Bowling Strikes - How to Find Your "Strike Ball"

so,u also can know how to find your strike ball.....i tak lah pro sgt...but i only want to share with all my love fren.....

Choose Your Starting Position

If you're like any other bowler in the world, you want to throw a strike on every shot. But, if you're like any other bowler in the world, you know it's a lot harder to do than to say.
Finding your "strike ball," meaning your shot you can consistently throw and with which you have good results, is very important as it's the basis for adjustments, spares and improving your game overall.
To find your strike ball, you need to find your starting position. Begin by lining up your left shoe with the middle dot on the approach. Place your right foot wherever is comfortable for you and your bowling style. For left-handed bowlers, do the same, but with the opposite feet.

Choose Your Target
Aim for the second arrow from the right of the lane, which is about 15 feet past the foul line (lefties aim for the second arrow from the left). The goal is to have your ball roll directly over this arrow on its way toward the pins.
Why is this a good starting point? On most house oil patterns, most of the oil is in the middle of the lane. Throwing your ball on the outside will give you more traction down the entire lane.

  Watch Your Shot
 Take note of what happens. Did you hit the pocket dead on, resulting in the greatest strike of your life? Did you miss right or left? By how much? By paying attention to what your ball does, you’ll know how to adjust your subsequent shots in the quest to find your strike ball.

 Adjust Your Starting Position
 If you consistently hit the pocket from the initial starting position, you found your strike ball. Keep throwing it.
Otherwise, move in the direction of your miss. That is, if you missed left, move a few boards to your left on the approach. If you missed right, move right. This might seem backward, but a right-handed bowler misses left because his ball hooked too early. Moving to the left on the approach and aiming for the same arrow will force the ball farther down the lane before hooking into the pins. That's why, at this point, you should always aim for the same arrow.

                         GOOD LUCK......FOR MAKSPEN AT BANDAR PENAWAR,JOHOR....
