13 Comments on “Two Quick Tips to Bowl More Strikes from Professional Bowler Shannon O’Keefe”

    1. I can they put out this exact info on another video like 11 monthes ago. I know because I just watched it last night after league. I’d say it is timely advice but that is lazy to put out the exact same content without any changes

  1. would technically switching from a solid of a ball that leaves flat 10’s to a pearl version of the ball be considered “stronger”? Even if they are the same coverstock. It usually helps me kick out the 10 pin. Is this a wrong adjustment to make?

    1. In Shannon’s example when she mentioned “stronger” she went to larger core/coverstock ball. In short both her recommendation and yours are correct, although with a pearl you’ll want to open the lane up a bit more with a steeper angle. There are times where a weaker or same ball with a different finish can accomplish the feat. Its important to watch how your ball comes off the pattern and how it continues through the pins, that will determine your next move(s).

    2. it depends. switching to a pearl version of a ball will just make ur ball skid longer and snap harder. if that’s the kind of reaction you need to get ur ball to finish strong and kick out 10 pins then go for it.

  2. As far as moving outside, into the friction: if house shots already have a very defined dry outside area, wouldn’t intentionally sending the shot into the dry cause the ball
    hook too soon?

    1. That’s the point – this is to make the adjustment for ringing 10’s and 7’s. You wouldn’t just move into the friction on a house shot for no reason, Some people just keep moving left (If they are RH, and right, if they are LH). She’s like “hey” move the other direction and you will strike! Now go get’m Tiger!

  3. Not very explanatory move to the right do you move your spot that you toes are on or do you move the ball to the right or both how much of each? Some idea would be nice. Then you talk about a bigger stronger ball I’ve been bowling for 40 years I can only assume that means one with a soft surface that will grip better but I have no idea a little better explanation on that also would be very helpful.
