Stick the landing and hit the target
Hey Shannon Great Video! I would always have trouble keeping balance at the foul line and I hope this tip will work!
Glad it was helpful!
Shannon great video. I am 77 and I want to deliver the ball into the lane like you do..
You can do it!
@InsideBowling quick question as a two handed ( myself ) I have a problem with consistency and moving when I need too any pointers or tips my avg is 172 I’ve been bowling for 2 years I’m 15
Awesome video. The best coaching team I’ve ever watched.
Always back to the fundamentals that make us better bowlers.
I worked on this exact aspect a year and a half ago! My shot consistency went up, my release became more consistent and my average increased for that year! Yes, it took a lot of work, both physical and mental, but SO worth it. Thank you, again, Shannon for everything you share.
Shannon I been following u in action games your supper. Thanks for the tip
Every one is different I will keep trying
To better my average.
When I committed to posting my shot for EVERY shot (strikes and spares) “magically” my scores improved. And having good leg and core strength helps you post a quality shots. 🙂
Love everything you post!!!!
Your absolutely correct but when you get older have have a bad knee landing on the left foot can be really hard
My left knee is shot. I had to relearn to bowl without sliding. Not easy.
I need to slide a little it’s when I stick at the line is when it hurts my knee
The one step approach is something the professional instructor,s taught me when I was 14. I used it again to experiment with a different release that increased my average in league play . In a 36 week year I gained 30 pins on my average in the last 16 weeks. Went from 171 to 201.
When you post your shot right, you get your balance and it feels great.
I notice that I am so inconsistent when I am out of balance. I agree with Shannon. It may not look like the pro’s do this but I bet they do.
Should I swing my arm 5-7 times after the ball is gone for extra good balance?
Thanks Shannon you are so true to the game practice makes you better Thanks for this video
When I get lazy I step off to the side….so bad….I try to post on every shot…it really works…great tip.
I definitely notice a difference and know when I didn’t post my shot. If the ball isn’t coming out right, generally my finish isn’t right either.
Good overall fitness and leg strength will make holding the post easier
Thanks, I was looking for specific topic. Been working on my 4 step approach and release but still struggling with balance on the post. At first I felt dumb doing the one step drill at the alley alone until I was talking to one of the pros there and he told me that I’m not practicing it enough.
The left leg curl for balance/accuracy.
Finished position. Exactly.
Hi Shannon. I throw a backup ball and there’s no information for me on here to help me.
