Quick Tip: Simple Targeting Tip


Whether you target at the arrows or any other place on the lane it’s important to focus on your target for longer than a split second.  Focusing on the target for a longer period will translate to better accuracy, and better physical mechanics.  I’ve found with a lot of youth bowlers with the get up and go fast fast fast attitude, this is a great way of “tricking” them into slowing down and getting set before they deliver the ball.  I have no doubts that this will translate well whether you are an adult or a youth.

I’d recommend starting by staring down your mark and counting to yourself (or aloud) 1001, 1002.  Then deliver the bowling ball.  If you use a focal point down lane to line up your shot you can do the same thing for this point as well.  So you’d go focal point for a 2 count, and then back to your closer target for a 2 count, then deliver the bowling ball.

Go ahead and try it and let me know how it works for you by leaving a comment below.

Bonus Tip: Take Your Time

I see a lot of bowlers who feel rushed when they get on the approach.  You should take an amount of time you need to get yourself set.  Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing, this is your turn.  Go through your pre-shot routine and make the most of each delivery.
