just play the same spots all night long and just change balls
