A Firm Approach an Important Key to a Higher Bowling Score
First, Thank You for your interest in bowling. Here are some tips on bowling for having a firm or a solid approach and how to stop falling off your shot in bowling
What I mean by a firm or solid approach is at the end of your delivery your feet are solid at the line. You do not lose your balance and do what is called falling off your shot. In this position you are in what I call your hood ornament pose. I call it that because you are like a hood ornament at the end of your approach. Newer techniques they like it if you have your opposite leg behind and off to the left of your slide foot for a right handed bowler (Note: everything is reversed if you are left handed).
How to tell if you are falling off your shot
Well it is really kind of easy to tell if you are falling off your shot because your right leg will fall off to the right at the end of your approach. (Note: reversed for left handed bowlers).
How to stop falling off your shot
Well first thing is knowing that you are doing it and being aware that it is throwing your balance off is your first step to solving this problem. I feel usually the reason bowlers are not firm at the point of delivery is because they are not in the right spot at the beginning of their approach. This is because most bowlers try to take to big of steps and stand back to far on the approach. They need to go back to the basics and learn where their starting spot is. You can learn this and more by getting Insider Bowling Tips a free bowling techniques newsletter. In the first few articles it explains the bowling basics. Now to stop falling off your shot just make sure your opposite leg is behind and off to the left of your slide foot at the end of your delivery, now this is for a right handed bowler. Reverse everything for left handers. In addition, learn how to get a smooth approach is another key to stop falling off your shot in bowling
Remember tips are only a tip that is all they are, if it does not work always go back to what did.
