    1. Because for most of us, before every shot, there should be a moment of composing yourself and preparing for the shot. Be aware of oil conditions, review what happened the last frame when you bowled on this particular lane. Repeat the shot if you struck, adjust your target, ball speed, or entry angle if you missed. There’s a lot to prepare for. This drill is for those who tend to over-prepare and end up throwing the ball with no smoothness because you are stuck on mechanics.

    1. No, the tip is to not overthink, don’t freeze in the ready position and do a million checklist things if that’s what’s you’ve been overdoing. The tip is: Pick up the ball, walk up to the lane, and in a natural motion just do your push-off, back-swing, then swing your arm forward and release. We’ve all built up some muscle memory and your body already knows the proper rhythm and timing. This drill allows you to throw the ball without tightening up and overthinking, as lots of us do.
